General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros and Laura Wright Respond to a Disturbing On-Line Threat

C’mon, people, there’s being invested in your soap, and then there’s… this. As General Hospital turned the burner up to scorching on Nina and Carly’s storyline, at least one fan got a little… overheated. In a tweet to Laura Wright on January 17, the viewer said — jokingly, we hope — “Listen… I’m afraid if I saw Cynthia Watros on the street, I would punch her in the face for messing with Carly!”

General Hospital’s Laura Wright and Cynthia Watros Unpack Their On-Screen Animosity — and Preview Inevitably ‘Great Hurdles and Explosions’ for Carly and Nina

You may have a co-worker that you don’t much care for, but on the set of General Hospital, Laura Wright and Cynthia Watros are actually tasked with going off on one another — regularly. “Cynthia and I have been yelling in each other’s faces for two years at work,” marveled Wright during a recent visit to The Locher Room (which you can watch in full below.). So it’s important that they have clear distinctions between real and reel life, like their occasional pickleball games.

General Hospital's Cynthia Watros Weighs In On All Her Soap Roles

Cynthia Watros burst onto the daytime television scene in 1994 as sweet nurse Annie Dutton on "Guiding Light." While she was an old friend of Rick Bauer (Michael O'Leary), it didn't take long to figure out that Annie was anything but sweet. In fact, she had quite the sadistic nature and terrorized Springfield until 1998 when Watros left soaps. She eventually found fame in the primetime world as Libby Smith on the hit series "Lost" from 2005 to 2010.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Opens Up About the Co-Star She Wishes She’d Known Better: ‘It Brings Me to Tears Now’

As the Emmy winner was leaving Guiding Light, a castmate made the loveliest lasting impression. Over her years in daytime, Cynthia Watros has had approximately a zillion co-stars. Many of them, she worked closely with. For instance, Robert Newman (Ashland, The Young and the Restless) and Kim Zimmer, with whom she made up the popular Annie/Josh/Reva triangle on Guiding Light. Or Billy Miller (ex-Drew, General Hospital), with whom she threw sparks while they were playing The Young and the Restless’ Billy and Kelly.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Reveals the Atmosphere at Guiding Light That Made Annie and Reva’s Feud So Unforgettably Combustible

A whole different kind of sparks flew when she shared scenes with Kim Zimmer. Back when Guiding Light cast Cynthia Watros as Annie Dutton in 1994, the future Daytime Emmy winner was just “a young kid who really didn’t know what she was doing,” she said during a recent episode of The Locher Room. (Watch it in full below.) But boy, did she have “it,” that ephemeral quality that separates stars from mere actors. And when the CBS soap resurrected Kim Zimmer’s Reva Shayne to reclaim soulmate Josh Lewis from Annie, Watros really got to shine.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Reveals the ‘Friendly Competition’ She Has With Laura Wright — and It *Isn’t* Over Sonny

The on-screen rivals “have a ball” together off screen. For Cynthia Watros, playing the spoiler is old hat. On Guiding Light, the Emmy winner was sandwiched between supercouple Josh and Reva as Annie. And now on General Hospital, she’s Nina, the “other woman” of sorts who may be an insurmountable obstacle for Sonny and Carly to get over. “I should wear a shirt,” she joked during a recent episode of The Locher Room (which you can watch in full below). “‘If You Need Someone to Get in Between the Couple You Love, Hire Me.’

What Cynthia Watros Has To Say About Nina And Carly's Feud

Cynthia Watros Discusses What To Expect From Nina On General Hospital

"General Hospital" star Nina Reeves is persona non grata throughout much of Port Charles, the fictional town where ABC's only remaining daytime soap opera takes place. After all, she found the town's resident mobster with a heart of gold — and one of the soap's most popular characters — tending bar in a Pennsylvania tavern not knowing who he was, and she didn't bother telling anyone for six months.
