At long last, Nicolas Bechtel is back as Spencer on GENERAL HOSPITAL! The young actor's most recent stint on the soap began on June 6, but as yet no one has said just how long his visit to Port Charles will be this time around. We're just happy to see him again and love whenever Spencer pops in!

Back on March 8, Bechtel got GH fans excited when he tweeted to castmate Genie Francis (Laura), “See you soon?” to which the daytime vet responded, “A little bird told me I might be seeing you soon. Well, actually a big bird, a really big bird…”
While the first thing we thought of when she said “big bird” was SESAME STREET, we were convinced she was talking about GH’s executive producer, the very tall Frank Valentini. Just a month ago, Bechtel visited Valentini at the GH studios, but neither of them let slip whether the visit was social or business. But on the day of the young actor's return, the soap shared a pic of himself with his on-screen grandma!

Bechtel had also been feeling a little homesick for Port Charles back in March, Tweeting a photo of Spencer’s hospital bracelet from when he was horribly burned in a dangerous fire at Wyndemere. “An unforgettable storyline,” he said. “I was so fortunate to have had that opportunity. Missing my GH family.”
Bechtel has been keeping busy since leaving GH, with a role as young Rob Kardashian in the acclaimed AMERICAN CRIME STORY and starring as Lewie Diaz in Disney Channel’s STUCK IN THE MIDDLE, which is currently in its second season.
But GH fans always love to see Spencer back in Port Charles, especially if it means there might be a chance of bringing Tyler Christopher back as his father, Nikolas! (Sadly, there's no news on that front yet...)
You can see why Bechtel loves coming home to GH based on these wonderful photos he’s taken with his castmates who he clearly adores!
