ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers finds that star Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) recently opened up about his early days in daytime television and how eager he has been to get back to work on the set of the hit ABC soap. In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, the handsome star admits that when he first started out as his character Harris on ‘Days of Our Lives’, they were both exciting and stressful times. They were stressful mostly because he was so new to the industry and according to Steve, he had so much to learn. Here’s what he has to say!
Steve told the publication, “Being on ‘Days of Our Lives’ was just a new experience for me. It was really exciting. It was over at Sunset Gower, which I had auditioned at hundreds of times. That was a time when, I don’t want to say the heyday of soaps but I feel the late 80s and early 90s was a good time for soap operas. Stephen Nichols was there and Mary Beth Evans and Billy Warlock. I mean, it was all of those guys. My first real introduction to soap operas was ‘Days of Our Lives’. It was cool. Everybody was nice. It was fun. It wasn’t easy. And I still couldn’t act!”

Steve also admitted that he loves acting on soap operas so much that sitting at home during the coronavirus lockdown has been incredibly tough on him. He added, “There’s not many times in my life where I’ve had to stay home this long, and I’m sure that’s true for a lot of people. I’ve had a couple days in here that have been tough. You go through the emotional swing. We’re stuck at home. What’s going on. Can we go back to work? You get angry. You can’t get any correct information from anywhere. I know it’s a crazy roller coaster, but I’m just trying to stay focused.”
