It looks like Julian’s bad deed tampering with Brad’s brakes may really do the trick this week as Parry Shen has seemingly confirmed his General Hospital exit using an Avengers trick to do it.
Parry Shen Leaving GH?
OK, it’s not quite a trick, but when SoapDirt.com speculated Shen is out after Twitter rumors surfaced on Sunday, the actor took to Facebook to share the article and quote actor Chris Evans directly after Avengers: Endgame premiered.
“Well, it certainly feels like I should be paraphrasing Chris Evans’ Endgame tweet, doesn’t it? So, with that said…
“‘Playing this role over the last (almost) 7 years, has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.'”
The comments that ensued after that FB post came from saddened fans who couldn’t believe Port Charles and General Hospital would be losing Brad after all these years and Shen didn’t deny it.
For the past year, Shen’s Brad has been keeping the biggest secret of all from husband, Lucas — that the baby they adopted died at just a few hours old before Lucas (Ryan Carnes) could meet him. The baby they have been raising is really Lucas’ grand-nephew, Jonah, son of Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier).
Julian (William deVry) has been Brad’s confidante through the entire thing but only learned who Wiley really was a few months ago. Since then, the two have been frenemies, but now former mobster Julian has gone back to his old ways as he can’t stand Brad anymore. On Friday, we saw him rig Brad’s brakes to fail and that might be the end of Shen in Port Charles.
While GH has not confirmed the exit or what will happen to Brad, it does seem likely the character will die, burying the Wiley secret with him. Of course, he’s not the only one who knows the secret. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
