If you thought Lulu's date on GENERAL HOSPITAL looked familiar that's because the actor has a history with ABC Daytime! In the July 9 episode, the character of Dustin Phillips was played by actor Mark Lawson, who soap fans will remember from his role as Brody Lovett on ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
Lawson played Brody on OLTL from 2008 until 2012. The presumed dead Navy SEAL arrived in Llanview and tried to reconnect with his old flame, Gigi Morasco, but suffered serious PTSD and during his treatment fell for Jessica Buchanan. Much drama with her and her sister, Natalie, ensued over the years and he became an officer for the Llanview Police Department. During the ABC series finale of the soap, Brody made peace with Jessica and took another job in the Navy, leaving town.
After leaving daytime, made appearances in television series like PITCH and films like Dear Diary I Died, Ex-Wife Killer, and Killer Reputation. He's also a personal trainer and strength coach, and has also recently dabbled in screenwriting. While it may initially appear that his GH role of Dustin is simply be a one-off as Lulu continues her investigation into the burglaries plaguing Port Charles, perhaps there's more to the handsome schoolteacher? Casting a talented actor like Lawson for a guest appearance would be quite a waste! And with Dante out of the picture, Lulu could certainly use a new love interest...
