Ex-General Hospital’s Steve Burton To The Young And The Restless.
Goodbye Port Charles, hello Genoa City.
Updated on January 7:
It’s official, Steve Burton announced on “The Talk” that he will in fact be joining “Y&R” as Avery’s (Jessica Collins) supposedly dead ex Dylan McAvoy, the one she had an affair with while she was married! Tune in Tuesday January 8 when Burton’s character’s hand is seen holding a plane ticket to Genoa City. However, we won’t see the character until January 29.
In regards to why Burton chose to leave “GH” and take on a “Y&R” role, Burton wanted to get to Nashville and get out of LA and told his manager if he could come back and forth he’d do that in a second – something he couldn’t do while with “GH.” Watch his appearance below:
Steve Burton will be appearing on CBS’ “The Talk” today to make a very important announcement. Could it be he’ll confirm a new “Y&R” role? Tune in to “The Talk” on CBS at 2:00 PM to find out.
The popular Daytime talk show tweeted:
