GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Parry Shen (Brad) is a bit ob­sessed with the In­ter­net Movie Data­base, an on-line source which is packed with in­for­ma­tion about movies, TV shows and video games, as well as the ac­tors, pro­duc­tion mem­bers and other play­ers in­volved in cre­at­ing them. “I am on it all the time,” he con­fesses. “Any time I watch a movie, I’m re­mem­ber­ing names so I can look up the ac­tors and what else they’ve done.” And when Shen him­self lands a role out­side of Port Charles, the per­former does his home­work on IMDb be­fore clock­ing in. “Any­one who works with me for the first time should know that I will stalk you!” he warns with a laugh. “I will have done the re­search, seen what you’ve done re­cently and know what your first job was. It’s just so in­ter­est­ing to me, the dif­fer­ent ca­reer paths that ev­ery­body takes to get to the same place.”

Be warned, ac­tors: Shen wants to know ev­ery­thing about you!
