“As an actor, we’re lucky anytime we get a job. To be on a show that has a fanbase that is this loyal and cares this much, I’m truly gonna miss it,” Johnny added.
“I’m gonna miss reading y’all’s comments and opinions on what the character should do, or what the writer should do. It’s really a unique experience.”
Brando died at the hands of Port Charles’ newest serial killer, The Hook.
He did tease that he might be back in some capacity, saying: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.”

“Thank you for caring, and thank you for the support and the well wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or other films or shows.”
The actor added that there are some films in the works for him.
Brando Corbin joined the GH family in January 2020 and quickly became a fan-favorite character.
He is the son of Gladys Corbin, so fans thought he would stick around for a lot longer.
General Hospital fans were thrilled when Brando got involved with Sasha, hoping that their relationship would help her stay clean.
However, their storyline quickly shifted after she became pregnant and the baby died after birth.
Sasha then turned back to drugs and Brando struggled to get her help, but eventually got her into rehab.
While things were starting to look up, their world came crashing down once again after he was attacked by The Hook.
He was quickly rushed to the hospital and managed to survive surgery, but it wasn’t enough to keep him alive, as the killer’s hook was laced with poison.
NO BAD BLOOD
Johnny talked to Soap Opera Digest after his departure from the show and told the outlet that there was no bad blood between him and the show.
He also said that his schedule was so hectic the last few days that he “was filming so many pages, I didn’t really have time to kind of think or be emotional or reflect on anything.”
“I gave a little speech. I knew that I would want to say something just because of my time there and my relationships with the people in the cast and crew. I was a little emotional,” Johnny said, after wrapping his last scene.
The soaps actor did not expect to leave the show so soon after his character arrived, but assured the outlet there is no bad blood.
“I wish everyone at GH the best,” he ended his statement.
