As many fans of ABC’s General Hospital know by now, Robb Derringer’s run as Agent Kyle Sloane has come to an end as the actor let everyone know recently via social media on December 19th that he wrapped his final episode.
Now a new campaign has been started… the #SaveSloane campaign by fans on facebook in hopes of bringing back the character.
Robb wrote in appreciation to the campaigners: “I just want to express to everyone how grateful and humbled I am by the outpouring of support and love you’ve shown me in playing the character of Special Agent Kyle Sloane. I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me. I’m still unsure what exactly I did wrong for them to end my run on GH as I tried my best every day I was there to deliver a complex, multidimensional and dynamic character. I believe I did so. But there’s nothing more I can do except hope that maybe the voices of you fans might change the minds of the producers, writers and execs at GH/ABC. Regardless I remain grateful for the time I did have playing Sloane and loved every minute of it, including working opposite Finola Hughes who is a lovely person and terrific actor. I’m also very grateful to Frank Valentini for giving me the opportunity he did with Sloane. Anyway, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your efforts, your time and your enthusiasm.”
He went on to tease: “There’s a lot coming up in the coming episodes for Sloane. Some pretty interesting, exciting stuff and certainly there was so many places for me to go with the character. Maybe your campaign to bring me back might work. I hope it may. Regardless I’m humbled and indebted to each and every one of you for your kindness and support. Much love…xo”
