It was an unfortunate turn for General Hospital’s friendly neighborhood assassin when the walls of the cave came tumbling down upon him. But luckily, it is much kinder to his former portrayer, actor Steve Burton, who’s currently celebrating a major milestone.

Happy Birthday, Steve Burton

That’s because he was born on June 28, 1970, in Indianapolis, Indiana, which means that this perennial favorite is turning 52 years old today! Born Jack Stephen, Burton adopted his stage name and began his career with small parts in feature films like Hear No Evil, made-for-TV movies like I Want to Live, as well as episodes of TV shows like Manimal and A Year in the Life.

His first role of note was surfer Chris Fuller in the sitcom Out of This World. Subsequently, he appeared on Who’s The Boss and Days of our Lives as Harris Michaels — a role he is set to revisit this summer in the second installment of Beyond Salem.

On December 19, 1991, Burton debuted on General Hospital in the part of Jason Quartermaine — who would later morph into Jason Morgan following a storyline that saw the character suffer a traumatic brain injury and emerge with no memory at all.

Burton remained at GH until 2012 — and he picked up a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his efforts. Afterward, he spent four years playing Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless. It was a role that also netted him a Daytime Emmy in the same category.

In 2017, Burton returned to GH and reprised the role of Jason Morgan until the end of 2021. Burton’s other acting credits include guest appearances in Taken, GH: Night Shift, as well as the science fiction/action films CyberTracker and its sequel. Between 2002 and 2018, Burton was the voice of Cloud Strife, a character in the Kingdom Hearts videogame franchise.

Burton is a doting father to his three children — two daughters, Brooklyn Faith and Makena Grace, and a son, Jack Marshall. Soap Hub would like to wish Steve Burton a very happy birthday and you can too by clicking on the Twitter link below.
