General Hospital's Jon Lindstrom Marks Special Anniversary!

Jon Lindstrom's General Hospital soap opera career first began on June 20, 1992, when he was introduced as a new character, Ryan Chamberlain. One year later on December 3, 1993, he began playing the role of the character's twin brother, Kevin Collins. He now marks his 26th year playing the role of Kevin Collins.

Dr. Kevin Collins arrived in Port Charles on General Hospital in the early part of 1994. He came to town to help rehabilitate his identical twin brother, serial killer Ryan Chamberlain, who was in a mental hospital. Kevin felt his brother was as much a victim as the women he killed and thought he could help his brother get well with his own therapeutic methods. He had a hard time being accepted by the citizens of Port Charles because he had looked identical to a man everyone feared and hated. Eventually, everyone came around, including Felicia Jones (Kristina Wagner), who was terrorized by Ryan for almost two years. However, her fianc√©, Mac Scorpio (John J. York), was instantly suspicious and hostile to Kevin. Kevin visited his brother, Ryan, several times and thought he was making progress. However, he was unaware Ryan was using him to escape the mental hospital.

Lindstrom played the role on and off and even brought the character to life on GH's spin-off called Port Charles. The character has been paired romantically with several women including; Eve Lambert (ex-Julie Pinson), Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) and Laura Collins (Genie Francis) all of whom he married. Today, Lindstrom marks his 26th year of playing the role of Kevin - watch his first scene back in 1993 below!
