Daytime Emmy nominations were announced this morning live on “The View” and there is undoubtedly one excited actor from General Hospital, the man behind Luke Spencer of course – Tony Geary. Not only did he garner GH’s only performing nomination this year, but if he wins he’ll tie for the most Emmy wins for one single character! (OLTL’s
Erika Slezak has won six.)

Tony introduced the world to the untouchable Luke Spencer in 1978 and to this day there’s no character quite like the one he and GH have created. (From what we at Soaps.com understand through various interviews with fellow cast mates, Tony has a lot of freedom to put his own spin on his character’s dialogue and perhaps that is why Luke is so…well…”Luke”.)
