Another Head Rolls, Ingle Gets Reprieve

On December 12, 2003, Soapdom reported that days were numbered for four GH cast members.  Chad Brannon (Zander) was leaving of his own accord. But John Ingle (Edward), Kin Shriner (Scott), and possibly Lane Davies (Cameron) were on their way out.

News of Kin Shriner’s dismissal was a shocker. He had been with the show almost since the beginning. His character, Scott, was used to transition the spin off show, Port Charles.  After a few years doing crossovers on both soaps, he returned to GH full time.

Chad Brannon (Zander) started in a recurring role, but soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand and was given contact status. He chose to leave the show to pursue other interests.

General Hospital has just confirmed that the character of Cameron played by Lane Davies is the next to meet the chopping block. 

“The storyline of Cameron Lewis will end in the coming weeks and as a result, Lane Davies will be leaving the cast of ‘General Hospital,’  the show spokesperson told Soapdom.  “We, the cast and crew, are most grateful for Lane’s contributions to the daytime drama and wish him much success with his future.”

But here’s the big turnaround.  John Ingle (Edward) will NOT be leaving.  Shortly after ABC announced that Edward would be written off the show, and Ingle published a formal statement thanking fans for their support over the years, General Hospital did an about face.  The way we heard it, Jill Pharren Phelps called Ingle at home asking him to stay on. He was thrilled to get the call.
