Robin and Stone in 2010. (ABC)

Revisiting the past.

Longtime viewers will get a treat on September 28 and 29 when Michael Sutton reprises the role of Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) first love Stone Cates. Since Stone died in 1995 from AIDS, his return comes through a vision Robin has after she flees the cabin and falls down a well.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with the actors who portray one of General Hospital‘s most memorable couples about Stone’s return and what it was like to work together again.

Soaps.com: First of all, welcome back to General Hospital Michael, even if it is for a short time.

Michael:
I appreciate it.

Soaps.com: What was it like for both of you working together again after all this time?

Michael: It was pretty special. We had a really good time reconnecting and kind of going back to that place that we built fifteen years ago and just that trust that Kimberly and I share. I think we did some heavy stuff back then and emotionally we’re just still connected and it was great just to be able to go right back to that point.

Kimberly: It was really cool to be able to revisit it in a…I guess to have Michael there in person, because Robin talks about Stone a lot, so I think it’s going to be really interesting for the people who maybe didn’t watch back then to see the relationship of Robin and Stone and make sense of all of it.

Soaps.com: Michael, how did you feel coming back to the GH set?

Michael: I wasn’t sure when I decided to do this and I really was surprised that it was nostalgic, it was comfortable. It was a lot more comfortable than I thought it was going to be. There were a lot of familiar faces, which was nice, and I ended up kind of almost thinking no time passed in those fifteen years. It was pretty remarkable.

Soaps.com: Kimberly what was your reaction to learning you would be working with Michael again?

Kimberly:
Well, I thought there was a possibility he could be a little rusty. You know, he hasn’t acted in a long time, but he was perfect. And it was more like, ‘Oh, wow. Ooh, okay. I’m gonna step up my game…’
