GH’s Steve Burton Becomes Emotional Remembering Stuart Damon

Courtesy/CBS

On Friday’s special episode of The Talk, the afternoon series hosted the Soap Hub Awards for the first time as voted on by the fans.

During the Best Actor section, where General Hospital’s Steve Burton (Jason) was the winner from General Hospital and John McCook (Eric) was the winner from The Bold and the Beautiful, co-host Sheryl Underwood asked Steve about the passing of Stuart Damon (Ex- Alan Quartermaine), who played his on-screen father.

Burton became very emotional and with tears in his eyes expressed:  “Stuart was just our rock, like for everybody in the studio. And you can always judge a man by his actions, and he was kind to everybody, all the time. He made sacrifices for us, and his family, and I want people to know that not only was he an amazing actor, he was just an amazing man and an amazing father that I look up to.”

Watch the moment below featuring John McCook, Steve Burton, and the hosts of The Talk.

Then, let us know what you thought of Steve’s remembrances of the one and only Stuart Damon, via the comment section.

I think Steve & Stuart actually had a psuedo father/son relationship. Always thought it was fairly lame that Jason never got to resolve his estranged relationship with Alan before Alan died as a result of Jerry Jack’s terrorist takeover of the Metro Court.

I love Jason Quartermaine always will. He is the love of my life. I wish that he was a real person. I hate that he will be leaving GH once again. But he will always be in my heart when I watch the show. Love you Steve Burton.

GH did not do right by Stuart Damon. It was a big mistake killing Dr. Q off. Nice tribute to him by SB

There’s no confirmation he’s gone for good. Latest rumors are he’ll be back in a few months. “Sources” say he contracted Covid shortly after his first shot. There’s apparently a waiting time to resume vaccination after getting the virus.

If all this is true, I hand it to Burton, Frank and ABC to not responding to internet chatter and making for a true November sweeps moment.

Very sad that someone w 30 plus years w a show won’t abide by abc Disney s vaccine mandate! If he actually cares about the fans and his cast mates he’d have gotten vaccinated … sad

Glad he was killed off. No one could replace Stuart Damon in that role…RIP STUART

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
