I first watched General Hospital in early 1964, less than a year after its April 1, 1963, premiere. John Beradino (above as Steve) and Emily McLaughlin (Jessie) were original cast members with Rachel Ames (Audrey) joining the cast during the first year. Cast members have come and gone; none of the original ones remain. Some have been favorites, some have been great villains to hate and others never sparked my interest.
One of my favorite current characters is Damian Spinelli (aka Jackal, PI) played by Bradford Anderson. Bradford has started a New Year’s Resolution Pound For Pound Charity Challenge! Read his blog entry and follow the links for details. Take it off with Bradford!
(Note added in February, 2014: The Challenge has long since ended and the blog is no longer available.)
