Tristan Rogers Headed to Y&R! Ron Carlivati Tweets He Had No Idea Tristan Was Leaving GH!

Last night, Daytime Confidential broke the story that their sources have informed them that fan favorite Tristan Rogers (Robert, GH) is headed back to The Young and the Restless in the role of Colin Atkinson!  Rogers return is part of a major storyline planned for Jess Walton’s Jill!

The revelation that Rogers is exiting Port Charles, when he has been appearing on General Hospital as a part of Robin’s return storyline, shocked GH’s head writer Ron Carlivati, who took to Twitter last night and admitted, “Guys, I had no idea @tristanrogers was leaving.  I found out last night.  I now have 1 day to write him out of a big Feb Sweeps storyline.  Meanwhile, you will see a lot of Robert between now and February! And please respect @tristanrogers and his decision. Thanks. #GH

So, what do you think of Tristan departing Port Charles to head back to Genoa City?   Would you have preferred to see him on GH instead of Y&R?  Are you excited to hear about major story plans for Jess Walton and Tristan? Or, are you upset that Tristan will not be part of the GH canvas  in the near future? Weigh-in!

I’m excited, I really liked him on Y&R and with Jill. Hopefully the writing for him will be better with MAB gone.

I mention he was leaving under the Micheal/Morgan report…was he let go or did he not have a contract so he left 4 Y&R when the offer came…is this a long term return or not…maybe he can come back to GH in the future…maybe this is a sinister plot by CBS to create a mega soap and ruin GH…will abc sue cbs now because of this…sorry folks…i guess i read too much about PP insane lawsuit blaming ABC for their failure to keep their soaps afloat…lol

Meanwhile, Sabrina mentioned she has never seen a picture of her mother…later Tracy mentioned she always wished she had a daughter…is it possible Sabrina is Tracys daughter and a Quatimaine…maybe?

Well, that would be completely ridiculous given that she was born and raised in Puerto Rico, but that just makes it all the more likely to play out on screen the way GH works now. After all, we’re winding down on all the paternity stories so its time to start another one.

I still say… Ellie… man, was she HOT – her hair – the other day… when she was talking with Spinelli… and he re-assured her.. they were still together… and that it was Dianne who suggested that he and Maxie get married….

Ellie, the cute intellect… who has more to her… than meets the eye….

and yet… like oil and water… with Traci… meet me 1/2 way… I always say….

I think these two … as mother/daughter would be oodles of layers, FUN to unfold

I read in a spoiler that Sabrina may be Lily’s child with Sonny. Lily may not be dead; but, is alive and heading up her father’s business. That, I can’t see; but, I can see how she may be Sonny’s daughter.

GH is bugging me…Maxi accidentally caused the lab explosion, and everyone thought Robin died but she was kidnapped and her death was faked by Jerry Jax…how did he manage to pull it off…did he just happen to be lurking in the shadows when the explosion happen…he couldnt possibly know Maxi would accidentally cause the accident, and use the opportunity to kidnap Robin and fake her death, and how would he manage to get in and out of the lab and replace Robin with a different body that was burnt beyond recognition…are we suppose to believe Maxi just happen to cause… Read more »

Yes, Patrick…i would like Ellie to be Tracis daughter…and hope its true…Traci mention she always wanted a daughter but earlier Sabrina mention she never seen her moms picture makes me wonder if they are hinting at a Traci/Sabrina mother pairing…

While I am happy to see Tristan on my tv screen in any role, I am always partial to Robert Scorpio. He is the reason I started watching GH back in the 80’s. Obviously GH never put TR on contract so he has the right to go to Y&R if he so chooses but IMO that’s where the higher ups at ABC/GH screwed up. Sign him to a contract and cut the ridiculous Franco storyline or other deadweight that a majority of viewers aren’t interested in.

Elhu

I also agree, Tristan Rogers will ALWAYS be Robert Scorpio to me. I understand that the actor is entitled to work where he pleases, but Robert without Anna, Robin and Luke, does not work to well for me. Not so thrilled with the blindside to GH either, does not sound fair to me, pushing the GH writers into a corner, but they will work it out just fine, I am sure. I do wish Tristan the very best though.

Harry

I agree too. Scorpio is cooler than the other side of the pillow. Franco is Tanko and Carly is about as appealing as a truffle snorting pig.

Yes, I’m sure the “shock” is not such a shock to RC. If an actor doesn’t have a contract, he has to find a way to make a living.
Love Tristan and his legacy character. Back to my premise: If you speak up your head will roll. Evidence: Tristan and Genie.

Sheesh Harry, with viewers (or now former viewers) like you, no wonder soaps are dying! Where are the fans that just love the whole show? Not one particular actor/character/couple? I feel in love with GH way back when Felicia was first introduced in the 80’s. Guess what, I feel found myself entranced by the whole show. Felicia left a couple of times, but I was hooked on the whole feeling of the show. I tried to get into other shows, but I knew GH was it for me. I can’t imagine abandoning it because an actor left.

Haha amen! I love Robert Scorpio, but honestly, the way all the writers have treated him over the years-on a day, off a year, on a week, off two years-what did they expect? I love that Ron says he now has “One day to write him out of a big February Sweeps story.” PLEASE! I love Ron and Frank (for the most part), but while I may have been born at night, I was not born LAST night! They were going to probably have him in what, two episodes in February to walk Robin down the aisle when she re-marries… Read more »

Anybody with half a brain knew he was just brought on because RC needed him for a little bit for the saint Robin to come back. I mean Holly was supposedly by his side seen any sightings of her? I hope they write good story for him over at Y&R they had a gold mine in him he fit the part perfectly and they blew it before.

Sad news!!! I am happy Tristan will have work… but I really wanted Robert Scorpio to be on our GH canvas for a long while. I understand he needs to go where the work is but… it’s a bummer for GH fans! I do watch Y&R and will enjoy seeing him again… but… I am wishing GH could do something to keep him on GH!!!

I have been a fan of Tristan since his early days on GH. Loved when they had him on the Y&R, but unfortunately, the writers at that time didn’t do his acting skills justice. Welcome back to Y&R Tristan. Hope the new writers don’t make you into too much of a bully 🙂

Had Ron not put Tristan’s character away for winter storage while in the midst of a very exciting storyline, not only would Ron have more than one day to write for him for February sweeps, TR most likely would not have left. It was clear TR was enjoying playing the hell out of Robert Scorpio and doing an amazing job of it. Then Ron takes him off the canvas just as the storyline is about to climax. This has not only been frustrating for viewers, it’s got to be frustrating for the actors involved. TR’s leaving is on Ron Carvilati.… Read more »

Tristan Rogers is Robert Scorpio. I am so disappointed that he is leaving GH. I really wanted to watch the reunited Scorpio family. I was also hoping for a Robert/Anna reunion down the line. Just hope he’s back someday soon!

Matthew
Guest
Matthew

I agree Susan! Very disappointing! I hope Ron Carlivati can throw together a meaningful departure given the lack of time to prepare. I think Y&R should have given GH more of a heads up before they snatched Tristan away. It’d be nice to see a little common courtesy between the soaps that are left. Competing networks or not, the whole genre is still in survival mode and they are in that boat together.

Elizabeth
Guest
Elizabeth

Why would Y&R need to give GH a heads up? Presumably Tristan could have done so. Obviously he did not feel so compelled. The way actors are treated on GH (no contracts for those who have been on the canvas for years, but all the OLTL’rs and all the new RC creations do get contracts) I wouldn’t blame every one of them for trying to go somewhere else. Much as I love Robert Scorpio – and I absolutely do, there is a part of me that thinks this is a good thing because it is one less thing keeping me… Read more »

It is true that Tristan’s persona just screams “free agent!” No doubt that only adds to his considerable charms, but I cannot believe he would have turned down a fab offer to continue his star-making role of Robert Scorpio for the foreseeable future….GH was simply outbid, or did they even bother to make an offer????

Chaz, ya think? So do I. How insulting to bring in all the newbies and leave the legacy characters—one so beloved as Scorpio–out in the cold.
It’s obvious that RC is writing for HIMSELF, not for the characters or the loyal views.
What a fiasco! What a farce!

I’m sure the “diehard” GH fans will blame Ron & Frank, since they blame them for everything!! “Laura wasn’t on the show today. It’s their fault.” “Aj wasn’t on the show today. It’s their fault.” “Liz wasn’t on the show today. It’s their fault.” “It rained today. It’s their fault.” “I got fired today for blogging about GH. It’s their fault.” (But NEVER credit Ron & Frank with SAVING GH from cancellation!!)

Could not have said it better myself. They also blame them for this whole Prospect Park suing ABC.

Elizabeth

Why would anyone blame Frank and Ron for a lawsuit where they were pretty much in control of all the contract provisions that were presumably ignored? I’m sure they’re both completely innocent and uninvolved! Even if ABC wins they will spend millions defending it. I’m sure that is part of the budget issues at GH.

They did not save GH from cancellation. And yes, we blame them for taking characters off the canvas while they are in the middle of an exciting storyline. It’s choppy disruptive writing–Ron cannot multitask to save his life.

Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Actors can only appear in so many episodes and some have other obligations…thats why they are not shown all the time…ratings have risen because of Frank and Ron which indeed saved the show from cancellation…if they not come to GH and the ratings stayed low GH wouldve long been gone…so they did save the show!!!

Harry, It today’s bleak economic times, lets say Harry the Executive Producer and Harry the Head Writer multi-task, keep the budget to a bare minimum (no more 80s money baby!), and come up with exciting stories to get people back to watching a 50+ year old soap. Frank and Ron have done this in spades. Your choice not to believe how much they have helped the show stay on the air.

I see your point, though the rain comment was a bit out there, LOL. Frank and Ron did save GH, though, and as for A.J., Liz and Laura, RC did an interview and explained that A.J.’s trial will be starting soon (it got delayed because of Robin’s return), Liz will be coming up in a story soon too, and Laura has been written off the show due to Genie Francis’ other obligations/scheduling conflicts.

I am in total agreement. Yes, I would love to see my faves (Robert, Anna, Laura, et al) everyday, but, it’s just not possible. The soap industry of old is gone. Big contracts, big salaries, big overhead, are a thing of the past. The only way GH can be cost effective AND give us our beloved characters is to create these short-term opportunities. I would rather have my faves in bits and bites than watch them languish to backburner hell, relegated to dispensing coffee and advice.

Well I am surprise he would want to go back considering how shabby they dismissed him from the role when he was last there. However for the character Jill, Colin was her perfect match and I loved the chemistry between the two, so I am glad they are bringing him back. But a lot of GH fans are going to be disappointed with the news.

“.. However for the character Jill, Colin was her perfect match”

ditto…. I really liked this pair… then came Genevieve… too bad she isn’t back…

Genie Francis’ Genevieve.. was kicking in to high gear… and she across the canvas… was riveting… not any thing… like GH’ Laura.

man… say Genevieve, did come back…

Genie Francis would actually…. make… Victor and Jack, interesting

Happy for Jess Walton…. Jill deserves this

How I Feel About it! I am heartbroken. However totally respect and love Tristan and his decision. If GH is not going to use him and someone else is offering then he must do what is best for him and his family. Tristan returned in October and GH has received the highest ratings in years and they barely used him. GH Loss is now Y&R Gain and obviously JFP has been paying attention to Y&R ratings going down and GH ratings increased because of Tristan return and he went after the GOLD!

It sounds to me like Y&R offered Tristan Rogers something he couldn’t refuse-maybe a contract? Little bit more long term?

I’m excited! Tristan Rogers is a phenomenal actor and I liked his pairing with Jill. Now that MAB is gone, hopefully the writing will be much better for him. And hopefully, his return will set the stage for Genie Francis coming back as Genevieve! I’ve missed them both on Y&R the past year. Yes, they’ve been doing a really great job on GH where they both started out, but I think they worked really well as enemies/scorned lovers on Y&R.

As soon as I heard Cynthia was coming to the show I let my mind wander about possible story ideas and ties to the canvas her character could have.

Plus, Cynthia Watros and Peter Bergman could have such great chemistry between them. And wouldn’t it just twist the knife in Jack’s back to fall in love with Kelly, and then have it turn out she’s Genevieve’s daughter?! Oh, the story possibilities… Colin would go through… Read more »

Seems Rogers had a better deal offered from Y&R than GH.

Can we drop the term “megasoap?” I am not fond of it.

I like GH but actors/characters come and go so quickly and the fanfare is sometimes short-lived. Part of the joy in serial drama is the investment we have. I want to see my favorites with regularity. Sad the economics of the business does not accommodate that common desire. That said, Rogers and Walton were very good together in Y&R. This also give the Cane character more to do, more with whom to interact.

Well I wish him well at Y&R, but he will always be Robert Scorpio to me. It’s a shame he can’t do both soaps. I did not like the Colin character at all on Y&R and I don’t think Tristan and Jess Walton had any chemistry.

This is a real shame. If GH wanted him for February sweeps, then they should have negotiated that as part of his appearances. Frank’s model of having lots of actors not on contract that come and go can backfire. Tristan Rogers clearly got a better offer, with what I suspect is a very good storyline, from Y&R. He enjoys playing Colin who is quite different than Scorpio and is without all the baggage that goes along with playing such an iconic, beloved character as Robert. I doubt there was any kind of major falling out, just simply that Frank/ABC didn’t… Read more »

Bottom line, is Y&R made TR a offer he couldn’t refuse and GH was content to just keep toying around with him, not really securing him on GH. More power to him for doing the smart thing and taking the better deal. Enough said.

Tristan Rogers… is making a smart move…

he… unlike Luke… who still likes traipsing around the make believe globe… globetrotting… their youth…. LOL… still hot to trotting… as WSB… supercharged heros…

Tristin Rogers’ – Colin… is in a sexy sensual, adult drama… romancing Jess Walton’ Jill…. what better way to further along.. a story for him… that already works…

I was wondering if this was a case of Phelps-style revenge vis-à-vis Cartini swiping Marcy Rylan after Y&R fired her–but that role was quickly filled by a friend of Jill. Phelps can’t be trusted, and soap fans know that. I have stopped watching Y&R in the wake of Delia’s senseless death, but I highly doubt fans being offered anything other than bread crumbs. Jess Walton is the show’s best actress but older than the type of woman Phelps usually prefers.

Shay

Well if the “Cartini-swiping” of Rylan is an issue for JFP, then she should have no need for revenge….she can simply derive immense pleasure from the fact that the “NuLuLu” recast has been an epic failure…..and it only has gone from bad to worse! As “ShrewLu” Rylan is now just downright unlikeable and unwatchable!!!!

He left GH for Y&R because he could, no contract to bind him, he did not even inform FV or RC that he was leaving, he simply up and left LOL
As you, I do not believe that TR has a contract with Y&R, either,,
I think giving closure to his left behind Y&R story intrigued him, he wanted to do it, and he did, because he could 🙂

I am very very disappointed that Robert will be gone. I was so looking forward to Anna and Robert rescueing Robin,. The super spys are locked up by a dying scum bag? that should have told us Frank doesn’t care. Scorpios story brought the ratings up. Did tptb not see that. Do they think we can be brought back and will not turn the show off again? Think again. Except for this storyline I just dvr and FF most of it. Tristan is a person he gets hungry, he has bills and he needs to have a paycheck. .I do… Read more »

I love TR as the super spy Robert Scorpio .. the best character ever! I don’t like the Colin character on Y&R at all = boring. I didn’t like that character at all, and I didn’t see much chemistry with anyone on Y&R. Tucker was a much better character. Hopefully, TR will be back some day? Maybe they can bring back Frisco now??

The writers should be put on recurring no contract status. That would fix budget problems. Let’s see how they like it.

I don’t watch GH so glad he’s returning to Y&R. Seems strange that someone in charge at GH doesn’t know the status of his actors. Guess he wasn’t under contract at GH and he will be at Y&R? Either way, looking forward to it. He can only HELP Y&R, which is in desperate need of help.

I love Tristan Rogers! He will always be Robert Scorpio to me! There seems to be a miscommunication with many of the Veterans brought back-Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, and Jack Wagner. I would much rather see the veterans than a lot of the newcomers. Take Kristen Alderson, for example. As I was watching her in the scenes at Ava’s art gallery and then on the pier when Michael was in the water, all I could think was that she was way out of her league. Ron keeps shoving her down our throats as Kiki. It’s like nails on a chalkboard… Read more »

I think he’ll be back on GH at some point. If I was him, I’d be enjoying the best of both world too ! Nothing wrong with surviving is there ? Actors have to work… and he’s got a good gig going on both shows. Bravo to him !

I’ll watch him wherever he goes. I think Y&R offered him more money. I am really excited for Jill to have a storyline again.

I am very upset with GH for failing to give him a regular contract. He will always be
Robert Scorpio. GH could have given him a contract a long time ago. I heard him
say in an interview he would like a long term contract. But now he is gone. I am
heartbroken. The producers of GH are fools. Bye Tristan Good Kuck
