Kurth revealed that he’s grateful for being given the chance to work on both soaps simultaneously.
“The wonderful thing is that DAYS and GH coordinated and worked together and said that I can still go do GH,” Kurth said.
“DAYS gets the first choice if I have to work. But I can still do GH and Frank is allowing me to go do DAYS and also knows he can use me if he needs me to come on GH,” he added.
He feels very lucky for being able to do both shows. Plus he teased that he may be back on General Hospital in a couple of months.
