Thomas Ashford Jr on ABC's "General Hospital"
Thomas Ashford Jr. is the son of Shawn Butler and Jordan Ashford and the legal son of the late, Thomas "Tommy" Ashford Sr. TJ Ashford came to Port Charles as a troubled teen who is angry with Shawn for killing his father. TJ's mother gave him the option of living with Shawn or military school, because she could no longer handle him herself. On his second day in Port Charles, TJ was already in trouble for car theft. He befriended Molly Lansing-Davis and later they secretly started dating. Molly proved to be a good influence on him and TJ has left his bad boy image mostly in the past.
