General Hospital's Super-Couple: Robin and Stone

General Hospital's Super-Couple: Kimberly McCullough ('Robin') and Michael Sutton ("Stone") talk to ABC7's Tracy Butler. ABOUT THE RETURN OF "STONE"

Back in the 90's, "Robin" and "Stone" were a groundbreaking couple who both contracted HIV (one of the first times TV explored AIDS with heterosexual couples.) "Stone" eventually died of the disease and "Robin" continues to live a full life today with the virus (a doctor, wife and mother.) A tragedy where "Robin's" life is in peril causes her to hallucinate and see "Stone" (even though, yes, he really is dead) on Sept. 28 and Sept. 29. This marks the first time the original actor has returned to the role since "Stone" died in 1995.

"General Hospital" airs Monday to Friday 3:00 p.m., ET/2:00 p.m., PT

ABOUT KIMBERLY McCULLOUGH

Kimberly McCullough rejoined the cast of "General Hospital" in October 2005, when the character of Robin Scorpio - now a doctor- returned to Port Charles because she was urgently needed at home. Upon her arrival, she found herself crossing paths with friends and family from her past, including her father, Robert, and now has an on again-off again relationship with one of her colleagues, Dr. Patrick Drake.

Singer, dancer, actress and now director Kimberly McCullough has been in the spotlight since the age of seven months. Born in Bellflower, California, she made her first appearance in a diaper commercial opposite Juliet Mills. As a dancer, she performed on television in "Fame," "Solid Gold" and "The People's Choice Awards."

Stone later died from AIDS.

McCullough has won two Emmy Awards for her performance. In 1997 she left the show to pursue other interests, including a stint as a student at New York University. In addition, she has portrayed the role of Dr. Scorpio on the highly-successful primetime spin-off, "General Hospital: Night Shift" on SOAPnet.
