This week on General Hospital, Monica (Leslie Charleson) receives intriguing news.
Charleson recently spoke with Soap Hub about the passing of her long-time co-star Stuart Damon (Alan), recalling that she was his “daytime wife,” and reflected on working with him on Monica’s breast cancer, one of the most memorable storylines General Hospital has ever told:
“We showed that breast cancer affects the husband, too. That was important. We both learned a hell of a lot during that time. I became involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We got letters that said, ‘Thank you. I am the husband of a cancer patient and I want to thank you. I didn’t know this.’ We tried to give viewers the most honest depiction of what it was like to be a breast cancer survivor or victim. I thank everyone who was involved with that story. That’s when Stuart and I really sat down and decided we’d be as honest as we possibly could because this was real life.”

Damon, who originated the role of Alan Quartermaine in 1977, passed away on June 29. General Hospital will be planning a special tribute episode for the late actor. Check out an interview with executive producer Frank Valentini and Steve Burton (Jason) with KABC-TV’s On the Red Carpet below.
