The Lynn Herring Interview – As The World Turns

Lynn HerringIt’s the end of the line for Audrey Coleman and actress Lynn Herring, when the soap opera fan favorite leaves the Oakdale canvas and As the World Turns on Tuesday, October 27th. Lynn, who signed a short term contract in the role of Henry’s money-hungry mother from hell, Audrey, stole the show in every scene she was in. But, that is nothing new for Herring. After all, for
17 years combined, on both General Hospital and its spinoff, Port Charles, she played Lucy Coe for all she was worth…and then some. Married to actor, Wayne Northop, (the original Roman Brady of Days of our Lives) for 28 years, the actors run a cattle ranch in a small community in Northern California. It has been six years since Lynn left the country lifestyle to come back in front of the cameras and the Big Apple, for her return no less.

On-Air On-Soaps wanted to speak to Lynn at the end of her run, to get her views on how she felt her guest-stint went, and how the daytime landscape has shifted. With the soap opera genre trying to change the way it facilitates guest star turns to garner a ratings burst, and to attract more viewers from other soaps with familiar and legacy characters from those daytime dramas, Lynn saw first hand how ATWT has been bringing actors on and off. Having to deal with new soap budgetary constraints was all something new for the beloved Herring, as well. But even through that she says the work was a joy. To this day, viewers of General Hospital and Lynn herself are clamoring for a Lucy comeback…but, the actress is quick to point out, only if the situation made sense.

So, how did the bitchfest scenes between ATWT’s Colleen Zenk Pinter’s, Barbara, and Lynn’s, Audrey, go down? What was it like getting to work with soap vets, Anthony Herrera ( James Stenbeck) and her ex-GH hubby and buddy, Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan, GH, and Ralph ATWT)? How about getting to play the very young mom of Henry Coleman, played by Trent Dawson? Lynn details it all in this “Farewell…. for Now” feature.


So while you were finishing your run on As the World Turns, sadly, Guiding Light concluded. I was wondering what your feelings were, stepping back in to this genre at this very tumultuous time? What was that like for you?


I had lunch with Jane Eliot (Tracy, GH) and we discussed how the audience was so articulate about Guiding Light and how much they loved the show and were so sad when it ended, and that on GH, Mafia and bad violence has turned people away. The networks don’t get that our viewers are so intuitive and smart. Even GH people, who had never watched GL and are faithful to their show, understood what it meant to lose a show like that. Daytime is a lot classier than people think, and it hurt to be back on daytime and see what has happened in the genre. I love this genre!

Lynn HerringMICHAEL:

So it was a nice summer gig? I know you came to LA to move your son Hank into his first dorm at USC in the middle of all this.


What was nice about the As the World Turns job for the summer was it gave me space to be independent, and not miss my kids so much. I did just put my son Hank in college at USC, which was tough and great all at the same time. So my family would visit me in New York, and then go back to California. So I was not on top of them all summer trying to make Hank pack for school three months early! I would have driven the poor kid nuts! (Laughs)


So you taped in New York for about three months. You saw how the landscape of daytime is nowadays, and in particular at ATWT, where they move bigger name actors in and out for short story cycles.


It was perfect. I taped from the end of May till the end of August, and it could not have been better for me. Chris Goutman (executive producer, ATWT) told me, “It’s so hard when something clicks, or it’s working to add something in or extend it, because we are already working two months ahead and then the person leaves.” Even Judi Evans’ (Maeve) and Stuart Damon’s (Ralph) characters work so well, but the producers have a lot of cast members they have to commit story to that are there already. It’s a complicated process when you are two months ahead.


Do you think guest starring or short-term character storytelling works well in this genre?


I think part of it is story telling, and everybody wants their ratings to improve. So if you hit them with maybe three or four actors that have been around and are recognizable faces, it pulls in some different viewers. My problem is; I am old school style where you slowly introduce a character and you work them into a family and then you give them circumstances that no one could believe a year later. So we did not have that on ATWT, or that luxury anymore in this economy, and trying to get the ratings. Old school does not work, I guess, but everybody can debate that until we are blue in the face.

Barbara and LynnMICHAEL:

How was the experience of playing Audrey on As the World Turns?


Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara) and I, and Trent Dawson (Henry), had big discussions on that. And even Colleen was telling me in the heyday, Proctor & Gamble and CBS was a different bird than ABC. Our marketing department there, because ABC owned its soaps, was different. At CBS and P&G you are more like the English theatre, where you go get your own wardrobe and participate in a theatre group more than you are pampered in a good way on GH. The funniest thing is; you have to get used to it, and it’s nothing bad. Even Stuart Damon was used to the way GH worked. They would bring you your wardrobe and you have things done that make your days easier, but it does not make the crew’s day easier. At ATWT everybody works together, which I liked a lot. It’s night and day, and you can’t compare the situation. But the beauty of it is the storytelling, and being out on that stage is the same. I never had more fun laughing than with the crew at ATWT, and their Brooklyn accents! I am so used to California accents. Hey dudes! Taking the subway and getting on the Q train everyday was great, and for an LA actress…. well, let’s just say; I would have my regulars on the train with me. which was the best. I would wave to them and it was great! Kin Shriner (Ex-Scott, GH) said to me, “Oh, you are not going to like it because you have to travel to Brooklyn to get to the studios!” I thought, “He is so wrong.” I loved every minute of that. I waved to the Statue of Liberty every day I went by it. For three months it was like I was at summer camp, so it was cool!


Would you make another return as Audrey, now that all is said and done?

Wayne and LynnLYNN:

I would go back to ATWT for a short stint. After taping for three months, the ranch is really hard for Wayne to be the only person running it, because we have always run it together for 20 years.
When you are gathering cows, one body does not a round up make! (She laughs)


Cattle ranch and your soap life… and you see what happens when your two worlds collide!


The only thing is my fingernails are a problem because they are always so dirty and grungy that I have to quickly try to file and polish them for the show. You have to paint your toes, and get it together! (Laughs) You know the best is the town we live in. Raymond accepted us twenty years ago. Then the best story is about the cowboys who went to this bar in town the first week I aired on ATWT, and we only have three bars in the entire area. They told me that business had never been better! I was laughing! All the cowboys piled all the cows into the trailers as fast as they could to get to the bar in time to watch ATWT. The whole bar was lined with cowboys watching me on the soap opera.


Did what Chris Goutman and the writers at As the World Turns present to you as Audrey in the end meet your expectations?

Lynn, Trent and MaddieLYNN:

It is not exactly what I thought. The work with Trent and being his mom and a grifter was spot on and fun….despite the criticism for the age. Trent and I have similar acting styles. I think we worked as mother and son. I have met women who have had sons when they are young and they are very close and competitive, in a funny way. The part that worked for me was our personalities, and how appalled he was at some of my behavior. I only had two shows with Alexandra Chando (Maddie), who played my daughter. That was disappointing, because I really liked her the first time I met her. I think our dynamic was very interesting. That show has a big canvas with a lot of people. So I understand you are not going to give a short run character as much. Colleen and I had a ball. I would not have traded that for anything. We had catfights and stunts, and the audience enjoyed that. But for Trent, I wish we would have dealt more with what makes him tick because of who his mother is. They decided to write more capers instead of going more in-depth. Trent has always wanted Henry’s mother there, and then it opened up because Paul ends up being Henry’s brother. It’s a weird dynamic, that hopefully, they will play in the future.


It was interesting that Audrey ended up being tied in, with of all people, evil personified, James Stenbeck! How did those two end up crossing each other’s paths, for those who may have blinked an eye and missed that beat of your story?


They met when Audrey left Henry’s dad because he was verbally abusing her and treating her horribly. She got married really young and she ran away. Audrey runs into James Stenbeck in a gambling club and that is how she is surviving. He was a high roller, who helped her out financially, and so she was beholden to him. They had this strange parasitic relationship, where he liked the young glamour girl and she liked his money, and that is how they teamed up in New Orleans. And it turned out to be a great story to the ATWT Louisiana audience, because Trent is from Louisiana and I went to school at LSU, so that was the connection there. In the story we wanted his money and we were hoping to get his money. It was Henry and I against Paul and Colleen. It was fun.

Audrey and StenbeckMICHAEL:

I was sorta shocked to see Anthony Herrera (James) back again. How is his health?


He is fine. He has had such a long history there and it’s short handed and he knows everybody. Just the uncomfortableness of Henry being James’ father was funny.


What is your take away from ATWT? Would you go back to GH as Lucy Coe and finally get the closure you wanted, or another soap if it was offered?


I never had closure with Lucy. What has been really hard, and I did say this in other interviews this summer in New York. Audrey had not yet aired at all and people would come up to me and say, “Why on earth are you not back on GH as Lucy?” That is so hard when so many people come up and blame you for not being there. Of course, it’s just a personal thing, but for me it’s hard on the subway because I don’t know what to say. I just say, “Thank you.” It’s tricky. The closure would be to finish up Lucy and have her go back to Paris, or whatever. What whet my appetite for doing soaps again on ATWT was watching the interaction of Colleen and Trent, and the people that have been there and their camaraderie. I missed that so much because of my years with ABC. What it also did was whet my appetite for being able to do acting. I mean, you don’t stay away for six years from something you love and not eat it up. It was awesome and I would love to go do another role. I had forgotten about stepping into those kind of parts, and how much fun it is.


So, still no call from GH to reprise Lucy?

Lynn and LindstromLYNN:

Truthfully, most days I understand it and why, because the mafia was so big at GH and that Lucy was not part of it. My cronies and Lucy’s, Kin Shriner and Jon Lindstrom are not there, and a lot of people I used to work with are long gone. So that part and initially not going back did not bother me. I would like to be back there in some way now. I don’t think that is going to happen now that they are heading in new stories, and I don’t blame them. It’s still hard, though.


Fan bases had been up in arms about how disappointed they were
in recent months with GH. Had you seen that? Now, the show seems to be turning a corner with the return of popular actors and some huge surprises in store.


I had no idea how vitriolic it was. The thing to me is you don’t have to invest a five year story arc. You can do it for six months, but you need a story. What I am not sure of now, from being on ATWT for three months and seeing the budget limitations for all the shows, is how fast they have to work. I may be old school, and my style may not be appropriate in a sense that GH is doing the mob murder mystery things.


Did they ever work this fast back in the old days?


The beauty of Port Charles is we tried to move fast because we were a half hour show under Julie Carruthers (former exec prod, PC now, EP at AMC). I was not surprised by how fast things went there. Michael Park (Jack) came up to me and said, “ Just be prepared to have your running shoes on because we go so fast,” and they do. But because the way we had done Port Charles, I was up to speed when I got to ATWT. Michael is lovely and funny. Maura West (Carly) was on maternity leave the whole time I was there, but I do know they all love daytime and they want it to be the best.

Audrey and HenreyMICHAEL:

After GL was cancelled there were statements made by CBS and rumors circulating that ATWT would be the next soap on the chopping block in 2010. What was the morale like over there when this hit the press?


That made everybody tense…with Guiding Light being cancelled and seeing the end of that. Colleen told me they were twin shows. They were with P&G all these years, and she is concerned that people who were calling her did not know the difference between the two shows, ATWT and Guiding Light. “It was very upsetting that we were sister shows,” she told me. Colleen wanted people to give them a chance before they dig the grave. They really do have some good fun stories and good people. They have got to get people to tune in for November sweeps.


You got to work with Stuart Damon again in your career, just for a bit, though!


Yeah, we worked together as he was playing Ralph. He is a mafia guy, which was the irony. Stuart and I laughed so hard. Ralph is a mafia guy who dead pans these threats. He threatens Henry and Audrey and Brad and Katie. He was wonderful.


How is Stuart doing these days?


He is OK. He physically he has had a lot of issues. The terrible thing about all of us is; we have to be allowed to age. A couple of people from ATWT said, “Oh, my gosh, he looks so much older,” and I go, “Well, when you are in your 70’s you will, too.” You cannot freeze time and that is one thing in our culture I don’t like. I got a lot of emails saying, “Did you have a face lift?” Yeah, sure! (Laughs) No one up here in cattle town would allow me to be so self-involved to my getting a face-lift. So I said, “No.” But they think that you should if you are in the entertainment business! So to not allow Stuart to age is silly to me. It happens to the best of us. I think upkeep is good to staying healthy, and you would hope that a lot of women who are looking amazing in their 40 and 50’s can have that without the Botox and silicone lips.

Stu and LynnMICHAEL:

I could not stand it on GH when they made Alan Quartermaine a ghost! Why even kill him off?


There is no reason to do
it. You leave them on and
they don’t have to work
all the time, but you give the character dignity and respect, and that is all. Stuart was devastated being off GH. Truthfully, Y&R does it best with utilizing their veteran actors with Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) and that group, which kept their whole situation viable.


And prior to Audrey, you actually went up for the role of Jill Abbott as Jess Walton’s replacement while she was in heavy contract talks with Y&R. What went down with that?


I talked about it, if Jess Walton was going to leave. I called Tony Morina (director, Y&R) and asked him, “What is this with Jess ?” Because that is such a great part, and the irony of it was, it was really true that one the first things I ever tested for in daytime was Jill on Y&R. When Brenda Dickson (Ex- Jill) was quitting because of her contract, they brought me in and I tested. Then Brenda decided on staying, which is what happened with Jess Walton. What was sweet was Barbara Bloom (Sr VP CBS Daytime Programs) kept me on her radar. Chris Goutman and Barbara were then thinking of parts I could do. So it just gelled so nicely. I do believe things all cycle back.


Does your husband, Wayne Northrop, (Ex-Roman, DAYS) want to do more acting?


He would love to play Roman, of course, and it was a shame of what it became. He and Ken Corday (exec prod, DAYS) had lots of conversations about that. Ken would say, “If things would have gone differently we would have loved Roman to come back as a core character.” It was a mess. That was nobody’s fault; it was different writers and timing. I think Wayne loves daytime, too, but I don’t think he has any desire to do something unless it’s this kind of a part, like an Audrey, a three-month stint that was a blast, or something true to Roman.


Did Wayne watch you on ATWT?

Funeral Barbara AudreyLYNN:

He watched the first two days. He went out in the bunkhouse and took his sandwich. He liked the
first week! (Laughs)


As we end your visit to Oakdale, looking back, what were your favorite scenes?


The catfights with Colleen were the best. I loved when Audrey wrestled with Barbara and threw her in the coffin on top of James. The funeral beat was snarky and they gave us all great lines.

‘As the World Turns’ Alum Martha Byrne Speaks Out On Conviction Against Her Husband, Michael McMahon: “We are Fighting Till the End”

If you have been following two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Martha Byrne’s (ex-Lily, As the World Turns) social media accounts or have been following news reports, Byrne is adamantly speaking out about charges and a conviction levied against her husband, former decorated NYPD sergeant-turned-licensed private investigator, Michael McMahon.

The couple share three children together and have been married for over 30 years.  Last week, McMahon was preparing to go back to work. However, Michael was blindsided when a Brooklyn federal court convicted him and two others accused of stalking a New Jersey couple on behalf of China.

McMahon told the New York Post, that he felt betrayed by the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Clarifying further, Michael felt he and his family with Martha Byrne where being made scapegoats in the DOJ’s first case against Operation Fox Hunt, which is the Chinese Communist Party’s anti-corruption campaign that targets Chinese nationals abroad.  It also targets former government officials and others suspected of economic crimes against China.

In the case against McMahon, he was hired in fall of 2016 by what he believed was a translation company from New Jersey to do surveillance on a luxury New Jersey home occupied by a relative of Xu Jin and Liu Fang, and to use public records to find companies and other assets registered to the couple.  He was then informed that Xu and Liu had had stolen money from a construction company, and the people who hired him wanted to find where the cash had gone. However, McMahon says what he was not told was that Xu was a former official in Wuhan, who had fled China amid allegations of corruption.

McMahon said that when he conducted surveillance as he had done on numerous other cases.  However, what he did not know was that his work was used in a civil suit in New Jersey in 2018 against Xu and others by a Chinese construction group that alleged that they had embezzled millions from that company.

Things took a bad turn in October of 2020 when 12 federal agents surrounded McMahon and Byrne’s home.  Michael was arrested, but it wasn’t your normal arrest, he detailed.  McMahon didn’t think he needed a lawyer so he spoke to the FBI agents. He had wanted to help the government.

Byrne shared, “He was being as transparent as he possibly could. Instead, they turned everything against him and made him look like the devil in court. I’ve never seen such dark forces trying to portray him as an unlawful person.”

McMahon was charged with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act by working for the Chinese government without telling the State Department, and with conspiracy to commit interstate stalking.

Byrne answered one soap fan’s inquiry to clarify what exactly happened to her husband in a Facebook post. She expressed: “He was hired to find assets on a civil matter. never asked to do ANYTHING illegal. The FBI let the Chinese agents flee, who were operating some scheme separately and unbeknownst to my husband, so the FBI turned their attention to an innocent man to save face. They took legal work as a PI and deemed it criminal for their own purposes. This is VERY VERY scary for every US citizen.”

In the NY Post account, it details that the DOJ shifted its focus to Operation Fox Hunt, targeting private investigators across the country, including McMahon.

Currently Michael is not allowed to be a private detective until this case is overturned.  He shared: “I didn’t harass or stalk anyone, and if I had been asked to do so, or if I had suspected that my clients worked for the Chinese Communist Party, I would have contacted the FBI right away and not proceeded with the job.”

Byrne expressed: “The DOJ knew this problem existed, that private investigators were being used, they knew the patterns well, but they communicated none of this until after Mike’s arrest … We are fighting to the end.”

McMahon’s lawyer will file a post-trial motion next month to overturn the conviction.

On her Twitter account, Martha shared their lawyer’s, Lawrence Lustberg’s statement: “We are obviously very disappointed with today’s verdict and feel strongly that it is not consistent with the evidence in the case but more importantly, is not consistent with the truth.  That truth is that Michael McMahon never had any idea that he was working for the Chinese Government.  If he had, he would not have taken the job or done the work he did.  His work in this case was the normal every day work of a private investigator and Mike’s conviction on the stalking counts, as a practical matter, criminalizes the work of private investigators in every case.  We will file post-trial motions and, if necessary appeal, until all possible appeals and lawful avenues to challenge this verdict have been exhausted.  And I believe that we will ultimately prevail because this conviction is a terrible injustice, one that I do not believe our legal system will allow to stand.”

What do you think about the conviction of Martha Bryne’s husband, Michael McMahon and by all accounts how he has been wrongly convicted? Comment below.

Pride Month Celebrating LGBTQ+ Soap Supercouples: Nuke, Kish, Otalia & WilSon … Which Stands the Test of Time?

June is Pride Month, the time when across the U.S and the world there are celebrations and commemorations to recognize all who identify as LGBTQ and their allies.

Daytime soap operas have had a rocky road when it comes to the representation of same-sex couples.  The soaps have been at one time leaders in portraying key social issues of our time, as well as treading lightly on other subjects, as to its concerns to ‘turn-off’ its core audiences.

When you look back at the groundbreaking first same-sex weddings, and the first gay kiss, the soaps have come far in some ways in their representations of gay characters, but there is always work to be done to serve and to shed light on the under-represented.

As we reflect back to the then and the now, which LGBTQ soap supercouple remains your favorite and had made a lasting impact? Let’s take a look at four duos who captivated many viewers.

Nuke  – Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer – As the World Turns

Van Hansis (Luke) and Jake Silbermann (Noah) were a key part of the evolution of, and representation of LGBTQ character on the soaps.  ‘Nuke’, as they were known as, became the first gay male soap couple to share an on-screen kiss back in 2007.  ATWT also became known as the first soap to depict a fully realized romantic male couple as an integral part of the show.  There was plenty of backlash along the way for the long-awaited kiss to happen, but when it did, the show moved forward to tell their love story.

Otalia – Olivia Spencer and Natalia Rivera Aitoro – Guiding Light

When Crystal Chappell (Olivia) and Jessica Leccia (Natalia) began to play the love story of Otalia, they had to show their affection by a kiss on the head, or holding hands.  It took quite some time for GL to move forward to have two women, two moms, no less, share a lip lock. The complicated love story featured Natalia being conflicted to face her true romantic feelings for Olivia, because of her value system and religions upbringing, and that made this all the more riveting and frustrating at the same time.  In the end, the rabid fan base for this duo was so great that Chappell wound up creating her own series, Venice, to honor and serve them, remaining one of the LGBTQ communities greatest allies.

Kish – Kyle Lewis and Oliver Fish – One Life to Live

In 2009, One Life to Live’s Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell) was an out lab tech in Llanview, who back in college had a relationship with Officer Oliver Fish (Scott Evans).  It imploded when Oliver denied he was gay.  For years, Oliver remained in the closet, before finally coming out to himself and Kyle.

Kish had been a big success with the media and One Life’s gay audience. LGBTQ-advocacy groups honored the couple and the story.  However, Kish was cut short when the network felt that the data showed that the storyline was not resonating with the show’s core audience.

WilSon – Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis – Days of our Lives

Days of our Lives delivered daytime’s first-ever gay male wedding in 2014, between Will (then played by Guy Wilson) and Sonny (then played by Freddie Smith).

In an interview with EW, Days of our Lives executive producer, Ken Corday shared on the union, “Will and Sonny have been together for a while and it was the natural progression of their love story. We didn’t feel like there was anything we could or couldn’t do, we treated them like any other couple on the canvas and continued to grow their romance as such.”

In addition, the coming out story of Will Horton was critically praised and noteworthy for the performances of Chandler Massey, who won three Daytime Emmys for his work in the Outstanding Younger Actor category 2012, 2013 and 2014.  Freddie Smith also won in the same category in 2015.  Will has been played over the years by Chandler Massey and Guy Wilson, while Sonny has been portrayed by Freddie Smith and Zach Tinker.

There have been several other key LGBTQ couples throughout the course of daytime history including All My Children’s Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun). These two characters were involved in the first same-sex lesbian wedding on daytime. Problem was … Reese kissed Zach (Thorsten Kaye) before the wedding, making this infuriating for viewers at home.

Other notable LGBTQ couples through the years have included: Bianca and Maggie on All My Children, Mariah and Tessa of The Young and the Restless played bv Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks, Maya and Rick on The Bold and the Beautiful, Lucas and Brad on General Hospital and others.

Which couple do you think has had the most lasting impact on the history of LGBTQ representation on daytime soap operas? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

As the World Turns Castmates Mourn the Loss of Elizabeth Hubbard

UPDATED: Monday, the soap world was saddened by the loss of one of the most respected actress ever in the genre, when the news broke of the death of Daytime Emmy-winner, Elizabeth Hubbard.

This powerhouse performer who was best known for her work as Dr. Althea Davis on The Doctors, and as Lucinda Walsh on As the World Turns, died this past Saturday at her home in Connecticut from cancer.

Throughout this afternoon, several of Hubbard’s former As the World Turns castmates took to social media to share their reactions on the passing of this beloved daytime icon.  In addition, Retro TV, which has been airing vintage episodes of The Doctors, also paid tribute to Hubbard.

Martha Byrne (ex-Lily, ATWT) shared on her Instagram: As many of you are finding out this morning, Elizabeth Hubbard passed away. First and foremost I want everyone to know I made sure she was aware of how much everyone loved her. I would share your comments from social media, videos and your fond memories of her as Lucinda, Althea, every time I saw her. She loved the audience and fought like HELL to bring truth and honesty to her performances. On a personal level there aren’t words to describe how much she meant to me. Only feelings, which override words in so many cases when it comes to love. I will be sharing more so we can all grieve together but here are our last words together only just a few days ago. I said, “Liz, do you know how much you have done for me?” She said, “You can do more.” Because of what she has done for me over the last 38 years, the strength and fearless nature in how she lived her life, she is right, I can AND WILL do more. I look forward to sharing more about her life, which encompasses so much more than her INCREDIBLE career on daytime television. She also said to me when I told her how much the fans loved her…”I tried.” She more than tried. She left it all on the screen. I’ll miss her every day but grateful the universe gifted me with such a force of nature, of which the world will not see the likes of again. ❤️”

Michael Park (ex-Jack) shared via Twitter: “If Liz was involved in a scene I was lucky enough to be in, I could always count on learning a little something and laughing a whole lot. She was a ferocious talent in love with her craft. One of the greats that will certainly be missed.”

Mary Beth Evans (ex-Sierra, ATWT and now Kayla, DAYS) expressed: “I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth Hubbard for six years on As the World Turns, where she played my mother. What an amazing powerhouse this woman was … always striving for spontaneity and keeping it real. My favorite times with her were riding in the car from Manhattan to Brooklyn — the stories she would tell were so much fun. Rest in peace, sweet lady. #RIPLIZ #ATWT

Peter Boynton (ex-Tonio, ATWT) added: “Rest in peace, Boss! Working with/for you at ‘Walsh Enterprises’ was a highlight of my NYC years! Your encouragement and respect meant the world to me. I’m raising a glass to you and feel so lucky to have worked with you in that great ‘ATWT’ community. On angels wings. – Peter ‘Tonio Reyes’ Boynton.”

Scott Bryce (ex-Craig, ATWT) said, “She was astonishing. Liz RIP. Love you woman.”

Retro TV expressed: “We are saddened to hear of soap-opera legend Elizabeth Hubbard’s passing at age 89. A force to be reckoned with, Hubbard stole our hearts with her portrayal of Althea Davis on The Doctors. Please share your favorite memories with us as we remember the beloved Elizabeth Hubbard.”

In addition, Alec Baldwin who played Billy Aldrich on The Doctors wrote: “I worked on The Doctors with the great Liz Hubbard. An amazing woman and remarkable actress.”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to update this post as reactions continue from Liz’s colleagues.
