‘General Hospital‘ fans have definitely noticed Lynn Herring’s absence on the ABC soap opera – it has been nearly a year since Herring’s character Lucy Coe was spotted in Port Charles. Concerned fans have been questioning Lucy’s absence on Lynn’s Facebook page – and the actress finally released a statement regarding her status on the ABC soap opera. Sadly, it doesn’t look like we will be seeing Lucy again any time soon, unless the ‘GH‘ writers cook up a juicy storyline for the actress.
Herring explained that she would love to be a regular on the ‘General Hospital‘ cast again – key word being “regular.” She made it pretty clear that she had no intention of returning to the ABC soap opera for a few scenes, she wants a real storyline for her character Lucy Coe.
Herring stated, “I am loving ranching and Museum-ing (is that a word?) right now. I do miss playing Lucy but I am not interested in a line here or there or a day once in awhile.” Lynn went on to say, “If Frank and the writers need Lucy for a story or a firm connection in the show then I will jump out of my saddle and come running for sure.” The soap star also indicated that if there is another Nurse’s Ball – she would definitely be interested in coming back to Port Charles to host it once again.
Lynn Herring has been a member of the ‘General Hospital’ family since 1986 – Lucy exited the daytime drama in 2004. However, the actress began making brief appearances off and on again in 2012.
