Tequan Richmond’s busy acting life has kept him off the “General Hospital” canvas on a regular basis over the last few months, resulting in a drop from contract to recurring status. Although fans still hearabout TJ through girlfriend Molly (including how they lost their virginity off screen), we won’t see him much in coming months.
The actor just filmed and co-produced a movie in Michigan and has another in the works for Showtime. However, his recent Daytime Emmy nomination gives him a tie to GH and he hopes he can appear here and there.
“I have things lined up a little bit, which is great, but I hope that when I get back [to California], maybe I can come in and do a few days [at GH],” Richmond told Soap Opera Digest. “It would be cool if they sprinkle me in because I’m sure people would like to see Molly and TJ again and Shawn–we never got to continue that storyline–so of course I would love to do that.”
With Shawn (Sean Blakemore) making an appearance on GH today and TJ’s mother (Jordan) still firmly in Port Charles, there’s plenty of room for a TJ return. However, we do have to wonder if the show might want to give Molly (Haley Pullos) a new romance that can play on-screen rather than off.
