Lynn Herring Returning To General Hospital!

Well word on the street was out that General Hospital was looking to resurrect its classic Nurses Ball, especially with Robin believed to be “dead”, that event would become all the more meaningful and drama-filled.  And with that came speculation that Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) would be making a return also! And now via Soap Opera Digest it has been confirmed!

Fan favorite Herring will be reprising her delicious role of Lucy on December 14th, when Lucy is sought out to lend her expertise with the event!  Remember all the wacky episodes where Lucy was in charge and running around trying to keep the Nurses Ball together? Or, from falling apart? Or, from all the last minute emergencies?

Herring’s return is just another fantastic blast from the past, that executive producer Frank Valentini, and head writer, Ron Carlivati, are delivering to long time fans of GH by bringing back some of the beloved vets!

So, are you excited to see Lynn again as Lucy Coe?  Do you like the idea of GH bringing back the Nurses Ball?  Let us know!

Great news! Lynn is greatly missed, she’d be a great addition. However, this sounds very temporary. Hopefully she’ll be asked to stay.

Wow!! Wonder if these are short term stints for Tristan, Sean and Lynn? Big canvas over there GH! Hope there is storytelling for everyone and not just fixtures in PC. Nice to see her back though!!

Yes yes yes!! Nurses Ball… when Sabrina asked why it had been discontinued, I shouted out “because it was too much fun for the regime that took over and ruined this show!” Sorry, my mob-hate knows no end. Anyway, LOVE Lynn Herring… she represents some of the best that this show has ever had to offer. Is she short term or open ended? Not to be a downer, but I hope the presence of so many beloved GH vets isn’t a ‘last hurrah’ for the show. Now that the show is once again watchable, it would be great to enjoy… Read more »

Yes, Andrew. I wonder the same about the “last hurrah”. I’m almost nervous to be excited for vets to return for this reason. I want them back soooooo badly and not just for a 1-7 day brief visit. More Qs! Bobbie! Laura! Robert!

Shut the front door. I could not be more estactic! Now just bring back Jackie Zeaman. Her character, Bobbi, and Lucy duke it out a few times in the past. We need a classic cat fight.

Emily
Guest

Yes, and I would love to see how they would explain Bobbi’s absence during Joslyns illness, Luke’s intervention, the water contamination, etc… Because she just left her shift one day & was (to the best of my memory) never scene or mentioned again.

I love that FV and RC are bring back in so many of the loved vets, even if for a limited time, it is awesome to see them again..
I wish there were a list of all the appearance and or longer term favorites vets that have been brought back since FV and RC took over., there are many. also the new characters created this past year.
And keeping with GH tradition the Nurses Ball will once again be enjoyed!!
I am totally loving GH It truly is alive and thriving under the new team of FV and RC!!

YEAH TO BOTH! I was wondering if the Nurses Ball would come back, especially after Emma brought out the photo album. I just went ‘ahhh. i miss Lucy…’ when they showed her photo.

would be great if Robin crawled in at the Ball… or even if she showed up backstage and Lucy could scream and think she was seeing Robin’s ghost rather than the real thing! 😀

This is AWESOME news!!! I always felt that the JFP regime gave Lynn the shaft. It was widely reported in the soap press that if spin-off Port Charles failed, that Lynn Herring and Jon Lindstrom would have guaranteed jobs back at the mother ship, GH. That was not honoured when PC was cancelled. I never liked or “got” the character of Lucy until Claire Labine wrote the show, and scripted the best storyline possibly in all of soap history…BJ’s heart transplant into Maxie. Lucy Coe, for the first time in her cartoonish existence, became a real flesh and blood character.… Read more »

Wondering if she’s on contract, or recurring, or just a one or two episode deal. I hope she’s back for a long term story line. Also, for the love of soaps, bring back Jackie Zeman!! Can’t get over how good GH has been since Frank & Ron took over. They really know how to put together a good soap.

I hate to be a party pooper because I love me some Lynn Herring but December? Wasn’t this held every year for about six or seven years in a row in June?

The Nurses Ball was centered around the Day of Compassion.

the Day of Compassion was an annual tv event from 93-98 – that started on OLTL with the Billy Douglas storyline. The creator of the Day was so moved by that OLTL storyline, that he contacted the producers of all ten daytime dramas, suggesting that on June 21, their shows mention AIDS and HIV in some way.

World’s Aids Day is December 1 – that is global and started in 1988.

Hey, I’ll take The Nurses Ball in any month I can get it! December, June, August, March, whatever. I used to love watching them so much. There was an awful lot of hidden talent on that show that shined during The Ball.

I definitely can empathize with how you feel. I’m not quiet ready to tell Frank Valentini thank you yet, but I’m able to tweet him without telling him I can’t stand him, so I guess I’m on my way, LOL baby steps, right? It will be great to have Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) back on. She is truly one of a kind.

I didn’t watch GH with her on it before, but I did catch a few episodes of PC and liked her there. GH is so good right now it’s crazy! I am sure this will only add more dynamic to an already great show. How long is she staying?

This is the best GH news ever. Lucy Coe is my have GH character ever, and I can’t wait to have her back. The only thing to top it is if she stays on the show for a while. Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe always gave the show comedy, sex and sparkle, and GH could use that. (I even named one of my cats after Lucy.)

Breaking News

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
