On May 11, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Kin Shriner (Scotty) shared a behind-the-scenes photo on Twitter of him sitting at the Metro Court bar with actress Trish Ramish, who plays the hostess at the popular Port Charles eatery, standing in the background. The picture was taken by one of GH’s camera operators, according to Shriner, who felt compelled to share the snapshot on his Twitter profile. “Barb, camera 1, took a pic of Scotty and Metro Court hostess Trish Ramish circa yesterday, waiting for the action to start on GH,” he wrote.
After Shriner posted the photo, many of his followers responded that they were thrilled to get an inside peek at the backstage happenings at the ABC soap. But there is more to the seemingly random photo than meets the eye: Ramish is Shriner’s longtime real-life girlfriend and has actually appeared on GH on and off since 2019!
An actress and dancer in her own right, Ramish had starred on Broadway in A Chorus Line; traveled the world with Cher as one of the superstar’s dancers; was a backup dancer in TV shows and movies like FAME and A Night At The Roxbury; and made guest appearances on FRASIER, DWEEBS, and SILK STALKINGS. After meeting Shriner back in 1994, Ramish accompanied her beau to several industry events over the years, like the Daytime Emmy Awards.
Then, in 2019, Ramish was given the opportunity to share the screen with her beau when GH hired her to play Trish, the red-carpet coordinator for that year’s Nurses Ball. The real-life couple even shared a cute reel-life moment when Trish shot down Scotty’s flirtatious advances!
Since then, Ramish has made several appearances on the soap as the Metro Court bartender and hostess, which means that she gets to work and play with Shriner! And it certainly seems like Ramish has a good sense of humor about being one of GH’s day players! “I believe that’s ‘the unknown blonde,’ Mr. Baldwin!” Ramish wrote in reply to Shriner’s post, punctuating her quip with a winky-face emoji.
