General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) had joined the Daytime Emmy-winning digital series, The Bay for its upcoming Season 3.

Duell, who is also a Daytime Emmy winner, will play the role of “Adam Kenway,” a mysterious young man who comes to Bay City with an agenda and wreaks havoc in the lives of Pete Garrett (Andrews) and Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans).

The Bay’s creator, Gregori Martin revealed Duell had already taped his Season 3 episodes.  “I’m excited for Chad’s fans to see him in a role very different from what he’s played before,” Martin stated.  “He did a stellar job in bringing the character of Adam to life.”

When asked how it is it working on The Bay, Duell described a great experience. “I heard a lot abut the show and had been wanting to be a part of it. I knew they had a great cast and crew, so I was really looking forward to working with them. I had a ton of fun on set and am looking forward to working more on the project in the future.”

Duell also expressed his feelings about his character. “I loved playing Adam Kenway. He is such a different character than what I have played in my past, which made him so much fun to play. He is a very dark and complex individual, and I had a blast playing with this character. He is so opposite of how I am in real life and those are always the most fun and challenging roles to play.”

“The Bay is loaded with talented actors,” stated Duell. “I I had the pleasure of working closely with Kristos Andrews, Karrueche Tran, Mary Beth Evans, and Thomas Calabro. They were all great. Kristos and I are good friends off camera, so it was different yet fun playing characters that hated each other on screen. I worked a lot with Thomas,  He and I had a lot of fun. He’s hilarious and very talented. I can go on and on about everyone.  It was such a good experience and I am very happy to be a part of such a wonderful cast.”

When asked about working with Gregori J. Martin and Wendy Riche, Duell had nothing but praise. “It was an amazing experience working with them! Gregori is a great director who really allowed me to explore this character and try different things. I would love to continue to work with him in the future.  He brought the best out of me,” stated Duell. “Wendy was great! I could tell how passionate she and Gregori are about this project and it trickles down to everyone involved. They both work very well together. Very happy to work with them!”

Season 3 is slated for a spring 2017 debut.  In the meantime, fans can catch season 1 and 2 of the series via Amazon Prime.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
