Finn may be romantically involved with Anna now on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but there’s one woman who is still in his heart and always will be — Hayden Barnes. Michael Easton says that despite moving on with Anna, his alter ego is constantly reminded of the woman he loved and the baby that he believes she lost last September. “Every day I’ve been on camera, I have thought about the baby at some point,” the actor revealed to Soaps In Depth. “Anytime Finn is staring off or distracted as someone walks up on him, that’s what he’s thinking about.”
Finn and Hayden’s roller coaster romance wasn’t just a hit with GH fans, it was also popular with the actors involved. “That was an incredible storyline, emotionally,” Easton confided. “Finn was so self-involved, and all of a sudden, somebody pulled him out of that. He was going to get married and have a child. He got caught up in a wave… and to have it come crashing down so quickly, he’s devastated. It’s something he may never get over.”
Believing that Hayden dumped him and lost their baby, Finn has tried to put that part of his life in the past. But he has no idea that Hayden has lied to him and his child is actually out there with her somewhere in the world. And that’s a revelation that would change everything. “If he learned his baby was out there, he’d move heaven and earth to find him or her,” Easton promised.
And if Hayden came strolling back into Port Charles with that baby in her arms? “If done right, those are always grand reveals!” the actor mused. “Knocking down wedding doors when someone comes back to town is a classic — and certainly, as good an actress as Rebecca Budig (ex-Hayden) is, it would bring a lot of emotional weight. That makes sense to me… but I don’t know what’s coming!”
