General Hospital C&G News
Are any of your favorite performers from yesteryear returning to the daytime drama, this week, or in the not too far off future? Have any new actors or actresses been cast on the show in contract, recurring, or day player roles? Are any well-remembered or beloved stars from other soaps, past or present, about to join the General Hospital fold in surprise new parts?
Here’s the latest casting news from the ABC soap.
The week of July 26, 2021
Lead actress Kirsten Storms has exited the Port Charles canvas as Maxie Jones, but don’t worry, the move is only temporary. The storyline twist was dictated by the actress’s recent brain surgery, which she underwent in June. Expect Maxie to remain out of town, while Storms recovers and recuperates at home.
That was David Leeshock playing David Hopkins, the helicopter pilot who Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) questioned about Peter August (Wes Ramsey) in a New York City bar. The actor’s two-day stint wrapped up last week.
