The big announcement promised today from General Hospital’s executive producer Frank Valentini was revealed late Tuesday morning via his Twitter account! And through a short video clip GH fans learned that Michael Easton, who was killed off as Dr. Silas Clay last year, is returning to the ABC daytime drama series!
In the video clip, we see Valentini in a supermarket with Michael Easton in the same aisle. Frank asks Michael if he would like to come back to General Hospital. Easton responds, “Do you have something good?” Valentini tells Michael he has something great, and then Easton says he will see Frank in a few weeks!
Now at the moment, General Hospital is keeping mum as to what role Easton will play. However, it will be a new role for the fan favorite. According to a tweet and facebook post from ABC’s GH executive Nathan Varni, Easton is returning to the series in an exciting new role with more details to be released later this month.
Michael took to his official facebook page immediately following the announcement to share: “IT’S TRUE… It was your kindness and support that made this happen. I am humbled by your faith. With gratitude and love, now and always, Michael.”
