GH's Brandon Barash Speaks Out On The Killer Twists That Will Change Johnny Zacchara Forever!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital fans this week learned the shocking truth that it was Johnny Zacchara who shot out Anthony’s tires which caused the deaths of Cole and Hope, leaving a devastated Starr Manning seeking revenge in Port Charles.  But if that wasn’t enough, Johnny then kills his evil grandfather, Anthony!  And believe you me, many people would have citizens of Port Chuck would have loved to do that, too!

But with the killer twists came some fantastic material to play for Brandon Barash (Johnny) and more is on the way.  However, it meant the end of Bruce Weitz’s run as Anthony of the living! We hear Weitz is not done quite yet, as viewers will soon see how he appears in upcoming episodes.

Barash opened up to Soap Opera Digest in the latest issue (on newsstands now) to discuss the plot machinations with him at the epicenter!  “It was something of a shock.  But as an actor, I was pleased.  It means a lot in terms of where my journey goes as Johnny.  It’s one of those things that fundamentally changes a human being, and Johnny will never be the  same as a result.”

However, Brandon was less than thrilled that Johnny was responsible for murdering Anthony.   I was very upset when I found that out.  I think I have been lucky to have spent the amount of time that I have had with Bruce Weitz.  It’s been almost like five years.  So I was bummed out when I first found out he was leaving.  But it’s one of those things like the shooting of the tires that is a fundamental event that happens that changes who he is.   It’s going to be a fun journey for me to go as an actor.  So it’s very bittersweet.   I hope I do the story justice!”

So what do you think of the reveal that Johnny was the culprit who shot out Anthony’s tires that in turn killed Cole and Hope?  Were you suprised?  And, what did you think of having Johnny kill his granddad?  Let us know your thoughts!

I hate that they killed Anthony Zacarra off. I hate it. They should of sent him away somewhere, but not kill him off. He was the most dangerous when he first begun the role, BUT they then made him a little crazy and psychotic. He played it with humor, and for ALL that is was worth. The man was candy on screen. BAD DECISION. There was no one like his character, very unique. I hope it becomes a BAD dream and Anthony stays. I would of loved to see him in more scenes with Luke, getting his hands dirty.

You wrote to me, Damn barbara t. you really are a Sonny basher. the man is the star of the show. love it or not. And Maurice didn’t write the script. Stop bashing him please. I’m bashing a character not the man. I loved mb when he was Nico on all my children. If you think I don’t like mb go to the interview michael did with him and you will see I don’t hate mb.

Hi Barbara t: I’ve been away dealing with madness. Yes, there are other star’s on Gh other than Bernard, BUT with all the air he gets, obviously it’s telling that he is the star of the show as Susan Lucci was AMC. U do bash Sonny allot, and he didn’t write the script. I’m just being honest. YET your are entitled to bash whomever U want….. but as a reminder, I’m just saying, Bernard didn’t write the script..!

I loved Bruce’s Anthony Z..he was off his rocker at times and I loved how he called Maxie “Cookie”..I am sorry his time on the show will be over, once Johnny comes to terms with himself..when he found out that Claudia was his mother not sister, which I said years ago and got “booed”..lol (*Who’s laughing now?) that is when Johnny lost it..great acting…

I love Grandpa Anthony to, He was crazy but that’s what I like about him he was fun to watch. Mary lou, I had a feeling that Claudia was Johnnys Mother to, I wish they could bring her back now that Sarah brown has been let go from days and reverse what they did to Anthony z. Ron what were you thinking I can mention a few other characters that should be out the door Bruce Weitz was one funny guy that I will miss.

Didn’t crae much for Anthony….Was not into his character…Will Kate be set free now that we know johnny really shot out Anthony’s tires…Johnny killed Anthony, Cole & Hope…………………….Will he be brought to justice? And Johnny put Anthony’s body in the boat house…To make it look like Tracy had done him in……………………………Poor Kate is innocent…When will she find out it wasn’t her who shot out Anthony’s tires……………..I hope they don’t drag this on too long…..

Johnny, despite being a “son” of a mobster, was a good kid. Now, thanks to the recent storyline, Johnny is headed down a dark path, and I am sorry. I don’t want Johnny made over into the image of Sonny. I liked Johnny because he was different. GH doesn’t need anymore amoral, brooding, depressing, violent characters. I hope Johnny can redeem himself and stay out of prison. Brandon is always a pleasure to watch. Crazy Anthony was a colorful character; Bruce Weitz will be missed.

Disagree, it is far more interesting for the actor, more realistic and more interesting in term of storytelling and for viewers interest although it is not ‘nice’ lovey dovey development..

Johnny was not a nice lovey dovey type. Even though is it more interesting for an actor playing someone dark and complex, which could be interesting in terms of storytelling, WHAT made Johnny so interesting is….. is as David said, he was a good kid, despite being the son of a mobster, and a BAD one at that. Johnny tried to do walk on the right side of the road, but would ocassionally be caught on the left side on the cliff. As a viewer, you never knew when Johnny would change, IF he would change. That kept it interestingl.… Read more »

Grandpa anthony had a way with words, I will miss him to. I don’t want Johnny turning into Sonny either I like him. What a hypocrite Sonny is Star just lost cole and hope she takes Sonny at gun point a gun he could have grabbed from her at any time and is thrown in jail, Now yesterday there is Sonny pointing a gun at Todd but that’s ok and what did Michael cave Claudia in the head and kill her with? Yet star is in jail. I was starting to feel bad for Sonny because of the Kate/Connie problem… Read more »

The main characters of GH–Sonny, Jason, Luke–can kill anybody and get away with it, which makes me sick, especially when I think about Luke killing Jake. People go to jail for vehicular homicide, except in soaps.

I could really care less about who killed Cole and Hope at this point. I hope they dont write johnny off for OLTL characters who shouldnt have been on the show in the first place. and that the thing about Cartini they let good actors go.

I agree with you Susan and by the way it is Carlivati not Cartini. OLTL was the best show on ABC but obviously they didn’t care about viewers. Now GH is the best show on ABC and if they cancel it, beware for the loss of a network (ABC). I hate all of this and am permanently done with them until I see something positive. Keep GH on the freaking air.

I’m with you on this one Susan m. Don’t you love how todd made Sonny look like the giant clown with the red nose yesterday? And Starr is out of jail in record time today. Looks like Sonny has his work cut out for him with Todd manning and John Mcbain in town. I think all the one life to live crossovers are now characters on general hospital and they are blending in beautifully. I know you didn’t like Anthony z. I did he made me laugh hes a good actor hate to see him go.

I agree with you Brandon. OLTL characters are like fish out of water on GH. Starr is far too whiny and they seem to be characters with giant red clown noses (they stand out away from the GH crew). I hate seeing Anthony go, he drove me crazy and made me laugh my sides off and made me want someone to SHUT him UP! lol But he is an amazing actor and he will be missed.

@ Susan M. No offense to you but I would rather the actors from OLTL have their own show back. Contrary to what you think, I am an AVID FAN of OLTL & AMC and have been from the beginning, I loved the shows and still do. You can call me a purist but I think the actors talents deserve their own platform in which to showcase their vast experience. As for Starr, I am speaking solely as it refers to the character she is playing. I would have chosen a more mature approach for her role in dealing with… Read more »

I HATE everything about this story line. I don’t like RC turning Johnny into a monster and I REALLY dislike the fact that Bruce Weitz will be leaving the show. He was great as AZ and IMO it’s a huge loss. I’m also very much afraid that taking Johnny in this direction means BB will also get his walking papers soon. So much for FV’s denials that it wasn’t true. I really don’t see how they can take Johnny in this direction and keep him a central character on the show. Bad move, big mistake. Is this done to accommodate… Read more »

I think you are onto something. I think this might be the reason for the uproar about his supposedly being fired because, I too can see Johnny being painted into a corner now. It’s too bad. I see Johnny getting back with Carly and HIM thinking everything is right as rain in his life, but always looking over his shoulder at what he did. He can’t take back what he did to his grandfather. I have heard that Cole and Hope might not be about as “dead” as Robin is, but that remains to be seen. And Bruce Weitz was… Read more »

A brother or a cousin would be nice. I know I don’t want Anthony to leave. “Weekend at Bernie’s” was fun to watch. And only IDIOT cops would let that go, Wonder where poor Anthony will show up today? Maybe Sonny’s backyard. I also heard that not Cole but Hope may be alive. Forget the organ stealing, CALLING DR. DAVID HEYWARD. He knows how to keep people alive.

It was time for AZ to hit the road, and Johnny can follow on his heels. GHMobsterville is finally coming to an end and I couldn’t be happier.

there really has not been anyone who has quite taken on sonny, defusing him rather than having more shootouts until todd. this has real potential to help transition gh from the mob era–not kill off sonny and jason (they do have their fan base and have been good actors) but have them and the mob be one part of the canvas. if all of sonnys kids reject the fruits of his ill-gotten gains (like christina with being bought into college) maybe even sonny can turn into something else

You left me a post may 25 at 10 :36 pm, Its below, you said that star did not show Sonny the gun she planned on using it if Michael didn’t show up. When Sonny was telling Michael about the assault Sonny said that he could have grabbed the gun at any time, he was letting her get it out of her system. Also I do not think that Todd is the star of the show but Neither is Sonny there are several stars on general hospital Todd and sonny are a part of the many other characters.Back to star… Read more »

I’m with you Lisa! If they completely destroy Johnny’s character and fire BB, they will be ruining the show for me. I had great hopes for his relationship with Carly which would drive Sonny mad. 😉

That may be the end of GH for me, because I’m sick of smug Todd already. I saw enough of him on OLTL.

I actually wasn’t expecting this. It’s all going to depend on how they play this out in the coming months. Must be about time for one of Geary’s vacations. Pin the murder on Tracy, Luke takes the fall for it and escapes the country, and then it comes out later Johnny did it.

Bruce Weitz was a real asset to GH and I cannot believe they killed him off and that Johnny did it. Brandon has been doing amazing work on this story line but I am upset that Bruce is going. He really brought some humor, some cachet and amazing acting to GH. Loved his scenes with Tracy and Luke (the “weekend with Bernie” scene was hysterical). I hope GH finds a way to keep Anthony and that Johnny does not self-destruct. This is a soap, the writers can find a way!

barbara t

If general hospital has to get rid of different characters because of money getting rid of Anthony was wrong, Go to the port charles police department there are a few people there they can get rid of, Hell they never put anyone in jail anyway except poor little girls like starr and Matt will be next, where is the justice? Not very happy the way things are going, Ron bring Bruce back, We want to get rid of the mob but not him, I thought the weekend at bernie’s was fun to watch.

I guess my question at this point is, will Brandon be leaving the show. Seems like his character is pretty much ruined now. I really hate that. Was hoping that there would be a twist that saved him, but it doesn’t look that way. His callous remark about a 3 year old little girl being collateral damage, pretty much ruined him for me.

I feel like Johnny was pushed to the limit and finally snapped! He’s already visibly distraught with his actions and these events may just bring him out of the mob and become a business man. He has his revenge against Anthony and Cole & Hope was a terrible accident. Anthony Z was actually the cause of all the events because of what he had Claudia do 25 yrs before.

They better not be getting rid of Johnny. I adore him and was really pissed they took this road with his character. But if he somehow goes to jail for killing Hope and Cole, when it was an accident and yet Luke walks the streets after a hit and run, drunk driving and killing Jake, I think I will finally after 28 years stop watching this show. Saint Sonny and Saint Jason can kill and threaten people left and right and never get punished.

At first, I was shocked and disappointed at Johnny’s recent actions (sleeping with Connie, shooting out the tires, killing Anthony). Yes, Johnny is in the Mob, but there were lines I didn’t think he would cross. Now, thanks to Brandon Barash’s talent, we will see how much his conscience is bothering him and his feelings of guilt are tearing him up. Hope there will be a way to keep the character of Johnny and his portrayer on the show for a long time to come!

I hated Anthony – but have liked Bruce Weitz since his days on Hill Street Blues.

Too bad they couldn’t keep him around for a while and do a Weekend at Bernie’s type story – have him show up and people interact with the old dead guy.

I hate that Anthony is dead, I like that guy, He was nuts that’s why he was so interesting. They should have just kept him alive tending to his roses and making naughty remarks, He will be missed, There are still so many people working at the pcpd they could have got rid of and kept Bruce Weitz.

It wasn’t really in cold blood. The gun went off by accident. I am not sad to see Anthony go. The mob wars need to end. Tracy, Luke, Anna have a better triangle now. Johnny is sticking around, and now without grandpa can be free of the mob.

I don’t know how Heather got Anthony in the car either. Maybe another psychopath like Alison Perkins is helping her–they have a lot in common; maybe they were roommates once. And what was with that smile on Anthony’s face? He didn’t die looking that happy.

Yes, it would have been nice if they had kept Bruce Weitz. Anthony was quite a character. Maybe Bruce could come back as Anthony’s brother.

i’ve only watched GH, faithfully, like two years… i’ve read enough, posters, fan reaction to the MOB in port charles… ie: the SONNY, Jason, Carly show… and i def. agree with the latter. fleshing out… showing more of the actors, simply makes for more fan favorites. Has Sonny, ever really lost any one close to him? for him to quit the Mob? a wife or child? my take on this… what about Michael? this would def. shake Sonny… and Carly… to the core. Put them back on even keel… level with the rest of Port Charles…. ie: Jason… hopefully, finds… Read more »

Yes, Sonny lost a pregnant wife (Lily) due to his mob ties. She was blown up outside of Lukes Club right in front of Sonny’s face. (1995 or1996) That’s why (if you have been watching for 2 years) when Brenda was getting in the car after their church wedding (headed on their honeymoon) with Sonny watching her get in the car/ the car BLEW UP… that is why he was affected so bad, bc it was a repeat of what he had witnessed with his first wife, Lilly. In both instances, Luke was by his side, keeping Sonny from running… Read more »

I loved Bruce Weitz, as a actor. But I never liked Anthony on GH? I will miss all of the crazies, that he will make. But at the same, this storyline will play into the next month. To the real killer, of Johnny . I was and will still be, a Johnny fan. And his ghost will haunt, everyone that a motive and the means to killing him. That story will Intresting to watch. I know when Johnny snapped, was when he found out that Claudia was his mother. Ever since he wanted revenge. And by killing Anthony, was for… Read more »

I am still a Johnny fan too. Anthony talked about Claudia so disrespectfully that it pushed Johnny over the edge. Who can blame Johnny for killing Anthony after he lied to him for years about being his father and called Claudia a whore? But I will miss Anthony–he was one funny, wild, and crazy guy.

It is much easier to be bad than it is to be good. Johnny was always struggling with his unfortunate upbringing and always tried to do good (as far as we knew). Having him be responsible for the killing of Cole & Hope (if they are even really dead) is stupid and sucks. Also having him shoot Anthony point blank — really?? I am so sick of the mob stories on GH. Been a loyal viewer for years and all I can say is thank goodness for a FF button!!! I thought the new writers would slowly get rid of… Read more »

To the TPTB, Dr. David Hayward. Mr. Shakespeare… the irrepressible, enigmatic, Superlative Actor… Vincent Irizarry. what about DAYS? With Lexie leaving… let’s get Dr. hayward and Kayla in the hospital. Anything to boost DOOL’ ratings. OR? could he be the new Peter? Stefano’s Son…. imagine, him and Kristen…. manning the DiMera Empire.

If Frank can get Vincent Irizarry to reprise Dr. David on GH, I would be in heaven. Vincent and Finola were pure magic together on AMC. Make it happen Frank.

Thats right!!!! Let’s start a campaign to get Vincent Irizarry/ Dr. David Haywood on General Hospital. Forget about all these other, mentions….. David Haywood’s scenes are must see moments on a soap.

As much as I love Hayward, I disagree with you all. GH does not need Irizarry. GH is GH and AMC is AMC.

“As God Is My Witness”…. Tara….

LOL. Dr. David Hayward… does indeed belong on GH… with the powerful Finola Hughes. Dr. David and Anna. lying in wait for Robert Scorpio.

I have to champion DOOL! Go Chandler Massey and Grandma Marlena. You two ROCK! PURE EMMY CALIBUR PERFORMANCES!

DAYS! ? ARE YOU LISTENING? Eileen Davidson as Kristen! for passionate trysts with John and Marlena.

If they can keep vile characters like Sonny and Jason on, they can keep Johnny. First off, I loved the twist that Johnny was the culprit. About time a soap has the balls to have a popular contract player as the killer. Second, I’ve always hated the Anthony character and found him to be way over the top. Anthony was a major piece of sh** who made life hell for everyone. He killed Lucky’s wife, his own wife, pimped out his own teenage daughter to older skeevy men, shot Dante, blackmailed Tracy, shot Kate on her wedding day, etc. The… Read more »

well said… Nice. i agree, that’s what has posters, fans… all caught up… another popular contract player in question…. I like his acting. He’s intelligent… with all due respect.. he’s not that barbie doll, phoning in his act. Bimbo/model.

Heather: I couldn’t find a reply post for you on here, so I hope you get this, bc I ddn’t feel like looking for you on another page and replying when the conversation is on THIS page. If GH can spare how many OLTLifer’s, 5 and counting, THEN certainly GH can bring one (1) AMC alum on board and pay homorage to. It’s only fair. And I don’t think David Haywood would AT ALL turn GH into AMC, bc Haywood is such a dark, and enigmatic character, that he can wind up in town without a mention to his past… Read more »

Vincent Irizarry, so far as i know… has been on guiding light, Lujac? Y&R, David Chow. of course, the indominatable Dr. David Hayward, on AMC… he also did a two year stint on SANTA BARBARA. if fans, who are fans of VI’s acting… He’s not a type cast actor… Fans love his acting talent. IMO… it’s like, he really became AMCS Leading man… after David canary and palmer cortdlant left. Passing the torch if you will. I like your idea of bringing him on GH…. as an homage to AMC. i mention his acting gigs.. cause, he’s believeable in all… Read more »

I hate that Johnny was made the killer. Johnny was at least an interesting character. Now he is the same as the others. But of course he has to suffer. Unlike the dumb Sonny. His character says the same lines over and over and does terrible things but always gets away with it. At least on the other soaps characters went to jail. When Jax was let go I was disappointed because it made Carly’s character more interesting. But now Johnny is being ruined too. No wonder Steve Burton left.
