Rick Springfield is said to be returning to General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake along with his son in April.
According to People, Springfield’s son, Liam Springthorpe, will be making his debut on the show. He'll be playing an undercover cop.
Springfield’s character has a lot going on in his life. He says, “He lost his wife and became a drunk and regretted all these terrible, sinful ways and then cleaned his act up when he almost died from the alcohol," according to Today.
The “Jessis’s Girl” singer also states he is quite happy to be seeing his old costars again since they do not keep in contact.
"I don't think any of us are good at keeping in touch. It's like workmates that you like, or you get together with an old band and you are instantly back to where you were. There's nothing that needs to be maintained,” he says.
As for Springthorpe, he is excited to be on the show but is relieved he is not in the same scenes as his father. He says he tries to stay away from his father’s path respectfully, but also says "I think this is a really good way to kind of go about getting my foot in the door.”
