General Hospital star Katelyn MacMullen spoke with Soap Hub and reflected about life, things she enjoys doing, and what last year’s quarantine (and hopefully a future one isn’t on the horizon) taught her about herself.
Katelyn MacMullen Talks About Life
What did you learn about yourself last year, during those few months at home?
I’ve learned so much! It’s been a very important time in my life, honestly. Quarantine…illuminated what’s important to me, what I’ve taken for granted, what’s working in my life, and what isn’t. As I’m sure many people can relate, it’s been a very spiritual and educational time!
Do you have a favorite restaurant or hotspot in L.A.?
I’m really looking forward to being able to sit down in the coffee shop that’s down the street from my apartment! They have live music and great atmosphere for studying or for getting together with friends!
What big star would you love to star with in a movie now?
Sam Rockwell or Tessa Thompson! Sam Rockwell is so original and I love watching him. Tessa Thompson is so talented and actually came out of the same school as me, so it’d be really cool to work with her!
What’s the last gift that you bought for yourself?
A pair of earrings.
What is the best advice your dad has given you?
My dad has always stressed the importance of a great work ethic and the power of positive thinking!
Favorite way to spend the weekend?
Anything outdoors! Hiking, going to the beach, etc. I always love game nights with family and friends too!
What TV show would fans be surprised you never miss?
Good Trouble on Freeform. When I found out Finola [Hughes; Anna] directed an episode of Good Trouble, I freaked out! I love that show.
What other riveting television do you watch?
I…watched all of Ozark and Unorthodox. Those were great!
