Jack Stephen Burton

Birth Name: Steve Burton
Birth Place: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States
Profession: Actor: Jason on General Hospital (Present), Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless (2013 – 2017)


Born Jack Stephen Burton on June 28, 1970 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He graduated from Beverly Hills High school in 1988, the year after his first big role as Chris Fuller on Out of This World. He snagged the role of Harris Michaels on Days of Our Lives in 1988.

Shortly after ending his stint on Out of the World in 1991, Burton signed on to play Jason Quartermaine, and the rest is soap opera history.

There were other roles, pivotal roles such as the Steven Spielberg’s mini-series Taken and The Last Castle with Robert Redford and James Gandolfini, but it was the role of Jason that won over fans and critics alike.

In addition to acting, Steve is a highly sought after voice-over talent, voicing the character of Cloud Strife for the popular series of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. And when he isn’t acting, or doing voice-overs, Burton is singing.

He has even toured with his General Hospital co-stars Scott Reeves (ex-Steven Webber), Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara) and Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli) in the band they lovingly call Port Chuck.

After an Emmy award-winning stint as Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless from 2013 – 2017, Steve has returned to his former show, General Hospital as Patient 6. When not taping, he will be hanging close to his wife and kids and promoting his newest venture, Burton Nutrition Company.
