John Stamos (60), who portrayed "Blackie Parrish" on General Hospital from 1982 to 1984, recalled one particular day when he was struggling to get into the emotional depth of a scene.

"I heard a pop like this and then I was like, ‘Get that old lady out of my eye line!'," John Stamos recalled. The "old lady" he was referring to turned out to be none other than Elizabeth Taylor!
