Actress Cynthia Watros may have been a bit nervous when she tapped in as GENERAL HOSPITAL‘s new Nina in early 2019… but mostly, she was just buzzing with excitement. “I feel like a 20-year-old back in soaps,” grinned the actress, who won the 1998 Outstanding Lead Actress Emmy for taking GUIDING LIGHT’s Annie over the edge. “I remember my first days! I was with Kim Zimmer (Reva) in the rehearsal room. She’d been on the show for a long time, and I was new and I was yelling my lines. She was like, ‘Excuse me, can someone tell this actress not to act so early in the morning!’”
When Watros talked to Soaps In Depth a few days before taping her first scenes as Nina, she knew she’d have to keep herself in check at GH, for fear of regressing to that green, soap opera novice. “I feel like I’m going to be that again,” she chuckled at the time, “so I’ve got to tone it down!”
