Robert Palmer Watkins Breaks His Silence On 'Brutal' Firing From Common Hospital

Robert Palmer Watkins’ time as Dillon Quartermaine on “Common Hospital” got here to a screeching halt whereas he was away filming different initiatives. He was taking pictures a film throughout his accredited day without work, and it was throughout that break from “GH” that the rug was pulled out from beneath him. “I used to be taking pictures a film, so I used to be taking a couple-week break from ‘Common Hospital’ to shoot the final three days, and I truly came upon that they had been releasing me from contract whereas I used to be on my lunch break,” he instructed Soaps. “In order that was fairly brutal, and I used to be attempting to carry it collectively.”

Nevertheless, if being unceremoniously fired from his job at “GH” wasn’t sufficient, information leaked to the media in regards to the unlucky circumstance. The powers that be on the cleaning soap opera confronted Watkins in regards to the leak, even going so far as to insinuate he could also be behind releasing the knowledge to the press. “I do not know the way, but it surely leaked out actually the day I came upon,” Watkins stated “It was all around the web. So I do not know the way that occurred. And I even obtained a name from ‘Common Hospital [because] they weren’t comfortable that it was leaked out, and I used to be like, ‘I did not leak it.'”

Since Watkins was fired as Dillon, the character is nearly by no means talked about by anybody on the sudser, making the actor’s removing much more vital.
