The character of Dr. Hamilton Finn on GENERAL HOSPITAL is a major player on Port Charles, but it’s understandable if some fans of the soap have a little trouble distinguishing his history from that of his look-alikes, since portrayer Michael Easton has played multiple roles on the show! See, back in 2012, Easton joined the cast of GH as his ONE LIFE TO LIVE alter ego John McBain. But when legal issues prevented GH from using the OLTL characters, John was written out and he began playing the role of Dr. Silas Clay. Unfortunately, that poor guy was murdered in 2015, and a year later, Easton rejoined the soap as another doctor, Hamilton Finn! So we’re just going to focus on him!

While many suspected he was a drug addict, they were misinformed. He was in fact simply trying to keep himself from dying! Finn found new life in Port Charles, and also a new love. But unfortunately, she broke his heart into a million pieces. He’s trying to put it back together, but that can take a while.
