Great news General Hospital fans!  Those who have been hoping that Wally Kurth will be making another return to the ABC soap opera as Ned Ashton will be getting their wish soon!

According to a tweet from Kurth himself today, “Well, I had nice day in Port Charles yesterday. Yes, Ned will be arriving in town soon.  Stay tuned.  Thanks for waiting!”

Wally is currently recurring on Days of our Lives in the role of Justin Kiriakis, and last made an appearance in Port Charles in January of 2013.   In addition, the fan favorite landed in the Supporting Actor Pre-Nomination field vying for this year’s Daytime Emmy!

Upon getting into the next round, Kurth also tweeted, “Very excited to be on the Pre-Nomination list for the Emmys this year. Looks to be a crowded field.”

So what do you think will bring Ned back to Port Charles? Are you happy to hear Wally will be making a visit? Let us know! And as soon as we know an update of his airdate, we will announce it.

    Tracy may need Ned to help her solve Lukes strange behavior or to help fight Donna Mills character who is plotting a takeover of ELQ?

    jimh, I trust you to give an honest answer. Knowing that I only watch DAYS and you watch DAYS and GH, which soap should have Wally full time if he wanted full time?

    I see Justin as a viable character whom should be used more with Adrienne and Sonny and also Victor. I want Wally on DAYS full time!!!

    How much is he wanted and needed on GH?

    I actually dont mind him doing both shows like Eilen Davison does Days and Y&R but i do like him better as Justin on Days…however, both shows dont seem to have…imo…interesting long term plans for either of his characters to warrant him full time on either show at the moment!!!

    Thanks for the reply! You’ll just(in) have to write a story!!!

    @Elite…wow! Could NOT DISAGREE MORE! I LOVE AJ and hope he’s on for the remainder of the show!

    I’m with Rebecca! I love AJ and want to see him finally win one. He is the rich man’s Willy Loman.

    Looking forward to seeing Wally/Ned. Sometimes they make Ned too rough around the edges. I hope he is the nicer Ned. I hope whatever the mystery is with Luke will be over with by then, but i doubt it. Very mysterious. Maybe Ned will be there due to that. ?? Would love him to come back. There are too few Qs.

    Glad to see Wally back. Too bad we can’t put him back with Lois. These were great moments. Wonder why we never hear about the Mary Mae Ward and Edward Q part of the family?

    YEA!!! So happy!!! Don’t know why he can’t do both!!!

    4everDAYS replied

    If he could only do one soap full time, which soap should he do; DAYS or GH?

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I wouldve had him stay at Days and involved him with Hope instead of her with Aiden…wouldve loved seeing a jilted Adrienne starting to have mental issues and going after Hope!!!

    Wally Kurth is a pleasure to watch on DOOL and a real breath of fresh air – and talent – on GH.

    Reply

    4everDAYS replied

    If he had only one soap to pick full time, should he choose DAYS or GH?

    Reply

    boes replied

    He should choose Days, without a doubt. It’s the far superior show.

    Michael replied

    He should choose the show that offers him a contract since those are a rarity these days.

  17. Michael says:

    I hope he does both soaps.

    Wally Kurth is a “dreamboat”

    I love his looks… his dimples… his looks… his acting… his looks… his presence…

    He deserves to be a finalist as an Emmy list nominee

    He’s at his best on both shows… but.. DAYS is all the better for featuring… him… and it should be more frequent

    I agree; he always has been, gets better with age! I welcome him back to Port Charles, always!

    Ned is in town as Julian’s secret partner. The show is hiding who the partner is by making viewers assume it’s Ric. Ned is not only rich enough, but also he had history with Julia Barrett; that she would sell her company to him. Which we no the owner of Barrett is Julian’s backer and Ric has never had that type of money.

    Helen Conboy replied

    I do believe that Ned is Jillian’s backer. Now that would be a great storyline for GH. Ned was involved with Julia and has always hated Sonny! That would be so much fun and unexpected.

    We do need more Q’s back in Port Charles, but not the same old, same old ones. Was never a Ned fan….. what about Celia and Jimmy Lee? And her hubby “Grant?” Whatever, hope Kurth’s return does not portend an AJ exit….love SK and very tired of his character being mistreated and tortured. The only way I could see him leaving is if he is later returning in the role of Jason, although to be honest AJ was always much more appealing to me than “Stonecold” ever was or could be…..Kanan’s stint on the show has been really squandered over this past year….I can only hope that AJ will be on the mend soon, and getting a storyline befitting of the actor’s talent.

    I do agree with you about Sean Kanan-AJ. Sean is an amazing actor, and I’d like to see AJ really clean-up his act and finally become successful with a beautiful woman on his arm! Love when he barbs with Tracy!

    Reply

    Michael replied

    Sean is wonderful addition to the show and I love his chemistry with Maura West.

    Shay replied

    Unfortunately, none of us will be having our druthers where AJ is concerned given the recent announcement of Sean’s forthcoming departure…..

  22. Mo says:

    Wish he’d be on Days again. I don’t know why Days made Aiden a lawyer when we already have Justin. Doesn’t bode well for airtime for Justin.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    With Peter R.(Bo) obviously not returning and no recast as Bo, i wouldve liked to had seen a Hope and Justin pairing…they couldve become close if Bo had been killed off (off camera) and Justin was helping Hope with legal issues involving Bo’s estate or if Hope was divorcing Bo and Justin was handling that…he himself having marital issues with Adrienne at the time as well…i predicted an obvious Aiden and Hope pairing a long time ago and suggested ‘Days’ needs to bring in a new family(without diminishing the Horton and Bradys importance) to refreshen the show but i still wouldve enjoyed a Justin and Hope pairing!!!

    I’m thrilled! I absolutely love Wally, on both DAYS and GH; but, my all-time favorite will always be him as Ned Ashton (AKA Eddie Maine) on GH! Bring it, Wally! Love the Q’s!

    As long as they have a story for him. I dont want Tracey to cry on his shoulder and then he is back in Salem the following week! Make him head of ELQ. Cast Dylan, sober up AJ. Tracy can referee the boys! Do you realize the only business that they show on a regular basis other than the hospital is Kellys. Make ELQ relevant again. See: Newman, Jabot, and Chancellor.

    Ned and Alexis need to be back together romantically. Their couple name should be Nexis! Heard it here first.

    I would love it if Ned is Julians secret partner. he could take down Sonny. he could find out Sonny shot his cousin, of course Ned is dumb enough to not care. lets face it , its just FranknRon’ s bait and switch. He will be here a week stretched into two months, and be gone.

    Luke touched Kiki’s backside the other day.. He is acting cuckoo.. Doesn’t the actor who plays Julian have a rather big head…

    I think Sean Kanan’s character of AJ is being written off. He is supposed to be returning to BB next month. Good to see Wally back in town.

    He hasn’t been on Days in awhile does this mean Justin is not coming back to Salem?
