90210’s star Jason Thompson is being rumored to leave the ABC’s ‘General Hospital’, the show which he is best known for playing the role of Dr. Patrick Drake since 2005. He is reportedly thinking of leaving the show and behind the role of the neurosurgeon. The 38 year old good looking tall actor has been portraying the role of a doctor for over 8 years now, and feels like now is the right time to leave the show, especially now that his contract is about to end. The Canadian actor might not end up renewing his contract once it expires. Could the reason of him leaving the show could have anything to do with the storyline? Or are the rumors, just rumors?
Thompson’s character is currently involved with Sam Morgan and is even engaged to her after popping the question to her. Sam is still married to Jason Morgan who everyone thinks is dead, but the fact is that he’s very much alive and is known as Jake. Only few people are aware of his true identity including Nikolas Cassadine and Liz Webber, who the character of Jake aka Jason is engaged to. Jake has no idea who he is, because of a memory loss, and Liz is taking full advantage of that. At the time of the wedding, will Jason’s memories come back or will his memories come back before his wedding? Of course when his memories come back, he won’t have feelings for Liz, and upon seeing his wife, Sam, he will feel nothing but love for her. As soon as his memories return will be fight for his wife? The answer is Yes, he will. Jason still loves his wife, and his wife still loves Jason. And two people who love each other always find their ways back to each other. Once that happens Patrick’s character will be single again. Will the writers hook him up with another character or will he continue being single? Or will the actor who plays Patrick leave the show.
Jason is happily married to Paloma Jonas in real life since early 2015. The couple tied the knot in Mexico. His credits include appearing in an episode of “90210” and “Castle” in 2012. Back in 2010, he starred on a movie “Circle” as Gavin.
