Michael Easton's exit as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Dr. Silas Clay didn't just take fans by surprise; it also caught the actor off guard! But being the classy guy he is, Easton is taking his dismissal in stride.
In the current ABC issue of Soaps In Depth, Easton opens up his reaction to finding out that Silas was being killed off, the petition fans have started in an effort to save the character and the talk of him joining another soap. "You do this over time and you get used to saying good-bye to people," he admits with a sad smile. "I'm not rushing into anything. I'm going to look to see what's out there, be patient and enjoy time with the family. And do a little writing to clear my head."
