ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Executive Producer Frank Valentini Says It’s Great To Have The GH Family Back

Valentini said, “You know, it was surprising; people would tear up when they saw somebody. Silly, small things sometimes mean the most. Like, I saw Eden McCoy [Josslyn Jacks] and she had grown almost four or five inches! I have seen some of these young people grow up before my eyes, but not seeing them for four months, it’s just a big difference and you realize that time does fly and that while we have one another in our lives, we have to cherish each other and enjoy each other and celebrate each other, and the silver lining of all this is that this was an opportunity for us to all be reminded of how important we are to one another.”

The exec producer continue,d “Just like everyone else in the building, I love my job and I love what I do and I love that I get to be creative. Even the days when it’s very challenging, it’s still incredibly rewarding. I think everyone feels that, together, we are more than the sum of our parts, when we all pull in the same direction and work together, and creatively, we feed off one another and we’re inspired by one another and you add the level of family and connection and love and history with each other and it’s a pretty strong combination.”

When asked if there is a special message he would like to share with all of the dedicated and supportive ‘General Hospital’ fans out there, Valentini offered, “I would just like to thank the fans for all of their support and for their excitement about the new episodes and for sticking with us and coming back. I think it’s also a great time for them to bang the drums and let everybody know that we’re back and share with family and friends the good things that are going on. Let’s bring some new people into the GENERAL HOSPITAL audience family!”
