Brando Corbin is a fictional character on the ABC Soap opera General Hospital. He is the son of Gladys Corbin.

He has been portrayed by Johnny Wactor since the character's introduction on January 30, 2020.


Brando Corbin is first mentioned on June 25, 2019 by Mike Corbin. Mike mixes up Dev Cerci with Brando, the son of Mike’s cousin Gladys. He says Brando’s father was some deadbeat who never married Gladys and he didn’t stick around.

Sonny Corinthos gets the idea to pass off Dev as Brando’s son, “Devin Corbin”. Sonny tries to pay off Gladys to claim that her son Brando had a fictional wife who he married in Iraq and brought back to the U.S. where his wife died giving birth to Dev. Gladys argues that Brando died during Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq in 2003 and he didn’t have any kids. After Sonny offers her more money, Gladys agrees to the deal.



Brando is shot defending Carly

On January 30, 2020, it is revealed that Brando is alive and he was disguised as one of Sonny’s warehouse men. He is shot during a gunfight in Sonny’s coffee warehouse while protecting Carly. Sonny’s warehouse man Tony tells Carly that the man who saved her doesn’t work for Sonny. Then Gladys comes out of hiding and recognizes her son Brando.

Brando recovers from being shot

On January 31, as Brando recovers from his wound at General Hospital, Carly finds a picture of Gladys and Dev within Brando’s belongings. On February 3, Carly tells Sonny about the picture. Gladys is questioned by Sonny and she explained that Brando was dead to her since he had gotten involved with some bad people. Brando tells Sonny that he got in a big fight with Gladys and left Bridgeport. He followed Gladys on her MyFace page and she mentioned that she was staying with Mike’s son Sonny. Brando saw the Christmas picture of Gladys and her ‘grandson’ Dev online. Sonny threatens Gladys about telling Brando that Dev is being passed off as his son. Later Brando asks Gladys who the boy in the picture is and she tells him Dev is his son.
