Christopher was at the Mid-American All Indian Center in Wichita this weekend to sign autographs and see his mother. Tyler is a member of the Choctaw-Seneca Tribe. In a article with McPherson-Sentinel, he said the following about leaving GH and going to "The Lying Game" in the fall:
“Our budget has been cut so much over the years and the people that have been there a long time have had their salaries bumped and they are the first to go unfortunately...Some people are going to feel the wrath unfortunately,” said Christopher.
General Hospital isn’t the only soap opera suffering. Just recently “One Life to Live” and “All my Children” were cancelled after decades on the air.
“It’s not a good sign,” said Christopher.
Despite leaving his steady role, Christopher is thrilled about moving on and his new role.
“I’m anxious to see how they are going to use me. It’s a good role. I’m playing a Native American, that seems to be my thing and that’s cool,” said Christopher.
