Mike Corbin-Celebrating Ten Years
Ron Hale has been on General Hospital for ten years!
1995-2005. Even though Ron Hale has never been a contract player, he has always played a very important role on the General Hospital canvas. Arriving on scene as the long lost father of Sonny Corinthos, Mike's first few years were spent trying to reconcile with his son. As the years evolved, Mike has managed to be involved in many stories. The audience has seen Mike working with Luke, being an easy target for Sonny's enemies, always being close to Sonny's girlfriends and wives (so he can have access to his son), and seeing the introduction of Courtney Matthew, his daughter. Mike's known to like a party, to find a good scam, to lose a lot of money at the track, and to offer good advice at Kelly's Diner.
