What You Need To Know About Adam Huss, General Hospital's New Nikolas

"General Hospital" fans were stunned when it was revealed that actor Marcus Coloma was leaving the soap opera. Coloma first stepped into the role of Nikolas Cassadine in late 2019, a role that was originated by soap vet Tyler Christoper back in 1996. Over the past few years, fans grew to love Coloma's Nikolas. However, as the end of his contract neared, talks of some behind-the-scenes drama began to surface, including rumors that Coloma was fired and refused to film his final scenes (via Soaps In Depth).

In November 2022, Coloma was forced to take time away from the sudser when he contracted COVID-19. At the time, actor Adam Huss was cast to replace Coloma during his illness. Coloma later returned to the role and aired as Nikolas until January 26, 2023 (via Soaps). However, the actor left the role once more before finishing up his storyline.

"Unfortunately, due to health issues with his recent COVID exposure, the network graciously agreed that he should not film the remaining few days of the year," Coloma's rep told Deadline. Now, a familiar face will be stepping into the role of Nikolas as Huss will be playing the character yet again, and he seems up for the challenge.

Adam Huss has appeared in multiple soap operas

Adam Huss took to his Instagram account on Tuesday to share the exciting news of his "General Hospital" return. The actor was shown an outpouring of love by fans. "These are such nice comments. Thank you so much," he commented on the post. Huss is a New York native who boasts quite the resume. The actor graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama, per his website. During his career, he's been featured on other soap operas such as "Days of Our Lives," "Passions," and "The Bold and The Beautiful" (via IMDb). He's also appeared on television shows like "Everwood," "Monk," "Las Vegas," "CSI: NY," and "NCIS," as well as several films.

Huss now lives in Los Angeles with his husband, Adam Bucci. According to Men's Vows, the couple met when they were both cast members in a musical, and Bucci served as Huss' understudy. The couple tied the knot in July 2019. The pair said their vows in Topanga, California, in front of their closest friends and family members and used the hashtag #AdamSquared as their wedding mantra.

"General Hospital" fans are now excited to see Huss back in the role of Nikolas Cassadine, and only time will tell if the actor will stick around Port Charles on a more permanent basis.
