How to bring Michael Park to General Hospital to reignite with Maura West

Michael Park has been occupying a huge amount of my recent screentime. First, he was a baddie but not the big bad in Stranger Things season three. Then he was married to Laura Linney in Tales of the City. And this week, I found him as a nameless Ivanwald brother in the Netflix docu-series The […]
