(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you thought you saw the last of Christian Alexander and his character Keifer Tate on ABC’s “General Hospital,” think again!
Soap Opera Network has learned that Alexander has been bumped to recurring status and will return for a series of episodes in July beginning with the Tuesday, July 14 episode of the soap. In the episode, Michael (Drew Garrett) senses something is off with Keifer and tries to protect his sister, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), from harms way. Will he be too late? Tune in to find out!
Christian Alexander has been making a name for himself since marking his television debut on the Nickelodean series “Zoey 101″ in 2006. Since then he has appeared in such programs as NBC’s “Medium” (2007), ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” (2008), ABC Family’s “Lincoln Height’s”(2008) and Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life on Deck” (2008). Come fall, look for Alexander to appear in the new ABC Primetime series “Eastwick,” which stars former “General Hospital” starlet Jaime Ray Newman (ex-Kristina Cassadine). He will portray a character by the name of Gus.
Recently, Alexander starred in the film “Half Truth” along-side “GH’s” Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller). The film is a quirky coming-of-age indie film set in the rural south and centered around an insecure, teenaged outcast, Donell (James Earl), an enigmatic wonder-boy, Johnny (Alexander), and the intimate relationship they forge while on a madcap escape from their oppressive lives. The film was written and directed by Wade Gasque.
“General Hospital” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
