Rick Springfield as expected is returning to General Hospital for the shows 50th Anniversary in a short story arc according to PEOPLE as Dr. Noah Drake.
The pop rocker/author/soap star related on Noah’s history, “He lost his wife and became a drunk and regretted all these terrible, sinful ways and then cleaned his act up when he almost died from the alcohol. Now he disappears all the time, going to Doctors Without Borders and going around the world helping people. I guess he’s gone from a drunk to being incredibly altruistic. I’m not nearly as altruistic as Noah Drake is.”
Springfield’s son, Liam Springthorpe, has also landed a GH gig and will appear as an undercover cop.
So GH fans, are you excited to see another return of the original Dr. Drake? Do you hope that he will have more scenes with his on-screen son this time, Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson)? And what about Liam as an undercover cop? Weigh-in!
