Some fans might be surprised to learn that Trina on GENERAL HOSPITAL is not a new character, though she looks a bit different than the last time she was on the soap! Josslyn, Cameron, and Oscar’s friend is now being played by Sydney Mikayla, although when she originally appeared in a few episodes in 2017 and 2018, she was played by Tiana Le!
Trina was introduced back on June 23, 2017 when she took over the party that Josslyn threw when her mom was out of town. Josslyn was concerned when Trina made sure alcohol was provided and invited a bunch of boys over, but was happy to learn one of those boys was the one she liked, Oscar. (Who you’ll remember also looked a bit different back then!) The character made a return appearance in March of 2018 at Oscar and Josslyn’s special “alternative prom” party that took a deadly turn when the earthquake struck Port Charles, putting lives in danger!
Trina returned in the Feb. 20, 2019, episode looking like a new person as she planned a trip to Niagara Falls with Josslyn, Oscar, and Cameron. When they gave Joss and Oscar a room to themselves, Cameron was nervous sharing with Trina, mentioning her reputation as a party girl. Trina assured Cam that was all talk and promised she wasn’t into him. This party then also took a tragic turn when Oscar suffered another seizure!
The new Trina, Sydney Mikayla, might look familiar to some viewers as she starred as Olive on the Nickelodeon series SCHOOL OF ROCK, based on the hit film. She also appeared as the young Gabby in the Lifetime movie, The Gabby Douglas Story as well as making guest appearances in shows like CRIMINAL MINDS, HOT IN CLEVELAND, and FULLER HOUSE.
Stay tuned to see if Trina continues to be involved in the teen drama in Port Charles, and for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
