Shriner Was Instrumental In Making GH Number One
General Hospital was in danger of being canceled when Scott and Laura’s helped to propel GH to the top of the daytime ratings. Luke’s sister Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) was obsessed with Scott and getting rid of Laura helped energize GH. Of course, Scott and Luke’s decades-long battler over Laura didn’t hurt things either. Luke’s decision to rape Laura caused a great deal of drama in those days as well. This love triangle was greatly responsible for GH remaining on television at that time.
General Hospital’s Shriner left GH a few times over the years but Scott has always been a part of the show in some form. Shriner returned to GH in 1981 just in time to catch the bouquet at Luke and Laura’s wedding. Shriner also starred in the GH spinoff Port Charles before later returning to GH. Scott has attempted to reunite with both Laura and Bobbie but a relationship with neither has worked out. However, Scott has now found himself in a relationship with Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) who he saved from a sexual assault from Franco Baldwin’s (ex- Roger Howarth) doctor. Liesl is the mother of Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) was fans will recall. Gati has recently celebrated her ninth anniversary with GH as well.
Congratulations Kin on your 45th year as Scott. We hope to see you for several more.
