Kimberly McCullough leaving 'General Hospital'
Soap Opera Digest reports that Kimberly McCullough is stepping away from her role as Robin Scorpio, which she originated in 1985 at just 7 years old. After taking a break from 1996 to 2005 to pursue other projects, McCullough returned as a series regular.
A show rep confirmed that McCullough is leaving the show to direct full-time in early 2012, telling viewers to "expect a poignant and must-watch storyline for Robin and Patrick."
Fellow "General Hospital" regular Jonathan Jackson is also departing Port Charles after playing Lucky Spencer for nearly a decade. His last episode will reportedly air at some point in December.
