No General Hospital spoilers prepared us for this:
Scott Reeves is joining the cast of the drama. The actor will debut in December as Steven Lars Webber, a character last portrayed by Shaun Benson in 2005.
According to TV Guide Magazine, Webber will be thrown into a storyline involving his half-sister, Liz, and the two men in her life: Lucky and Nikolas.
Reeves won't be a series regular, but the recurring role is ideal for the actor and country music artist, who spent a decade as Ryan McNeil on The Young and the Restless.
“I’m still writing music and still recording but I really got hungry for acting again,” said Reeves. “I’ve always had a great respect for General Hospital so I kinda courted them. It was the one show I most wanted to be on.
Steve Burton and I are best friends – we’re literally like brothers – and I just love the people over there. My agent put out feelers and [GH casting director] Mark Teschner called back. They had a role. The timing was perfect.”
