In a surprise move this week Ted King announced on his website that he has decided to leave his role of Lorenzo Alcazar on General Hospital. “I’m leaving the show simply because it’s time. I need to stretch as an actor. I need to take on a new role,” King tells his fans. He goes on say, “I have spent four and a half glorious years of my life on the show and it has been time well spent.�
He doesn’t say when his last air date will be, or what will become of Sonny’s nemesis (and Skye’s newfound love!), but he does tells fans that many discussions took place between himself and the powers that be at ABC. “Scenarios have been discussed that would keep me from leaving or moving to other ABC shows but at this time I’m not interested in having Lorenzo Alcazar go anywhere else.” In the letter, he discusses Lorenzo’s complexities and the romantic soul that he started out with when he first came to Port Charles. He adds that “�the role has simply become too villainous.”
