When James DePaiva (ex-Max, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) hits the GH canvas next month, it will be in the role of a doctor at GH, a new promo teasing Sam’s mystery malady confirmed. Co-Head Writer Shelly Altman tells Digest, “We are introducing Jimmy DePaiva as a new doctor at the hospital — well, new to us, anyway! And we are very happy to have him.” Wally Kurth (Ned) echoes the sentiment, saying, “I was shocked when I saw him walking around in a doctor’s coat [at the studio], but it was great to see him. I told him, ‘It’s GENERAL HOSPITAL — we need some doctors! I hope you stay!’ “
