Cyrus’s reign of terror on Port Charles is over. Jeff Kober, who plays the mobster is checking out of General Hospital as Cyrus is being sent to a prison in the Midwest.
Jeff Kober Checks Out of GH
The actor joined the show in 2020 as the show’s latest baddie. Kober instantly brought a charming gravitas to his role as Cyrus let everyone in town know that he was a force with which to be reckoned. Curiously, he took a liking to Mayor Laura Collins (Genie Francis).
Later, viewers found out that Cyrus and Martin (Michael E. Knight) were not only brothers but they — and Laura — shared the same father, Gordon Grey. Cyrus desperately wanted Laura’s acceptance and that proved to be one of his greater vulnerabilities. He was also deeply concerned over the safety and whereabouts of his mother Florence (Annie Abbott).
Despite these vulnerabilities, Cyrus continued to wield an iron fist as he tried to gain control of the mob scene in Port Charles. He used Julian (Will deVry) to blow up the Floating Rib. Laura’s daughter Lulu (Emme Rylan) became injured in the explosion that killed poor Dustin (Mark Lawson) and Dev (Ashton Arbab). Cyrus also was responsible for Sasha’s (Sofia Mattsson) near-fatal drug overdose and he even tried to off her himself.
The gangster went too far when, after being shot by Jason (Steve Burton), he broke into Portia’s (Brook Kerr) house and took both her and Trina (Sydney Mikayla) hostage. Laura agreed to take their place, but Cyrus wasn’t going to let his feelings for his half-sister change how he felt about going to jail.
Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) shot Cyrus, sending him to General Hospital. Handcuffed to his bed, Cyrus shared some farewell scenes with Carly (Laura Wright), Jordan, and now, Laura (Genie Francis). We definitely haven’t seen the last of the Kober. The actor is nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama Series, set to air on Friday, June 25 on CBS at 8 p.m.
Also, GH is known for bringing its characters — heroes and villains — back frequently. Francis has gone on the record saying she enjoys working with Kober. Odds are, we’ll see Cyrus again. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
