Rumors have been flying about the departure of three OLTL vets, Easton, Alderson, and Howarth. Today, Michael Easton who played the character of John McBain on OLTL and now GH has announced that he can no longer (as of February 8th) legally be part of General Hospital. The reason is because of the relaunch of OLTL. OLTL legally owns these characters. His announcement via Facebook was to inform fans not to send things to ABC’s General Hospital studio because he will not be there long enough to receive anything that was sent. Instead he asked them to make a donation to the American Cancer Society. News regarding Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning) and Roger Howarth (Todd Manning) has yet to be confirmed.
