Lynn Herring

Biography

She played the enigmatic, bookish librarian Lucy Coe in General Medical center. She was Miss Virginia in her teenagers, and runner up in the Miss USA competition in 1977. Her General Medical center personality shifted from drab to sexy, manipulative to devoted, and while no-one knew what things to label of her, supporters had been intrigued and asked the manufacturers to help keep her on the present. She acquired two sons with hubby and professional Wayne Northrop, both settling within a ranch-style house within a secluded rural section of LA. Michael T. Weiss was her co-star on Times of Our Lives.
