Transcript for 'General Hospital': Inside the Annual Nurses' Ball
year the "General hospital" nurses' ball. Abbie Boudreau made an appearance and went behind the scenes of the biggest party in daytime. Take a look. The nurse's ball, the annual ritual for the characters of the daytime soap "General hospital." My lovely co-hosts "Gma" correspondent Abbie Boudreau. Hi, everyone. This year I get invited to join in on the fun cast as myself. I'm in the red carpet scene covering the ball kind of a big family reunion for the show's cast. The nurse's ball is a chance for us to show off a different side of our characters that maybe the audience doesn't get to see too often. Do I look like a soap star? How do I pull off this look? Let's go. First stop, hair and makeup. Time to get my hair done. Next, wardrobe. You must cover a ball in a gown. At rehearsal we run through the scene with the director playing myself is not so easy. Fan favorite laura Wright plays Carly. Carly is a little scrappy at this nurse's ball with a very big mission to protect her man. She may have to get a little down and dirty and a little physical. It's not even what you say. It's your look because you have to really feel like I'm going to kill you. I will rip your head off and, hi. That kind of thing. Reporter: It's Matt Cohen's first nurses' ball as Dr. Griffin Monroe, the show's newest hunk. I mean, doctor. So what's it like to be a heartthrob? I don't know. You tell me. Oh. Good one. My day on the set was but a glimpse of some very long days for this cast and crew. All: That's a wrap. Abbie, great job. You can see more of the nurses' ball today on "General hospital" right here on ABC. Check your local listings.
