Kimberly McCullough Leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL, Again

Kimberly McCullough returned to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake back on a short-term contract back in September. She will soon be leaving the soap again.

"I only have two more weeks left," she told Soaps in Depth at the ABC Television Critics Association party. "Next week and the week after."

What takes Robin off the canvas this time around?

"Robin's leaving because of her love for another character that is not Patrick on the canvas," McCullough revealed to Daytime Confidential. "But it’s not goodbye. It’s just see you later."

Jason Thompson will remain on the show as Dr. Patrick Drake.

McCullough's next assignment for the ABC/DGA Creative Talent Program will be shadowing a director at GREY'S ANATOMY.

  1. And how her short return was wasted in favor of propping Sabrina. Similarly, the short stints of Genie Francis and Jack Wagner were wasted. At least Robin's return had two fine moments (Robin reuniting with Anna/Robert and Emma seeing and running into the arms of her mother.)
    Ron Carvialti and Frank Valentini are highly regarded by the soap press and never called out for the mainly poor writing and decisions (Um, hello, Franco, Silas and Kiki anyone?) GH is rather unwatchable these days whereas DAYS and B&B are really good with smaller, more agile casts, smart dialogue and better payoffs. Viva la DAYS!

    1. You think B&B is better than GH? B&B just recycles the same crappy storylines over and over. Like the Liam and Hope debacle. If bad writing were a criminal offense Mr. Bell would be on death row for his Steffy/Liam/Hope triangle.

    2. Excellent post ! I couldn't agree more.
      The latest bad decision made by Bell is the re-cast of the role made famous by Ron Moss. The new guy has an Irish brogue,doesn't own or know how to shave his face and apparently objects to washing /trimming his hair. Bad, bad, bad judgment all around.

    3. I totally disagree with you Joshua. I have tried to watch DAYS and B&B and find them repetitive and boring. I've been watching GH since 1980 and is the only one I look forward to watching. I guess we have a different view and likeness of entertainment.

  2. Really!?..,To have her on the show was pretty awesome only just to have her leave AGAIN!? Uhm yeaa these short stints what a waste

  3. Kimberly McCullough chose to leave the show and pursue another career. GH has lived without her so it wouldn't make sense to drop everything and have the show be all about her. It was clear from the beginning that her return was short-term and I have enjoyed it while it lasted.

  4. I think that was a condition of her return that she would also be able to pursue other projects. She has aspirations to become a director so, it'll be fine that she free her up to do both so they can still have Robin on GH.

    3. Are you sure you made a typo? Auto-correct has been plaguing me lately changing some words to utterly ridiculous ones that make no sense in the sentence!

  5. I feel that she will be going away one because of Obrecht being back yet again (how didshegetout ofjail this time?) and 2 with Elizabeth overhearing that Patrick is really the baby;s father notCarlos.Turnabout is fair play she will tell both of them since Robin toldthe truth about Jason not being Michael's father. So it couldbe she is on break toclearher headforabit while she does her other love directing.

  6. didn't like her much this time around anyhow. They've had Sabrina be pretty dull so far, but maybe they'll give the actress better material now. (Maybe she discovers Jason is alive and goes off to find him. ha ha ha)

  7. See, I knew this all along. Patrick should have stayed with Sabrina!

    1. So agree!! Have been watching every since the character of Robin was seven years old and have NEVER liked Kimberly's acting. Good-bye and PLEASE stay gone!! I think the character of Sabrina is a much better match for Patrick and hope to see many more scenes of them in the future as a couple.

    2. Wow ! A kindred spirit. I have _never_ like KM's acting either, I though I was a lone on that tip. KM seems to be a real downer and her physical appearance makes her appear much older than the _dreamy doc_. I also noticed the rapport between the young girl that portrays Emma and RS character was non-existent. "Emma" has much more rapport with Sabrina than with her 'mother'.

    3. I agree. I love Sabrina and wish Robin would have stayed gone. It didn't make sense to bring her back, ruin Sabrina's happiness and she turns around and leaves to help her ex-boyfriend???? I love Jason, but come on now. Patrick needs to move on and go back to Sabrina.

    1. So sick of GH writing. The show is almost unwatchable. It has been ruined by bad writing and stupid plots. Will probably stop watching because I'm so fed up with it. It gets sillier every day

  9. I wish they hadnt wasted her time back with hiding at The Cassadines. And does this mean and Patrina reunion. Cause of that girl goes back to him. That's just pathetic.

  10. Just make Heather go away... and Stay gone. Or at least just show her
    in mental hospital.This has went way past stupid.

    1. Amen!! That Heather story line has just about ruined GH. That with all the other really stupid repetitive on and on story lines. ( Britt, her mom, Dante & Lulu baby, Michael.. etc). They need some new stuff and to finalized all the old drama, or I am close to deleting this show from my DVR!! And in closing I love Kimberly she is a great actress and has always been my favorite since she was a lil girl.

  11. I agree - Loved having Robin back and will miss her when she is gone but that's soaps. But please, get rid of Heather!!! This kind of nonsense is why soaps became such a laughing stock in the entertainment industry. On what planet is her story line plausible?? In the real world, the hospital that keeps letting her escape would have so many lawsuits, it would have shut down a long time ago. And what does she live on, how does she have an income, where does she find these thugs that help her? Why couldn't Carly escape the boathouse? It wasn't locked when Luke got there, her hands were tied and she was gagged but she still could have made her way out of there when Heather was gone! This is ridiculous!

  12. So sad and wasteful. KMc, we will always miss you! But at this point, perhaps they should recast. I say this because Sabrina and Uncle Patrick make me want to shower - and not in a good way, in a 'ew' way. Also, the way she says CARRRRRRlos is annoying. And so is CARRRRRRlos. and so is Sabrina. I liked her with Milo.

  13. Thank god, she has done nothing but bring things down with her dour appearance. Hope Robin falls down a deep well !

  14. that's why football is a losing theirfan base and most loyal fans.you have us invested in Sabrina and Patrick storyline, just to bring back his dead wife. Now said dead wife is leaving again.what do you want now ,us to go back to cheering the "Patrina"story line again?
    I think not ABC.

  15. I wrote General Hospital, but it came out football sorry for the typo

  16. I don't knw y they wrote the story the way they did. They should have let Robin walk in AFTER Patrick and Sabrina kissed not b4 and that would have made for a better reunion and a postponed honeymoon. Patrick is torn between his two wives and slowly starts to gravitate towards Robin. Making her the "other" women, only to find out that his new wife is pregnant and that's what make Robin realize that she no longer have a place in Patricks live and THAN she leaves.

  17. called it!!! she's going to save Jason... lol ....ha ha ha hahahahaha!!!

  18. I think they should just re-cast her and re-cast Jason, too. Because if Jason comes back for 3 months and then leaves again, what is the point? That will be awful and so dumb. I know Kimberly has been on since she was a child b/c I watched it then. Yet, she clearly has other ambitions, which is great. Just re-cast the role so they are not writing dumb story lines to accommodate her. Because her leaving again and not even telling Sam is ludicrous!!!! And Steve Burton, or "Jason," seems happy at Young and Restless, so why keep using his picture here. They replaced LuLu and Abby (Y&R) with ease and we viewers are used to this. I am so used to the new actresses and don't want the old ones back.

    We have had to endure years of Anthony Geary on and off the canvas on stupid trips just to accommodate his vacation lifestyle. Yet, "Victor" and "Jack" don't require such accommodations and their characters are much loved. Anthony is great, but wouldn't it be better if "Luke" were there full time as another actor? Yes! He and Tracy could be a power couple like Victor and Nikki. Tracy is AWESOME and she and Luke are great together.

    We are all replaceable to some extent at our place of work. Actors are too. Give those actors that are committed to OUR shows and to US, the viewers, the opportunity to work. Those actors that have other obligations or who are more dedicated to themselves and their other interests, should be given the freedom from the show they clearly want.

    If I had an employee that could only work half the time I truly wanted, I would tell them this was not the job for them. Why can't GH do the same?
