Is Marc Anthony Samuel Gay?
In the TV series General Hospital, Anthony Samuel plays the role of Felix DuBois, a nurse. However, people were outraged by Felix because they thought he was a caricature of a gay guy, and this led to harsh condemnation of the character.
In an interview with Windy City Times in 2013, Anthony Samuel talked about the backlash against his character Felix. He stated, "I completely understand. When you have a character that is introduced as a minority, you're going to have, as a minority, a greater sensitivity to make sure you have fair representation in the media. Some people may have been ready to see another stereotype played out and maybe they jumped a touch fast."
In the same interview, Anthony Samuel also talked about how he got the role in the series. He stated that his management firm arranged for him to attend an audition with Mark Teschner, the casting director for General Hospital. After that, they called him a few days later and asked to screen him for the position.
Anthony Samuel entered, took the screen test, and struck up a conversation with Teresa Castillo (Sabrina Santiago). A few days later, they offered him the part because he had a good connection with her off-camera as a person.
General Hospital is a daytime drama that takes place mostly in Port Charles, a coastal town in western New York. The characters in ongoing plots are those who work at General Hospital, in the business world, most particularly for the Quartermaines' company E.L.Q., and in some sort of international intrigue involving former World Security Bureau agents.
The ABC television network aired the first episode of General Hospital on 1 April 1963. It is Hollywood's longest-running serial, as well as the longest-running entertainment show in ABC television history. With 14 wins, General Hospital holds the record for the most 'Daytime Emmy Awards' for 'Outstanding Drama Series.'
