We Love Soaps was surprised to learn today that Drew Garrett will no longer be appearing on ABC's GENERAL HOSPITAL. As Michael Corinthos, the brain damaged gun-shot survivor of Carly Jax and Sonny Corinthos (and biological son of A.J. Quartermaine), Garrett made a strong impact in his daytime debut upon viewers and critics alike. In his eleven months on the show he has been able to effectively portray Michael's trauma and inner conflict of growing up in a mob-centered family environment, and how that angst led up to perpetrating Claudia's murder.
Michael will be portrayed by Chad Duell starting on April 20.
What do you think about this change? Was it wise to recast so soon, or would GH have been wiser to wait before casting a replacement? Let us know what you think!
