Michael E. Knight — a three-time Daytime Emmy winner who is best known for playing Tad Martin on All My Children from 1982 to 2011 — is joining the cast of General Hospital.
“GH is super-excited to announce Michael E. Knight will be joining GENERAL HOSPITAL!” a show rep confirmed to Soap Opera Digest.
Knight’s most recent role was a recurring one on The Young and the Restless playing Dr. Simon Neville from 2015 to 2016.
There is no word yet on who he will be playing on General Hospital; however, James Patrick Stewart — who plays Valentin on the soap — is already excited to have the veteran soap opera actor join the cast.
“I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him,” Stewart said.
