General Hospital Spoilers – Bryan Craig Proves His Perfect For the Role
In a Zoom virtual fan event back in March, Craig said he loved working with George, who’s also his friend. The actor revealed that they didn’t want him to play the role at first because they needed someone who’s funny. But Craig managed to convince them that he was a perfect fit. Aside from landing the role, he also got to work with Tommy Flanagan, which for him was “so dope.”
“Originally, they did not want me to play that role because they wanted somebody who is really funny. I told them that I could be funny too, and I showed them that I could do it,” he recalled.
“Once we read for the film, George and I had everybody in the room dying laughing, and then, they gave me the part,” he continued.
“That was a cool moment because initially, they didn’t even want me reading for that role. I’ve had a friendship with George for a while so that made it easier to play best friends on-screen,” he added.
