Circle next Friday December 14th for the return of Lynn Herring as the one and only Lucy Coe to General Hospital! Herring’s last visit to Port Charles was over eight and half years ago when Lucy attended Lila Quartermaine’s funeral. This time, Lucy is summoned to town for her expertise on the Nurses Ball!
In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Herring reveals her shock and the happy surprise that she was asked back to General Hospital at this time. She also noted how many great things she had been told about GH’s latest creative team of executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati, especially from her long time friends and GH co-stars Tony Geary (Luke) and Jane Elliot (Tracy)!
Lynn admitted she was completely blown away by the handle the writing team has on her one of a kind character stating: “The voice the writers gave Lucy in the 90′s was pretty specific. Frank Valentini said ‘I know you haven’t done this in awhile but you have to understand, Ron Carlivati is truly a fans of that time period and those characters and he really does get it!’Of course, until you see it on the page, you’re never sure, but when I read the first show, I was in awe. The script writers and the outline writers and Ron, obviously, all got it, which is a gift in itself – not just to get to go back, but to have some funny oneliners and the reactions of the other characters to Lucy!”
So are you excited for the return of Lynn Herring? And how the writers look to be treating her like the Lucy of old? Let us know!
