Among the fans of the renewed relationship between formerly-estranged half brothers Chase and Finn on GENERAL HOSPITAL is the cop’s portrayer, Josh Swickard. “It’s a fun storyline we’ve got going on,” said the actor. As viewers will surely remember, Finn had cut himself off from his family long ago, and when his sibling showed up in Port Charles, he was incredibly short with him. “But Chase just longed for that relationship, so he slowly chiseled away at Finn,” Swickard recalled with a grin. “Every time he ran into Finn, he tried to warm him up a bit. That was his evil plan.”
And miraculously, it worked! Now the guys have each other’s back. “I loved the episode where Chase was there for Finn through Anna’s scare,” raved Swickard, flashing back to when Anna went blind. “It was really sweet. I enjoy that brother relationship so much — and Anna’s becoming part of this little family. I felt brotherly in those scenes because I was there for Finn but also for Anna.”
Of course, we still have no idea what Finn’s drama with his family was — and he clearly wasn’t over it when their father, Gregory Chase, popped in for a surprise check-up last year! In fact, he was so stung by Finn’s coldness that he asked his detective son to get to the bottom of his brother’s ire. “I don’t know if we’re going to go back and discover what caused that big rift between them,” Swickard says. But whether the show goes there or not, “I like where we’re at now — [with Finn and Chase] just being good buddies who are there for each other.”
