‘Sunset Beach’ vet Nick Stabile (ex-Mark) has been tapped as a temporary recast for Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) on GH. An ABC rep tells Digest, “We can officially confirm [the news],” which was first reported by Daytime Confidential. There is no word yet on how long Stabile, who pinch-hit for Justin Hartley (Adam, Y&R) when he was on paternity leave from the role of PASSIONS’s Fox, will be filling in for Christopher, who created the role of Nikolas in 1996. Our sources indicate that Stabile began shooting last week. In related news, Christopher was scheduled to appear alongside on-screen mom Genie Francis (Laura) at a weekend of fan events in June but was replaced by Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie). “So sorry @Tyler2929 can’t join me at next week’s @coastalent1 events,” Francis tweeted earlier. “But SO thrilled @JackieZeman is coming! So fun!”
