The actress tells Soap Opera Digest that the alter ego she originally took on back in 1986 will be spending much more time in Port Charles. "I said to [our executive producer, Frank Valentini], 'When you have something interesting, I'll definitely be back; the Nurses Ball isn't the end of Lucy, it just may not be right away [that she's seen again]," she teases.
As for what storyline might come, she says, "I'm hopeful that Lucy can be involved in what's going on between Kevin [Jon Lindstrom] and Laura [Genie Francis]. I think that could be very juicy and interesting and fun, with so much history between all characters."
