Title Doctor

Dr. Ian Devlin was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. He was portrayed by actor Seamus Dever.


Dr. Devlin appeared from January to May 2008 as a doctor at General Hospital who was involved in a drug-importing scheme with Claudia Zacchara and Jerry Jacks. He was a former friend of Patrick Drake in medical school.

On April 7, 2008, he was hired by Claudia to kill Sonny Corinthos. However, the attempt on Sonny's life was botched and he ends up shooting a 12-year old Michael Corinthos which puts Michael into a coma. This allowed the show to look for an older actor to play Michael.  The show wanted to SORASed Michael, but didn't find anyone until March 2009 when Garrett appeared as an 16-year old Michael.

On May 6, 2008, he abducted Maxie Jones and brought her at a park. Later, her friends Damian Spinelli and Jason Morgan arrive and order him to let her go. Dr. Devlin was holding her at scalpel point while Jason asks him who hired him as a hit man. Maxie is able to break free and reunites with Spinelli.

As Dr. Devlin moved towards Maxie to finish her off, Jason shoots him in the chest. Dr. Devlin falls to the ground and Jason commands him to name the person who hired him to kill Sonny. He tries to say Claudia, but Dr. Devlin dies from his gunshot wound.
