It’s been a while since viewers have seen Jake, but Hudson West is returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL very soon! When the young star left a lovely message wishing Tamara Braun well as she left the role of GH‘s Kim, a fan urged him to come back to the soap to be with his brothers. “I’ll be back in December!” he replied. “Yay!”
West made his debut as the latest young actor to play the role of Liz and Jason’s son back in 2016, and in 2017, became the center of attention as little Jake found himself haunted by his missing years on Cassadine Island, nearly releasing a deadly virus at the Nurses Ball at the bidding of the late Helena Cassadine! (Even from beyond the grave, that woman is nothing but trouble!)
The last time West appeared on GH was back in August when Jake had breakfast at Kelly’s with his parents and Liz chided Jason for not approving of her marriage to Franco. While West’s comment that he’d be back in December could mean he’ll be back taping episodes to air in January, it’s more likely that he’s already taped the episodes in November to air during the holiday season. Because that would be the perfect time for Liz and all her sons to get together… hopefully with a cured Franco as part of their family!
Stay tuned to see West back as Jake and for more GH casting news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
