He revealed that he is scheduled to film “next week.” It isn’t uncommon for soap veterans like Kin Shriner to take extended breaks from filming. Other actors like Genie Francis (Laura) nd Finola Hughes (Anna) have taken months off from filming for the show.

Scotty Baldwin hasn’t been a main character on General Hospital in a while. However, with new writers coming in, there’s potential for him to be more active on the show.
