Tabyana Ali Makes Her Debut As General Hospital’s New Trina

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s, March 25th episode of General Hospital, brought with it the on-screen debut of Tabyana Ali as Trina Robinson.  As viewers know, Ali replaced popular actress Sydney Mikayla in the role.

Mikayla had decided to leave the ABC daytime drama series to go to college full-time.  With that, GH auditioned her replacement and Tabyana won the part.

In her debut episode, Ali was thrown into the mix with key characters and actors in Trina’s storyline including parents, Portia (Brook Kerr) and Marcus Taggert (Réal Andrews).

Additionally, Tabyana appeared opposite, Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), where Trina gave the guy a giant brush-off, and later had a run-in with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Cameron (William Lipton) over everyone believing Trina is responsible for the video showing Joss and Cam making love going viral and in the their classroom.  Of course, the audience knows Esme (Avery Pohl) is framing Trina for it.

So, what were your first impressions of Tabyana as NuTrina? Let us know in the comment section, but first check out Ali in scenes with Eden McCoy below.

These are TOUGH shoes to fill. I thought she did well the first day, though a little soft for Trina. I think she’ll do okay if the writers don’t dumb her down. But I’ll really miss Sydney M. regardless.

I agree, but her little baby voice kind of gets on my nerves. Also, again am still not liking nuJordan, too haughty. Maybe she’ll soften some.

I – finally – had my take, last Friday episode 3/18… when the whole show focused on two upchuck “story” 1. Esme , why do they show characters, so desperate, especially, since these were words, you’d never hear ???? she hit rock bottom, with that episode w/Spencer… Another , can you shut her up? she’s neither emoting… a desperation, or pathetic… it’s just not cylinder… showing barely any facial expression.. so not worthy .shooting blanks nonstop 2ndly . Jeepers… watching Laura Wright w/Drew on the bridge !!! as they attempted a “playful attempt” at come hithers…. “you’d do that for… Read more »

She stepped right in, strong self assured Trina wasn’t coming through yet. IMO she will be fine. and did well. But she is gonna need that intelligent and tough edge to get past Esme. I just wish she could realize she was drugged by Esme that night.

I was thinking the same thing. I bet you when Esme is found out, and she will be, she will spill her guts and be more than willing to brag about everything she’s done. I am just wondering who she’ll blame as to why she did all this or will she proudly say it was her dear old dad.

With her mom being a doctor, you would think it would cause a red flag to black out after one drink. Plus her dad was an undercover cop…. Also I can’t wait until they reveal that her dad is actually Curtis.

It’s really tough to replace an actress who was so well-liked, be thrown right in the middle of a major storyline, AND interact with so many different characters on your debut. But I thought Tabyana did a fantastic job right from the jump, and seems to have chemistry with all the other characters. It seems like the GH casting department has done it again!

Tabyana did a great introductory episode, and definitely will miss Sydney, but so excited for her future. GH has definitely got a great young cast with lots of options for stories to be explored. I hope that Y and R can figure it out (aka Faith and Moses, etc.) for it is called YOUNG and the RESTLESS for a reason. And B and B does not even have any kids around to even SORAS unless Douglas (who is fantastic) and Kelly and Beth…

She is no Sydney(who was incredible in the role) but she’s better than the new Jordan. I hope Sydney changes her my and comes back, she and Nicholas Chavez were great together.

she, also, clearly, had chemistry with Cameron… before the writers , balked, and took that away, from Trina… and all of a sudden, it was back to Joss and Cameron… WTF ??? NEW Jordan is already setting fire !!!! Shawn, was in to her… so weren’t we

okay did I miss her interacting w/ Spencer? what? I saw her debut acting opposite her parents, then Joslyn and cam then it finished w/ Jordan coming to question her, where and when did she have scenes with Spencer ?

Michael your smoking something or your getting extended scenes from GH that the rest of us are not, I went back to rewatch the episode and no flashbacks or scenes w/ nutrina w/ Spencer, he just got out of lock up so I’m not crazy,.

I noticed it was shown in bits and pieces, really odd, but she went to see Spencer for about five minutes, than to school and than PCPD, wierd.

I think she did a great job capturing the spirit of Trina and putting her own stamp on her, as well. Great job!

She is a lovely young lady, hopefully the “powerfull Trina” emerges more in the weeks to come. The arrest outrage was a little weak on the episode when she was arrested.

I am pleasantly surprised by how much I like her right away! I absolutely ADORE Sydney Mikayla and am disappointed she has left the show but I understand her reasons. Tabyana Ali is a bit softer than Sydney in the role – Sydney has a fierceness about her, a no nonsense sensibility. But I found Trina and Joss’s scene quite effective on Friday and her scenes with Jordan, Portia, Curtis, and Taggert were all very good. I want to see what her chemistry is like with Chavez’s Spencer – sometimes the chemistry is there with a recast and other times… Read more »

She’s feeling out the role doing okay but would like to see some of the stronger Trina attitude back defending herself.The emotion is missing.

On another note: the new Jordan HAS got to loosen up those skinny legged pants. Not what I’d want to see on the PC of PCPD to the point of inappropriate?!

I don’t like the new Jordan. Esme character is just to unreal. Time for the truth to come out.

Now that Sonny has Spinelli looking into the “sex tape” thing, NuTrina won’t have to be worried for long. And with any luck, Spinelli might also stumble on to an electronic paper trail which discloses who Esme’s actual parents are. We already know Ryan is her father. Still say Harmony is her mother, since we now know she’s also a confirmed psycho killer. Great genetics there, huh?

Violet Lemm

Her actual parents and her adoptive parents, and what she may/probably have done to them. We know that Harmony is not Willows mother and I don’t really think she is Esme’s. Also, I’m wondering if she was forced somehow to kill Neil? Did she have a motive of her own, or was she being used?

Between Curtis’s father and Auntie Stella the new house party was a bust.Good thing there are two doctors there for Stella. Iam confused, I thought when Sonny saw
Marshall’s medicine bottle at the hospital he recognised it as being what he takes himself for his Bi-Poler disorder but today he told Stella it was his heart meds ??

Spencer and Trina at the gallery should be pretty exciting. It will be explosive when these two finally ” get together” and we know it’s only a matter of time. It will not only be monumental for them but Esme will explode into a million pieces when she finds out. I also think she will try seducing Nickolas if she can.

I miss Sydney a lot. She owns that role and plays it to a “T” and the new Jordan just doesn’t work for me either. Maybe in time I will feel different about them, but right now they both stink.

When is Esme going to get her just desert? This story line is dragging on too long. It’s time all the dirt comes out about what she did, who her father is and what she’s up to so that Trina and Spencer can get together and Esme can join her father.

I don’t like the new Trina. Trina was strong and confident. The new Trina is timid and seems insecure. She needs to step up her game or find someone else.

Violet Lemm

Our new Trina looks small and lost with her friends and seems to be not getting her friend Joss at all. Today, she just looms over Trina and is it that time of the month or has she always been this overpowering and bitchy? Another Carly in the making?

Oh Violet, I felt sadly the same yesterday. Finally a good dramatic scene was underway with Joss confronting Spencer with Cam about to intervene…and Trina looked adrift. Her expression and body language didn’t match the others or even the events. For the second time since her debut, I’m starting to worry about losing interest in what could still be a compelling character. Not sure what should be done…But something needs to change. Now.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.
