Hospi­tal saga hit­man takes his fi­nal bow

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

ac­tor Steve Bur­ton has quit lon­grun­ning US soap opera Gen­eral Hospi­tal af­ter 21 years. The ac­tor, who has played hit­man Ja­son Mor­gan on the pro­gram since 1991, is set to take his fi­nal bow this year to spend more time with his fam­ily and pur­sue other ca­reer op­tions. ‘‘I’ve been through 21 years of ups and downs with GH – regime changes, cast and crew changes, bud­get cuts, shake-ups of one kind or an­other, and it’s been noth­ing but a huge pos­i­tive in my life and for my fam­ily,’’ he tells TV Guide Mag­a­zine. Bur­ton, 42, looks for­ward to what­ever lies ahead: ‘‘I’m jump­ing off a cliff in a to­tal leap of faith.’’
