Bryan Craig, who plays Morgan Corinthos on ABC‘s General Hospital is exiting his role on the daytime drama. Soap Opera Digest reports his final episodes will air in November. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) son is currently embroiled in a love triangle with Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) and Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Palmer Watkins).
Craig won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in March of this year. The character is in the midst of a Bipolar Disorder storyline.
