Tristan Rogers Returns to General Hospital on November 15!


Tristan Rogers is returning to his General Hospital stomping grounds. Rogers will reprise the role as Robert Scorpio on November 15. Said the popular actor to Soap Opera Digest:

"I am feeling really good right now! My connection to GH and to this character is so strong. I think the fans will see a Robert who is the same, but also different … and there's a reason for that difference. I was very excited about the story when it was explained to me."


The Young and the Restless fans had been wondering if Rogers would be reprising the role of Aussie mobster Colin Atkinson, opposite Jess Walton (Jill).  No word on how this will effect that possibility.

    Welcome back and thank goodness!! This version of Anna seeming to be hoodwinked by “Pod-Duke” is ridiculous. Robert being back should snap her out of it, not to mention speed up the search for Robin. In addition FV should be working on getting GF back (if he isn’t already!)… 0:)

    I wonder if ABC has upped the budget since Frank has taken over. It’s crazy… and awesome… that so many actors from the past are coming back. The cast of GH just keeps growing and growing. Wonder too if these actors are just grabbing the opportunities at whatever pay is being offered since there is so few soaps left.

    I doubt it, but FV is known for being a miracle worker when it comes to the budget. He knows how to make things happen with what he has.

    I’m sure FV and ABC have figured out a way to work the budget to their advantage. I would imagine they and Ron have worked it so airtime will be tailored to allow them to not go over budget.

    Otherwise, I am excited. It is awesome to see so many vets on screen at the same time. Friday had scenes with Tracy/Monica running parallel to scenes with Duke and Anna. Would have never seen that under the last regime.

    I’m sure the vets are coming back at greatly reduced salaries. After years of not working in soaps, they must realize a steady job is better than not working.

    Great news! Robert Scorpio is sorely missed in Port Charles right about now. He needs to claim his rightful place beside Anna and get Luke off that storyline.

    Also happy for Tristan Rogers. He will be so much better off in General Hospital than that sorry excuse for a show, YR.

    This is some great news!! Anna needs him already. I hope he can figure out what Duke is really up to and he and Anna can find their daughter.

    GH, please keep TR. He is a favored vet and much needed long term on the show.

    Robert Scorpio is one of my all time favorites on this show. I could not be happier. I can’t wait to see Anna, Duke and Robert in scenes again. Just keep Luke out of it please….I know that is not going to happen, but at least Robert makes Luke bearable for me,

    OK so this is making me think even more that it is bye bye MB. I know he is in contract talks and with all these big names back and him not actually having a story, and based on interviews KSu showing she has zero interest in Kate or Skate (thank God because they both suck, well so does KSu but whatever) and the return of AJ and obvious story of him getting his son back finally. I think FV/RC is setting up a Sason free GH.

    And since the ratings hit the highest they reached since Brenda was kidnapped after the S&B wedding with SB’s Jason being killed I think its been proven the unholy trio leaving isn’t going to hurt GH.

    I am also super excited to have TR back and hope we get lots of TR and JT scenes. I love their interactions.

    I am really hoping that RC/FV have learned from the flack that they received from Robin’s death/exit and Robert’s last visit and will handle it better. I am really hoping they have learned a lesson.

    “AJ getting his son back”? Michael is well over 18 now, he’s nobody’s property.

    And for all this talk of veterans, let’s please remember that Steve Burton was a veteran and Maurice Bernard has nearly 20 years in as well. But all the time they spent working on this show, as well as cheerleading for it when it was in the toilet is apparently lost on this crowd.

    Also, vets are being used more than ever! Monica, Tracy and Alexis are being prominently used. Anna is back. I think it’s time to stop complaining about the lack of respect for the vets.

    You’re kidding, right? You’re sticking up for MB and SB, who hogged so much screen time, at the expense of other vets? Now the shoe is on the other foot, so I hope they like it. Well apparently SB didn’t.

    Yeah!

    Unfortunately, Sonny, Jason, and Carly ate the show for way too long and even though the actors are not at fault (I blame Guza, JFP, Frons and GW)it’s time to place those three on the back burner. I think SBu must have realized that the times of Guza, Frons, JFP and GW are gone.

    I just hope as was posted that the writing isn’t the same as when he came back before and ran out on his daughter’s funeral to chase a son he knew for all of five minutes; then sent a letter. As a fan of Robert Scorpio this was cold and something I never would have expected.

    If he can KO the horrible pairing of Luke and Anna and mix it up with Duke its all good. As for the writing team learning a lesson; I don’t think they care what fans think or respond to if you like it “I hope you enjoy the ride” and if you don’t too bad. Cuz real fans watch whether they like it or not. I try to watch what I don’t like to see how it plays out but sometimes its really hard to.

    Whatever the case, I’m hoping the Robin demise storyline get the attention and excessive air that the Jason and Sam show has over the last four years hoepfully Robert’s entry facilitates more attention to more (story) beats being played so I’m looking forward to it.

Lets get genie to return and they can spend the time arresting Scummy for half of the things he has done. Should get rid of him permanently.Find jasons body and bury it.Then Sam can be with Mc bain.

    Frank may have the magic touch, but Ron is sure to f-it up! Robert’s previous departure (missing Robin’s funeral!) was pathetic. Felicia’s return has been uneventful. Duke’s is almost as awful as Brenda’s (I know- Guza was responsible for that atrocity) last return. I was enjoying most of Anna’s return until Pod-Duke was thrown into the mix and Ron turned the only intelligent female character left on the show into another tragic idiot like the rest of them. I was LOVING the returns of both Jerry and Jasper Jacks and was excited to watch the show again for the first time in years…and then the Sam’s stupid “What if?” and her potted-baby storyline abruptly ended the toxic water storyline with enough holes to drive a Mack truck through it. I’m not getting my hopes up about about AJ…what a waste killing off Jason before his return. Don’t get me started on Jason’s exit- beyond horribly written. It seems to me that Frank is throwing anything and everything at the wall hoping something will stick. Unfortunately the only thing that seems to be sticking whether we like it or not is the influx of OLTL characters and their carry-over storylines.

    Hear, hear! I don’t know what RC/FV were smoking when they penned Robert’s last return. But, that plot left me staring at the screen in disbelief and doubting this new GH regime. So not Robert. No way he would blow off Robin’s funeral for Ethan. Hopefully this story rights that wrong.

    But, I’m cautious like you Marland Fan. I’m hoping for the best but..we’ll see.
