Drew Cheetwood

Drew Cheetwood, who played Milo Giambetti from 2016-2020 revealed that he’s back taping an episode that will air late in March. The episode is the one that will pay tribute to Sonja Eddy (Epiphany). 

Cheeetwood wrote on Instagram, “Almost 20 years ago I taped my first episode of General Hospital. I was almost 20 and now I’m almost 40. 
After filming yesterday it really hit me how grateful I am for all the opportunity this show has afforded me. I worked with my real life brother playing brothers on the show for 10+ years. I’ve worked with actors on the show I only dreamed of when I was a kid just dreaming in Ohio.
I got to see such craftsmanship and professionalism behind the scenes…production, writing, camera, casting, props and the list goes on. It molded everything I do to market homes in real estate today. This show is literally how I met my wife and now why we have our 3 beautiful girls. It doesn’t get any bigger than that for me
Yesterday’s episode was a tough one to film. We lost an amazing human being in December unexpectedly. Sonya Eddy lit this world up with an incredible light. She was so many beautiful things to so many people. We’ll miss her greatly.
Yesterday, I was asked to help pay tribute to that light. After all the show has given me, it was such an honor to give back in this way.
Life is fragile and man, it is moving pretty quick. That’s not to stress though. Just means we need to hold the people we love and care about closer. Pick up the phone and make that call.
Get to it today. Make amends where you can. Pray. Often. I’m saying so much of this to myself too…just so you know.
May we try and fill more people with love, laughter & light…the same as Sonya did for me and so many others 🙏”.

Marcus Coloma Out

Marcus Coloma exits General Hospital as Nikolas Cassadine.

There is no word on his last airdate or who will be taking over the role for him though Adam Huss (seen below) has been filling in for the actor on and off for several episodes this year. Currently, there is no plan to recast him, though we believe it is possible Huss might be briefly returning in Nikolas’ last scenes since Coloma allegedly refused to return for those. 

In an Instagram video, Coloma shared, “It’s hard to even say it.  I get so sad when I think about it. Look, I don’t know what I can or can’t say other than what an incredible ride. There is such a family feel at General Hospital, which I felt so blessed to be a part of. And I’ve said this a million times, the fans are the best fans in the entire world. And I think a lot of that is just because you guys have been watching for such a long time. So, thank you for including me, thanks for the love, happy holidays. You guys, Maurice said he’s gonna change his number on me but I know where he lives. I know where Kin Shriner lives. We’re still gonna film things. Much love.”

Michael Blake Kruse Exits

Michael Blake Kruse made an exit in a final way when Rory Cabrera died after being the latest victim of the Hook Killer.

His last airdate was December 15.

rory dying GH recaps SoapsSpoilers


The actor stated on an Instagram post, “Many thanks to everyone who has sent me supportive messages in light of Rory Cabrera leaving the GH canvas. I enjoyed playing the character and valued his essence. Yes, he was unsophisticated and naive but at least he was genuine. In particular with Trina, he was always sincere and had her best interests at heart. That has to count for something Sprina fans. Rory was a mediocre cop at best, but Port Charles isn’t the easiest town to police. He was also equipped with a hostler from the 70s, no radio, and no bulletproof vest. Above all, I had the pleasure of working with some incredible people and have a newfound respect for everyone involved with daytime TV. It’s easy to critique but not easy to create. All of my love and appreciation to the fans who were supportive along the way.”
