Anna Devane!!

me and Finola Hughes, originally uploaded by starrgirl77.

I don't know about any of you, but I was a HUGE fan of General Hospital in high school. One of my fondest memories was being over my friend Kristin's house when Duke returned to the show and finally revealed to Anna that he was her husband! (He'd had major plastic surgery, of course!) I remember just bawling my eyes out at the poignant scene.

So it was pretty cool today to meet Anna -- aka Finola Hughes -- in person at the Better TV studios where I work. She was really nice and approachable. Really tiny in real life, too, as stars always seem to be. She's very into green living and was saying her house in California is almost self-sufficient and soon won't need external power to run. Pretty cool!

Anyway, just brings back memories of General Hospital and all my favorite characters so I thought I'd share!

She's actually returning to the show again now that her daughter Robin is pregnant. She was always one of my favorite characters, and I also loved her in Staying Alive!

Robin's pregnant? Doesn't she have HIV? (I swear she got it when I was in college which was like 10 years ago!) I'm so behind!!

Yes, she does, but she got pregnant by the hot new doctor Patrick Drake through a faulty condom. She's now a doctor at GH. It's a whole HIV/pregnancy storyline.
