Blakemore previously taped additional scenes that will keep Shawn on the canvas for a few more weeks.

  1. awe bummer I'm going to miss Shawn - What's next for Mr. Blakemore

    1. same, hate to see him go, he is actually one of my favorites on the show

  2. Always sad to see a good actor leave GH. There doesn't seem to be and bad feelings about his departure so I wonder if he has another gig lined up or if he's just ready to try some other things. Best of luck to him!

  3. Shocked to hear that Sean is leaving - totally unexpected !!! He's been. Great addition to GH , I'm really sorry to see him go !! I wish him the best of luck in what ever he chooses to do next
