A familiar face is popping back to Port Charles for another visit! Gavin Houston is returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Zeke! The actor let the news slip during an interview with WJBF Digital about his career. When asked to look back at his recent appearance on the ABC soap, Houston revealed: “I’m still on GH, actually. I go back to playing Zeke for this meaty storyline in like, two weeks.”
Houston got his big break when he made his daytime debut as Remy Boudreau on CBS sudser GUIDING LIGHT back in 2002. While appearing in various primetime series, the actor first appeared on GH back in 2010 as Sly Thomas, a CSI tech helping Mac investigate Claudia Zacchara’s murder. But in February 2023, Houston was back in Port Charles as another character, Portia’s brother, Zeke.
While Zeke only appeared in a handful of episodes alongside Ricco Ross as Portia and Zeke’s father, Dr. Sterling Robinson, to attend his sister’s wedding, it sounds like his next visit won’t be such a happy occasion. Could Houston’s “meaty storyline” have to do with supporting Portia during the aftermath of Trina’s paternity test to discover whether Curtis or Taggert is her father?
Houston is also honored to be appearing on GH as the soap celebrates its 60th anniversary on television. “Soaps were such a big thing, growing up,” he said. “Going through all of this where a lot of soaps, including GL, have been canceled, it was great to be a part of that achievement for them. GH was this big thing, and I was like, ‘Wow, they’re so lucky. It must be amazing to work on that show.’ And then here I am, a part of that show. So it’s really a blessing.”
If Houston is returning to the studio in late May, Zeke should be back on screen sometime in late June. So stay tuned to see what brings Portia’s brother back to town… and how long he’ll be sticking around this time!
