Geary opens up about Elizabeth Taylor romance

Feb 10, 2011 | 4:00am EST

The actor, who has played Luke Spencer on daily drama General Hospital since 1978, was prepared to take the affair with him to the grave - until Taylor herself confessed all.

Appearing on Wednesday's (09Feb11) Oprah Winfrey Show, the actor said, "For many years I kept it quiet because it's not a gentlemanly thing to talk about, and then Elizabeth spoke about it in an interview... a few years ago and after that I thought, 'OK.'

"I spent a couple of years with her and it was a wonderful time in my life."

Geary reveals the romance started when Taylor was a guest on his TV soap in 1981: "She liked the soap and she liked Luke and then she sort of liked me when she found out who I was."
