We love Lucy! That’s a fact, and so do millions of General Hospital fans, who are always excited when Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) pops up on the ABC daytime drama series, but therein lies the problem.

According to actress Lynn Herring, she doesn’t just want to pop up on GH anymore unless there is something substanstive in storyline to warrant her return. Herring shared her thoughts on her official facebook fan page after so many asked if she is coming back anytime soon to GH.

Lynn expressed in a statement:  “Thank you all for thinking of me ….. and Lucy, of course, it means so much! I am loving ranching and Museum-ing (is that a word?) right now. I do miss playing Lucy but I am not interested in a line here or there or a day once in awhile. All the years of happiness and satisfaction I had playing Lucy are too important to me, and I would never want to belittle all the great memories I have of her adventures. If Frank (Valentini) and the writers need Lucy for a story or a firm connection in the show then I will jump out of my saddle and come running for sure.”

Herring added a special P.S:  “Not sure if General Hospital is doing the Nurses Ball again this year and if they are, if Lucy is even included. You will be the first to know when I find out! Thank you for all your interest, support and fun comments! Got to head back outside. The river washed out many of our fences and the cows are taking advantage.”

So, what do you think of Lynn’s sentiments? Do you think GH should give Lucy a greater purpose in story at this juncture?  Do you think the writers  Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman will find a solid way to utilize her in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Me, too! Good for Lynn for standing her ground.

And on that line of thinking–just where is Genie Francis’ promised storyline?

Maybe she will be needed again as the ELQ stuff heats up between Jason and Nikolas. Shareholder meetings. Shareholder drama.

I agree with Lynn they need to give her character more airtime and more then just a line here and there, same for Kristina wagner, it was so sad seeing her at Robins wedding and hardly saying anything she just stood there like a mute, that was not right.

Lucy is such an important part of GH, a character with so much history who was involved in so many great GH moments and stories just like Felicia. It was sad to see Felicia used as a piece of furniture at Robin’s wedding and it was sad to see the treatment Lucy received the past few years as well. I thought the most interesting thing she said was, “All the years of happiness and satisfaction I had playing Lucy are too important to me and I would never want to belittle all the great memories I have of her adventures.”… Read more »

I think it would be less painful to contemplate Lucy’s absence from story prominence if what was being put on the screen in place of stories for Lucy were more compelling. I respect that veteran performers get paid more than newbies and so we’re not going to get the vets in the number and prominence that we’d probably like. But there are others around who, while not Port Charles veterans, are veteran soap stars and commanding high salaries too (West, DeVry, Stafford, Howarth, Miller). I can’t help thinking that it would have been a better use of that money to… Read more »

It would be so great to have Lynn Herring back! In fact, it would be great to bring Lucy, Scott, Bobbie, Mac and Felicia all back on contract. I would much rather see a story using GH’s beloved vets than watch Jordan, Sabrina, Valerie, Nathan, Kiki, Hayden, Curtis or Carlos. All of these newbies will never be able to create the spark the vets were able to. GH has a wealth of legacy characters collecting dust right now. Jax, Brenda, Lucky, Ethan, Holly, Sarah and Steve Webber, Tom Hardy Sr and Jr, Serena Baldwin, Frisco Jones and so many others… Read more »

Jimmy I have been watching GH for a veryyyyyyyyy long time & yes even when all the reg actors actresses were on Steve Audrey, Jessie Brewer. I miss them also but they do have their lives to live in real life. And there are times when GOD calls them to home & its so sad to hear that we lost our dear actorss actresses to cancer etc. I have been following all the stories from the Ice Princess to the freezing of Port Charles Mekos Cassadine & Ceasar Fasion always after Anna.

If and when GH pares down its cast and settles on a core group of characters, Lynn’s Lucy Coe should be among them. However the character should not be written as wacky, which rarely works on soaps. Lucy can be flighty and esoteric but she is also a character with substance and Lynn Herring is brilliant at playing substance. Too many GH characters have become caricatures. The writers need to dig deep and create some compelling stories with a beginning, middle and a payoff. Then just turn loose the brilliant cast and let them have at it. Practically any loyal,… Read more »

General Hospital…Bring Lucy back with a good storyline starting with the Nurses Ball. Next for Lucy after that…I’m liking the revival of Crimson, Port Charles has been a little dull for years. So let Lucy assume a position at Crimson since she is a fashionista and had owned her own cosmetic company. This would really drive Julian crazy.

I really appreciate her and I would love to see her back on GH. At the same time, I realize that there’s only so much room on the canvas. I thought that once Laura was back, Lucy and she would pick up the whole spa story line. That seemed to be encompassing a lot of characters just as the waterfront clinic Michael was working on was supposed to.

I’m happy to hear she loves ranching and “museum-ing”.

I dont see a place for her as the storylines with her were pretty dull. She overacts the role of Lucy and I hope GH concentrates on their better actresses.

Lynn is a fantastic actress. The writing for Lucy was awful, OTT and clownish with Cartini, just like so many other characters. She followed the writing, direction and campy nature of the show just like Dr.O, Denise Demuccio and others, all fine actors. It might be that you didn’t watch the show back in the day to see how wonderful Lynn was. OTT at times yes, but so many layers and so much range, to play it comedic one moment and dead serious the next. She like all the other great actors at the time broke our hearts during BJ’s… Read more »

Lynn Herring was a tremendous asset to GH back in the 80’s and 90’s. I wish new viewers like you would realize that this show wouldn’t even be around if it weren’t for this shows history and veteran actors.

GH needs to give all their vets a greater purpose…its just so-so ok…just little bits here and there…time to have JaSNOOZon remember everything about his past…let him become a doctor or whatever-just move him forward. Let Bobbie buy Kellys…what happened to that business Lucy and Laura were suppose to start…did Laura even read that letter Luke gave her…right now build a chicken coop around old mother hen Laura…good actress deserves better than just looking after her chicks…more Scott too…Y&R uses most of their vets and why it remains number one…GH treats its vets like old useless antiques that no longer… Read more »

@jimh….Kelly’s needs to be restored as one of the major hubs of activities in Port Charles….it was always the perfect place for both the great and small of the community to congregate. Of the current cast, only Laura is the logical choice to run the establishment, although you will notice lower down the page (I hope….) that I have suggested the wild card choice of Robin Mattson as the returning Heather Webber to give the diner a real shot in the arm….figuratively speaking, that is!

Ooooooh….I like the way you think, jimh! I’d even “grant” Heather ( a little play on Ms. Webber’s maiden name there….) a pardon for performing that community service!

Maybe they can write a storyline with some history involved…bring back Lucy and have her and Bobbie being stalked mysteriously….for months someone is playing a cat and mouse game with them and when all is said and done, it turns out the culprit is none other than Kevin O’Connor….he didn’t die from that fall off the cliff back in the 80s and he’s back to wreck havoc and make Lucy and Bobbie pay for their sins…maybe he can be a priest with a vengeance for revenge since both Lucy and Bobbie were “bad girls” in the past….or bring back Serena… Read more »

I wish GH would realize the importance of how viewers want to see beloved characters such as lucy, boobi, mac , Felicia and more from the past. These characters have such a rich history to the fabric of what makes gh the show viewers fell in love with. New characters brought to the canvas is vital to keeping our shows fresh and new. However, need they need to be introduced slowly with character driven stories with connections to the families on the show. I commend gh executive producer frank valentini for acknowledging this by bringing back some of our favorites… Read more »

I totally get and understand Lynn’s feelings, totally valid. I would urge GH and team to bring back Lucy is full-time story, I’d like her to re-team with Laura with Deception or that spa idea they were discussing a few years ago; If GH can manage to bring a big story arc involving Kevin and Lucy, I’m in, right low, GH is dull, most of it, I usually find myself tuning out, unfortunately, if GH can secure Jon (Kevin) and Lynn (Lucy) to the canvas for at least a year, wow that would be amazing, there’s ALWAYS so much story… Read more »

I know. They throw little crumbs but nothing solid for them to chew. The most disturbing, in my opinion, was last November when Audrey Hardy was shown penning a letter to Elizabeth. There was a narration during that scene of her voice. But Heaven forbid if she be allowed to speak and truly act during a scene or share scenes with other actors. It was like watching a ghost.

Michael (not Fairman)

Michael (not Fairman)

I had that thought too, Patricia, but I wondered if Rachel Ames’s age and physical condition may have made it difficult for her to do scenes that demanded any more of her than sitting at a desk. I may be completely off base on that, and I’m not basing it on any real knowledge, just a guess. But it really struck me too at the time as a total waste of the actress’s return, and that’s how I accounted for it in my mind, because I could not see any other good explanation for otherwise wasting a golden opportunity.

Shay
Guest

Exactly, Timmbo! Whilst I’ve also never been a fan of this particular Port Charles drama queen, you’re absolutely correct about how nearly all the GH vets are misused and abused when they are brought back for those extremely limited engagements. We need at least a few of the really great legacy characters like Anna, Scorpio, Laura, Mac, and maybe even Frisco, returned to the canvas on a prominent basis to create some semblance of stability to the show….put them in permanent positions of authority, like mayor, police commissioner, whatever, and quit playing musical chairs in filling those jobs with the… Read more »

Y&R has vets on their show all the time and gives them meaty stories. What gives GH? Frisco should retire from the WSB and should be back as a commissioner of PC! Shayster, me loves Heather! Can you imagine her doing a work release at Kellys! They couldnt keep enough BLT’s for our crazy kook! And another good point there Shay, good time to bring Steven and Jeff back! You are on a roll girlfriend! Kiki. I was watching her the other day with Julian and the KikSTER has really elevated her game. I like her! See ya at Kellys!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, we need a big table at Kelly’s so we can all meet up! Jimh, Harry, CeeCee, Fanny, Patrick, et al of the gang! ‘Twould be a laugh riot! Totally agree with you about Frisco….and yes, Kiki has much improved, but she needs to give Morgan his walking papers for good. So, do you think she resembles a young Heather? It’s the height, long blonde hair and facial structure that remind me of when Robin Mattson first hit town as that irrepressible lunatic!

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Count me in, what a lunch that would be! Does Kellys have CATfish on the menu? Morgan is a loser. He should just concentrate on roasting little Miss America’s coffee beans and leave Kiki alone! Yes Shay, Kiki does resemble a young Robin Mattson AND one day she may even be as good of an actress as Robin. She is heading in the right direction, for sure.

And I’ll third it, Fanny! You know what though??? I could actually have pictured this actress on B&B as Sally Spectra’s illegitimate daughter…..once Sal purportedly “retired,” it would have made perfect sense for her equally flamboyant first-born offspring to roll into town to take over the family business to which she felt entitled after she was given up for adoption by Mama Sal via her twin sister’s “Rose DeVille Agency” in Genoa City! (Wink, wink…)

She used to be Su000. She was such a deliciously good bad girl. Sadly, GH doesn’t value it’s vets.

I’m with get all the way# I mean I don’t understand why they don’t write for the legacy characters who have such rich history. I would involve their offspring in stories that tie them to the past. General Hospital seems like the only soap that under utilizes their classic characters. Lucy deserves story.

Brian

Just bring her back full time and bring back one of her daughters to be a third wheel with Kiki and Morgan or maybe for Michael. One of the girls is Scotty’s daughter so that would be a sibling to Franco and could be more story for all involved.

Agree completely with a lot of what’s been said. It’s as if they can’t find writers who can write for Laura, Bobbie, Lucy, Felicia….and all of the great veteran characters that are still there, even if recurring, who could have an impact on the show. They miss out on the entire intergenerational relationships that make soaps great. Laura having the exact same conversation with Lulu 20 times doesn’t count.

I agree with LYNN totally! I think she should move on to another show/soap. GH continually ignores HER fans asking for HER return. I think let them ignore the multi talented actress and I know someone else will realize how talented she is and scoop her up. We ALL support Lynn..AKA Lucy ! If they snooze much longer, GH will LOSE..IN A BIG WAY!

I’ve been watching the show since Audrey and Jessie were the ingenues! I’ve seen characters and storylines come and go (and come and go again!). Lynn Herring has been allowed to show great range from time to time (like when BJ almost died – still one of the most memorable times ever!) … and she’s made viewers laugh until they cried. I will never understand why they have an actress like her at their disposal – and a character with so much potential as Lucy – and they simply refuse to utilize her. They teased a great possibility with Lucy… Read more »

Speaking of the NB, if the writers cannot do any better than the last two debacles, may I suggest just skipping over it this year??? Even though the 50th anniversary event held some real disappointments in terms of the way legacy characters were treated, it at least generated excitement at the thought of so many beloved veterans returning to Port Charles, albeit far too briefly. The same cannot be said for 2014 and 2015….with the sole exceptions of Dr. O.’s inspired sets and Spinelli’s charming star turn this past year, the performances were mostly cringeworthy.

I agree Shay, The NB has been a snooze fest! There is so much talent attached to GH over the years. I’m not saying that Ricky Martin, Jack Wagner and Rick Springfield would all roll into Port Charles for the event BUT Hollywood is a charitable bunch, AIDS is a serious cause, why not attach the cause with the characters and celebrities and have a 2 hour primetime event on ABC. “ABC and General Hospital Presents…” and do the show WITHOUT any GH stories dragging the event down!

Unfortunately this is all just redundant. So many posts lament the old GH. Many newer viewers don’t long for the old days or the vets…and why should they? They don’t share the memories or the nostalgia for the old GH. Many of us who DO miss those days seem to be spinning our wheels…as do the GH actors such as Lynn Herring who have been put on the back burner, or extinguished. I love Lucy Coe. I love her quirks, neurosis, devious mind, good heart, loyalty, humor, exuberance…just everything about her. I also love Kevin, Scott, Mac, Bobbie,, Frisco, Robert,… Read more »

Two things in reply, Rebecca (and I agree with what you’re saying): (1) All of the change and upheaval would be easier to stomach if what they are doing were working–but it isn’t. TPTB can blame it all they want on changing demographics and viewing habits, and I’m sure that plays a part, but the overall decline in ratings also points to their failure to provide consistently compelling viewing—for a long time now. Storytelling matters, but they’ve driven just about all the real talent out of the soap writing field because they won’t let the writers do their jobs. (2)… Read more »

Hi Michael (not Fairman)…lol…always thought the way you phrased that was cute…. Ya. I understand and agree with what you’ve said as well. And yes, at some point each familiar character was new. But there was always the core group, the “originals” that everyone else centered around. That’s what’s missing. They’ve let a few remain, the others are barely mentioned or pop in out of nowhere and the quickly disappear. I hesitate to say anything else about it because as I said above, it’s just redundant. A shame… Realistically, it can never be the show it once was. we’re never… Read more »

Yes, I think they need to give her a story line. She is the one that Stole the voting box with Duke and she has that 1% in ELQ and Laura and her were going to go into business before Laura left again. There are some idea’s for them. I hope the notice this and correct the problem and give her a juicy major storyline.

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.
