Nathan Parsons May Be Leaving 'GH'

By December 20, 2011

Follow me on:


Nathan Parsons (Ethan) is possibly leaving General Hospital.

Though it hasn't been officially announced, last month, in an interview with Michael Logan, Parsons was asked about his contract coming up for renewal now that he's in the middle of a storyline with the Woman in White. He commented, "The timing's not the best....I guess we'll have to sit down and talk."

On Twitter, Julie Marie Berman indicated that she was sad Parsons was leaving, stating that his talent was wasted. So somebody knows something, and I expect there will be an announcement soon.

Like other actors on the show, Parsons has been underutilized. He certainly could have been used in a more interesting manner. Meanwhile, that Spencer family is sure thinning out.

I can’t help but wonder if he is leaving by chose or by pink slip. Nathan has grown as an actor since coming on the show.
I hope he takes ‘the women in white’ with him.

He should stick around. The show will get as great as Wendy Riche and Paul Rauch had it once the new executive producer and head writer take over. The people that should go are: Olivia, Anthony, Kate and Spinelli.

Nathan’s character is useless. It was a mistake bringing him on as Lukes son. I hope he takes lady in white with him when he leaves. Soon.
NOT sure if Nathan is leaving on his own yet though…he may not have had a choice.

Spinelli should have left 5 years ago.

LOVE NuKate. Just not with SonnyBoy.

I don’t agree about Spinelli, they just need to make him normal instead of such a flake. He needs to start calling people by their names, not silly nicknames–he needs to act his age. I think he is good with Maxie and could be better if they let him be a normal person, ditto in his friendship with Jason. YES, get rid of Olivia and Anthony! And Padilla (sp?) as well–the actress is so wooden and boring. Nathan has such potential if they would just write for him.

Your right Peggy. Those names he calls everyone! (Spinelli)are ridiculous to listen to! He is a good actor though!

Just read on GH2 that Nathan may not leave now. Sounds like it was his decision and now he is having 2nd thoughts.
I believe his contract was up, and he didn’t want to be part of a sinking ship. Now that the show is changing course (hopefully) he may stay. I still hope the lady in white leaves!

I love Spinelli but I agree that its time for him to be normal. I love Anthony’s humor. I hope that they build up his character. Where is Helena?!!!

I like the way the old Spinelli was (Computer Geek). Bring that back and some normalness.

UPDATE. He is gone. Done. Off the set

I like Ethan now…I didnt when he first came to GH. He is much better now. I also like Anthony and Spinelli…I would LOVE if they got rid of Sonny!

I am not complaining at least the show is still “standing” unlike the rest of the soaps … All my Children and next, One Life to Live… I hope GH makes it through 2012 and they don’t replace it with yet another talk show…. JMHO.

Billbeagle, I think you’re the only person who thinks like me about Sonny. You truly made my day(thank you). With the new “TEAM” coming to GH things should pick up. We might get some real cops in Port Charles. Can someone please tell me why Berman won an Emmy over Storm? 2X. She can leave too.

I like Nathan. I would hate to see him go. I think the character has all the potential that Anthony Geary had when he cam on. nathan could really rise as a star on GH. I hate all the people leaving (Jackson, Lexi, etc.). I want the old Spinelli back. I love the geek and the names. i would just like to see him get a little move savvy. They have never told us his backstory. I was hoping he would be one of Sonny’s children. that would have been funny since Sonny hates him. I hope the new producers and writers give us the GH that was dramatic and fascinating, and filled with characters whose life I cared about. Beef up Mack’s role. He is a very sexy man… good writers could write a caper for Lukes sons. Imagine Lucky and Nathan saving the world from Helena or some new foe. They are smart, sexy and funny. Lukes son’s should not be boring. there is a history here. Use it.

I have grown very tired of the mob show, oh sorry, i mean General Hospital. The old writer seemed to focus only on certain characters and left all the other wonderful actors/characters in the wind. I thought that maybe this new writer would be different. I guess I was wrong, instead of actually giving those negleted characters a meater storyline, he chooses to bring on new characters to focus on and possibly later forget. Oh no wait they are tied to the mob story, so that might actually have a chance. Parsons who has become a wonderful part of the show has actually been one of the only reasons I have continued watching the show. I would have liked to have seen him take on some kind of adventure (Luke/Laura) type of storyline. At least he was a little more refreshing than the whiny, self rightous characters focused all in the mob character storylines over the last few years. So sadly, I think with the departure of Parsons will be this once loyal fans departure from watching the show before any other writer sends it to its final resting place in soap history.
