Anthony Geary spent almost 40 years as Luke Spencer on 'General Hospital'. he is now happily retired and living a fun life in a new place. After winning eight Daytime Emmy Awards and bringing the show to a great rating peak, Geary left the show for a much quieter life. With much more acting credits to his name, Soaps In Depth caught up with the talented actor who currently resides in Amsterdam for their SID General Hospital 55th Anniversary Special to speak about his 'GH' past and his current life as the show's 55th-anniversary approaches.


First off Geary ensured to point out the facts about his life now as he shared, "Life is good. I have no complaints. I live in my favorite city in the world. I am really enjoying my retirement, all the extra time and room it’s given me. It feels great to be master of my fate. Since I found Amsterdam in the early ’90s, I knew I wanted to live here full-time. The lifestyle of this city fits me like no other. The last 20 years or more on GH, I was fortunate enough to have a job that allowed me the luxury of preparing my retirement. I loved my job and worked with a very specific goal in mind. Not another Emmy or a role in a big movie. It was to buy a home in the city where I have always felt the most at home. I finished my years on GH prepared to walk into my future. The best part of that was, for the first time in my life, my future had nothing to do with my work or my ambition. Not just an actor anymore, I retired to reinventing myself as an expat living in Europe. What that means is out there waiting for me to find."

As for a GH return, Geary noted, "I don’t rule anything out. One of the things I’ve learned from being on the planet 70 years is to say ”I don’t do this or I don’t do that” just limits your options. I try to keep an open mind about everything. I don’t need to work, gratefully, so if I choose to do anything now, it will be for art, interest, love or as a favor for a friend. Not to have to make a living scratching and clawing your way to the top is such a relief. I think maybe I did that more than I realized. At the time you’re doing it, you don’t realize what a battle you’re waging, how exhausting it is, and how much damage you can do. I look back on it all now and wonder how necessary was it for me to be so combative." While he was not necessarily indicating a return to the ABC daytime drama he did share “Never say never. Whatever makes the people happy."


The former GH star then dished on his current life and what he's up to these days stating, "Last year, I took a couple of classes at the University Of Amsterdam, first graduating class 1632. It convinced me I need to speak a higher level of Dutch than I had so far spoken. I just finished a 10-week intensive language class. I will begin the next level in a few months. I love going to school. Homework is a drag, as it always was. An essay written in Dutch comparing Mark Twain to Eduard Douwes Dekker can really mess up your evening. (Laughs.) But I have learned a lot and feel really good about it. I’ll tell you a quick story. My Dutch language teacher doesn’t speak English very well. He speaks three other languages fluently, but none of them was English. His classes were taught strictly in Dutch. One of our exercises was he would hand out sheets of paper with dialogues written on them. Different situations where each student played a part. We pretended to go to a birthday party or a movie theater, etc. So, in one of the early exercises, I played a theater manager who came into the movie to tell certain audience members to be quiet. Other students played irate movie patrons and the rude audience members. My character ended up throwing the rowdies out of the theater. We did the little scene, all in Dutch, and at the end, our teacher turned to me and said, “Vas you en actor?” (Chuckles.) I shyly admitted to the condition. He said, “I can tell.” Later, he told me I seemed to learn quicker when I emotionally connect to the sentence or the thought behind the sentence. Which is, I guess, an interesting insight into how my mind works and is, basically, the essence of acting. So, yeah, I love to learn new things. And the language of my adopted country is a joy to speak. It’s goofy and delightful, and it makes me smile."
