Cou­ples don’t come much odder — or more per­fect for one an­other! — than GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Anna and Finn. “It’s cer­tainly an eclec­tic pair­ing,” chuck­les the doc’s por­trayer, Michael Eas­ton. “You al­ways hope that op­po­sites at­tract, and they are re­ally dif­fer­ent in a lot of ways.”

But in truth, the ac­tor — like Anna’s pal, Feli­cia — rec­og­nizes their com­mon­al­ity as well. “What Feli­cia said a while back re­ally stuck with me,” Eas­ton sets up. “It was some­thing to the ef­fect of, ‘You both save lives and care about hu­man­ity but try to shut ev­ery­body out. If you could find each other, you could be good for each other.’

“I think that sums them up re­ally well,” he con­tin­ues. “Amid all the dif­fer­ences, Finn be­came an ad­dict to dis­tance him­self from peo­ple and from his lone­li­ness, self-loathing, pain and sad­ness. I think Anna does a sim­i­lar thing with her work: Her ad­dic­tion is her job. They both have th­ese strange, ad­dic­tive per­son­al­i­ties. So it’s al­ways go­ing to be

volatile… but she’s very charm­ing, ob­vi­ously!”

At the root of their ro­mance, of course, is their chem­istry. “I must be the luck­i­est guy in day­time, with the ac­tresses I’ve been able to work with,” Eas­ton raves. “Ev­ery time I step on stage, [Fi­nola Hughes] makes me bet­ter!”

And with all that Anna’s gone through with Peter, the ac­tress has been thrilled to have Eas­ton by her side as well. “I have a great scene part­ner in Michael,” she grins. “I couldn’t ask for a bet­ter per­son to bounce this off.”

With Anna find­ing her foot­ing with Peter, per­haps she’ll soon get to see Finn stare down his own demons — like the fa­ther and step­mother who make him see red… or the baby that he doesn’t even know ex­ists!

Birds of a feather tak­ing flight?
