When a character and actor become so endeared to fans, a soap usually lets a little tie go by before “replacing” him. And while Josh Swickard is not actually the new Nathan, to Dante he is, and that might not sit very well with him for a while on General Hospital (GH).
But, the show and life must go on, and in a police department, you can’t be down a detective so Josh Swickard is now making GH his home as Detective Harrison Chase, a by-the-books cop who made his first mistake by arresting and not wanting to release Dante’s Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather.
As Detective Chase learns his way around PC, let’s learn a little more about the actor who plays him.
Swickard is a former model who thrilled teens and tweens alike on the Disney Channel show, Liv and Maddie from 2015-2016. He also appeared on KC Undercover and describes himself as a motorcycle enthusiast. In addition, he’s quite the devoted uncle as evidenced from his Instagram account.
Of course, we want to learn more about Detective Chase, as well. We do know he’s a Red Sox fan and not a Yankees fan like Nathan and Dante, which doesn’t sit well with Dante. And, anyone who knows anything about baseball and Babe Ruth can tell you why.
Perhaps we’ll learn he’s related to a character we already know or maybe he’ll get a love interest in town–but certainly not Maxie considering she is so not ready for that yet.
Will Dante and Chase become as close as Dante and Nathan were? Is he the new cop to watch? Time will tell, but we know we’re intrigued.

This past month I have been filming a fun rodeo movie, and today is the final day on set. These were some of the best weeks of my life, and I feel so incredibly blessed and humbled by the experience. Looking forward to the next chapter but @esxentertainment will always be family. Love you guys. #ropedmovie
