Luke Spencer has been described as the most popular character in soap opera history. One critic said: “Geary’s individualism, uniqueness and awesome range is the most notable in Daytime (television) history,” a statement that is typical of the actor’s reviews. In 2012 Geary broke his own record as the most honored actor in Daytime Emmy history when he won his seventh Outstanding Lead Actor Award for his portrayal of Luke Spencer. He won his first Emmy Award as Outstanding Lead Actor in 1981 and received his additional Emmy Awards in 1999, 2000, 2004, 2006 and 2008. Equally impressive, he holds nominations in 1980, 1982, 1996, 1997, 2003, 2007 and 2009.

Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) returned to GH to participate in Luke’s exit.  Check back daily for new Luke Spencer clips HERE!
