The residents of Port Charles came together this past weekend with their adoring and passionate fans from all over the world to celebrate the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, with a stellar line-up  of separate cast member events, the Kickoff reception on Thursday, the Main Cast Luncheon on Saturday, and the blast from the past, Past Cast Stars reunion event on Sunday.

Many of your favorites showed up for the main event on Saturday including: Jason Thompson, Blake Gibbons, Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash, Kirsten Storms, Teresa Castillo, Kelly Thiebaud, Parry Shen, Bryan Craig, Chad Duell, Kristen Alderson, Drew Cheetwood, Emma Samms, Kathleen Gati, Jimmy Deshler, Haley Pullos, John J. York, Lynn Herring, Michael Easton, Rebecca Herbst, Robin Mattson, Samantha Logan, Kin Shriner, Lisa LoCicero, Tequan Richmond, Laura Wright and more!

After the arrivals of the cast, General Hospital fans were delighted to see the  contingent from the ABC soap as they were announced one by one to their screaming fans, and then took part in a fun Q&A hosted once again this year by John. J. York with an assist by Bradford Anderson. Anderson roamed around the room to get fans to chime in on their thoughts and ask questions of their favorite stars.

A late, yet great, arrival to the proceedings was General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini who joined the cast on stage and made a very special ‘thank you’ on behalf of everyone for the audiences continued support of GH, and to relay that there is some exciting moments ahead in the months to come on upcoming episodes.   Following the ending of the Q&A, the stars manned their stations as they took time to sign autographs to an excited line-up of fans.  Upon inspection, we actually think Michael Easton (Silas Clay, pictured here) wins the award for longest line!

Now after the jump, view just some of the images from the GH Main Event arrivals.  Remember to view the gallery you can either view as a slideshow, or to go to the next group of images hit the NEXT GROUP icon to the left of the + sign! Let us know what you favorite part of GHFCW 2013 was if you attended? And if you were not able to attend,  who would you most want to meet in person  up close and personal?

I’d never been to a fan event before and was blown away by my first GHFCW. I met so many of the actors, Frank Valentini, and some amazing fellow fans. When lines were short, I got to have actual conversations with some of them, Parry Shen you rock!! The actors could not have been nicer, even at the events that went into the wee hours (Jason Thompson and Dominic Zamprogna stayed until almost 2am to make sure the last of us in line at their individual event got to meet them and still were smiling and thanked us for coming;… Read more »

That’s interesting…I was continually reading on twitter that John Reilly (aka Sean Donely) had the longest line!

I think I read that John Reilly may have had the longest line at the past cast fan event.

That you for posting the pictures and confirming the longest line issue. It really doesn’t matter to me because I would still like Michael Easton if he had the shortest line but some hateful fans are always tweeting the same nonsense that no one wants Michael Easton on the show simply because they don’t like him. Glad to know that alot of the fans were happy he was there. Granted they don’t represent all of GH fans but they do represent a sampling. If a large percentage of all of the GH fans at the fan club weekend are his… Read more »

I am in love with Michael Easton and have been for years. I know what you mean about what the horrible things people are saying. I also love GH no matter what. Frank and Ron are it for me and no I am not related. I have enjoyed watching their talent for many years. Really horrible some of the things that people are saying. I am enjoying the heck out of myself just watching.

Miss seeing one of the best actresses Kimberly McCullough. Patrick needs Robin and JT and Kimberly are amazing together . You cannot manufacture their chemistry. FCW not the same anymore and I want the real GH back not FV cheap version. Everything is so cheap and horrible writers from all soaps that went off the air is not a good thing.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
