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.!!

Kelly Thiebaud Departing General Hospital and Heading Back to ‘Station 19’

Kelly Thiebaud is now set to reprise her role of Eva Vasquez, on ABC’s primetime drama, Station 19 and thus the Daytime Emmy winner will exit her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne on General Hospital.

According to Deadline, Thiebaud will be part of the cast for the series 6th season, which premieres on October 6th.

Previously, Kelly appeared on the show’s 3rd season when in story, as the widow of firefighter Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez), she had an affair with her husband’s colleague Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) that resulted in total chaos.

In a tease for Thiebaud’s return, ABC shared, “Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past.”

Kelly has played GH’s Britt on and off since 2012. She won her first Daytime Emmy this past June for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

Look for Kelly to exit her GH role in November, while a rep for the soap shared that the actress will be leaving by year’s end.

What do you think of Kelly going to Station 19 and departing General Hospital? How do you think GH will deal with her exit? Will tragedy befall Britt with her living with Huntington’s Disease? Will she be written-off the canvas, leaving the door open for her return?

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.
