Their romance didn't go further than a one-night stand, but the connection between General Hospital's Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) is way stronger than just a roll in the sheets. Thiebaud says that her alter ego will never forget Jason, and for good reason.
"He was there with her through that terrible time when she found out she had Huntington's. I think with anyone in life, when you're going through something so heavy and life-threatening, that whoever's there by your side, it means so much to you to have them," the actress explains to Soap Opera Digest. "She hasn't really had someone be so genuine and so loving and protective and supportive of her. Even though it was a short-lived thing, the impact of that meant so much to her, and that is what has caused this grief and kind of not being able to move on."
Thiebaud says that fear also plays a part in Britt feeling insecure about letting go of the past.
"It's like, you have this terminal illness and how do you open up your life to someone? How do you fall in love with someone knowing what's waiting for you down the road?" she says. "They're going to see this whole other side of her that she can't control. It's very fear-based. But I do think people aren't taking into account how important that was to her and how meaningful it was."
That said, as Thiebaud jokes, "I definitely don't think she's, like, lighting candles and having a meditative moment of remembrance of the one time she had sex with Jason! I don't think that's happening! I wouldn't say Britt is pathetic by any means. I just think she fell in love and it was a very whirlwind, meaningful, genuine experience and she just feels like it's never going to happen again."
