Soaps started picking up the pace on their storylines years ago, but one couple that’s being given the slow burn treatment on General Hospital is Spencer and Trina. Their portrayers, Nicholas Alexander Chavez and Tabyana Ali, recently chatted about the duo’s future at a press conference.

General Hospital — Meet the Press

GH cast members gathered in Pasadena, Calif., earlier this month for a press conference to tout the show’s upcoming 60th anniversary. There, Chavez and Ali were asked if their characters might be getting their first on-screen smooch in early 2023. It’s certainly something #Sprina supporters would love to see!

“That’s all you, dear,” Chavez said to his castmate, graciously letting her take the question. Ali said that she feels the “slow burn” is necessary to telling a great love story. “There’s something about the tension that draws in the audience, and I think that’s also a reason why [GH] is bringing in more audience — because of the tension and because of the pacing of it.

“Especially in [this] day and age where relationships happen so quickly,” Ali continued, “I think it’s really nice to see two people, two young people, two interracial people that love each other, try to get closer with one another and also try to jump over the barriers that are created, not only just from them, but from their environment. And they learn how to work through it together.”

Also at the press conference, Chavez, who joined GH in 2020, was asked about how he acclimated to working on the ABC soap opera. “I had no preconceived notions about what this show was or what filling this kind of role would look like,” the actor shared. “I didn’t watch the show or any other soap opera before I came on.

“But I will say that my ability to adapt to this fast-paced environment is due in very, very large part to the people who I’m surrounded by, both the veteran actors and actresses, who have been so generous with their knowledge in handing down their experience and talent and wisdom,” Chavez adds. “And then, also, that of the writers, who have been so courteous to me in terms of catching me up on 60 years of soap opera history.”
