An Interview with Minae Noji

by at . Comments

General Hospital star Minae Noji was recently asked about her character sex addiction story line on the show. Here was her response:

"I remember thinking it was very much a gift for the fact that they are even addressing it. I didn't know ... I knew it was special to me that it was a journey for me to go on my own. It's a tough topic to broach ... writing this story can be a little tricky.

It's incredible to hear from the viewers reactions to the story. FOR ME, I love playing roles that push me to be brave and open.

When the audience could feel the nakedness and vulnerability of the character and say,"Yes, I get it." It's really a beautiful thing when that happens...

The sex addict story was an interesting journey for me. I grew up around a lot of addiction so hit close to home."
