'Kimberly McCullough has decided to pursue her dream of directing full-time, so she has decided to leave GENERAL HOSPITAL as storyline dictates,' says a show spokesperson."
McCullough has played the role of Robin Scorpio on General Hospital intermittently since she was 7 years old. At of the end of November, she will have appeared in over 750 episodes of the show and has been a regular on the show since 2006.
