Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Photo: ABC

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I’m going to miss everyone they’re getting rid of. I’m seriously losing interest in the show I’ve watched for decades

I agree, dev and Dillion were making a new storyline with their parts, and the crap going on with Sam yes she changed when Billy Miller was with her but it took her no time at all to fall back with Jason and thrown herself into dangerous situations , so saying because she is a mother she is thinking of leaving, she was a mother when she directly placed herself in serious dangers.

Guess the young man with the expressive dark eyes and dark good looks will not have any trouble finding oodles of other work. Best of luck to him.

I’m more torn up about Dev than Dustin. He was starting to come into his own as a character, had great chemistry with the teen scene, and reminded me of a young version of Zander Smith from back in the day. Plus, killing off another teenager a year and a half after Oscar seems like a poor decision. I would have been much happier if it were Brando who blew up.

Well… they tried to send Dev out on a good note, with his attempts to apologize to Cam & Joss (though they wouldn’t know what he was apologizing for) and for being the one who actually spotted the “suspicious” bomb backpack, no doubt having seen things like that before, growing up in Turkey. All a little too little too late though really. They painted the kid into a corner because they didn’t know what else to do with him, and his attempts at self redemption don’t really matter all that much, as he’s now dead and nobody’s going to know… Read more »

wtf, sad, really upset with the show killing off characters, and with the rumors of cast cuts this really sucks, but I know this much, Ashton nor Mark were contract players, so if the show is planning to really start cutting off contract players, its only going to get worse, what a shame, GH don’t start killing off your talent, viewers don’t like that. I know this one doesn’t.

I was really starting to like this guy and the characters of Dev, Josslyn, Trina and Cam hanging together. It’s a shame to see Dev killed off. It’s beginning to seem like if your the second guy in this quad, you’re doomed from the start. First Oscar; now Dev. Next guy beware.

They seemed to have lost interest in developing this character. What a shame. There was a lot of potential.

Best wishes to Ashton!

This one shocked me…I thought there was more to Dev’s story.

The death scene was more about Sonny than Dev. “Don’t die on me”? Sonny did even wait for the paramedics to call Dev dead. He hardly seemed moved – kinda like Dev’s dead, what’s for dinner? The writers never fleshed out the Dev character. A minor who comes all the way from Turkey without any real mention of parents? Was he really attracted to Joss? Or, did he secretly have a thing for Cam? Regardless, they were wise to end it here and eventually bring on a new 4th teen. Just don’t get too close to Joss – she has… Read more »

I thought they were starting to write Dev having a thing for Cam, but with the covid shut down, storylines have probably needed to change, and unfortunately there are more cast cuts to come…

I really liked Ashton as an actor. He did a great job with the material he was given. I will definitely miss him.

Good riddance. Why can’t we just admit it, the kid can’t act. Never changed expression. Even a little creepy the way he looked at people. And they’re not getting rid of enough characters. Peter, Lulu, Dante, Carly, Sonny, come on – let’s clean house.

I am tired if gh getting rid of good actors. They should have kept Dev, Neil, Lulu, Drew & Mike. They should bring Mike as a twin brother to Mike.

Mike did a great job & he will be miss.

And Julian! They bring Dante back to only have Lulu written out. I’m disgusted with whoever is calling the shots. They’re ruining the show.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
