    In 2006, Hogestyn left his non-contract role on General Hospital to begin appearing on The Bold and the Beautiful in the contract role of "Harry Jackson," a new character tied to fellow former General Hospital star Jack Wagner's "Nick Marone." (The character of Lucas on General Hospital was written out without an explanation following Hogestyn's departure, but has since been mentioned that Lucas lives in Seattle.)In early November 2006, however, as Harry's screentime diminished, Hogestyn was shifted to recurring status, and the character of Harry has not been seen on-screen in 2007.
