Soap Favorite Vincent Irizarry to Undergo Emergency Surgery

Photo: IMDB

We are sending good thoughts and prayers to soap veteran and Daytime Emmy-winner, Vincent Irizarry.  The actor will undergo an emergency medical procedure on Friday at Cedar-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.

Irizarry’s girlfriend, Yvonne Gilson, shared via Facebook, what happened to Vincent and the plan for the surgery.

Gilson expressed: I need to share some sad news about sweet Vincent and ask for prayers. 🙏🏻. Back in December, Vincent was walking out a restaurant/bar and witnessed a man being volatile to his wife in the parking lot. He went right over to intervene and calm the man down and instead was then violently hit to the ground himself, suffering multiple bruises and a serious head gash and concussion resulting in fluid to his brain. The man then proceeded to beat his wife unconscious. Vincent was rushed to the ER and had to be treated for his head wound, injuries and tests run. Unfortunately, that fluid has increased substantially over the last 3 months requiring emergency head surgery this Friday morning. To all his fans, friends, followers and prayer warriors out there, please please please send Vincent positive vibes and please keep him in your prayers at this time. Say a special one for his surgeon and a 💯 successful procedure and speedy recovery.”

Daytime audiences have loved Vincent’s portrayals through the years as Lujack and Nick on Guiding Light, Dr. David Hayward on All My Children, David Chow on Y&R, Deimos Kiriakis on DAYS, and Dr. Jordan Armstrong on B&B.

Send your well-wishes for Vincent via the comment section as he goes through his medical procedure tomorrow.

This is such a sad story. Another animalistic psycho let’s loose on a woman and innocent people have to suffer. I sure hope they catch this psycho and deal with him properly. All best wishes to Mr. Irizarry and his loved ones. I really loved him as Lujack on GL, circa 1985/86. He sounds like a stand-up guy.

Prayers and positive vibes to Iziarry and his family,

Poor baby I hope he will be ok

I’m sorry for what he experienced it’s nice to help people but don’t get involved on people s problem s I would of called the police that is what they are there for. Best wishes and prayers for this wonderful person

I wouldn’t be surprised if onlookers had already called the police and they weren’t arriving fast enough. He may have decided it was better to step in rather than stand there watching a woman get beat to death. Maybe his involvement distracted the attacker long enough to keep her attack from being fatal. We just don’t know because we weren’t there. Best wishes to him and I hope he has a good recovery. And may the attacker be brought to justice.

Hey, Vincent, Kristyl here. Man…you sure got yourself into trouble, my friend! Bottom line, I’m sorry for all you are going through and hope you have a positive outcome. Just to make you smile..I’m going to say this may be Karma for that Labidazone….;) Seriously though…prayers sent your way from me and the pups out in the Palm Springs area. Stay strong, you will be whole again 🙂 Love, K and puppers.

OMG, that’s a twisted way to offer well wishes! Good luck to Vincent.

It really was, Lou. What was that? I have a dark sense of humor but THAT wasn’t funny. Sending good thoughts to Vincent who really is a true hero.

Prayers that the surgery goes well and that Vincent recovers quickly. I had the pleasure of meeting him in person at Disneyland and getting my picture taken with him. He was so nice.

So very sorry for Vincent. Please get well soon. Heavenly Father please help Vincent to recover from this terrible head injury.I say this in the name of Jesus Christ my Savior. Amen

Prayers lifted!

Sending prayers for Vincent

I wish him well. I know he was trying to help, but sometimes it’s best just to call for the police. This guy obviously didn’t care who he hurt.

Prayers for a speedy recover. God Bless!!!

He was so brave to try to intervene and has paid dearly for doing so. I wish him well and hope for a successful outcome. I know him from AMC primarily, fantastic actor.

Vincent Irizarry: I never watch Soap Operas, but what this man did, Vincent Irizarry, was a kind act to prevent a woman being beat up, however, because he stepped in he was the one getting severely injured. And I am speaking this prayer to God, I know He answers prayers as He did when I prayed to Him when we needed to leave Chicago during the time of riots, the evidence of God working was clear in a newspaper ad lying on my kitchen counter with an ad for a house in the Town of Pines. I called, and made contact with the people and now I have lived in the Town of Pines, IN, my entire life, my husband now passed from Cancer, but what I’m saying I know God works for me and others and so I send prayers for Mr. Irizarry who I do not know except that he is a decent man who stepped in without the fear of what would happen to him. God knew our need years ago and my faith was confirmed that He can step in, He can save this man because Vincent Irizarry is a decent man who stepped in to save a woman from harm. God save him, and God give this woman a better life, no one deserves to live in fear. Vincent Irizarry is on my mind this a.m. with gratitude for his caring act of love, please God get this man thru this operation He is a very good man who has much to give in a world where hate lives, but love survives because God lives, and so does His people who do His Work as Vincent Irizarry did when He saw evil at work and tried to step in and stop this man who was full of hate with every intent to strike down this woman in the worse way possible. Thank you, God for the good people of this world.

Hoping for a full recovery; he’s a hero to that woman he tried to help. May he come out of this with his health restored.

Love and prayers to you, dear Vincent. God has you in His Healing Arms and your doctors hands are guided with the Angels’ Wings during surgery. May our dear Lord Jesus give you Peace and Comfort during your recovery time and your sweet Love-mate be comforted by His Everlasting Love and Peace. Can’t wait to hear you are on the mend. God bless and love you!

Sending healing vibes and many prayers to Vincent and his loved ones

This lends further credence to the old adage: “no good deed goes unpunished.” But we should still do good deeds, and I pray for a speedy recovery for Irizarry.

I agree with your view, Jamesj75. Do you remember the young actor David Huffman, mid 1970s thru mid 80s? He was a good actor and ridiculously handsome. He was in ICE CASTLES, FIST, and many other credits. He tried to intervene, under different circumstances, in a criminal situation in 1985…and was murdered for his efforts. The assailant is still in prison. Such a promising career just ended in a few seconds. Let’s hope Mr. Irizarry makes a full recovery.

Thank you, Soaphound. No, I was not aware of the tragedy you describe involving David Huffman. It’s all so unfortunate. I share your hopes about Mr. Irizarry. Take care, Friend.

James…I’ve been such a big fan of Vincent Irizarry starting back in the 1980s…when be played Lujack and (later on) Nick McHenry on Guiding Light. I hope and pray that Mr. Irizarry pulls through this and makes a full and complete recovery. Also…I was a fan of David Huffman and his movies. Back in 1980, Mr. Huffman starred in Blood Beach…a horror movie about evil and mysterious forces pulling people underneath the sand. Then, in 1981, Mr. Huffman starred in St. Helens…a true story about the eruption of Mount St. Helens back in May of 1980. To me (in real life), David Huffman died as a HERO!!!!! Yes.


Take care.

Thank you for your reply, jaybird 369! I can certainly understand being a long-term fan of Irizarry — such a great actor. Interesting stuff about Huffman. Take care, Friend!

Please dear God give the doctor wisdom, and Vincent courage and strength! We ask for a complete healing for Vincent! We know with you, all things are possible! Amen!

Please God make Vin dude pull through he’s a good person that deserves many years ahead of him.

Very appropriate that he’s at a hospital named Cedars.

Major PRAYERS for Vincent, medical staff and all of Vicent’s family/friends for being there for Vincent. Vicent’s actions says a lot about his character as a man/person… GOD BLESS…

I hope and pray that Vincent’s emergency surgery went well. And I hope that violent psycho is sitting in a nice very small jail cell.

He should be in a padded cell, outfitted with a straight-jacket.
My prayers and best wishes go out to Vincent for a complete recovery.
He would have served himself better by just calling 911, but he just jumped in not even thinking of his own safety, God Bless him!

Sending warm thoughts and prayers to Vincent.

Praying for you!

Prayers for Vincent for a speedy recovery. Such a brave man and wonderful actor. I loved him on Guiding Light.

Good luck with everything and I’m praying for you. I wish you nothing but the best. Plus I have faith you will pull through all of this.

I send my heartfelt prayers and best wishes to Mr Irrzari and his family and his girlfriend that he recovers fully from this incident and no harm should touch him ever again dear Lord God Jesus Christ holy Spirit watch over as he goes through this trying point in his life bless him protect him keep him safe and out of harm’s Way help him to heal and help him to be well and strong once again and be the good man that we always knew he was there is no other like him please help him and heal him and make him better than what he is and guide his surgeon’s hands so he may recover fully and be back on his feet well and strong and blessed by you my dear Lord God my holy Spirit I just Jesus bloss him and protective and keep him safe and out of harm’s Way in Jesus Christ’s name I pray amen and an amen

Many prayers are being sent.
Thank you for sharing this news

For those who haven’t heard the news, Vincent’s surgery went very well and he’s sitting up enjoying his life. Saw this on another site yesterday as we don’t get news here until days later.

I pray your strength in the LORD!
