Kathleen Gati is celebrating her 7th year on “General Hospital” as Dr. Liesl Obrecht, an amazing feat that’s worth celebrating. What was supposed to be a two-day gig turned into a long-term role, and she’s loving every single day of it.
“I did my job — played the Swiss-German head of the psychiatric hospital where Robin was — and I went home,” she shared during an interview with Soaps In Depth.
“Then a few months later, they asked, ‘You want to come back?’ Then they gave me a daughter, then they gave me a son and then they gave me a hospital to run! It was fantastic,” she added.
“My seven-year anniversary was this summer,” the actress said.
It’s been a wild ride for Gati, and she’s thankful to the showrunners for allowing her to be part of the sudser this long.
“And that means a lot. I’m grateful to everyone at GH and fans for all the love and support. What’s fun is some viewers ask why I’m so evil, and others say, ‘I love it when you’re dark!’ So when I get a script, I’m excited about whatever I get to do.”
