Days of our Lives and General Hospital are now officially confirming what TVGuide.com told you last week: Soap vet John Ingle has left his gig as Days' Mickey Horton to reprise his signature role as GH's crusty patriarch, Edward Quartermaine.
"We were so fortunate that John Ingle was available to us at a time when we were desperate to fill story and were dealing with the departure of [Mickey's original portrayer] John Clarke," says Days chief Ken Corday. "We have loved having [Ingle] here, both professionally and personally, but also know a big part of his heart and history is with General Hospital. Our loss is certainly GH’s gain, and we wish John nothing but continued success. He will truly be missed!"
