Details on Tyler Christopher, Roger Howarth, and Kirsten Storms’ fates on ‘General Hospital’ have been revealed.
Some big casting changes have been rumored to be taking place on General Hospital, though fans shouldn’t be too worried just yet that three major characters are either being written off or their actors replaced permanently.
Roger Howarth, Tyler Christopher and Kirsten Storms all have been at the epicenter of casting news and rumors lately, and while Christopher and Stroms’ exits have been confirmed, none are expected to be gone on a permanent basis.
Daytime Confidential reported that Christopher would be temporarily replaced by Nick Stabile, after Christopher reportedly asked for time off due to personal reasons.
“Soooo you know how sometimes people like to get our loyal GH fans all fired up over nothing? That sadly happened earlier today in regard to the magnificent and talented Roger Howarth,” he said in a statement.
“For some reason a certain blogger took a blind item which was posted and fooled everyon into believing it was Roger and GH related. I’m happy to confirm their ‘sources’ perhaps thought today was April Fools Day and decided to completely make up the story without ever reaching out to ABC to ask the question…That truth is that blind item…had absolutely nothing to do with GH or Mr, Howarth.”
No reason was initially given, though Storms has since posted on Facebook to confirm it is only temporary and is due to a personal health-related issue.
“Second, yes I am taking a little break from work due to some skin issues I’ve been having. My dr’s say my breakouts are due to stress, but shouldn’t take too long to get under control. However, it was becoming too difficult for GH to cover up. And we all know in this biz appearance is important. In the meantime I look forward to seeing Molly on screen as I take the next few weeks to heal. Again-thanks for the love and you will see me again in no time!”.
