Scott Reeves to Exit 'General Hospital'

General Hospital star Scott Reeves, who has played Dr. Steven Lars Webber since 2009, has been let go.

The actor posted a cryptic tweet earlier in the evening, only to reveal he had been let go. “Hey guys, u know how much u mean 2 me and I wanted u 2 hear it from me, I was let go from GH today and my last day should b in Feb sometime.”

Reeves joined cast at the end of 2009 and played a role in the triangle involving Steve’s sister Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), as well as taking over as Chief of Staff. Steve later found love with Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) and faced a blast from his past in the form of his ex-lover Maggie Wurth (Kodi Kitchen). 2012 has been a rough year for Steve, as his estranged mother, the deranged Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) returned and wreaked havoc on his life.

At present time, there’s no information on how the character will exit, or if the role will be recast.
