General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that a new actress is joining the cast – and she may look familiar to some soap fans out there. According to EW, Brook Kerr will is headed to General Hospital as a doctor at GH. Her first airdate is coming up on March 5, and she’ll undoubtedly have some interesting connections on canvas.
Before we get to those, let’s talk about where you might’ve seen Kerr before. Fans of NBC’s Passions will remember Kerr from her role as Whitney Russell Harris-Crane. Kerr played Whitney from 1999-2007, so she brings plenty of daytime drama experience to the table.
Of course, Kerr has also done some primetime work. General Hospital viewers might recognize Kerr from various guest spots on shows like CSI: Miami, True Blood, NCIS: Los Angeles, Westworld, Hawaii Five-0 and more. She’s a talented performer who’s sure to be a great addition to General Hospital.
Now let’s dive a little deeper and talk about who Kerr’s really playing. She’s more than just a random doc who’ll be treating patients. On Instagram, Kerr revealed that her character’s name is Dr. Portia Robinson, so that’s a helpful hint. GH watchers will recall another character with that same last name: Trina Robinson (Sydney Mikayla).
General Hospital spoilers, updates and news say more of Trina’s background will start to unravel. GH fans recently learned Trina’s father is Marcus Taggert (Real Andrews), so it’s probably time to meet her mother as well. There’s a good chance Portia Robinson is Trina Robinson’s mom, especially since first-look pics feature Portia at Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) gallery where Trina works.
Trina has become a fan favorite thanks to her quick wit and tendency to tell it like it is. She feels like the heart of the teen scene now – the glue that keeps them all together. It’s nice that General Hospital is giving Trina some family members and expanding her presence in town.
Some exciting stories should be told once Portia’s on the scene and fearful about how Taggert’s drama is affecting their daughter. Trina and Cameron Webber (William Lipton) are already in grave danger due to this mob battle, so it’ll be interesting to hear what Portia has to say about that.
General Hospital spoilers say the excitement will rev up, so stay tuned. Are you excited to see Brook Kerr’s debut as Dr. Portia Robinson? We’ll keep you posted as other news becomes available. Don’t miss all our fantastic General Hospital spoilers here at CDL!
