Sebastian Roche, who is best known as terrorist Jerry Jacks, will resurface on General Hospital
this summer, and according to Soap Opera Digest
, he'll be stirring up some serious trouble beginning July.
Jerry, who originally went by the pseudonym James Craig, was first portrayed by Julian Stone from April 10, 1998 to December 14, 1999. Roche, who eventually assumed the role in January 2007, had been signed to a contract on General Hospital
, keeping his character around for the foreseeable future. Jerry supposedly died in a boat explosion in late November 2008, but turned up alive in early April 2009. He is believed to be currently hiding somewhere in Port Charles.
Aside from General Hospital,
Roche has appeared on 24, The Mentalist, CSI, Big Apple
. In the big screen, he has been cast in the drama film L.L.
, the adventure animated film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
and the action drama Shattered Glory
In other General Hospital
news, daytime newcomer Lexi Ainsworth, who plays Kristina Corinthos-Davis, has been upped to contract status --- less than a month after she first graced the show. Ainsworth first appeared as the 16-year-old Kristina on June 4 and her character immediately garnered rave reviews for using her looks and good grades to manipulate Jason Morgan and her mother.
Prior to General Hospital
, Lexi Ainsworth appeared on iCarly, Wild Child, The Gray Man, Gilmore Girls, Caroline Crossing
and Medical Investigation
