There isn’t much for General Hospital’s Josslyn Jacks to celebrate – what with her still mourning all of her losses including stepfather Sonny Corinthos and her pal Dev as well as her friendship with Cam being strained – but luckily the same can’t be said for her portrayer, Eden McCoy.
Happy Birthday, Eden McCoy
That’s because she was born on June 10, 2003, in Los Angeles, California, which means that this talented younger actress is turning 18 years old today! McCoy was discovered by a talent scout during the summer she spent at a theater camp.
That led to subsequent work in print campaigns and commercials for businesses like Wells Fargo and products like Valpak coupons. Her first professional credit was the feature film, Perfect Man.
McCoy has guest-starred in episodes of Scary Tales, The Thundermans, Game Shakers, and Walk the Prank. And she has also appeared in the short films Hit the Hitman, Cookies & Crime, and Lit, as well as the made-for-TV movie The Nerd Posse and the film, Stay Tuned: The Movie.
On October 14, 2015, McCoy joined the cast of General Hospital and assumed the role of Josslyn Jacks, daughter of Jasper “Jax” Jacks (IngoRademacher) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), replacing incumbent Hannah Nordberg and becoming the seventh overall actress to play the part.
For her work on the series, McCoy was nominated for a 47th Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Younger Actress. Like her fictional counterpart, McCoy is an avid volleyball player and she is verbally committed to play for the USC Women’s Beach Volleyball team for the class of 2025.
