General Hospital News: What Is Marcus Coloma Doing Now?

He might be gone, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten. A lot of people can’t help but wonder what’s been going on with General Hospital star Marcus Coloma (ex-Nikolas Cassadine). As many fans can recall, Marcus wasn’t given the opportunity to extend his contract and unfortunately, was given the boot from the hit ABC soap earlier this year. Because of this, Nikolas didn’t fulfill his contractual obligations to the end and did not finish filming his scenes as his character, Nikolas. Instead, it seems like he’s spending time far away from Los Angeles and the daytime television world to refocus on himself and his future. Here’s what you need to know.

General Hospital News: What Is Marcus Coloma Doing Now?

Even though Marcus is no longer on the daytime television canvas, it seems as though he’s still spending his time trying to entertain his fans and his followers on social media. He’s been sharing a lot of clips of himself on Instagram, along with one of him wishing Maurice Benard a happy birthday. He also shared a special tribute to his daughter Coco on her 14th birthday, too. Other than that, it seems like Marcus is just hanging out at home in Sarasota, Florida while waiting for the next best thing to happen for him. That, or a phone call about a new job. 

The actor recently said that while he didn’t expect to stay on General Hospital forever, he also didn’t expect to leave so quickly. He said, “I was like, I’m going to do it for three years. I want to walk out of this place a better actor. I want to be more confident; I want to be more comfortable on set; I want to try a lot of different things. And I knew I was going to be leaving in three years.”

Marcus also said there were many aspects that he loved about the job. He said, “I met all of the other cast and fell in love with the crew and everybody along with it. And so, two-and-a-half years in, you’re like, Ooh, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated because I kind of love a lot of things about this, even though it’s like you said, it could be a golden-handcuffs situation for some people. But for me, so I knew that the end was coming, and now it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’ There was no negotiation or anything like that. And all I can say to that is, I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will. It didn’t feel like I got fired; it just felt like, I don’t know.”

Marcus Coloma was great on General Hospital. First Marcus and now Roger Howarth. These were two great actors and GH should have kept them. What is going on? I am a sad viewer.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
