General Hospital stars Finola Hughes and James Patrick Stuart both know that they’ve got a good thing going with their characters, Anna and Valentin.

Here’s what they have to say.
General Hospital Spoilers: Finola Hughes And James Patrick Stuart Open Up About Valentin And Anna’s Piping Hot Romance
Speaking to the publication, Finola admits that she loves the fact that the writers have finally decided to give Valentin and Anna’s relationship a go. That, and she also likes it that their romance has been so well received by General Hospital fans and viewers, too. When asked how they became a couple, James Patrick explained, “I think there was a tipping point that happened organically. It wasn’t in the script, but when Anna saved Charlotte, there was a moment in the police station where Tristan [Rogers, Robert] was in the background on his phone and I just said to Finola, ‘What if I kiss my hand and touch your boo-boo.’”
Finola also says that at that very moment, the seed was also planted. She said, “And also, there has been this history where we’ve had to confess things to each other and own up to things within the relationship and I think that resonates with people because you become intimate in a really exposed way — and if the sex is good on top of that, you’re home free!
I think that’s what everyone wishes for in a relationship, that you can have that sort of honesty. It was exquisite, I thought, [Script Editor] Elizabeth Korte’s writing before Anna and Valentin ended up in the bedroom, which was, “I’d kill you if my daughter’s life was on the line.” They challenge each other, and I think that’s what keeps it interesting.”

James Patrick also said that he loves how everyone is rooting for this couple to make things work. When asked about his fans, he said, “It’s a mutual admiration society. We are fond of each other and also, we really respect and are thinking of the fans at the same time. So it means a lot that it works for them. Like Finola said at the beginning of the conversation, it’s a delightful surprise — because we would both be doing this even if no one was watching!”
