Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio) has always been interested in filmmaking and directing. So she's extremely excited about being accepted into the American Film Institute's Directing Workshop for Women this year.

However, the minute McCullough tweeted this, fans started panicking and spreading the rumor that the actress, who started on General Hospital as a child in 1985, was leaving the show. She did leave in 1997, initially to attend New York University.

McCullough, however, responded that she's not going anywhere and plans on doing both the show and the workshop.

This is a great opportunity for her. Congratulations, Kimberly!

When first read her being accepted in the workshop, I like all her fans was wondering about how GH was going handle it. Then somebody started the rumor. I always figured Kimberly was going stayed & do both, since GH is known for working around their cast ouside projects. She most likely pre-tape the scenes she will miss filmed in May during the 3 wks. From what I have on AFI’s site That during the 3 wks. it is 8-10 hrs. days. And at the rate of storyline is going with Scrubs and Lisa it won’t change it much. Sounds she really be doing both when starting working on production part of the workshop where film their story. Which is in June & July. She is going to busy until she starts the Workshop on 5-10. This something she really excited about and she has earn it. This is very eclusive for her to be pick out of so many. I am sure all of her fans and castmates wish good luck with this.

What an accomplishment – congratulations to KM! Glad to hear the rumors are false. I love Robin. She can be nosy and has her faults but the show wouldn’t be the same without her!

I hope she is not leaving! As I have stated several times in the past, Robin and Patrick are the only characters who keep the “General Hospital” aspect in the whole mob infested show.

I am a big fan of Kim’s. Met her at one of the G.H.
Luncheons. She was only 7. Nice to see her grow to
an adult and a fine actress. Love Patrick and Robin
together. Would be sad if she left G.H
Lots of Luck with new career too.
