Up-Close & Personal
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!
