Who’s leaving General Hospital [SPOILERS]
It’s hard to say goodbye to characters we know and love, but after dual roles on both General Hospital and Days Of Our Lives, Wally Kurth has recently signed a contract with Days, which means he will no longer be allowed to do both shows. And unfortunately for GH fans, that means Ned Quartermaine will be leaving!
His recent chemistry with Bensonhurt-born Olivia Falconieri has been undeniable, and it’s too bad we won’t get to see this couple realize their full potential. However, it’s not over yet.. next week he will confess his feelings for her, so we have that to look forward to!
General Hospital’s loss is definitely Days Of Our Lives’ gain… for me, Ned has been the lone sane voice in the wackiness that is the Quartermaine family, and I will really miss those dimples and devilish smile.
Another surprising exit will be Duke Lavery, who made a very unexpected return to the show after more than a twenty-year absence. Ian Buchanan resumed his iconic role three years ago, first as Cesar Faison in a Duke mask, and then finally coming back as his old self, Anna’s lost love. He has since gone on to become an important figure in the Corinthos Crime Family, and with the mob war escalating, perhaps Duke will finally be caught in the crossfire. He certainly does have a very long history with the Jeromes…
Here is one more look at Ned and Lois.. a fun trip down memory lane!
