Question: Why did Steve Burton leave “General Hospital” after so many years and go to “The Young and The Restless”?

Answer: According to Burton, those were two separate decisions. He told “Access Hollywood” that he decided to leave “General Hospital” late in 2012 to focus more on producing programming, to spend more time with his family and to move from Los Angeles to Nashville. He also needed a break from the daytime-drama grind. After about three months off, he was approached by Jill Farren Phelps, a Burton friend and former “GH” producer who is now executive producer of “Y&R”; she both had a role and was willing to have him spend most of his time in Nashville between trips to L.A. to make the soap.
