'General Hospital' Casting News: Elizabeth's Son Cameron Has Been Recast Yet Again [Spoilers]

Stacy Carey

General Hospital spoilers have been hinting that there's a love triangle on the way involving teen characters Josslyn, Oscar, and Cameron. The show recently aged the character of Cameron by bringing in actor Cade McWatt, but now they've done another recast already. Viewers will see a new actor playing Cam beginning with Friday's show and it'll be interesting to see if this change does the trick.

Cade McWatt only appeared on General Hospital as Cameron in a handful of scenes, and it seems those running the show ultimately felt that he wasn't quite the right fit. According to spoilers shared by SheKnows Soaps, originally detailed by Soap Opera Digest, young actor William Lipton is taking over as Cam beginning with the August 10 show.

Lipton has appeared in a handful of previous projects, including James Franco's The Adventures of Thomasina Sawyer along with shorts titled Finding Hammy and A Girl Named Khan. William is also quite passionate about music and he's a part of the band named WJM.

The young actor and musician noted via his latest Instagram post that he is "so thrilled" to be joining General Hospital and playing the role of Cameron. The show hasn't commented on their decision to let go of McWatt so quickly and bring in Lipton. However, some fans speculate that they wanted someone who could pull off more of a "bad boy" vibe to counter Oscar's "good guy" persona.

Lipton made a brief appearance in the preview for Friday's show and it seems likely that viewers can expect to see a lot more of him in the episodes ahead. Summer is usually when teen storylines get a lot of attention, but it looks like things took a while to come together on this upcoming love triangle.

Will William Lipton be sticking around now as Cameron for a while? General Hospital spoilers hint that there is some juicy stuff on the way for these Port Charles teens and additional details should emerge soon.
