General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that we may have to say goodbye to one ABC soap hunk. The latest GH buzz suggests that a contract actor is on his way out. If this departure moves forward, it’ll be the male performer’s decision to leave and his final scenes should air in the new year.
It’s important to note that last-minute deals are quite common at General Hospital. Sometimes actors play hardball during negotiations, but ultimately reach an agreement with the show in the end. A renewal could still happen before the clock winds down.
Nevertheless, there’s a chance that GH will really lose a valuable cast member. Who could it be? Three options immediately come to mind. First, there’s Anthony Montgomery (Andre). Now that Andre’s turned to the dark side, can he come back from it? He’s not a total baddie, but his decisions could still cost him his career and possibly even his life!
Without anything to do in Port Charles, Andre’s days at GH may be numbered. General Hospital undoubtedly plans ahead if a departing cast member gives them the heads-up. Once Andre reveals the truth about Jason (Billy Miller) and Patient Six (Steve Burton), Montgomery’s stint could conclude.
Michael Easton (Finn) is another option to consider. The actor has been tempted to jump ship in the past, so maybe the time is finally right. It’d be a shame to miss out on the fun Hayden (Rebecca Budig) story they’ve set up, but there might be a way around that.
There have been some hints about Budig’s return recently, so GH could tie that into Easton’s potential exit if they wanted to. They could go ahead and have Hayden give birth to her baby, which might lead to a sweet reunion. If Easton chooses to leave, the least they can do is give “Fayden” fans a happy ending.
However, there’s another male cast member who might walk away. There were whispers about a Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) departure a few months ago, but no concrete reports surfaced. Could Zamprogna choose to leave after all? That could leave GH with quite a writing dilemma.
Dante wouldn’t just walk away from Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Rocco (O’Neill Monahan) indefinitely, so the options would be limited. We’d probably be looking at a lengthy undercover mission, a recast or a shocking death. General Hospital spoilers reveal that 2017 will end with a serious bombshell, so that could have consequences for several characters.
Let’s hope GH can keep these talented soap stars around, but they’re still our top departure candidates. We’ll give you updates as other news comes in. Stick with the ABC soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers, updates and news.
