From Tiffany, to the Peacock, to the House of Mouse, daytime soap opera casting news is on fire right about now! On the heels of my scoop that Steve Burton may be out at General Hospital, comes a rumor from Soap Opera Network that ousted Days of Our Lives star Ian Buchanan could be on his way back to the sudser. Reported SON:
Rumor has it that Ian Buchanan, who just completed his run on NBC’s “Days of our Lives” yesterday as Ian McAllister, is heading back to ABC’s “General Hospital” after a 23-year absence.
Buchanan shot to soap opera fame playing mobster Duke Lavery opposite Finola Hughes' Anna Devane in the 80's. His character died in 1990, while being played by recast Greg Beecroft. When asked by a fan about rumors that he is returning to the sudser, Buchanan tweeted:
Would you be excited to see Duke Lavery back in Port Charles? Let us know in the comments!
