Soap Cities exclusively learned actor Bryan Craig, who played Sonny and Carly’s son Morgan Corinthos on General Hospital, wants to come back to the show that earned him a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. Craig made his pronouncement at the GH Fantasy Weekend at West Palm Beach on Saturday.
Bryan Craig, who was received warmly by his fans and fellow actors on the Improv Stage in WPB, said he “would love to come back” to General Hospital. Bryan Craig received a big ovation in the audience for his startling pronouncement! He added if asked, he would come back. “It’s a scheduling thing,” he noted. It’s also “a story thing.” His return would also depend on what the writers wanted and if there would be a “reason to bring him back.” Robert Palmer Watkins, who acted as emcee at the event and plays Dillon Quartermaine on General Hospital, observed that “they did not find a body.”
In true soap fashion, Bryan Craig’s (aka Morgan) body was never found after a car explosion meant for Julian Jerome threw Morgan over the cliff. His TV mom, played by Laura Wright (Carly) was definitely open to her son Morgan’s return as well. When asked whom he thought had killed him, Bryan Craig pointed the finger at Will DeVry (who plays Julian Jerome) and the audience laughed.
Bryan Craig was also lauded on stage for bringing attention to bipolar disease and raising awareness for mental health in his portrayal of Morgan, which landed him with a Daytime Emmy as noted above. Bryan Craig noted the storyline “was exhausting” for him because in order to play the storyline he had to get his head into “that place,” even if he was in a good mood. In other words, the storyline took a toll on the actor, and it was hard to separate the role when Bryan Craig would finish acting for the day.
When told by one fan how much his portrayal of Morgan’s bipolar storyline meant to him, the actor thanked the fan and took the time to ask how the fan was doing. It just goes to show how soap actors do care about the well-being of their fans!
When it came to Bryan Craig’s personal life, Laura Wright came to his aid when one nosey fan asked when he was getting married. He replied, “I don’t know,” while Wright said “it was no one’s business!” We at Soap Cities totally agree it’s no one’s business but his own!
