On May 16, Emmy award-winning actors Kim Delaney and Michael E. Knight participated in a wonderful virtual fan reunion, which was produced by Coastal Entertainment. Digital Journal has the scoop.

Both actors star in the hit ABC daytime drama series General Hospital. Delaney portrays Jackie Templeton while Knight plays Martin Gray.

Aside from General Hospital, Delaney is known for her roles in All My Children, NYPD Blue, Philly, CSI: Miami, as well as Army Wives. They shared stories and favorite storylines while working together in the defunct soap opera All My Children, which was created by the late but great Agnes Nixon.

Veteran filmmaker and actor Bill Timoney also made a special cameo in this online fan event, which was an added treat as he interacted with Knight and Delaney.

A portion of the proceeds from this Zoom event benefits the nonprofit organization Contractors for Kids, which provides financial relief to families affected by injury, sickness, or death of a child in the Long Island area.

On the greatest lesson that the acting profession has ever taught them, Delaney responded, “The acting profession has taught me how to listen. That’s helpful and key not only in acting but in life. It made me realize that I need to stop talking and listening more, that’s the first thing that comes to mind.”

“The greatest lesson that the soaps have ever taught me is to have a relationship with people,” Knight said. “One of the great things that we have going for us on soaps is that we get to work with the same people because they are family. They give you the dialogue and they give you the story but you realize eventually that you are falling backward in a relationship that you have with these people. As an actor, when I do other things I look for that.”

“Listening is incredibly important in all facets of acting and life,” Bill Timoney said. “I do a lot of coaching with young actors and I very often say: ‘what do you want?’ and ‘what’s in your way?’ What is your objective and what is your obstacle? Then, I go ‘who is winning?’ and ‘who is losing?’ A really well-written soap opera scene will see the two people in the scene change winning and losing several times within that scene. It’s a really interesting way to approach the work, and it’s a very productive way too.”
