Dylan McAvoy is a fictional character from the American soap opera,
The Young and the Restless, portrayed by Steve Burton. Dylan first
appeared on January 29, 2013. He is initially involved in a story arc
Avery Bailey Clark
Avery Bailey Clark (Jessica Collins), his former lover who
believes he died during the war in Afghanistan. Avery is stunned by
Dylan's return, but remains in a relationship with Nicholas Newman
(Joshua Morrow). Burton noted the extreme differences between Dylan
and Jason Morgan. The actor was able to have a new wardrobe and look.
While Jason was confined and "Stone Cold", Dylan has been credited by
Burton as allowing him to portray his lighter side in addition to more
of his own personality. The character was later paired with Chelsea
Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan); their short-lived romance received
negative reviews from viewers and critics alike.
In October 2013, it was revealed that Dylan is in fact the long-lost
Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), Nicholas' mother, making
them half-brothers. In June 2014, it was revealed that Dylan's
biological father is Nikki's childhood friend, and chief of police,
Paul Williams (Doug Davidson). Burton's performance earned him a
Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a
Drama Series in 2014 and 2016. In October 2016, Burton announced his
decision to not renew his deal with The Young and the Restless. He
made his final appearance on January 27, 2017.

"It is weird. It is bittersweet in a way. I loved GH. I loved my time
there and the people there. But it was also time for something new in
my life, a new challenge."
—Burton on joining the show, Entertainment Weekly
In October 2012, Burton departed the role of fan favorite Jason Morgan
on ABC Daytime's General Hospital. That November, news broke
The Young and the Restless
The Young and the Restless put out a casting call for a character
named Dylan, who was slated to "hit the airwaves" in early 2013. The
casting call described him as a "rugged, dynamic, energetic man in his
mid-30s" who "comes from humble, blue-collar beginnings, was studying
to be an architect when his construction/contractor father was injured
and Dylan had to drop out of college to take over the business. He's
done two tours of duty in the Middle East, army special ops. The war
left a mark on him. He's done his best to bury it with optimism and a
wry, sometimes offbeat sense of humor".
After the casting call was issued, there was brief speculation that
the character was a recast for Chance Chancellor, who was also a war
veteran. Later, Burton's name was attached to the role.
During an appearance on The
Talk the following January, Burton
officially confirmed that he was cast as Dylan. The
episode of The
Talk was described as "phenomenal"; Burton had no idea
it would have been "New Year's Eve kinda crazy." After one of the
Julie Chen made the announcement of his casting and
welcomed Burton to the CBS family, confetti dropped while another
Sheryl Underwood did a "wild happy dance". Burton said, "I
had no idea about the CBS badge or the welcome basket, or anything.
That’s not how I think. I understood why CBS did it, because it’s
a big deal. I get it. It’s so strange for me, because I have never
been one for all this publicity. They have been so gracious to me, and
it was so overwhelming that they would do something like that."
Burton made his first on-screen appearance during the episode dated
January 29, 2013. He attributed much of his success going back to the
1990s when he studied acting at Theater Theater in Hollywood,
California, coached by Chris Aable.
Burton's casting attracted a significant amount of media attention.
The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg noted that it reunited Burton
with executive producer Jill Farren Phelps, who was previously the
executive producer of General Hospital. Speaking about the
decision to cast him, Phelps told
TV Guide that the casting department
were seeing several actors for the role, and the thought of Burton was
"just a dream". She then contacted his manager and together they were
"able to make it work out so that Steve could continue to have the
life he wants in Nashville."
Discussing his decision to join The Young and the Restless, Burton
said on The Talk, "I told my manager if I can keep my family there and
I can spend time with them and come back and forth, I would do that in
a second. Without hesitation, CBS Daytime made that deal. Really
quickly. This is crazy, but I'm just so happy to have the best of both
worlds for my family, because before, I couldn't." Burton was
happy with the flexibility of his "short term" contract, "I'll get a
lot of long weekends and frequent weeks off so I can get back to
Nashville. I don't want to work five days a week like I did at GH", he
said during a
TV Guide interview. The actor said he had "those
first-day-of-school jitters" when he first arrived at the CBS
building, but was welcomed by everyone. A week before Burton's
debut on the series, a promotional ad aired, teasing his arrival with
the slogan Daytime's Hottest Soap Just Got Hotter!. In November
2014, Burton confirmed he had re-signed for another year with the
On October 6, 2016, Burton announced via-social media that he would
not renew his deal with the soap, and would exit the role of
Characterization and portrayal
Burton as Jason Morgan, seen wearing a typical black T-shirt, on
General Hospital (2010). The actor found Dylan to be more like himself
in contrast to Jason.
"I just know I don't want him to be anything like Jason. But, then,
I'm even concerned about that. I don't want to go too far away from
Jason because that might be pushing it. It might get weird."
—Burton, on trying to contrast Dylan from Jason.
Burton "loved the idea" of playing a character "very different" from
Jason Morgan, who was characterized as "Stone Cold". The role
of Dylan allowed him to wear colors other than black, which he was
famed for at General Hospital. Of returning to daytime television
without Jason Morgan's "uniform" and "black T-shirt", Burton described
the experience as "refreshing". Explaining his wardrobe process, he
said: "I never had to try stuff on. I'm not used to wardrobe fittings.
I had to try on about 20 different outfits! That was really grueling.
It was important to shake the leather coat and black t-shirt and do my
hair different, because I know people are always going to see me as
Burton revealed that Dylan is "a lot more" like himself. "Jason was so
stoic and didn't really get to show a lot of personality, unless it
was with Spinelli or Sam," he said. Dylan has a sense of humor, and
the actor felt that it would bring out a "lighter side" of his
acting. In addition to his "entire makeover" which included a new
hairstyle, Burton lost weight to play Dylan, as the costume department
wanted him to look younger. Burton admitted during an interview
Entertainment Weekly that he was worried about how Dylan would be
received, considering the "persona" of Jason is out there; he hoped
"people will buy" Dylan, although some people would say "You are Jason
and that's it." Burton told
Yahoo! that: "[Dylan is] extremely
different. That's the biggest thing for me, that after playing a
character, which I loved, for 21 years, coming here and trying to do
something different - 'cause I know fans are always gonna see me as
that character if they watch the show and if they watch both shows...
So, it's definitely a challenge because I was so used to playing that
character." Jason's "confined" ways allowed Dylan to have a "little
more" of Burton's own personality.
Before his debut, Phelps revealed that Dylan was "greatly traumatized
by what happened to him in Afghanistan" and had been "severely
injured" but rescued, which is why people believed he had died.
Along with being a war veteran, Dylan takes over his family's
Upon Burton's casting, it was revealed by
MSN that Dylan, who was
described as "the mysterious ex Avery keeps bringing up" by Jillian
Bowe of Zap2it, would be involved in a love triangle with his
Avery Bailey Clark
Avery Bailey Clark (Jessica Collins) and her current
Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow). Of Dylan's storyline and
involvement in the love triangle, Phelps said: "Dylan does come to
town to find Avery but this story has much more complexity than that
[...] What you think is going to happen is not what's going to
happen." She noted that Avery was the "great love of his life",
though she may not have "the same feelings for him." Avery
believed that Dylan died during war;
TVLine commented that "such a
resurrection" would "surely" derail her romance with Nick. During
an interview with MSN, Burton said, "Nick and Dylan will definitely
fight for her, but ultimately, it's going to be her choice." Dylan
and Avery had an affair while she was still married to her ex-husband,
but still had a "great relationship", which was shown through
flashbacks. Dylan's primary goal in coming to Genoa City was to make
sure she was happy, and if she wanted to get back together. Burton
said that Dylan can't get Avery off his mind despite the fact that she
had moved on.
Fans of the show speculated that Dylan would be paired with Nick's
Sharon Newman (Sharon Case), to which Case responded by
stating, "Everybody’s speculating about Dylan, the new character
coming to town but, all I can say is, I think it’s fun because
it’s a hoot to speculate". Luke Kerr of
Zap2it noted how fast
Dylan met Sharon, and said they could potentially be a "popular
pairing with fans". Of working with Case, Burton stated: "Sharon
Case is actually very fun, and she makes me laugh. So half the time in
scenes where I am laughing, I am really laughing at Sharon! She has
that personality where she makes me laugh." He also noted that fans of
the show on
Twitter have seen how "comfortable" and "easy" the
character's on-screen relationship is. Dylan later shares a
one-night stand with
Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan), who was
pregnant with Adam Newman's (Michael Muhney) child; she decides to
pass the baby off as Dylan's, and the two later marry. Egan described
the character's decision to keep the child's paternity a secret as a
"ticking time bomb". Burton stated that Dylan is "not the sharpest
tool in the shed", since he believed what Chelsea was telling him.
When asked about the child, Burton said: "This kid is everything to
him, so once we figure out whose it is, if it’s not his, it’s not
going to be a good situation for anybody." When asked if Dylan could
forgive Chelsea, Burton added: "That’s a tough one. I don’t know
what kind of mental state this is going to put Dylan in, to even think
In October 2013, it was revealed on-screen that Dylan is in fact the
long-lost son of
Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). Scott had
previously previewed her upcoming storyline in an interview with
On-Air On-Soaps, stating: "I love this story! Now, I don’t know how
it’s all going to turn out, but the premise, the people I get to
work with, and the writing, has been spectacular. That’s all you
need; good actors performing a good script, and our fabulous new
directing team, and I love them all. I have not been this happy at
work in a while." Burton stated in an interview that he enjoyed
the plot twist, and compared it to Jason Morgan being Monica
Quartermaine's (Leslie Charleson) son on General Hospital. He said
that he felt a connection while working with Scott, stating: "There is
vulnerability there between us, and it’s not on purpose. It’s just
something that is there. It was actually kind of there before it
happened that we were on-screen mother and son." In a separate
interview with Michael Logan of TV Guide, Scott stated: "Nikki thinks
she has come up with a good way of having everyone informed in the
kindest way possible. If it were me, I would think, "I can only go
through this once. It's too emotional! Let's sit everybody down at the
same time and get it over with." Nikki had intended to reveal the news
privately to Dylan but that opportunity never comes up." Speaking of
how the revelation would affect Nicholas, Scott added, "She feels very
badly about Nick losing Avery but not bad enough that she doesn't
expect Nick to play nice and accept this man — not necessarily as a
brother but still as a member of the family. She expects him to find a
way to be civil. She wants everyone to be happy together." Speculation
also arose that Nikki's son could be Dylan's best friend Stitch
Rayburn (Sean Carrigan), to which Scott teased, "Maybe that's coming.
Nikki had cult twins! You never know. I think
Sean Carrigan could
believably play my son. I think he looks a little like me, probably
more like me than Steve Burton does."
Dylan McAvoy grew up in Darien, Connecticut, and befriended Phyllis
Summers (Michelle Stafford) during his childhood. He moved to Chicago
and as a young adult took over his father's construction company after
he became injured in an accident. He did construction work for
Phyllis' sister, defense attorney
Avery Bailey Clark
Avery Bailey Clark (Jessica
Collins). Avery's husband, Joe, neglected her and she began an affair
with Dylan. Before being deployed overseas with the U.S. Army, Dylan
buys Avery a ring and asks her to leave her husband for him, but she
refuses, wanting to work on her marriage. Later, Joe finds out about
the affair and divorces Avery. While reading a newspaper months later,
Avery discovers that Dylan had been killed in
Afghanistan during the
war. She moves to Genoa City and begins a relationship with Phyllis'
Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow). After acting mysterious
about her past, Avery admits to Nick that she had an affair with
Dylan, who had died.
In 2013, Dylan arrives in Genoa City, having survived the war and
wanting to make sure Avery is happy. He runs into Sharon Newman
(Sharon Case), Nick's ex-wife who gives him directions to Nick's club,
The Underground. While posing under the name "Mack", Dylan gets a job
as bartender at The Underground, so he could see Avery from afar.
During The Underground's opening night, Avery sees a rock which she
gave to Dylan years ago sitting on the bar. She later goes to the
basement and comes face to face with Dylan. In a state of confusion,
shock and disbelief, Avery hides her emotions when Nick closely
follows. Later, she confronts Dylan at his apartment, angry for not
telling her he was alive earlier. She tells Nick about this, who fires
Dylan. Despite spending a friendly night with Dylan, Avery chooses to
remain with Nick, leaving Dylan shattered.
While driving out of town, Dylan's car collides with Sharon's during a
major snowstorm. She calls an ambulance, as Dylan shouts for someone
named "Sully". Dylan is taken to the hospital where it is revealed
Sully was Sullivan, a friend of his who was shot and killed in
Afghanistan while trying to shove Dylan a weapon. Sharon hires Dylan
as a contractor to fix her roof, and entire kitchen, after it is
damaged by the storm. Dylan bonds with Sharon's daughter Faith Newman
(Alyvia Alyn Lind). During a hike in the snow with Dylan and Faith,
Sharon injures her leg and Faith goes missing briefly; Dylan manages
to find her. Sharon and Dylan grow closer.
Later, Dylan's father's (Steve Gagnon) condition worsens, and Dylan
brings him to Genoa City so he can keep an eye on him while working on
Sharon's kitchen. His father dies, and he finishes Sharon's kitchen,
and decides to leave town. However, he has a one-night stand with
Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan), who is already pregnant and
considering finding a fake father for her child, as she was divorcing
the child's real father,
Adam Newman (Michael Muhney). Dylan comforts
Avery when she is being followed by men working for Marcus Wheeler
(Mark Pinter), as a result of a dangerous case she is working on.
Later, Dylan gets into a fight at Jimmy's Bar and is arrested. Avery
pays his bail, but he can't leave town for another month until his
hearing date, angering Nick. Chelsea then decides to pass her child
off as Dylan's, and the two begin a genuine relationship despite
Adam's suspicions that the child is actually his. Dylan later moves
Chelsea into his new loft and proposes to her, to which she accepts,
and he then arranges an impromptu wedding. Following the ceremony,
Chelsea goes into labor and Dylan delivers the child, whom they name
Terrence Connor McAvoy, after Dylan's father. However, the marriage
ends when Dylan learns that Connor is Adam's son, not his. He also
gets another shock when he discovers that he was adopted, and that his
birth mother is none other than Nick's mother,
Nikki Newman (Melody
In December 2012, while Burton's casting was only rumored, Deanna
Barnert of MSN's TV Buzz Blog wrote: "Assuming Burton actually comes
to The Young and the Restless, the biggest question on everyone's mind
is whether the former mob hit man will show up as a good guy, play
another a toughie with a heart or go pure villain." Barnert also said
it would be "interesting" to see whether "[Burton's] legion of fans
from Port Charles will follow him to Genoa City." Jill Farren
Phelps developed a reputation and "bad rap" because she "uses people"
according to Mark Pinter, an actor and friend of Phelps who had been
hired by her to portray
Marcus Wheeler on The Young and the Restless.
Barnert noted that Burton is "someone who has made his allegiance to
Phelps clear" which is why "many fans" had expected him to show up in
Genoa City "eventually". TV Guide's Michael Logan had also weighed
in on the rumors, calling Burton's "willingness" to work in Los
Angeles after leaving
General Hospital to live in
"puzzler". Logan suggested that there could have been more to his
decision to quit General Hospital. Stephen Nichols, who had portrayed
Tucker McCall on
The Young and the Restless
The Young and the Restless for over three years, was
fired that December. Logan said Phelps, who was "under orders" to trim
the show's budget, may have fired Nichols in order to afford Burton in
lieu of him.
Once news of Burton's official casting broke, fans of General Hospital
reacted with disappointment and mixed feelings, unaware of his
reasoning. While some fans were willing to support his move, others
felt "duped". Burton felt that reactions from people who knew the
story were "good", but it was at first "difficult".
When asked by
TV Guide if he would've remained on
General Hospital had
the show's producers "tried harder" to accommodate his personal life,
Burton stated: "I don't want to point fingers. I know there are a lot
of disappointed fans. They don't really understand what goes on behind
the doors. They don't understand why I wouldn't go back to play Jason
if I'm ready to work again. But what happens at GH should stay at
GH." Phelps dismissed rumors that she has "lured" Burton away from
General Hospital. While clarifying rumors about him leaving
General Hospital because of Phelps' appointment as executive producer
of The Young and the Restless, Burton described them as "interesting".
He told On-Air On-Soaps that he knew people would try to put "two and
two together", but it was never his intention to leave General
Hospital purposely, as he just couldn't reach a contractual agreement
with the show. "It’s just like a sports player...when a deal does
not work out with his team, there might be another team out there that
might want him," Burton said. During the week Burton debuted on
the series as Dylan, the show experienced an increase of over 105,000
viewers, averaging 4.7 million viewers. Michael Fairman, during an
interview with Burton, noted the "significant increase" in viewers,
which Burton was a "big reason" for.
Performance and storylines
"As evidenced here, Burton has improved greatly as an actor since the
days when he played Jason Quartermaine Morgan on General Hospital. As
Dylan, he has found layers in his character, who has always been a guy
almost too good to be true since his introduction last year. Now
Burton has many opportunities to add more shades of gray to Dylan, a
hero in the war in Afghanistan."
—Journalist Connie Passalacqua Hayman on Burton's portrayal of Dylan
Burton's portrayal of Dylan has been generally well received. The
character's romance with
Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan),
however, garnered a negative response from viewers and critics alike.
Luke Kerr of
Zap2it wrote that their storyline was "everyone’s
favorite storyline for curing insomnia". Despite negative reviews,
Burton's portrayal during the storyline was praised, specifically by
journalist Connie Passalacqua Hayman, who wrote: "But it was Steve
Burton as Dylan who stole the show with Dylan’s tearful and very
sensitive reaction to the news, as his character loves what he
believed to be his baby very much." When the truth about the
paternity of Chelsea's child was revealed, Michael Fairman of On-Air
On-Soaps remarked (in reference to Burton), "When the truth came out
it provided some meaty material for this fan favorite." Sara Bibel
Xfinity gave a mixed review when Dylan was revealed as Nikki's son,
writing: "However, the foreshadowing that Dylan (Steve Burton) is
going to turn out to be Nikki’s long-lost son is so heavy-handed
that it seems hard to believe that the show is going in any other
direction. Dylan is the right age. He looks like he could be related
to Nikki. The character is in desperate need of a more ties to the
canvas; being Avery’s ex is not enough to keep him in town, much
less front-and-center. My big objection to this twist is, what’s the
actual story? We have spent months learning every single thing about
this character who probably would not exist if Y&R hadn’t jumped
at the chance to poach Burton from GH." She added: "Dylan would
get a mother to replace his father that passed away. Nikki would get a
child who can use his carpentry skills to build her a nice bookcase.
That’s sweet, but it’s a situation, not a plot. There really
aren’t any consequences. Nick would be angry that the guy he’s
convinced Avery still loves is his half-brother, but he already has
one half-brother he despises. Another one really isn’t a big
deal." Burton's portrayal earned him a nomination for the Daytime
Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2014
