Geary, Jackson & Parsons Talk Unfinished Business for GH's Spencer Clan & Their Daytime Emmy Noms!

In a great sit-down chat via ABC Soaps In Depth with the three Spencer men of Port Charles; Tony Geary (Luke), Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) and Nathan Parsons (Ex-Ethan), the Daytime Emmy nominated actors from General Hospital talk about their on and off screen relationships. Plus, helping each other pick their Daytime Emmy reels, which landed each of them in the three main acting categories heading into the Daytime Emmy telecast on HLN on June 23rd!

But perhaps what was most interesting, was the quick banter back and forth between the threesome when they were posed the question, what unfinished business is there for you and your characters that needs to be addressed on GH?   And here is what the talented trio had to say!

Nathan: For Ethan, I think I need to kill Helena. A little bit of revenge.
Tony: Give it up, son. She can’t be killed. As long as there’s a drop of blood to suck, Helena’s immortal.
Nathan: I think Ethan should go on a killing spree, personally. But that’s just me. So, that’s unfinished business. Ethan could just become The Cleaner.
Jonathan: And well, for Lucky, he did leave his kids at Christmas…
Nathan: Jerk!
Jonathan: So, I’d say there is some unfinished business there! And Nathan and I never got to do a con together.
Nathan: I know!
Jonathan: That was the big tragedy for me. Luke, Lucky and Ethan, and Lulu, should have done some big awesome con.

Tony: I agree. That was a major production mistake, and a terrible waste. The whole family was primed for a great adventure together. The audience would have loved it, and it would have been completely consistent with our family history. Sometimes they miss the most obvious story ideas. It’s frustrating.
Nathan: Yeah, we didn’t get to do that; they never went there. And then by the end, Ethan gets offered to go steal diamonds with Luke and he’s like, ‘Oh no, no. I’m good.’

Jonathan: Yes, Lucky would do the same thing, just turn down Luke’s offers to work together.
Nathan: I’m like ‘who is this person?’ That’s not the character I created.
Tony: Luke has profound unfinished business with both his sons. Lucky just disappeared out of his father’s life the same way Luke had done so many times. Things were left very bitterly between them. There is still the ghost of Jake binding them to each other’s pain. It would be wonderful to have reconciliation or some kind of resolution there. And, as for Ethan, Luke sent him away with a big lie to carry. It was such a selfish thing to do, saving his friend’s life (Robert Scorpio) by sacrificing his relationship with his youngest son. There is a lot of unfinished business here. There isn’t one day at I work that I don’t think about having lost both of my sons. It helps me keep in touch with what a broken bird this Luke Spencer is.

So soapers, what would you like to still see happen to the Spencer Clan of Ethan, Lucky, Luke and Lulu?  Let us know!

I hear rumblings that they are working to recast Ethan to cause problems between Luke and Anna and as a possible love interest for Kristina. That stinks, but I think the character was very good for GH.

Sorry Nathan left, but glad to see he found greener pastures.

Is Nathan still under contract? I’d heard he wasn’t going to be renewed.

I want to see Lucky stay far away from Elizabeth. That relationship is toxic.

It is a shame that Luke hasn’t seen his sons. I was never a fan of Ethan being his; I wanted him to be Robert’s kid.

It would be fun to see the whole family do a con but now that Lulu’s married to Dante, I don’t see her getting on board.

Lisa, Nathan was fired from the show and is no longer under contract nor on recurring status with GH! Ethan is GONE! 🙁

Nathan, wasn’t fired from the show. He told the previous regime he was leaving when his contract was up and he did just that. Now that he is on another show, I doubt he will come back. I have no problem with giving Luke another son, but to make Holly the mother is just wrong. She never would have cheated on Robert and the writers totally messed up Robert & Holly along with Luke & Laura history to create Ethan. That is sooooo not what the fans wanted to see! Love all three of these guys and I would love… Read more »

Aww, if and when GH gets the ax, I would like to see Jonathan Jackson come back and reunite his Lucky with Rebecca Herbst’s Liz. I don’t think they are toxix – I think the writing for them has been toxic. Having Liz sleep with Nikolas was just dreadful. They can fix them and have them ride off into the sunset together. After all, they share Cameron plus they are the bio parents of Aidan.

I would surely love to see the “Spencer Clan” in a con of some sorts. and it’s true what they are saying, they writers surely missed that boat !! I could see them coming back, Eathan ( he’s just keeping Robet busy ) as for Lucky, well his last scene was him looking up at someone at the church or grave site. Always wondered who that was? as for Lulu, being her charector did a shift, I can see her totally being on board with what her family does. Who knows maybe they can be to ones to solve this… Read more »

I refused to believe that Ethan is Luke’s. That was such a slap in the face to R&H fans.

The whole Spencer family being part of a con would be a great use of history and showcase the talents of my favorite family on GH. I wish Jonathan and Nathan the best in their new projects, but it will always be my wish to have the original Spencer boys back.

I could care less about Luke, Nathan, or Lucky. GH really hit an all time low by destroying the characters of Robert and Holly in order to make Luke Spencer once again the hero. Pairing Luke and Anna is downright ridiculous to me. I am sick of Anna and Luke. Robert and Holly should be given a story and reunited! Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms both look great. Emma is still as beautiful and sexy as she was in her heyday, and Tristan is still extremely sexy. Let us see this couple have a believable storyline.

The unfinished business is to undo the damage to GH’s first two super couples and say the CON is that Luke and Holly lied about cheating on their spouses. Ethan is Robert’s son.

Back in the day, Luke was not known to be a con artist, it was only after Holly came along when Luke’s character changed. actually (cousin) Bill was more of the con. Luke was all about Power and prestige and thriving on the danger.

Also Bobbie is totally needed, and is a missing void. It used to Bobbie and Luke was her Tonto. I would like to see Bobbie involved.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
