Rumors were swirling on Twitter tonight after General Hospital’s Scott Reeves (Dr. Steven Webber) mysterious tweet which indicated that the actor may have finished his last days in Port Charles.  Reeves tweeted about four hours ago, “Love you all! Looking forward to seeing what God has next!”

However, it has now been revealed and confirmed through Reeves himself in a follow up tweet just a short time ago relating to his fans, “Hey guys, u know how much u mean 2 me and I wanted u 2 hear it from me. I was let go from GH today and my last day should b in Feb sometime.”

This came a day after General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini tweeted about the performance of Reeves on-screen lady love, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia).  Valentini’s message to his followers and fans of GH was,  “Amazing scenes taped today with @lisalocicerogh, can’t wait for you all to see them.”

So what do you think about Reeves being let-go from GH?  Are you sorry to see him go?  Let us know! On-Air On-Soaps wishes Scott all the best in his next endeavor!

    More room for OLTL actors? Def need more… Maybe he could head over to Days and be with his wife and they could write him in on that show and lose some bad storylines over there…

    It sucks!! GH has brought on 3 newbies to the hospital and are letting a legacy character go. Makes me wonder who is next.

    And they also have brought back how many legacy characters!!! How about people spend more time supporting what IS happening and less ridiculing what ISN’T happening. It sucks he’s leaving. And it sucks it’s another legacy character. However, they’re knocking it out of the park right now and the three newbies are helping. “Newbies” have to start somewhere. Sonny was a newbie once upon a time. Jason was a newbie once upon a time. Dante was a newbie once upon a time. Give em a shot before you count them out.

    Agreed! The old regime didn’t know what to do with him either.

    I’m hoping it is the girl that plays Christina. Oh, how I wish she goes off with Trey!

    The_HugoBoss replied

    They really didn’t. And I almost thought that with him being apart of the AJ cover up, that’d end up being more story for him. But I get it. I think the character was written into the ground awhile back, and they just couldn’t figure out how to make him work, without changing the character in his integrity.
    It sucks he’s leaving, but if it’s better for the show and storylines and characters to bring another character in, then I say make the best of it.
    Besides, he’s soooo talented, I just can’t imagine him not getting picked up on another show, whether it’s daytime or Primetime, sooner than later!

    Ces replied

    Yeah, I thought Steve and Monica would get into some type of trouble with the AJ thing too but looks like they decided to go in another direction there altogether.
    I never liked Olivia/Steve together and to me, she’s become so bumbling that I don’t enjoy watching her either.
    Scott is talented and he probably enjoys life in TN more than Hollywood so maybe he’ll pick up a gig here & there. Who knows, Y&R may get him back!

    I really like Scott Reeves & L.L. together, he wasn’t used near enough-the writers did not do him any justice. They should not recast or kill him off – don’t like Lucy Coe so hope this isn’t to make room for her, would rather see more OLTL characters, especially Melissa Archer.

    I’m kinda like him alot and so as Erik Valdo who played Trey Mitchel aka Joe Scully,Jr….too bad, I will missed them alot before GH’s 50th Anniversary…I’m pretty upset that Scott Reeves will leaves after he joined in 2008, I mean don’t give me all wrong, they r very good decent actor played their wonderful character!!! I will miss them alot. I still taped GH on the road to April 1 since Feb. 14,2012 right before Robin was killed by lab exposive.

    I am. Scott is such a good-looking actor, with talent to match. It’s probably best seeing as how he was extremely underused. I was hoping he would be apart of a good story coming up in the future.
    Definite loss for the show, but, hopefully a great opportunity for his career. I’m sure he’ll pop up sooner or later on something else.

    I totally agree with you HugoBoss. I am sorry to see Scott go, but clearly his expertise was not showcased on GH, which is too bad, as he is talented (and goooood looking), and I liked him with Olivia, and was hoping that relationship would have been explored in some way. I also hope this will give Scott the chance to entertain new roles, yet I hope both he and Steve Burton will remain with “Port Chuck”. Here is hoping they give me a good storyline between now and the time he goes. Much good luck to Steve and his future endeavors.

    Shame on gh for letting him go! He is such an outstanding actor and wonderful person. Instead of letting him go how about giving him a frontline story! Stop bringing in these new charactors we don’t care about and that i really cant name because i have even forgotten them,,,,and work the actors that we do care about, Show him more as a family man with liz , Olivia and him could really be a super couple if you would just give them a chance!

    I like Scott Reeves. He is talented and was not given enough screen time for character development. He is very good looking and this part of his character was not played up. I would rather watch more of him than the same worn to death character with too much screen time.

    I wish Scott the best of luck.

    So glad he’s going, never cared much for Steve and there are so many better characters, so happy Lucy Coe is coming back- yay Lynn herring. Use that budget savings and bring back more characters we love. Laters Scott, at least Missy’s still working.

    Well I feel the exact opposite. Like Steve and have never been able to stand Lucy. She is disgusting. Please tell me this is a short term visit or I might have to puke. So conceited, I’m sure she will find a way to make the Nurses Ball all about her like always. Gag

    And I feel the exact opposite of you. Scott Reeves is about as interesting an actor as a walking paper bag would be. Lynn Herring sparkles and brings magic to GH. I hope it’s a permanent return.

    Sorry but they made his character too dour and dull to enjoy and pairing him with equally boring Olivia made things worse. Hope she heads off with him.

    As for bringing back the Hardy/Webber family here are some suggestions:

    1. Bring back Sarah Webber-only this time GH cast a good actress in the role please!

    2. Matthew Ashford, who last played Tom Hardy is available (thanks DOOL RME) so how about bringing him back in the role?

    3. Tom’s son, Tommy was last seen in 1996 and about what 4 years old so that means now he’d almost 20 years old? Bring him on and GH won’t even have to SORA to do it for once LOL!

    4. I know Rachel Ames is retired but at she’s still alive right? Maybe GH can beg her to return, even if on recurring for an occasional appearance. I would take that even if it meant not always having to hear Liz mention her offscreen babysitting her kids. I want to see Audrey now and then please!

    Just my thoughts. Jenny

    I agree. I don’t think Steve and Olivia were all that exciting to watch. I really don’t think GH knows what to do with Olivia either which is why she’s just having hallucinations here & there – I’m betting she may be next. Quite honestly, I don’t think the show knows what to do with Elizabeth and I wouldn’t feel too bad if she left the show.

    Sad to see him go… He was not used that much even when Heather was on. I am hoping that this has nothing to do with his beliefs. I hope Missy keeps her job at DOOL. They do have TN to get back to and I am glad SB is there with them…still wish SB was coming back.

    Not sorry to see him go. I think he should either go to Tennessee and be a preacher or maybe play a gay man on Days and his wife can “convert” him. Just joking. I really don’t care where he goes. Just go.

  20. ashlee says:

    It is too bad that Scott has been let go, but lets be fair..if you were male during the Phelps/Guza regime, and your name was not Jason or Sonny, you didnt stand a chance. And Ron wrote the character as such a freakin dolt. It is sad because Reeves is a solid leading man, and he is a legacy character on the show. The fact that they are bringing on an effiminate gay nurse with ties to no one on the canvas is especially unsettling. I pray that God will lead Reeves into a new and rewarding jov where his talents will be utilized and appreciated.

    This is a misstep for GH in my opinion. I was hoping to see more of the Webber family integrated in some more human (as opposed to outrageous adventure) storylines. Reeves rocks and I liked his chemistry with other characters.

    I will miss him, but GH did not utilize his potential. Guys like Scott are one of the reasons I love to watch soaps- great actor and hot as fire. Plus he has a long history with soaps and is a familiar face to fans of other shows checking out GH. How long will it take show executives to figure this out :(

    What???? SR is on GH? I have been watching for a month and never seen him. I guess that might explain why he was let go, obviously his character isn’t on the radar right now. Now I will have to watch everyday as not to miss any of his last shows. I would love if he went back to Days- he was on there as part of a teen line when his wife first started on the show. I think they met on set there. I rather see the character Jennifer Horton on Days with anyone else but Daniel. He is always staring at her like she is a pork chop and he hasn’t eaten in a month. It is creepy to watch. So it would great to have SR work his wife again. I hope Days is smart enough to get him back into fold.

    I dont usually post directly at others but what a bigoted, hateful comment you posted. You dont know these people at all! You just wished that a family would lose their livelihood because they believe in God and you don‘t! So, because they dont share your view on gay, that gives you the right to bash and attack them and wish them harm? Wow! Youre crying for acceptance, but then bashing people who dont happen to share your view, which is the very thing youre accusing them of! Double standard much? Youre into free speech as long as it doesnt offend you, and when it does offend you, then suddenly free speech isnt so good. Hey? You cant have that both ways. I am a Christian, but I have gay friends and family members and just pray for their well being and love them. Melissa Reeves did nothing more than state that she enjoys eating at a restaurant. For that she should lose a job in an industry that she has been a beloved part of for 28 years?? If thats how you feel…then you are the bigoted hater!

    unfortunately, I have to agree…. Scott Reeves, Steven just didn’t have it, with the likes of the ubber talented Heather Webber, and the “mega-watt” favorite, Elizabeth… and let alone… Olivia…. ie: i was finally starting to like her… as the LSD hallucinagens.. and/or visions take off… I liked Olivia with Kate as well… when and if we ever get to see her and the cousins again….

    it just saddens me to the point that other actors, fall by the wayside… as in no story for ….. Heather, Elizabeth, and Olivia… 3 good actors.

    I agree. The new girl trio and Felix are ridiculous and need to go. I never really liked Reeves in that role, but I wish they wouldn’t let a legacy character go. I think they should recast in a few months if they can work up a decent story line for the character.

    Oh, and he should take Olivia with him. I’ve been over that character for a while. She doesn’t really fit with anything going on in PC these days, especially with Steve gone.

    Bring Scott back as Dr. Steve Webber. Olivia needs to have someone she can count on in her life. They were so good together. Write him back into the script somehow. Scott is missed very much and it was a shame that you let him go to begin with.
