The General Hospital Fan Club Weekend brought the majority of the cast together at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, California on July 23 for the Main Cast Event. The afternoon, which saw Kirsten Storms (Maxie) being followed around by cameras for her reality show, involved a Q&A and the opportunity for fans to meet the cast afterwards for photos and autographs.
Soaps.com was there as each cast member was called up to the stage one by one. As expected, Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Steve Burton (Jason) received the loudest cheers, with Bruce Weitz (Anthony) coming in at a close second. The fans apparently love them some crazy Anthony Z. John York (Mac), who it was noted is enjoying his 20th year in Port Charles, moderated the Q&A in his spectacularly loud paisley pants by asking each actor one question.
The following are a few highlights from the day, which entertained the running joke of "Are you Sonny's kid and who is your mom?" Julie Marie Berman (Lulu) responded to that question by quipping that she was actually Sonny's next love interest. Maurice pumped his fists in approval.
Steve Burton was asked where his, as well as his character's favorite vacation spots were. While his personal favorite destinations were revealed to be Maui and Nashville, he joked, to the crowd's delight, "Jason's? Does he care? I don't know. Does he remember? I don't know. His hair doesn't change. Does it matter?"
