We have good General Hospital news to share with you dear Soap Cities readers–about William deVry!
Three’s The Charm
In an exclusive interview, William DeVry revealed he has signed a multi-year contract to stay in Port Charles! The interview was conducted today by our soap colleague Michael Thomas at Soap Opera Intel.
“It’s a 3 year contract. Looking forward to it because I think we all believe there is a TON more story to tell. With Alexis, Sonny (future allies?), Sam, Lucas, Leo, both Olivias, 2 Jasons. Can’t wait!” deVry trilled.
Following his lengthy contract negotiations, deVry should be on most likely in time for November Sweeps! “I can’t say when I will be back on air, but I get back to taping mid-October. By then there will be a proper story to tell for Julian without having the writer rush through something.”
It seems like William has thought some of his storyline possibilities through! Re: Julian and Sonny possibly becoming allies in the future and the Tale of 2 Jasons storyline, deVry mused, “That’s the intriguing question. ‘What will happen? Who will need whose help? Who will turn to whom when the chips are down?!’”
Most importantly, we of course want to know what will become of Julexis?! “I think Julian knows that being a couple again with Alexis is almost out of his hands. I think he knows, that ultimately, he needs help. He needs proof, and not just his words; he was squeezed into a no win situation.” In other words, dear readers, Julian’s actions will have to speak LOUDER than his words!
deVry admits it will be a long hill battle to reunite with Alexis. “He needs help now. Where that help will ultimately come from his the million dollar question.”
Did you know William is a GH fan just like us, dear readers?! He even gives Emmy advice to his fellow co-stars! “I already texted Rebecca Budig (Hayden) and told her that her scenes this past Friday with Michael Easton (Dr. Finn) were GOLD, where she comes clean about what she did with the hospital’s money.
A Little Hiatus
While we are glad to have Will back at GH, that did not stop our fan favorite from auditiong for other roles! Any luck? He “got close on almost every audition. But none came through” Nevertheless, he has “two months to book some other work right now,” while he waits to tape GH!
Well dear readers, we know it is not going to be an easy wait, but aren’t you happy deVry will be sticking around Port Chuck for a long while?! Are you looking forward to Julian and Alexis getting together again?!
