Jon Lindstrom Has Advice
“Hey beautiful people,” Lindstrom posted on Instagram. “Flu season is coming. With symptoms very similar to COVID. Medical pros (incl my COVID nurse cousin) expect a wave of people believing they have COVID to crowd the ERs this winter. Let’s do our part to not overwhelm them. Get your flu shot early. #FluSeason #GetYourFluShot #StopCovid19 #WearAMask #GH @generalhospitalabc #GeneralHospital.”
Soap Hub understands for individual health reasons not everyone can get a flu shot, so please check with your doctor that it’s right for you.
Lindstrom first came to the attention of soap fans when he played Brady on the syndicated soap Rituals. Next, he popped up as Mark McCormick on Santa Barbara. He got to sink his teeth into a dual role in Port Charles; first, he was cast as disturbed Ryan Chamberlin and then came on to GH as his twin Kevin Collins.
Lindstrom was one of three GH actors, along with Lynn Herring (Lucy) and Kin Shriner (Scotty), to headline Port Charles in 1997, a GH spinoff. That show lasted until 2003. Next, Lindstrom took on a job 3000 miles away in New York on As the World Turns as Craig Montgomery. There, he worked alongside Cady McClain (who played Rosanna). In real-life, Lindstrom and McClain wed on February 14, 2014, Valentine’s Day!
After ATWT wrapped, Lindstrom came back to GH. The writers eventually paired him with Genie Francis (Laura) and had him reprise his role as Ryan, who turned out not to be dead after all. You can see Lindstrom’s post below. General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check local listings for air times.
