Of course they love Spencer and Trina, but playing these characters would be a fun change of pace.

Things will finally be heating up for Tabyana Ali and Nicholas Alexander Chavez’s characters, Trina Robinson and Spencer Cassadine, now that the latter has finally been sprung from prison. The two actors love their characters and the sparks between them — but that doesn’t mean they haven’t thought about other folks in Port Charles.

Nicholas Alexander Chavez & Tabyana Ali Reflect

Ali and Chavez recently spent an evening with a few hundred “Sprina” fans at a Coastal Entertainment Zoom event. One attendee, Susie, shared how much she loves him in scenes with Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) and her in scenes with Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) but then she asked — if they could play any other character on General Hospital, who would it be and why? Chavez encouraged Ali to go first.

“Honestly, I would love to play Miss Ava Jerome,” confided Ali. “That’s a woman with spice…or Ms. Lydia Look’s character [Selina Wu] but I think Ava. I would love to play her. There’s something so powerful and sensual about her and, like, the way she can get the things that she wants with just a look or even certain things says, the way she says it, the way she enunciates her words. I just love it so I would love it if I could play Ava.”

“I would have to say the moss on Carly’s counter,” deadpanned Nicholas Alexander Chavez. “The moss just brings certain energy, that I try to emulate in everything that I do. I’m so captivated by that moss’s work. Yes, Moss Corinthos is the character I would most like to play.”

“That’s a good character choice,” agreed Ali. “I didn’t even think of it.” The answer got a lot of laughs in the online chatroom for the event and who could blame folks? After all, Moss has shown to have longevity, always looks great in a closeup, and gets to hear everyone’s secrets.
