Introducing ‘Paparazzo Felty’ on General Hospital.
Brian Norris was introduced in the April 27 episode of General Hospital as Paparazzo Felty, a photographer who made it his business to snap some very candid pictures of Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson), the successful new face of “Deception”.
Though he was able to capture Sasha doing drugs, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) stole his camera and kept the memory card.
Still, persistent and aggressive on the job, Felty followed their car as the left their party and had a hand in causing the accident that left Harmony (Inga Cadranel) run down.
About joining GH, Norris said, “It’s such a family on that show, they really made me feel welcome from my first day. Also, there was a real sense of play throughout and I love the fast-paced nature. It feels like going back to theatre which I missed very much.”
Viewers will recognize Norris from his roles on AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, DirecTV’s, Full Circle. His notable film and TV credits also include roles on Masters of Sex, Longmire, iZombie, Castle, Mad Men, Awake, Community, Lie to Me, and A Thousand Words.
