GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Nikolas may not realize it, but his love for Hayden (and others!) may just keep him from assuming the Cassadine throne of evil.
“Nik grew up around all of that treachery,” portrayer Tyler Christopher tells Soaps In Depth. “He has taken on Helena’s cunningness somewhat... but Hayden has softened him up.” Might the Cassadine heir have too much heart to be king?
With Nikolas on a precipice, Christopher is about to celebrate 20 years in Port Charles! “I started working at GH in April, 1996,” he says. “They had been casting my role for six months and there was a lot of hype around the character, so I was thrilled to be the one that grasped the role. It was my first television job ever! Now, in a lot of ways, it’s home.”
Christopher expands on Nik’s internal struggle and his history with GH in the current ABC issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!
