After all the goodbyes, tributes, and the final episode of Anthony Geary’s (Luke Spencer) on Monday’s General Hospital, there is still another twist that the eight-time Daytime Emmy winner leaves behind.
In a feature that ran this morning from Lynette Rice at Entertainment Weekly, Geary informed her that he would still be open to the possibility of returning to GH, if it was the perfect storm for him when he related: “If the story is interesting to me and it works out, I may come back to the show for six weeks or so.”
General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini echoed Tony’s sentiments by sharing: “It’s not a question of him being able to stay or come back. It just has to be a good enough, solid to bring (him back).”
Contrary to popular belief, the iconic star says he is not completely over playing his Port Charles alter-ego: “I’m not sick of Luke. He’s an infinitely fascinating character.” Geary went on to elaborate saying, “I really don’t think we have exhausted what he can do. It depends on the writers and how far they want to look. We had just been repeating ourselves for a while. I had become a dad, a grandfather. There was no way I was going to stick around to become just another guy. If they come up with something, a twist, I would come for it.”
So, what do you think about hearing what Tony had to say? Would you like to see him return at some point? If you were writing a story for Luke to come back, what would it be? Or, do you think you just leave the character off the canvas for good and never to have him return ? Comment below!
