GH's Christopher Back To Work

GH's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) returns to Port Charles this week, having fully recovered from surgery he had after suffering a broken arm in a fall.  Tyler's back and he's in great spirits," confirms a GH spokesperson.  "His surgery was a success and he's very happy to be back.

According to the rep, the actor will not be in a cast on-screen.  "That's what the surgery was for," the rep notes.

As previously reported, Christopher's role was temporarily recast with Chris Beetem, best known to daytime audiences as ATWT's ex-Jordan.  "Great cast.  Great crew.  A great time all around," states Beetem of the gig.  Adds the rep, "We certainly appreciate him pinch-hitting for Tyler when he was gone, and we'd welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future."

Christopher's on-screen brother, Greg Vaughan (Lucky), reported that while the actor regretted having to miss a scheduled appearance at ABC's Super Soap Weekend due to the injury, the show's executives made sure the actor was taken care of -- and even filled his refrigerator with food when he came home from the hospital.  "He's so high-maintenance," joked Vaughan.  "I was with him all day, every day. It got to the point where I was like, 'I've got to go to work today, pal.  I gotta go [laughs].'  But all things considered, he's in good shape.
