Big changes in soaps

WOW! Some big names coming back to daytime. Unfortunately, they are big losses for General Hospital. First, the one I am most excited about is Lynn Herring's return to daytime. She's coming to As the World Turns as Henry's mother. I'm glad Lynn will be back in daytime, but I really wish GH had snagged her to return as Lucy Coe. Can you imagine Lucy hitting Jake's with Diane and Alexis? That would be a total riot. Oh well.
Lynn will be reuniting with quite a few of her former Port Charles costars: Jon Lindstrom, Marie Wilson and Julie Pinson. Lynn will also be commuting from the west coast.
General Hospital's other loss is Wally Kurth. Yup, he's returning to Days of Our Lives as Justin Kiriakis. Am looking forward to that. Now let's hope Judi Evans returns as Adrienne. Probably not likely though since she has just signed up for a role on As the World Turns.
Rick Hearst is leaving General Hospital to reprise his role as Whip on The Bold & the Beautiful. Apparently, his character on General Hospital gets on an elevator and that's the last we see of him.
At least General Hospital grabbed powerhouse Martha Byrne.
Also coming to Days of Our Lives is Crystal Chappell. She will be reprising her role as Carly Manning. She was famous for the buried alive storyline back in the 90's. Good for Crystal as she would otherwise be out of a job once Guiding Light ends. Apparently Days approached her first.
In other news: Arianne Zucker and Kyle Lowder are expecting their first child. Congratulations to them!
