"General Hospital" star Bryan Craig has finally spoken about the primary reason why he decided to leave the noontime soap earlier than expected. Despite revealing that he is working for another project, fans can't seem to move on from his character's untimely death last week.
Craig has officially revealed that he is working for another project which explains his exit from "General Hospital." Although he was vocal about his intention to leave the show, no one saw it coming as early as last week since his exit had been expected to be in November. Craig starred on the ABC soap for over three years long.
Bryan Craig Working For A Major Movie Role
With the early farewell scene of Morgan, this led to reports that Craig must be working on a major movie role for him to be killed off the show early. What used to be unverified reports were confirmed true after all when Craig himself posted a photo on his Twitter account with a caption: "Say hello to Jack #Ridemovie."
In an exclusive interview with Soap Opera Digest, Craig outlined the real score behind this controversial move. He said: It's really hard to schedule anything when you're at GH under contract." Craig further admitted that there were a few instances already that he turned down other projects because of his prior and existent commitment with ABC and the show.

Much of his desire to be freed, Craig disclosed that he and his manager negotiated with "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini to kill off the character sooner than his contract ends. According to him, "everything went really smoothly with Frank." It can be noted that Craig's character on the soap, Morgan Corinthos, died from a car bomb explosion in an episode from last week.
"General Hospital" airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET on ABC.
