LOS ANGELES, May 8 (UPI) -- Eight-time Emmy Award-winner Anthony Geary is leaving General Hospital after nearly three decades of playing beloved scoundrel Luke Spencer on the soap opera.
TV Insider reported the 67-year-old actor will be seen on the series until around July. He first played the role of Luke 1978-84. He left the show, then returned in 1991 as Luke's cousin Bill Eckert. As a result of fan demand, Bill was killed off of the program and Luke returned in 1993 and has been a fixture in fictional Port Charles, N.Y., since.
