BEST LOVE STORY|
KATHERINE DELAFIELD & ROBERT SCORPIO, GENERAL HOSPITAL
Immediate and unmistakable, the chemistry between Tristan Rogers and Edie Lehmann transcends the pattern of the love story of their characters, Robert Scorpio and Katherine Delafield on GENERAL HOSPITAL. Like many love stories seen on daytime it features key familiar elements: initial dislike; arguments spice with a strong sexual undercurrent; cold feet when it came to commitment; declarations of love followed by complications. But the rapport between the two players makes this love story a cut above the rest, especially when we remember the roster of women improbably and unsuccessfully paired with Rogers since Emma Samms vacated her rose as Holly. Classical pianist and neophyte actress, Edie Lehmann conveys both enormous charm and sophistication while playing a character who is more than willing to laugh at herself. It was easy for the audience to understand why Scorpio was falling in love with her -- they were doing it, too.
