Fans of General Hospital may notice Nikolas Cassadine looks different on the show tonight as the character will be played by actor Adam Huss instead of Marcus Coloma. As Huss takes on the well-known character, some have wondered the reason behind the temporary casting. We take a look at who General Hospital’s Adam Huss is.

Who is Adam Huss on General Hospital?

Adam Huss, born 1 March 1977, is an actor and writer who has appeared in roles across film and TV.

While he is set to join the cast on General Hospital tonight, he is no stranger to soaps as he previously appeared in Bold And The Beautiful in 2002, where he played the character Lance.

Elsewhere he is also known for his role as Joshua Kantos in the early seasons of the crime drama Power. More recently, he wrote and starred in his own short film, Strangers In The Night, which was premiered earlier this month.

Why is he playing Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital?

Earlier this week, Adam Huss took to Instagram as he announced he would temporarily be playing the role of Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital.

In the now-deleted Instagram post, he wrote: “I heard a little rumor that I’ll be on @generalhospitalabc this week, getting to play #nikolascassadine for a moment! Tune in Sept 29th Wed on ABC for the juicy stuff!

“Got to work with some amazing folks and consummate professionals! @maurawest @kinshriner Thank you to the best @markteschner and his amazing crew #generalhospital.”

An official reason for the temporary recasting is yet to be revealed with Marcus Coloma who has played the character since 2019, last posting about the series on Friday.

It seems fans of General Hospital will have to tune into the show tonight (Wednesday, 29 September) to learn more about Adam Huss’ gig as Nikolas Cassadine.

Adam Huss’ stint on the show is said to be brief as while hinting at his upcoming role as Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital on Instagram, he mentioned it would be “for a moment.”

Some sites believe his appearance on the long-running daytime soap will only be for one episode, as the actor told fans on Instagram to specifically watch out for tonight’s episode.
