In 1984 Reilly was cast as WSB agent Sean Donely on General Hospital. He remained a popular fan fave until 1994 when he opted not to renew his contract. The character was written out of the show in February 1995 but later returned sparingly in the late 1990s.
In 2005 Reilly took over the role of Alistair Crane on the NBC soap Passions and the following year left the show due to budget cuts. He later returned to the soap in 2007 and again was gone the following year.
