In a new video in the “Ask the Stars of ABC Daytime” series at ABC.com, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton answer fans burning questions on their arrival in Port Charles as Starr Manning and John McBain.

Courtesy/ABC

Having been mainstays at One Life to Live for many years, the duo openly chat about their new on-screen connections to Port Charles, and the future status of the love lives of both Starr and John. For Starr, in particular, with Michael Corinthos, and for John, although he has Natalie and son, Liam back in Llanview, how will the show address or play into the past Easton had with Kelly Monaco (Sam) on the now defunct Port Charles spin-off?

Find out the answers to these and other questions, after watching the video after the jump! Then, let us know what you think of John’s entrance onto the Port Charles canvas? And, how you are liking Starr’s new story thus far?

Totally Agree barbara t !!!! I adore Michael Easton/John McBain, and I thought his entrance was very John McBain, which I enjoy. While Starr’s storyline is sad (of course), it is quite touching, and you already see two kindred spirits (Starr and Michael) forming a bond. I look forward to seeing that storyline explored, as well as all of the stories unfolding on GH. While this is not part of the story above, wait until Jason finds out about Robin, those will be scene-stealers for sure, and Patrick was heartwrenching today. I see great things for GH ahead!!!!!

I know ,did he make an entrance or what?I love this guy and looking forward to his new adventures in port charles ,this fan will never miss a heartbeat.jason is going to find out about robin and be hurt and pissed off that he was not told the truth,and when he finds out she went back into that lab to get that vial with the cure to save him and she was killed he will live with the guilt from that,good story telling ,Im loving general hospital now.give me a whole lot of john mcbain.

I like Michael Easton alt also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He one of my favorite’s from OLTL…… Still have an old soap digest book from 2006 with his picture on the cover.. The story on the cover at that time was that he was leaving OLTL & he wanted to try new things.. So glad it didn’t turn out that way…I was broken-hearted when I read that article in 2006….He was suppose to be dead.. Burned to death… But the burn victim in the hosp. was John McBain, but no one knew that. Because his face was all bandaged up.. I had a gut… Read more »

That thought it was Hugh in the hosp. bed with his face all bandaged up….But it was really John…………… Read all my comments on 3/15 at 6:40am.. And let me know what you think & if you remember all this….Anyone can reply… Want to get another opinion on this>>>>>>>>>>>

thats when michael easton was in the middle of a contract thing and the writers didnt know if he was going to continue with one life to live.I remember it well, the fans wanted him to stay and thank heavens he did.so thats why the bandages stayed on .another actor or person was laying in that bed ,that went On for weeks ,then when the contract problem was solved john was finally the patient behind the bandages and natalie figured out it was john.

They made those burned areas look so real. Think ME said it took hours to apply all of that burned skinned look.

I also love when they show him at the firing range. Looks like he really knows how to shoot a gun. Sure looks damn good shooting it. Looks precise and controlled.

OLTL has been gone for 2 months now. It’s nice a few characters have shown up in Port Charles, but I still miss everyone else in Llanview. Life isn’t the same without them. Why couldn’t Roxy have a beauty salon in Port Charles? I could go on about each and every character, but it’s too painful.

I know ,I feel the same way,I miss one life to live and will miss it for a very long time ,when its 2 oclock Im lost ,I think roxy could run the spencers diner have you noticed no one is there to play host?she would fit in perfectly,every boby goes there for a cup of coffee,I can see her now taking the pencil out from behind her ear asking what they want to eat and writing it down and having several remarks about nothing or everything, roxy is classic ,I miss her.she can run her beauty parlor on the… Read more »

Painful it is. I miss this show every single day. Something huge was just snatched away from us. It just stopped. I have the cast poster I ordered from ABC (hated to give them a dime but had to have it) It is gorgeous, I cried when I got it. I have it framed on my bedroom wall & it breaks my heart every day, like looking at your whole family & they are dead. Sorry to be such a downer but I am having a rough day. And without our soaps to get us through it makes things even… Read more »

But what are you gong to do THE BAST–DS tokk it away from millions of OLTL fans..At least I can see some of the actors from OLTL on GH.. Something is better than nothing!!!!!!!

I thought about buying the cast poster, but I couldn’t stand paying ABC, and I was bothered by the absence of Robin Strasser and Trevor St John in the photo. I also knew I would find it a painful reminder of OLTL’s absence, but I can understand why you did order it. I miss the presence of the characters/actors; I miss their warm, beautiful smiling faces; I miss our Llanview family, and I always will. OLTL made the world a better place to me.

YES, OLTL made the world a better place. I am not the same without this show. And, crazy as this sounds once when I couldn’t sleep I started counting (instead of sheep) the people who should have been included in the photo & came up with 16 additional actors who I wish were on it. It would have to have been huge-it is not that big but it is gorgeous. EVERYONE looks heartbreakingly handsome/beautiful. I would have moved 3 or 4 people to make it just perfect but I love it although it is an everyday reminder of a big… Read more »

I love seeing these two on GH, however, I do not want to see a ‘takeover’ of OLTL cast to GH. GH is GH and always should be. I love how they have integrated the OLTL cast and can’t wait for more. I do like the chemistry of Michael/Starr and hope for both to find each other in more than in friendship. John and Sam?! Might be fun!

I also enjoy Michael Easton to have a smart cop in PC might be fun! Now can someone answer me this,it is about Sam did she not get a huge bump in a short time? Jason had brain surgery and not even a band aid? Too funny!

I miss my Roxy, Nat and Liam w/John. Give me’em and i’ll be a happy camper. I wanna hear Roxyisms and see John’s eyes roll. Also want to see “daddy John” and the love/passion in “Jolie’s” relationship and collaboration as detective and forensics tech.

Emily i do not beleive you will be seeing either one of them both actresses live in New York and the new guys have to be careful cause my understanding is they are on a tight budget.FY! my understanding is only Kristina Wagner and Robin Mattson of the oldies are coming back and KW is short term.

I read in ABC Soaps that Melissa Archer (Nat) was “open to it” a possible stint on GH and when they hired RH (not a orig contracted crossover) like KA and ME, I was real hopeful. I go back and forth wondering if they’ll add on any more OLTL ppl, but I can hope/dream…..

Iv’e been a loyal ABC soap fan (all of them) since 1970 (my mother got me started). I am so disgusted with ABC-and my only reason to tune in to it is to watch GH. I am a loving fan with the right to complain once in a while and the following comments are JMO- I am going to vent,but will offer some praises at the end. Though I will continue to support GH, I must confess I do not like what my show has evolved into, and hope new regime = dream team. and turns GH it into a… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
