Morning Man Classic: Kin Shriner!
Before General Hospital’s Luke and Laura became the most celebrated couple in soap opera history, Laura (Genie Francis) had been married to Scotty Baldwin who was played by the adorable Kin Shriner.
Sure Luke (Tony Geary) was more exciting, but Scotty was a sweetheart and the actor who played him was an early crush of mine.
Looking back at some of these photos from the early 80s, I think it’s easy to see why!
Kin, who is now 57, appeared as Scotty off and on from 1977 through 2008 and also played the role on the spinoff soap Port Charles.
His twin brother is Will Shriner, also an actor.
General Hospital is his most famous role but not his only one. He left the show for a while to join the cast of the NBC soap Texas and during other breaks from the show he was a regular on The Bold and the Beautiful, As the World Turns and a short-lived soap called Rituals.
He also played Harrison Bartlett on The Young and the Restless in 2004 and returned to the show earlier this year to fill in for Ted Shackleford as Jeffrey Bardwell.
