Ever since Jax and Nina hooked up on GENERAL HOSPITAL, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) has been missing former leading lady Cynthia Watros (Nina) — and he jokingly blames her predecessor for the betrayal! “This drama is all thanks to Michelle Stafford making those lovey-dovey eyes at Ingo Rademacher (Jax) at the Nurses Ball last year!” Stuart said of the co-star who exited GH to return to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Phyllis last year.
“It’s funny,” he added. “I look at that early episode when Nina had Indian food with Jax in the Crimson office and I can see it. I know Michelle: She knew there was money to be made in a triangle, so she worked it. Dammit, Michelle! Now, we have no choice. We’re doomed.”
All teasing aside, Stuart digs the drama and has no hard feelings when it comes to Stafford. “She’s such a class act,” he raved. “I just love her. And I love working with Cynthia. I’m one lucky guy!”
