The ABC synergy machine just keeps on churning! WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE and host Meredith Vieira will celebrate 50 years of GENERAL HOSPITAL with two special episodes featuring Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) as contestants, airing Monday, April 1, and Tuesday, April 2!
The actors filmed a soap-inspired scene with Vieira, which will be shown on MILLIONAIRE’s April 1 broadcast. The host — who recently appeared on GH as Lucy’s CoCo Cosmetics assistant — shows off her acting chops in a playful scene that involves negligees, martinis… and face-slapping! The audience for these special shows is filled with GH superfans, who were treated to surprise set visit by another fan favorite!
Playing as a two-person team, Hughes and Thompson will donate their winnings to The Art of Elysium, a non-profit organization that works closely with actors, artists and musicians, encouraging them to volunteer their time and talent to children battling serious medical conditions.
