I do not want him aged(replaced). I want him to wake up with the same actor playing him. What are [censored] thinking?
Totally agree. I love Dylan (?). He is Michael. Maybe GH will rethink it when they see people don't want that, at least I hope so. I like watching a kid grow up on the show like OLTL's Star and Matthew. It is nice. We will have to wait and see I guess.
Yeah, I think the audience is drawn more to characters when the actor has played them most of their lives. It's why Starr, Matthew & Robin are so effective. I think it would've been much more interesting to watch if Michael had been drawn not to the mob, but to numbers, & business setting up a conflict between the two worlds-the one he was born in & the one his mother chose for him.Perhaps after everyone gets their emmy reels from Michael's shooting(don't even get me started on the EW interview Guza did), Michael will wake up wanting the Q's in his life rather than the three people who put him in the line of fire to begin with. That would definately be more entertaining than yet another person dying(we've lost too many on this show this year, way too many)
Please TPTB leave Michael alone. Robin was allowed to grow up naturally and look how well that turned out.
They really should give him a chance to grow with the character like they did with Robin. This is a totall shme to let him go.
Well, I wouldn't say I'm "ticked off" about Michael, because I recognize that sometimes writers feel the need to shake things up a bit. However, I think aging Michael is not the right thing to do. I'm not saying this because I'm a huge fan of the actor (nor am I not a fan - I'm neutral, really). I'm saying this because I think that by aging Michael, the writers are overlooking a lot of potential storylines. Why not have Michael struggle with school? Have them find out he has a learning disability? Or let him deal with something a little more realistic; I know, soaps are really known for being realistic, but that doesn't mean they can't incorporate socially relevant stories that are actually quite prevalent, like dyslexia, for example. Or perhaps explore his first young crush. Or, maybe he could be bullied at school for not being good at sports. Possibilities for pre-teen angst storylines are endless. I think that the writers have just painted themselves into a corner by focusing so heavily on how his Dad's occupation affects him, and by repeatedly referring to him as a "little boy"...I mean, I'm sorry, but he's not little. Morgan is little. Michael is practically a teenager!I suppose all of this is pointless, since I have heard reports that the actor has already been let go and they are already searching for his replacement. Normally I wouldn't have said anything at all, but I read the actor was 'blindsided' by his firing. He's a talented young actor who GH should be proud to employ. But instead they are getting rid of him because they don't know what to do with him. That gives me another idea...why not just backburner him for a few years? Goodness knows that there are plenty of people on the backburner that he could join there. Heck, his whole biological family is there...he could join them for a bit!But hey, in the words of my favourite columnist, that's only my opinion.

Or maybe he could appear with Aunt Emily (even though she's adopted) and talk some sense into Nikolas. "Just die already! I'm bored!"I'm not thrilled that Dylan Cash is being replaced so that Michael can be aged, because I don't think I'm ready for an eighteen-year-old shirtless pretty boy to be running around as Carly's son. I well remember when Michael was born, and making him older is just dragging me down with him, and I don't like it. Boo.
