With Nikolas taking a bullet for Ava on GENERAL HOSPITAL, that’s the end of Nick Stabile’s temporary stint in the role, paving the way for Tyler Christopher to return.
When the recast was announced back in May, reports had Christopher in lengthy contract negotiations with GH. And unfortunately, it appears that they are still ongoing, as the soap currently has no update on when Christopher would be back.
Stabile won over plenty of fans who wouldn’t mind seeing him take over the role permanently. Though the actor appreciated the sentiment, he assured fans on Twitter, “Tyler is going nowhere. He’s a staple on that show and a great actor.”
Perhaps GH could find another role for Stabile to play in order to take advantage of his chemistry with Maura West’s Ava. Or, if Christopher is unable to reach a deal with the show, Stabile could step in as Nikolas on a permanent basis after all.
Stay tuned for further updates in this ongoing story!
