Tabyana Ali made her daytime debut on the Friday, March 25 episode of “General Hospital” as Trina Robinson. She replaced Sydney Mikayla in the role and is appearing on contract with the soap.

In her first scenes, Ali interacted with Brook Kerr who plays Trina’s mom, Portia, and Réal Andrews who plays Trina’s dad, Marcus Taggert. Moments before Trina appeared on screen as played by Ali, Portia and Taggert were discussing the recent Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Cameron (William Lipton) drama and whether it was a “sex tape” or “revenge porn.” In reality, they were most concerned about their daughter being accused by Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl) of being the one to not only film the video itself but to also have been the one to share it on social media. The accusation has caused a rift between Trina and her friends. Cameron and Josslyn have since filed a police report on the matter with the hope that the person responsible gets caught. Considering Esme is the one behind everything, it’s only a matter of time before she gets found out, or, if she covered her tracks right, the wrong person will take the fall from a legal perspective, too.

In follow-up scenes, Trina walks into class at PCU (Port Charles University) where Josslyn and Cameron had been conversing. After exchanging a few words, the group hugs it out before Cameron leaves to give Trina and Josslyn some time alone to talk. During their conversation, Josslyn reassures Trina that she doesn’t blame her for anything and they both know that Esme is behind everything. While she’s not sure if Esme intended to film her and Cameron having sex, Josslyn is sure that Esme ultimately wanted to draw a wedge between her and Trina.

Sadly, by the episode’s end, Trina and Josslyn are interrupted by Commissioner Ashford (Tanisha Ashford) who tells Trina she’d like to have her come in for questioning over the tape after she received a tip that could place Trina as the culprit.

In an Instagram story, Ali was asked what it was like shooting her first scenes with Kerr and Andrews. She said, “It was amazing! They honestly made it so easy for me! I always enjoy working with them.”

Asked if she was nervous at all, Ali said, “Of course! But it was the ‘GH’ cast and crew that made me feel at ease!”

Watch some of Ali’s first scenes below and let us know what you think of the storyline in the comments.

I like that they put a week space in between Sydney's last appearance (which I'm currently watching) and Tabyana's first appearance. Reminiscent of how recasts used to be done.


And on contract? Interesting.


So far...I do think it will take a bit to get used to her. There's hints of potential there and a lot of her inflections are similar to Sydney's. So interested in where it goes.
