15 July 13th, 2015 Farewell Tony Geary Messages & Videos: GH’s Jackie Zeman, Kin Shriner and Maurice Benard Reminisce!


As General Hospital and its fans get ready to say goodbye to Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) on the July 27th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, GH is releasing some little video gems of retrospective clips of scenes with Tony’s co-stars and his cast mates sharing their sentiments about working alongside of him.

First up was Tony’s longtime on-screen nemesis Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) followed by Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) in a very touching tribute, and most recently late last week, Tony’s on-screen sister for 37 years, Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer).

Each moment is very sweet and seeing some clips through the years is always a treat.  The clip with Jackie was Tony’s first GH appearance ever.

Watch and listen to what Jackie, Kin, and Maurice had to share about working with Tony after the jump, and then let us know what you thoughts of the clips and the sentiments they shared.

Remember Luke’s first appearance on #GH? Jacklyn Zeman does. Watch the clip and her #FarewellTony message.

    wow just wow ..
    There is lots of love out there for Tony.

    Tony will be back…to collect his next emmy…finally, Monica!…will Cameron and Aiden be spooked by little Jake…i just wonder if one can trust the kid…will he be good or bad…Liz needs to check his head for 666!!!


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Will it be little Jake that triggers Jason’s memories to return???


    Harry replied

    Maybe, Jim. Was there not a movie entitled, “The Two Jakes”?

    CeeCee replied

    Yesterday was the first time I had ever seen little Aiden. It was a surprise since I had completely forgotten Liz had another child. Aiden is such a cutie pie. I wanted to eat him up. He’s so little.
    That’s a good question, jimh. What kind of child has emerged after spending years in Helena’s clutches and ‘tutelage’?
    As far as Jake’s memory? A couple of us actually thought that it is a logical possibility for little Jake to nudge Jake’s memory along. We have already been made aware of his cloudy/vague flashbacks with the toy motorcycles….so, it is possible, albeit Shay feels it will be Sam’s very sexy body that will do the trick…LOL.


    CeeCee replied

    Yes, Harry. There is a movie, THE TWO JAKES, starring Jack Nicholson. Imagine that!!

    Great old pictures, wasn’t watching then, came on about the time of Wedding to Laura.


    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Ina.
    I believe the movie came out in 1990.

    Truly enjoying GH ! 30 million viewers watched their wedding in 1981 and everyone who loved that era should be tuning in now for the next two weeks. Definitely worth the watching !


    su0000 replied

    Mash had 30 million every week and Rhoda’s wedding had 57 million lol ..
    I read
    Did you know;
    Luke and Laura followed Cliff and Nina’s extravaganza wedding, by a year..

    Cliff and Nina wed; September 3, 1980
    Luke and Laura wed; November 17, 1981

    AMC- Nina and Cliff wedding; watching it on YouTube, it was much better than Luke and Laura’s, by far..
    There are no numbers as to how many watched but I’d bet it was a notable number..
    ”Cliff and Nina’s romance enthralled viewers. Chicago Sun-Times, stated, “Nina’s wedding to Cliff Warner is regarded as one of daytime’s most-watched moments and regarded as one of daytime’s most-watched moments.”

    I am really enjoying the Luke exit story but not Tony’s leaving :(
    I know the very last scene will be a heartache ..

    (no more Tony/Luke) I do not like that..


    Aden replied

    You MUST have something better to do than sit around and find new and inventive ways to rag on Genie Francis and her Laura. Lmao. But clearly not. We all get it and have read it ad nauseum…you dont like Genie and you dont like Laura. Can we move on now?

    Harry replied

    I loved Nina and Cliff’s wedding complete with the horse drawn carriage and the domineering, dastardly father-in-law Palmer Cortlandt, who seemed to harbor a borderline incestuous obsessive for his daughter, Nina.
    Palmer Cortlandt, may be one of the most emotionally complex psychological characters in daytime history. And what made him so fascinating is that there was an element of realism injected into his psychological make up. Plus, James Mitchell was an utter gem of an actor. They don’t write them like that anymore, do they? But I regress, er, I mean digress. To your point about Nina and Cliff’s wedding being better than Luke and Laura’s? I don’t agree. Both weddings were equally wonderful in their own way–they were just totally different from each other.

    Sweet message from Maurice. 3 short videos is all we get??


  6. tskyent says:

    So going to Miss Tony!!


  7. Harry says:

    I am going to miss that ole bastard.
    I am being reminded as of late as to why I fell in love with Luke Spencer in the first place.
