As soon as the name Cyrus came up on GENERAL HOSPITAL, fans were as desperate as Jason and Sonny to know more about this new villainous threat in Port Charles! Well, the role of Cyrus Renault will be played by actor Jeff Kober, who has quite an extensive resume in film and television including roles on FALCON CREST, CHINA BEACH, SONS OF ANARCHY, and NCIS: LOS ANGELES. He was meant to debut at the end of January, but preemptions pushed his first air date back a bit and Kober will be making his daytime debut on Feb. 6.
Cyrus Renault is a Pentonville inmate who is challenging Sonny Corinthos‘ authority in Port Charles. When Sonny found himself attacked by gunmen in Brooklyn at the same time that his wife, Carly, came under fire at the Corinthos Coffee warehouse and Michael Corinthos was shot at on the docks, he knew that someone was out to take him down. After spending some time interrogating one of the gunmen, Sonny left it up to Jason Morgan, who found himself involved in yet another gunfight which left the shooter bleeding to death so Jason was able to get him to name his boss: Cyrus!
Cyrus is a drug runner from the Northwest who has been running his operations from prison for the past decade. But when Sonny had Brick look into him, they discovered he’d recently been transferred to Pentonville.
What is Cyrus’ connection to Sonny and what other vengeful plans does the guy have in store? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out and for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
