When Brook Lynn was hospitalized after having her throat slashed, she used a tablet to communicate. According to Lane that was a tricky proposition, “because instead of memorizing lines, I had to memorize by cues.”
But she notes that it was almost a gift because she didn’t have to memorize words. “But using the iPad was a little tricky,” because the lines were preprogrammed in and she had to be careful not to get ahead of herself on the screen. “So there were some technical challenges there!”

She also gave a shout-out to her costars Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero who play her onscreen dad Ned Quartermaine and stepmom Olivia Falconeri, respectively. They all shared some very emotional scenes following Brook Lynn’s attack and according to Lane, LoCicero especially is adept at turning on the waterworks. “I mean she’s just an extraordinary actor,” she says. “She can cry in, like, 2.5 seconds, and then be laughing in the next scene!”
She notes that in real life LoCicero is hilarious and the two ladies shared some powerful scenes in which Olivia tried to convince her stepdaughter to give her father another chance.
