Eric Braeden talked with TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco about his 30 years as playing the iconic Victor Newman.  From past and present storyline arcs, to his contract dispute, it’s all here. Below are just a few great excerpts!

Braeden on if its feels like he has been working on Y&R as Victor for 30 years: “It feels like a blur. It doesn’t feel like 30 years. I have no sense of it. I’ve been working in the same surroundings forever — the same dressing room, the same two sound stages, the same studio, and largely the same cast. A lot hasn’t changed in these past three decades. It’s the nature of the beast. You see, I never invested myself emotionally in this job so I wouldn’t get hurt. As actors, you have to put up certain defences because people do come and go. So when people in the industry say, “we’re all family here,” it’s all really just bullshit. I never identified with that kind of fantastical thinking. In show business, it’s always best to be on your toes. And realistic.”

Braeden on if Victor really loves his evil son, Adam: “That’s a fascinating question because it’s a hard one to answer. I, Eric Braeden, find it unimaginable for a parent not to love their children. I find the disowning of your child a horrific idea. But I’m sure there are parents out there that would say, “You have to be in my shoes. My daughter or son have committed heinous crimes.” I really don’t know. Honestly, I hope I am never faced with Victor’s circumstances in this regard. I have decided to play Victor’s relationship with Adam with a little bit of a conflict and not so black and white.”

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.

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.

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.”
