Lindstrom joined General Hospital in 1992, but it wasn't as Kevin. Lindstrom started on GH as Ryan Chamberlin, Kevin's troubled twin brother. For a period of a few years, Lindstrom pulled double duty as both Ryan and Kevin.
Kevin's popularity resulted in the character being used to help launch GH's 30-minute spinoff, Port Charles, in 1997. Lindstrom remained with Port Charles for the series' entire six-year run.
Though it had originally been thought that key characters would be brought back into the General Hospital fold after Port Charles' cancellation, that was not the case. In 2004, however, Lindstrom and Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) reprised their roles on GH for Lila Quartermaine's memorial service.
On GH, Lindstrom will be reunited with several of his Port Charles castmates, most notably Herring, who played Lindstrom's on-screen love interest and returned to General Hospital last month, and Kelly Monaco, who played his daughter, Livvie Locke.
Lindstrom returns to the airwaves beginning January 30.
