Well, soap fans, we are in for another temporary recast on General Hospital, which has happened a lot this past year with various stars. In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest it’s being reported that this time, Johnny Wactor will be leaving the ABC soap for a few episodes as Brando.

However, the actor that will be stepping in for Wactor is no stranger to daytime and has turned up on CBS’ As the World Turns and Guiding Light, as well as on the popular series Yellowstone. Though there are no exact dates as of yet, keep an eye out for Brad Schmidt in Port Charles as Sasha’s husband.

As we all know, Brando and Sasha have had more than their share of heartache as of late, given the devastating decision they had to make to remove their newborn son Liam from life support. Though the couple tied the knot in Canada, Sasha turned to pills to deal with the loss and now her secret is at risk of being revealed, considering a reporter saw her popping some meds but even scarier, Brando’s mother Gladys knows the truth.

Gladys is claiming to want to help Sasha but we’ve seen just how much she despised the idea that her son had gotten married so it would be in Sasha’s best interest to tell her husband the truth before his mother does.

Stay tuned for Schmidt’s appearance and before you go, join us as we take a moment to look back through a tribute photo gallery filled with some of the beloved soap stars we’ve lost just in the first half of 2022.
