Shocking plot twists that will shake up your shows!
With a romance in bloom, Kristina tend- ing his bar and son-in-law Brad turning to him for support, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Julian is back in the thick of things. “He was isolating, and he needed that… but I’m thrilled,” William deVry raves of his character’s expanding world. “He’s having fun!
“I do see comments on-line about how Julian’s done another 180,” he adds. “Some fans say they don’t recognize him… but I think that’s the point.”
Julian hunkered down at Charlie’s in an effort to prove himself reformed and wor thy of his family’s love. But he didn’t do it alone. In fact, “I don’t think he would have survived this journey without someone like Kim in his life,” the actor admits.
In any case, Julian’s period of quiet soul-searching and healing is decidedly over. Not only is the grandpa spending time with Lucas’ clan, but Kristina’s job means he’s seeing more of Sam… and Alexis. Even as his bond with Kim deepens, Julian’s forging an awkward friend-
ship with his ex — and deVry’s happy to be the man in the middle. “The cool thing is he has these two personalities that are hugely different with each woman,” he explains.
And then there’s Julian’s surprising approach to Sonny and that body found in Charlie’s basement! “It’s that whole turning-theother-cheek, new-leaf thing he’s been trying to do,” deVry chuckles. “It’ll be interesting to see how Sonny and Julian’s next meetings go. It’s just a pleasure to go to work right now!”
As much fun as he’s having, deVry finds himself eyeing Julian’s past again… including one particular period. “I want to explore something from the 20 years he was in witness protection,” grins the actor. “I’d like them to bring in somebody from that past — or somebody from the ’80s who was with the old Julian Jerome.”
“Yeah, we ordered a coffee.”
