Kimberly McCullough Leaving Role of Robin Scorpio on 'General Hospital'

Kiss another General Hospital regular goodbye. Kimberly McCullough is leaving General Hospital in early 2012, leaving behind a role that she originated in 1985 -- when she was seven.

McCullough originated the role of Robin Scorpio at in first grade, took time off from 1996 to 2005, and then returned to Port Charles.


Soap Opera Digest reports that McCullough wishes to leave General Hospital to direct full time, with a show rep sharing that fans should "expect a poignant and must-watch storyline for Robin and Patrick."

With soap operas quickly facing extinction and cast members jumping ship, GH may well be the next soap to be cut from the daytime schedule.

What do you think will happen with Robin's storyline? Will they kill off her character?

I am about ready to stop watching day time TV, taking all my soaps away......GH is the last one on my list. I had stopped for like 2 years but as for all addictions, I had seen GP a few times on a new job an was hooked. But if they take the one too, I'll be done. SO ABC, NBC, NO ONE IN MY HOUSE HOLD WILL NOT WATCH U IN THE DAY TIME IF U TAKE THIS AWAY TOO. I hope there will be others that feel as strongly as I. Good luck GP I hope to see u always.
