GH Star Bradford Anderson Issues Gracious Apology to Fans


GH mega-fan fave, Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli) took to social media to convey a sweet mea culpa to his legion of fans.

Last Minute Pressures

Anderson was set to make one of his welcome visits back to Port Charles. Spinelli had to come to Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) aid again, after all.

Last week GH announced the surprise, temporary recast of the role with soap alum Blake Berris (ex-Nick Fallon, “Days of Our Lives”). As always,  GH casting director Mark Teschner did an amazing job finding an the perfect person to replace an actor who has an usual and quite specific look.

Anderson is Just Plain Kind

We at Soap Cities doubt many fans were holding a grudge against Anderson for not being able to appear in Port Charles. But Anderson is just one of those guys who will always be thoughtful and considerate. Anyone whose been to an Anderson fan event knows the actor goes out of his way to please his fans. Scroll down to see his Facebook post.

A GH Classic

Anderson originated the role of  the idiosyncratic and unforgettable Damian Spinelli in 2006. It’s hard to imagine anyone else performing Spinelli’s nervous, Shakespearean speech patterns and sheepish looks. He has been nominated for five Daytime Emmy awards for his work on the ABC sudser.

Anderson has numerous other television, film, and theater credits under his belt. He even offers a service that coaches actors and others who must speak in front of an audience. Visit his website for the details, as he can coach you remotely even if you’re not in Los Angeles!
