Consider the source here, but this item that has been making its way around the Internet all weekend. According to a report in The Globe in their October 29th print edition, the tabloid is reporting that General Hospital is insisting that seven-time Daytime Emmy winner Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) take a 50% pay cut. To which, Geary is saying if that is the case, he would leave the ABC soap opera.
In a piece on this … they go on to say, “From the network’s stand point, actors that work year round and enjoy non-stop front burner storylines don’t make that kind of money while sacrificing other areas of their lives for the sake of the show. Tony is insisting that if he leaves he also wants his character killed off to remind the audience that even beloved characters do die in daytime. Needless to say the network would rather leave the door open for the possibility of Tony’s return down the road.”
Is this just a morphed pieced by The Globe on the interview given by Geary to TV Guide Magazine, where he discusses if he was ever killed off the show and it is taken out of context? Do you think Geary was asked to take a pay cut? Thoughts? Comment below!
