It’s going to be a wrap for Sean Kanan’s return to ABC’s General Hospital, as A. J. Quartermaine remains this week in critical condition after bullet from Sonny! According to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, “Kanan will continue working at GH through March 28th, and be seen on the show for few weeks after that.”
However, Sean will next return to his old stomping grounds of The Bold and the Beautiful to reprise the role of Deacon Sharpe! Look for Kanan to mark his return to the CBS soap opera on an episode of the series scheduled to air on June 13th.
Kanan’s exit from General Hospital comes at a mutual decision by the actor and executive producer Frank Valentini. The fan favorite performer explainedt o TVG: “I was thrilled to be brought back to GH for the 50th anniversary and really enjoyed working with Frank Valentini, but I was not over the moon about the writing. Doing stories about panic attacks and relish was not what I thought I’d signed up for. I feel I brought everything I could to the character yet it was obvious they weren’t going to give me a great love story, which I found very disappointing. “
Sean went on to say he saw the writing on the wall: “I spoke with Frank and we mutually agreed that if I wasn’t happy, and they could find a good way to write me out, that it was best to wrap it up.”
Next, Kanan related he called up B&B head honcho, Brad Bell to tell him he was available again and the CBS soap was happy to have him return and offered him a contract!
So, what do you think about the news of Sean Kanan leaving GH? Are you disappointed? Do you think A.J. should have a romance that had some legs to it? How will they write A. J. out this time? Are you glad though, that Sean is returning to B&B as Deacon? Comment below!
