Bryan Craig has quit “General Hospital” to make him available for other projects. The 24-year-old actor has worked on the ABC drama General Hospital for three-and-a-half years.
“It’s really hard to schedule anything when you’re at GH under contract. There had been some projects that I had gotten close on — and some things that I wasn’t even able to give a shot because of the scheduling [challenges],” said Bryan Craig.
The actor talking exclusively to Soap Opera Digest told that he has finally decided to leave the show. But, for him it was not an easy task to do as it entailed giving up the weekly paycheck that came from ABC.
Craig added that he and his manager wanted to free themselves and check what works out for him. He said how his parents, close friends, Kelly Thiebaud pushed him to out and see what he is capable of.
Besides, Maurice Benard also supported him. Bryn Craig can’t thank his executive producer Frank Valentini enough.
“Everything went really smoothly with Frank. He was great about it. We negotiated the time to work out the storyline and all of that, and everything was fair on my end and his end, and he was very, very supportive,” the actor said.
The Emmy Award-winning actor has no regrets of quitting General Hospital, as his end was fair. Besides, he does not think of the things he does afterward.
“So, after I decided to leave, I didn’t really worry about it,” he said. Craig added that he only thought about what he would do next. His goal is to do good work leading up to the end.
Without revealing details about his new project, Bryan Craig took to Twitter and told fans that they can see him very soon on screen, according to Soap Hub.
It’s been an amazing journey, but I feel like the time is right for me to say goodbye to GENERAL HOSPITAL and Morgan Corinthos. This was not an easy decision and I am extremely grateful to ABC, [Executive Producer] Frank Valentini and the entire GH cast and crew for the opportunity and their unyielding support. To the wonderful fans who have embraced and loved Morgan as one of their own, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
