Since 1996, he was there Stefan Cassadine. On January 14, he will be the last appearance in the United States of Stephen Nichols (ex-Dr. Skyler Gates) in the soap General Hospital.

Santa Barbara online
It would be a shame to conclude this page without mentioning the birth of a new site entirely dedicated to Gordon Thomson, the 3rd Mason Capwell in Santa Barbara, but also hero of Dynasty : Gordon Thomson fan page. On the menu : biography of the actor, press articles and many photos, unfortunately often already seen elsewhere on the net, in particular on this site. But the initiative is very creditable and will largely fill all the fans of the actor.
