Mathison took the opportunity when he learned that he had some available time and got in touch with General Hospital showrunner Frank Valentini. He had some spare time since the production of Home & Family was scaled back to twice a week.
The actor admitted that he always wanted to work on General Hospital. So, he reached out to Valentini.
“I kind of reached out to Frank… and I just said, ‘Listen, Frank, I’m going to have three days a week [free] and I don’t know if there’s anything, I don’t want to be presumptuous, you know I’ve always been a huge fan of yours and the show… ’” the actor shared.
Mathison revealed that he didn’t finish the text but Valenti understood what he wanted and said yes to it without hesitation. When asked about his role, the actor said he has no idea because he’d been given different names of characters and storylines.
Even so, he’s excited to be part of the show and he considers it “a great opportunity” as an actor. It’s different from his previous roles and it plays to his strengths, in a way.
