At the recently completed San Diego Comic-Con, General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Silas) was on the scene once again.  This time the actor/writer/producer was promoting and previewing his latest graphic novel, Credence: Lose This Skin.

From Blackwatch Comics come this story, written by Michael Easton and with art by Steven Perkins. Credence: Lose This Skin which picks up after the events of the Credence graphic novel, continuing the story of the character who “Gives the Bad Lieutenant a run for his money” (-Abel Ferarra).

It’s been a busy month for Easton, as we previously reported his film Ultraviolent was named “Best of Show” in the Best Short Films competition.

Check out the very cool trailer for Credence: Lose This Skin after the jump, which is set to the music of Nine Inch Nails! Then let us know what you think of the multi-talented Mr. Easton!

I am in awe of his many talents. Michael excels at all he sets out to accomplish.

Wonder if Michael is really working out an alter-ego, more similar to his role in OLTL, since writers obviously aren’t picking up on his acting strengths and what he could really add to GH. Maybe they should let him collaborate with his story-line, or just let him write it himself. Talk about being totally underused on GH. At least they haven’t made him silly like Nina or Ava…yet.

P.S. If the ratings are looking for the younger demo, graphic novels sell well to this group, mainly guys. But increasing females, especially anime with girl heroines. Another reason to “consult” with Michael.

Rose, hi
Both Frank and Ron worked with Michael on OLTL, I believe they know his talents..
He has not been in a story because he has been busy doing his movie, writing, producing, and promoting his Ultraviolent movie etc..
Then he wrote his new novel ”Credence” and promoted it..
Michael has been a very busy man outside of GH..
Perhaps now that’ his ‘ movie is doing well he will have more time for GH 🙂
I hope so! I really love Michael Easton !!

It would be great to have Michael write a story for GH, he is deep dark writer !!

Really looking forward to the books release. Easton is incredibly talented and extends a bravery in his writing that many would cower in fear to the level of vulnerability. Michael just bleeds honesty. Awesome.

I thing he’s pretty awesome, too, Su. And, I hope you’re right when you say that now he will have more air time on GH.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if he and Nina would fall back in love? It seems that this love-lost ‘thing’ with Franco is not meant to be.
Nina thinks she is losing her mind, which means she will pay Silas more visits…he does have a way of assuring her. Perhaps it will be Silas who will uncover Rick’s and MadMaddie’s diabolical scheme.

@CeeCee….Bonjour….
I hope your right CeeCee… What Rick & MadMaddie are currently doing
to Nina is utterly reprehensible. How you feel about Sonny… I feel X10
toward Despicable Rick… This isn’t his first go round, mistreating the
women of PC seems to be his ongoing theme. Silas has a calming effect
on Nina, he’s able to reason with her and keep her somewhat grounded.
Between Silas, Ava and Franco… Hopefully one of them will figure it out.

CeeCeem hi..
Silas feels very guilty that his kidnapping Avery has brought Nina to her situation of her believing she is losing her mind..
I see good stuff with Silas and Nina coming!

Hi, Fanny….Bon après-midi.
Now, I have seen it all. Just when I thought the ultimate skeeviness had Alexis’ name written all over it; along comes MadMaddie to steal the show. Seriously?? Not only am I shocked that Miss MadMaddie would hurt her daughter thus; I get grossed out with hers and Rick’s make-out sessions. She’s older than either of my grandmothers. I just can’t…Oh, my Lord!!
He is so repulsive, Fanny. As I said earlier…Rick is Sonny’s brother. Sadly, such creepy-crawly characters exist in real life.
It is time for all these people get their comeuppance.

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
