Grant Putnam is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital.

He was portrayed by actor Brian Patrick Clarke in 1983, 1984 and 1988. Clarke also played Grant Andrews from 1983-1986.


Putnam's earlier crimes included allowing his younger brother Ian to die in a skiing accident when they were both teenagers and murdering his doctor while escaping from a sanitarium. When he arrived in Port Charles, he framed Grant Andrews for murder and sabotaged his marriage to Celia Quartermaine. Robert Scorpio helped to send him back to the sanitarium.

A few years later, he was released again and wanted revenge on Robert. He attempted to kidnap Robert's daughter Robin Scorpio, and in the process murdered Filomena Soltini and kidnapped Anna Devane instead. He was eventually caught again and returned to the sanitarium.
