Shocking plot twists that will shake up your shows!
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!
