‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: TJ Ashford Recast – Tequan Richmond Leaving GH?

General Hospital spoilers gather TJ Ashford (Tequan Richmond) might be getting a recast or exiting the show. The actor’s tweet about an upcoming GH announcement may soon lead to a shake-up for the Ashford clan. Richmond recently landed a lead role on BET’s new TV series, Boomerang and another series called The Unsettling. Meanwhile, General Hospital posted a casting call for a TJ look-alike. Coincidence? Probably, not.

General Hospital Spoilers: Tequan Richmond Abandoning GH’s TJ Ashford?

General Hospital spoilers hint that Tequan Richmond may be leaving the soap to focus on his new roles. This is based on his tweet on October 6, “I’ll have things to say about General Hospital soon…TR”. If this is the case, many will not blame the actor for leaving. TJ’s appearances on General Hospital have been spotty for the last few years.

Although his GH character is currently missing in action, Richmond has been quite the opposite. Richmond, who has recurrently portrayed TJ since 2012, has been a busy bee. The world premiere of his new movie, Thriller, was just last month. Now, he has two new gigs. Does this mean he will soon abandon the role of TJ Ashford?

Tequan Richmond Off to Atlanta? – General Hospital Spoilers

Tequan Richmond’s new job on the BET show Boomerang is based in Atlanta, GA. His other show, The Unsettling, films in New Mexico. This may possibly conflict with his current position on General Hospital that films in LA. Richmond is young and energetic but commuting to three filming sites seems like a lot of work.

General Hospital casting news reveals the ABC soap is casting a role named “Terrance”. He needs to be a handsome, smart, charming, mid-20s, and an African-American male. “Terrance” is a college student. Presently, TJ is the only character on GH that meets this description. Perhaps with the recent recast of TJ’s mother, Jordan Ashford (Briana Nicole Henry), GH is following suit with her son.

Take a glimpse at the leaked audition script below for Terrance. It sounds a lot like Terrance could be TJ Ashford.

Whatever Richmond decides to do, his fans are likely to support. However, it will be a great loss for GH if he does decide to move on. Molly Lansing-Davis (Haley Pullos) and TJ have been an adorable couple for years. GH fans have been hoping that these two will spice things up and get more screen time.

Plus, Tequan Richmond is a three-time Daytime Emmy nominee for his work on GH. Don’t forget, TJ Ashford may also be needed to referee his mother’s wedding. With his Aunt Stella (Vernee Watson) on the loose, there is no telling what may happen without him. So in that light, a recast makes sense. Stay tuned for more on this breaking news.
