In General Hospital, Anthony played the character, Luke Spencer. Luke is the middle child of the late, Tim Spencer and his late wife, Lena Spencer.

He was born and raised in Port Charles, New York to a low-income family near the docks. He was street-smart and would constantly defend his sister Bobbie when they were growing up.
