…All aboard! General Hospital often welcomes new faces to the cast family. With new faces comes new talent, so we embrace the addition. However, from time to time a newbie arrives and doesn’t really sit well with the audience. I think it’s safe to say that’s not the case for Evan Hofer.

General Hospital news reports confirm that GH’s newest good-hearted bad boy is a Kansas native. Evan’s older sister wanted to pursue a career in entertainment, so when he was around 14-15 years old, Evan’s family moved out to California. In an interview, Evan Hofer reveals what inspired him to act, and explained the early days of his pursuit.

Hofer refers back to his sister who wanted to pursue he career in music. It was then that his family moved from Kansas to Cali, opening up opportunities for Evan as well. When Evan was around 14, his sister’s interest lead him down his own path. “She [sister] started to do plays… and I just wanted to spend time with her,” he admitted, “so I got into it as well, just so I could hang out with her. It all worked out well, and I fell in love with it.”

Evan Hofer Reveals GH Experience

GH spoilers reveal Hofer has had experience in recurring Disney roles, such as in Disney’s Kickin’ It. Hofer admitted that he auditioned for other soap roles, along with other GH roles. Thankfully, Dex Heller was the perfect fit. He joined GH on May 5th, 2022. Hofer reveals he’s grateful for his experience. “I am really grateful that so much of my stuff early on was with Mo,” he states. “This is a new medium for me and I’ve been able to learn from him. Mo really took me under his wing on day one. I actually found out after I met him the first day we worked together that we’ve both worked with Frances Fisher [ex-Suzette, Guiding Light], who is a wonderful, spectacular actor that I learned a ton from when I worked with her a few years ago. She told me, ‘You’re working with Maurice! I know Maurice! We did a movie together [Lucy & Desi: Before The Laughter]!’ It kind of became a great connection for Mo and me.”
