General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Julian Jerome (William deVry) could use a new love interest and Kristian Alfonso, who has quit Days of Our Lives, could be perfect in the role. Julian may be married to Nelle Benson Jerome (Chloe Lanier), but that’s purely about blackmail. It’s clear that Julian needs someone he can genuinely fall for and build a real future with – at least when this Nelle nightmare’s over.
Julian tried to move on from Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) when he got together with Kim Nero (Tamara Braun), but that relationship ended in heartbreak. Kim was torn apart by grief after Oscar Nero Quartermaine’s (Garren Stitt) death and ultimately slept with Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth), who had Drew Cain’s (Billy Miller) memories at the time.
Of course, it’s not like Julian and Kim were all that sizzling anyway. That always felt like a romance that was going nowhere fast. It seemed like GH might pair up Julian and Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton) for a while, but that plan may have been axed. Julian also hooked up with Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud), but that was just about having some fun and setting up a plot point.
The real problem appears to be the fact that Julian can’t get over Alexis. If General Hospital isn’t going to reunite Alexis and Julian, maybe it’s time for a brand-new love interest that Julian can truly fall in love with.
Now that Kristian Alfonso has left Days of Our Lives, should GH give her a call? Would Alfonso make a good leading lady to play opposite William deVry?
Alfonso admitted to Entertainment Tonight that she’s already been getting some interest on new projects. Although Alfonso isn’t sure she’ll remain in this business, she’s keeping her options open. General Hospital could certainly create some buzz if they snatched Alfonso up to play a new character.
Alfonso seems like she could play the kind of woman that’d catch Julian’s attention. On Days, Hope is strong and refined – almost Alexis-ish in a way. Alfonso could bring a powerful onscreen presence and some charisma to the table. She might deliver the right kind of vibe for a love story with Julian.
Could you see Kristian Alfonso portraying Julian’s new love interest? Do you think Alfonso would make a solid addition to GH? As other news pops up, we’ll deliver updates.
