With his decades as GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Scott Baldwin, Kin Shriner has worked with his fair share of actresses, so when Soaps In Depth asked him to name his favorite leading lady, it was naturally a little difficult to pick just one!
“When you want to have high jinks, fun, camp, and comedy, there’s nobody better than Lynn Herring (Lucy),” Shriner declared. “If you want to go back in history, there’s Jackie [Zeman, Bobbie] and Genie [Francis, Laura] — and I always loved working with Robin Mattson (ex-Heather) back in the day.”
Nobody could have predicted Scott and Obrecht’s unlikely romance, though there were plenty of viewers who wanted him with Ava once upon a time. And Shriner himself loves working with her portrayer, Maura West. “When I look at my script and see that I’ve got a scene with Ava Jerome, I know this is going to be fun,” he confided. “Maura West gets a chance to show some of her comedic skills, and I certainly enjoy those scenes.”
And as much fun as the actor has had with his leading ladies on the set throughout the years, those friendships have also continued off-screen. “It’s like people who went to college together,” he mused, “and because we’ve still been intertwined throughout the years on GH, we’ve remained close. I speak to Lynn three times a week, and I still speak to Jackie all the time. I speak with Genie when I’m at the studio, and I hang out with my new friends, too.”
So keep watching GH to enjoy even more of Shriner’s chemistry with his leading ladies… and see who might be added to the list in the future!
