General Hospital Spoilers: Steve Burton Shows Off His Tattoo, Receives Mixed Reviews From Fans

General Hospital, Y & R, Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem, Stone Cold and the Jackal, and Port Chuck, are just a few of the reasons why Steve Burton is such a beloved actor.

General Hospital fans were devastated when GH news broke out, confirming Steve’s exit from GH as the legendary mob enforcer, Jason Morgan. General Hospital spoilers had revealed that he, along with co-star Ingo Rademacher, who played Jasper “Jax” Jacks, were let go over a vaccine mandate implemented by ABC Network. Fast forward several months and General Hospital news and spoilers reveal Steve Burton has moved on from the 59 year old daytime drama and has joined the cast of Days spin-off, Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.

General Hospital spoilers reveal little look into his personal life; On April 12th, Steve recently shared a photo of himself, showing off his arm tattoo. The photo received comment from co-star and friend, Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos). Duell wrote, “Digging the tats Steven 👌🏻.” It looks like Steve has had this tattoo for a few months, but has recently made his ink the focal point of some of his IG posts.

More recently Steve shared a photo with the tattoo artist who worked on Steve; “legend in the tattoo biz,” Joel Bones. In the photo shared to Burton’s Instagram, Steve shows off his new arm tattoo alongside artist, Joel Bones.

GH news and spoilers report some fans have kinda freaked out in the comments, claiming Steves tattoo will prevent him from acting (particularly returning to GH).

General Hospital Blog would like to extend our encouragement to Steve. We absolutely LOVE your new ink and don’t believe for a second that a tattoo would hinder you from landing roles. Many of the actors have tattoo- one who comes to mind is Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake). Others include, Tyler Chistopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine, GH), Robert LaSardo, who not only played Manny Ruiz on GH, but has a long list of acting credits which include CSI: Miami, LaSardo also collaborated with Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper in the movie, The Mule, Days star Landon Archey (Eli Grant), Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts, Days), Kamar de Los Reyes (Antonio, OLTL), along with many more.

Although most comments were positive and encouraging, a few nasysayers had to share their not-so-positive opinions. We see no reason why Steve Burtons new ink would ever prevent him from working in the acting industry. He’s already landed a new role on the 5 episode series, Beyond Salem. Way to go, Steve! We LOVE your new tattoo! Fans can check it out below!

Confirmed! Steve Burton OUT at Y&R

SteveBurtonrecastSteve 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.

What will Steve decide next?

Would you like to see him reprise his role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital?

Kiki Jerome Recast

General Hospital News…

As fans come to terms with the fact that Kristen Alderson has decided to leave General Hospital, it was inevitable that the role of Kiki Jerome would have to be recast. Kiki is too involved in current story lines to just have the character killed off the show or move away. Also, Kristen Alderson has already taped her final episode, which would leave no time to develop a story for the character’s demise.

TPTB moved quite quickly in hiring the new actress to play Kiki Jerome. The Young and the Restless star (Abby, 2008-2010), Hayley Erin will take on the role and step into Kristen Alderson’s shoes.

General Hospital Blog sends well wishes to Kristen in her life’s new direction! Kristen as been part of the ABC Network since she was 6 years old. Her role as Starr Manning on ABC’s One Life to Live has left a lasting impression with soap fans everywhere. We also welcome Hayley with open arms to the GH family.

What are your thoughts regarding this recast?
