ABC Soaps In Depth - - News -

GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Sam may have been fall­ing apart on screen due to her ill­ness, but por­trayer Kelly Monaco was look­ing very much the well-put-to­gether lady as she hosted a morn­ing fan gath­er­ing, re­plete with cof­fee and donuts. Those gath­ered were re­lieved to hear that the ac­tress had been as baf­fled as they were by Sam’s bizarre be­hav­ior, which she ad­mit­ted was her “most chal­leng­ing” sto­ry­line ever. How­ever, the ques­tion they couldn’t wait to put to her was how the re­turn of Steve Bur­ton might rock not only Sam’s world but that of nearly ev­ery­one in Port Charles. Ap­pro­pri­ately vague, all Monaco could re­veal was, “It’s gonna be juicy!”

“Billy [Miller] and I have worked re­ally hard… to rein­vent Ja­son and Sam,” said Monaco, whose lead­ing man joined her via FaceTime. “I’m ex­cited to see what [the writ­ers] have in store.”

Monaco loved work­ing with Michael Eas­ton (Finn) on GH spin-off PORT CHARLES when they played Livvie and her vam­pire lover, Caleb. In her en­tire ca­reer, she said, “I’ve never

ex­pe­ri­enced a con­nec­tion that

pro­found.”

“I thought it might be fun to do a morn­ing event when all my fans aren’t [schnock­ered],” laughed Monaco.
