Burton joined The Young and the Restless family back in January 2013 after two decades as Jason Morgan on General Hospital.

who cares?!! we have Billy Miller on GH 😀 He’s cuter and a better actor!!
neener neener neener …

I have to agree Who cares. Their always looking to save money by cutting salary’s Why not get rid of Avery (the cookie maker), Summer (the pouter) and Dylan who does nothing but pour coffee.

No he is not need Steve back at gh to play Jason things have not been the same some actors not just not beeeee replaced on a soap and Jason is one of tbem

Not a fan. Don’t care for Dylan either. How can a character with rage issues be so boring?

MBmomof3…OH, I AGREE!!!!! To me, Dylan is B-O-R-I-N-G PERIOD!!!!!

Jaybird, can you just once pick a lane and tell us how you really feel?

DULLAN

I love you and your comments, jaybird. And, I love how you emphasize every word.
The blue jay is beautiful, just like you.
You are right, and, I cannot say it enough either. Dylan is boring….I get more action from my doorknob….I can open the door with it….later.

CeeCee,

W-o-w!!!!! Girlfriend, I am so TOTALLY flattered!!!!! Thank You. And I love you, too. Girl…you are such a COOL CHICK!!!!! I hope that your husband knows that he is one LUCKY DUDE!!!!! BTW, your ‘doorknob’ comment made me LOL!!!!! Thanks.

Later.

Now could we please make him more interesting a love interest that he has chemistry with! Avery acts too much like his mom .

I was going to say the same thing. I used to really like him with Avery.
And I love Steve in general, and like Dylan. But he needs better
storylines, and to be paired with a woman who doesn’t act like his
mom.

I hope he hooks up with Sharon.

You know, Timmm. Now that I think about it, I can see Dylan and Sharon together. She will definitely give him a run for his money . He needs someone with a complex personality to make HIM interesting ….great idea, Timmm. Then again, you and jimh always come up with goodies.

Steve seems like a great guy. Good news BUT I hope they write him better. He is a huge talent with crappy story lines! I never FF him on GH. Here at Y&R I cannot say the same.

I agree, Timm. His coupling with Betty Crocker, attorney at law, didn’t help and somehow saddling him with the earnest over grown boy scout (Paul) and the somnolent zombie (Nickie) as his parents sure have not helped matters.

Steve Burton is really cool guy..
buty-
he hasn’t had a story.. Y&R uses him as filler, and thats a shame..
All Dylan does is pour coffee and talk with Avery lol ..
I bet he wishes he was still with GH, he would have some really good stuff..
I wish Steve Burton the best and hope Pratt will give him a story, a story that highlights Steve Burton /Dylan..
))Dylan has been totally boring this past year.. yawn..

He would love to be back working for Sonny.

I love Steve Burton so much, he is a terrific actor. I am so happy steve signed a new contract.

Glad to hear it ! Glad SB is staying because Dylan has become part of the Newman family and there is a lot of potential story for him. I like Dylan’s relationship with Nick and look forward to how they could counter balance Adam upon his return.

Good luck, Steve 🙂

That had to be a big part of the talks before his contract was renewed…ONE YEAR??..Something is rotten is GC(DENMARK). Oh what a mess that is going to be wrought when he is let go and realizes he never should have left GH…same for Michelle Stafford when Nina Clay runs her course. Why you need to make characters so Gosh awful dull or Over the top with no redeeming qualities simply because your pen and mind won’t switch off full speed ahead is beyond me!!!

I never saw Michele stafford on y&r so I can’t compare her work there to her work over at GH but I’m enjoying her work over at GH immensely even the over the top “acting” as some call it, too me she’s Devine. As for Steve burton, from what I’m gAthering from y&r fans, he isn’t cutting it with the majority there, and we now have billy miller whose interpretation of Jason is completely opposite Steve burton Jason , he’s not even trying to immatate him, only time will tell if he’ll succeed but so far I haven’t heard any backlash, considering how hugely popular burton was in the role I think he (burton) burned a lot of fans when he chose to fib about joining y&r .

I’m glad that Steve has his schedule set to where he can fly to work during the week & fly back home to Nashville when it’s over. Must be working find for him & his family. It’s good for Y&R he is staying since his characters is connected to so many on the show. I actually like good guy characters on soaps. Burton’s Dylan is a bit too “put-upon” for my tastes. He’s always in a crisis, which is how JFP wrote him on GH, but of course every soap has those characters! It got boring for this GH fan. But to each their own.
I hope this new signing will quiet some of the remaining disappointed GH fans still wishing Burton back instead of Miller. For now though, it seems like a win/win for most.

They need to get Dylan out of the coffee shop & give him a more exciting career like working alongside his father Paul at the GCPD. If you have someone of Steve Burton’s calibre signed to a show then you might as well use him to the best of his ability.

No, being a cop on any show is dreadful. You are never allowed to get your guy!

That’s a great example of dry humor, Timmm…LOL.

I don’t know what the problem is between the Avery and Dylan scenes but there is no chemistry there. The stare at each other with dead eyes and talk. I do FF through their scenes. I think Steve was better on GH. I keep waiting for Avery to develop a personality. I Like all the other actors on Y&R. IMO.

Your right. I like both actors but it seems like they just dont have any chemistry.

🙁 for Y&R fans. Guess that means Avery is staying too. 🙁

I would have liked to see her and Michael hook up but it looks like Mr. Baldwin is leaving.

Does anybody know if CLB is leaving?

Sue, I hear he is headed to GH. Him and Michelle Stafford are good friends and she has been on record about how much fun it has been working on GH so I’m sure she gave him the low down. Christopher is an artist and acting is his craft and he may want to expand on his daytime experience and try something new. It is rumored that him and Michelle’s character will be connected so it makes even more sense. The other thing is it seems like more and more actors are leaving Y&R and you cannot help but look at their leadership as maybe being the reason, as well?

Another year he’s wasting on this dull as ditchwater character, sigh….

Him and Stitch should re-enlist!

See what I mean? Timmm, you crack me up. LOL.

I have always thought Steve Burton was a really talented actor. He can say so much with his eyes without uttering a word. He had some amazing, powerful and poignant scenes on GH.
Yes, despite being allowed to wear color, Dylan is duller than my dishwasher.
I think he’s even more boring with Betty Crocker.
Please give this man a storyline and a romantic partner which is worthy of his talent and charisma.

Steve Burton starred in a movie called ”The Castle” he was awesome and powerful!!
Steve in that movie and Steve in the soap are a 180 ..

Yes, he was really good in The Castle

Wonder how much soap actors get paid, compared to nighttime drama and sitcom actors?

They do well enough as long as they are long term fan favorites who the show wouldn’t dream of letting go of…they make NO WHERE near a primetime salary…that only distinction was given to Susan Lucci who at one point in her AMC career managed to snag a one million dollar a year contract…unheard of at that time in the daytime industry and NEVER to be duplicated. I’m sure and willing to bet that our U.S. highest paid soap actor is Eric Braeden(aka) Victor Newman of The Young and the Restless. Soap salaries depend on long term employment..not overnight primetime hits.

unknowns= around $700/per episode and $1500 per episode after a year.
5-10 years = $1500 to $3000 per episode.
more than 10 years= $2000 to $5000+ per episode.
exceptions /
Tony Geary (Luke, GH) range of 1- 3 million per year, which also includes special privileges including limited work hours and extended vacations.
also- Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak..

I wish could have made a return to GH, and he be in Sam’s dream’

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Kimberlin Brown to Chat Live on the Michael Fairman Channel

For more than 30 years, Kimberlin Brown has portrayed soap opera super villain Sheila Carter. First, on The Young and the Restless, and then taking the character and crossing over to The Bold and the Beautiful.

Earlier this year in February, Sheila was supposedly ‘killed-off’ of B&B, only for it to be revealed in late April that it was not Sheila who was killed but her lookalike “Sugar.” Thus, Brown returned to B&B in all-new episodes and the character is back among the Forresters, the Logans and all of her enemies.

In story, Sheila just tied the knot with the love of her life, Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) in a small ceremony attended by only Deacon’s daughter, Hope (Annika Noelle) and seemingly by happenstance, her bio-son, Finn (Tanner Novlan), causing a ripple effect in his marriage to Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

AS B&B viewers know, it was Deacon who figured out that Sheila must be alive (10 toes vs. 9 toes) and went on a search for her. Together with Finn, they found her in an abandoned warehouse where Sugar had kidnapped her and then, brought her back to safety. But, will they ultimately regret saving her life?

So, what are Sheila’s plans now? How does Kimberlin feel about playing the evil Sheila who seemingly has nine lives? Find out when Brown visits the Michael Fairman Channel for a live one-on-one conversation this Friday, May 31st beginning at 7pm ET/4pm PT.

Previously, Brown told Deadline when she was informed that Sheila would be killed off, “Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) called me upstairs to talk to me about what he had in mind for Sheila. It was a hard pill for me to swallow. It had been years of playing Sheila, and I consider her my baby, so to speak. And that was definitely not news I was anticipating or hoping to receive.” However, all’s well that ends well, as Brown shared she negotiated a new contract when viewers first saw her back on-air on the April 29th episode.

So, have a question you would like posed to Kimberlin during the live chat on Friday? Let us know in the comment section below, and what you think Sheila’s next plot will be now that she is hitched to Deacon?

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

What do you think about Anita’s account of Johnny dying in her arms after shielding her from the thieves who were trying to steal his catalytic converter in his car? Her remembrances of the man she became friends and co-workers with? Comment below.
