It’s been confirmed to On-Air On-Soaps via a GH rep, and now Tyler Christopher himself took to Twitter to address his legions of fans following yesterday’s breaking news that he has indeed vacated his 2o-year-role as Nikolas Cassadine.
Christopher, who left the show back in June and was temporarily replaced by Nick Stabile, was in lenghy contract talks with the series that fell apart. Thus Tyler will not be returning to the daytime drama that made him soap-famous.
Late Wednesday night, Tyler put out a touching ‘thank you’ tweet to his fans for their continued support and well-wishes, stating: “Thank u all for your kind words. You’re the best fans in the world. I will miss u!
And what a run it was! Tyler completed his tenure with GH with a Daytime Emmy as the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series earlier this year in late April.
As to what GH plans to do with the role of Nikolas remains to be seen. Will they leave the character off the canvas for the forseeable future since he is believed-to-be-dead? Will Nick Stabile come back as a permanent replacement? Several questions yet to be answered from the ABC soap.
For now, let us know your thoughts on Tyler’s heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the fans in the comment section below. and what you hope GH does with the character of Nikolas moving forward?
