A New Lucky Spencer Could Be on His Way to PC

Lucky Spencer is the son of legendary lovers Lucas Lorenzo (Luke) Spencer (Tony Geary) and the beautiful Laura Spencer (Genie Francis). He is the half brother of Prince Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) and the ex-husband of the lovely Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), among many other connections in Port Charles.

Lucky left Port Charles after being betrayed and hurt by the love of his life, Elizabeth and his own brother, Nikolas. Liz and Nik were best friends for many years. In more recent years, after being on and off again with Liz’s great love Lucky, and Nikolas losing his true love and Liz’s best friend Emily, Nik and Liz grew to be more than friends. There relationship became romantic and was a steamy love affair. Lucky’s heart belonged to Elizabeth at the time and Liz was torn between the two brothers. When Lucky found out that he had been betrayed by the two people he cared for most, he ultimately ended up leaving town.

Since actor and portrayer of Lucky Spencer, Jonathan Jackson is now on ABC’s hit series, Nashville, it doesn’t look like we will be seeing him reprise his role as Lucky any time soon.

There have been recent rumors circulating regarding Lucky returning to GH and who will be playing him. It seems like General Hospital has been getting a few stars from NBC’s The Young and the Restless, such as Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay) and possibly Billy Miller who has been reported to play the new Jason Morgan this August. The most current news regarding a new Lucky is that Y&R star Michael Muhney will be cast to play General Hospital’s Lucky Spencer. Recently, he and actor Rick Hearts (Ric Lansing) have been quite friendly with their twitter exchanges. There is a possibility that the two have gotten to know one another taping on the set of GH. With Michael Muhney’s recent departure from Y&R, it is likely that this rumor will come true in the near future.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans posted on any concrete news from executives that confirm this casting rumor. In the mean time, hang tight and keep watching GH!

Who is Staying in Port Charles? Who Will be Leaving?

General Hosptal’s 50th anniversary brought back many familiar faces. Some we expected to see and others came as a complete shock. Have you been wondering which of these characters will be sticking around and for how long? We have some answers for you. In an interview with TV Guide, Ron Carlivati gives fans the inside scoop on the actors/characters comings and going.

Luke, Laura, and Scotty’s love triangle still has room to grow. Even after Luke and Laura get back from their adventure of saving their daughter, Lulu, these three characters will be sticking around so that Luke, Laura, and Scotty can work things out.

Carlivati states that Lucy Coe and her portrayer Lynn Herring will be sticking around Port Charles for a long while. He even says, “I think Lucy is already planning next year’s Nurses Ball!”

Felicia (Kristina Wagner) had to choose between the two great loves of her life, Frisco (Jack Wagner) and Mac John York). She chose Mac and now Frisco is bitter and angry. Maxie is having a baby in a few months so this does leave an opening for a possible visit from Frisco in the near future.

Ingo Rademacher (Jax) scored a spot on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars so GH had less time to work with him. The whole story with Brenda, Michael and Carly was a quick decision after Ingo was set to be on DWTS.

Regarding Nurse Bobbi (Jackie Zeman), Carlivati tells TV Guide that she will be leaving Port Charles. But he says she will definitely be returning to Port Charles for other important events.

There as been a lot of back and forth regarding whether or not John Stamos will be reprising his role as Blackie Parrish. Carlivati explains threat there was a lot of confusion and miscommunication when it comes to Stamos. He also mentions that there is still a possibility for his return in the future.

Those at GH plan to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary all year long. This leaves a lot of time for more intense, classic GH stories involving vet characters.
