She and Benard also recalled the iconic “Stone and Robin” AIDS storyline. She said it was groundbreaking and was handled “in such a loving way.” It didn’t focus on how Stone got it.
“The story was, this is what you are dealing with now. This is who you are as a person now. You are a great person. I am falling in love with you. We are going through this together,” the actress explained.
“I think Robin and Sonny’s love for Stone [Michael Sutton], and, of course, what they shared the most was someone that they loved the most, dying, and dying way too soon,” McCullough shared.
She also said that she still cries whenever she watches the Stone dying scene. She said it was beautiful and Benard agreed.
