William Devry Updates Fans on His Current Situation


Julian Jerome's death still haunts General Hospital viewers

When General Hospital killed off William deVry's popular character Julian Jerome his fans were in an uproar. Julian had been trying to turn his life around and Julexis lovers were hopeful he would reunite with the love of his life Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn). They were a popular couple with amazing chemistry who really could heat up the screen with their love scenes. The powers that be obviously did not agree with the viewers because they went out of their way to seemingly destroy the character. Julian had been sent to jail and was off the soap for quite some time. Upon his return to Port Charles in 2018 many viewers expected that he and Alexis would pick up where they left off. Instead bringing deVry back was actually the beginning of the end and it took two years for the final nail to be placed in the coffin. Today two years after his departure there are GH viewers who still complain about the way the popular actor was axed and wish he would return from the dead.

Julexis power

Julexis devotees were disappointed when after Julian returned the only love scene between the two turned out to be a dream. Alexis began dating Dr.Neil Burne (Joe Flanigan) after having had a one-night stand with Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton). Julian hooked up with Kim Nero (Tamera Braun) and began running Charlie's Pub. He also git caught up with Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) and her schemes which disappointed viewers who said it was all out of his character. The end came when Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) shot Jerome and his last scene was lying in a body bag after being pulled from the water. It was obvious that the powers that be wanted everyone to know that Julian was dead and gone and not coming back.

The future for William deVry

General Hospital has brought several characters back from the dead and there seems to be some unfinished business where Julian is concerned. It was revealed that Kim had a son named Andy and it was implied the baby belonged to the former mob boss. Nero had tried to sleep with Drew Cain (then Billy Miller) to get pregnant and replace their son Oscar Nero who died of a brain tumor. (Garren Stitt). She did sleep with Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who had Drew's memories but the timeline does not fit. Ava Jerome (Maura West) sold Julian's Pub to Sonny who is allowing Phyllis to run it. Alexis seems to be moving on with Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison) and Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth) has adopted Julian's son Leo whose mother is Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero). it looks as if the show wanted to erase all traces of the character and this has troubled many fans. Best of luck to William deVry and hopefully someone will soon make use of his talents and he will notify his followers that his luck has changed.
