General Hospital News: Owen Saxon Joins GH – Dante Falconeri Recast?

General Hospital spoilers news reports that GH added another new face to the set. Owen Saxon might be the recast Dante Falconeri as he joins the staff of the ABC soap in an undisclosed role. At this time, all that is known is that he’ll play a cop.

Owen Saxon Joins General Hospital – Recast Dante Falconeri?

GH spoilers don’t reveal his character name, but let’s think about who is a cop with dark hair, handsome features, and in need of a recast? Dante Falconeri comes to mind. The role of Dante, formerly played by Dominic Zamprogna, is currently empty now that the actor is pursuing other ventures.

This leaves Lulu Falconeri (Emme Rylan) all alone in Port Charles and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) in need of a crime-fighting partner. General Hospital spoilers Dante needs to return for his family, and Saxon’s resume makes him a possible match for the role. According to Soap Opera News, Saxon booked the role and will start soon.

Dante Falconeri Back on General Hospital?

GH spoilers show that handsome Owen Saxon has 11 roles on his IMDB profile and GH will make the twelfth and his soap opera debut. He’s done mostly shorts, TV movies, and an episode here and there on series like the Lethal Weapon reboot. If Saxon is the new Dante Falconeri, it’ll be a big break for his blossoming acting career.

It would be good to have Dante back in Port Charles. General Hospital spoilers see his brother, Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), reeling from the faked death of his son. Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is also struggling to hold it all together. And of course, Lulu misses her husband. Detective Chase blames himself for the “death” of baby Corinthos, so he could also use Dante’s friendship.

It is also possible that General Hospital created a new role for the actor. GH spoilers might have Saxon as a brand new cop in town leaving room for Zamprogna to return. However, the actor seems to be booking new projects and his return seems unlikely. Saxon’s brunette good looks align well with Sonny and the former face of Dante, so it could be a match.

Whoever he plays, Owen Saxon is sure to get a warm welcome from GH fans. Stay tuned to ABC weekdays to catch General Hospital. Also, check in often with Soap Dirt for updates and General Hospital spoilers and news.

General Hospital is my guilty pleasure. For over 20 years, I have escaped to Port Charles, NY so that I can laugh and cry with its beautiful residents. I’ve watched many other soaps over the years, but only GH has stuck with me from high school, through the birth of my children and beyond. As a writer for Soap Dirt, I now, get to inform the fans who can’t watch the show on a regular basis.
