Nurse Felix DuBois, RN is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

He has been portrayed by actor Marc Samuel since the character's debut December 4, 2012.

The late, Sabrina Santiago was his best friend.

On February 2, 2018 it was announced that Felix will return to Port Charles appearing sometime this year.

In 2019, Samuel indicated Felix got his last name from Toussaint Dubois, a character on General Hospital: Night Shift.[2][3] Samuel also liked a fan's reply to his tweet that said it was cool that Felix was related to Toussaint.[4] The show itself has never made a direct reference to the possible familial relation between the two characters.


The casting was announced in November 2012, with Samuel's first airdate slated for December 4, 2012.

Samuel made his debut as a contract cast member.[5] Samuel revealed to Windy City Times that his management team set him up to audition with casting director Mark Teschner.

Samuel was then brought back for a screen test with Teresa Castillo, and they offered him the role a few days later.[6]

What appealed to Samuel the most was that Felix was such a "diverse character," and immediately sounded like "fun."[7]

Samuel defended the controversial character and insisted that Felix is not a "stereotype" or a "caricature," but he a "human being." Samuel described Felix as "campy, extra fierce," and at times he can be the "tough guy," when he feels the need to protect his loved ones.[8]

The inspiration for his portrayal of Felix comes from some of Samuel's friends. Felix will "verbally cut you," if you cross him. However, Samuel and his own father were adamant about not playing the role as a stereotype but Samuel trusted the head writer and executive producer to do well by the character.[9]

On November 10, 2014, it was reported that Samuel had been dropped to recurring status with the series.[10]

On February 3, 2020, broke the news that Samuel would return to GH when the actor teased his return on social media. [11] He returned on March 23, 2020.



Felix and his best friend, Sabrina

Felix first appears at General Hospital as a friend of fellow nursing student Sabrina Santiago. He finds out that Sabrina has a crush on Dr. Patrick Drake, and that she has a meeting with him about the Nurses' Ball, so he tells her she needs a makeover and pulls lipstick out of his pocket. After Sabrina puts on the lipstick however, it only embarrasses her when Patrick comes back because he tells her she has something on her teeth, the lipstick. Felix is interested in the Nurses' Ball and tells Sabrina to count him in with helping out. Felix sells cosmetics for CoeCoe Cosmetics and helps get Sabrina a meeting with Lucy Coe. In January 2013 after Carly drunkenly cuts her hair Felix helps Carly feel better about herself. In return Carly agrees to donate the Metro Court Ballroom for the Nurses Ball. He drags Sabrina and Elizabeth Webber to The Haunted Star and he mistakenly thinks Milo is gay and starts flirting with him.

He even tries to trick a homosexual lab tech, Brad Cooper, to give up information about his alliance with Britt Westbourne. It's later revealed that he and best friend Sabrina Santiago are roommates and live together. Felix is very angry when he realizes that Sabrina moved Britt into their apartment without his consent. Sabrina tells Felix about her plan for them to expose Britt as a liar to Patrick. Felix agrees to help with the plan.

Britt claims that she isn't trying to break them up, but Felix doesn't buy it. When he demands to know why Britt is the way that she is, she admits it's because of her parents. Felix demands that Britt prove that the baby she's carrying is Patrick's by having a paternity test conducted. When Britt refuses, he lets her know that Patrick is going to insist that it be done sooner or later. Even after a paternity test proves Patrick to be the father of Britt's baby Felix doesn't believe it. He is eventually proven correct when Britt tells the truth to avoid Patrick petitioning for full custody of the baby. On November 21, Sabrina asks him to be her person of honor and he accepts.
