Sean Blakemore exits General Hospital


Less than a year after his long-overdue return to General Hospital.

Daytime Emmy winner Sean Blakemore (Shawn Butler) has confirmed that he has exited the ABC soap again.

In a post on Twitter, Blakemore informed fans that he had opted to leave the show due to "other obligations."

The actor did not reveal what those obligations might be, but Blakemore did shoot down rumors that he had been fired.

On Friday, Blakemore's on-screen alter ego informed Alexis that he would be relocating to San Francisco.

However, by the end of the episode, fans had thought that Shawn might reconsider and stick around in Port Charles to rekindle a romance with Alexis.

It looks like that will not be the case.

Blakemore joined the General Hospital cast in 2011 in a recurring capacity, but the actor was quickly signed to a contract.

He remained with the show through 2015, an exit that caught many fans by surprise.

Sean was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit, which he was not cleared of until just last year.

In his previous time away from GH, Blakemore kept busy.

He appeared on Devious Maids, landed a role in the BET pilot for The Yard, appeared on the digital comedy series Dangerous Curves.

Shared scenes with Brad Pitt in Ad Astra and booked a regular series role in the Freeform pilot Close Up.
