There is a brand new video interview with  Steve Burton from Access Hollywood that has  been posted in three parts featuring the Daytime Emmy winner at his new digs at The Young and the Restless! 

Laura Saltzman of AccessHollywood.com chatted with Steve about his decision to join Y&R, when he signed his contract, his flexible work schedule that enables him to go back to his home and family in Nashville, his character of Dylan McAvoy, and much more!  Saltzman also revealed she recently talked to Kelly Monaco (Sam, GH) who told her that she knew in the back of her mind that Burton would be back working again soon (after he decided to take a break from daytime) due to knowing his personality type!

During the segment, Burton admitted he was surprised by the reaction that some of the fans had on his taking on a new role on Y&R.   Steve revealed that the fans could not get the whole story till he good talk about it.  The actor stated, “The story broke on December 26th and we did not make a deal till January 3rd.  So there was that time where I am very active in social media, that I couldn’t talk.   My hands were tied.   But I think they understood that things just didn’t work out with General Hospital’s schedule with what CBS could do, and so there are no hard feelings.”

Watch all three segments with Burton below, including one with new co-star Joshua Morrow (Nick) in which the duo admits that the cuts and bruises on Steve’s face were part of the plot (in case you have not seen the episodes).  What do you think of Steve’s Y&R debut?  His comments in the interview? Let us know!

I wish Steve well in his new role on Y&R. I can’t fault anyone for doing what they feel is right for them and their family. I believe we will see him again in Port Charles, when the time is right, for both him and GH.

I agree, growing weary of topic myself. I do get that both CBS and Sony must have a lot invested in him, so they want to get all the media press so they can to hype his new role, but after while it is a turn off. The spin machine should stop and now let Steve and his role speak for themselves as to whether this character is all and be all the media hounds are trying to make him into.

why does everything that comes out of his mouth now seems like a lie? oh well, GH doesn’t need him, its exciting every single day, and everone is on fire. Plus Laura is coming back, so is Frisco and Scotty, A J is leading the way with the revival of the Quatermaines, so hasta la vista Jason/Steven, enjoy your boring run on Y&R.

Steve is living his life good for him, even though some people believe they should have been included in how he decided to live it LOL ……… He seems content and happy and 21 yrs is too long on the same soap, not growing not going anywhere living in the same rut.for 21 years yuck, he is too young for that..
glad he grabbed the new challenges!!
looking forward to the new Steve as Dylan .. 🙂

Steves moved on, GH has moved on(and doing very well without the Jason character who can always return to GH in the future like Genie and Tristian have done and they were on YAR too,) so viewers should move on too. Steves a grown man and its his decision to do whatever he thinks is right for his family and career whether you believe his decision or not. There were fans who stopped watching GH for whatever reason they had but its their choice to do so just like the actors choice is to leave.

He’s only been on Y&R for less than a week, and already Dylan is a heap tons better than Jason ever was or ever could have been. He’s a brilliant addition to the cast, and hope he sticks around for a long while!

A … not , the s/l, is a mimic of GH years before , the actress that plays Avery, boring , just like Jason and Elizabeth and as far as the acting, google all the roles he supposedly has played, all similar. That being said, is not acting!!!

Steve Burton should stay behind the scenes of the acting world, or voiceover characters until he learns the craft of a true actor.!!

I wish Steve Burton would come back to GH… No one else can play Jason as well as he could. I was a little aggravated when I heard that he went to another soap.. My advise to the network of GH is to get him back… no matter what it takes.. PLEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Miss Jason!!!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
