Dear Soaps,
Who played the original A.J. on General Hospital and how many actors have played him since then? — David435

Dear David435,
Since A.J., which stands for Alan Junior, was born on the show (who could forget Lesley Webber delivering him as Monica blurted out her baby's father was really Lesley's own husband, Rick, and not Alan? — though she was wrong), there have been a lot of actors who have portrayed him. Let's take a walk down memory lane. To date, seven actors have played the role of A.J. The first six were Abraham Geary; Jason Marsden; Christopher Ren Nelson; Justin Whalin, who went on to play Jimmy Olson on the prime-time series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman; Gerald Hopkins and Sean Kanan. Currently, Billy Warlock is playing the role of A.J., sporting a dark head of hair (at times A.J. has been blond and fair like his mother, Monica). Warlock has played the role since June 1997. (D.
