General Hospital Star Finola Hughes Celebrates Huge Milestone
You can’t think of General Hospital without thinking of Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), right? That’s because the beautiful brunette has long been one of the biggest stars that have managed to entertain daytime television fans for more than three decades now. That’s right – Finola is currently celebrating her 34th year on the show. Talk about a great achievement and milestone!
According to reports, it’s been 34 years since Finola first made her debut as Anna. Throughout the years, she has been nominated for seven Daytime Emmy Awards for her work as Anna Devane. She also won the award back in 1991.
Back in 2017, Finola opened up about her work on General Hospital to Soap Opera Digest. She said that while some emotional scenes are hard to get right, she loves her job and she loves going to work everyday.
When asked if she was happy being back at General Hospital after a short hiatus, Finola told the publication, “Oh, God, yes. Of course! I’m glad they asked me, I’m glad to have an opportunity to investigate such interesting parts of the character and get to play with amazing people. It’s been hard losing certain people that I used to work with. That’s been really difficult, I can’t lie.

However, it’s been fantastic to be able to walk into Matt Cohen’s dressing room and work with somebody who says things like, “I love our scenes together” — which I do, too. I am so glad for the opportunity to work with James and Michelle, and Kimberly when she comes back to visit, and Dom and little Brooklyn [Rae Silzer, Emma] and Scarlett [Fernandez, Charlotte] and Vinessa [Antoine, Jordan], who was turned into a great friend.”
