Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) is one of the characters who’s been on General Hospital for quite a long time. And while Baldwin has been around since 1977, Shriner said there’s more to come for his alter ego.
In an interview with Soaps In Depth, Shriner reflects on his 42 years on General Hospital, saying that it is quite mind-boggling that Scott is still there in a suit.
“He’s got a son he tries to help, a couple of girls he has his eye on, and a little law practice. That’s who Scotty is today, and this car’s still got some mileage!” he added.
He also recalled how his early years on General Hospital were glorious.
“And it was fun when Scotty became sort of a rogue. He was bearded and tarnished and got into hijinks and shenanigans with Heather — like trying to steal Jason!” he said.
Shriner Looks Back At His GH Career
Shriner felt that he’s done it all in more than 40 years on the daytime soap, including romance. These days, his romantic life involves Ava Jerome (Maura West). Scott is particularly drawn to women like Ava, being a schemer himself.
Shriner is also all praises to West, saying, “She’s one of the greatest soap stars ever.”
“There’s nothing she can’t do, so they give her a lot, and she just cooks. And I’m always thrilled to be in the kitchen with her,” Shriner said.
Kin Shriner is one of General Hospital legacy characters, along with Laura Spencer (Genie Francis), Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring), Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) and Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleston). And Shriner is not yet ready to retire from playing Scotty on GH.
