Tristan Rogers Will Bring Robert Scorpio Back To General Hospital
General Hospital has been celebrating its 50th anniversary this season by bringing in some old cast members (like James Franco, earlier this year) as a gift to fans, the latest of which is Tristan Rogers, 66, who plays Robert Scorpio on the show."
Rogers will return on the November 15 episode of General Hospital, after having a brief stint earlier this year, when he was called on the show after the death of his onscreen daughter, Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough). He left again in a storyline in which Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) encouraged him to go looking for his supposed son, Ethan (Nathan Parsons), in order to give him a reason to live, reports Examiner.
Rogers, who was reportedly disappointed with his short return after the onscreen death of Robin, is happy to come back. "I am feeling really good right now!" he told Soap Opera Digest. "My connection to GH and to this character is so strong. I think the fans will see a Robert who is the same, but also different … and there's a reason for that difference. I was very excited about the story when it was explained to me."
The biggest questions on fans' minds now that the news has been confirmed is, how will Robert react when he finds out Luke lied to him about Ethan being his son … and what will Robert do when he finds out about Luke's involvement with his own legendary love, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)?
Check out Rogers' return to GH on ABC on November 15.
