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 »

Sorry to see him and Mark Lawson go, but neither had much of a storyline.

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.

Dev, the subject of this article. He acts like he’s playing a tree from the Petrified Forrest.

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: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
