As the unforgettable John McBain from ABC’s One Life to Live, General Hospital fans embraced his Llanview character when he arrived in Port Charles. After some legal issues between ABC and Prospect Park, GH was forced to change Easton’s character’s name from John McBain. Michael Easton then became Dr. Silas Clay, and with some major re-writing, the GH team ended up making it work somehow.
Fans were shocked when Michael Easton was suddenly killed off of General Hospital as Dr. Silas Clay. Many petitioned to get him brought back, and now there are rumors swirling that Michael Easton is indeed coming back to General Hospital. However, Easton has confirmed that those rumors are completely false. As disappointing as it will be to fans, we found that it is important for GH Blog to clear up the rumors and let fans know the truth. Michael Easton is not returning to General Hospital, and he even says he hasn’t been within 10 feet of the building since the day he last taped.
Check out his Facebook message to fans. We would like to thank Michael Easton for clearing up the rumors.
