General Hospital News And Spoilers: GH’s David Lautman (Slimy Reporter, Smoltz) Credits Nancy Lee Grahn, “He could be like, my quirky sidekick!”

David Lautman debuted as the newest, slimy gossip columnist, Smoltz, back in February. He was set to write a piece on Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) and how she destroyed the marriage between Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright).

General Hospital recaps recall Smoltz walking into the office of Alexis Davis at, The Invader, presenting the idea to the woman running the show. Alexis rejected his story due to the nature of the topic and how it would effect certain people in Port Charles.

General Hospital news reports reveal that Lautman credits Nancy for his recurring role on the ABC soap opera, after she spoke out, expressing her likeness toward the actor and the role he portrayed.

Lautman complimented Grahn in a recent interview with Soap Opera Digest. The newcomer admits, “First off, she is an extraordinarily talented actress who has a great habit of making her scene partners look like rock stars, which clearly has been substantiated by her multiple Emmy Award wins.”

David Lautman went on to disclose that when he first came to the set of General Hospital, Nancy was a fan from the start. He revealed Nancy’s statement regarding her thoughts on his work. Lautman disclosed that Nancy confessed her liking to Lautman in front of the cast and crew, revealing, “I love this guy, we gotta bring him back! He could be like, my quirky sidekick.’ I jokingly volleyed back, saying, ‘That sounds good to me, I’m down for anything. I can do light dusting around the office, organize files, whatever you need, Alexis!’”

General Hospital news confirms Lautman was called back for more scenes, though his scenes alongside Alexis have remained few. He went on to speak highly of his onscreen chemistry with the Emmy winner, revealing, “I think right from the get-go we had great chemistry together and the scenes seemed to click,” he reflected. “Part of that could be attributed to the fact that Nancy is really great at making sure we find the time to speed-read our scenes together a bunch of times before shooting so we really get the rhythm, words, and blocking of the scenes in our bones.”

General Hospital rumors suggest that Smoltz’s work isn’t done, as there will be much more to report in while the woolen of Port Charles live through their daily dramas.
