General Hospital's Kin Shriner Is Back. Will Scotty Be the New D.A.?

Kin Shriner

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!

Exclusive: General Hospital's Anthony Geary On Life, Death and the Future of Luke and Laura

Anthony Geary

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.

Exclusive: Chandler Massey Talks About His Sudden, Controversial Exit From Days or Our Lives

Chandler Massey

Two-time Emmy winner Chandler Massey filmed his final scenes as Days of Our Lives' gay heartthrob Will Horton on Friday, Aug. 23 — only he didn't know they were his last until he was summoned at the end of his work day to the office of Greg Meng, the soap's co-executive producer. During this meeting, Meng informed Massey, who had been planning to depart the NBC soap when his contract expired in December, that he would have to leave immediately because a replacement had already been hired. Massey exited the studio sans fanfare — no farewell party, no goodbyes, no nothing — and sources close to the young actor say he was devastated and in tears. His last episode will air on or around Dec. 31. read more
