Lucy may have been reluctant to get involved in Anna and Valentin’s scheme to take down Victor on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but portrayer Lynn Herring was absolutely delighted to find herself getting mixed up in this particular storyline!
“This is the first fun and truthful and challenging section for Lucy in, you know, nine years,” the actress admitted to Soap Opera Digest. “So it’s amazing to have something to sink my teeth into. It is the most fun I’ve had in years. Working with Finola [Hughes, Anna] and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) and Charles Shaughnessy (Victor) is a hoot!”
And while Lucy was hesitant at first, as the scheme has progressed, she’s all in! “It’s almost like there’s a volcano that’s been dormant and they gave her only a little lava and off Lucy goes!” Herring joked. “I think the germination of her involvement with Victor was, ‘I want to help Martin,’ but that opened up the part about, ‘Wait a minute. I still have a lot of strengths here and I’m smart and I haven’t been using all my skills,’ which then turns to Lucy’s ego about using her wiles.
“It’s a two-edged sword,” she added, “because she feels like a strong, empowered woman, but then on the other side, she’s using her sexuality and her wiles, which isn’t always politically correct.”
Of course, as Lucy has become more and more entangled in Victor’s web, she has no idea of how much danger she could potentially be in… not that she’d change her mind anyway! “She is aware that she is putting herself in danger,” Herring allowed. “But right now, she is kind of running into the storm. She’s not unaware of the danger she’s putting herself in, but at this point, she thinks she can control anything. Which is wrong, but she thinks she can!”
Stay tuned to GH to see how the storyline unfolds and if Lucy can get the best of Victor or if it turns out to be the other way around!
