Actor Johnny Wactor has joined the cast of GENERAL HOSPITAL as the supposedly-dead Brando Corbin. Although his IMDb page listed his first episode as Jan. 22, due to the preemptions for news coverage, that was naturally pushed back to Jan. 30. GH is Wactor’s daytime debut, although the actor has an extensive resume that includes appearances in primetime series like ARMY WIVES, SIBERIA, CRIMINAL MINDS, NCIS, and THE OA.
Brando is the son of Gladys Corbin, although she has told everyone that he was killed in action. When Sonny caught her leaving him a voicemail message at Christmas, she claimed she liked to do it to feel close to her son. But there was a lot more to it than that! Brando is also supposed to be Dev’s father according to the fake papers Sonny Corinthos had drawn up to keep the kid in the country. So things are got a whole lot more complicated once he entered the picture!
When gunshots rang out at the Corinthos Coffee warehouse, Carly Corinthos assumed the gunman protecting her during the shootout was one of Sonny’s men. But after the guy took a bullet for her, Carly was stunned when Gladys recognized him and called out: “Brando?!” Later, at the hospital, Sonny questioned the guy who admitted he’d run out on his mother after a huge fight. But he still checked on her social media and when he saw her posting about a grandson, looked her up to find out what was going on because he never had any kids.
When Carly questioned why he saved her, wondering if he knew she was Sonny’s wife, he admitted he was just acting on instinct. Brando then quizzed her about this supposed son he has, and Carly explained the whole situation and the forged papers. Brando reluctantly agreed to go along with the scheme but wanted to go home to Chicago. However, Sonny gifted him with a garage, assuring him it wasn’t a front and that he didn’t want Brando involved in his business. This was just a way of thanking him for saving Carly’s life.
Brando was nice to Molly Davis when she stopped by to have her car looked at and the pair ended up spending the night together. But the next day she learned that her boyfriend hadn’t run out on her, he’d been kidnapped! She swore Brando to secrecy about their liaison and he promised to keep quiet.
Stay tuned to GH to see how Brando’s story continues!
