Finn’s father on GENERAL HOSPITAL is Gregory Chase, and should be recognizable to soap fans because he’s played by actor James Read, who had a memorable turn as the villainous Clyde on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. He also Gregory made his debut in June 2018 for a brief stint and then resurfaced again in September of the same year, departing in October.
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, might Finn reconsider and include his estranged father in the big day? Stay tuned to GH to find out what happens next!
