BREAKING NEWS: Lynn Herring Joins ATWT; "GH Never Called"
TVGuide Magazine has the exclusive news. As The World Turns has cast General Hospital, Port Charles and DAYS alum Lynn Herring (ex-Lucy Coe, GH/PC; ex-Lizanne, DAYS) as Audrey "the gold-digging mother of cut-up Henry Coleman (Trent Dawson). She hits the air July 24."
Do you have any idea how badly people have wanted you back on the soap scene? It’s been too long.
I have missed it so much, but GH has never called. Eventually I figured, “Well, OK, I guess I’m outta that role.” That’s why it was such a compliment to get the phone call from [ATWT exec producer] Chris Goutman. I guess I really needed to get back to work. I’d find myself creating soap-opera scenarios in my mind while I was out on the hill feeding the cows. “Hmm…that flirty red one sure looks like she likes the bull today…” When you start doing that you know it’s time to start acting again.
Herring will have a six to eight week run on the CBS sudser. Be sure to check out the entire interview as she reveals her interest in the roll of Jill on The Young and the Restless during Jess Walton's tense contract talks and how she feels about General Hospital never picking up the proverbial phone.
Fans of GH and Port Charles may get a little excited about a possible Lucy-Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) reunion as Lindstrom is currently on ATWT in the role of Craig Montgomery.
