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 she will be great…..but what happened to Marcie Ryland? Name change is dumb

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.

I’m not going to lie I’m so sad that Julie left she is Lulu to me and her chemistry with Dante and Maxie are amazing, and I do wish her the best of luck… but I will give the NULulu a chance and she how she does she my come on & be just as great as Julie….

Abby – Ashley, Y&R. Eileen Davidson.

Lulu – Laura, GH. Genie Francis.

Gosh… how i miss GL.

anyway… her body of work is amazing… to think about… GL was fantastic!

Continued Success Emme.

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.

Ash –

right on!

it’s staggering to realize… how good, we take for granted… Talent…

yeah, we’ve know this all along

and/or we have the last laugh… cause we realize talent first…

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!

Erica

I am thrilled to see her evolve as the new Lulu , she is a rare talent . Good job General Hospital for offering her what Young and the Restless couldn’t .

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

jimh

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

Bri

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

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.

Vana

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

Kat

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…

jimh
jimh

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!

Kat
Kat

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.

jimh

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

Kat

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

jimh

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 have been watch general since it first and I am a true viewed for a very long tome. I do not lil tnhe new lulu. I want the old lulu to come back.

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.

Caitie

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.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
