General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that daytime legend Steve Burton has spent much of his life entertaining fans, on a multiplicity of shows. Did you know he debuted as a screen star all the way back in 1986?
There are probably some fans who weren’t even born then! Burton’s small screen debut was as an FBI agent in The Manhattan Project. Steve also appeared on the sitcom, Out Of This World, from 1987-1991, and today he is best known to the audience for his roles on General Hospital and The Young and The Restless. Now there is another soap for Burton’s fans to get acquainted with, Beyond Salem.

General Hospital fans were treated to Burton as Jason Quartermaine, a promising med student before he had a tragic accident that transformed him into Jason Morgan.
Whereas Jason was sweet and mild-mannered, a head injury left him completely different and he became a mob enforcer for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). As far as “soap couples” go, Sonny and Jason are right up there in popularity with the show’s other celebrated couple, Luke and Laura (Tony Geary and Genie Francis).
