Dr. Leo Marcus Julian, MD[1] is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital and its spin-off General Hospital: Night Shift.

Leo was portrayed by Dominic Rains in 2007, and when he was unavailable for season two of Night Shift in 2008, his brother Ethan Rains was cast.


Dr. Leo Julian is a heart surgeon at General Hospital. When he was about four or five years old, he was adopted by the Julian family. After he was adopted, his adoptive parents had a biological son, Dr. Kyle Julian.

The two brothers do not get along very well, and their relationship becomes even more strained when Leo sleeps with Kyle's best friend and roommate Dr. Claire Simpson. Leo is also a rock guitarist, but has chosen the doctor career path instead.

Since GH: Night Shift ended in 2008, Dr. Julian hasn't appeared on-screen. However, for a period of time in 2011, his name was occasionally heard being called over the PA system at General Hospital.


  1. His full name was stated by his mother on September 23, 2008.
