It’s going to be a rough month for General Hospital’s Anna Devane. As Port Charles’s police commissioner, she’s got to stop a mob war. Her daughter will soon be leaving town and her boyfriend went behind her back to bring down his mob rival.
At the ABC TCA party, Finola Hughes shared her thoughts on the departure of Kimberly Mcullough, the futility of being a police officer in Port Charles and her surprisingly domestic wish for Anna.
Daytime Confidential: What was it like filming the scenes where Anna learned Robin was alive?
Finola Hughes: It’s amazing to work with her. I love working with her. She is my heart. I just love being in the same room with her.
DC: Since you have worked together for so long, do you feel like Kimberly actually is related to you?
FH: Definitely. I’ve known her for 28 years.
DC: How is Anna going to support Robin when she inevitably figures out that Sabrina really is pregnant with Patrick’s child?
FH: Sabrina’s not going to be in the picture. I guess she’s going to be with Carlos for a while.
DC: What did Anna and Robert do to Faison?
FH: What do you think?
DC: I think they did something to put him out of commission, but didn’t actually kill him, because they are just too good to kill anyone unless it’s self-defense.
FH: I don’t know. It’s going to be very hard not to have him around. But I believe that Anna believes that she did shoot him. They talk about it, she and Robert, and they say don’t tell anyone, so who knows?
DC: Is Anna actually going to be able to stop the mob war?
FH: I want us to be able to be that strong. We could come down on the mob. We should be able to. But here’s the way I look at it, the problem is they’re so good to watch. There has to be times that they slip through your hands, so they can continue to play. If you get rid of one set of villains then you’re going to have to bring in another set, so they always have conflict. But I worry about the mob war.
