Kin told Soap Opera Digest, “I went through law school on GENERAL HOSPITAL in two episodes! I remember sitting at Denny’s getting ready to go into the studio after having breakfast and a whole bunch of lawyers came up to me and said, ‘We watch GENERAL HOSPITAL, but you got to go through law school in two episodes and we’re working like dogs to try to pass the bar and it ain’t easy!’ So they were a little hostile that I had become a lawyer in two little episodes.”
