General Hospital News And Spoilers: Kin Shriner Confirms GH Exit, Scotty Baldwin Written Off!

Kin Shriner leaves GH as Scotty Baldwin

Kin Shriner leaves GH as Scotty Baldwin! Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) found love again with Scott Baldwin. They both bonded over losing Franco (Roger Howarth), as Liesl was close friends with Scotty’s son. Although she blamed him in part for adding to her anguish, Scott was by Liesl’s side as she grieved for her daughter, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud).

GH news reports reveal that Shriner began his run as Scotty Baldwin back in 1977. The actor who originated the role made the character his own with his quick-witted comments and sarcastic banter. He went on to become part of one of the most memorable and tragic romance stories in daytime. He and Shell Danielson knocked Dominique Stanton’s love and loss story out of the park. Sadly, General Hospital Blog confirms that actor Kin Shriner has been let go from ABC’s General Hospital.

Kin Shriner Leaves GH- Scotty Baldwin Written Off!

In a recent tweet, Shriner announced that his character was written off of the General Hospital script. Shockingly, the daytime TV vet shared the news late Tuesday night via Twitter. GH spoilers and news reports reveal that the fans aren’t the only ones in shock over the news. As it turns out, Kin Shriner is as also taken by surprise, and not the good kind! Why did the writers write Scotty Baldwin off the canvas? Well, we aren’t quite sure. However, rest assured we will keep fans posted on any new developments.

Genie Francis Signs Contract with GH?

The rumor around Twitter is that Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) has signed a contract with General Hospital. If this is true, it looks like there will be a lot more potential for her story. Right now, we know she is here to be with her daughter, as they wait for the birth of  (what they think is) Dante and Lulu’s child that Maxie is carrying. She seems very interested in Luke’s life and was on the phone with a mystery person telling them they will go ahead with their plans. Who is Laura talking to? What are her plans? If Laura is staying in Port Charles longer than just to appease us for the 50th anniversary of GH, there is potential for her to have lasting relationships with current PC residents. Luke included. Since Anna and Luke called it quits, Luke may be open to getting closer to Laura once again. As of right now, we don’t know what Laura wants. It seemed like she was really concerned with Luke’s love life, and looked almost jealous when she saw him with Anna. But who knows. Maybe she was just checking to make sure he was happy with another woman before she proceeds to be happy with someone else. Whatever happens, I am happy to see Laura back in Port Charles, reuniting with all her loved ones!
