Dominic Zamprogna Reveals He’s Ready to Come Home to General Hospital

Photo: JPI

GH’s Dante Falconeri has been off the canvas in Port Charles since he last returned very troubled.  It was then he asked Lulu (Emme Rylan) for a divorce and was headed out of town to get help for a horrific case of PTSD which began when he was in Turkey on a mission.

The actor who had portrayed Dante for all he is worth and then some is multi-Daytime Emmy nominee, Dominic Zamprogna.  Now, in a interview with ABC Soaps In Depth, he reveals he is ready to return to GH on-contract!

Zamprogna shared: “Frank (Valentini, EP  General Hospital) knows I am ready to come home.  I’d be totally open to a contract. There’s so much potential with the character and the story right now. With everything they’ve done since Dante’s been gone, there are so many options, and they’d all be fun to play.”

In a very candid moment, Dominic shared it was last September that he felt the urge to come back to the ABC daytime drama series, and even shared an emotional call with his on-screen father, Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) about coming home.

Currently in story, Lulu has been seeing Dustin played by Mark Lawson, which could set up a triangle, if Zamprogna were to return to GH.

So, would you love to see Dominic back on GH full-time? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I never cared for Dante character.
why?
because of (hard to tolerate) Lulu.
Lulu is a stomach turner.
If he were to return to GH, I’d have need to FF him
when he’s with Lulu..
eeezzz Lulu is beyond annoying..

I have not missed the Dante character, didn’t notice he’s gone.

If he returns, I’m good with that
but-
if he’s involved with Lulu and brings her upfront, then
Don’t return- stay away..

I remember a step in for Lulu..
I don’t know her name, but I liked her, she was very good;
I want her back.
She was a great relief from the Emmy Lulu..
I was sorry to see her leave when Emme returned..
I read- not many fans like Lulu, this Lulu..

When Lulu and Maxie get together its like watching
two really annoying valley girls..
I waited for Lulu to giggle a loud ”awesome sauce!!”
EEEESSSSHHHH!

Yes, bring Dom back! And while they’re at it, bring Julie Marie Bergman back as Lulu!
I’ve never cared for Emme as Lulu. (Nothing against Emme, I just don’t like her Lulu and the friendship with Maxie isn’t the same either!)

Agreed that DZ is a really good actor. Dante should be brought back if they have a long term story arc for him. Dante was just gliding along he last few years on the show as the writers couldn’t seem to figure out what to do with him. Mostly police-related scenes, which we have Chase (and occasionally Mac) for. As they’ve dropped the potential Josslyn crush storyline with Dustin, the only connection for him, other than Lulu is Brook Lynn. He could easily be written out in one episode (a direction the show should consider for a few characters once… Read more »

Thank all that’s unholy. Bring Dante home whenever GH starts taping again. If they could bring the real Lulu back it would be even better, of course. And maybe once Dante comes back, they can finally reveal that Charlotte came from the same batch of embryos that Rocco did, and Val the Bastard was never her father. They already dropped enough hints that this was the case, but never followed up on it, as it wouldn’t have really served any purpose with Dante AWOL. I suspect Dante’s return to Port Charles will come with the sad passing of his grandfather,… Read more »

Thing is; Dante has an Extreme case of Complex PTSD (C-PTSD. It is curable.. it is manageable with ‘meds’ and life long treatment/like AA.. Dante could never be a police detective again, never.. He should not even be involved in the lifestyle of the Corinthos/Sonny.. In other words; unless he is portrayed as an actual C-PTSD/ the real deal high-level C-PSTD, Dante will be a joke. He will be living with a shadow within him and without constant care, he will go static. bwaa remember when ”Dylan” had PTSD? that was beyond phoney ((much like Sharon’s 90% family pampering cancer… Read more »

What about if/when Dante returns, Lulu stays with Dustin and Dante and Maxie hook up after the bastard Peter is finally outed for all he’s done?
Just a thought…I really don’t want Dante with Lulu anymore. She seems more suited to Dustin.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
