General Hospital's Jon Lindstrom Delves into How to Play a Villain

Jon Lindstrom

General Hospital star Jon Lindstrom has played his fair share of sinister scenes on soaps, especially as serial killer Dr. Ryan Chamberlain. What makes a good bad guy? A lot of it is acting technique, Lindstrom told Soaps In Depth.

He noted:

I’ve learned that one of my stocks-in-trade is restraint. As you get older and become more experienced, you realize that sometimes the less you do, the more impact it has. 

Lindstrom continued:

When you look at the great TV, movie, and even theater actors, there’s a real pleasure in watching simplicity. I seem to have fallen into a place where I can do that when it’s called for, and I’m really enjoying it.
