GH Vet Kin Shriner: "There Are Four or Five Girls in That Town Ripe For Some More Scotty Action"
More and more General Hospital vets are continuing to head back to Port Charles. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan confirmed Kin Shriner (Scotty) will return to the fictional burg on the heels of ex-wife Laura's (Genie Francis) arrival. What exactly will the former special prosecutor be up to, and how will PC's bad boy Luke (Anthony Geary) react to his return? Shriner revealed:
TV Guide Magazine: There are so many story possibilities for bad-boy Scotty. So many dames!
Shriner: There are four or five girls in that town that are ripe for some more Scotty action. Lucy has unfinished business with me, and there's Crazy Heather, Tracy Quartermaine, Anna Devane. He was involved with all of them. And then Laura, of course. I don't know what they've got planned for me. It's very hush-hush-sweet-charlotte down there at ABC these days. Back in the old days we didn't have all this texting and googling and tweeting to spoil storylines but, still, at the Luke and Laura wedding, [exec producer] Gloria Monty kept me locked in a trailer so the secret wouldn't get out that Scotty was there to catch the bouquet. So, really, nothing's changed!
TV Guide Magazine: Nothing indeed. Despite all the secrecy, there's one thing certain about Scotty's return — Luke Spencer won't like it one damn bit!
Shriner: Yeah, I don't think he'll be throwing Scotty a party. If my character showed up and was involved with Laura it would really chap Luke's hide. He would want to try and win her back, even if he has moved on with his life. This competition between them goes back 35 years so Ron has so much story to pull from. We thought the '80s at GH were wild, well, this could be even wilder. I start shooting next Tuesday [Jan. 22]. I can't wait to get my grubby hands on that script!
