Gregory Chase on GENERAL HOSPITAL has a new look so it’s understandable if some fans might be a little confused. When the character first appeared in June 2018, he was played by actor James Read, who had a memorable turn as the villainous Clyde on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. He resurfaced again in September of the same year, departing in October, but when the character returns in the fall of 2020, he’ll be played by veteran television actor Gregory Harrison.
Dr. Hamilton Finn was surprised to run into his father, Gregory Chase, while in California with Anna Devane. Gregory attempted to apologize for the rift that had come between them, but Finn couldn’t get over the fact that he felt his dad had moved on too quickly with Chase’s mom after his wife had died. Gregory wanted to try and put the past behind them and move on, but Finn wanted nothing to do with his father and walked out of the cafe.
In September, Gregory traveled to Port Charles and met with his other son, Harrison Chase, as well as Finn and Anna at the Metro Court. Eventually, he admitted that he was sick and Finn reluctantly agreed to treat his father. Later, Finn discovered Gregory was suffering from PTLDS, Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome, and advised him how to recover. Gregory remained upset that his son still wouldn’t forgive him and tried to convince him that he and his stepmother are actually quite a bit alike and would make a great team.
With Finn and Anna preparing to get married, it’s only natural that Gregory would return to the canvas to be a part of his son’s big day whether he likes it or not. Add to that the fact that his wife, Jackie Templeton, is back in Port Charles and you’ve got a recipe for drama! Stay tuned to see what happens next!
