General Hospital News: GH’s Michael Easton’s Struggle To Hold Onto His Character

Since joining the cast of Genera Hospital in 2012 as his One Life To Live persona, John McBain. Easton has played multiple characters such as Silas Clay, Stephen, and currently, Dr. Hamilton Finn.

General Hospital news reports Michael Easton tells Soaps In Depth, “It can be frustrating” when diving into the character he was set out to play as time has moved on and his character has evolved. Easton states that when he originated the role of Dr. Hamilton Finn, his character had OCD habits such as cleaning the silverware, but, “Anna straightened him out or something,” he then proceeds to disclose, “when I do things that I got away with doing before, [the powers that be] say it’s distracting. What do you mean it’s distracting? This is the character! So Finn can’t clean the silverware or do all the stuff he did. It can be frustrating.”

Hopefully TBTP give Easton a little more creative freedom so that he feels comfortable getting back to Finn’s root characteristics although the character has evolved. Let’s see what Easton brings to the table now that the players of Port Charles are back in action!
