General Hospital's Jane Elliot on Loving Luke, Working With Elvis and More

Jane Elliot

She is irreplaceable and irrepressible and rarely gives interviews, but when Jane Elliot does decide to talk she damn well delivers! On the occasion of General Hospital's 51st anniversary, TV Guide Magazine spoke with the Emmy-winning actress about her legacy as bitch supreme Tracy Quartermaine. Elliot also cut loose on a variety of other topics, from her most famous leading man (Elvis Presley!) to her close, but chemically dangerous, friendship with Days of Our Lives' Deidre Hall. You'll never guess what the two soap queens plan to do when they retire!

TV Guide Magazine: We know you hate compliments and this will probably annoy the crap out of you but we gotta ask: Do you have any idea how beloved you are by the GH fans? They're especially excited about your Emmy pre nom, since you've long been a hold-out when it comes to awards.
Elliot: I don't tweet or do any other social media so I don't know what's being said out there. I certainly appreciate what you're telling me and I'm grateful for it but, whenever anybody tells me something like that, it just slides right off me like scrambled eggs off Teflon. I just don't let my mind go there.

Robin Mattson, Kin Shriner

It's been over 30 years since Kin Shriner and Robin Mattson first teamed for crime and romance on General Hospital and now they've been reunited on the ABC soap in the most unexpected way: It's been revealed that their characters — district attorney Scott Baldwin and nutcase villain Heather Webber — are the parents of serial killer Franco (Roger Howarth)!

Premise: The classic Gloria Monty soap charting the trials of Port Charles' medical center. Even daytime naysayers tuned in to see the celebrated nuptials of supercouple Luke and Laura, who scored covers of both Time and Newsweek during the same month. Over time, the series flirted with sci-fi, sexy aliens, adventurous location shoots and a late '90s mafia madness. It debuted on April Fools' Day 1963 and spun off the gothic guilty pleasure that was `Port Charles' (which was canceled in 2003).
