ABC General Hospital spoilers reveal that the cast of characters residing in Port Charles, NY is vibrant, intriguing, dramatic and unpredictable. In short the residents are imminently watchable, some more so that others. With a cast as large and talented as the one gracing the ABC soap right now, it’s inevitable that some characters are pushed to the side, and we don’t see them ear enough. Here are five of the most underused characters of 2020, who do you think was the most underused?
#1 Damian Spinelli
Is there anything the Ace of Cyberspace can’t do? He is the Swiss Army knife of humanoids, able to do whatever is asked of him by Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). He loves Maximista (Kirsen Storms) and maybe 2021 will bring him the story he deserves when she learns what a dog Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is?
Stephen A. Smith may be a top of the line ESPN journalist, but surely ABC can afford to have him cross over as the one-word enforcer more than twice a year? The strong man’s value lays in Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) trust in him despite the fact that he flirts outrageously with his wife Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright).
#3 Amy Driscoll
Lisa Dorken has the voice of an angel, a fact recently brought home for the second time when she covered for Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Briana Lane/Amanda Setton) at Deception. General Hospital can always use good nurses, and whatever happened to her hunky brother? It’s time to give Amy a story of her own, especially if we’re not seeing Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and Epiphany Johnson (Sonya Eddy) perform their regular duties at the hospital–who’s taking care of the patients for crying out loud?
#4 Mac Scorpio
There was a time when lucky General Hospital fans saw John J. York as Mac Scorpio on a daily basis. Now we barely see him at all. He kinda sorta runs a restaurant and subs at the PCPD, but c’mon for a character of his stature and ability he should be doing much more. And bring along his underused wife Felicia Jones (Kristina Wagner) while you’re at it writers!
#5 Jackie Templeton
General Hospital fans waited decades to see this hot shot again and Kim Delaney picked right up where Demi Moore left off. While she was here. Just like that Jackie was off on another story and Port Chuck was in her rear view. Let’s hope that when she comes back she and her hubby and stepson do some long overdue “family bonding.”
