Finola Hughes is one busy lady. As top cop Anna Devane on General Hospital, she's kicking tail and taking names. Away from Port Charles, the actress has been immersed in her directorial debut for The Bet.
I asked Hughes about her passion project, when I caught up with her at the Paley Center event celebrating GH's 50th anniversary. We also talked about her on-screen reunions with Anders Hove (Faison) and Ian Buchanan (Duke) and the directorial advice on-screen daughter Kimberly McCullough (Robin) gave her.
