General Hospital News And Spoilers: GH Legend Anthony Geary’s Heartfelt Tribute To Jackie Is So Touching

Anthony Geary’s Jackie Zeman tribute reminds us of why General Hospital has been going strong for 60 years. …It’s not every day actors jump aboard the ship of a new working endeavor and sail off into paradise. In reality, a well-written storyline can only take a show so far. But it’s the actors who light up the screen that make the magic happen. Arguably, much of General Hospital’s success can be attributed to it’s extraordinary cast.

In television, many times the chemistry between co-stars is nonexistent. And sometimes there is some underlying reason that a show, a storyline, or even the characters themselves become a flop. Most gratefully, that’s not the case when it comes to the actors who made General Hospital what it is today. Jackie Zeman leaves her legacy as having been part of what was quite possibly the most iconic daytime tv crew. Her group of co-stars and off-screen pals include Anthony Geary (Lucas Lorenzo Spencer), Genie Francis (Laura Webber Spencer Collins), Kristina Wagner and John J. York (Felicia and Mac Scorpio), among other veteran actors.

General Hospital News

Following the tragic news of Jackie Zeman’s passing, co-star and life-long friend Anthony Geary paid tribute to his former co-star and tv sibling. Geary’s statement was told to TV Line after news about Jackie broke out. He said, “I was fortunate enough to play Jackie Zeman’s big brother on General Hospital. In all those years, I never heard her utter one disparaging word about any actor, crew member or co-worker. In fact, I never heard Jackie express an unkind word about anyone, ever.

“In a highly competitive profession where ego, feelings and emotions are bread and butter, I’ve found this quality to be extremely rare. I expect it will be even more rare now that dear Jackie is gone,” he added. “She was quite simply one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever known.”

That has got to be the most genuine thing to say about someone. Although we didn’t know her personally, it’s obvious that Jackie’s presence was a peaceful, lighthearted, and positive spirit to be around. Thanks to Geary, the fans have a better understanding of who Jaclyn Zeman was as a beloved mother, friend, actor, and more.

Over the years, Zeman and Geary became close friends. The love and respect they have for one another is crystal clear in Anthony’s statement. When reflecting on his friend’s life, he added, “I will miss her laugh, and the deep, soulful look in her eyes whenever she expressed the love and pride she had in her two lovely daughters. Tonight, l already miss her, and feel a powerful ache where Jackie’s smile used to be.”

We continue to keep Jackie’s loved ones in our thoughts and prayers. Please keep checking back for updates regarding GH’s tribute episode.

General Hospital Spoilers: The Luke Spencer Mystery Finally Solved

The mystery of Fluke/Luke Spencer has been one hell of a roller coaster for a longer period of time than fans ever expected. For over an entire year fans have been left in the dark to try and unravel the mystery behind fake Luke Spencer. Was he an impostor? Was it plastic surgery, a mask? Was it all in his mind, brainwashing from his arch enemy Helena Cassadine?

Tracy, Lulu, Bobbie, and all of Luke’s loved ones and friends couldn’t wrap their heads around is peculiar behavior over the past year. He has been sneaky to say that least, and down right dangerous. He has hurt those who love him the most, and who he loves dearly. Nothing was adding up, especially in the most recent explanation that Luke was just being himself, no regrets. The thought of Luke trying to kill his own cupcake, Lulu, and his love, Tracy Quartermaine, rattled many cages. Fans were upset because the legendary Luke Spencer they had known for decades was now gone. The characters of GH who surround Luke are feeling the exact same way. He has become a stranger to his family and friends, and his own sister Bobbie is ready to throw in the towel.

With the help of Helena’s explanation to Nikolas and Lulu, and Bobbie getting through to Luke, the mystery has finally been solved. Fake Luke isn’t another person, he isn’t wearing a mask, he hasn’t been brainwashed, and he didn’t just change his mind and turn against the ones he loves. The way Luke “snapped out of it” when Bobbie was preaching to him gave the impression that Luke hasn’t been aware of how he has been behaving because of split personalities.

The concept of DID on soaps is not a new one, the most famous DID story in soap history is from One Life to Live, involving Victoria Lord and her alter egos. More recently, General Hospital used DID in the story with Connie Falconeri/Kate Howard.

It looks like this is where the writers are going with this ongoing Luke Spencer mystery. The mystery has finally been solved. Luke has DID due to traumatic events he experienced growing up in the old Spencer home. General Hospital spoilers reveal that those times are about to resurface, and Luke will have to face what he went through yet again. Will going down memeory line hurt or help his state of mind?

How do you feel about this DID story involving Luke Spencer? Are you happy this story has finally been solved?
