DC #647: Jason Thompson Reacts to GH's Latest HIV Storyline Twist on The Morning Jolt With Larry Flick
On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast, The Morning Jolt’s Larry Flick graciously shares his interview with General Hospital’s Jason Thompson. During the must-hear episode Flick asks Thompson to weigh in on GH’s controversial decision to have Lisa (Brianna Brown) use Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) HIV positive blood as a weapon. Robin’s status has been an important part of GH’s legacy and he shares the concern he and McCullough felt, when they first learned what was going to happen.
Thompson and Flick then discuss the project that keeps him busy, when he’s not on the GH set, Unknown Compelling Force. Uncovering the truth behind the true story of Russian hikers–whose mysterious deaths were listed as “An Unknown Compelling Force” and classified by the Russian government–has become a passion project for Thompson. Hear him recount some of the stories told by the hiker’s families and why he and director Donnie Eichar want to help bring them closure. This is an interview you won’t want to miss!
