UPDATE: Bryan Craig reached out to me today via e-mail. He says he cannot talk about the case, but that the allegations are untrue.
If you are following General Hospital's Bryan Craig on twitter you probably saw this tweet:
If you are like me you wondered what it was all about, particularly since Youthful Daze seems to have no shortage of high profile actors wanting to be on the show. Clicking on the tweet to see the replies revealed that Craig is apparently being sued by the show's creator, Bryan James. Further details were difficult to find, so I went right to the source and talked to Bryan James about his lawsuit. According to him, Bryan Craig was under contract with Youthful Daze and was paid a sum total of $20,000 in advance. A problem arose when, according to James, Bryan started making excuses not to come in to work. James accuses him of being in breach of contract for that and for not promoting the show, which is apparently also included in the contract. In addition, James said he offered to let Bryan come back on the show and finish filming, but he refused. Bryan James repeatedly assured me this is just business for him and he simply wants to be reimbursed for the money he paid Bryan Craig. However, James does say he fears for his safety as a result of this lawsuit, saying that his tires were slashed the day Bryan Craig was served. He also says Craig and fiancé Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt, GH) have been harassing him online and by phone, and says the couple recently showed up to his house uninvited and banged on his door. As a result, James plans to file a restraining order against Bryan Craig. Regardless, James insists he has nothing against Bryan personally, he just wants his money back.
