Actually Leaving
General Hospital?
Chad Duell has been playing Michael Corinthos on the popular and long-lived ABC daytime drama "General Hospital" since 2010. Michael is front and center on the show, so fans were stunned when they tuned in to see that Robert Adamson was suddenly portraying Michael.
Fans who were concerned that Duell had left "General Hospital" behind. However, the actor confirmed that his absence would be temporary, tweeting, "I'm good.. I'll be back filming next week. Was covid related." The actor even added a smiley face for an extra measure of reassurance.
Adamson took to his own Instagram to thank "General Hospital" for choosing him to come in as a temporary emergency recast. In his post, he noted, "Huge shoes, brother. I was exhausted. Had no idea what the hell I was talking about, but we got the job done."
