Hamilton Finn Leaves Port Charles

Hamilton Finn left town to enter a rehabilitation clinic after relapsing. Fans aren’t happy about the unceremonious exit of the long-time star. They find it particularly insulting that the character would leave behind his young daughter, Violent, played by Jophielle Love.

One GH fan took to Reddit to wonder how the soap plans to explain Finn’s absence in three months since Michael Easton definitely isn’t returning to the show anytime soon.

Michael Easton’s exit reminds fans of Roger Howarth’s surprise firing a few months ago. GH fans do have something to look forward to when Jonathan Jackson returns as Lucky Spencer later this summer.

Of course, he will likely miss all of his co-stars, but one has a special place in his heart. The young actress who plays his daughter on the ABC soap.

Michael Easton shared some of his final scenes with Jophielle Love when Finn said goodbye to Violet. The soap vet posted photos and video clips on social media of the close relationship he developed with his on-screen daughter.

“This is the hardest goodbye of all for me. The first picture was taken right after Violet and Finn’s last goodbye,” the actor wrote alongside a photo embracing the young girl. After the Violet/Finn goodbye scene wrapped, he revealed they immediately found each other and “hung on like we didn’t want it to end.”

  1. The higher ups at GH have no idea what watchers want. They get rid of actors that everyone loves like Michael Easton, Roger Howarth, Michael E. Knight to name a few and bring back ones that nobody cares about like Jonathan Jackson and the guy who plays Jason. And not to name some of the useless characters on the show no one would miss!
