General Hospital News: Seeking New Character

General Hospital spoilers and news have revealed that GH executives have posted a casting call. It looks like we will be getting a new face around Port Charles. The question is, will this new face be a replacement for an actor who has left the canvas, or will this be an entirely new character altogether?
They are seeking a new character, an African-American male. This man is said to have to be in his mid 30s, and should be “very handsome, dynamic, and charismatic.”
This will be for a contract role on GH.

General Hospital rumors have speculated, guess that this may be a recast for Sean Blakemore’s character, Shawn Butler.

Let us know what you think. Is this casting call for a recast or a new character? General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated on any new information, and any confirmation of an actor chosen for this role.

Anthony Geary Says Goodbye to General Hospital As He Tapes His Last Scenes

EWGearyCheck out the video clip below of Tony’s last day on the set of General Hospital!

We all knew this day was coming, but it has really crept up on us all rather quickly. A few months back, General Hospital Blog shared the news that Anthony Geary had announces his retirement, after over 3 decades on the daytime drama, General Hospital. His character Luke Spencer is legendary to say the least. Geary and co-star Genie Francis made history as the infamous Luke and Laura.

Tuesday, June 22nd, Anthony Geary taped his very last seen as Lucas Lorenzo Spencer. Luke will be departing Port Charles later this Summer. It was an emotional goodbye, as his friends and cast mates bid him farewell after 37 years in the iconic role. Geary was surrounded by GH stars including Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine), Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe), Kristina Wagner (Felicia Jones), Kin Shriner (Scotty Baldwin), and more. At the farewell, friend Maurice Benard told Geary, “Not having you here is going to be sad for me.”

Anthony Geary has won 8 Daytime Emmy Awards for his role as Luke Spencer. He has called GH his home for 37 climactic years.

Leaving General Hospital is bitter sweet for Geary. Although it’s sad to say goodbye, he looks forward to what the future holds for his personal life and his career. Geary tells Entertainment Weekly, “I’m excited to raise the curtain on act 3, to reinvent myself in my new home to pursue whatever opportunity there may be. It’s  an exciting prospect to me. They’ve done a wonderful job of wrapping up the character. So this seems like the ideal time to go.”

As Geary walks away from the Daytime genre, he leaves with words of hope and encouragement for the industry and fans. In regard to the survival of daytime soaps, and the stir up involving the cancellation of One Life to Live and All My Children, Geary tells EW, “It was scary there for two or three years when every thing was being cancelled. The network thought that talk shows should take over because people weren’t going to be interested in soaps. But there has been a resurgence and I think that’s hopeful sign. I don’t believe it’s the end of the medium. Serialization is a great way to tell stories.”

Anthony Geary and Luke Spencer will be greatly missed by us at General Hospital Blog. Geary is an extremely talented actor, and Luke will never be forgotten. We wish him the absolute best in everything that comes his way going forward. It is sad to say goodbye, but there is a warm place in our hearts knowing that he gave so much to the industry for so long. Thank you Anthony Geary! We love you!

General Hospital Spoilers: Lulu Learns the Truth About Luke and Laura

General Hospital fans along with the residents of Port Charles have been left in the dark when it comes to Luke and Laura. On the surface, it looks as though Laura Spencer has come back to Port Charles to stake her claim in Luke, the love of her life. However, there is so much more to it than that. It has to be something HUGE for Luke to up and hurt Tracy like that, after he has been so sure of his love for her. Luke was ready to truly commit himself to Tracy Quartermaine once and for all until Laura came to him with unsettling news.

General Hospital spoilers have revealed that while Tracy and the rest of PC are angry with Luke, thinking he has chosen Laura, his daughter Lulu learns the truth. It has been rumored that Luke will end up disclosing to Lulu what he and Laura are actually up to, and what they are facing. Lulu must keep her parent’s secret from the rest of their family and friends, but will the secret also be kept from fans? We aren’t actually certain whether or not the writers a GH will be letting us in on Luke and Laura’s secret right off the bat. Odds are though that that will be going on an adventure together and we will get to see exactly what they are up to outside of Port Charles.

Since the news regarding Jonathan Jackson (Lucky Spencer), Emma Samms (Holly Sutton), and Nathan Parsons (Ethan Lovett)’s return, there are endless story line possibilities for Luke and Laura. Stayed tuned to General Hospital this Summer for all the adventure and drama, and to say farewell to the legendary Lucas Lorenzo Spencer.

 

General Hospital Spoilers: Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) and Nathan Parsons (Ethan) Return to General Hospital

Get ready for the Summer of General Hospital that you will never forget. As we all say goodbye to a legend, fans and cast members alike will come together to wish GH’s biggest star, Anthony Geary, farewell. A couple months ago, General Hospital Blog reported to you that Tony Geary had announced he will be retiring from General Hospital and leaving the show for good. Geary’s character Luke has been in and out of Port Charles for years, making his adventure story lines that much more intriguing and mysterious. As we learned the deep, dark, history of the Spencer family upbringing, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer’s entire character came full circle. Anthony Geary felt that at this time, it is the perfect time for him to hang up the many hats he wore while playing the funny, caring, free spirited, selfish, loving, cynical, (and much, much, more), man that was Luke.

This Summer we will say goodbye to Luke Spencer, and we will have many GH favorites to help with the sad time. General Hospital spoilers have revealed that, along with Genie Francis,  Jonathan Jackson will return this Summer to reprise his role as Lucky Spencer, Luke’s son, along with Lucky’s half brother, Ethan Lovett, played by Nathan Parsons. The two young men are set to tape their scenes at the end of June.
