Kevin’s recent behavior has caused some viewers to suspect he's actually his twin brother, Ryan Chamberlain, on GENERAL HOSPITAL! This wouldn’t be the first time that someone in Port Charles had their unusual actions explained by having been swapped with a look-alike. Remember when it turned out that Anna’s strange behavior was because she had been replaced with her twin sister, Alex? The only problem with this theory is that Ryan is dead. Of course, we now know that is not true!
Ryan first appeared in June of 1992, played by actor Jon Lindstrom, who did double duty when GH introduced Ryan’s twin, Kevin Collins, the following year. Ryan was introduced as a pediatrician at General Hospital, but it was soon revealed that he had been hiding his mentally unstable behavior for quite a while. Felicia Jones knew him in Texas where he was calling himself “Todd Wilson” and had witnessed him murder his wife, Gloria!
When Felicia returned to Port Charles, she had amnesia and didn’t remember Ryan. But he remembered her, and quickly became obsessed with the beautiful blonde, trapping her in a cabin! He was arrested for attempted murder, and Kevin, a psychiatrist, came to town intent on rehabilitating his brother. Unfortunately, Ryan was faking his progress and used his twin to escape the mental hospital and impersonate him!
Ryan crashed Felicia and Mac’s wedding with a bomb, but Kevin managed to persuade the hospital staff of his true identity and raced to the church to stop his twin. After Ryan was apprehended once more, Kevin washed his hands of his brother. But Ryan escaped again with the help of his counselor, Connie, who he murdered. Impersonating Kevin, Ryan kidnapped Felicia’s daughter, Georgie!
Kevin helped Mac and Felicia track his psychotic twin down at a funhouse and rescue Georgie, though the killer let himself die in the building’s violent explosion rather than be locked away in the hospital again. Over the years, Ryan continued to haunt Kevin, who felt guilty for failing to save his brother, but those were just memories. However, Kevin's recent behavior led fans to suspect he was really Ryan, and while it appears that it's Ryan who was Carly's mysterious neighbor at Ferncliff, many are convinced there's been another swap, and it's Ryan who's been keeping Kevin prisoner!
