The details surrounding the return of daytime favorite Sean Kanan to General Hospital are a closely held secret. In an interview with New Castle News, Kanan teased his return to Port Charles and reflected on leaving The Bold and the Beautiful behind.
“I have been sworn to secrecy,” the 45-year-old son of Dale and Michele Perelman of Neshannock Township said with a chuckle. “I’ll just say that I am really looking forward to my role.”
“I knew ‘Bold’ has been concentrating on a lot of its younger cast members, so I talked with Brad Bell (executive producer and head writer) and he agreed that General Hospital was just a great opportunity for me, too good of one to pass up.”

I've been dropping hints on the blog and on the podcast like a British royal dropping trou, but now it's official! TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting Sean Kanan is returning to ABC Daytime's General Hospital! Said Kanan:
"This is all pretty surreal and utterly unexpected — in fact, I thought it was going to take an Act of Congress to get me back on GH!" says Kanan, referring to his wildman ways and past alcohol issues that led to his ouster from the show in 1997. "GH is one of those places I never thought I'd see again and that makes what's happened even more exciting. My life has changed completely since those days. I'm newly married and have a baby on the way. I also have an 11-year-old daughter and four stepchildren. I'm not the guy I used to be." READ MORE
