General Hospital Spoilers: Lynn Herring Opens Up About Lucy’s Demise

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Lynn admits that she didn’t really know much about her character’s death and how the writers were going to do. In fact, she was completely in the dark until she managed to get a script in her hands. She said, “Frank [Valentini, executive producer] just came and said, ‘Hey, Lucy gets shot,’ and I went, ‘What?! This can’t be good!’ And he goes, ‘No, no, she doesn’t die, but there’s a lot that goes on,’ and that’s all he told me. So when the stunt guy came to explain how I’m going take these hits, they didn’t tell me right away that it was rubber bullets. And then they said, ‘You have to fall in the water,’ and I thought, ‘Okay, this is looking dark. It’s a little bit intense,’ because I wasn’t sure [Lucy lived]. They had Finola [Hughes, Anna, pull the trigger] in the hat with the drone footage and the cameras, but it was so ambiguous that it was very easy to play that this is my last [scene].”

Lynn continued, “They kept it just interesting enough for us because even Finola wasn’t sure exactly how this was gonna come out and we didn’t know about going on the run or hiding or anything. So it was very serious that day. And I thought, ‘Boy, this could go any which way; I’m not sure what we’re going for here,’ but that helped me play falling in the water and really taking the hit. And then when Frank ended up saying, ‘You guys, it’s gonna be great, you’re kind of on the run and you’re hiding,’ I just didn’t realize how long I was hiding. In the back of my mind, I had a little thing like, ‘Uh-oh, am I hiding until the Nurses’ Ball?’ It kind of scared me because I thought, ‘This is an interesting way to have folks pull together for the Nurses’ Ball with Lucy in trouble.’”

Lynn also says that she loved the fact that the shooter was Holly. She said, “I thought it was great because I didn’t understand how they were going to pay that off. I didn’t remember that she had a son and I didn’t remember the connection with Victor at all, so I thought it was great, and especially to bring back another character that the audience loved — they love Emma [Samms, Holly], so that worked out so great, to have it be her.”
