‘General Hospital’ News: Paul Hornsby Exits ‘GH,’ Richard Burgi Shares His Thoughts On Serial Killer Storyline

General Hospital spoilers have confirmed that Richard Burgi is exiting his role on GH as District Attorney Paul Hornsby. Richard Burgi discussed with SOD the end of his run as the District Attorney and surprisingly the serial killer of Port Charles, Paul Hornsby.

While he will miss sharing the spotlight with fellow co-stars, Jane Elliot (Tracy), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Maura West (Ava), he undoubtedly had a blast working with Maurice Benard (Sonny). Burgi also stated that he has struggled with the violent turn his character has taken in his final months on the soap, especially his brutal assassination of Nurse Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo).

Burgi told Soap Opera Digest that “As an actor, I’ve done crazy things and I probably will again, but that was very disturbing and I had a difficult time with it. I’m grateful for the work, for the experience, and I made some great friends”.

 In the most recent episode of General Hospital, viewers saw Anna and Dillion (Palmer Watkins) rush to save Tracy from Paul’s clutches and he was later detained and since he plans to plead guilty to all the murders that he claims he committed in his catatonic daughter, Susan’s name, he will surely go to prison. This of course, leaves the door open for a return to the show in the future but for now it looks as if Richard Burgi has other adventures on his mind.

Richard Burgi has not yet spoken out to fans on social media regarding this departure. No final airdate has been released by General Hospital as of yet.  Please continue to check back with Soap Opera Spy often as more information may become available to viewers at a later time.

We here at Soap Opera Spy wish Richard Burgi all the best as he pushes forward to pursue other roles. We look forward to seeing him on screen very soon.
