As previously reported, Tristan Rogers will soon be departing ABC’s “General Hospital” after his most recent stint as Robert Scorpio comes to an end. With his pending return to CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” in the new year, Rogers recently announced on Twitter his final film date at “GH” and his first film date back at “Y&R.”
While announcing his plans to vacation in Australia during the Christmas holiday break, Rogers revealed that he films his last scenes at “GH” on Thursday, December 19 and will begin filming scenes as his “Y&R” character, Colin Atkinson, beginning Wednesday, January 8. Viewers should expect to see the actor continue airing on “GH” through at least February, as noted by head writer Ron Carlivati. A first airdate on “Y&R” is not yet known. “I am passionate about daytime drama. Where ever I work. I want to do the best I can. So lets be bipartisan and support the genre,” said Rogers on moving from one soap to another.
