I canNOT believe General Hospital has fired little Michael!
Dylan Cash, who entered Port Charles in the role of Michael Corinthos III when he was 7 years old in 2002, has been let go.
Apparently, GH plans to keep him in the coma for awhile and when he wakes up – he’ll be several years older AND another actor.
I just have one question.
What’s the point?
We’ve all watched Dylan grow up on GH from a little kid into a young man and a wonderful actor.
I, for one, am invested in Dylan as Michael and to switch him for another actor just to make him older doesn’t make sense to me.
There are enough older teens on GH now.
After all these years, I will find it hard to accept that all of sudden…Whalla! Michael’s 20!
It’s not so bad when they SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome) a child actor who has only been in the role for a short time.
But really, Dylan has been Michael for as long as I can remember.
It’s bad enough that GH killed off Emily (Natalia Livingston) and Georgie (Lindze Letherman).
Excuse me. I’m still livid about those killings.
Now, in essence, they’re killing off the Michael that we’ve all come to know and love.
According to several fan sites, Dylan was blindsided by the firing.
I find it all very sad.

    Michele you know why … they’ll SORAS Dylan so he can become a part of the mob world.
    Nobody will accept a mini (wannabe) mobster, but eventually (GH hopes) some of us will warm up to a young adult mobster who can terrorize PC alongside his “father” and uncle.
    Altho I know it’s part of “show biz”, it’s too bad they didn’t handle this better with Dylan. Show biz has to be more difficult for a child to grasp regardless of the circumstances. Especially since he did nothing wrong. Altho viewers didn’t always like the things Michael did, most were invested in the character.
    What a waste.
    So I guess Morgan is gonna have to get SORAS too, huh? (rolling eyes) Molly & Kristina too.

    I’ve been a fan of GH for a decade now and I’m just apalled by this. I’ve watched Dylan grow up on GH and its a shame that TPTB are just going to age micheal so they can get ANOTHER mob storyline! GH has NO idea how to incorperate kids in the show so they age them til they can get a storyline! I understand aging them a few years but COME ON! I’m SICK of every storyline being about the mob. Why can’t GH do a normal storyline like Micheal has his first crush. But no we go from 12 to 20 in 2 weeks!

    Hi Ali,
    I agree about the mob…I really hate all the violence. I began watching many, many years ago, when storylines were more about love and relationships.
    Ahhhhh the good old days. Wish they were back!
    And they should have kept Dylan and let him age on the show.
    Thanks for posting!

    if the character of michael corinthos is going to be 20 years when he wakes up, what is General Hospital going to do with the rest of the characters?? they will then have to age all of them or change them so that they match with michaels age. What about Elizabeths baby and so forth, this is crazy.

    When General Hospital kills off someone example: Alan Quartermaine, and Emily, do not keep showing the character for months on end, this does not make any sense. This just makes the fans of these characters feel angry seeing over and over again. Dead is Dead, whether it was the right decision or not. This makes the show boring and senseless.
