This has been an unusual year for kids across the nation as they abruptly stopped school in March, only to learn at home and even graduate in a whole new way. General Hospital star Kirsten Storms and Days of our Lives star Brandon Barash still had their proud parent moment, though, as little Harper reached an amazing virtual milestone.
Kirsten Storms And Harper
“Kindergarten graduation (via Zoom) was so cute,” Storms posted to Instagram next to a picture of Harper dressed for commencement and holding a ‘Last Day of School’ sign. “I cried….of course. Can’t believe how much she has grown this last year! How adorable is the tiny cap & gown?”
Indeed, children have been graduating via Zoom and other platforms throughout May and June, and some high school students have even had drive-thru graduations.
And while kindergarten did not go exactly as planned for Harper, her parents have illustrated she’s been doing her best at home living her best quarantine life. Dad Brandon even gave her a haircut during this time — at his daughter’s request.
Young Harper spent her first few years on the GH set playing Maxie and Spinelli’s daughter, Georgie. She turned 6 years old on January 7 of this year. Soap Hub wishes Harper a very happy kindergarten graduation and hopes that first grade can be spent with her friends at school.
General Hospital History
GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running sudser is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running sudser, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.
The daytime drama outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households! From Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura’s (Genie Francis) gripping romance and wedding, to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH knows how to please their viewers.
Bringing the Drama
More than five decades of gripping drama has kept the daytime sudser on the air as other soap operas were axed. It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). GH airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for air times.
