In the most recent issue of Soaps in Depth Magazine, legendary General Hospital icon, Anthony Geary, talks to sources about his career at General Hospital, Head Writer Ron Carlivati, Executive Producer Frank Valentini, and the Fluke Story coming full circle.
There are huge General Hospital rumors circulating in regard to Tony Geary’s status with GH, Luke Spencer’s family secret, and just exactly how the Fluke story will come to a close. Fans have been speculating that at this time, as we creep up to GH’s 52nd anniversary, is when the Spencer family secret will be revealed, and Geary will end his 37 year role on ABC’s General Hospital.
Tony Geary tells SID that Carlivati leaves nothing unanswered when it comes to this whole Fluke story, the DID will tie into the beginning of Luke Spencer, including the rape of Laura, and will even explain why Luke disappears unannounced, leaving his family and loved ones behind. This story will ultimately come full circle. Geary is extremely pleased with the direction Ron Carlivati is taking this character. He tells sources at SID, “I am so thrilled. I feel like they’ve done an amazing job into pulling this character into an understandable, motivated ball after thirty seven years.”
Geary tells Soaps in Depth that he gives credit to Executive Producer Frank Valentini as well for giving him the opportunity to place this dark side of Luke. “I was getting weary, and thinking it was time to go,” he revealed, ‘Frank said, ‘What haven’t you done on the show?’ I said that I wanted to explore the dark side of Luke.” It looks as though Valentini did just that, he listened to Geary’s request and made it happen.
