If you missed the hilarious moment when Lulu dumped a pitcher of margaritas over Britt’s head on GENERAL HOSPITAL or just want to watch it again and again, we’ve got you covered! Plus, Emme Rylan and Kelly Thiebaud spilled some behind the scenes secrets (with a cameo appearance from Kelly Monaco (Sam) that if you blink you might miss!).
In the hallway of the GH studio just outside the stage door, Rylan recalled that she was surprised at just how much liquid that pitcher held. “Okay, so from my perspective, I start dumping that margarita mix over you and like, it kept coming out,” she confessed to her castmate. “And I’m like, oh my God, I’m gonna drown her!” She was also thrilled by the luck that caused one of the limes to just stick right to Thiebaud’s forehead at the end. “There was like, two limes in the bottom of the pitcher,” Rylan revealed. “Like, it could not have happened more perfectly. And you looked up at me so angry with this one lime stuck to you…”
The two women then dissolved into a fit of laughter recalling the moment. “It literally felt like, you know when you swim and you go under like, a waterfall?” Thiebaud confided. “That’s literally what it felt like. It never ended! And it was definitely more than I expected. I did feel something on my head. I just thought it was a lot of water. I didn’t really know it was a lime, but that is hilarious!”
The actresses had only one take to get this right, so they just jumped right in and hoped for the best! (And don’t worry, the pitcher was just filled with water, not actual alcohol or juice.) Check out some behind the scenes footage from when they shot the scene as well as more backstage secrets right here!
