Please join us in wishing GENERAL HOSPITAL star William Lipton (Cameron) a very speedy recovery as he is undergoing surgery to have his tonsils removed! The young performer shared a selfie in his Instagram stories on Jan 7 that he took around 6 a.m. PT in his hospital gown and mask. “Tonsils will be out soon!” he captioned the image, with a party popper emoji to celebrate.
A tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure performed on people who have recurring tonsillitis, throat infections, or obstructive sleep apnea. Although Lipton hasn’t revealed exactly why he’s having his tonsils out, we’re sure he’ll be right as rain in no time. And while the surgery is more commonly performed on children, teens and adults can also have their tonsils removed later in life.
Lipton took over the role of Cameron Webber back in August 2018 when Liz and Zander’s son was aged into a teenager. He stepped in after actor Cade McWatt had been cast but only aired in two episodes. After a dramatic childhood, Cameron’s teen years proved just as exciting as he found himself falling for Josslyn (even though she was in love with Oscar), accepting Franco into their family only to lose him in a brutal murder, and trying to shoot Jason for the crime!
In real life, Lipton has found himself nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards during his time on GH, once for Outstanding Younger Actor, and once for Outstanding Original Song for his composition “North Star.” The talented young man is currently attending the Thornton School of Music at USC while also balancing his work on the soap.
We’re sure Lipton will be back at his studies and working on GH very soon, and while he’s recovering from his tonsillectomy, hopefully, he’ll enjoy lots and lots of ice cream! (In fact, by the time we published this story late in the day, he should already be back home resting!) Get well soon!
