Congratulations to the talented Brooklyn Rae Silzer, who is celebrating her seventh anniversary playing Emma on GENERAL HOSPITAL! “Seven years ago I got the best news that I was cast to be Emma Scorpio Drake on GH!” she shared on Instagram. “I was in preschool then and now off to junior high!
“I am so grateful that I have been able to grow up on the show,” Silzer continued. “Thanks so much to the loving cast, crew, writers of GH, and the amazing fans who have been on this adventure with me! Super blessed to be loved and nurtured from everyone, especially Jason Thompson (ex-Patrick; Billy, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), Kimberly McCullough (Robin), and Finola Hughes (Anna). Love you to the moon and back!”

Emma Grace Scorpio-Drake was born on GH to Robin and Patrick Drake in November of 2008, but it wasn’t until July 29, 2011, that Silzer made her debut in the role and made it her own. Much like on-screen mom McCullough, Silzer has been allowed to grow up naturally right in front of the camera, and has not been stricken with a serious case of SORAS and recast with a teenage actor.
Although Emma left with her parents in January of 2016 when Patrick and Robin were married and written off the soap, she has returned occasionally since then, usually for the annual Nurses Ball, but occasionally for other scenes like helping grandma Anna with some spy stuff!
