57 April 20th, 2013 Tyler Christopher on Status with General Hospital: “I’ll Still Be Hanging Around Port Charles!”

Great news for Nikolas Cassadine and General Hospital fans!  While Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) awaits news to see if his ABC Family series, The Lying Game gets a renewal pick-up this summer, the talented actor let his fans and followers know via his Twitter account that he is going to stick around Port Charles for now!

Tyler first tweeted on the status of The Lying Game, “So not ideal news for #thelyinggame as it appears that a decision won’t be made until mid summer. Thanks for all your support.”  He then followed that up with another tweet relating, “In the meantime, I’ll still be hanging around #portcharles!

With Tyler still available to film new episodes of General Hospital, could this mean there is a major triangle ahead for A.J./Liz/Nikolas?  Will we then get to see more scenes between Tyler and his on-screen mom, Genie Francis as Laura?  Will more Cassadine drama continue to unfold? 

Let us know your thoughts on how GH should utilize Tyler Christopher in story!

    I have always loved his dynamic with Tony Geary (Luke), so I hope there’s more of that. Used to be hatred, now it’s some kind of respect and Luke even smiled at him when he walked in a couple weeks ago.

    anybody know exactly WHEN Luke has warmed up toward Nik? I know he used to loathe Nik but don’t recall when and why he warms up to Nik.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I don’t remember the “why,” but I think I remember the “when”–it was when the other actor (Colton something/Steve Martines) was playing Nicholas for those few years when Tyler took a break. It might have had to do with when Stavros was around the last time, in 2001 or so. I just remember scenes with the two of them (Luke and interim-Nik) having to work together on some “adventure” or other and deciding they sort of liked each other after all.

    Unless, of course, they rewrote that later and put the hostility back into the relations; I stopped paying careful attention to that kind of thing during the JFP years.

    How did Luke react to the Nik-Elizabeth affair? I remember a scene in which he told Lucky if somebody needed to be shot, let him be the one to do it, but I took that as his wanting to spare Lucky a trial and prison rather than any real animosity toward either Nik or Liz. Other than that I don’t remember much about Luke’s reaction.

    no, I hope Brenda is gone. I used to love Brenda and Jax but the way she pinned over Sonny, I’d wish she would just leave town pronto and never come back.

    Very happy to hear the good news about Tyler,even though I like the lying game too. He is a great actor and I love seeing him on any show but, on GH he is very special . I can’t wait to see what storyline they wrote for his character. Thank you Michael for all your wonderful articles. Have a great weekend.

    So happy to see Tyler back!!! I always loved him! He was always my favorite! Wish they could find a love interest for him to rival his love Emily!! Elizabeth doesn’t cut it!! I don’t like them together…no spark! I agree Jason needs to come back! GH needs to woo Steve Burton back!!! Cut some of these ridiculous characters salaries and pay Steve…..He was the show!! Miss Sam and Jason and now the baby….

    i think that OLTL actor who was mcbain should be recast as jason.

    Reply

    jimh replied

    That was once one of my suggestions too…this way they could still pair him with Sam…i wonder if any of the three will stay with the show or if they even signed a new contract…seems the old contracts should be void now that they arent continuing their former characters on GH?

    TarlyFan replied

    no, don’t recast Jason. SB has been playing the role for too long that I don’t think it would be a good idea to recast Jason. If SB ever comes back, I hope Jason will forget about his past as Jason Morgan,,, and becomes Jason Quartermaine again. We have had enough of the mob for the last decade plus. No more mob please.

    Pen replied

    The contracts were with the actors, not the characters. So there’s no reason they would be voided, even if anyone had wanted such a thing.

    Tyler Christopher is sooooo handsome. What a great body! I’m very happy to hear he’ll be hanging around Port Charles for a while.
    Please try to get Jason/Steve Burton back. I miss him, and there is definitely something lacking without him.

  14. Carol says:

    I am so glad he is staying…. at least for awhile. Wish he was going to stay on forever. He is looking so handsome… and it would make a good triangle love story. Love him with Liz.

    this is going to be ONE “HOT” summer story-line.

    and i couldn’t be more happier….

    I swear… Liz looks so relaxed and comfortable with Nicholas….

    and! She’s GOOD w/AJ.

    this trio should smolder and burn up our screens….

    it’s about time… for another good love story… romance..

    and! I’ll say it now…. Emme Rylan IS Lulu…. in fact.. she has that sexy vibe going… as well…..

    i’ll always LOVE her best as Lizzie Spaulding…. w/Beth on Guiding Light!

    so…

    Liz – Nicholas – AJ

    nuLulu n/Dante.

    Ces replied

    Loving the Nicholas/Liz/AJ potential but she put the kabosh on
    him yesterday … somehow I don’t think AJ is done though.

    Nicholas/Tyler Christopher is just smoldering and I love the tie to
    Tracy now to further tick AJ off

    I still don’t like Emme Rylan as Lulu, she reminds me a of Siamese Cat; not that I liked Julie Berman’s version either. We’ll see..the jury is still out
    on this.

    I really wish Milo would go away though. Am I the only one that
    does NOT find him remotely attractive?

    I hope that Tyler can stay and I hope also do The Lying Game. What will be will be. I don’t watch TLG but I don’t wish him out of a job. I am so happy to hear that Genie, Kin, and Lynn are staying around and that Jacklyn will be back. I think she should come back for good!!

    Love Tyler!!! Was hoping you would get to speak with him on the red carpet at the Paley Center… Michael!

    I love The Lying Game and have watched it because of Tyler! I hope it gets renewed and he can work on both GH and The Lying Game! I would like to see him stop or cease the Liz and AJ relationship… I just don’t like Liz with AJ… would much prefer her with Nikolas… if he would stay for awhile and not leave her so fast!

    Tyler is looking so great and he’s so fun to have around. Would love more time with Genie and him… would love him being there for Lulu. Would love to see him hook up Tracy against AJ to get Pickle Lila and ELQ back on track… that would be a great storyline! I am just glad he’s back for now and I hope they use him well!!!

    First of all, very happy that TC will be staying with GH (hopefully, even if LG gets a pick-up, he can figure out a way to do both). Secondly, I wouldn’t mind seeing Nik/Liz revisited, but only if it’s done properly this time. No demonizing the characters for the purpose of turning the audience against them (yes, I’m referring to you, Mr. Guza…Ugh). I’d also like to see Nik get involved in the ELQ s/l, and a new Cassadine mystery would be great. There are so many ways for RC to utilize the character. Can’t wait to see what happens.

  25. KLJinTN says:

    The question was how should GH use TC so how this got to be about Jason I have no idea. Some people just can’t let Steve Burton go. I love him to, so I watch him on Y&R. Glad his character is gone. Now on to the important topic.

    Tyler’s Nikolas has so many story possibilities. First, I want he and Elizabeth to have a chance to see if what they had together before was just chemistry, and boy did they ever have chemistry, or was it the beginning of something more. So I say YES to Liz and Nikolas. Lucky is a non-factor. He hasn’t even called to check on his son in over a year and instead has chosen to go take care of orphans in Africa. Liz has spent the best part of her life trying to pay Lucky back for saving her as a teenager. I say let it go. Emily is gone. I think the fact that we saw her ghost says it all. She died in 2007, that was 6 years ago. Nikolas should be allowed to move on too. I want them raising their boys together. As the defacto head of the Cassadine family, Nikolas can be involved in plenty of stories. I would love to see him invest in ELQ, maybe helping Tracy out, so that he and AJ would be rivals not only for Liz’s affection but in the business world. Nikolas also needs to get back on the board of the hospital soon b/c that place has serious security issues. Anyone can walk in to the lab and use it for any reason, even change a paternity test. Someone needs to work on GH security. LOL

    As an A.J. supporter I’m disappointed Nuikolas is staying as he has apparently forgotten the damage he caused the last time he and Elizabeth got together. Besides, she brings out the best in A.J., and I want to see their romance as a story of two people seeking redemption from the outside world while seeking out each other. A.J. and Elizabeth have a lot more in common than Nikolas and Elizabeth: they both grew up within their families as the resident ‘black sheep”, forever being outshone by their siblings and also having a history of bad luck in relationships, and both also are capable of self-destructive behavior that has led to heartache for themselves and others. As kindred souls, A.J. andv Elizabeth can help each other and something wonderful can result!

    I started watching again for the Nurses Ball and am a long time GH fan. However, the Cassadines and Corinthos are concentrated on way too much. I hope they can get some of that mid to late 90′s stuff back. I loved Lucy and Kevin with Mac and Felicia back then, great comedy with those four. Hopefully, the producers and writers can tap back into that and don’t get suckered into the Frisco fan’s revolt and bring his character back again. A character, I might add, that I loved back in the day, so I am not bashing him. Sorry Frisco fans. Hope all your boo boo’s have healed.

    I am a very happy viewer now that Tyler is back! I loved him as a partner for Liz in their past relationship and was very sorry that they broke up. I hope he sticks around for a long time and I certainly hope he and Liz stay as a couple. It will be really interesting to see AJ and Nicholas battle it out. I also enjoy watching the relationship between Nicholas and Laura. Luke needs to get over his animosity toward him. Looking forward to all the storylines involving Nicholas.

    Hope Nik stays around a long time. Love him and Liz together. They have great chemistry and they are bonded by their past and long time friendship. Just glad they no longer have to worry about cheating on Lucky. That was just wrong, especially when JJ was playing Lucky. Liz and AJ just don’t do it for me. Feels like Liz is just trying to hang on to a piece of Jason. Add to all that, Liz and Nik are just so pretty together. (Too bad soap stars never get considered for the cover of People magazine’s Most Beautiful People issue. Miss Paltrow and Mr. Whoever move over and make way for some real beauties!) Also excited to see Nic interact with his mom and LuLu and , of course, with Luke (LOL).
