That’s Nicholas Alexander Chavez playing the new Spencer on GENERAL HOSPITAL. The young actor made his debut in the July 2 episode — in disguise — when the teen was revealed to be the mysterious stalker who had been tormenting Nikolas and Ava for months. Not only is Chavez making his daytime debut in the role but his IMDb page is currently blank aside from his GH role.
Spencer Cassadine was born on-screen in February 2006 and was played by a series of infants and child actors until Davin Ransom stepped in to play the tyke from 2009-11. In May 2013, Nicolas Bechtel took over the role and Spencer became a fan-favorite for his various schemes and troublemaking. In 2015, Bechtel landed a role on the Disney Channel series STUCK IN THE MIDDLE, so his appearances on the soap became more sporadic.
The last time Spencer has been seen on camera was back in January 2020, when Nikolas and Ava visited him at his boarding school in Paris to reveal that his father, Nikolas, wasn’t actually dead. Nik tried to explain to his son why he had faked his own death to figure out a way to get the Cassadine fortune back from Valentin, but Spencer refused to forgive his father for his heartbreaking lie and pushed him away.
In 2021, Ava began receiving disturbing presents like a severed hand and notes demanding she end her marriage to Nikolas, and she immediately suspected Ryan (even though he was supposedly paralyzed from the neck down!). However, it now appears that it has been Spencer trying to take revenge on his father all along!
Please join us in welcoming Chavez as the SORAS-ed Spencer and keep watching GH to see how his story continues to unfold!
