The actress posted a poignant pic of Robin and Stone with the caption: “25 years ago today, I experienced what would become my finest moment as an actor. My character Robin Scorpio lost her first love Stone Cates (Michael Sutton) to AIDS.”
She continued: “The love that poured through us that day was a reflection of the best of us, when we can see through the prejudice, and the fear of a disease and treat the person experiencing deterioration with compassion. Telling stories can be a vehicle for enlightenment and yes, even soap operas can change the world. I believe we did that with the story of Robin and Stone.”
