As General Hospital and its fans get ready to say goodbye to Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) on the July 27th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, GH is releasing some little video gems of retrospective clips of scenes with Tony’s co-stars and his cast mates sharing their sentiments about working alongside of him.

First up was Tony’s longtime on-screen nemesis Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) followed by Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) in a very touching tribute, and most recently late last week, Tony’s on-screen sister for 37 years, Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer).

Each moment is very sweet and seeing some clips through the years is always a treat.  The clip with Jackie was Tony’s first GH appearance ever.

Watch and listen to what Jackie, Kin, and Maurice had to share about working with Tony after the jump, and then let us know what you thoughts of the clips and the sentiments they shared.

Remember Luke’s first appearance on #GH? Jacklyn Zeman does. Watch the clip and her #FarewellTony message.

Maybe, Jim. Was there not a movie entitled, “The Two Jakes”?

Yesterday was the first time I had ever seen little Aiden. It was a surprise since I had completely forgotten Liz had another child. Aiden is such a cutie pie. I wanted to eat him up. He’s so little. That’s a good question, jimh. What kind of child has emerged after spending years in Helena’s clutches and ‘tutelage’? As far as Jake’s memory? A couple of us actually thought that it is a logical possibility for little Jake to nudge Jake’s memory along. We have already been made aware of his cloudy/vague flashbacks with the toy motorcycles….so, it is possible,… Read more »

Truly enjoying GH ! 30 million viewers watched their wedding in 1981 and everyone who loved that era should be tuning in now for the next two weeks. Definitely worth the watching !

Mash had 30 million every week and Rhoda’s wedding had 57 million lol .. I read Did you know; Luke and Laura followed Cliff and Nina’s extravaganza wedding, by a year.. Cliff and Nina wed; September 3, 1980 Luke and Laura wed; November 17, 1981 AMC- Nina and Cliff wedding; watching it on YouTube, it was much better than Luke and Laura’s, by far.. There are no numbers as to how many watched but I’d bet it was a notable number.. ”Cliff and Nina’s romance enthralled viewers. Chicago Sun-Times, stated, “Nina’s wedding to Cliff Warner is regarded as one of… Read more »

You MUST have something better to do than sit around and find new and inventive ways to rag on Genie Francis and her Laura. Lmao. But clearly not. We all get it and have read it ad nauseum…you dont like Genie and you dont like Laura. Can we move on now?

I loved Nina and Cliff’s wedding complete with the horse drawn carriage and the domineering, dastardly father-in-law Palmer Cortlandt, who seemed to harbor a borderline incestuous obsessive for his daughter, Nina. Palmer Cortlandt, may be one of the most emotionally complex psychological characters in daytime history. And what made him so fascinating is that there was an element of realism injected into his psychological make up. Plus, James Mitchell was an utter gem of an actor. They don’t write them like that anymore, do they? But I regress, er, I mean digress. To your point about Nina and Cliff’s wedding… Read more »

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
