seankanandeacon_bbpromoWith word of Sean Kanan returning to "General Hospital" next month in an as yet to-be-determined role, despite portraying AJ Quartermaine 15 years ago on the drama series, I recently noted an uncanny similarity Kanan currently has with former co-star and on screen brother Steve Burton.

I believe Kanan and Burton are related, so there can be a family resemblance.

is it distant cousins? I just thought they were related by marriage. I didn't know how close. I wonder if they've kept up with each other. I know some families are close and some are not. especially if it's a distant cousin. If it's a regular cousin by marriage, it's possible they've kept in touch. I know Steve wasn't married at the time everyone found out they were "related" in some way so i know it's not his wife family.

Yes they do look alike but i don't know if i can see him in the role of Jason "stone cold." I would much rather see him be in a role where he can show emotions like bring AJ back or have AJ have a twin that Monica had no memory of giving birth to. or have Billy Wolek be the imposter and the real AJ's been in some clinic or whatever for the past 15 years.

Depends on what you believe...

1. Old issue of SOD says they are distant cousins
2. IMDb says they are related by marriage

Errol they're distant cousins, they both said it years ago, I remember them saying they were related by blood. They're not direct cousins like 1st cousins

They are distance cousin's related by marriage there's no blood shared.


I don't know where people get that from, they're blood related, distant cousins are people who are related by blood, it's usually a 4th or 5th cousin.

They wouldn't look alike if they were only related by marriage.....

I specifically remember them saying a few years ago they are distant cousins by marriage. Distant cousins does not mean blood related.

He's got very wide hips. He's not fat but he ain't skinny either.

But he is the new Jason Morgan, or else Errol probably wouldn't write an article about the striking resemblance. ;)

I remember yrs ago he and Burton talked about how people would say they looked like brothers in real life and they said it's cause they're cousins, that it's distant but they're related.

A cousin in law is someone related by marriage, not a distant cousin.

Not everyone calls there cousins by marriage cousin in laws. In fact I've enver heard anyone use that term. Plenty of people call them just cousins or distant cousins.

It matters if Jason and Sean's character hook up before Jason leaves town. ;)
