Fictional Port Charles, New York is down one dapper don. Scottish-born mobster Duke Lavery died from gunshot wounds earlier this week, marking the end of Ian Buchanan's latest stint at General Hospital. The actor spoke out about his exit to Soap Opera Digest.
Here's an excerpt:
Finola [Hughes, Anna] and I have been very fortunate. GENERAL HOSPITAL was my first family as an actor and we had a great working relationship, and to go back and for she and I still to set the same standard for each other on a daily basis was just pretty remarkable, almost 30 years later."
