Alan-Michael Spaulding and Lucy Cooper were a truly beautiful couple. I remember watching them as a young girl and falling…HARD. If I had a soap “first love” couple than LAM would certainly be one of the top contenders for that title. From the minute Alan-Michael almost ran Lucy over with his car I knew she would be perfect for him. She was gutsy, honest, and subtle mix of innocent optimism along with being a bit of a blacksheep outsider like he was. She was such a breath of fresh air for Alan-Michael. After years of fighting his father and the rest of his family for Spaulding, fighting for Eleni and losing, he needed the light she brought into his life.
There were websites dedicated to them back in the 90s but these websites have been either abandoned or no longer exist. I could have created another website for them but 1. I really have no desire to run two websites and 2. I am afraid that if I did one or the other would fall by the wayside. So thus, Alan-Michael and Lucy will be housed under the “Inside the Light section”. It is my hope that by archiving them here (a place I have no intention of abandoning any time soon) Alan-Michael and Lucy fans will once again have a place to go to revisit some great LAM memories. And perhaps, LAM is just one of many couples that will become an ITL feature….
