Duke and Anna were married in a LAVISH Scottish ceremony in 1987. Ian Buchanan played Duke from 1986-89, then was recast with a different face (he said it was witness protection surgery). Duke owned "Duke's Club" which was a money laundering place for--the mob. She fell for the mob guy while being co-police chief. He worked for Victor Jerome. There's a lot more on Wikipedia, just search "Duke Lavery"
From an interview excerpt from We Love Soaps...read it all!
We Love Soaps: Why do you think Duke and Anna were such a huge phenomenon?
I think we are very similar, which is kind of weird. We trusted each other immediately. We worked really well together. We were there for each other, which was great. She was very supportive of me, she wanted me to get the job. She was pretty amazing. We were instantly, and still are, the closest of friends. I think people related to that. And we were British. They liked the dark hair, the unibrow. Finola always said, “If Duke and Anna ever had a child, it would have been an eyebrow.”
I think Ewan looks just like Duke, btw! That's an observation--not a promise. Look at Anna's HAIR UP THERE!! LMAO!
THERE'S AN ANNA AND DUKE site on the net! click that link!
By the way..we don't know yet if Duke saved Robin by taking her-- or is the ultimate villain in this. He could just be a part of a bigger arc. Just saying hang on-- !
