Ava and Grace Scarola, the pint-sized dynamos who delight General Hospital fans and actors alike, have a very special milestone to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Ava and Grace Scarola!
And that’s because they were born on April 26, 2014, which means that this adorable acting duo is turning 8 years old today! The sisters were but tiny infants when they joined the cast of General Hospital, where they take turns playing the role of Avery Corinthos — the daughter of mobster Sonny Corinthos and the equally formidable Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West).
Since their debut in December 2014, the two have been the epicenter of a long-running custody war between their feuding parents, and they’ve been featured in some mighty powerful storylines, including losing their grandfather, Mike Corbin (Max Gail), to Alzheimer’s, their sister, Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) to a serial killer, and even their father who was presumed dead after he fell from a suspension bridge for nine months.
Outside of their work on the lone ABC soap, the twins remain booked and busy via primetime programs and film. Last year alone, they appeared in 911: Lone Star and The Missing Twin.
Their other credits include episodes of the CBS All Access dramedy Why Women Kill and the ABC serial Grand Hotel. The latter starred the little actresses’ former GH co-star Bryan Craig, who played their half-brother Morgan Corinthos from 2013 to 2016.
Two years ago, due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID 19, the twins had to forgo a long-anticipated trip to Disney, and instead greet their sixth year during a swimming party with immediate family. Here’s hoping that their latest party is equally as exciting and safe!
