A former All My Children star is checking into General Hospital, while a popular leading man exits in a most unusual way. And the DAYS cast shakeup continues. Here’s everything you missed in the daytime world –with links, in the Soap Hub soap opera news wrap.
New Role for Knight

Billy Miller’s GH alter-ego Drew Cane slipped out of Port Charles to return stolen money to Afghanistan and to find Andre Maddox. But is that really the last we’ve seen of the popular actor? If Peter’s phone call meant anything, then probably.
It seems like another major cast member is leaving Days of Our Lives every month. The question is, how will all the exits affect the show? While some performers aren’t on contract at all.
Haley Erin has been gone but not forgotten as GH’s Kiki Jerome. So it was great to see her back, even as a spirit or a figment of Ava’s imagination. GH left it to the audience to decide what was really happening.
Robin Strasser hasn’t even started airing yet as DAYS’ new Vivian — she debuts in September. But she’s already praising the show’s cast. She also wants fans to know she is not the one who leaked word on her temporary take over as Vivian.

Bryan Craig, remembered as GH’s Morgan, was recently reunited with one of his former soap co-stars — well, actually two — to his new primetime show, Grand Hotel. Think a fellow Corinthos family member whose paternity the audience has questioned for years.
Vinessa Antoine (ex-Jordan, GH), who’s shooting the second season of her Canadian hit series, Diggstown, welcomed a Port Charles star to her show, too. It’s someone who works at soap’s hospital, but is it a nurse or a doctor?
