When GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Darby passed around an STI this summer, Kiki, Dillon, Morgan and some viewers may have rolled their eyes at the sexually promiscuous Port Charles local… but Hayley Erin (Kiki) and Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon) weren’t on that train!
While Watkins contends with a laugh that Darby is certainly “aggressive,” he and his co-star aren’t judging. “Darby’s shameless and I love it,” Erin cheers. “When Kiki said the STI was her fault, she was like, ‘Woah, don’t point the finger at me! I’m no worse than the rest of you.’ She wouldn’t be shamed, and good for her! I somehow found myself rooting for her, against my own character — and that rarely happens.”
It may help that the castmembers adore recurring player Jesica Ahlberg (Darby) for both driving story and being… well, nice. “In real life, she’s so sweet,” Watkins shares. “So it’s so funny she plays this mega-bitch.”
