The revelation that the man everyone thought was Jason for years on GENERAL HOSPITAL was actually Andrew Cain had many wondering who this mystery man really is and what secrets his past might hold. While Drew sadly remembers nothing of his own past, there’s still quite a bit that has been revealed on the soap. And although the facts have been released in bits and pieces, let’s see if we can’t break it all down and see what we’ve learned so far!
Who plays Drew on GH?
The role of Drew Cain is currently being played by Billy Miller, although Steve Burton was seen in an old photo of Drew, since Jason and Drew used to look alike. Also, Asher McDonell has played Drew in a flashback scene of his childhood.
Who are Drew’s parents?
Drew and his twin brother, Jason, were born to Susan Moore after her affair with Alan Quartermaine. When Susan was pregnant, she fled Port Charles and stayed with her cousin, Heather Webber, in New York City, fearing Alan would drag her back home to raise their child. When Heather brought nurse Betsy Frank in, they learned that Susan was having twins. Heather suggested that since Alan didn’t know they were having twins, Susan could return to Port Charles with Jason and leave Drew with Betsy. Then, after Alan took custody of the one child, Susan could return to the other.

How are Drew and Franco connected?
However, Susan died tragically, and Heather never returned, so Betsy raised Drew alongside Heather’s son, Bobby, who later became known as Franco Baldwin. She claimed the two were as close as brothers could be until Drew died of a heart defect. However, when an adult Franco confronted Betsy, she confessed that Drew hadn’t died, and she was forced to give him away after Franco had pushed him down a flight of stairs when they were three.
Why is Drew’s last name Cain?
Drew grew up in an orphanage, and later became a Navy SEAL who was stationed in San Diego, CA. But while his name was Andrew Cain, it has not yet been revealed who is adopted parents were who gave him that name, if in fact, that’s where he got the last name of Cain in the first place! That’s one mystery yet to be solved.

Who are Drew’s children?
While he was a Navy SEAL, Drew had a fling with Dr. Kim Nero, and while brief, it was passionate enough that she gave birth to his son, Oscar Nero, who is now a teenager. He also has a daughter, Scout, with Sam from the time they were married and everyone believed him to be Jason Morgan.
Will Drew regain his memories?
When Drew was found on the side of the road, his face was badly injured and he required reconstructive surgery. While he initially suffered from amnesia, he soon began to recall memories of being Jason Morgan and living in Port Charles. So everyone in town believed that he was Jason back from the dead… that is, until the real Jason returned from the dead having been kept prisoner in a Russian clinic for many years!

It was then revealed that Dr. Andre Maddox had developed a procedure for copying memories and transferring them that he had hoped to use on his ailing wife and other Alzheimer’s sufferers. But his technology was used to steal Jason’s memories and implant them into Drew. The whereabouts of the flash drive containing Drew’s memories as well as the identity of the other people behind the shocking plot have not been revealed.
What’s next for Drew?
Although he now knows that he is not Jason, Drew is still struggling to forge his own life in Port Charles. He still doesn’t remember details of his own past, but his love for Sam and their daughter continues to drive him forward. But the question of whether or not Drew will one day have his memories restored remains in question. And if he does remember his life as Drew, how will that affect his future with Sam?
