‘General Hospital’ spoilers tease that Michael Easton is returning to ‘GH!’ Easton’s character Silas Clay was killed off in 2015 – and his exit created an uproar among fans of the ABC soap opera. Even Michael Easton was not too happy with his character’s exit, and he made that pretty clear in a couple of interviews. Apparently, TPTB at ‘General Hospital’ heard the fans’ outcries – and Frank Valentini announced today in a video on Twitter that Easton will be returning!
Frank Valentini has been teasing fans that he had a huge announcement to kick off Fan February – he took to Twitter on Tuesday February 2nd and teased his followers, “Guess what happened yesterday.” Then he added “Let me just show you.” Then Frank uploaded a video of himself and Easton in a grocery store. In the video they casually bump in to each other in the cereal aisle – and Frank asks Michael if he is interested in returning to ‘General Hospital.’ Michael agrees to see Frank in a few weeks after Valentini teases that he “has something great for him.”
In the video Frank didn’t specifically say what part Michael would be returning as though. Are they bringing Silas Clay back from the dead? Or could it be a different character that Easton played on the soap – Caleb or John McBane? Regardless, we are so thrilled to welcome back Michael Easton and we can’t wait to see him back on our television screens! What do you think of the surprise casting? Let us know in the comments below!
UPDATE: Speculation is running rampant as to how Michael Easton is returning. Although Frank’s video was vague, ABC’s current show manager Nathan Varni may have spilled the beans on the surprise – he posted on Facebook, “Easton returns soon to #gh in an exciting new role, more details to come later this month!” So, Easton might not be playing ANY of his previous characters!
