Michael Easton Shares Message With Fans On His GH Exit: "THIS IS HOW IT ENDS … It Always Hurts To Say Goodbye."

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

By now, most General Hospital viewers have seen or know about Friday’s episode which saw Michael Easton killed-off the show when his character of Silas Clay was murdered.

Easton, who is beloved by his fan base and colleagues, took to his official facebook page to make a statement on his exit from General Hospital and share his heartfelt sentiments.

Michael related: “THIS IS HOW IT ENDS … It always hurts to say goodbye. The sting is lessened because of the time I was able to spend with all of you. Not sure when our paths will cross again but in the meantime, my family and I extend our heartfelt thanks and blessings for all the support and kindness you showed us over the past three years. You made us feel loved and we send our love back to you.”

There is one thing On-Air On-Soaps would like to add: Michael Easton always shows grace, class, and recognizes and appreciates the dedication, of you, his fans.  Maybe, Days of our Lives might think of bringing back Tanner Scofield (the role Easton played from 1990-1992) for their upcoming 50th anniversary season?

I love Michael!
He will do well..
His movie, he wrote, produced, and won an award for best movie, recently shows he has a great future ahead for him..
(not to forget his writing of is awesome novels!)

All soap actors are apt to be let go at anytime..
They know that and when it does happen it is sad..
As with the ?100’s before him 🙁

Michel rocked from vampire to doctor !!

I met him at a SOAP special back when PC was still running, he truly is a gentleman and I guess hey don’t get too far in showbiz! I’m sick about them killing him off, and he saved Ava’s life, what an ingrate, but I believe she’s a sociopath and deserves to die.

Su…I know you have taken a lot of heat on your opinions on Tony Geary’s leaving, and now his possible return statement 5 minutes after he departed into the fog. Michael’s not Tony as far as soap longevity and Emmys, but Tony could take a page from Michael and others who’ve either been let go, killed off, or left for other reasons about how to leave the stage. In this case Michael graciously knew how to exit and expressed it to the fans. Just another reason to understand the backlash Tony’s getting from fans who have invested in him over… Read more »

I have a theory on who killed Silas Clay…. Silas’ brother Stephen. The story could go that he planned to take over Silas identity and killed him and didn’t have time to remove the body. So now he needs to disappear for a bit . Let’s not forget, someone dressed like a doctor with a ring on left the morgue and we never saw the body under the sheet… And he was a bad boy you may recall! Hopefully, I’m correct and Stephen will be back. It would be a shame for GH to lose two great actors in one… Read more »

Running with Kathis’ theory–and maybe that is really Stephen who died.

It seems that General Hospital gets rid of any character that is not in a Sonny/Jason storyline. I stopped watching GH ten years ago because every story involved Sonny and Jason and it seems that GH is going in that same direction. I only started watching GH again because of the One Life to Live characters coming over. I think GH should just change their name to the Sonny and Jason Hour. Goodbye GH.

Michael Easton is a class act. A fine and handsome actor. I’d LOVE to see him paired up with Eve (Kassie DePaiva) on DAYS. I don’t remember the early 90s much, so perhaps DAYS can secure Michael Easton in a new role, and really write for him.

I did not notice any typos, Kay–I just saw your content. I do agree that he is a class act and full of integrity. Soap operas do not seem to be embracing the unique and understated talent of such stars as Michael. Allow me to mentally underline the adjective unique. Michael E manages to be quite handsome without adhering the perfect cookie cutter male soap specimen which riddles the soap terrain now days. I swear, if I see one more waxen chest….. Michael E had a very interesting way of smiling. As John McBain his smile would almost seem involuntary… Read more »

He’s a good actor, but hasn’t had any substantial or interesting storyline in the last year. That’s why it’s so puzzling that he’s frequently still rated “number one” male actor in the ABC Soaps in Depth magazine.

I agree. I loved him more as John McBain, that whole PP BS screwed him up and Roger Howarth who isn’t quite as enjoyable as Todd Manning.

Thanks Michael. I always enjoyed your work.

As we all know, with any soap opera there’s always room for a come back.

Remember, Stephen Clay, Calab Morley and Father Michael Morley from the GH

He still has a “back door” way of coming back to GH.

Thanks Michael and Good Luck…

This news has stunned me and now I am heartbroken. I went to last year’s fan club weekend and after the cast party, the actors were stationed where the fans can meet their favorite actor and take a photo. Well…Michael Easton had the longest line with eager fans who were waiting just to see him. I don’t mind saying that Jason Thompson, Kristen Storms, and several other big name actors were in the same room and there was no line to meet them…There was no comparison! Polls aside, he was and is the most popular, down to earth, talented actor… Read more »

Now that Ron Carvilati is gone, maybe the new writers will be smart enough to bring Michael back. He can be another Clay or a new detective, Dave McCain. Just such an enormous waste to lose such a talented, not to mention hot and steamy actor!

Michael Easton is my all time favorite too. The minute he is on the screen my eyes can’t get enough if only they could have had he and Ava together he had chemistry with her.

Good luck Michael this is GH’s loss.

No Jokie for me. They were the worst pairing ever. Tney had ZERO Chemistry. My Michael Easton Watching will be od JoVan with Him and Renee Goldsberry. JoBlair with him and Kassie Depaiva and Port Charles With Caleb and Olivia and Caleb and Alison. Along with Sava Silas/Ava and Sils/Sam

He was let go..
If an actor is not of the soaps core they will usually be the ones cut/let go..
I’d bet people’s favorites since the 70’s to date, that hmmmm 100+ have been let go from all the soaps, it is not unusual..
I guess all soap actors see themselves as being on borrowed time..

Quote RC; ”” and warns if viewers are watching a show just for a character or a couple, “you’re putting yourself in a difficult situation…because you’ll end up disappointed.” About writing characters off the show, he does it ‘because it’s his job, not because he wants to’. Carlivati indicates that those who are not on contract “can pop in and out when we need them. It has allowed us to broaden our canvas of characters and pull from so many different eras of the show.” RC can not and does not fired anyone, he is told to write whomever out… Read more »

Yes, but it’s also the head writer’s job to introduce, flesh out and establish a character making him/her part of the overall canvas rather than have him/her isolated on their own little island.
To paraphrase John Donne–

Michael had his stories..
I loved the vampire and also when he with Sam, and the baby story with Heather..
He had a good run..
Sometimes thing just don’t go on..
Not everyone is a star..
besides the past year Michael has been very busy writing, producing and promoting his own movie, that he for best movie award for..
not forget the novels he wrote,.,,
did you ever think perhaps Michael wanted and needed time off to do those things, and therefore there was no big stories for him..

Silas’s story was never that interesting to me, even though I love Michael Easton. I wish, instead of pairing him with Kelly Monaco, they had brought in Melissa Archer as Nina. Fans of John&Natalie would have tuned in, and they would have been a force to be reckoned with. Instead, all they did was give “Siam” fans a temporary thrill before they paired Sam with Patrick, leaving Silas (Michael) without a love interest or a story.

Maddiehayes, I totally agree. I adore Michael Easton and enjoy watching him WHEN he is written well. Jolie was his longest and most popular pairing so it makes sense to me that they’d capitalize on that. I have nothing against the Caleb/Livvie fans and am not in any way throwing shade toward those who loved his pairing with KeMo; to each their own. But as a SB/KeMo fan; I do feel all of their years of pairing was trashed to make room for John in the most senseless way. Even SB and KeMo has commented at fan events that they… Read more »

I can appreciate what RC said to a degree. Anyone who knows soaps knows that their couple’s romance will always be short lived; we’ll get a month of happiness for 2 years of dragged out sorrow and conflict. Not fair of course but that’s the nature of the business. But his words are also contradictory because most people who watch soaps are watching it because they are drawn to a love story and/or pairing. Sure there are other plots on soaps and there are always exceptions to the rule but soaps are primarily made of drama filled romances and the… Read more »

Totally agree with YOU! Roger Howarth’s Todd was the only OLTL character who was left intact by the crossover. He was still in love with Blair, still a good father to Starr, still the same Todd we knew. They had to kill off Starr’s little family to make her work with Michael, and I never bought them together because of that. As for McBain, his was the worst of all! John attracted to Sam after all the time OLTL spent trying to get him, Natalie and their son back together? It made John look like the worst kind of deadbeat… Read more »

I love your comment. RC baited the Jolie fans so much with John’s entrance. First they said John was married, then they said he wasn’t. And no way Jason would act that way toward Sam; she was VIOLATED. Why would he turn his back on her? John and Jason were written like jerks. John didn’t want to leave Natalie to visit his brother Michael for Thanksgiving yet he’d stay in Port Charles months at a time and just abandon her and his son? And that STUPID story about John’s SISTER BEING KILLED? Come on, now. I know that soaps change… Read more »

All those characters were brought back and either killed off, made to act totally out of character or they have disappeared without mention.

I always thought that once GH had to change the 3 characters brought on from OLTL the actors’ talents had been wasted. Since then, RC wrote these ridiculous stories that are again wasting the great talents of Roger Howarth, Michael Easton (so sad to see Silas’ demise), Michelle Stafford and, to a lesser degree, Maura West.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.
