Shar­ing The Credit

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Up-Close & Personal -

To re­al­is­ti­cally por­tray Finn’s ad­dic­tion and detox, GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Michael Eas­ton tapped into his per­sonal vault of ex­pe­ri­ences. “I had a good friend who did that lowrent re­hab, where you go through with­drawal with them,” he con­fesses. “It had been a long time — 25 years! — but it came back clearly in that mo­ment. So it was dif­fi­cult. I’m glad it’s over.” That said, the ac­tor en­joyed dig­ging into the story. “It was a great chal­lenge, good fun, and you are only as good as your dance part­ner. And I was very for­tu­nate to share a lot of those scenes with Re­becca Budig (ex-Hay­den),” raves the soap-hop­per, who’s now clash­ing with Fi­nola Hughes (Anna) and was pre­vi­ously paired with the likes of Michelle Stafford (Nina), Maura West (Ava) and Kelly Monaco (Sam) — not to men­tion his ONE LIFE TO LIVE lead­ing ladies Melissa Archer (Natalie), Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Renée Elise Golds­berry (Evan­ge­line), and DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Shan­non Sturges (ex-Molly)! “I’m prob­a­bly the luck­i­est per­son in day­time,” he mar­vels. “I mean, the only through-line is that these amaz­ing ac­tresses are all bet­ter than me! That’s the one thing I have go­ing for me.”

Eas­ton’s lead­ing ladies make him look good.
