For a while now, Wally Kurth has been recurring on both GENERAL HOSPITAL as Ned and DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Justin, but it looks like that time has come to an end. The actor confirmed on Twitter last night that he’s leaving one to do the other full time.
“I did sign a contract with DAYS,” he posted. “Which will require me to leave GH. It’s bittersweet I can’t do both.”
While GH has had Kurth front and center pretending to have fathered Olivia’s baby to keep Julian in the dark about his child, the other soap hasn’t really used him as much. But now that DAYS has Adrienne getting closer to Lucas, it’s the perfect time for Justin to return full time and make it a real triangle.
“There’s great stuff coming up on GH for Ned and Olivia in the coming weeks,” Kurth promises. “I start back airing on DAYS in May and continue on.”
We’ll let you know as soon as we have more details about when Kurth will actually be exiting GH. How do you feel about this switch? Which show would you rather see the actor on? GH? DAYS? Both? Sound off in the comments!
