HomeTVGeneral HospitalBradford Anderson: “You Need Someone to Root For” Regan Cellura June 9, 2009 General Hospital 3 Comments Braford Anderson (Damian Spinelli, General Hospital) sat down with TVGuide Magazine to dish on Spixie, his Emmy nomination and his not-so-classic soap stud looks. Let’s face it, you’re not exactly one of the perfectly chiseled, runway-gorgeous, cookie cutter guys we see all over soaps, so a lot of folks are surprised at your success. I’d be the first to get in that line! Yes, it is a surprise. When my manager told me I had an audition for GH I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. [Laughs] I was like, “Yeah, right. That’ll happen.” But look at us now! So are we selling the soap audience short? The rabid legions of Spinelli fans suggest that viewers want more than your standard pretty boys. Our audience is looking for characters they can get behind. If it happens to be this stunningly beautiful couple, great. If it happens to be this quirky little guy who struggles through life a little bit, that’s great, too. You need someone to root for, and hopefully my character has become that. 3 Responses Regan Cellura June 9, 2009 I liked the quote " you need someone to root for." I couldn’t agree more considering there isn’t much to root for on GH these days. Log in to Reply Jorpa June 10, 2009 I still want to pinch his cheeks. LOL Hopefully I’ll get to in July.

GH is so lucky to have him. I am very glad for his success! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
