Many of us watching General Hospital this week fully expected Ava’s psychic not to be able to contact Nikolas Cassadine and gave a sigh of relief when she couldn’t — because in our heart of hearts, no one believes he’s really dead. But does that mean the character is making a comeback — with Tyler Christopher in the role?
That’s the question that has had Soap Twitter buzzing like crazy. After all, the actor is no longer under contract to Days of Our Lives, where he was playing Stefan O. DiMera, so that means he might be available to resume the role of Laura’s (Genie Francis) oldest son, but is it happening?
Well, the rumors made it all the way to the actor, who no longer lives in Los Angeles and has set up a new business for himself. Christopher has always made it clear that he adores his fans, so he answered the question as plainly as he could by posting his full response to his followers on Twitter.
“You are all very sweet to be so loyal as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”
So there you go! Either the actor is playing it very cool so as not to tip off his return or he hasn’t been approached, but is willing to return if things can be worked out. Obviously, we are all hoping we see him in Port Charles again. Guess we’ll have to stay tuned to find out.
