General Hospital fans have watched Brooklyn Rae Silzer grow up before their eyes and it’s hard to believe how long she’s been playing Emma Scorpio Drake, a true Port Charles legacy character.
Congratulations Brooklyn Rae Silzer
Silzer was just 5 years old when she first made an appearance as Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) and Patrick Drake’s (Jason Thompson) little girl and was an immediate hit with her precocious and adorable little face.
Well, that tiny girl is a teenager now. At age 14, she’s ready to start high school in the fall and this past weekend she celebrated a Port Charles milestone with a tweet illustrating just how much she’s grown.
“Happy 9yr. Anniversary to me playing Emma Scorpio Drake on @GeneralHospital. It has been a dream come true to grow up on this show and I am forever grateful to the cast, crew, writers, producers, & fans for all the love,” the young actress said.
With the tweet, she also posted a photo of herself on her first day at the studio with her GH identification tag. Alongside it is a more current photo with that same nametag, taken in what we presume is her backyard as nobody has been to the GH studio in months due to the coronavirus crisis.
Sadly, we don’t see Emma as often as we used to even when new episodes are airing as the character lives in California with her parents now. However, it’s often a treat to see her back in Port Charles when she makes that trek across the country to visit her grandparents, Anna (Finola Hughes) and Robert (Tristan Rogers).
Soap Hub wishes Silzer a very happy anniversary with the soap and hope to see her on-screen again soon. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
