Thaao Penghlis (1981; January 30, 2014 - present)
Current and Past Occupation
Current: Director of the World Security Bureau
Victor Cassadine first appeared in 1981 when he was helping his brothers Mikkos Cassadine and Anthony Cassadine in their attempt to take over the world. Together, they stole the infamous Ice Princess diamond and used it to create a weather machine to freeze out Port Charles. When Victor's girlfriend, actress Tiffany Hill, learned of his plans, she turned on him and helped Robert Scorpio and Luke and Laura Spencer take him and his brothers down.
Victor went to prison and was not heard from again until he returned to Port Charles in 2014. Newly instated as the head of the WSB, he was able to get criminal immunity for Dr. Liesl Obrecht in exchange for information she gave Victor. She was named the General Hospital chief of staff. It soon became clear that Victor was in love with Liesl, and worked hard to woo her.
But Victor was really in town to convince Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake to return with him to Cassadine Island in Greece, where Helena Cassadine and Stavros Cassadine, both thought dead at the hands of Luke and Laura, were actually alive and in a state of cryogenically frozen suspended animation. Victor told Robin that her friend, Jason Morgan, was also alive and frozen with them. If Robin came with him to save Stavros and Helena, she could save Jason too. This was the information Liesl exchanged to Victor for her freedom.
