A couple of major General Hospital casting notes from the week:

Following six years in the role of Lucky Spencer, Greg Vaughn has been released from General Hospital. He left the following message on his Twitter page:

As of today, with sad regrets, I will no longer be apart of what has been a big part of me and my families life. GH and TPTB have... choosen to take a new direction. I THANK ALL of YOU, for the many memories we've shared and new ones to come!!! ALL MY LOVE, & BIG HUGS...

Meanwhile, Jonathan Jackson will take over the role. The actor - who appeared in an episode of One Tree Hill last year - originated the character of Lucky in 1993.

Claudia: Oh, you're in a foul mood, huh? Looking for trouble?
Sonny: You know, I have not been fair to you. I know I called you a lying whore, and all that. But hey, you know what? At least you don't pretend to be anything else.

Lucky, it's called cleavage, and it's the best weapon we've got.
