Sad news for General Hospital fans: John Ingle passed away yesterday at the age of 84. He last aired a few days ago in very emotional scenes with Patrick and Emma. I'm so glad he was able to return for those scenes.
John was a recast Edward Quartermaine, taking over for David Lewis. Recasts are sometimes hard to accept, but John was a great Edward recast. I really hope GH does a great tribute to John. GH won't be the same without Edward though, but it's a role that just shouldn't be recast.
John's wife just passed away in February. They had five daughters, nine grandchildren and three great-children. RIP John Ingle...you will be greatly missed.
In other GH news, Sean Kanan is returning to General Hospital! Yeah, I was surprised at that news. It's being kept top secret what role he will be playing. A few possibilities include: AJ - who was murdered, but this is a soap; a new character; a recast Jason or another recast character. My vote would be for either AJ or Jason in order to keep the Quartermaine's alive. Whatever role Sean will be playing, his addition will be a good start to filling the hole that will be left when Steve Burton leaves. His first air date will be October 29.
