With the Academy Award nominations out, one former General Hospital star now counts herself among the nominees — a rare position indeed.
Jaime Ray Newman played Alexis’s sister, Kristina Cassadine until her character’s untimely demise due to Luis Alcazar’s bomb
Guy Nattiv, Newman’s husband, produced, wrote, and directed the short film, Skin, which tells the story of a poor man, Bryon “Pitbull” Widner (Jamie Bell), who was brought up by skinheads.
He turns away from them in an effort to transform his life with the help an African-American activist and the woman he loves.
Newman serves as one of the film’s producers. The couple recorded themselves watching the 2019 Oscar nominations being announced on Tracee Ellis Ross (Blackish) and Kumail Nanjian (The Big Sick) on Good Morning America.
You can see below the couple’s joyful response upon learning that their film is nominated for Best Live Action Short Film. The couple will find out if they get to take home gold statues later next month.
The 91st Annual Academy Awards will air live on Sunday, February 24 at 8 p.m ET/5 p.m. PT.
