The decision about Hamilton Finn leaving the show has been made for some time now, but that hasn’t stopped fans from expressing their grievances with writers online. Fans slammed General Hospital for letting Michael Easton go in the comments on YouTube.

“I hope they don’t recast Finn. Michael Easton played that role very well,” one fan commented. “Michael Easton…You will be missed! I hope this exit was your decision and not that of the GH team,” another viewer wrote. “I truly hope that they bring Michael Easton back at the end of his rehab,” a third person wrote.

Michael Easton Says Goodbye To General Hospital & Fans

Michael Easton shared the news of his departure with fans on Instagram on June 26.

“I’ve always been partial to the Irish good-bye,” he said in a video. “That’s where you leave the party without actually telling anyone you’re gone. But I thought you all deserved better. So I just want to let you know that I just filmed my final scenes here at General Hospital.

He continued, “I’ve loved every minute that I’ve been here. I want to thank the entire cast and crew for allowing me to share their stage this past 10 years. Most importantly, I want to thank all of you for the kindness and love you’ve shown me and my family. I won’t ever forget you.”

Then, at the end of the clip, he walks away from the studio where General Hospital is filmed for the last time. Unfortunately, he did not provide a reason for why he is leaving the soap opera at this time.

He has played Dr. Hamilton Finn on GH since 2016. Prior to appearing on General Hospital, he starred in other daytime soaps, including Days Of Our Lives and One Life To Live.

  1. Did Michael Easton choose to leave GH or was he let go? It looks like the door is open for him to return after time in rehab which is better for the child Vilolet for her dad to get better & reunite with her maybe her mother could return as well & they could be a family again.

  2. I hate that Michael Easton is leaving GH like this! Poor Violet, first her Mom just disappears then her Grandpa dies and now her Dad dies. I hate this for Violet! This is so not fair to her!
