General Hospital Spoilers – Monica Quartermaine Was Into Sean Donaly
In a recent interview with Soap Hub Charleson recalled how Monica fell hard for the Irish rogue Sean Donley.
The actors met on the GH set but both had previously worked in New York. Charleson recalled, “I hadn’t known John before he came to the show. We had some mutual friends. I just adored him. I got to know him and his family.”
What did she think of the storyline in which straight-laced Monica fell for the super spy? Charleson said, “We gradually got together. Edward (Quartermaine, David Lewis) and Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon) planned to fake Alan’s death and then frame Sean and Monica for his murder. Jimmy Lee (Steve Bond) ratted them out. I remember Edward hired Tiffany (Sharon Wyatt) to win Sean away from Monica.”
Edward Quartermaine Was Crafty
Edward’s sneaky ploy worked as Sean and Tiffany fell head over heels in love. Today’s Friday Cliffhanger episode was devoted to the late actor and his loveable character. Charleson said of the episode, “One of the nice things about doing the memorial for John was having his daughter (Caitlin Reilly) play Sean’s daughter, Annie, on the show. I was very impressed with that. She was very good, too!”
