    This woman is incredible! How many actors do you find that are this open and expressive? I want her to have everything she desires for Laura. She has created the best character ever! Thanks for doing this interview with her.

    I am sure every fan would love to see the Paley center GH. As for genie welcome back. Hope she is not stuck all the on screen time with Tony G. he looks like someone gave him something sour to eat. He doesn’t look happy and he said he wanted to be with Spanky pants. He may but we who watch the show don’t care if he doesn’t want to be there retire and give someone else a chance at a job. Genie we are thrilled to see and I want to see her feisty and strong.

    wow it is all perception..i may add YOUR perception..Tony Geary never said anything about being unhappy so YOU DON’T KNOW what he thinks. And if now he wants to play something else aside from Luke and Laura..it is his right, actors loved to be challenged not playing always the same thing even if they are successful in it like Tony was with this Luke and Laura pairing with Genie Francis. Both actors can play something else, not a big deal..as for the new Lulu and Cassadine story Tony showed up even if the material was very campy and quite weak actually (come on all these monologues whereas it was pretty obvious that Lulu was not dead at all..even Marcy Rylan did not play a ‘dead’ Lulu, during all the scenes she did flucker non stop her eyes..it was quite funny actually..lol)

    Also fun interview : i am happily surprised to hear that Genie Francis was ‘thrilled’ to see again RKK (HOT hot devilish Stavros..he aged so well, even more gorgeous than before..) because he doesn’t have a good reputation poor guy..but he is talented and again..gorgeous, would be great to see him again on Soapland..

    Michael… you must do something else with Genie!!! I think she really enjoyed speaking with you! I watched he watch you and some of the others when she walked behind you! Maybe a podcast or a hangout…?

    I hope it is true that Genie finished contract negotiations and will be back on GH in Oct. Keep Tracy away from Luke! It’s all Luke and Laura now. Laura has suffered enough and deserves to be happy with Luke.
    And we fans deserve to be happy with the L and L reunion after all this time of waiting and hoping. Contrary to what people say, the chemistry has not diminished (Genie has worked so hard to keep it there!)–and Luke and Laura together does not in any way mean “dullsville” or any such nonsense. The two actor, Genie and Tony, could just look in each other’s eyes and recite the phone book and the scene would smolder!

    I say this from the bottom of my heart,I remember genie on GH b4 there was a Luke and Laura,they met on the 3/30/1979 episode,say day 3 mile island was going on in Pennsylvania.
    this woman is such a incredible actress,she lights up the screen she is so sincere and is as pretty today as she was in 1978.
    soaps were dying in the 70,s were each rating point was only worth 778’000 homes there were no teenagers on soaps that were the forefront of the show.her story pre Luke brought the show from a 7.2 to a 9.3 when she married Luke and all the ABC soaps went up as well even the edge of night which was only available in 80 percent of the country in 1979.she is a great actress cannot believe what Jill did to her at the y and r ‘she is brought on the show by request ‘is nominated by her piers after only 1 year at the show 4 a academy award and she is the first person Jill lets go from the show miss her on the show think the industry has treated her horrible and the recent spike in ratings could be from lots of snow storms on the east coast,tv viewing always go up when people are stuck in there homes because of bad weather.I miss her on tv’but daytime tv does not deserve her,and I would like to thank Michael fairman of the kind words u said about her when interviewed on TVGN,I have so much more to say,but I cant time 2 long :) I think I AM going to buy 1 of those voice activated typing things.thank u so much for taking the time 2 read this…..

    p.s. the read lines are from my spell check,i cannot seem 2 get read of them,sorry,thank you 4 your time…..
