The role of Spencer Cassadine had big shoes to fill after Nicolas Bechtel no longer fit the role as the character had been SORASed, requiring a recast.
Nicholas Alexander Chavez has taken over as the recast for Spencer Cassadine, son of Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) and Courtney Matthews (Alicia Leigh Willis).
In a recent interview with Soap Opera News, Chavez let fans in a little on his personal life and his thoughts about working on ABC’s, General Hospital. General Hospital spoilers reveal that when asked about a future for Spencer and Trina Robinson (Sydney Mikayla), Nicholas replied, “Sprina is only a matter of time I hope!” He added, “Trina is such a special character. She and Spencer share a very specific kind of love that only she can give and receive. It’s a love that takes the form of honesty, compassion, and sincerity. She listens enthusiastically, and he tries to do the same. She’s the only person in Port Charles that can do that for Spencer.”
Nicholas Alexander Chavez described what it was like to audition for the role of Spencer Cassadine. He began staying, “When I got to the studio on the day of my audition there were between 10 and 15 other guys that they had brought in to screen test.” Among all of those, Chavez landed the role. He added, “I had to remind myself that all I can do, ever in life, is do my job to the absolute best of my ability, because it’s the only thing you can control. After my audition with Maura West, which was exhilarating, to say the least, I called my manager and my family on my walk back to my hotel. They asked how I thought it went and I remember truthfully replying, “I don’t know. It went so fast. But, I think good?”
Chavez has done a great job thus far, filling the shoes of Bechtel as Spencer. He’s playing right into the role of the mischievous and misguided son of the Dark Prince Nikolas Cassadine.
General Hospital spoilers and rumors hint Spencer and Trina’s romance hasn’t even begun but definitely isn’t over.
