General Hospital (GH) actor Kin Shriner announced on Twitter recently that Scott Baldwin would be returning to the ABC sudser soon, but he was embarrassed by his lack of airtime.

“I have a couple of shows @GeneralHospital coming up but embarrassed to continue to promote a character I have played for over 42 years is now a day player,” Shriner posted. “Thank u for your support over the years!”

Fans were quick to respond to his news. “Don’t be embarrassed. You’re an Icon everyone loves and many ppl tune in to see their faves,” one fan commented. “Always look forward to seeing Scotty on #GH Fans appreciate you, even if TPTB do NOT.”
