Easton joined GH in 2012 as John McBain, crossing over his One Life to Live character after ABC canceled the show. When Prospect Park was finally able to bring OLTL back into production in 2013, GH had to quickly write off the character, along with Roger Howarth's Todd and Kristen Alderson's Starr. GH continued to use all three actors but in totally different roles (Silas, Franco and Kiki). Alderson left GH earlier this year.
Soap Opera Digest recently mentioned that GH had a murder mystery in the works, and the victim was played by a soap hopping star who taped their final scenes in June. Will Silas be murdered?
Easton's departure from GH has now been confirmed.
