Daytime legend and seven-time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer) will be the very special guest on this Monday’s episode of The View at 11AMEST on ABC.  Monday is the actual date of the 50th anniversary of the iconic ABC daytime drama, having debuted on April 1, 1963!

Geary is expected to discuss his career portraying the wonderfully unpredictable Luke Spencer since 1978, and what to expect all this week on General Hospital in celebration of the show’s Golden Anniversary.

Honoring 50 historic years on ABC, General Hospital is the longest running scripted drama currently in production and the third longest-running drama in American television history. To mark the show’s Golden Anniversary, General Hospital reprises the immensely popular Nurses’ Ball, a fictional charity event complete with musical performances from the illustrious citizens of Port Charles dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.

OK GH fans, what has been your favorite amount of Luke Spencer’s and performance of Anthony Geary over the decades he has been on the show? Weigh-in!

Yea, Jim. It seems like quite a few “Llanview” or character named posters are hoping for the cancellation of GH. It is as if they don’t want it on the air because theirs isn’t. Sad. I don’t begrudge them their show. Shame they don’t have respect for ours.

Agree whole heartedly. I hope GH fans don’t feel they are out of the woods. I would not be surprised if GH was gone by the end of the year.

Are you wishing for it to be cancelled so you can say say u was right? The network already renewed it til 2014 so it wont be off this year. And if it does get cancelled it wont be the end of the world for me. I just enjoy it while its still here and i enjoy everything else i like while im still here.

@llanview717. you should spend more time worry about your OLTL2. Just because it got resurrected doesn’t mean it won’t die again.

Not at all. I do not wish GH to be cancelled. I have great respect for the cast and crew and commend them for soldiering on over the last few years. I don’t have faith the network.

I don’t watch the View. I will watch clips of his visit if I can. I am happy that ABC is promoting GH and recognizing Tony’s years of contribution to GH’s success!!! He is an awesome talent and we are lucky to have him on GH!!! I love GH and want it to have 50 more years!!! Congratulations Tony for getting the chance to review your years on the best soap!!!

I love Luke too. Don’t watch the view but I surely will tune in to watch this time for Tony.

I love GH . I have 3 favorites of this show. Luke, Laura, & Jason. I really hated to see Steve Burton go!! I keep hoping they will hire another actor to play Jason Morgan. Here he was suppose to be the tough mob hitman for Sonny, so how could the toughest hitman die from 1 shot (not even in the heart), and a roll into the harbour? Jason was too tough to die from that so bring another actor in to play that character. Back to Luke, his parts with Laura & them being on the run were my most favorite parts out of the whole 50 years.

Technically speaking, “General Hospital” is only the SECOND longest running scripted drama, or the longest running AMERICAN scripted drama. “Coronation Street” holds the global record, having begun in 1960. GH has them, however in episodes!

i have loved the character of luke since he stepped foot in port charles – i was so hoping they would have more than one cast member on to celebrate the 50th anniversary like cbs did for y&r’s 40th………………………………

Fav Luke Spencer moment was when he typed, ” Ice Princess” on computer to unlock weather machine and he twirled all the way around in the air. Thanks for 50 GH!!!

I love all Tony’s scenes with his acting soulmate,
Genie Francis. They are magic together!

Nancy

Anything where Luke’s love for Laura is apparent – I love when he’s passionate, funny, jealous, protective, even angry. He has always been able to show a whole range of emotion when he (Tony) works with Genie. Their magic is unsurpassed.

Love all of you on GH but me getting older and love some of the oldies who are still going strong. I am 50 yrs old now and have watched GH all my life. I wish all of you best of luck and thanks for all the good times GH has given me,……(could have left Katie C off the show though) Roll Tide lol

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
