General Hospital Star Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up About Dante’s Job With The PCPD

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Dom admitted that he actually likes the fact that Dante is an employee of the Port Charles Police Department, mostly because he enjoys the steady employment! After all, there’s always something going on in this fictional town of Port Charles, right? He said, “Dante will always have a job as a cop and as long as I don’t complain about being a cop on the show, I’ll have a job, too. That is a super-big challenge. I do get frustrated, because I don’t watch a lot of TV, but every once in a while, I’ll put on NCIS or something just to see the cops actually winning, you know? And I’m like, ‘Oh, cops do win things!’ Because we never do on the show; we just don’t. And I don’t know why, really. I know it’s a soap, but to me, it doesn’t matter — daytime, prime-time, we’re all making TV and trying to make it good. Would I like to actually see him solve a case? Yeah! But I’m not losing any sleep over it.”

Dom also opened up about how great the Dante and Nathan partnership was back in the day. As many fans remember, Nathan (Ryan Paevy) was shot and killed by Peter August. He said, “You know, as it’s happening in real time, you don’t really know what people like or why they like it.”

Dom continued, “But I know when we’re doing good work, and I think we just complemented each other. Michael Easton [Finn], when he first came onto the show as McBain, he and I really loved the brief time we were playing cops together. We thought that could have been a really cool thing and we still talk all the time about how fun it was. I think people would have really dug that partnership. But with the Nathan thing, you know, he was with Maxie, and Dante was with Lulu, and we were all best friends. We were this little unit. And there was a lot of cop stuff being written at that time. There were a lot of bad guys running around. I still don’t think we solved anything, but we looked good not solving stuff!”
