If Neil on GENERAL HOSPITAL looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you’ve seen his portrayer, Joe Flanigan, in one of his many primetime roles. This is his daytime debut as Neil finds himself getting mixed up with Alexis. Might the guy be just the thing to take Alexis’ mind off of Julian?
Alexis was all riled up when she first met Neil at Charlie's Pub, ranting about an "arrogant bastard." She ranted about Julian for a long while, and he suggested she try to focus on herself and not her ex. Neil also suggested they continue their conversation over dinner, but she suggested that might not be the best idea given her current state. She excused herself to go to her appointment with a new therapist and was startled when it turned out to be Neil! Unfortunately, if he's going to be her new doctor, they would seem to put the kibosh on dating. But who knows what the future might hold?
In addition to numerous guest appearances, Flanigan has had recurring roles on primetime series like SISTERS, CUPID, PROVIDENCE, PROFILER, and FIRST MONDAY. But he is probably best known for playing Lt. Colonel John Sheppard in the popular science-fiction series STARGATE: ATLANTIS from 2004-09. During those years he starred opposite actors like Jason Momoa, Jewel Staite, Robert Picardo, and Mitch Pileggi.
There has been no official word as to exactly how long Neil will be sticking around Port Charles, so you’re going to want to stay tuned to see how his storyline plays out and how it involves Alexis. And for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
