After all these years, viewers know quite a bit about Nikolas Cassadine, as he’s been a PC character since the 1990s. But what about his portrayer Marcus Coloma? The actor recently sat down with General Hospital co-stars Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson to answer the duo’s 7 Questions segment.
Getting To Know Marcus Coloma
Burton, who plays Jason, and Anderson, who plays Spinelli, virtually “grilled” the relative GH newcomer with a series of queries they posed to learn more about GH’s Nikolas. Here are some of the topics the trio covered:
What has been the most challenging part of being a recast?
“Honestly, I think that Tyler Christopher was amazing [in the role]…He was fantastic and did his own thing. [I’m] trying to embrace the character and not have his face in my head all the time.”
Who is your favorite Disney prince (as Nikolas is a prince)?
“That’s a good question. Honestly, I feel like one of my first crushes was on Ariel the Little Mermaid. Aladdin is a go-getter.”
Did you like Chihuahuas more or less after shooting Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2?
“I was more of a fan after shooting that movie. The funny thing is…I can’t say the word. They had to phonetically spell [Chihuahua] out for me?”
What is YOUR favorite movie sequel?
“I was just watching Die Hard 2. I started watching Moonlighting because Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd have such an element. It’s like Nikolas and Ava (Maura West). You can see Bruce Willis’s audition online. It’s so amazing. That got me into Die Hard. I guess Lethal Weapon is the one I go back to. I just love it.”
