The soap opera has been the launchpad for many actors since the 1960s — including Demi Moore, John Stamos, Vanessa Marcil and Richard Dean Anderson — but Nicole Kidman was never on General Hospital. American audiences were first introduced to her in the 1980s with the Australian series Five Mile Creek and the movie Dead Calm. Kidman will next be starring in The Paperboy, a thriller set in the 1960s that casts her with Zac Efron, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey.
