109 December 12th, 2013 Bradford Anderson and Emily Wilson Exiting General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

The time has come to say goodbye to General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson, who had an amazing seven-year run as fan favorite Damian Spinelli, as well as Emily Wilson who joined the ABC soap in September 2012 as Ellie Trout.  In story, the duo leave Port Charles for Portland next week!  And with that, Bradford and Emily will be off the ABC soap opera.

The news broke exclusively in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, but confirmed today by Anderson himself via his Twitter account when he stated to all of his followers and legions of fans:  “Thanks everyone for the well wishes! I’m excited for what’s ahead but am so grateful for these amazing 7 yrs, and for all of you!”

Bradford had elected to exit the GH canvas, after earlier this year wanting to go to recurring status! As for Wilson, she had opted to be recurring as well.    According to SOD, Anderson decided to stay with the show until the Maxie/Spinelli/Dante/Lulu custody story of baby Connie has concluded.   Make sure to get this week’s Soap Opera Digest for GH’s head writer, Ron Carlivati’s thoughts on losing Bradford and Emily, as Spinelli and Ellie!

So, are you sad to hear Bradford and Emily are leaving General Hospital?  Comment below!

    I loved Emily Wilson! Will miss her a lot.

    Sadly, I have a feeling Bradford Anderson will pop up again on “Young and the Restless” :(

    Love Bradford and Spinelli, One of the most unique and delighful characters. I will miss himi Come back again. PLEASE do not go to Y&R. I think it is disrespectful to go to Y&R after appearing on GH for 7 years.

    Elaine replied

    I can’t believe the characters I see on Y&R and B&B from the soaps I have watched over the years, OLTL, AMC, and GH. I have never watched either of the above soaps, but I am thinking if I want to see these actors again I may have to. I loved Spinelli.

    heather replied

    It seems like all the favorites are leaving GH. Will really miss Spinelli and hope he comes back with Maxie. They are finally clicking. And my main reason for watching. All the mob stuff getting stupid. Still looking for the return of Jason!

    I agree, I love Spinelli, loved his querkness and comedy. Getting tired of the mob stuff. Spinelli was like the character Diane, a breath of fresh air!

    Spinelli is the most unique character on daytime TV and certainly one of the most fun. This is a huge loss for GH.

    Yes. I liked them both. He served as a moral compass for Maxie. What’s she going to do?

  7. David Evan Smith says:

    I figured that was going to be the case, with them both being recurring. This will allow a destination for Maxie when Storms needs to exit on maternity leave.

    Nikolas already replaced Spinelli in the opening credits on Wednesday anyway.

    Loved and admired Bradford Anderson’s work, but the character has always been rather limited for the canvas.

    I have to agree with you…Spin drove me crazy with all his gibberish and I FF’d many of his scenes.
    Then they bring on Ellie, who was OK, but she used modified “spinelli-speak” too, so their scenes together made me twitchy.
    This is a very fitting way to write them off and opens the door for the Kirsten maternity leave S/L.

    I fast forwarded all Spinelli’s scenes also. Won’t miss him at all.

    I LOVE SPINELLI!!! @ Spencer, SZima and Buffy the congratulator slayer you all didn’t understand Spinelli grammar because y’all not educated enough DUH!!! Y’all need to consider furthering your education. @ Buffy Just because a person or Character is more brighter than you don’t HATE congratulate you congratulator slayer!!!

    I think the absence of Spinelli will be a huge hole in the storyline. I will truly miss Bradford. While I have respect for Ms Wilson as an actress, I never really got into her character. I surely hope somehow Maxie ends up with her baby….and I hope that Bradford considers coming back after he has a few adventures. I’ll actually miss him way more than I did Steve Burton/Jason.

    Im sure at least Spinelli might eventually come back…the baby story really isnt finished…Maxi in 6 months is supposed to go back to court…Spin should be back for that! GH does need some trimming but these are the wrong two…but maybe they both will return!!! Characters have been off for long periods before!!!

    ohh no!! I love that guy, not replacable!
    It was his choice to leave so I assume he has something new and exciting awaiting him!
    I will miss Spin!!!!
    Well, actors can not be just soap actors all their lives,
    people need change, to explore and grow!

    Best of everything for you, Bradford Anderson..

    Hate it…Spinelli is the epitome of loyalty, laughter and love. The “jackal” of all good…comic relief yet poignant…and although an non realistic character somehow he was the most “real” person on the canvas. Another, albeit fictional….loss.

    I am going to miss Spinelli so much. He has grown up so much in the last couple of years and I guess I won’t get my Spixie. :(

    Spinelli lost so much of what made him that unique, special and interesting character back in 2007 when he was vying for fair Lulu’s attention. From 2006 until about March of 2007, listening to this spunky, quick witted, pop culture referencing, beanie wearing computer nerd was more fun than watching the show itself. Bradford is a great actor, but the character lost a lot of what made him entertaining for me very early on during his tenure. I know writers and producers in tv in general are usually very set on “evolving” and “maturing” characters, even though it’s a high risk when the character established is already so popular as it is. But it just didn’t work for me with Spinelli’s character. I never took him for the romantic, magnanimous, sensitive Cyrano type. I always preferred the incarnation they brought him on the show as.

    I am unfamiliar with Emily’s work on the show as I’ve just started watching again.

    Never cared for Spixie in all my time watching. People dubbed them a supercouple, but I never saw it. From what I remember in 2008-2009 when Spixie were together, or teasing to be together, I wanted to rip out my hair. Actually, I wanted to rip out Maxie’s hair, and not because of the style because if memory serves it wasn’t so bad then. It dumbed down her character so much, and again, was all trying to grow the character from selfish to selfless. No, I preferred my Maxie stirring up trouble and being a sassy truth-sayer. Spinelli’s character was changing more too as a result of the pairing, more in the direction I hated. And together, they lit as much fire as two wet matches. I see no more chemistry and have developed no more interest in them since my return to GH a few months ago. No loss for me whatsoever.

    Frankly, Bradford can go far if he really goes for it. He has talent to spare. It’s a loss for the show, for sure, but I’m sure if there was a way to keep him, FV would have held onto him. I think this is a good decision for him, ultimately. Wishing him luck.

    Well said, Jules! I also loved Spinelli’s intellect and unique perspectives on life….not to mention his fabulous vocabulary and spot-on monikers for everyone with whom he came into contact! His role as the ” strange outsider looking in” made him one of the most interesting and arcane soap characters ever, although the effort to “mainstream” him sadly served to homogenize his once very individualized manner. Sorry to see him go, but hope he will be back one day…I enjoyed him with Maxie because of the opposites-attract theme, but he and Ellie as “twin geeks” was always a bit much to take. While I applaud the effort to start thinning out the huge cast, there were certainly far more useless people who could have been disposed of first….need I even name the character at the top of my list???? (And after “her,” Scotty and Lucy…their shtick is so tiring I turned off the show the other day….)

    My sister from another mister! I’m right there with you.

    rebecca1 replied

    Shay, they didn’t get rid of Bradford. He wanted to leave…they even offered him recurring but he turned it down.

    Shay replied

    @rebecca1….Understood…I chose my words poorly in giving the impression that I thought BA had been let go. I do realize it was his decision to leave. I was speaking strictly from the perspective of numerous GH characters that should be shown the door, far more so deservedly than the awesome Spinelli, and yes, even Ellie. (I don’t believe EW necessarily asked to depart, although she, too, was on recurring status.) While I wasn’t her biggest fan, I thought she brought a unique personality to the show, did a fine job and certainly had more of a reason to exist in PC than many others who are just dragging down the show with their presence. That’s all I was saying, but thank you for the clarification!!!! As you pointed out, Spinelli’s very original qualities made him an endearing guy. He will be missed! I do hope we see him again one day…..

    Shay replied

    Hey there, “bro!” LOL….You are fast becoming one of my most favorite Canadians of all time (along with Rob Ford and Darwin the IKEA Monkey!) Not necessarily in that order though….you definitely top RF, but it’s a toss up between Darwin and you…that persnickety primate really could rock those fashions his “mama” bought him!!!!! Toooo cute! (However, he’s looking soooo “naked” these days….awww poor thing!) ; )

    Reply

    Jules replied

    HAHA! I’m honoUred ;) .

    For what it’s worth, Darwin may not be rocking the latest in winter fashions anymore, but last I heard he was doing well. I’d have ranked him before me too :D .

    Shay replied

    So glad you considered that ranking an honoUr (in the best British sense!) Jules! Yes, sadly Darwin has been stripped of his high fashion wardrobe (literally…) Just read an update on him last week, and he now goes “au naturel” in his lonely cage for one. Since he was not brought up with own kind, he knows not how to mingle with them, hence he must be kept separate from the rest of the population. Alas, his only current “accessory” is his omnipresent stuffed “Curious George” as BFF…poor little guy! Of course, he never should have been out amongst the public in the first place, but he looked to have greatly enjoyed his brief taste of freedom bedecked in the latest finery…still roaring over that too-big sherpa coat he was wearing when he was initially apprehended. Certainly not one of the sights one would have expected to find at IKEA! LOL…..

    Very sad to see Bradford Anderson leave, as I enjoyed his portrayal of Spinelli very muh. I also hoped that in six months, he and Maxie would be able to find their way back to each other, with their daughter. Together they were comedic, yet shared a special bond. I also enjoyed Spinelli’s interaction with all other characters. I respect an actor’s decision to do what is best for themselves, so I wish both he and Emily Wilson well in their future endeavors, but I will sorely miss Bradford/Spinelli.

    First it was Steve, Julie, Brandon, Genie, Kelly S now Bradford and Emily. I am sad to see Bradford go. Loved his quirky portrayal of Spinelli. Spinelli had the best nicknames for the characters on the show. Bradford kicked butt in custody battle & reveal of baby. Bradford deserves an emmy for this yrs work. All of my fav actors from the show are leaving. I dont understand why the writers gave Spinelli custody of the baby when they knew Bradford was leaving the show. Why not just give custody to Maxie or let dante & lulu keep the baby. Maxie going to lose her one true love. Who are the writers going to pair Maxie with now. I hope Kirsten Storms stays on the show. But I have feeling in time Kirsten will leave too.

    I am sad BA chose to leave~ GH will not be the same without him. They will have to revisit the baby story. Whatever happened to Spin and Sam’s PI business? Also Port Chuck ( Band ) is coming to an end. Wonder what BA will be up to. I hope I don’t see him on another soap ( YnR ). I know from reading that him and Steve Burton are doing a few things the first of the yr. Maybe he is going into a business owned by SB, they are great friends. Guess I will just have to wait and see.

    That is such sad news for GH :( I have loved the character of Spinelli since day one and have recently enjoyed him being paired with Ellie. I hope they don’t try to replace his character with anyone even remotely close to resembling him because there is no one like Spinelli and Bradford has truly made him one of a kind.
    I wish them both lots of luck in their future endeavors.

    Will miss Bradford and Emily on GH! I loved their unusual (for soaps) characters and they were so cute together. Bradford especially blew me away during the Connie custody episodes, erasing any doubt about his versatility as an actor. Having Damian and Ellie move away plants a nice little seed for the future– maybe a young girl will come to town in later years looking for her real mother– Maxie!

    I am going to miss Spinelli more so then anyone that has played on there except for Jason. These two actors were tops in my book and there can never be a replacement actor for them. Bradford Anderson said he would stay on till the storyline with Maxie was concluded and then …boom he’s leaving immediately. That says he was fired.
    What happened to the words Spinelli spoke to Maxie saying he loved her and Maxie returning that spoken word of love to Spinelli?? I totally hate how this is ending with them. How is this boggled up mess going to continue? My interest in the whole storyline has passed, am not interested in any of it now. How can you keep interested fans watching when you continue pulling the rug out from under our feet???

    I can’t believe Bradford is leaving, his character is one of the best on the show, I never liked Emily Wilson’s character she was a nothing that just took up space. Her character should have been killed off after the accident. Now what will they do about the baby she should come back in six months to be with her mother hope the writers will make that happen and not forget all about her.

    I will definitely miss Bradford Anderson as Spinelli. He was one of my favorites. I am glad to read that he chose to leave and it wasn’t the wrtiers writing him out for storyline reasons.

    And you know he started out in a role that was only supposed to be on for 2 episodes and that turned into 7 yeras. What an amazing run. I wish him well in his future plans. And I am sure someday he will be back even if just for a short term stint.

    That’s the way the cookie crumbles ….. Y&R has lost Catherine, Ashley and Phyllis. GH is losing some characters too. However, GH has so many great characters, so they have some head room. I wish them well but if Bradford goes to Y&R, I will have to stop watching it for awhile. I’m sorry but the Steve Burton character is such a snore, I can’t even remember his name. He was new to the show, but he is on all the time like they did with the Maura West character. You have to bring in new characters slowly to make us care about them. Sigh!

    I am so so sad to see them go, especially Spinelli, I think a Maxie and Spinelli union would be great for GH! I hate to see established characters leave. But I am grateful that GH is still on especially after losing OLTL and AMC, still miss my ABC soaps like crazy!

    Immensely sad to see him go. I wasn’t a big fan of Ellie. Always hoped Spinelli & Maxie would find there way back to each other. GH doesn’t interest me much any more. And Morgan………………..they could have done better.

    So sad to see Spinelli going from the GH storyline – he has been a favorite character of mine since he began on the show. It just won’t be the same without him . C’mon – 7 years isn’t enough!! Come back!!!! Maxie needs you!

    Not a fan of Ellie but GH will not be the same without Spinelli . He needs to come back with the baby and without Ellie. Maxie is a much better story line.

    I think it’s unfair to take out Spinelli and the baby. They need to have him back and get him and Maxie back together as a family. It really is unfair to take him out and the baby because then how will Maxie get to see Georgie ? Six months are long but it can go fast! Or at least have a episode going onto six months and have them reunite back together something so it won’t get boring !! We don’t like boring and that’s where it’s going to head to ! So let’s get it together y’all and let them have a chance ! I liked Ellie as well but it doesn’t change how Spixie was and still is we all know it !

    I will miss Spinelli. I hope you bring him back. He was always fun to watch and added some much needed humor to the show at times.

    I will miss Bradford. I loved his character. I have noticed the pattern however, whenever a new character is introduced an old character is eliminated. Wish the writers could come up with some new material! More mob stuff, and another baby fathered by Patrick!! Same old, same old. I think the writers tend to ride a plot far too long, for instance this baby embryo theft. How long are we supposed to wait for them to reveal the truth about baby Ben being Dante and Lulu’s baby?????
