18 January 31st, 2013 Steve Burton Chats With Access Hollywood On Leaving GH & New Beginnings on Y&R! – Watch the Segments!


There is a brand new video interview with  Steve Burton from Access Hollywood that has  been posted in three parts featuring the Daytime Emmy winner at his new digs at The Young and the Restless! 

Laura Saltzman of chatted with Steve about his decision to join Y&R, when he signed his contract, his flexible work schedule that enables him to go back to his home and family in Nashville, his character of Dylan McAvoy, and much more!  Saltzman also revealed she recently talked to Kelly Monaco (Sam, GH) who told her that she knew in the back of her mind that Burton would be back working again soon (after he decided to take a break from daytime) due to knowing his personality type!

During the segment, Burton admitted he was surprised by the reaction that some of the fans had on his taking on a new role on Y&R.   Steve revealed that the fans could not get the whole story till he good talk about it.  The actor stated, “The story broke on December 26th and we did not make a deal till January 3rd.  So there was that time where I am very active in social media, that I couldn’t talk.   My hands were tied.   But I think they understood that things just didn’t work out with General Hospital’s schedule with what CBS could do, and so there are no hard feelings.”

Watch all three segments with Burton below, including one with new co-star Joshua Morrow (Nick) in which the duo admits that the cuts and bruises on Steve’s face were part of the plot (in case you have not seen the episodes).  What do you think of Steve’s Y&R debut?  His comments in the interview? Let us know!

    I wish Steve well in his new role on Y&R. I can’t fault anyone for doing what they feel is right for them and their family. I believe we will see him again in Port Charles, when the time is right, for both him and GH.


  2. Michael says:

    Thank you Michael for these interviews. Fabulous stuff!


  3. heidi says:

    Thanks for the videos Michael! Love Joshua and Steve together… loks like they are having fun! Will continue to watch my fave GH and Y&R.


  4. Saundra says:

    Honestly, I just don’t care anymore.


    Mary SF replied

    I agree, growing weary of topic myself. I do get that both CBS and Sony must have a lot invested in him, so they want to get all the media press so they can to hype his new role, but after while it is a turn off. The spin machine should stop and now let Steve and his role speak for themselves as to whether this character is all and be all the media hounds are trying to make him into.


  5. Brenda says:

    Loving Dylan on Y&R. Great to see Steve smiling again.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to decieve. Sir Walter Scot!


  7. Sharon says:

    None of the videos work.


  8. aria says:

    why does everything that comes out of his mouth now seems like a lie? oh well, GH doesn’t need him, its exciting every single day, and everone is on fire. Plus Laura is coming back, so is Frisco and Scotty, A J is leading the way with the revival of the Quatermaines, so hasta la vista Jason/Steven, enjoy your boring run on Y&R.


  9. su0000 says:

    Steve is living his life good for him, even though some people believe they should have been included in how he decided to live it LOL ……… He seems content and happy and 21 yrs is too long on the same soap, not growing not going anywhere living in the same rut.for 21 years yuck, he is too young for that..
    glad he grabbed the new challenges!!
    looking forward to the new Steve as Dylan .. :)


  10. jim says:

    Steves moved on, GH has moved on(and doing very well without the Jason character who can always return to GH in the future like Genie and Tristian have done and they were on YAR too,) so viewers should move on too. Steves a grown man and its his decision to do whatever he thinks is right for his family and career whether you believe his decision or not. There were fans who stopped watching GH for whatever reason they had but its their choice to do so just like the actors choice is to leave.


  11. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    He’s only been on Y&R for less than a week, and already Dylan is a heap tons better than Jason ever was or ever could have been. He’s a brilliant addition to the cast, and hope he sticks around for a long while!


    jos replied

    A … not , the s/l, is a mimic of GH years before , the actress that plays Avery, boring , just like Jason and Elizabeth and as far as the acting, google all the roles he supposedly has played, all similar. That being said, is not acting!!!

    Steve Burton should stay behind the scenes of the acting world, or voiceover characters until he learns the craft of a true actor.!!


  12. heather says:

    Glad steve is happy and back on daytime.but miss him like crazy as jason on gh and i hope in the future he returns.


  13. Michael says:

    It’s really nobody’s business how he decides to live his life and raise his family so people should stop hating.


  14. Sandy Lee says:



  15. Loretta says:

    I wish Steve Burton would come back to GH… No one else can play Jason as well as he could. I was a little aggravated when I heard that he went to another soap.. My advise to the network of GH is to get him back… no matter what it takes.. PLEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
    Miss Jason!!!


  16. JANELLE says:

    good Luck to Steve especially with jill at the Helm! Your going to need it buddy!!
