Réal Andrews Opens up About His First Day Back at GH (EXCLUSIVE)


With 16 years having passed since the last time he’d appeared on GENERAL HOSPITAL as Taggert, Réal Andrews admitted to Soaps In Depth he had some jitters! “Emotionally, I was a wreck,” admitted the actor of his recent return. “I was so excited. But all of a sudden, I started to get really nervous — and I got more and more nervous as I got closer. I was like, ‘Dude, what is going on with you?’”

Once Andrews walked into the GH studio, however, everything shifted. “It was a blessing,” he grinned. “My first scenes were with Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Steve Burton (Jason), and then I was back in the flow. Some of the same crew members and cameramen are still there. It was like walking into a time warp. It was really crazy. It’s like nobody had changed — they didn’t age or anything. It was really fun and cool. Everybody was excited that I was back, and that felt good, too.”
