SOW is reporting that Sebastian Roche has been let go. There are also rumors that Megan Ward was also leaving but Bob Guza says that she is isn't going anywhere.

GH rep would not comment on the rumors.

Wow! I actually like Sebastian Roche... I'm guessing he either protects Alexis by making the "ultimate sacrifice" ie He jumps in front of the bullet from Karpov. Maybe they'll be nice and make him recover, but go to jail so that he can return if storyline dictates.

I bet Megan Ward wanted to go, but they can't let her because they would love MB - I've heard from too many places that he wants Skate or nothing, to NOT believe it. Too bad I absolutely HATE SKATE!!

That's a good step in the right direction.

Alan Quartermaine's killer should not be able
to walk around town like nothing happened.
Good actor, but Jerry was ruined for me.
Just like the others in a long long LONG Guza list.

I think Sebastian is a fine actor but his character sucked!!

I am extremely happy he's leaving, not only did he kill Alan Quartermaine he shot Robin in cold blood and left her there to die and those are just a few of his crimes!

I have never believed that Alexis would EVER fall for a man who poisioned her nephew and almost killed him! She's way too smart for that :wave:

Last week this was reported by Trixie at The Soaptown Steamroom:

Sebastian Roche is out may be truer then we think. From what sources are saying he has so many options coming up, and wants to spread his wings. Management wasn't able to work around his requests logistically, so hence the upcoming exit, and if true, my insider says you are really going to like the sweeps story. Roche was loving the idea of sending Jerry back to the dark side to facilitate his exit. My insider said he remains professional and charming, he's is a class act, the best French Export we've gotten here in the States for quite awhile. Considering all things, Nancy and Sebastian are pretty happy with the way things will play out. However they do not want Nancy to leave. If she did decide to leave this could be very serious for the show and her fans. They will find her a story come hell or high water. The real reason behind keeping Nancy happy is a case of "We may not be using you to full capabilities but we don't want anyone else to have you", so it's time for TPTB to step up to the plate. If they don't, things may get ugly, and Nancy is a fighter, and that's something many do not want to see. This woman is smarter then TPTB even realize

Yay! No more Jerry Jax! Now if they would just kill off Sonny I'd be happy! :)

This actually kind of sucks. Yes, I never understood why the show kept stepping around all of Jerry's crimes as if they didn't happen but this is GH, home of mobsters-as-heroes.

Having said that, Sebastian Roche is a wonderfullly charming and funny person. He does have a recurring role on "24," so he won't be completely off our screens.

GET EM STEPH!!

Roche is a fine actor but making him Jerry was just a mistake. It dumbed down everyone in town and the fact that Bobbie and him was never really addressed was a HUGE plot hole. The way they white-washed his crimes...now that was poor writing. I understand why they wanted to keep him but why not keep him as just Mr. Craig? Making him Jerry just fucked things up on so many levels.

I do hope he gets picked up by someone. He plays a great villain.

Agreed.

The character had no purpose after the Metro Court.

Its a good move. Just because SR and NLG have good chemistry there was no sense to the pairing, sorry the DA falling for a terrorist is extreme even for GH. I figured that the character had limited time left when they had the character start going after Sam while he was claiming to be all about Alexis.

I also think/hope GH might be seeing that this stupid fake drug storyline is a bust. Jerry could take Nadine and Matt with his and nobody would really bat an eye.
