Sean Blakemore Reveals Exit from General Hospital

The soap rumor mill is often churning with fans of daytime drama, but tonight, Daytime Emmy-winner Sean Blakemore (Shawn, General Hospital) took a moment on his Twitter account to clarify the speculation that he was let go from the ABC daytime drama series.

Blakemore revealed that it was his decision to leave the show at this time, but left the door open for a return down the line.

When responding to a fans question on his status with the soap, Sean responded, “I appreciate you and ALL my wonderful supporters! I was absolutely NOT let go. It was my decision to exit the show because of other obligations. The GH family has been great to me! Who knows whats to come in the near future 🙂”

From the looks of recent scenes, it seemed that in story, the character of Shawn Butler was headed for a romance with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), but if Blakemore is exiting the show, looks like things are taking a different turn.

On Friday’s episode, Shawn told Alexis that some west coast newspapers are folding, and he’s thinking of buying the company, all in effort to grow The Invader’s reach. However, to do that, he would need to move to San Francisco and be based out of there.

Shawn would like a reason for him to stay in Port Charles, and Alexis can’t quite give him the answer he needs in that moment, since she hasn’t been involved with anyone since Neil died.  So, we shall see how this plays out on-screen.

For the meantime, what do you think about Sean leaving GH? Comment below.

I thought it would be a great thing for them to bring Shawn back, but honestly they haven’t used him very much. Can’t say that I blame him for looking for work elsewhere. It’s ironic though that he went into the newspaper publishing business, right around the time that his old job in the “coffee business” opened up again…. for the same reason it did the last time he had it – the supposed death of Jason. If he had re-applied for that job he might have had more airtime… at least until Jason makes his way back to Port… Read more »

There was never much of a storyline once Shawn got out of Pentonville. A very talented actor, who will find much work in primetime.

Missed opportunities in building out his familial ties. Could’ve easily been Phyllis’ brother.

How about staying to be with your son!!! This is so stupid!!! With them bringing Jordan back, just recast the role!!!

I wanted to see a triangle between Sean, Curtis, and the new,beautiful Jordan.

The new Jordan looks like she would be in a triangle between Mikey & Chase. She would look like Shawn’s daughter.

Yea, wished I looked that good at forty. Perhaps that is a very old photo.

This seems like odd timing given that they just recast Jordan, not to mention Taggart will be back soon too. It seems like GH didn’t know what to do with Shawn since he was released from prison, and I wasn’t too invested in a romance with Alexis. Hopefully they’ll keep him recurring and he’ll pop in from time to time.

Maybe if some time had been taken from THE SONNY & CARLY HOUR, Shawn could have had a story besides taunting Nikolas. But the writers’ priorities once again are obvious.

I love his character and was over the moon when they brought him back. We only got to see his here and there. I want a major story for him so bad.

Waited so long for this great guy to come back, then he’s here only long enough to save Alexis’s bacon and he’s off again. Will miss you Sean, I was looking forward to big things.

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!
