General Hospital News: Kin Shriner Shares How He Keeps His Fellow Co-Stars On Their Toes
“If it’s a two-person scene and you’re sitting at Kelly’s, let’s roll and see if we can get it in one try. That way, you can throw the actors’ curveballs. It’s fun to keep it loose and just do it,” he explained.
He praised Roger Howarth, who portrays Franco Baldwin and Maura West as Ava Jerome, for being able to handle how he works. The soap vet admitted that if other actors were on their position, they won’t know what to say and would complain that he didn’t give them the cue. That’s why he loves Howarth and West.
“I love working with those two! I don’t think they ever know what I’m going to say, so I keep them on their toes — and they keep me on mine,” he said.
