Michael Sutton reflects on GENERAL HOSPITAL and his career
"The whole AIDS story is still so relevant. There's still no cure and it affects so many millions more people now than it did back then. It has become a global epidemic. GH chose to do it as a heterosexual story to affect the most people possible. They did a lot of research and educated a lot of people. It was important to get it right and I give the show a lot of credit. They did that story at the highest of levels. And of course it stays relevant because Robin still deals with her HIV every day."
