ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers indicate Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) recently opened up to ABC Soaps in Depth about the past, the present, and his other projects. He spoke in particular about something we’ve mentioned loving about soaps—the history. But he also has a good humor about it. So, what’d he have to say? Here’s what you need to know.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The past
The actor gave plenty of insight into what it was like on the soaps back in the ‘80s. Not surprisingly, he emphasized how fast-paced it is now, and how he hasn’t even met everyone on the show yet. It’s a stark reminder of how our world is today, and something we might want to keep in mind as we #stayhome. It’s about slowing down, enjoying the moment, and connecting. Even if we might need to do it differently right now.
Another thing he mentioned was how important legacy players like him are, as it’s a link to the past. And we think that is definitely the backbone of any soap. You have to have those actors and characters that can bring back different, or simpler times. And with a show like GH, there’s a lot of history. Rogers himself, the magazine acknowledge, is looking at 40 years on the show, although he downplays it a bit. Look the article up to see what he has to say about his off-and-on status.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The present
As for the now, he’s having fun. Rogers talked at length about getting to be involved in so many stories now, and how he’s getting to explore the different sides of his character. Even if he’s a DA now, Rogers talked about how there’s still a bit of a conflict with his more rebellious side.
He also got to talk about the relationship his character shares with Anna Devane (Finola Hughes). We noticed from the first moment we saw them on screen, this is a special pair. The easy banter and familiarity is obvious, and he talked a bit about why Robert acts the way he does with her sometimes. Again, check out the article for more about it. Can’t give it all away right? There’s also plenty of old and new pictures/commentary about them.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: New roles
While ‘General Hospital’ spoilers indicate he’s more of a regular fixture now, that hasn’t stopped this actor from stretching those creative muscles. He has roles on two other web series. One is The Bay, which also features other current and former soap stars. He also plays a character of a show called Studio City. Check them out to see Rogers in a different light. He mentioned the Studio City character in particular being a fun challenge.
