Updated August 4: ABC Soaps in Depth is reporting that at the recent General Hospital Fan Club event, William deVry told fans that a contract with the show still has yet to be reached. Though his last tape date was June 30, the actor stated that Julian’s exit would air open-ended and that he would love to return at some point. Stay tuned.
Back on July 3, we reported that "General Hospital" was on a three week hiatus, and before the studio closed down on June 30, William deVry and the show had failed to negotiate a new contract for the star. According to Soap Opera Digest, deVry may have taped his final scenes as Julian Jerome last week. deVry joined "GH" in July of 2013, and together with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) became part of the popular couple Julexis. For weeks fans have taken to social media urging "GH" and Executive Producer Frank Valentini to re-sign deVry and keep him on the show.
