DC's Top 10 Male Entertainers of 2012
No. 2: Jason Thompson, General Hospital
Jason Thompson has long been a talented member of General Hospital’s cast, but the “death” of Dr. Patrick Drake’s great love Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) allowed the actor to really shine in 2012. Thompson surgically removed our hearts right from our chests, sans anesthesia, as he explored the depths of Patrick's grief over Robin.
Who can forget his shell-shocked countenance at Robin's funeral? As Patrick began popping pills to deal with the pain of his loss, Thompson was able to provide a more reserved, and somehow much more believable, version of the standard soap opera addiction storyline. Who knew death would become him so well?
