Viewers of GENERAL HOSPITAL already know what an incredible actor Bryan Craig is from the five years he spent on the soap playing Morgan Corinthos. But now everyone else is finding out for themselves as his career continues to blow up outside of daytime. Craig is starring in the upcoming primetime sudser, GRAND HOTEL, and a billboard for his new show featuring his torso inspired him to stop for a quick photo… and some reflection. “I don’t usually get sentimental about things,” he shared, “but now feels like an appropriate moment.
“I’ve lived in LA for 10 years busting my [butt] trying to turn my passion into a career,” Craig continued. “You have all these ideas about how things might turn out and what could happen and for the most part it’s a long, hard journey of ‘No’s’ and ‘He or she just isn’t right for this role.’ You’ve got to savor the good moments and the victories because we all know they are not easy to come by. This is a good moment for me. Thank you GRAND HOTEL and ABC and everyone who has supported me over the years for this. And tune in to see my full face!”
Craig got his big break in 2013 when he was hired to play Morgan on GH, and earned four Daytime Emmy Award nominations over the years, taking home the trophy for Outstanding Younger Actor twice. But in 2015, the young actor left daytime to pursue other career opportunities and immediately hit it big with roles in films like Ride and American Fighter as well as primetime series like VALOR.
His newest series, GRAND HOTEL premieres Monday, June 17, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC, so be sure to tune in and watch as Craig’s star continues to rise. And for more on your favorite GH stars — past and present — keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
