    Dr. Hamilton Finn, M.D. or simply just Finn is a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital.

    He has been portrayed by actor Michael Easton since the character's debut on March 21, 2016.


    On February 2, 2016, executive producer Frank Valentini, posted that he asked Easton back to General Hospital.[10][11][12][13]

    Easton is known for his roles as Caleb Morley (aka Stephen Clay) defunct spinoff Port Charles (2001; 2002-03), John McBain on the now canceled ABC soap opera One Life to Live (2003-12) and General Hospital (2012-13) and Silas Clay on General Hospital from May 13, 2013 until the character's death in August 2015.

    When several former PC characters and actors returned to GH in 2013, writers decided to revisit the vampire storyline from PC as a way to pay tribute.[14] They put their own spin on it, and Easton started playing a dual role of John and an adapted version of Caleb on February 4 to March 13, 2013.[15]

    Easton was originally scheduled to appear on March 18, 2016.[16] Due to the death of former First Lady Nancy Reagan and her funeral airing that day, it was pushed back to March 21, 2016.[17] He is also under contract.[18][19]


    Finn lost his wife because of what Hayden's father, Raymond Berlin did. Due to Raymond's ponzi scheme, the clinic where Finn was researching lost funding and he was unable to continue his research. Finn also harbors a lot of guilt for his wife, Reiko's death.

    Finn reveals to Hayden Barnes that Reiko wanted to return home to her family. However, Finn was set on continuing his research, so Reiko made the decision to stay with Finn. During his research, Finn inadvertently exposed Reiko and himself to the disease that ended up killing her and infecting him. His guilt is part of what drives him to find a cure.

    He has one child, Baby Finn, presumably born in November 2017, with his ex-fiancée, Hayden Barnes.




    Dr. Hamilton Finn (who likes to be called Finn) is called to GH by Dr. Monica Quartermaine to help her sister-in-law, Tracy Quartermaine. When he arrives at the hospital he is accompanied by his bearded dragon service lizard, Roxy. He is also told multiple times that he looks like the late, Dr. Silas Clay. He also diagnosed Tracy with worms in her brain from when she went to Mexico. On June 20, 2016, he revealed to Hayden Barnes that he's dying.

    He was also a suspect in the the attempted murder of Lucas Jones. Dr. Finn was also a suspect in the deaths of patients at the hospital but was in prison when Dr. Mayes was murdered making it impossible for it to be him.


    Finn and Hayden make love

    On December 22, 2016, he was cured of Blackwood's syndrome as is Hayden who also go the disease after cutting her finger. Afterward their brush with death, they started a relationship. It was also revealed that he is addicted to Zen-Zen.



    In May 2017, Finn and Hayden suspect that someone is tampering with his drug results so they switch it with Hayden's sample as they wanted to see if it still came out positive, which it did. But something else came out positive and Griffin told them that Hayden is pregnant. After finding out, Hayden wasn't sure she wanted to be a mom and Finn told her he would support her in whatever she decided. Eventually, with Finn's support, she decided to keep the baby. Hayden and Finn have also expressed that they love each other.
