General Hospital Spoilers: Josh Kelly Reveals How He Landed His GH Role

Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is the newest mystery man to land in Port Charles. He made quite a splash at the Metro Court pool and left an unforgettable impression on one intelligent woman in particular.

General Hospital news reports confirm that OLTL alum Josh Kelly sat down with Soap Opera Digest about his new role as Cody Bell on ABC’s General Hospital.

Kelly told the news outlet that he was “missed working regularly,” after working on other projects. Pre-Covid, Kelly reveals he shot a pilot but was put on hold due to the worldly circumstances. Josh explained, “I’ve had a lot of fun doing other projects, but these last two years, I shot a pilot and then it was on hold throughout COVID. Also, I’ve had to go [on location] to Memphis or Albuquerque or Atlanta and I love traveling, but my home is in Los Angeles and I’ve never gotten to work here. I also missed being part of a little acting troupe family.”

General Hospital spoilers reveal Josh then reached out to Frank Valentini, his former boss at One Life To Live, expressing interest in working at GH. His contact with GH’s Executive Producer was well accepted. Josh Kelly described his conversation with Valentini. He said, “He was like, ‘Are you serious? You’d have to do a contract,’” Kelly recalled. “They were like, ‘We’re gonna come up with a cool character for you’ — and they did!”

General Hospital spoilers indicate there is a colorful future for Kelly’s role as Cody Bell. He admits he is excited to be on contract with the iconic daytime drama. He reflected on his time at OLTL, and explained that he is happy to fulfill a contact since his previous contract with the ABC’s cancelled soap was cut short.

We are eager to see where things lead as Cody settles in to Port Charles, forming new bonds and maintaining his old friendships.
