something rare happened in my home state of Michigan. It was a soap fan
event with General Hospital’s Steve Burton. Steve (Jason Morgan) did a fan
“meet and greet” at Chaplain’s Comedy
in Clinton Township.
Steve spent about an hour talking to
fans and sharing information about himself. Throughout his set, Steve also
answered questions from the audience. He even shared the story of how he
met his wife while she was working as an intern at General Hospital. He
also credited Maurice Benard for helping him improve his acting skills.
Burton said Benard took time out of his schedule years ago to “coach” him.
Steve Burton had no problem
admitting that he doesn’t watch General Hospital. He had the audience bring
him up to speed on what’s happened lately. Burton said the current story
with Michael getting shot has been a difficult one. Burton talked about his
other projects, including a Western that’s slated to begin shooting soon.
Halfway through the show, Steve was
joined by Derk Cheetwood (Max). Cheetwood shared some amusing upcoming
stories about Max and Diane with the audience. Burton and Cheetwood are
close friends and former roommates. The two have been doing comedy club appearances together lately.
The crowd was small but
enthusiastic. Not surprisingly it was made up mostly of women. After the
show, fans were able to take a picture with both actors. Steve and Derk
were warm and friendly with the fans. It was a pleasure to meet both of
