As we get closer to daytime's biggest night, taking place on Sunday, May 1, the industry is abuzz today over which actors were submitted for a pre-nomination for the "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). With at least two actors per show for each category (exception being Supporting Actress) several of daytime television's biggest and brightest stars are looking to vie for the coveted trophy that celebrates their hard work during calendar year 2015.
While it had long been rumored, the day has finally come where fans will soon get ready to say goodbye to Luke Spencer on ABC's "General Hospital." In an interview with TV Insider's Michael Logan, portrayer Anthony Geary explains why he chose the leave the series, what viewers might expect for Luke's final chapter, reuniting with Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) at the recent Daytime Emmy Awards, and again on screen in the coming weeks and months ahead, and much more.

The reunion of Luke and Laura Spencer on Sunday night's "Daytime Emmys" telecast appears to have been just a tease of what's to come on ABC's "General Hospital." The network announced today that Genie Francis will once again reprise her iconic role as the matriarch of the Spencer clan alongside eight time Emmy winner, Anthony Geary.

Should ‘General Hospital’ Kill Off Duke Lavery?

When news first hit the web in August 2012 of Duke Lavery being very much alive on ABC's "General Hospital," it not only became a trending topic in the United States on Twitter, but also worldwide. Nearly three years later, it looks like the character will be heading back to the grave as portrayer Ian Buchanan is said to have recently learned that the writers have plans to off the character once more. It would be a huge mistake on their part as it would defeat the entire purpose of resurrecting the character in the first place.
When history is re-created to tell a new tale on a daytime soap opera some of us can't help but groan at the mere thought, especially when history is mined by use of re-created flashback scenes. Sure, we love that stories continue day-to-day, but ultimately we don't expect it to truly have much impact in today's storied world. As "General Hospital" celebrated its 52nd anniversary earlier today, with re-created flashback scenes with several of its current cast playing yesterday's important characters, one can't help but be amazed at how far we've come in our quest for drama on screen, be it scripted or reality. The lack of shootouts, sex scenes, romantic triangles, catfights, or whatever passes for drama today, took a back seat to character driven story.
As previously reported, Brandon Barash is reprising the role of Johnny Zacchara on ABC's "General Hospital" and it looks like he's set to mark his return this week when Johnny comes face to face with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), at least that's how it appears in the promo for this week's worth of episodes. "Wait. What? Johnny's back this week?!" tweeted Barash shortly after the promo was released.
After a six-month absence, Daytime Emmy Award winner Anthony Geary returned to the set of ABC's "General Hospital" earlier this month to once again film scenes as Luke Spencer, and to hopefully finally conclude the story of just who Fluke (aka: Fake Luke) truly is. This week the day may finally come as the newly released promo (published on TV Guide) promises that the real Luke is back with a vengeance after being locked away by a brutal impostor.
