    I can’t wait to see Emme as NuLuLu! I never liked Abby until Emme recently returned and I realized that her character had been written poorly. Selfish and catty. After seeing her as new & improved Abby and seeing her appearance in CSI, I think she will make a great NuLuLu.

    I loved her as Lizzie on GL. She really grounded the character which had turned into a spoiled brat. Rylan made Lizzie likable while maintaining true to the character. I cannot wait to see how she does with the Lulu role. JMB is a tough one to replace, but I am hoping Rylan can pull it off. I still see her as more of a Maxie type, but it is good for her to stretch her muscles in a different type of role. Too bad she has an awesome mother already because I loved her relationship with Beth Chamberlin on GL! Does Laura have a sister??? Lol, sorry I can’t help but put a plug in for Chamberlin… I miss her!

    Maybe Beth Chamberlin could arrive in Port Charles as a new character claiming that Lulu is HER long lost daughter…a girl named Lizzie?

    I think it may be her middle name. My question is, how do you pronounce it? Is it “Em” as in just the letter M? Or is it like “Emmy” just spelled strange?

    Her given name is Marcy Faith Behrens…in case you wanted to know.

    Looking forward to Lulu’s return in the body of Miss Rylan.

    I do hope she is not kept from her family and friends a la Robin. I think we need to resolve that baby storyline or give it a few twists and turns. With Lulu away, we do not get that.

    Maybe Maxie isnt carrying Spinnelis child? She could still be carrying Lulus and Dantes baby after all? Dr. Britchany couldve lied just to blackmail Maxie into helping her in her plot against Sabrina? This could also be another reason Olivia sees a dog…Brit is a bitch! And this could be the twist, im just saying.

    I can’t wait… she’s a great talent and while JMB will be missed… Emme is the best choice!!! She actually looks more like what their daughter would look like than JMB.

    Ms. Rylan is one lucky lady. She has been on three soaps and on each, she has played a legacy character in some of the most pivotal and dynamic families ever on soaps. On Guiding Light she was a Spaulding/Raines. On Young and the Restless, she was an Abbott/Newman. Now on GH she will be a Spencer. She has become the go-to girl when soaps need a successful recast. Any young blonde could play Lulu but Rylan will bring something special to the part. She is spunky and endearing without being grating. I wish her all the best in this new role.

    ehhh…. a soap fan ode to 3 decades for me… and 5 plus for the soaps…

    Welcome to GH .I loved her on Guiding Light..She is a talented actress, and I am sure she can carry the role. Julie wanted to leave so break a leg,and welcome to someone Emme who we know can carry the role.!

    I am so sad to see Julie leave! I love her in this role. I’ve never seen Emme before so I will be a hard sell. I’ve watched Julie since she first arrived and love her! Julie, Good luck in what you do in the future. You will be missed!

    Not impressed at all. She is not Lulu. She even looks 10 years older.

    shes only 2 to 3 years older than Julie Berman…i looked up her age on WIKI…

    Bri replied

    Not at all impressed. Looks too old and too fraile to be the daughter of Luke and Laura. Let’s hope it’s not a permanent replacement. It took 2 tries before they found the right replacement for Carly with Laura Wright.

    Amy replied

    I totally agree and I thought the same exact thing about taking a few tries just like it did to cast the right Carly. Let’s bring on the next Lulu. I don’t think this one is the right fit.

    I don’t like the new Lulu at all ugh!!!

    Kat replied

    I agree with Vana. Not the right fit. How many tries did it take to get Carly right. I LOVED Julie as LuLu. The new one is wrong. Nothing about her has any chemistry like lulu. I understand why they had “lulu” come back different but no-one holds a candle to Julie. That would be like trying to replace Steve Burton!!!!!! Julie was a fantastic actress with so much talent and personality. The new one is just Abbey to me from another soap…

    Stop judging Emme when shes only appeared in three episodes. Lets see if she grows into the characters first. She should look frail…she just had a traumatic kidnapping experience and was near death when found. Shes not too old…shes only 3 years older than Julie! Emme is 33. Laura is 50 and Luke is in his 60s…they are old enough to be Lulus parents!

    You are WAYYYYY too into make believe drama. The point is about chemistry. There isn’t any. When they finally cast the right Carly viewers knew immediately that she was the correct replacement for Braun.

    Im actually not certain i like them together yet…not all chemistry is immediately noticed…they need more scenes of lulu and dante together b4 i decide…some couples like Sabrina and Patrick took time to grow on me and i like them now…but we cant please everyone…thanks for the reply!

    This new Lulu is terrible with a capital T. It hurts to watch her act, all I have to say is Next!!!

    The new Lulu needs to go shopping and buy a personality. She is so dull. Cant they bribe and beg the old Lulu into coming back?l

    Emme may be a good actress but she doesn’t fit the role of LuLu!

    Im actually not certain if i like them together yet…not all chemistry is immediate. They need more scenes together. It took time for other couples to grow on me…like Patrick and Sabrina…now i like them together…but i guess theres no pleasing everyone. Thanks for the reply.

    I think the thing that is off about NuLulu is that she doesn’t bring any warmth to the character. She doesn’t have the right vibe for this role.

    I agree with the other comments comparing it to the miscast of Carly, before Laura Wright. I also agree that as soon as Laura Wright came in, you know she was a good fit for the character of Carly, in exactly the way that you knew the others weren’t.

    Same for NuLulu. Not a fit for this particular character.

    Well, now that Lulu has her memory back, I’m still not sure that Emme is a fit as Lulu Spencer. She is cute and credible, but I’d rather see her as another character. So far, she lacks the edge that Julie’s Lulu had – an edge which has made Lulu more complex and more interesting. So far, I much preferred Julie’s Lulu.
