General Hospital's Kin Shriner Celebrates A Special Milestone! Learn more here--->>
Kin Shriner is celebrating 45 years in the role of Scotty Baldwin on General Hospital.
Shriner was employed by Fuller Brush as a door-to-door salesman before becoming an actor. He was originally cast as Scott Baldwin on General Hospital in 1977, the role he is best known for playing. He made his debut on August 2, 1977. In the fall of 1980, he left General Hospital and immediately began playing Jeb Hampton on the NBC daytime soap opera Texas. He left that role in 1981 and soon returned to General Hospital, where he remained until 1983, returning again from 1987-1993. He once again returned to playing Scott Baldwin, but this time on General Hospital's spin-off Port Charles. Port Charles was set in the same fictional city as General Hospital - Port Charles, New York - and featured many of the same characters. In 2000, Shriner returned to General Hospital and quit appearing on Port Charles the next year. He left General Hospital again in 2004 and returned in 2007 and left the series again in 2008. In 2013, he returned to General Hospital, where he has remained since.
When he made his debut, Scottyobtained a job at the hospital, where he met the young Laura Webber. They fell in love and, after many obstacles (including the manipulations of Scotty's on-again/off-again lover and Laura's nemesis Bobbie Spencer), they finally married but their happiness was short-lived.
Shriner holds the distinction of being one of only a few actors who have appeared on the same scripted television program, in the same role, for six consecutive decades.
Please help us wish him a happy anniversary!
