Bradford Anderson was especially delighted to step back into the role of GH’s Spinelli this week because the last time he was poised to return, a last-minute scheduling conflict (he booked an episode of HOMELAND) forced the show to recast the part with Blake Berris (ex-Nick, DAYS). “The situation that happened last December has stayed with me,” the actor states. “I hated the fact that I made life harder for my friends at GH.” So, when Executive Producer Frank Valentini reached out to him to invite him back, “I felt a mixture of excitement and relief because in truth, I didn’t know if they’d ever call again, because I put them in a really tough position.” His experience at the studio was a positive one. “To walk back in there and have it still feel like home was an intense relief…. If there were hard feelings, I didn’t feel them. Everyone was so sweet.” For the full scoop from the actor, check out the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, on sale today.
