General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

Although fans of ABC's "General Hospital" got their first glimpse of Sean Kanan back on screen as AJ Quartermaine on the Friday, October 26 episode, they didn't learn much about why the character had returned to Port Charles. Kanan himself may be able to shed some light when he joins fans for an upcoming live Twitter chat during the east coast broadcast of the daytime drama series.
With word of Sean Kanan returning to "General Hospital" next month in an as yet to-be-determined role, despite portraying AJ Quartermaine 15 years ago on the drama series, I recently noted an uncanny similarity Kanan currently has with former co-star and on screen brother Steve Burton.
For more than 12 years Sean Kanan has been portraying the role of the flawed Deacon Sharpe on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless," but for fans of "General Hospital" he is best known for his portrayal of AJ Quartermaine. Last seen in 1997 as AJ went toe-to-toe with Carly Roberts (now Carly Jacks) as played by Sarah Brown, fans were shocked to find the role recast with actor Billy Warlock. According to published reports, Kanan had been fired by then executive producer Wendy Riche because of issues relating to alcohol use. In 2005, Warlock's AJ was killed off by a psychotic psychiatrist, but after a 15 year absence from the canvas does Kanan's return mean the show has decided to undo AJ's death?
