General Hospital hopes to restart filming soon and when they do Chad Duell, AKA Michael Corinthos, may film GH love scenes with real-life girlfriend, Courtney Hope from B&B. This way, they can stick with the script for romance while the actors remain safe on the ABC sudser. No doubt, this is a treat for fans of both soaps.
Romance Ahead for Michael Corinthos on General Hospital?
GH aired its last fresh episode on May 21, and fans are surely eager to see what’s in store when they resume. Originally, the soap’s plan was to get back to work mid-July. Then, they’d re-air the last 10 most-recent episodes to refresh fans. However, there are concerns that may delay then. We heard from a General Hospital source that the ABC soap’s delayed and two actors may be positive for COVID-19.
Now, the sudser could be looking at an August restart instead. So, when they start cranking out new episodes, there may be romance for Chad’s character Michael Corinthos. Of course, it may be Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen), Michael’s new wife. Or, it might be Michael’s ex-girlfriend Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson). Either way, it’s sure to be tricky with social distance. However, General Hospital could use doubles to make it work – as other soaps now plan to do.
Chad Duell GF Courtney Hope Could Stand-In for Steamy Parts on GH
General Hospital may use spouses or partners of the actors as body doubles for romantic scenes. In fact, all US soaps might go this route for now. Of course, spouses and partners would also be tested for COVID first. So, Chad Duell’s partner Courtney Hope could sub in for either Sasha or Willow on GH.
Some General Hospital fans may know Courtney Hope as Sally Spectra on Bold and the Beautiful. Recently, B&B joked about using blow-up dolls for intimate scenes. However, instead, they’ve already brought in male partners and husbands for kissing and bed scenes. So, Courtney Hope could help out at GH. And maybe Chad could return the favor for Courtney.

Chad Steps in for Sexy Time Over at Bold and the Beautiful?
General Hospital celeb Chad Duell may do double-duty and stand-in for the object of Sally’s affection on B&B. Currently, Darin Brooks plays Wyatt Spencer – that’s the guy Courtney’s character’s pursuing. So, Chad may double for him if Sally needs up-close scenes with Wyatt.
This is what all of the soaps may do until Coronavirus is under control. So, be sure to tune in to new GH episodes to see if Courtney Hope plays Chad Duell’s lover for sexy scenes on ABC daytime. If Michael Corinthos starts kissing someone in new episodes – it might not be who you think.
