First Tamara Braun (ex-Carly) from General Hospital landed a new role on Days Of Our Lives, now it appears another GH alum is moving to Salem! Jason Gerhardt who just finished the role of Cooper Barrett, mentioned in a recent interview that he is in talks with Days Of Our Lives to star in a new role. Another loss for GH and a gain for Days!
This is an excerpt from the interview with Jason:
"I did have an audition, and we're looking... we've been in talks with Days of Our Lives a little bit, so who knows if that's going to happen. But, we'll see. You know? You never know what's going to happen, and it's definitely very preliminary and all that, so you never know. The only thing I know is, I believe it's a new character. And right now, I think they -- they're looking at possibly going a little bit older. But if they want to go younger and they want me to play it, then heck... I'd be open for the opportunity. But it'd be a young doctor, I think, that's coming on the show. That's all that I know! Maybe I said too much, but I don't know."
No word yet to the character's name. Also no news yet to when or if Gerhardt's character will arrive on screen. We will keep you updated once we learn more and get an official announcement from the show! Gerhardt joined General Hospital a year ago (February 2007) in the role of Cooper Barrett and had been involved with Maxie, Lulu, and Logan group. This week Coop was found dead in Port Charles, another victim of the serial killer plaguing the city.
