Looks like the walls have finally closed on on Vincent Irizarry’s David Chow. The verteran daytime actor will be leaving his role as the newly married husband and gambling addict of Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). No word yet on when his last air date is and the official word came via Irizarry’s official My Space page. Now that he’s leaving Genoa City, maybe Vincent’s other character Nick McHenry (Guiding Light) will turn up in Springfield or even Port Charles as David to shoot the breeze with his ex-wife Anna Devane (Finola Hughes). Here’s hoping another soap will pick up this talented actor. 18 Responses daisyclover1938 July 1, 2008 Let’s get him on a show that will use him to his fullest potential!!! I LOVE VI and will follow him wherever he goes Log in to Reply cashton July 1, 2008 Wow – and he killed Ji-Min. What a waste of a talented actor in this weak spineless role. Log in to Reply elbugten July 1, 2008 Y&R’s loss is some other lucky soaps gain. Vincent Irizarry needs to be in a soap, ANY soap. He is too good an actor to languish by the wayside. Someone needs to snap him up, pronto. I’d love to see him back on AMC, although David hardly has any family left there. I alon like the idea of him following Anna to Port Charles. Maybe once he’s there (and Anna goes back to spying again) he could hook up with Monica (a la her Pierce Dorman days) or even Alexis. Woudln’t that be a hot triangle? I’d tune in to watch Nancy Lee Grahn and Vincent Irizarry in scenes together. Throw Jane Elliot and Tony Geary in the mix, and you’ve got dynamite. So many s/l possibilities. Please, Soap Gods, hear my prayer! Log in to Reply FierceBish July 1, 2008 i always found his character incredibly boring & 1 sided. i’m not a ~*wreck*~ that he’s leaving. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr July 1, 2008 Long live Lujack! VI is exactly what GL would need to start a creative s/l turnaround. Let’s hope they seriously consider bringinging on this vet! Log in to Reply sweetiepie July 1, 2008 I like Victor Irrazary, but I am sorry, he had absolutely no chemistry with Melody. Seriously, they were truly boring. I always thought David had something to do with Ji Mins death, so at least let this play out so we can close out this s/l at last. Log in to Reply Jorpa July 1, 2008 I love VI, but I’m glad to see him leave Y&R. He was totally wasted as an actor there. GL does need him, but he would be just as wasted there as Y&R if not more. I hope one of the ABC soaps picks him up. I wouldn’t mind seeing him on Days either. Log in to Reply THEBEST July 2, 2008 The only way I would want him back on AMC is if a very much alive Dixie is in tow. ***///Living In The World Of Soaps Since 1985\\\*** Log in to Reply KingTV July 2, 2008 I think it’s perfect. I love Vincent Irrizarry as an actor but David Chow is part of LML’s garbage heap that she dumped on the show. It is very wise and smart for Maria and the producers to have made this decision. david was a poorly fleshed out character from the beginning. We never really got to know him and finding out he’s this gambling addict who married Nikki to save his hide has been a waste of time. Now we know he killed Ji-Min, he can wither go to jail or be murdered and start a really good murder mystery on the show because there are plenty of suspects to be had. Or maybe, he will go psucho and kidnap Nikki for ransom and Paul/Victor will come to her rescue. If he’s gonna go, then they should do it in some dramatic fashion and give the show some story to leave with. I actually applaud this and know that he will have no problem getting a job on another soap fast. But, thank you lordy, David Chow is gone! Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville July 2, 2008 And really…can I get used to the name Nikki Chow? No way! Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 2, 2008 "And really…can I get used to the name Nikki Chow? No way!" LMAO! Mike I don’t think anyone including the writers were able to get behind that name hence Nikki still being called, Nicole Newman. Log in to Reply Melodie July 2, 2008 The Soap Gods do answer prayers! VI is a fantastic actor but let’s be real, the character of David Chow is awful! I can’t wait until he leaves. Now that Vincent is free, hopefully Ellen Wheeler uses the eighth of a brain she has left and snatches him up for GL. We sure could use him over there! Log in to Reply Rockets GL July 2, 2008 It’s time for him to come home to GL and save those Spauldings (more of Marj Dusay as well) since Dinah/Bill has taken over the mansion and Spaulding Enterprises. What a great storyline potential. Log in to Reply muze July 2, 2008 I think Wheeler et al want GL to fail and they’ll never bring back VI or Rick Hearst. And Hearst, despite his waste of time job with GH, knows GL is a career killer. I’d love to see a candid interview with VI so we can find out what he was told about this character to begin with. What were the plans? I’d bet everything I own that they just made his character up as they went along. And I’m annoyed that they started the Ji Min story with no idea of who killed him. This was the inevitable way to wrap up Chow and Ji Min, which is good, but the story still bugs me because it should’ve lead to Victor’s downfall. We should be witnessing Victor clawing back to the power from the bottom. He lost his company, his family, his money and his freedom for a bit. Then after a 2 year arc he can get back what he lost. In the meantime his character is reinvented a bit. Instead we got this bullshit Sabrina s/l. Big deal.

The Daytime Diva, Daytime Confidential~ ABC Edition, View from the Recliners Edge Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 1, 2008 It does look like he bumped Ji-Min off doesn’t it? Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 2, 2008 "Maybe he can be THE REAL Jerry Jacks?" Belinda you watch yourself with that type of talk! *LOL* Now I feel for VI but the ONLY Jerry for me is Julian Stone! Bring him back. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
