Young General Hospital character Danny Morgan is now being played by Zakary Risinger, who made his first appearance as Jason and Sam's son during the soap's Thanksgiving episodes.

General Hospital's Thanksgiving week episodes didn't just include the Wyndham's Thanksgiving Parade -- they also included a parade of new young faces. Well, just two -- but the new additions are worthy of a parade!

As Soap Central previously reported, Brady Bauer took over the role of Dante's (Dominic Zampgrogna) son, Rocco. Meanwhile, actor Zakary Risinger made his debut in the role of Sam's son, Danny.

Risinger's parents shared the news of their son's GH gig on Instagram in a post that reads, "Excited to finally be able to share that Zakary has joyfully accepted the recurring role of Danny Morgan on @generalhospitalabc airng today. We are so GRATEFUL 🥰 Big thank you to his team @osbrinkagency @emilyurbani @herecomestreibel @abbymariej @braveartistsmanagement and @markteschner for believing in our hard working kid!"
