Gregory Harrison Upped to Contract Status at ‘General Hospital’

"General Hospital" has placed Gregory Harrison on contract, upping him from recurring status for his role as Gregory Chase on the daytime drama series.

According to a recent update to the show’s credits, Gregory Harrison is now on contract at “General Hospital.” 

The actor joined the daytime drama series in November 2020 in the then recurring role of Gregory Chase, the father of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase (Josh Swickard). After disappearing from the scene in mid-2021, the character returned to Port Charles in April of this year. The role was previously portrayed by James Read for a four-and-a-half-month run in 2018.

Before appearing in Port Charles, Harrison made a name for himself when he played Dr. George Alonzo “Gonzo” Gates in the popular series “Trapper John, M.D.” He later starred as Michael Sharpe in the primetime soap “Falcon Crest.” He followed that up with a starring role as Jack Taylor in “The Family Man.” The actor would go on to appear in multiple episodes of “Strong Medicine,” “Joey,” “One Tree Hill,” “Ringer,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” and more recently “Chesapeake Shores,” among his other numerous television and film credits.

Fans of Harrison who would like to meet the actor in person are in luck. He’ll be appearing at RomaDrama Live!, an event where stars from romantic comedies, Christmas movies, soaps and more will get up close and personal with their biggest fans. The event is taking place during the weekend of June 24-26, 2022 from the Palm Beach Convention Center in West Palm Beach, FL. There will be meet & greets, selfies, autograph signings, photo opportunities, and even Q&As. For more information about the event, click here.

Since the last time we reported on changes to the show’s contract cast, “General Hospital” has added Tanisha Harper as Jordan Ashford, Tabyana Ali as Trina Robinson, Robert Gossett as Marshall Ashford, Michael Kruse as Rory Cabrera and Josh Kelly as Cody Bell to its roster. In total, the soap currently has 36 actors under contract with several dozen more working in a recurring capacity.
