General Hospital's Finola Hughes Turns Film Director With The Bet
Look who's unleashed her inner Scorsese! Emmy-winning General Hospital star Finola Hughes (Anna) is making her feature-film directing debut with The Bet, a multi-generational tale about the sweet, sad, landmine-filled quest for romance (TheBetMovie.com). The movie will have its premiere April 4 at a starry benefit screening — hosted by Kenny Loggins and The Young and the Restless ' Michele Stafford (Phyllis) — at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, a city that played a crucial role in the making of film. The Bet, featuring an entire cast and crew of first-timers, is produced by the new Community Film Studio Santa Barbara (CFSSB), the world's first and only non-profit, all-volunteer, community movie studio. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the London-born Hughes about this thrilling — and incredibly ballsy — venture.
