I was invited by Disney on an all-expense paid trip to cover the #HanSoloEvent and the “General Hospital” 55th Anniversary. All opinions are my own.
I absolutely love when I have the chance to go on a set visit. It is so much fun to see behind the scenes and all that goes into TV and movie magic.
Last week I had the chance to visit the set for “General Hospital” because they are celebrating their 55th Anniversary!
As you can see it is a long walkway with sets on each side. We were told that they bring in and build the sets as needed and then take them down again.
At the end is the hospital set which stays in place.
While we were on set Nancy Lee Grahn (who plays “Alexis Davis” on ABC’s “General Hospital”) came over and chatted with us a little. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of that but it was fun to get a quick chat in.
It was fun to have the chance to take photos around on the sets.
Here I am getting ready to take a nap, why did you think it was something different? 😉
After our fun time on set, we got to watch part of the Nurses Ball episode and it was a lot of fun to get a sneak peek!
“General Hospital”‘s annual Nurses Ball, this year sponsored by Olay, returns on WEDNESDAY, MAY 16, and airs through MONDAY MAY 21. Founded in 1994 by Port Charles resident Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring), the Nurses Ball is one of fictional Port Charles’ most glamorous charity events, dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness and research. This year, celebrity guest appearances include “The Chew”‘s Carla Hall and “The Bachelor”‘s Nick Viall. In her debut performance, Hall takes on an infamous role decades in the making; while Viall joins Aurora media maven Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford) on the red carpet, as they welcome viewers into what promises to be a memorable night. From Sam McCall’s (Kelly Monaco) stunning arrival to Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) unwavering support and Jason Morgan’s (Steve Burton) tireless search for answers, as well as never-before-seen musical performances and a surprise proposal, the Nurses Ball promises to be this year’s can’t-miss event.
Then we had the chance to sit down with Executive Producer Frank Valentini and Joshua Swickard who plays “Detective Harrison Chase” on ABC’s “General Hospital”. They told us about the Nurses Ball episodes that are coming up and how it is very important to raise awareness and support for HIV and Aids. They said it is a more time consuming to create these episodes but they feel it is worth it to support such a great cause. And the fans love the Nurses Ball. The sneak peek we watched had Josh in it and all I can say is that fans won’t be disappointed!
Make sure you tune in tomorrow Wednesday, May 16th for the beginning of the Nurses Ball episodes!
General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC (check your local listings) or stream it on the ABC App.
