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.”
