It’s been less than a week since Bryan Craig confirmed his General Hospital departure, but a new casting call makes it sound like the show might be ready to replace him ASAP.
Craig is set to last air in November, and with Morgan being such a pivotal character, it makes sense to get another actor in the role quick.
According to Soap Opera Digest, GH sent out a casting call for a character who is a: “20 to 25 years old, Caucasian male. He is brooding and intense. He is complicated and troubled. Underneath his edge he is a soulful young man trying to figure things out.”
That sounds like the perfect description of Morgan to us. GH specifies that whoever they cast would begin taping in late October, which works perfectly with the timing of Craig’s departure.
Craig has played Morgan since 2013 and won an Emmy for Outstanding Younger Leading Actor this past May.
