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 »

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.
