Fans might not recognize GENERAL HOSPITAL star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) with the new look he’s sporting for a project he’s currently filming in New York City! “And now for something completely different,” he tweeted with a photo of himself wearing glasses with spiked-up hair and a scruff of facial hair covering his chin!

While Stuart hasn’t revealed any details regarding this new role, when someone on Twitter suggested he was playing a young Sigmund Freud, he replied: “Close! Very close!” The actor then followed up with another photo where he appeared to be in costume and without the glasses. “Abe Linkin?” he joked “Working on a pilot in NYC. Can’t tell you details.”
Stuart does look a bit like a young Abraham Lincoln, but you can’t even tell from the photo if his costume is period or modern dress. He’s doing a very good job of keeping this secret project a secret! However, while he is delighted to be back working in New York City again (he starred on ALL MY CHILDREN as Will Cortlandt in the ‘90s), he still misses his home in California. “Miss my wife and kids,” he tweeted. “And my Land Rover. And Michelle Stafford (Nina) and Finola Hughes (Anna) and warmth.”
Hughes replied: “Aw, James! Miss you back!” But since this is just a pilot, Stuart shouldn’t be away from GH for too long. Heck, with all the drama currently going on in Port Charles, viewers might not even notice Valentin is missing for a little while! Still, fans are hoping that whatever this mystery project is, it doesn’t take him away from the soap for an extended length of time because they want to see a lot more of Valentin!
As soon as Stuart reveals more about his new role, we’ll be sure to let you know! And for more on your favorite GH actors, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps in Depth magazine!
