Ashton Arbab who kickstarted his acting career at the age of 6 is now playing the recurring role of Dev Cerci on General Hospital. Arbab spoke with Star Kidz in their countdown to Christmas series and shared what it was like joining the cast of this long-running, well-established daytime drama.
He said, "It has been the thrill of my life to be on such an iconic show as General Hospital. My first scenes on General Hospital were with the legends Maurice Benard and Tristan Rogers in Turkey. I was a street rat, pick pocket kid that agreed to help Sonny Corinthos find his son Dante. I had no idea that Dev would be coming back and finding his way to Port Charles. It is so exciting to get the scripts and see where the writers are taking the character Dev Cerci. It is an honor to be working there."
Arbab looks up to Maurice Benard and highlighted the positive influence that he has been in his life. He also revealed that he will be releasing another song in January. In regards to working with the teens on the show, he said, "We are all really close and enjoy working together. I have been friends with Eden since I was little, we use to perform at recitals together and we live in the same town. William and I have passed time on set singing and playing the guitar in our dressing rooms. Sydney and I are doing the same online school and are both in 11th grade. They are all so talented and it is a pleasure to work with them and be their friend."
Ashton Arbab made his debut as Dev Cerci on General Hospital earlier this year with a handful of episodes before being brought back as an official cast member. His list of acting credits include episodes of Alexa & Katie, Mutt & Stuff, and he dropped his single “I Fall In Like Too Easily” this year as well.
