Steve Burton left his 21 year run on ABC’s General Hospital in 2012. He played the iconic role of Jason Quartermaine/Morgan, and become the Daytime TV face of the Port Charles mob, alongside c0-star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos).
Burton’s departure from his role as Jason on GH became one of the biggest upsets in Daytime. Burton’s decision came as a result of what was said to be what was best for his family. He joined the cast of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, as Dylan McAvoy.
The role of Jason Morgan was recast by Y&R vet, Billy Miller. It was hard for fans to accept at the beginning, however, JaSam fans have accepted and embraced the new role.
Steve Burton has confirmed via Twitter, his departure from Y&R this coming December, at his contract’s end.
