General Hospital spoilers reveal Tequan Richmond is out and a new Thomas “TJ” Ashford, Jr. is coming to Port Charles. The news broke a few months ago that Tequan had landed a role in a new BET series called Boomerang. At the time, nobody shared if he was leaving GH or sticking around for a while. He has played the role of “TJ” since 2012. His role in Boomerang is said to be a starring one, so that should take up a lot of his time.
General Hospital Spoilers: The New new Thomas “TJ” Ashford, Jr.
General Hospital fans want to know who has landed this role? It turns out that an actor by the name of Tajh Bellow is taking over. The crazy thing is he will start airing on the show today. Somehow they were able to keep it under wraps until now. The rumors have been flying, though.
If you feel like you recognize Tajh Bellow, he was seen on Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story, Filthy Preppy Teen$, K.C. Undercover and Bosch. Viewers are going to notice that this actor looks a bit older than Richmond did playing the role. It wouldn’t make much sense to age him at this point, though. Tequan Richmond is 26-years-old.
GH fans wonder how this will affect the character
“TJ” hasn’t been around much lately. He will return today. An actor that looks a bit older should still look fine with Molly Lansing (Haley Pullos.) Molly has been aged on the show, but she is still pretty young. Her romance with “TJ” is one that doesn’t seem to be having any issues or ending anytime soon. They are one of the few stable couples on General Hospital. If the chemistry is gone, that is going to upset the long-time fans of this couple on GH.
The role of “TJ”‘s mom on General Hospital recently changed as well. Jordan Ashford has been played by Vinessa Antoine, but Briana Nicole Henry took over back in September. She does look a bit younger, so putting “TJ” as an older actor looks a bit crazy considering he is supposed to be her son. The fans will just have to get used to the new way of things for this family.
It isn’t strange at all for a soap opera to recast a role. Fans are used to this happening. Sometimes the new actor wins them over and other times they just can’t adjust to the big change. General Hospital viewers won’t be shy at all about sharing how they feel.
