General HospitalComings & Goings
For those wondering about the handsome stranger who rescued Sonny in the woods on General Hospital, that was One Life to Live actor Mikey Jerome as Eddie!
Fans may recall that Jerome was the season three winner of the reality series I Wanna Be a Soap Star, which landed him his One Life to Live role in 2006. The actor played Llanview’s Ted Osbourne, Vincent Jones’ sidekick who helped to rig Cristian Vega’s boxing match. Though Vincent changed his mind and tried to stop the match, Ted wanted to make a quick buck but ended up getting a confession beaten out of him by Cristian, which set him on a path of revenge against Vincent.
Jerome shared a behind the scenes photo on Instagram while on the General Hospital set and expressed wanting to return one day. “If you can send messages to the [show’s] Instagram site. Or email General Hospital at ABC… It could really help my chances of a return.”
He went on to post a photo on Facebook from the January 12 episode and stated, “If you have Twitter, get on the General Hospital page and ask for more of Eddie. Was so cool acting all day w/a Soap Icon. #sonny #mauricebernard.”
