Just a few weeks ago, Jonathan Jackson announced he was leaving GH as Lucky Spencer. He hated the dark side, and I don't blame him. Now comes the news that Kimberly McCullough who began on the show at age 8 and is now definitely all grown up, her character married, a mom, and a doctor is also leaving the show. The word is that she didn't like the way the show treated her character's HIV status in a recent storyline. Actually, the plot device received a lot of negative publicity and although Kim is saying she's leaving to finally pursue her directing dream, scuttlebutt says that disrespect of the storyline prompted her decision.
Many wonder if GH will be cancelled in favor of Katie Couric's new show next year.
