Get ready for Dominic Zamprogna to return to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Dante Falconeri! The soap has confirmed that the actor will be shooting one episode slated to air in mid-November, though they’re remaining mum on any further details.
On Oct. 29, Zamprogna teased fans by tweeting at Maurice Benard (Sonny): “Big day tomorrow.” And when William deVry (Julian) replied: “Um, you forgetting someone?” Zamprogna joked: “Yes. Will, thanks for reminding me. Lisa LoCicero (Olivia), see you in the AM, ma!” Things became a whole lot clearer the following day when the actor shared a photo of himself outside of the GH studio. “Dante for a day?” he shared. “Happy to be back with the GH fam.”
Then, on the same day, LoCicero shared a photo of herself with her on-screen son joined by deVry and Benard at a restaurant. "Good (not so) old days," she captioned it. Looks like everyone was having fun seeing each other again and catching up! (And the food doesn't look half-bad, either!)
Zamprogna joined the cast of GH in 2009 as Dante, receiving a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2014 for Outstanding Supporting Actor. Fans of the soap were saddened to learn in the spring of 2018 that he had chosen to leave GH and filmed his last scenes. Thankfully, the writers didn't have Dante fall in the line of duty like Nathan West, and instead sent him out of town on an important mission.
Is Dante still working for the WSB? Will he be back in Port Charles or will Lulu track him down? You’ll have to tune in to find out! And for more GH casting news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth!
