Sydney Mikayla made her final appearance as Trina Robinson, Jossyln’s (Eden McCoy) best friend, on March 17. The actress, who took over the role of Trina in 2019, chose to exit the soap to pursue her college studies at UCLA. The role has already been recast with daytime newcomer Tabyana Ali, who will begin airing later this month.
Sewell Whitney wrapped up his stint as the records’ keeper who assisted Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Felicia Jones (Kristina Wagner) in Austria. Also, Paul Ganus met his demise as Victor Cassadine’s (Charles Shaughnessy) cohort in crime, Kurt. The character committed suicide by swallowing a cyanide capsule.
GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running soap is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running serial, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.

From legendary Laura’s (Genie Francis) many decades on and off and back on as the show’s leading heroine to Anna Devane’s (Finola Hughes) exploits to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH certainly knows how to please its viewers.
It is one of four soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives (DOOL), The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
