Cynthia Watros Shares Some GENERAL HOSPITAL Backstage Magic!


Soap stars are known for looking glamorous and gorgeous on screen, but GENERAL HOSPITAL star Cynthia Watros (Nina) would like to remind fans that it takes a lot of hard work to look that good! The actress shared a pair of videos on Twitter taken in her dressing room that showed the magic that the soap’s hair and makeup teams work every day.

“So this is how I come in,” Watros said, gesturing to her makeup-free face sporting glasses and her blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail. “This magic here. And I’ll show you after my talented friends do my hair and makeup. It’s a lot different.”

The actress then showed off a lovely arrangement of flowers she’d received and thanked the fans who sent it to her before signing off and heading to the GH hair and makeup department. And when she posted another video to twitter a little later that day, Cynthia had turned into Nina!

“If you saw my previous video, I came in no makeup, my hair… I just washed my hair, put it back into a ponytail, and then… ta-dah!” she exclaimed, showing off her lovely makeup and styled hair. “Almost like magic. But I have some beautiful hair and makeup people who do my hair and makeup amazingly. But just to let you know, we don’t wake up like this. It’s a lot of work!”

There’s a very good reason that the GH hair and makeup teams have multiple Daytime Emmy Award nominations and wins under their belts!
