Just when you think Anthony Geary couldn't possibly dazzle us more, he does! The seven-time Emmy winner, who plays General Hospital's Luke Spencer, is once again causing trophy buzz, this time for his kickass turn as Luke's evil lookalike, who has been tagged Fluke — for Fake Luke — by the fans. Now for the bad news: Geary, who recently underwent major surgery, will be off the show until the fall for an extended recovery and vacation, so it will be quite a while before Fluke's true identity is revealed. But not so fast! TV Guide Magazine grabbed Geary before he jetted off to rest up at his home in Amsterdam and had a candid chat about his health, his art and Fluke's pervy scenes with Kiki!
When we last saw General Hospital's Scotty Baldwin — the fan fave rascal played by Kin Shriner — he was abruptly ending his marriage to Laura (Genie Francis) because he suspected she was still hung up on her ex-hubby Luke (Anthony Geary). But Scotty didn't flee Port Chuck to lick his wounds. Instead he vowed to stay in town and reclaim his old gig as D.A. Now the election campaign is about to kick off — but who the hell would vote for a guy whose rap sheet includes robbery, blackmail, kidnapping, assault and illegal burial? Well, for one, Shriner would!
General Hospital's Luke Spencer is slowly dying from polonium poisoning so what better time to interview the guy who plays him, seven-time Emmy winner Anthony Geary? TV Guide Magazine corralled daytime's lion king to discuss his character's current bout with mortality and other dishy topics — from his issues with Luke and Laura to the GH head writer who wanted him fired!
TV Guide Magazine: What's the trick to making us believe Luke is at death's door when we know damn well they'd never get rid of you?
Geary: That's very kind but, in the soap business, everyone is expendable and you never take anything for granted. That said, I'm not sure the audience does buy this. When that ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned with polonium a few years back — they think by Putin — he was covered in gruesome sores. It's a hellish death. I really wanted to go there but they wouldn't let me. [Laughs] I do love to look bad.
General Hospital star Kirsten Storms and her former costar Brandon Barash secretly wed and are now having a baby, People reports.
"We're having a little girl in January," Barash, 33, said. "It's been the most amazing couple of months of our lives."
