When GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Anthony Geary (Luke), Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky) and Nathan Parsons (ex-Ethan) recently got together for the first time since the latter two departed several months ago, they had quite a lot to say to one another! Soaps In Depth sat down with the Daytime Emmy nominees at the family reunion for a little chat… that actually turned into quite a long conversation! In fact, they had so much to talk about, we couldn’t fit it all into the magazine! Luckily for you, , we’re posting the rest of our Q&A with the father/sons trio right here on abc.soapsindepth.com! So get your fill now, and then be sure to pick up the June 11 issue of Soaps In Depth for more of our exclusive interview with the guys!
As Good As It Gets
Aside from the episodes that were submitted for Emmy consideration, were there other scenes that you all saw of each other throughout the year that weren’t submitted?
Jonathan: That’s an interesting question. The show I submitted had the scenes after Lucky found out that Luke hit Jake, so it was basically six or seven scenes locked in a room with Tony. They felt the strongest for a number of different reason, but it was tough because there were a lot of dynamic storylines that they gave us last year.
Nathan: The intervention story was the first thing that came to mind, of course. All my meatiest work was actually from this year, but I picked a couple shows that I thought would work. I looked at them and wasn’t really happy, but when I showed them to Tony, he said, “You know, I was looking at another show and I thought you were really good in it.” So I watched it, and that’s the show I submitted.
Jonathan: For Tony, the intervention was obviously a great show, for many reasons. But one of the shows that stuck out to me was the scenes at the bordello. There was something so tragic and grandiose — what Tony was doing in the episode was so incredible. It was heart-wrenching and disturbing and honest. It reminded me of Amadeus in a way. Tony was on another planet.
Tony: Every time I work with these guys, there are standout scenes. They’ve each surprised and amazed me with alarming consistency.
