HomeTVABCPraise The Almighty: Lynn Herring Checks Back Into General Hospital! Jillian Bowe November 2, 2012 ABC, Comings & Goings, General Hospital, News 37 Comments General Hospital fan favorite Lynn Herring is heading back to Port Charles! Soap Opera Digest is reporting the popular star is reprising the role of Lucy Coe on Dec. 14, just in time for the Nurses Ball! Herring originated the role of the mousy librarian-turned-temptress in 1986, and barring a brief exit to play Lisanne Gardner on Days of Our Lives, remained on GH as Lucy until 1997. That year the character was spun off to Port Charles, which was cancelled in 2003. Herring last appeared as Lucy during the tribute episodes following the death of Lila Quartermaine (the late Anna Lee) in 2004 37 Responses Ryan-Scott November 2, 2012 OH HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: Log in to Reply SoapyBitch November 2, 2012 Now that’s a hat. Take note Days. I hope she goes stays for a while. Log in to Reply really November 2, 2012 YAY!!!!!!!!!! LUCY COE IS COMING HOME!!!!!!! MY SECOND FAVORITE CHARACTER OF ALL TIME. She better be having tons of scenes with Luke, Tracy and Monica!! I don’t want her wasted on Sonny, Carly, or Todd. I want her with important characters. MY BELOVED LUCY COE IS BACK!!! Log in to Reply days4ever November 2, 2012 Is she on contract or just back short term? This is awesome! Lucy Coe is one of my all time fave soap characters! Log in to Reply JasamForever November 2, 2012 YAYYYYY!!!!!!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: No one does the Nurses Ball like Lucy Coe. I have to say this though, ALL these vet returns are really making me nervous about the future of GH. :Sp Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 November 2, 2012 Really enjoyed her stint as Henry’s mom on ATWT. Her interaction with the late AH’s James Stenbeck was delicious. Ironically, SD was there too, around the same time as (another irony), a mob family connection to JP’s Janet. I think, though, Lucy has been her best role, cunning and glamourous. Just what’s needed to run Crimson while Kate-Con is otherwise occupied. To say nothing of the Nurses’Ball… 0:) Log in to Reply Tris Drake November 2, 2012 Whoo hoo! But now I’m convinced all this is a last hurrah. Log in to Reply TV Gord November 2, 2012 There sure are a lot of Coe-dependent people on this board! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 November 2, 2012 YES!!! Great news. I was kind of expecting it after her name was brought up in yesterday’s episode.

Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott November 2, 2012 I love how JFP used to say no for the Nurses Ball but Frank and Ron are able to do it. :beer: Log in to Reply Yoryla November 2, 2012 *Breaks out the bubbly* WOHOOOOOO! This is THIRD best person I could hope for to return to GH (after Laura and Audrey). Welcome Home, Lucy!!! Log in to Reply nysam November 2, 2012 After a chaotic week in NYC with Hurricane Sandy I’m happy that Hurricane Lucy is hitting Port Charles! Her return brings a smile to my face. It would only be better if she brought Sigmund or Sigmund Jr. with her! Log in to Reply stoney07 November 2, 2012 Hmm…I’m glad to see Lucy return….but good lawd!!!! What in the world is the budget…all these returns and no firings? LOLOL. Not to mention the nurse’s ball. Well, I guess these people aren’t contracted players so it doesnt matter. And hey, as a viewer, it makes for good TV, so the economical side of it doesn’t matter to me. I’ll keep watching and enjoying Log in to Reply Scooter Smith November 2, 2012 I only knew her from watching Port Charles (before the Vampires hit). But I loved her, and enjoyed her as Henry’s mom on ATWT. I am hoping this isn’t a two week stint for the Nurse’s Ball, but they at least get her to be recurring. I think that making General Hospital more like its hey day can only be a good thing. So glad that they were smart enough to bring Cartini over to GH. Log in to Reply bishbay November 2, 2012 Scooter, your avatar is the stupidest thing I’ve seen on this site since the worst of the comments defending Melissa Reeves. Don’t cry too hard next week when Mittens gets his ass handed to him. Best, bishbay Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon November 2, 2012 My favorite GH character of all time!!!!!! Log in to Reply nysam November 2, 2012 Some comments question how so many names are coming back and how GH’s budget can afford them all. Remember this isn’t the 1980s or even 90s. Soap stars don’t get paid as much as they used to. Many have taken pay cuts so I’m guessing that Robin M,Stuart, Lynn, Sean, Wally etc. aren’t getting what they made back in the day. Several actors are probably just happy to be back working on TV since several haven’t been seen in a few years. never underestimate that some people work because they enjoy it and it isn’t all about the money. Many of the returnign actors had careers spanning 20+ years so they have made enough money. Now it is probably about the experience. Let’s also not forget that Steve Burton was the second highest paid actor on the show behind Maurice Bernard. The amount of money being saved on his salary certainly frees up enough cash to get Tristan back for 3 months, Lynn Herring for a few episodes. Also having actors return that aren’t on contract means they don’t have a weekly guarantee that they definitely get paid. They only get paid when the show chooses to use them. Thsi saves money as well. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon November 2, 2012 Imagine the possibilities if Maurice gets fired. Log in to Reply samIShot November 2, 2012 Imagine the possibilities if Maurice gets fired. ____ Laura Spencer? Scott Baldwin? Jax? Nikolas? Log in to Reply JasamForever November 2, 2012 But the only thing, with all these returns, who is going to be left for the 50th anniversary? Log in to Reply timepass November 2, 2012 Great news :beer: Log in to Reply Mets82 November 2, 2012 Im anticpating it. I dont remember too much of Lucy Coe on GH and I didnt watch Port Charles but from what I saw she was good. Glad shes coming back as GH is bringing there core characters back. Log in to Reply really November 2, 2012 [quote=SoapArmageddon]Imagine the possibilities if Maurice gets fired. ;)[/quote] Or if the rumors are true and MB and LW are both let go, my God the budget that would be opened up. Ned Laura Keesha Lois Brooklyn Dillon Log in to Reply Cyberologist November 2, 2012 Happy for Jamey! He loves him some Lucy Coe. Log in to Reply wiggum November 2, 2012 Awesome news! It seems obvious to me that the TPTB at GH now understand what GH fans want to see(hell we’ve seen more of Monica in the past month than the last 4 years combined!)so I don’t understand when people say Ron and Frank are destroying GH. Log in to Reply Angie Lucy November 3, 2012 WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hallelujah! Thank you, thank you, thank you Cartini for bringing my girl home. Lucy Coe is one of my favorite characters of all time. Yes, yes, YES!!!!! Log in to Reply SoapyBitch November 3, 2012 Has JFP ever explained why she did away with the Nurse’s Ball? Just not her vision? I wonder if this will dovetail with Robin’s rescue… Log in to Reply keanna November 3, 2012 Yeah, things keep getting better for GH! Log in to Reply LoracNJ November 3, 2012 OMG YES!!!! Thank you thank you. I have been waiting for them to bring her back since they started brining back the vets. She was always one of my fav characters. I hope Lynn stays for a while and it won’t be just for the nurses ball. How about letting Lucy run Crimson. I can only imagine the scenes between Lucy and Todd. Now what would be awesome is if Sabrina turned out to be Serena Baldwin. Log in to Reply doctormo77 November 3, 2012 Shake the tambourines because Lucy Coe is coming back! [quote=LoracNJ]Now what would be awesome is if Sabrina turned out to be Serena Baldwin.[/quote] I am also hoping that Sabrina turns out to be Serena Baldwin. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 November 3, 2012 Thank You RON C and Frank V. for bringing back the vets. Love Lucy Coe. She had the most fantastic figure and loved her clothes. Erica Kane but SO MUCH better! This is the GH I once loved so much. Log in to Reply tylerbo20 November 4, 2012 This is the best news ever… Laura/Scotty/Sean/Tiffany better be next… Log in to Reply GHvetfan November 5, 2012 Lucy Coe should never have been set aside for the silly mob crap. Log in to Reply brettyboy November 5, 2012 How big is GH’s casting budget????? Not that I’m complaining! Log in to Reply Yoryla November 6, 2012 brettyboy – I’m hearing Frank Valentini is an expert on saving and allocating money correctly. He has been described as the kind of guy who comes into work first in the morning and leaves the last at night. So I’m betting he really does his homework on which expenses are needed and which ones are not. From what I am seeing on my TV screen – amazing work.
