BREAKING NEWS: Tyler Christopher NOT Returning To General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Heartbreaking news for General Hospital fans: multiple sources have confirmed that Daytime Emmy winner Tyler Christopher will not, in fact, be returning to the ABC daytime drama series in his beloved role as Nikolas Cassadine!

Soap Opera Digest broke the news who related that contract talks stalled and then fell apart between the actor and the show, citing, “Though both parties had hoped to strike a new contract deal and for Christopher to report back to work in September, negotiations fell apart last month.”

Christopher had played the dark prince of the Cassadine clan for over 20 years and debuted in the role back in 1996.  His win this year in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series was so touching given his long tenure in daytime.

Tyler left the show back in June citing “personal reasons”, and the role was temporarily played by Nick Stabile until GH “killed-off” Nikolas in hope’s of Christopher returning to the series in the near future.

More on this story as developments warrant  …

Very sad news, but I said this 1 month ago. Tyler will not come back to GH. Rehire Nick Stabile he was terrific and had chemistry with Ava Jerome played by Maura West.

I agree with Claudio. Really enjoyed watching Nick Stabile’s portrayal of Nicholas Cassadine. I think he did an awesome job and yes he had great chemistry with Maura West!

KansasGuest

Raising my hand as another person who liked Stabile’s portrayal of Nicholas. Sounds like something else is going on with TC other than contract talks because they wouldn’t have gotten rid of Stabile unless they fully expected that TC would return. Maybe he’s just not interested in being one corner of yet another romantic triangle, & the other story possibilities being proposed are not enough to make him return. My main sadness if for Genie Francis & Nicholas Bechtel. Laura is finally back on the canvas & Lulu is the only family she has to interact with in Port Charles.… Read more »

I agree with you Jim. Although I will miss the wonderful chemistry he had with the terrific actor who plays Spencer. They have so many actors on the canvas now its hard to keep track of who’s coming and going. I get headaches trying to keep up with it all. As the say goes , I guess we’ll have to tune in tomorrow to see what happens.

Yeah…… I’m sure this was Tyler…… after all, FV tried to lowball pretty much every other vet that has been in contract discussion to make more money available for the likes of Michelle Stafford and Roger Howarth!

I’m done with this farce of a franchise. And everything else on ABC too. (Luckily that isn’t really much in my book to begin with.)

Lisa
Guest
Lisa

Really bummed out !
Thoughts though – I hate to say it but they could age Spencer (I know we hate SORAS).
But he could come back with Laura as the heir apparent to the Cassadine fortune – it could open up a lot of story lines.
Or leave things as is with Nik currently dead and see what happens with Valentin (I’m assuming that story isn’t finished).

Michael S

I guess they can bring that other guy back then. Or recast Michael Muhney in the role. He has the acting chops to deliver a strong performance as Nicholas.

Although I’m sad, it has been apparent for some time that Tyler’s heart was not with the show. I would love to see a recast, Cassadines add a lot of mystery and flair to the show. Let’s bring back the glamour of Cassadine Island!

yeah… nevertheless this is a stunner… it’s like killing off the DiMera of DAYS…

I’m so sad but it doesn’t surprise me. GH isn’t great at keeping veterans. They lure them back, then want them to take huge pay cuts. I’ll miss Tyler and I’ll miss Nikolas. This is a special character and needs a named/dynamic actor. Nick was adequate but he’s no Nikolas.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

i’m quite surprised at the turn of events … with posts as well

how quickly it is to turn…

GH had the best opportunity to REEL a lot of emotion with Tyler and Maura West

w/ Spencer

this is a huge blow to the canvas… whats the deal

Disagree. GH has one of the largest recurring casts in daytime – with Finola Hughes, Bradford Anderson, Kimberly McCullough, Leslie Charleson, Jacklyn Zeman, Wally Kurth & the actors who play Maxie’s parents, Lucy Coe, Lucas, Brad, lawyer Diane, etc. forever popping in at a moment’s notice. What they won’t do – and would be foolish to do – is put all these people on contract when there is no huge story for them to participate in. That would be throwing money down a hole. I think a lot of people are reading the situation incorrectly. TC is currently filming an… Read more »

This is disappointing news. I really like Tyler Christopher as Nikolas and was hoping he would return, and we’d get an exciting storyline for him. However, since it appears he won’t be back, I’m really hoping GH rehires Nick Stabile and puts him on contract, because Nikolas is an important character to the canvas, and Nick did a stellar job filling the void left by Tyler’s exit.

Tamara

Sorry to see Tyler leave. Wish him the best. They need to recast with Nick Stabile. Huge GH Character must be recast.

Timmm

I prefer Tyler but I must say he looked bored and or tired at the end of his run? Nick Stabile did a wonderful job. I dont know why he didnt stay on anyway until Tyler would have come back? Nickolas Cassidine is so important to the canvas. He touches Liz, Laura, Lulu, Alexis, ect and needs to be on the show. Nick Stabile should be hired permanently and let the good times roll! [Keep him away from that evil bitch Ava!] Nick and Nina? Valentin would LOVE that!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I agree with you up to… your first sentence … LOL

all of 2015 he was mesmerizing… and richly deserved that gold accolade

recognition of his work… and commitment ?

it all went downhill… when they went overboard and in to overkill with Hayden

I certainly think there were times in his performance that he just was not.. in to his material…. scripts

it pains me that his commitment of 20 plus years with the show… went nowhere

I wish him the best

PS: I love your wish list for the new Y&R headwriter

Timmm
Guest

Yeah Patrick, I didnt think of that, Tyler walked away after 20 years with nothing. Sad!

I’m certain he’s amassed a fortune and secured his families welfare

this should comes back to haunt GH

Timmm

He is rich and will go on and do other things. I dont see this as a huge blow to GH. The ONLY thing that would hurt not having Tyler there is if Emily were alive and back on the show. THEN I would feel cheated!

Maybe he can play Adam Newman on Y&R! And GH could rehire Stabile in the role!

Patrick

I certainly think he has the stuff to be Adam

and / or perhaps as DAYS recast of Peter Blake

Timmm

Tyler is too soft to play the role of Adam. Former GHer Jason Thompson is at Y&R ruining the role of Billy right now. Enough is enough!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I do not think he’s too soft… forever and day… fans wanted the knight and shining armor of a good guy…

he displayed so much energy in all of 2015… reason for his best actor win

which further exemplifies TC acting

I would never balk at hiring him for Adam or Peter Blake.

He can go over to Y&R and play Adam Newman and Nick Stabile or even Stephen Martines who played the character after he left the first time.

Leave it to GH to not sign a talent right after he took home an Emmy for his role. Hey GH – stop bringing on all the cheap newcomers and keep the talent and legacies of your show….you know, the ones who bring you awards. Shame on GH for turning on him.

KansasGuest
Guest
KansasGuest

How do you know they did? Sometimes actors leave for reasons other than money or screen time. Jonathan Jackson & Steve Burton left because they wanted LESS screen time, & more time with their families. There’s a burnout factor that fans refuse to recognize. Playing the same role & storylines for a decade is BORING for some actors. TC may have just reached his limit & decided that if GH could not be flexible & give him more down time, he’d walk. He’s filming a movie now. So, it’s not like he’s sitting around twiddling his thumbs.

I am sorry to hear Tyler will not be returning. I really like the actor. I did however, think Nick Stabile did a great job filling in and agree that he has great chemistry with Maura West. I hope the powers that be decide to continue the character of Nik with Stabile playing the role. I wish all the best to Tyler Christopher and will miss seeing his sexy physique on the screen. I am happy for him winning the Emmy. Those scenes surrounding Spencer’s accident were incredible.

LOTS of viewers – and posters on other boards – are receiving this news as the final straw. I know I am. Why bother watching any more…. this isn’t GH anymore. Best of luck to Tyler, I hope he’s off to bigger and better pastures. But the show has now rid itself of almost everyone who made it GH. Poor Genie Francis, she finally is allowed to come back and then she has no one to act with. One thing though, FV has ruined the show enough that most long time fans probably don’t even care that much as to… Read more »

Although there would have been a lot of baggage, I’m sad that we never got to really see an Elizabeth / Nikolas pairing with Elizabeth and Tyler. It seemed to be one of the most obvious pairings to explore – whether it lasted or not – and yet none of the writers were ever willing to go there for whatever reason (and on a show that gave us a Luke/Laura and a Sonny/Emily – it isn’t like they aren’t willing to go there with other outrageous pairings with LOTS of baggage).

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

We did have Elizabeth and Nic. Or, are you not counting their affair???

Michael
Guest
Michael

LOL, no, I’m not counting the affair. It was a sordid mess but I always thought with time, they could revist that relationship in a more mature way. And the characters did circle one another the last few years without ever going there – although it was clear that both of them wanted to at one point or another during those years, just never quite at the same time. And it always felt like the writers wanted to tease that possibility, but never wanted to commit to it.

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

They were incredibly hot together…played by Rebecca and Tyler…really explosive, sexual onscreen chemistry! But I hated the pairing because of their betrayal of Lucky. Moving forward I agree…there was always the hint they’d get back together…the timing never right…almost as if they found other people to resist their “forbidden” love. I’m not sure how I’d feel about them finally getting together. Maybe they will eventually come to fruition if Nicolas is recast. Would be interesting…

Things seemed to have really changed at GH. One day he’s back, next day he’s gone. That seems to be the common thread in a lot of GH news recently. Bringing in old worn out story lines, that make no sense, adding new story lines that go nowhere? Same with the actors. Killing off pivotal characters.

I would have thought winning Best Actor meant contract negotiations often go your way. Oh well, best wishes to Tyler in all that he does. I hope we see him in some of his other projects soon. If GH brings back Nikolas, I hope it isn’t too late to offer the job to Nick Stabile (if he is available and if he wants it.)

Horrible! He was with GH for 20 years for them to not respect their vets like that is horrible. He just won the Emmy. They are fools. The history he had with the show, the chemistry he had with Rebecca Herbst. Devastating loss to the show. Too bad they don’t realize it and instead put their energy and focus on the characters and actors they brought on and want instead of the ones that the fans have spent decades invested in. Sad.

I like Tyler and was looking forward to his return. I read earlier that he wasn’t coming back and was disappointed. Not sure what they’ll do now…Laura’s out of town, Spencer’s away at private school and Nicolas is believed dead. In an effort to save money maybe ABC will let it stand. Could be the end of the Cassadine era. Hope not. Would like to find out what happened to lil Jake on the island, if Lulu is a Cassadine “mommy”, what did Helena hint at regarding Laura, more with Valentin.

To me he’s just another strange face on a show I once loved and never missed. Now’s there’s no point to tuning in just to see a bunch of strangers in meaningless plot lines that don’t ever go anywhere. Might as well just set up a camera at a few points around town and take turns broadcasting the footage. Interspersed with mob and serial killings of course.

Although we will never know what happened behind close doors- most likely he overestimated his value after his Emmy win–the guy they hired slid into the role that he was hardly missed. Some roles cannot be recast or if they are there is an uproar with fans-obviously this was not the case with this role– the suits knew that and I suspect they wanted him take less money– I hope he gets another gig– but the truth is they ruin the character a while ago for me, so I’m not missing the character at all

This is why a lot of GH fans have tuned out and why they won’t be back and ratings will remain low. There has been no regard for, no priority for GH actors and characters. Vet after Vet gone, not on and new actor after new actor after new actor. Easton and Howarth have been out in front and on literally every day for about three weeks. I hear people asking for Nick Stabile back. Well, I’m not surprised, they are current viewers and current viewers are watching a show that barely resembles GH, so they are less likely to… Read more »

I couldn’t agree with you more, AJQ. I’ve been a defender of Frank V. on this site, a lot more than most. But this one really soured me on him. He dropped the ball big time. They have all the budget in the world to saturate the show with all these useless new characters, but apparently none for a 20 year beloved fan favorite. It makes me sick, and honestly makes me not want to watch the show anymore after 21 years.

Im sorry but i say a BIG NO to anotjer recast. Unless they try really hard to find a better Nicholas, i will always miss Tyler. We were robbed of a magical connection with Maura West and Rebbeca Budig. Thank god for Micheal Easton, at least he is back and even better as Finn than Sîlas.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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

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.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
