With all the chatter about Lucas Jones over the last week or so on General Hospital, we knew that the adopted son of Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), would not be far behind! Especially since he is the bio-son of Julian Jerome (William deVry) who just discovered that there is a guy named, “Lucas”, who people have bantered about before him!
Now today comes confirmation, which began last week with an elusive tweet from none other than the first older version of Lucas Jones himself, sexy Ryan Carnes! The actor tweeted on December 4th, “Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be…” Obviously, the port is none other than Port Charles!
ABC Soaps In Depth spoke with GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini on the return of Carnes, where he stated, “Yes, he’s coming back. I got to meet him the other day. I like him a lot.”
Carnes last appeared on GH in 2004-2005. After Carnes left the show the soap opera brought back the character played by Days of our Lives Drake Hogestyn’s son, Ben. It was then that the character came out to his family and friends.
Recently on GH, Bobbie revealed that Lucas was living in Seattle, Washington and was still looking for the perfect man! So does this mean Lucas will become part of a triangle with Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) and Brad (Parry Shen)? No word on whether Lucas is coming back as a recurring or contract player at this point in time. On-Air On-Soaps will keep you posted as more details come to light!
As for Ryan Carnes, viewers not only remember him from General Hospital, but as the boyfriend of Bree Van de Kamp’s son Andrew’s on Desperate Housewives. He is also remembered for the cult film, Eating Out!
So, what do you think about the return of Ryan Carnes as Lucas? Do you think he is coming back for a major storyline? What do you think will happen when Lucas sets foot in Port Charles? Comment below!
