Michael Blake Kruse’s previous acting credits

General Hospital fans are eager to learn more about Kruse. The actor was born in Oceanside, California, as the son of Marine parents. Kruse’s family later relocated to Iowa, where he played baseball during high school and college. After graduating from Central College with a major in Sociology, Kruse decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.

Kruse started as a model, landing campaigns with Nike and Apple. He soon began getting acting gigs in movies like Double Play, The Ugly Christmas Sweater, and Christmas Harmony. He also had guest roles on TV shows like Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy. The actor will be gaining more attention thanks to his soap opera role.

Rory Cabrera’s ties to other Port Charles citizens

With Rory being a contract role on General Hospital, fans expect big things for the character. Of course, the handsome cop will have the attention of many ladies. But viewers are already shipping him with Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud).

Britt’s been going through a difficult time since the death of her boyfriend, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Although she still misses Jason, she realizes it’s time to move on. Britt’s ready to get back in the dating game, and her next suitor could be Rory.

Aside from Rory’s love life, his family and background will also be mysterious. Speculation is that Rory is related to Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) and Selina Wu (Lydia Look). Since Selina is part of a mob, her profession will spell trouble for Rory. While the cop does everything by the book, he may break the law to help his family.
