Back in 2013, Steve Burton joined the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Dylan McAvoy and quickly became a fan favorite among viewers just as he had when he starred as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Jason. Sadly for viewers, the actor left the soap in January of 2017 to spend more time with his family. But Burton and his heroic alter ego are still much-missed by Y&R fans.
