    FINOLA HUGHES: SHAKESPEARE, WITCHIEPOO, AND THE QUEEN!

    For many, Finola Hughes will forever live in our hearts as John Travolta’s one-night lover — and thorn in his side — in Stayin’ Alive. A professional dancer, the British-born Finola had earlier starred in the London production of the musical Cats. Since that time, she’s appeared in dozens of films, nearly as many television series, and won a Daytime Emmy for her role as Anna Devane — an iconic character (and half of the super couple of Anna & Duke) — on ABC-TV’s General Hospital. A proud wife and mother of three, Finola has recently become a member of The Directors Guild of America (she’s already directed both film and television). In this exclusive interview with HollywoodHI, Finola reveals that when not working or spending time with her family, she hangs out with fellow Daytime Emmy Award winners Ian Buchanan (Finola’s former General Hospital co-star and The Bold and the Beautiful), Susan Flannery (The Bold and the Beautiful), and the Queen of England!

    What is the last gift that you bought for yourself?

    A Dutch oven, to bake stupid sourdough bread for the lock down. Needless to say, my daughter took it over — and is brilliant at it. 

    Who would you love to star in a movie with right now?

    I would work with Jason Bateman for free. In fact, I’d pay his salary. 

    What’s the best advice your mother ever gave you?

    My mom told me the Shakespeare quote “To thine own self be true”. It’s a good one — Hamlet. 

    What riveting television do you watch? 

    Everything Ozark! And also, Space Force, Never Have I Ever, Dead to Me, When They See Us, Pose, Fauda, Marcella, Unorthodox — this is such a good time for TV.

    Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met? 

    The Queen. 

    Are you a great cook — what’s your specialty? 

    I make a great butter chicken. That’s the only time I get any love!

    But, do your children think you’re a great cook?

    My children do not think I am a great cook! They roll their eyes at most of my food. 

    Who makes you laugh?

    Ian makes me laugh.

    What was your favorite tv show when you were a little kid?

    I loved H.R. Pufnstuf when I was a kid. I liked Witchiepoo; she was cool. I think that’s why I like villains in movies, they have fun! 

    Did your mother teach you any of her favorite recipes?

    My grandmother used to make a genius apple pie and she taught me. And, Susan Flannery likes my apple pie!
