Jason and Sam’s son is about to get a new look as TK Weaver has announced that there is going to be a new Danny Morgan on GENERAL HOSPITAL. “I was recast,” he tweeted with emojis of a crying face and a broken heart. “I found out a couple weeks ago, but I was asked not to tell anyone. Broke my heart. I love you all so much. I love my GH family and all of you who make my day every day! You guys are the best!”
Danny was born on screen in June of 2012 and was played by twins Gage and Gavin at birth, and later by twins Jaxon and Jakob Kring as toddlers for a couple years. Caden and Corben Rothweiler took over in 2014, followed by Braiden and Dylan Kazowski. Weaver was the first solo actor to portray the character and he made his debut in May of 2016. During that time, he has received two Young Artist Award nominations as well as a Young Entertainer Award for his work on the soap.
“I want to give a shoutout to my amazing GH family,” Weaver declared as the well wishes from disappointed fans flooded in on social media. “I loved being Danny Morgan for three years. I learned so much. I wish I could’ve grown up more on the show but it didn’t happen, unfortunately. I want to thank Kelly Monaco (Sam) for being the most beautiful and classiest set mom a kid could ever ask for. Also, the amazing Billy Miller (Drew), who isn’t on social media, but who called me with great advice and offered to come to my house and give me a big bear hug if I ever need one. Huge thank you to Steve Burton (Jason), who called me to make sure I was okay and that I wasn’t feeling like the recast was my fault. He has continued to touch base to make sure I’m okay. He is such a good person with great advice. I learned so much from him. I was so lucky to meet him. Good luck to the new Danny! I hope you all love him, too! Truly.”
The actor playing Danny now is Porter Fasullo, and he’s got some big shoes to fill! For more GH casting news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
