Report---MAJOR GH actor in salary dispute? EXIT?

Postby BringBackStarr » Thu Oct 24, 2013 4:26 pm

Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer) has reportedly been asked to take a pay SLASH. The report claims he now makes 1.5 million dollars a year for his 15-18 weeks a year. Reportedly (alledgedly) FV has asked him to take a cut to 750,000 dollars a year. The story goes on to mention Maurice Benard----Saying MB doesnt make nearly what AG makes, and he works full time. If the show and actor don't come to terms, a recast is unlikely, leaving the only option to be Lukes passing. The story reports that AG doesnt need the money and OK with exiting over a pay slash. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

I like Luke, but I am okay if he goes. He is not on the show often enough to make a huge difference.

If he goes, I will miss his relationship with Spanky. I can't remember the last time he had an amazing scene. I guess it was when he was on the lam with Laura whilst looking for Lulu.

The Globe? The tabloid who's front page is usually reserved for an exclusive about how someone is really an alien from outer space? Oh my! Is this where your secret sources are from? :]

First of all----The Globe does not do "alien" stories. Second, It was a full page spread. :))

Oh then that must have been Rupert Murdock on the cover that I had mistaken for an alien. I do know of one person who would purchase the Globe, but he didn't read it just used it for TP.

I also saw the report on Wendy today. I also agree with Wendy, when you look at what people make on TV today, it's hard to believe a main character like Luke after 35 years was only getting paid 1.5M. Now to me that is a lot of money but in "Starland" it is a slap in the face. But Luke is now 66 years old and has a lot of time off. I would hate to see him go because GH needs the veterans. So I guess we will wait and see what his decision is.

Awwwwww....Thanks for having my back. ;)

I have mixed feelings about it. You know, we see Luke on these summer write offs (for silly reasons), and I notice the fans get frustrated because it slows storylines down. There IS something to be said for going out on YOUR terms (like Susan Flannery---Stephanie on BB did). I do like Luke---But I also cringe at his story exits... :~

If Susan Lucci took a paycut to keep AMC on the air then AG needs to bite the bullet, because he only works 18 weeks out of the year! >(

The Globe is highly regarded for its investigative reporting. They were in the forefront of exposing liberal icon John Edwards' deceits.
