General Hospital (GH) spoilers has some sad news to pass on about a fan-favorite GH star. Marc Anthony Samuel, who portrays nurse Felix DuBois on the ABC soap, has shared with his social media followers that his father has passed away.
Marc posted a collection of beautiful photos on his Instagram feed of his father along with the following caption: “Glad he knew how much I loved him. Glad I know how much he loved me. Best dad ever.”
Marc’s father was a stage actor from Chicago. Currently, there is no word on a cause of death.
Marc’s followers have been sending their condolences on Instagram since Marc made the sad announcement. For example, one follower commented: “So sorry, Marc. Our folks mean the world to us. My thoughts are with you.” And someone else replied: “I’m so, so sorry! Sending you love and hugs.”
Marc has also received an outpouring of support from his GH co-stars as well. Parry Shen (Brad Cooper) replied by saying: “I’m so sorry, Marc. I loved that you guys share the same twinkle in your eyes when you smile.” And Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht) replied: “Sending hugs and love to you and your family.”
If you’re fortunate enough to follow Marc on social media, then you know that his dad has showed up in his feed before. In fact, just last Father’s Day, Marc posted some great photos of his dad along with the following caption: “So grateful for my number 1 dude. My father. #happyfathersday.”
Of course, this loss comes at a time when Marc’s character Felix has turned back up on the General Hospital scene. He recently appeared on the show in scenes with Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) and Elizabeth Baldwin (Rebecca Herbst), which absolutely delighted fans.
We certainly hope to see more of Felix going forward – we’d love to see him get involved in a major storyline and/or get a love interest of his own. Fans love Felix, and so do we, so let’s hope we see more of him going forward.
We send our deepest condolences to Marc and his family during this time. Stay tuned to the ABC soap and remember to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital recaps, news, and spoilers.
