Dr. Patrick Drake on the ABC Television Network's "General Hospital"
Jason Thompson joined the cast of "General Hospital" in November 2005 as Dr. Patrick Drake, Noah's arrogant yet brilliant neurosurgeon son. Thompson received consecutive nominations for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2011 and 2012.
The St. Albert, Canada native left home at the young age of 18 to find fame and fortune in the modeling industry. Soon thereafter, a respectable career in modeling and commercials – including for The Gap – allowed Thompson to pay the bills and afford to travel internationally. He admits that becoming an actor was never far from his thoughts.
Thompson has an impressive resume of theater, film and television roles. His theater credits include lead roles in the plays "The Academy," "More than You" and "Jakob." He also starred in the films "Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy" and "Divide."
His television credits include guest-starring roles on "Deep," "Felicity," "Zoe," "MTV Undressed" and "Flipper." In addition, he portrayed the role of Dr. Drake in the highly-successful primetime spinoff, "General Hospital: Night Shift," on SOAPnet.
Thompson currently lives in Los Angeles and loves to play hockey and surf. In addition he co-owns two restaurants in Edmonton, Canada.
