Steve Burton FIRED From General Hospital

Multiple sources tell the Toronto Sun that Steve Burton is no longer a part of the show. The reason? You can guess.

“I’m shocked the news about Steve isn’t out yet,” says one insider.

We’re also hearing that fans shouldn’t be surprised if more actors leave the series.

The show needs an overhaul anyway. It’s been stale for years.

Steve was a real beauty when he was young. He got rough looking as he aged. Too much sun perhaps.

Is this another anti-vax firing?

I was under the impression Steve was vaccinated.

Didn't Steve say in that video he made a few months ago when he was exposed at work that he was fully vaccinated.

Or was that another situation like Aaron Rodgers claiming to be "immunized"?

by Anonymousreply 4November 9, 2021 12:36 AM

Well, B&B just rehired well-known Trumpers Kimberlin Brown and Sean Kanan, and heavily features anti-vaxxer Jaquie Woods on a regular basis, so I fully expect it to rehire Ingo and make room for Burton, too. After all he used to be on B&B's sister show Y&R.

In the tvline article on Ingo's firing, they indicated 'several' other actors were rumored on their way out because of the covid vaccine mandate. Burton has been assumed to be one of them. ABC could be resistent in accouncing his departure until as late as possoble due to his large, vocal fanbase.

Burton always reminded me of a consipated bird. although he did have a great body at one point. A very limited actor, who was lucky to be employed consistently for nearly three decades.

We'll find out soon enough because those actors final episodes will be airing over the next few weeks.

by Anonymousreply 11November 9, 2021 1:06 AM

R9 They just recast the Taylor character with Krista Allen. They approached Hunter to return, but she declined. I'm sure Kimberlin being back was one of the reasons she didn't return.

The daytime soaps were lauded by the industry as one the first TV-film shows to get back into production post-lockdown. Yes, it was a business ($) decision, because the producers knew that if they were off the air much longer, then a lot more of the audience would continue to lose interest, quit the daily viewing habit altogether, and more than likely never come back; so basically it was a matter of survival. (Nubners are still down from before lockdown) .. These anti-vaxxers should be glad that they even have jobs. They're proving themselves to be selfish asshats and not part of the soap community that has been working their butts off to keep these daily shows going. No sympathy whatsoever. With so many unemployed actors out there, they are easily replaceable.

Wonder how much of that is due to older viewers dying from COVID.

But, also not surprising the viewers who are still alive aren't as excited by the shows anymore. Even worse, shows aren't offering the most compelling of storylines since coming back from lockdown.

You'd think they'd come back with even stronger stories since the writers had months of downtime to recharge their batteries and ponder new ideas. But it seems to have had the exact opposite effect on the Y&R and B&B writers.

Those are some strong religious beliefs to walk away from a six-figure job where you're the star.

But at the same time, mass vaccination is the only way this pandemic is ever going to end. So, bravo to Disney to sticking by its guns and not caving to Steve.

With Jason and Jax both gone, there has to be somebody new for her to turn to.

Frank did not want him back at GH to begin with - they'd moved on and it was only after the network demanded Steve be back on canvas did they make it happen. He certainly hasn't been in AS much story as his earlier heyday or even since Jason/Sam, since his return. His story with Carly obviously ramped up and got him back in the thick of things, and that's now gone.

Like Tyler Christopher, I think Steve's going to discover that a fan base and a history at a show is not enough to ensure employment any time one wants it.

R220 If people continue to refuse the vaccine, the hospitals and healthcare workers may be overwhelmed. Then even the vaccinated would be at more risk because they have heart attacks, strokes, car wrecks, cancer, etc.,

And they (and everyone else) are at risk because unvaccinated people give the virus more chances to replicate and more importantly, MUTATE, into something that's more dangerous - into a virus that the vaccines can't inhibit.

And though rare, vaccinated people can get ill and die from covid, and they can get "long covid" (or even if asymptomatic, they can transmit it to their elderly or vulnerable family and friends, including children -- and those people can get ill and/or die, even if vaccinated).
