What is General Hospital's Resident Prick, Brad Cooper Going To Do Next?

Talk about sleazy! General Hospital’s gay lab tech Brad Cooper, played to the hilt by Parry Shen, has some  key screen time on the next three episodes of the ABC soap today, Thursday and Friday.

On his website, Shen has this hilarious promo poster ( featured right) which says it all!  Now thus far, Brad has been trying to get in the pants of Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) and Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), anyway he can!  And yes, that includes blackmail!  And then there is the major fact that Brad is the sidekick to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and is in cahoots with her in her scheme to pass of her baby as Dr. Patrick Drake’s (Jason Thompson)!

So what do you think will happen on the next few episodes involving Parry Shen as Brad?  What is this guys problem? Why is he such a prick? What happened to him that made him this way? Will we ever find out?

Let us know what you think of the character of Brad Cooper and if you are enjoying Parry’s performances!  Watch below some of his work from his first six appearances on GH, in case you need a refresher course!

lol, true, I’m still interested in what’s happening on GH, hoping things will change and the vets will be featured more. I’ll watch again if they are. That’s why I read the articles.

Sorry everything changes in life. They are still on and you are missing a truly great show. Recasts happen, characters move on. Robin is directing and just because you are unhappy with the situation things change.

So do I, but the actors who play Robert, Frisco, & Robin chose to leave GH. I say, let’s embrace those who want to be there! Nicholas is back, and with fun story.

I must of missed something. I thought Robin was still on the show, when found and took off; waiting for her to come back to Patrick maybe after a possible marriage? So she’s gone for good?

Well, “Robin” chose to leave….the verdict is still out on the read deal with “Robert,” and I think Jack Wagner has now made it abundantly clear he wanted “Frisco” to stay…..

There are always actors who are retiring or leaving to try something new and there will always be ‘newbies’ to fill the void. All of your ‘old’ favorites were once newbies….

Well MaddieHayes, I truly understand and watch once a month to see if it’s watchable. Yesterday was one of those days and it sucks. Could only watch about 5 mins before I turned the tv off – I’d rather boil water!

No he’s too gross to be likable. Even the villains are likable, Franco, Carly, etc.

First, as a gay man myself, I am applauded at Brad’s behavior! It is disgusting, however, no different from straight men who have engaged in the same type of activity! Parry is doing a great job at making us HATE Brad! This dude deserves an Emmy and hopefully they will kill his character or find a way to redeem him very soon!! 🙂

I love both Brad and Brit, they are out of the box exciting..

I feel for Parry Shen who plays Brad..
Some stupids will hate him for acting a very bad boy roll./character .
And- Kelly Thiebau is excellent as the Port Charles schemer bitch..
Felix is awesome!

I am looking forward to the explosions coming from Brad and Britt and there evil deeds!!!!!! 🙂

I want more Brad, even when it outrages the fans of Luke, Sonny and Jason.

Brad has only used blackmail to get what he wants.

He hasn’t raped, killed and/or used anyone, that he supposedly loves to get what he wants.

Parry is doing a great job. I can tell because when Brad is around I get mad even before he does something else that makes me mad all over 😉 I think I saw him in a local cable company commercial also.

Parry Shen. I like his name. being able to step outside the box with character exploits… and being the baddie… is what most actors clammor for… and emphatically state in this genre is the most fun to play…. and he does comedy as well. he’s a good actor… and I think he’s cute as a button to boot. What’s not to like… he’s refreshing and totally unexpected and that he’s gay…. even better…. it’s just reaching for more of the same… had he been “straight”. I certainly don’t entertain the “reviews” of other posters’ that he’s a Gay Predator… I… Read more »

UGH! What a disgusting promo! The entire storyline with this guy makes me want to vomit…how anyone can find “Brad’s” predatory nature entertaining is beyond me. He is one sick mister! And his not-so-clever moniker???? Me thinks it is simply a matter of “wish fulfillment” for the ptbs….we’ve all heard the gay rumors about the famous namesake!!!! Seriously, this perverse character has really pushed the boundaries of good taste and it is time for him to go, whether it be by killer mystery or a prison sentence, it makes no difference to me. ( And to think that a substantial… Read more »

Some people take the fictional character and their stories that are just entertainment way too seriously and they need to step back lol

Brad is an awesome soap character, the kind you want to slap!
When his scenes are on my attention is full on him..
He even at time makes me laugh!! (Parry Shen is a great actor, too)

Without the Brad’s and Britt’ s, soaps would not survive, I am loving them both!!

as I gay man I love Brad!! he is over the top.. believe me there are allot of gay man like him and if any gay man on this site say it is not so than you are living in a dream world. Why do most PC folks think gay man are all loving and thoughful. There are alot of gay Pigs out there and brad fits the bill perfectly.

Shay

The sooner the better! Yesterday’s sudden “bud moment” between Brad and Felix made me want to puke!!!! This entire plotline has been just too vile and sordid….first we have “Cooper the Gross Sexual Predator,” now he’s “Mr. Misunderstood,” just like that????? Maybe these two should just run off together….offscreen, of course!!!! And pleeeze take Sabrina with you….she gets more irritating as time goes on! She will never be a fan favorite, so I wish the ptb’s would just cut their losses and get rid of her asap!!!!!

the writers faltered big time… with the Brad fights back his fears… no one gets him… why would he tell Felix, it’s always been him that he’s attracted to. oye! puhlease…. now I really believe the bait and hook premise that the writers are gaping big holes for lack of fresh material. these characters, and not just brad… are languishing, with lack of … quality writing to further along any of the actors. having Brad tell Felix to ask Britt’s mother? just dropped the bomb on this story… not that any one’s waiting with baited breath the outcome…. altho… I… Read more »

I can’t help laughing at some of the things this guy says and does, like “once you go Brad, you never go back.” And him spraying breath spray in his mouth when he goes to visit Michael. The actor is doing a great job, he’s probably having fun playing this character, too.

I’m really enjoying the actor (Parry Shen) and the character of Brad! I hope he sticks around. I’m not finding much interesting with GH right now but I’m finding that I am drawn to his character and hope for more Brad! The actor does a great job of playing evil and sleazy as well as showing the characters vulnerabilities when it comes to Felix. This is one character that will keep me coming back to GH!!! A great villain character who will hopefully get some redemption in the future if given a chance to continue on the show!

I love the Brad Cooper character. He’s hilarious. He’s like a George Castansa.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
