‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers is letting go of two important and even prominent stars on the canvas: Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer) and William DeVry (Julian Jerome). While it hasn’t been confirmed just yet, sources say that both actors are being let go from the hit ABC soap.
Emme first joined the soap back in 2013, along with William. The actor first played Derek Wells, who was later revealed to be dead mob boss Julian Jerome. Before ‘General Hospital’, William played Storm Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful. Meanwhile, Emme’s first soap role was as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Fans React To Emme Rylan And William deVry’s Reported Departures
“More cast cuts are coming,” says one insider. “People are nervous.” Of course, it didn’t take very long for fans to comment on the situation, with a lot of people expressing their dismay over seeing both Emme Rylan and William DeVry gone.
Some comments include, “’General Hospital’ needs a creative reboot. There are characters with so much potential but it’s stifled by focusing on the wrong people,” along with, “Just when it seemed like GH was turning a corner creatively, this happens. Anyway, Days, there is your Peter Blake right there. William DeVry and Cady McClain would most likely sizzle together.”
Another critic put it this way, “I’m really sad to hear Emme is leaving. Would love to see her bring some life and talent back to Y&R as Abby! The writing has been on the wall for DeVry since they had Julian hold a knife to Alexis’ throat. Feel bad for the actor but won’t be sad to see the character go. Wonder what the other exits are in this supposed blood bath. I hope the actor playing Peter is leaving too, that character is one of the worst GH has had in years.” So far the producers of ‘General Hospital’ have not made any comments about the rumors.
