General Hospital News – Tristan Rogers Hits A Major Milestone In Port Charles
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the actor says that he remembers his first day on the job like it was yesterday. Before he became a daytime television actor, Tristan was a builder’s laborer in his native Australia. In Los Angeles, he worked as a gym instructor for a while before he got his big break on General Hospital in what was only supposed to be a two-day role.
According to Tristan, his first week on the job was nothing spectacular, but he knew that he was joining one of the hottest shows on television. It didn’t take very long for the producers of the show to see the potential in Tristan’s character and bring him on full-time. One of his biggest storylines during those first few years was the Princess adventure on Cassadine Island.
Tristan recalled, “I remember the craziness of it and the intensity of it. Living in L.A., everyone is celebrity-blasé, but when you left town, then you really understood how crazy it was. Going to New York, Philly, Boston, Detroit, and of those places, it was really crazy town. You needed to be looked after, you couldn’t just go for a stroll or into a bar or a restaurant. I’d have my meals from room service because going out wasn’t much of an option unless you wanted to get mauled.”
