Lynn Herring On The Making Of Her Return To GH As Fan Fave Lucy Coe!

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!

SO excited for Lucy’s return! 😀 😀 😀 She is one of my all time faves & if she’s written like she was in the 90’s, even better! Looking forward to seeing her get mixed up with the Nurses Ball again & it’ll be interesting to see how she reconnects with some longtime characters & how the newer characters to the canvas will react to her. Another good decision by Frank Valentini & Ron Carlivati.

I’ve loved all the returns, especially Anna and Robert, but I’m surprised to find that I’m more excited about Lucy returning than even them. l’m so glad Lynn is coming back with Ron writing for her character.

So glad that GH is bringing back our favorite characters of the 80’s and 90’s. Anna and Robert were always a favorite of mine. I want to see the Scorpios reunited and hope that Anna falls back in love with Robert. Duke is a nice guy, but have always felt the chemistry between Robert and Anna. Also glad to have Lucy back. She is a lot of fun and should bring more vitality back to the show.

I’m so ecstatic right now. I’ve waited a decade for GH to be at least watchable again. Frank and Ron have made GH exceed my expectations….it’s that good! The previous regime had no regard for GH history OR its beloved and iconic characters. To have Felicia back, the Q’s a major force again, juicy Lucy returning, and miracle of miracles, I actually love the character of Michael. It looks like ABC is taking notice. Sure, what has replaced the soaps are ratings bombs but GH has actually increased its once anemic ratings. I’m so proud of everybody at GH. I’m… Read more »

It would be nice if Lucy addressed her absence during Tony’s funeral.

I met Lynn Herring at a Soap Event back in 2003.She was one of the nicest soap stars Iever met. Actually she was THE NICEST! while the handlers of the event tried to move things along she was patient and genuinely expressed interest in all her fans. I LOVE LUCY (and Lynn)

Definitely looking forward to the return of Lucy Coe, and the humor she brings, as well as the sweet, tender side of her, both of which are played briilliantly by Lynn Herring. I have no doubt that Frank, Ron and all other writers will have her fittng right in.

I’ve always loved Lucy and thought her character was a big part of the General Hospital family. Good to see her coming back, now let’s work on letting her stay!

Happy for her return and how refreshing that Ron Carlivati “gets” her character. I wish more writers stayed true to form. I would love to see her mix it up with Roger Howarth who I think is just brilliant! 🙂

Sadly I started watching GH only after Sonny and Brenda were being put together. I did, however, watch PORT CHARLES when the show was facing the ax and they did the arcs (I think I started right before Tainted Love). I remember Sigmund, Lucy’s duck or goose. Whatever happened to him? What happened to Lucy and Doc? I remember Lucy was with someone else and Doc was with the other woman (Julie Pinson). I guess I only remember Rafe and Allison riding off together, but nothing else. I remember the 90s Lucy too. Very flighty, but a great heart.

I hope Lucy will recognize John and Sam as Caleb and Livvie, otherwise the continuity’s all screwed up. Besides, them feeling such a connection is totally tied into the characters they played on Port Charles.

HURRAY!!!!!!!!! I am soooooooo excited to learn that Lynn Herrring is returning to GH – I’ve been waiting since Port Chuck went off the air – now we’ll REALLY have some fun. Lynn is a fabulous actor – her comedic timing is flawless. I’m so happy, I could jump for joy-
Thank you, Frank and Ron, I know you’ll give her a great storyline – it’s just wonderful thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh, and did I remember to say thank you??

Bringing Lynn Herring back is a good step in the right direction for the series. Since seeing her, she’s already a nice light and joy to have on the series. I hope she sticks around.

I am happy about her return, but a little confuused as to what happened to the person who played Kevin and how they will explain about him not returning. I think I heard on of the characters saying that Kevin got an aneyrism after hitting his head on the faucet in the bathtub and that he died, and maybe that is why Lucy is going nuts and hallucinating and that the other soap opera was part of her hallucination, is that how they are explaining his abscence. Maybe he planned to come back, but because of living in New York… Read more »

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
