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!!!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
