Quirky, out-of-this world, eccentric or downright nerdy are some of the adjectives one might use when describing the character of Damian Spinelli of the ABC soap opera, General Hospital.
Bradford Anderson debuted on the show in 2006, as Spinelli, and his unorthodox nicknames for the show’s characters as well as his weird yet lovable demeanor won over the show’s fans so much so that The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli was born.
Written into the show, Spinelli, with the help of another character, attorney Diane Miller, played by Hennesy, or “the brusque lady of justice,” as Spinelli has nicknamed her, The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli chronicles Spinelli’s outrageous tales as a private investigator in the mob-infested, never a dull moment town of Port Charles.
Whether Spinelli is interacting with ditzy on again - off again girlfriend Maxie Jones, aka “Maximista,” the irresistible vixen Carly Jack, aka “The Valkyrie,” her hubby Jasper “Jax” Jacks, aka “The White Knight,” friend/mob hit man Jason Morgan, aka “Stone Cold,“ his girlfriend Sam McCall, aka “The Goddess” or “Fair Samatha,” or “Stone Cold’s” mobster with a heart of gold boss Sonny Corinthos, aka “Mr. Sir,” each tale is filled with amusing language and over the top scenarios fans of GH can certainly picture Spinelli getting into but with a Sam Spade-like flair.
Along the way, Hennesy, as Diane Miller, interrupts Spinelli’s dictation of his amazing capers with “What the heck?” comments and the like, which only add to the hilarity of the events posed in the book. Hennesy does a phenomenal job, all the while staying in character, of painting each Spinelli case as its own mini-novel, complete with a witty beginning, middle and end.
So, if you’re a fan of General Hospital and Damian Spinelli’s crazy antics, and even if you haven't seen an episode of GH or heard of Damian Spinelli, The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli will transport you into his zany world of nom de plumes and outlandish situations and keep you entertained the whole way through.
