Trying to get to the bottom of when Valentin will finally appear on GH, Soaps.com asked his portrayer for the scoop. Unfortunately Borlenghi couldn’t give us too much info, as he said, “I can’t comment at this time on when Valentin will rear his evil head. I have not begun taping yet, but would believe that I will show up sometime not too long after Helena. That is only speculative, of course.”

To find out when Helena and Valentin will appear in Port Charles, keep an eye on our Comings and Goings section.

Borlenghi will first appear as Valentin on October 14 with the last name of Cassadine!
