It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun. Can you believe that it has been 32 years since Kimberly McCullough first appeared as Robin Scorpio on GENERAL HOSPITAL? The actress/dancer/director made her debut as the daughter of super-spies Robert Scorpio and Anna Devane in 1985 and became an immediate success. “32 years?” she marveled on Twitter. “Whoa, nelly. Thank you for your support through it all!”
Even at a young age, McCullough delivered powerful performances that just got better as she got older. In 1986, she won the Young Artist Award for Outstanding Young Actress in a Regular Daytime Serial and took home the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in both 1989 and 1996. And while many children on soap operas are rapidly aged into adults, it’s a testament to McCullough’s talent that GH has let fans watch her grow up in real time. You can watch McCullough grow up all over again in the video below!
Although McCullough still returns to Port Charles for the occasional visit, she’s been very busy with her new career as a director, helping episodes of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS and ONE DAY AT A TIME. She’s also enjoying her other job as a new mom, welcoming her baby boy Otis into the world in June of this year.
Please join us in congratulating McCullough on her anniversary, and best wishes for continued success in life! For more on your favorite GH stars — past and present — keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
