General Hospital News: Did Marcus Coloma Quit The Television Industry For Good?

Did he give up on his career? That’s what a lot of General Hospital fans can’t help but wonder these days as it seems like Marcus Coloma is spending more time at home in Florida than he is in Los Angeles. The actor, who was best known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine, has been sharing a lot of Instagram videos of his new life in Sarasota, prompting many fans to wonder what’s next for the actor. Keep reading below for everything you need to know.

General Hospital News: Did Marcus Coloma Quit The Television Industry For Good?

While Marcus did admit that his forced departure from General Hospital did hurt, he probably didn’t expect for his career to flatline the way it has since he left the show. And while it’s nice to see that he’s been spending a lot of time with his daughter Coco in Florida, some of his fans can’t help but wonder if he plans on coming back to California to revive his daytime television career. Because if General Hospital doesn’t want him that doesn’t mean the other three major soaps don’t want him, either. WIth his talent and good looks, Marcus would easily find a new home in either Genoa City or Salem.

Back in February, Marcus did admit that he got the boot from the producers of General Hospital. While on the That’s Awesome podcast, Marcus said that while he didn’t expect to stay on General Hospital forever, he also didn’t expect to get fired as fast as he did. The actor put it this way, “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.”

He continued, “Now, the arc of it was interesting, is because I met you guys and 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
Excellent actor, but not a strong Nicholas Cassadine on GH. He’s perfect for the character Dr. Finn. He and Michael Easton should switch roles.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
