Anthony Geary
  • Up until Geary's groundbreaking contracts, soap operas kept their stars very close to the vest, but Geary wanted time off, and he got it
  • A few years back, when he won another Daytime Emmy for his acting, he made his feelings known, that he wasn't happy that his co-star, Genie Francis, had been left out of the process entirely

      Anthony Geary is someone I’m just not sure about. He’s known chiefly for his landmark role of Luke Spencer on General Hospital, the rapist who has oddly become some weird kind of hero. He’s also one of the first daytime actors who was given an enormous salary and time off to do other things. Up until Geary’s groundbreaking contracts, soap operas kept their stars very close to the vest, but Geary wanted time off, and he got it. It was

      that, or lose him. He’d walk, and everyone knew it.

      Anthony Geary is a strange sort. He liked to toy with fans back in the hey day of the 1980’s when the show was so very popular. I remember once he just didn’t even want to be fully seen. He kept sticking his head out of the door to see if fans were still hanging outside the gates. Keep in mind, there were two gates the stars and staff ...


      • could use, so he had options. It was almost like he was playing a game with us — would he come out, or not. He didn’t hide that it was him, sticking his head out of the door. I was never sure what to make of that.

        A few years back, when he won another Daytime Emmy for his acting, he made his feelings known, that he wasn’t happy that his co-star, Genie Francis, had been left out of the process

        entirely. He’s always been very supportive of his co-stars.

        Anthony Geary has a long line of TV and stage work. He likes to be unique and refuses to accept a role just to get paid. In ways, he’s a rebel. He’s made a mark on daytime television that few others have. That, no one can deny. Still, I’m just not sure about the man, especially his treatment of fans, at least back in the day when I was out there, watching.
