Tyler Christopher Clarifies While Not Official Yet, He Thinks His GH Return Will Be September!

This afternoon at the GHFCW weekend event with Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and Rebecca Budig (Hayden), the reigning Daytime Emmy-winning actor for Outstanding Lead Actor informed the crowd that he will be returning to General Hospital.

While other soap opera outlets including On-Air On-Soaps first received reports coming out of the event that Tyler would return in September, the actor sent out a follow up tweet to clarify what he said during the fan event and to make sure the media and his passionate fans were all on the same page with him. Tyler related via a tweet:  “Slow down every1 I said I THINK Sept. will b my return 2 #GH. Nothing official yet. Thanks for all the love 2day though.”

The popular star left GH back in June citing “personal reasons”, and was temporily replaced by Nick Stabile since Nikolas’ storyline was front burner. Stabile held down the fort, and then in a recent episodes Nikolas was shot, crashed through a glass window and fell off a balcony on Cassadine Island, thanks to Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).  That signaled the end of Stabile’s run as the dark prince.
So, happy about the news of an imminent return by Tyler Christopher?  Glad he clarified the situation for all? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Missed Tyler so much! I hope he comes back asap.

Would like to have had more clarification as to just why he left/was absent. If it’s “contract troubles,” why not just say so? If the “personal reason” is illness (his or a family member) why not just say so. This nebulous reason just leave us wondering, speculating, etc.

Why is it anybody’s business? Just because they have a job as an actor doesn’t mean they have no right to privacy.

I know from looking at his Facebook account page that his mother died a few months ago. That could certainly qualify for wanting/needing time off.

I certainly wouldn’t feel compelled to tell a stranger the intimate details of my life. It’s not our business. His job is to entertain as he’s done wonderfully for many years. Beyond that, no explanation is needed.

I am afraid of the kind of story that will explain his long absence. I do not trust the current regime. They have the Reverse Midas Touch, everything they touch turns to kaka!

That’s what I was thinking-not that I don’t believe the actor is entitled to his privacy (as intimated by Clh’s rely to my post). I just think it is ominous when TBTB are less than transparent about THEIR comments. Why the secrecy? I’m with you–long story short–“I do not trust the curent regime.”

yeah know..
I like Nick Stabile as Nikolas, I really do..
I will miss him..
However;
I am happy Tyler is returning, it’s rightful…
A bit of bitter sweet …

Su, I actually agree with you!! Who knew!! Well, at least 95 % anyway. I thought Nick did a great job; however, nobody can replace Tyler Christopher. And as for Molly Burnett, I absolutely love her in this role. If Kirsten Storms had never played it, I would say Molly owns it. But in my heart, there can only be one Maxie Jones and nobody does it better than Kirsten Storms.

I am glad they were able to come up with two great replacements. Makes the absence a lot easier to tolerate.

I like her too…but she’s so different in demeanor that it’s like watching a different character. She actually looks very good with Nathan and Griffin. But I like Kirsten so much….problem is some understudies take so long to get used to or we never do…but Nick and Molly caught on quickly. They should find a place for them all!

“if” any – one – should be eating crow… and foot come forward in my defense… ie: Molly Burnett she has been on “DAYS” three times her original debut… which… I did not mind at all… she came she rang she did she made two returns after her original debut I could not stand her last two returns in my defense… I’m certain all three times.. she’s been @DAYS… have been with THREE differing writing “teams” so their you have it I am stunned by her rebirth … @GH if GH wanted to take “Maxie” in a whole nother arena…… Read more »

I would rather Nick Stabile assume the role of Nikolas Cassadine, permanently. He suited the role much more and has a better chemistry as the character than Tyler has.

clh
Guest
clh

Totally disagree. Tyler is Nikolas and always will be. Yes Nick has great chemistry with Ava but she doesn’t belong in this story at all it would make zero sense that her and Nikolas would pair up for any reason.

He never seemed like Nikolas to me at all and just seemed like a new character in a story with Ava. If they brought him on as an interest for Ava that would be great, but he’s not Nikolas and definitely not a Cassadine

Nick should be added to the canus,as he is a better actor than some regulars.

I couldn’t disagree more. Nick Stabile did an admirable job, but I never bought him in the role. It never clicked for me. It was too forced. Maybe they’ll find another role for him on the show. Tyler is the best and only Nikolas Cassadine, and has owned the character for almost 20 years. He and Maura West had undeniable chemistry in the few scenes they shared together, before he left the show, so I look forward to them hopefully picking up with that.

Patrick
Guest

this “forced” relationship with Hayden is a bust

it had all the steam required.. “when” they first met… pent up desires

the writers did way too much “war of the roses” over money

bye bye Hayden… the romance has dulled

it’s now Nicholas and Ava turn

it would be a magnanimous decision to let the characters of Ava and Nicholas be.

and, YES, the bigger reason is it gets Maura West OUT of anything Carly and Sonny.

imagine how high brow and elevated these two would reign supreme

Nicholas / Ava / Spencer / Kiki / Avery

Agreed, Scott! Tyler well-served the role of Prince Nicky for many years, but over the last 12 months or so, I just wasn’t feeling him as the formerly good Cassadine gone bad. Nick Stabile captured that essence far better, and given he successfully settled into the character fairly quickly, it wouldn’t have gone amiss to keep him.

Celia
Guest

Say it again, Shaybelle. I know everyone will resent me for saying it, but Nick Stabile conquered that ” princely”, unassuming demeanor and hauteur so intrinsically aristocratic like sweet, sweet creme on a crepe. Was he born to the role?
Nick Stabile has a refined aura about him. I am not into barrel-chested, oafish men…..I will definitely miss that quiet charm of his.

Shay
Guest

I hear you, CeeCeeGirl!!! I like that sort of silent mystique/cool aloofness in my aristos, too!!! Don’t get me wrong, even though TC was never personally my “cup of tea”—-Shades of Helena there…..no pun intended!—he portrayed his character in an oh-so-polite/good prince manner through the years, and I appreciated his efforts. But once he surrendered to the darkness in his bloodline and began behaving like a real Cassadine, I just didn’t find his Nik either palatable or believable….he suddenly became an inelegant slob! Not so with Stabile…..he nailed that insouciant royal aura with skilled subtlety and an innate sense of… Read more »

This time with a BULLET… so Valentin must have him healing in one of their deep freeze cryo chambers. .otherwise he’s stiff as a board in some very thick hedges. .or they’ll find an outline of his body and a deep hole in the earth like loony toons ..I swear they should put a diving board over a cliff for characters to practice how to survive a fall from great heights. ..I bet there’s a hidden one on Cassidine island. ..YEESH!!!

Glad to know when you’re returning Tyler…. I love you and dislike you at times, but no one can play Nicholas like Tyler Christopher… I just wish that you would leave Jasam alone so they can get on with their lives, I’m sure there are other problems are ahead for them, because that’s how soaps work, so on that note Welcome Home where you belong.

Let’s just hope that Nikolas being back on canvas will mean that idiot Jordan can drop her weekly arrest warrant on Jason. ..or maybe not since did leave her “jurisdiction”. Ha! Her jurisdiction shouldn’t go any further than the local nail salon. Now I guess it’ll be Franco’s turn for every OTHER crime in town. I don’t see the Tyler/Maura chemistry myself yet, but I’m willing to give it a bit more time.

Great news, love Tyler! Hope he signed a new contract or whatever the hold up was, and we’ll be seeing him on GH for years to come. He’s the only Nikolas Cassadine, anyone else is just trying to fill his shoes.

The actor who replaced him is owed a debt of gratitude–he was so good at keeping the story going while fleshing out this character as his own. He was really good ,and I think we should all applaud him loudly. That said, yes, of course Tyler is greatly missed. I am happy to know that he may not return to the screen until September comes (as Green Day sings, “Wake me up when September comes”). Because every time there is crack in the background and the characters wonder who it is, I will know that it’s always going to be… Read more »

Agree all around Harry in everything you posted, especially how BORRRINGGG Jason and Sam are.

Sam was always one of my favorite female character but ever since she was paired with Jason, it has just been snoozefest galore..There is no acting chemistry between the two actors..When Billy’s Jason was with Rebecca’s Elizabeth, chemistry was oozing even with a dull storyline

Sam needs a Jasonless storyline and maybe Jason and Elizabeth can be pair up with a reborn psycho Franco as a love triangle.

I never get the actor is “owed a debt of gratitude” thing. He or she isn’t doing anyone a favor…they’re thrilled that they’re getting paid to do a craft the love! They’re actors…and I bet when they get the call they’re thrilled. With that said, Nick Stabile is quite the looker/charmer and I enjoyed his more playful Nicolas…though that’s not who Nicloas is at the present time. That’s another thing that’s strange to me.nehen an actor takes on a role…he or she is taking on a character…a fictional person whom the writer has created. So, unless the writer wants to… Read more »
