Ian Buchanan who played Ian McCallister on Days until mid August 2012 made a very surprising return to General Hospital as Duke Lavery. The actor's returned surprised and stunned GH fans as he had not been on that show for 23 years.
Well as of this past Friday he his no longer on GH as the return was revealed to be a hoax. It was revealed on Friday that man everyone thought was the villainous Duke Lavery was another villain masquerading as Duke Lavery. In the closing seconds of Friday's GH episode the person pretending to be Duke Lavery removed what turned out to be a "Duke Lavery" mask and revealed his true identity to a female character named Robin.
Apparently GH managed in today's internet age to keep this major plot twist a secret as it has generated a lot of talk on various soap opera websites
Hmmm...too bad for IB.....I've been watching Alias on Netflix and IB was in an episode and looking fine....not so thin and frail. Oh, well, this is the life of an actor....he will hopefully land on his feet somewhere.
I don't watch GH, but my parents do and I'm home visiting and saw Friday's show. Ian looks great on GH. I was actually excited when Days announced he was coming on board b/c I knew of him. On Days he just looked weird and old. On GH, he looks like a sexy man. I think he dyed his hair-- but otherwise, I don't know what could make such a big difference!
Oly I know what you mean he looks completely different and so much better. I too am not sure exactly why he looks better these days but I was channel surfing and saw him and recognized his voice before I realized who it was and was so surprised how handsome he is. If he looked like that on Days I would have fully understood why Kate had an affair with him - LOL!
