Updated September 18: Soaps.com readers can expect to see All My Children actor Michael E. Knight on General Hospital beginning Monday September 30. Entertainment Weekly has learned that Knight started filming General Hospital scenes on Tuesday September 10 but will not play his Pine Valley character, Tad Martin – rather one who will get involved in all kinds of shenanigans and dresses in business attire. Head writer Chris Van Etten shared, “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.” Look for Knight’s character to cross paths with James Patrick Stuart (Valentine Cassadine).
