General Hospital News: Johnny Wactor Shares a Heartfelt Message With His Fans

I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character.”
He continued, “I’ve always said that the fans of GH are the greatest fans in the world. I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that. The show’s been going on for almost 60 years. 252 episodes a year and you guys tune in every week. And you care. You care about the story and you care about the characters. And my character’s no different. I’m so lucky to have been on this show.”
Johnny also added, “Truly. As an actor, we’re lucky any time we get a job. And to be on a show that has a fanbase that is this loyal and cares this much, I’m truly gonna miss it. I’m gonna miss ‘y’all’s comments and your opinions of what the characters should do or what the writers should do. It’s really a unique experience. We get to show up and bring these stories to life, bring these characters to life, and it just makes our job that much sweeter. It’s already the coolest job in the world to get to act. And to see how much you guys care… I’m just so blessed and I’m gonna miss you guys.”
