General Hospital (GH) has been on the air for an incredible 53 years and much of the show’s popularity is due to some amazing acting talents. While some GH actors have used the soap as a stepping stone to move onto bigger and brighter things in Hollywood (i.e. John Stamos, former Blackie Parrish and Jack Wagner, former Frisco Jones), others have stayed for the long haul and have enjoyed some pretty successful soap opera careers. Regardless of where an actor works (whether it is prime time or daytime), talent is talent. Below are 10 of the best GH actors the daytime drama has seen over the years.
10. Tristan Rogers
Fans of both GH and Young and the Restless (Y&R) have been treated to a lot of Tristan Rogers. The accomplished actor has been pulling double duty on both popular daytime soaps. For over three decades, Rogers has entertained GH fans (on and off) as the loveable, hilarious, and stealth super spy Robert Scorpio. Rogers entered the role in 1980 and almost instantly began charming fans, as well as Holly Sutton. While Rogers has 35 years of soap stardom under his belt, he doesn’t seem to be slowing down one the bit. The actor can currently be seen on GH as Scorpio, as well as the Y&R as Colin Atkinson.Jill Johnson/JPI
