‘General Hospital’ Cynthia Watros Reveals Childhood Trauma
General Hospital star Cynthia Watros gets some trolling and hate. And that could carry over from people who see the show and forget she’s an actress. Nina really isn’t the actual Cynthia. Nevertheless, she copes with hate because in her past she went through the trauma of bullying. And it seems rather awful.
General Hospital – Cynthia Watros suffered trauma from bullying
In 2019, Cynthia took over the role of Nina from Michelle Stafford. And clearly, she acts the part rather well, considering the number of trolls who send hate her way. In the GH show right now, people see that Nina Reeves feels total devastation. It comes after she learned that Jasper Jax knew months back about her daughter’s identity. Well, drama in Port Charles simply keeps fans engrossed in the show. So, fans will see how it all plays out over the next few weeks.
Plus, Inquisitr noted that Carly tried hard to stop people “from realizing that the half-heart necklace Avery found ties to Nina’s, but the cat seems to be out of the bag now.” No wonder some fans become so engrossed in the ABC show, that they sometimes forget real personalities live behind the screen. And one fan pointed that out when Cynthia Watros tweeted about her childhood trauma. They wrote “Some [General Hospital] fans can’t separate from real life from make believe. ”
Cynthia’s fans react to her tweet
On January 27, Cynthia took to her Twitter and wrote about bullying. The actress talked about how other kids “teased” her through most of her “childhood.” And she even mentioned that one time, loads of them at the bus stop watched her get “beaten up.” So, she said defiantly, “Your negative comments aren’t anything I haven’t seen before.” Well, it seems rather sad that juvenile bullying follows her into adult life from General Hospital viewers.
Lots of fans stood up for Cynthia Watros and sent her encouragement. They also talked about other actresses who experience online bullying, Here what some of her fans said to the General Hospital star:
- “This really breaks my heart. I really hate the soap fandom bc of this and social media altogether. It’s hard being bullied at school growing up, and now we have stupid SM [do it continues]. They act even [tougher] behind their d*mn devices. smh love to you.”
- “So many ppl tweeted bad things about Nelle, it actually made Chloe delete her account. That saddened me. These ladies are extremely talented actors! Their characters do not represent them in real life. Idk what was said to upset Cynthia, but it needs to stop!”
- Hey, most of us like you. The rest are just stuck in a Michelle Stafford rut… they can’t accept she’s gone and her character is recast. Move on and accept it people, because that’s what shows do.”
I was one of those kids who would get teased, most of my childhood. I remember a whole school bus of my classmates getting off at my bus stop just to see me get beaten up by someone who didn’t like me. Your negative comments aren’t anything I haven’t seen before.
