The rumors can now be laid to rest. Soaps In Depth caught up with GENERAL HOSPITAL's Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) at a pre-Emmy party in Beverly Hills and learned the real reason behind his new status as a recurring player.
"I've been on the show for seven years, and I'm still sticking around," he tells In Depth exclusively. "I'd just like to flex my creative muscles and dip my toe in the creative waters but still keep the fires burning at GH. I feel so incredibly lucky to be playing this character, to have created him and to see where the twists and turns of his development take him. Spinelli has plenty of adventures ahead. I'm here, and I hope you will be, too."
As central a character as Spinelli has become over the years, it's easy to forget that when Anderson first came aboard in November of 2006, it was on a recurring basis. It wasn't until six months later that the soap signed him to a long-term deal.
