General Hospital

GH's Steve Burton on "The Women in Jason's Life" fantasy scenes in upcoming episodes!

Photo Credit: Jim Warren

This ought be good and should make many fan groups happy, upset, angry or all three!  But it looks very intriguing! On the upcoming August 26th and 29th episodes of General Hospital, as Jason’s life hang in the balance with a life-or-death procedure following his horrific car accident, many Port Charles residents are left wondering, what Jason will wake up should he survive the surgery?  The Jason of old? The current Jason? Or some other brain-damaged version of Jason?

However, it’s up to the women in his life to fantasize what their life would be like with him, if he hadn’t turned into a mobster.  So Elizabeth, Sam, Monica, and Carly all have fantasy scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) during these pivotal episodes.  Burton, one of the most famous leading men in soaps, weighs in on the material with TV Guide! Here is an excerpt!

Burton on the Liason fans, who have never stopped hoping for a Liz and Jason reunion: “They have a real passion for seeing Elizabeth and Jason together and this is only going to make it worse! But that’s a good thing. [Laughs] Liz’s fantasy is going to drive the fans crazy! I think this idea has always been in the viewers’ minds. What if Jason got in another accident? How would he wake up? Would he return to his old self? So we’re doing some cool stuff with that. With the exception of Sam, who doesn’t want Jason to change at all, everyone wants him to be somebody else. Monica wants her son back. Carly still has that little glimmer of hope that it might work out romantically for her and Jason. Their fantasies were a chance for me, after many, many years, to lighten up and loosen up and have fun playing a few different Jasons.”

So this raises the age-old question…who should Jason ultimately end up with? Liz, Sam or perhaps, Carly? Let us know!

so agree with you. jasam 4ever

that’s not what he really said –he said she didn’t want him to change at all–that could mean she’s afraid of what will happen if he changes-or she prefers him as a thug. either way they are a terrible couple with zero chemistry

“A serial killer.” – like Steve Burton said. This pairing will go down as a “serial killer”.

Question… what about robin? robin was a huge part of jason after the accident. one of the best scenes ever and one of my favorite scenes of all time when robin was leaving for paris because she got scared with jason getting shot and he did not want to leave the mob. I believe he won an emmy for those scenes and robin isn’t one of the ladies… hello? thats a big let down for those who have followed GH for years. where are the writers? do they not know the history of this show?

aria

cris, i agree, Robin is so pivotal to who jason is today, the fact that he can actually talk in full senteces and carry a conversation and has an inch of compasion is all due to robin. so i wish they would play of that history too.

wolf is doing the same thing guza was, he would only give u a little liz and jason then make it obvious that they prefer the pairing of sam and jason. if the show really wanted to be smart they would right out do a triangle story or quadrangle w/ liz, jason,sam an lucky. instead of having them in their seperate story. wanna get fans really going at it and rooting for their fave couple then for goodness sake just start with a story involving all of them together.

Heather

He should be with Elizabeth. Not just because they are so pretty together, lol, and because the actors have phenominal chemistry together. They have a history together that goes back over a decade. They have a love for each other that all of us, in real life, strive to find for ourselves. They share a son. Two legacy characters, who accept each other, flaws and all…who don’t try to twist themselves into knots trying to be something different to fit into each other’s lives, because they just do fit together. No whitewashing, no hiding, no secrets. They don’t have to be the same, they are the ultimate yin and yang, dark and light…good girl with the bad boy. They compliment each other, and bring out the best in each other. Jason Morgan and Elizabeth Webber. Put them together and watch the ratings SOAR!!

Kelly
Kelly

I agree wth you 100%. Jason and Elizabeth all the way!!!!!

Peyton
Peyton

Pretty together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are freakin crazy, Jason and Sam are picture perfect, she is a bad ass, smoking hot PI and He is a hard core, hot as hell mob enforcer….I honestly don’t think I need to say anymore, Elizabeth needs to go and say 3 hail marries and be glad and oh so happy that she somehow got impregnated with a heartbroken drunk man’s child that she has some claim to fame for! Be gone Lizzy, Jason loves Sam!

Keeks

Jason should be with Elizabeth of course. She’s his safe haven from the violence in his world. She’s the light to his dark. Looking forward to seeing how Elizabeth views Jason in this dream!

Tori

Jason should go back with Elizabeth. He had a relationship with her before his accident and after. They were great as friends and even better together romantically. They never said they didn’t love each other, just that it couldnt work out. No man in the world would return to a woman (Sam) who endangred his son on more than one occassion. There is just no chemistry between them. I am glad to see that the writers are at least acknowledging Jason and Elizabeths connection.

edith johnston
edith johnston

jason & liz didnt have a relationship before his accident, they didnt meet until after his accident

Kelly

jason and sam are to wrong for each other. I do agree with what she did to his son with elizabeth.How could he take sam back and marry her. Im so glad that she is having francos baby. GO LIASON!!!!!!!!!

Peyton
Peyton

Eat your Heart out Kelly! Say hello to Daniel Edward MORGAN, yep….Suck it, Sam has Jason’s only living child, made in love, marriage and the actual desire and want of a child……Loving every minute of this!

Kathy
Kathy

Jason belongs with Sam and no one else for many reasons but mostly because she loves him for exactly who he is and does not want him to change or be someone that he is not. If you have to fantasize about someone being someone that they are not in order to be with them then it should be obvious that you don’t really want to be with that person and need to let go.

Alva

Liz has never ask Jason to change, never. Sam isn’t the only one people keep saying this tell me when and were?

edith johnston
edith johnston

i so agree with you Kathy. liz may never said she wanted jason 2 change but she sure didnt want 2 let anyone know about their relationship or that he was jakes father, as if jason was her dirty little secret

i am definately one of those fans in the camp of jason/liz i’ve waited for over a decade to see them togather, i have watched every soap on air at one time or another not only do i think jason/liz are the best on gh but in all of daytime. there chemistry and passion is unmatched. i stopped watching after 20 yrs. the minute jake was killed and i refuse to watch again until jake is brought back and liason is reunited i never thought anything could make ne tune out of my favorite show but it happened in march 2011 and im not ok wiht killing a 4yr old in my opinion was done so that another couple could reunite. i feel the liason fas have been loyal and supportive for over a decade and i feel we get taken for granted, intead of doing s storyline with excitement at and passion gh keeps going back to the same old tires stories that dont work anymore, the difference now is people are just tuning out once and for all.gh might be suprised if they bring back jake and reunite jason/liz you will bring back the viewwers yhat thdy have lost.

edith johnston
edith johnston

hey Kerry (i hope this is you, lol). jake wasnt killed 2 reunite jasam. jasam was reunited in 2009 & jake died in 2011, but i so wish they hadnt killed him. it was really a sad storyline

Peyton
Peyton

Agreed, Jasam Strong! Jake is an afterthought, Jason and Sam continue to land in one anothers orbit, they are truly meant to be!

Laurie McRae
Laurie McRae

Jason should & WILL end up with Sam! Jason & Sam love, trust, respect, accept & understand each other unconditionally…which can never be said about any of the other women in Jason’s life. JaSam’s love for one another has an organic sort of quality to it; it’s grounded & realistic. No matter what “incarnation” of Jason he may wake up as, JaSam’s love for one another is strong enough to endure!

edith johnston
edith johnston

i feel the sam way, luv jasam

I think that Jason should be with Elizabeth. Jason and Elizabeth have never gotten their shot at a real romance and they did have a child together and I would have love to see where their romance would have gone.

Samani
Samani

I totally agree with you. Thats what makes the liason fan base so mad we Never got a real storyline you give them a kid then kill him. I would have loved to see them interact as a couple loving each other openly. I guess we will just have to wait and see. I’m liz and jason all the way

Erin
Erin

There is no doubt who he should be with….Elizabeth. They never broke up because they stopped loving each other or because one of them did something awful. They broke up to keep their family safe. And I believe the love is still and always be there. And that is my story. 🙂

edith johnston
edith johnston

i believe he will wake up & still want to be with sam even if he doesnt remember her. lets all remember he lost his memory once before & didnt know who sam was but he knew he wanted to be her. his heart knew he loved her & would do anything for her (& those were jasons own words)

Caroleena
Caroleena

I don’t doubt he loves Sam.. or Robin, or Carly. I feel their relationship is dysfunctional tho. They don’t make each other better. Moreover, from a chemistry & story POV…. they fall flat for me. No offense.

edith johnston
edith johnston

i dont feel jason & sam’s relationship is dysfunctional. they get each other, they dont try 2 change each other, make each other better, or make each other something they are not. unlike elizabeth who never accepted jason for who he is, hell she didnt even want him in his sons life because of his life but she layed up with him & got pregnant

Caroleena
Caroleena

TO me this is Jason & Sam:
JM: I hate that I have to kill people
SM: It’s ok Jason, kill anyone you need to, you do what you have to, you make killing good.
JM: But I wish I didn’t have to…
SM: You like adrenaline. So if that means you have to shoot people, so be it. I get it. I’m an adrenaline junkie too. When we have a baby I hope to breast feed adrenaline to our child.
JM: well we are unconventional. Can you pass the take out? And show me those flower arrangements again…

LOTS of people GET Jason, even Elizabeth & Robin. Enabling Jason is a different story.

As for Jake. If you want to blame anyone, know your history: Quartermaine faulty condom. And Jason said a million times he had no regrets. He loves Elizabeth and loved Jake. AFTER Elizabeth said they were wrong and should be together and raise jake, Jason proposed – she said yes. It wasn’t till Jake was kidnapped again that JASON backed out. FEAR trumps love a lot with Jason.

edith johnston
edith johnston

i know my history. i know jason proposed 2 liz but when she accepted why then did she still keep jakes paternity a secret as if jason was her dirty little secret. i know jason never regreted jake & how much jake means 2 jason. yes jason told liz he loved her but it wasnt until they had jake.

ur liason fan & im a jasam fan. i dont agree with the way u feel but i didnt reply 2 ur comment with some silly saturday night live skit about liason

Caroleena
Caroleena

it was kinda funny tho 🙂 and all I wanted to do was display what I meant by dysfunctional. And Jason & Sam are dysfunctional. They enable each other like co-dependent crime junkies. They get to behave badly and never say they are sorry because neither holds the other accountable. What used to be great about Jason the reluctant hero is he didn’t enjoy being a killer. The writing for both characters is so backwards.

Sam was good as the con who did bad, but now she’s Saint Sam giver of sound advice. (!!?!!)
Jason is wishy-washy as a happy go lucky hitman who doesn’t hold anyone accountable, not even himself.

Of course you won’t see it like I do. It’s all good. 🙂 Jason & Liz were SO annoying with the push/pull danger/danger crap!! they both get super selfless and get no where in their relationship. I have my frustrations with both pairing but it’s easier for me to prefer Jason with Li and visa versa because both characters overall get BETTER. When their relationship was on I saw more growth than ever, till they went back to jason/sam and the growth ended… in fact they’ve regressed. Bad tv… boring tv.

That is why I want Jason and Elizabeth back… if nothing else, at least as friends.

edith johnston
edith johnston

its a soap it all dysfunctional… criminals & the mob has always been involved with gh storylines.

& as 4 sam never being sorry 4 anything she is the only 1 on the show who always admits 2 her mistakes & owns up 2 them & fixes her own problems… & liz is no better than sam. liz is no where near selfless.

Caroleena
Caroleena

yes… ALL soap characters are flawed but they tout Jasam as the couple that ‘gets each other’ like it’s a good thing, when all I see is them enabling each others dysfunction. They are stagnant & boring to this viewer.

Jason and Elizabeth are just as flawed as characters but they compliment each other as a couple. Because they live in different worlds, the conflicts and challenges can be exciting & unpredictable. I was just as bored with the push-pull as any viewer, but the parts in between, over the years, have been addicting…. again, to THIS viewer.

I’m not saying that to convince you of anything, just sayin how I see it based on history. 100% disagree that Sam owns her mistakes and fixes them herself. I think when cornered she’s apologized. It took falling in a well and hypothermia for her subconscious to manifest hallucinations finally inducing some guilt for what she did to Jake & his parents. As far as I know Ethan still deserves an apology. I don’t even know how you can say her apology to her mother for sleeping with her husband while she was out getting cancer treatments was sincere!!! She didn’t hesitate to sex up Jerry next– all in the name of uncovering the drug ring (? really?). If Sam has a line she won’t cross, I haven’t seen it yet.

edith johnston
edith johnston

i disagree with u about it took her i fall into a well 2 be sorry she tried 2 apologize over & over again 2 jason but he woulnt hear it (which i dont blame him 4). she made a mistake i personally believe she lost herself, i mean she fount out she couldnt get pregnant because she took a bullet that was meant 4 a man who turned around & got another women pregnant. (yes she was totally wrong 4 standing there & letting jake get kidnaped). she made a mistake but she has tried 2 make up 4 it, hell she even saved jake. her hallucinations 2 me was just her way of letting everything go & forgiving herself.

& as 4 her sleeping with her mothers husband which is wrong but in all fairness she was mentally fucked up. i mean the man she loved left her because her mother didnt think he was safe 4 her, the same mother who gave her away, yelled at her while she was pregnant 4 stem cells which caused her 2 loose her baby, looked down on sam, & was mean 2 sam. they never had a mother/daughter connection. where as liz was as close 2 emily as any 2 people can be but she turned around & had a baby by her man (zander) . slept with jason when he & lucky were once close (thats how she met jason), then she turned around & slept with lucky’s brother. if sam doesnt have a line she wont cross liz sure in the hell dont either. like i said before liz is no better than sam

ELIZABETH OF COURSE!

Heather
Heather

Jason should be with Elizabeth! She doesn’t want to change him, she wants to allow him to grow, to mature, to want more than to be everyone’s go to guy, errand boy, and care taker. Jason deserves to have his own life and Elizabeth is the one woman who loves all the sides of Jason, as a Quartermaine, as a Morgan, and the man he wants to become with a family of his won. Jason and Elizabeth are so much better and stronger together. Right now they are flat, one-sided characters that are difficult to even watch but together they provide story for years!

Amy

I most definitely want to see Jason with Elizabeth! There is no doubt in my mind that they belong together. They balance each other. Elizabeth brings light to Jason’s dark world and Jason gives Elizabeth strength. Their dynamic is so compelling. They light up the screen and I want to see more!

Jen

I want to see Jason and Elizabeth reunited. Their chemistry is amazing, and it’s a love story that I want to see told fully.

Elizabeth is the one that should be with Jason, they have history that proves she never wanted him to change for her, she wanted him to become a better man for himself. She was the first one to point out to him that he was more than Sonny’s hitman. She is his light in a very dark world, she makes him a better man!
Jason and Elizabeth all the way!!!

Caroleena
Caroleena

I come from the old dayz of GH.. Elizabeth never wanted to change Jason… she was young and pure thinking she deserved the truth when Jason’s loyalties were blindly towards Sonny. Both have grown since then. No one, NOT EVEN JASON wishes he couldn’t alter some of his choices so he could keep his loved ones safe but that doesn’t me they want JASON changed at his core.

All Elizabeth wanted was to be with Jason and have her children raised in a happy, safe environment. Convincing these to it’s possible is the hurdle.

I’m hoping Franco or a Helena type will prove to Jason & Elizabeth they are SAFER together as a team, than apart… when it comes to light JAKE IS ALIVE!!

I would love to see Jason & Elizabeth back together. They were the only reason I watched and I have only watched their scenes together since 2008.

Jason should be with Elizabeth! Not only do Steve and Becky have the best chemistry I’ve seen of any couple, Jason makes Elizabeth feel free and she shows him things that he had never noticed until she pointed them out. Contrary to popular belief, Elizabeth never did try to change Jason – she accepted him for who he was; Jason is one of the few people in her life who has never judged her, ever. She always felt like she could come to him when she needed someone to talk to. They had – sometimes still have – an amazing friendship and they really are “the greatest love story never told.”

Peyton

Ya….Ahhh…. He didn’t try to change her but her boring ass tried to change him! Please take a seat and let the real sparks fly! Jasam is hot hot hot!

I would watch GH again if they would get Liz and Jason back together. And please bring back Jake. Liz had never wanted to change Jason. But in the show now Jason is going backwards. He has not change for the better. Most people as they grow older they change. But he hasn’t. Still the same babysitter for Sonny and Carly and family.

Anna

I am a Jason/Elizabeth fan. I think Jason and Elizabeth have great chemistry together. I have been watching GH since the late 80’s. They were the reason I got back to watching GH again and their break-up is the reason why I stopped. I will never accept Jason with Sam. Sam should have played the anti Jason/Liz. She was more exciting to watch then.

MissyLady

No pairing on GH compares to Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan. Good girl and bad boy. Nurse and Mob Enforcer. Angel and Devil. Liason sizzles, they sparkle and do “eye sex” like you can’t even imagine.

Sam of course, she’s not just passing through. JaSam have been through so much in the past 7 or 8 years, even through that year n some months they were apart Jason recently said the love was always there. 🙂 She knows him like no one else, and vice versa. They are in it for the long haul. After all the ugliness and angst, her making horrible mistakes but making up for them, him making horrible choices but also learning from them. It’s all leading up to this. A love that has survived it all! And they too shall survive this recent hurdle. Marriage and apparently still baby since Steve just brought up the ‘B’ word again in a TV Guide interview. I love how when JaSam were alone in the Promo’s a couple weeks ago the Demos went up. I hope JaSam and other couples will continue to get this focus and writing that was so lacking in the previous handful of years. Thanks for posing the question. I like that GH is giving Monica a chance to see the son she lost but can’t get back as he was, the BFF Carly getting a chance to dream of what could have been but won’t be, and Liz being allowed to see what could have been had Jason been allowed to be the active father of the Jake even though as pair she was only able to get a short secret affair that only existed because she had the kiddo. It should all play out for nice chuckles and giggles, ending with who GH knows Jason is meant to be with. The one who loves him for who he really is, not some fantasy of who he would never be. Thank again. 🙂

Jason belongs with Sam of course. Those two has been through alot together and are more real with each other. No one has to change who they are to be with one another. They just accept each other.

Just can’t wait for them to get married. Waited for years for this!

Just love them.

I have always wanted Elizabeth and Jason to have a real chance. There is nothing more captivating than the age-old “bad boy/good girl” storyline. The chemistry that Steve and Rebecca have is unmatched. They sparkle onscreen together.

Personally, I don’t really understand why Jason being with someone who is just like him (Sam) makes for good soap material? It has only made for many dull and repetitive scenes. As far as them having a family, I find that a huge joke. It goes against that drumbeat of a mantra we have all been hearing for years and years…”Danger Danger Danger”! And yet, suddenly we are to believe that it’s okay for them to have a family? It is lame writing. And unless they bring back Jake, I don’t see many fans getting overly excited about a Jason/Sam baby.

eiwcakeff
eiwcakeff

If I had to choose I’d choose Elizabeth simply because she fits him as a person. She may not like what he does but she always said she could she beyond that to the man he is or was. I don’t recall her ever trying to change him, she wanted a family with him, for him to be a father to his son and how is that different from what is playing out now him wanting to marry Sam–just like he did EW-and wanting a child with her, a family. He said he wanted a family with EW and the boys but chose to give them up because of danger. The danger is still there, he’s still a criminal and Sam is still a hanger-on–she does nothing so she may as well have kids to take care of–oh wait that’s what nanny’s are for. The only difference I see is a lugnut.

IMPO SBu should stop giving so many interviews he is becoming over exposed and starting to repeat himself. FYI SBu so far all that good stuff you keep saying is coming–well I personally have yet to see it and it is impolite to laugh at your fanbase as you strike a match to start another war but isn’t that what ABC wants Liason fans to tune back in for that steamy scene just so we can the next day see ja1.5 as the ‘it’ couple–thanks but no thanks. I’d rather see jm alone than with someone who actively tried to hurt his child but that’s just MHO.

Peyton

just tired of hearing him say that Jason belongs with Sam…Haaaa! Admit it, Leave Steve alone and quit fighting the Jasam Phenomenon, ur just going to lose.

eiwcakeff
eiwcakeff

Two feaking years ago I commented and you just now read and replied to things that are no longer viable on GH. My opinion of SBu stands he talks too much but I do like his new character Dylan on Y&R a lot. He gets to smile and laugh and I like Chelsea even though she is shining him on they could be a good couple if she were truthful with him. I think SBu can take care of himself . And doesn’t Sam have a new guy now…Michael Easton they seem to match. Like the other comment it’s just my opinion not the gospel from on high

LuvinLiason

Jason should definietly be with our girl Elizabeth. She brings out a side of Jason that NO other woman in Port Chuck can do. She makes Jason “think” about all the possibilities that life has to offer AND no she has NOT tried to change him, in fact she has told Jason time & time again that his life has always been a temptation for her, that means, that our girl likes the badboy Jason, with a side dish of humanist! Mr. Garin, It’s time for a change, it’s time for a Jason & Elizabeth reconnect which I hope happens when they find out their son Jake Is ALIVE!

Candice

Elizabeth! They compliment each other in a way that no one else can. She never wanted to change Jason…Elizabeth makes Jason want to be more than what he is…she makes him dream of things he never thought he deserved. They are made for each other.

This proud Liason “nut” (LOL!) can not wait to see this. I stopped watching when they killed Jake, and I’m hoping that Garin Wolf realizes before it’s too late that he needs to reunite Jason and Elizabeth (& bring back Jake)! Then maybe JFP wouldn’t have to work so hard to save this show because the many, many fans that Frons/Guza drove away would come back in a heartbeat. Sam may like Jason for the “serial killer” he is. Elizabeth loves Jason in spite of who he is- so much more interesting and soapy.

Stella Jane

Love to see Jason and Elizabeth together again! They are an epic soap couple, GH needs to reunite them ASAP

CARLY!!! I was hoping that Jason would wake up as Jason Quartermaine and that he and Carly would get together. I love their friendship and would miss that but I think they would be great together. Then I would like to hear that Jason is really Michael’s biological father and that AJ really wasn’t. This story line has so many opportunities for Jason to be come someone new and for us to see even more of him (he is my faorite character on GH). I love his character and would not like how it might affect his relationship with Spinelli if we ever get him back again. Or with Molly but a Jason and Carly romance would be so fun since we can’t have Carly and Jax!

I couldn’t agree more!! If you ever read fanfic there’s a whole site debuting on September 1st dedicated to Jason and Carly… Here’s the link:

He should be paired with KM since that is what he wants so go for it !! Does anyone really care so you really think Liz could accept a killer back in her life? Sam & Jason have a baby let it be born with a 357 in one hand a push up bra in the other!!! Just get off the screen with your acting or lack of and take Sonny & Carly with you we will all be happy!!!! Yuck!! So over rated! Acting classes please!!!! Cue cards ! It makes me sick ! They stare and people call that acting!

Jasam for life. Sam is a perfect match for Jason. They have been through so much together. I don’t care what he has been through with other women nothing can touch what Jasam have done together.

aria

my vote is for jason and elisabeth, their story would be more heartbreaking . with sam is to simple, its like oh honey, how was work today, oh you know killed someone, oh anything else? i mean really, she accepts him, how nice of her to accept that he kills. does anyone want someone who has no standards? i don’t think so, sam is just a brunette version of carly, everything is ok w/ them as long as it doesn’t affect them. They don’t think of others unless its blood, how convenient for them..

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

Dominic Zamprogna Speaks Out On His Decision To Leave GH, His Final Scenes With Emme Rylan & How Dante Exited The Canvas

A few weeks ago, General Hospital fans watched as one of the series beloved stars, Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) exited the show in scenes opposite his longtime on-screen love interest, Emme Rylan (Lulu).  For nine years, Zamprogna brought authenticity, emotion, and heart to the son of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) to life.  While Dante’s journey started out with a bang, literally (thanks, Sonny!), over the years it appeared he was taking a backseat in meatier storylines.  All the while, Dante and Lulu remained one of the more popular duos with the viewers.

After much reflection, Zamprogna decided it was time for him to walk away from a place that became his second home.  His desire now shifted to play different characters in different projects, but it was not without taking many things into account with his life-changing decision.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Dominic to glean more insight into: if there was anything GH could have done to make him sign on the dotted line again, what went down to make those final scenes seem so rushed, how it was to say goodbye to his co-workers in front of the camera and behind the scenes, if he would consider a return at some point, and how would he feel if GH now planned on recasting Dante, and much more.

For us; we recall meeting Dominic for the first times just six months into his time at General Hospital for our first interview together.  We were instantly struck by his sincerity, humor, and his eagerness to learn from some of the best in the business.  Now exiting as a “soap vet“, per se, it is a full-circle moment that we had the time to conclude his GH journey with this conversation.  Here’s what Dom had to say about it all.

What were the factors that contributed to your decision to exit GH?  Was there a pivotal moment where you were feeling, and recognizing, that you were underutilized that you felt you needed to make a change? 

DOMINIC:  When you named me the “Most Underutilized Actor of 2017!” (Laughs) Well, my plan was never to stay forever.  But half-way through my second contract,  Emme Rylan (Lulu) and I were approached by our producer on set, who said words to the effect of: you guys have been on the sideline, time to get you into the game.  That led to the Dante cheating storyline, which gave us story for about a year … which was great!  But as that ended, so did any subsequent storylines, it seemed.  In the year that followed, I started entertaining thoughts of leaving.  By the next year, I started talking about it with my wife, Linda, who had started to notice that maybe I wasn’t happy anymore, and I wasn’t.  That’s not a good feeling, especially if you’re bringing that energy home with you.  Then, I made the mistake of going on social media, which is a terrible place to go sometimes.  But fans were saying the same sort of things I was feeling.  Was it all due to story or lack-thereof?  No.  I was starting to crave playing other roles, and that’s hard to do when you’re under contract.

Were discussions even had with Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and the powers-that-be about your feelings of dissatisfaction over not being utilized more in storylines?

DOMINIC:  The discussions happened late.  Not until the negotiation process, actually.  I’m no squeaky wheel I guess, but I also don’t feel it’s in my job description to be one.  I did put out a few ideas here and there, but they didn’t happen.  I know other actors have tried the same and it didn’t lead to anything for them, either.  I was a creation of Bob Guza (former head writer, GH), and maybe I was spoiled by the amount of great writing I received while he was there.

There had to be some sadness in walking away from GH.

DOMINIC:  Oh yeah… it was sad.  I built that character, and now here I was walking away from it, and essentially my second family.  That’s been the hardest part.  Lifelong friendships were made, and memories.  However, it’s been over a month and a half since I’ve been at GH and I feel happy.  I’ve been up in Canada shooting Tin Star, which has been a great experience.  I’ve stayed in touch with everybody and I miss everybody, in fact, I just spoke to Mo (Maurice Benard) yesterday, and I’m in class with Emme (she won’t leave me alone).  But, I feel like I made the right choice for me at this moment.

To clarify; were you actually trying to work out a deal to stay put, but both sides just could not hammer things out to a satisfactory conclusion?

DOMINIC:  We did try to work out a deal.  After more talks and conversations, I felt maybe we were going to get things done.  I was being told things would change and maybe shift things in the direction we wanted to go.  But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be in writing.  I feel like I’d been told similar things in the past which hadn’t come to fruition.  I was also reminded that it was me who needed to sign my name on that dotted line and live with that decision, and I chose not to do so.

If someone would have said to you: “We have an “A” story for you, and you are going to be driving it,” would you have been more apt to stay?   

DOMINIC:  There was talk about us sitting down and talking about storylines, but that didn’t end up happening, not sure why.  And even if it did, I don’t know that it would’ve changed my mind about leaving, anyway.   But just to be clear: I have no anger towards anybody.  It’s all a business at the end of the day.  Both sides did what they felt was right.  For me, I just felt this chapter had come to an end.

When, and how did you tell on-screen scene partner, Emme Rylan that you were leaving?  Was she happy for you and your decision?

DOMINIC:  Emme knew really early on.  Once January rolled around I was like: “I have been thinking for the last six to nine months that I am going to go.”   I wanted her to know, because we have been a couple for five years on the show.  Emme was very happy for me.  I went, “Wait a minute!  Don’t be this happy.  I’m leaving.” (Laughing)  

What happened when you told your on-screen mom, Lisa LoCicero ?

DOMINIC:  She was sad, but she is also said, “You’re in your prime, go see what’s out there!”   I wouldn’t have done this move if I did not get support at home.  My wife is the rock and the one that makes this household go.  Some things outside the show were starting to happen; I had a nice screen-test for a pilot, and then I booked these four episodes of Tin Star.  When you have choices in life; you have power and control over your future.  I think Emme and Lisa as actors realized that.  That’s what made them happy for me … for the future.  The last nine years were exciting.  However, when you can have a little bit more say in what you are doing on a day to day basis, that is empowering.  So, in saying, “no” to something, and saying, “Thank you, but that’s not what I am looking for right now,” that can feel good.

It was a shame that through all the regimes that they rarely wrote any scenes between Dante and his father, Sonny.  What was Maurice Benard’s reaction when you told him you were leaving?

DOMINIC:  It has been pretty publicized that he and I were dissatisfied at the lack of  storyline, or scenes together.  Maurice asked the powers-that-be, “Why aren’t we working together more?”  We never had a clear answer as to why.  He didn’t know from one day to the next what was happening with my contract talks.  Mo saw me smiling one day and asked, “So does that smile mean you’re staying?”  And I said, “No, that smile is because I’m leaving.” (Laughs)  I said that more to mess with him, and make him sad.  He said, “As long as you are good financially, then I am all for anybody getting out of here and seeing what else is out there.” Really, Mo talks people into leaving so he can get more screen-time. (Laughs)

Let’s talk about the final airshow, and the story that came out of left field to facilitate your exit.  Was that written quickly to accommodate a shooting schedule or contract completion?  It felt rushed to the viewing audience.

DOMINIC:  Left field is right!  I still had a week and a half left of work when they found out I wasn’t going to re-sign, and within twelve hours I had six exit scenes written.  So, it wasn’t done to facilitate anything but a set (Lante’s house), I think.  My final tape date was May 18th, and Emme and I had scenes on the Wednesday or Thursday before that.  I guess they wanted my last scenes that aired to be with Emme, and that might have been the only scheduling day that worked for the set and the actors, and maybe that’s also why it felt so rushed.  All I could assume is that they didn’t think I was really going to leave so they didn’t plan for it, or they chose to protect themselves in this way, by not making a big deal about it.  I had another week of scenes in the PCPD with Chase (Josh Swickard) and Michael (Chad Duell) that was shot afterward.  But they had nothing to do with Dante’s “secret mission!”

I thought, “Wait!  Is that it?  Is this Dominic’s final show?  Dante doesn’t say goodbye to his mother… his father … or his son, Rocco?

DOMINIC:  Yeah, that was tough for me.  After 9 years you think you’re going to get a little bit better of a send off.   You also, hope they’re going to honor the character.  Dante wouldn’t leave to go to the 7-eleven without saying goodbye to his mother and kids.   Maurice and I talked about that.  He said, “I guess, they don’t want people to feel really sad.  You and me doing some goodbye scenes, people are going to be devastated.”   I agree with that.  However, I also think it’s a soap and that’s what fans want … good, ole drama.  I would have loved to have had scenes with Sonny, Olivia, and Dante’s kids, but when you make a decision like this, how you leave on-air is not up to you.  Both parties are going to handle it how it’s best for them.   I was very grateful they gave Emme and I something to seek our teeth into. 

They were very sad scenes.  You are one of those actors that can take the material and connect with it while delivering it in a very subtle and heartfelt way.  How was Emme after your final scenes?

DOMINIC:  She was kind of crying the whole time, going “Damn you! Damn you.”   I was having fun with it, because I love making Emme cry.  It’s not a very difficult thing to do.  (Laughs).  We were both pretty teary-eyed, actually.  Then, when we finished the scenes and I looked over and I saw how upset the crew was, that’s what really got me.  Barbara, one of the camera operators actually jokingly apologized; suggesting that if my last shot was blurry it was my fault!  As an actor, when you make the crew feel something it kind of gives you some extra good feels. That was always the best feeling, talking to Craig (our stage manager), or Donna (head of makeup department) after a scene to get the honest truth on how you did.  I’ll miss them.

Viewers, watching Dante have this flashback about the guy who was responsible for Lulu going overboard the Haunted Star a few years ago, probably needed a moment to connect the dots.  Some viewers were going, “What?  Dante is going after the guy that tried to drown Lulu from two years ago?”

DOMINIC:  When I read that in the script even I went, “What?” Who’s that?”  I had no idea, either. (Laughs)

Then there was this:  Dante was so hard on Lulu for her pursuing her dream as a journalist and how it inadvertently got Nathan killed.  Then all of a sudden in your final scenes, Dante has a line to Lulu in which he says something to the effect of: I understand now – you got to do, what you got to do.  In story, prior to these scenes it was leaning more towards Dante and Lulu were going to break-up over what had recently transpired.

DOMINIC:  Which, who knows?  If Dante had stayed in Port Charles it could have been the direction they were going in.  It certainly looked like they were building toward conflict, conflict, conflict, but with me leaving it was much sweeter to leave on the note that we left on, instead of Dante leaving, because he can’t deal with being around Lulu. This all leads me to believe that they didn’t want to do anything too permanent to give them time to make the proper decisions.

What was the last day of shooting like for you?  Was it hard to get through?

DOMINIC:  It felt like a regular day, and my final scenes were up towards the end of the tape day. They had a cake afterwards.  Frank briefly spoke and introduced Maurice; who said a bunch of sweet words.  That meant a lot to me.  I said “goodbye” to everybody and took some photos, and that was it.  I already had my room packed up.  Once you’re ready to go, you’re ready to go.  Afterwards, I went out with Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) and Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Ex-Carlos) for some beers and wings at the bar down the street.  It wasn’t until everybody came back after a two-week break that it felt real, because then I was receiving text messages from people saying, “We’re back.  Why the hell aren’t you here?”

The door has been left open for Dante to return.  Would you ever come back?

DOMINIC:  Of course, at some point.  But it might not be my choice, they might recast.  They told me they won’t, but who knows what’ll be done.  Do I think you can just recast a role?  No, I think it’s always a tough sell, but they’ve done it with bigger names/characters than mine.  I would be a little surprised, only because there hasn’t been much story for Dante in the last three years.  For me, as of now, I’ve moved on, and I’m very happy with my decision and my life.  It’s sad in other respects, don’t get me wrong.  I’ve read things that people have said on Twitter, and I want everyone to know I’ve seen it all and it means a lot to me.  People have been beautiful to me.  I’m truly overwhelmed by the love.  I thought there would be more of, “Who cares?” when fans found out I left.   I must have done something right during the years I was at GH.

Did you think when you made the decision to leave they would kill-off Dante? 

DOMINIC:  No, not at all.  I don’t think killing off Dante would be a good idea, especially after they killed Nathan, and also because of the climate we live in with police involved shootings and violence, in general.  In a perfect world as an actor, you crave the opportunity to have one last moment with the other characters that have been important to your character over the years.  That’s all I would have wanted for myself, and Dante.  I’ll take what I got though.  It was extremely meaningful because of what Emme and I had and built.  I feel we got to the heart and soul of those two characters in a pretty short amount of time in our scenes.

Speaking of Nathan, I think thus far those funeral scenes, which you were wonderful in, and the story arc revolving around his death, are GH’s best bet for an Emmy in the Drama Series category next year. 

DOMINIC:  I agree.  It was so well-done.  We’d all would like to go out like that!  Tragic, but it made for great TV and great soap.  It was phenomenally well-acted across the board.  Lots of Emmy reel stuff for Michelle Stafford (Nina) and Kirsten Storms (Maxie), and Kathleen Gati (Liesl), and hopefully for our directors and crew, also.  They did an amazing job bringing that to life.

This now leaves Josh Swickard as the lone cop now by default on GH.   he PCPD is notorious for being the worst cop shop in the history of soaps! (Laughs) They can’t ever solve a crime.

DOMINIC: (Laughs) I know!  What is Josh is going to do?   Maybe between Chase and Jordan (Vienssa Antoine) they will solve crimes.  Maybe, they’ll bring on a new cop.  Josh is a great guy and I enjoyed working with him.  At the beginning, we had that contentious relationship between the two guys.  That would’ve been fun if it lasted longer, where they had this continual real dislike for one another.  Who knows?  With Dante gone, maybe they will start solving some crimes! (Laughs) Maybe now the PCPD will be the greatest police unit in the USA.

Over your nine years at GH, would you still consider that your best storyline was coming on to the show and then having Sonny shoot Dante, only for it to turn out that he just shot his own son?

DOMINIC:  Yes, I think you have to.  That was my intro.  They had this story planned eight months before they even cast the role.  To get to that moment, was a classic soap cliffhanger.  I grew up watching soap operas with my grandparents, and if they had been alive for that scene they would have lost it, because it was something that ‘old school’ soap fans would really dig.  For me, doing that story felt so special.  ABC also pumped it with the promotion, and the promos, and the TV spots, and amped it up.  I didn’t feel it disappointed.  It was actually the audition scene that I had to perform to get the part!  Then six months later you get to say these lines that got you the part, and you hope you don’t whiff on the softball.

While putting together and producing the GH 55th anniversary tribute package for this year’s Daytime Emmys, I included that moment between Sonny and Dante.  I remember watching the complete scene before editing it and the dialog was so good.  It still holds up to this day.

DOMINIC:  My manager was at the Emmys that night, and said what a great moment that was.  I meant to thank you for that, because I really appreciated it being in there.

Are there any other scenes that come to mind that you are most proud of?

DOMINIC:  I also really loved the scenes with Max Gail (Mike). He is a special guy.  There was so much in our scenes; where Dante finds him with Avery in the stables.  Those moments are going to stick with me for a long time.

On June 28th, the airdate of your last episode, you posted a tweet to the fans that read: “The love you guys have given me over the years and continue to give is overwhelming.  It is I that must thank YOU!”  I thought that was extremely touching and very appreciated by the fans.

DOMINIC:  I was thinking, “Man, I have to thank you, because I would not legitimately be here if you hadn’t liked this guy, Dante.”  It was bringing tears to my eyes reading what people were saying, and seeing how much love I was receiving.

Tell me about your role in the British-Canadian production of Tin Star?

DOMINIC:  It’s a recurring role,  I’ve been working on it since March.  It’s something very different from what I’ve been doing the last 9 years.  Can’t give much away, but I play a hired gun type of guy.  There are some great scenes and moments, and I was lucky enough to work with Christina Hendricks, John Lynch, and the legend, Tim Roth.

Do you feel now that you have had some time away now from GH, and have been playing another role, that the thought of playing Dante for you at this point is like: “Been there. Done that?”

DOMINIC:  I would never say Dante is done forever.  Right now for me, he is.  They left it open, hopefully they left it open for me, but every actor hopes that.  We want our cake and to eat it too!  I want to leave right now, but I want you to want me to come back some day.  No one wants their role to be recast.  But it’s an important character, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.  Who knows what the future holds.  I left on good terms.  Just so everyone knows; I didn’t spring something on GH on the last day of my contract.  It’s important that I let people know that I didn’t just wake up one day and say, “See ya”.  This also wasn’t about money.  Sure, we want to be paid what we believe we’re worth.  But this in no way was about me asking for the moon, or I was going to leave.  It was a very, very difficult decision.

So, what do you think about how GH wrapped up Dante’s story for Dominic’s exit? Would you like him to return to GH sooner than later?  Do you think the role of Dante was problematic to write for?  What were your favorite scenes of Dom’s during his time at GH?
