Sydney Mikayla Makes Decision to Exit General Hospital

Sprina fans received a bit of a gut-punch today, with the reports and then confirmation that Sydney Mikayla has decided to leave her role as Trina Robinson on General Hospital.

Mikayla, who became very popular as part of the teen scene and her budding on-screen love story with Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer Cassadine), has decided to leave the ABC daytime drama to focus on college.  Sydney is currently a freshman at UCLA.

In a statement, Frank Valentini (EP, General Hospital) told Soap Opera Digest on Mikayla’s departure: “Sydney asked to leave in order to focus on college. We love her and are sad to see her go, but of course support her decision and wish her the best.”

Sydney then told SOD: “I have loved working on General Hospital, but I feel like this is the right time to dive in and enjoy my college experience to the fullest. The cast has become family and bringing the character of Trina to life has been one of the best experiences of my career thus far. Thank you to Frank and the entire team for believing in me and giving me this wonderful opportunity. I will miss working with everyone every day, but I am excited to see what is to come for the show.”

Look for Mikayla to last air as Trina on the upcoming March 17th episode.  Then, later in the month the NuTrina, actress Tabyana Ali (pictured above), will take over the role.

Can’t blame her for making her education a priority… I just hope she gets to wrap up her storylines before the recast takes over…. like the obvious poorly kept secret that Curtis is her real dad… and this whole impending disaster with Ryan Jr… uh…Esme framing her for the Cam/Joss “sex tape” that Trina couldn’t have possibly filmed because she was passed out from Esme’s drugs at the time.

The recast shouldn’t be the one who gets to act this all out. Nor would she probably want to walk in to the middle of all that.

This young lady was a really good actor. Her along with the actors who play Cam, Spenser and Joss all have such great chemistry. Its going to be tough to recast her role and to fit in with the young talent they have.

I wish Sydney the best!! She is an exceptional young actress and I’m going to miss her on screen. She has a great future ahead of her and hope she enjoys her college experience. Selfishly, I’m going to miss her with the great teens and acting opposite Maura West because they all had such great chemistry together.

Going to miss you a ton! The GH young cast is truly amazing. Reminds me of Phillip, Beth, Rick, and Mindy on Guiding Light circa 1983, but very relevant for 2022.
