Courtesy/EMcCoyFacebook

On Wednesday’s upcoming episode of General Hospital, Josslyn will look different!  That’s because Eden McCoy has taken over the role of Carly (Laura Wright) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher) daughter, Josslyn.

McCoy replaces Hannah Nordberg, who has been working on other outside projects including the Dolly Parton TV bio-pic, Coat of Many Colors.

The young actress posted her excitement on her GH debut on her facebook page within the last 24 hours.  Eden stated: “I still can’t believe it but please watch me as Josslyn Jacks in my first episode of General Hospital on ABC Wednesday- very grateful to be a part of this amazing cast and show – much more to come – i love my GH family already!”

So, how will the new Josslyn fit into the Corinthos family drama and GH’s younger set?  Share your comments below as we welcome Eden to GH!

    Ha! I agree — not into Teenage stories. I can handle bits of Spencer but no romances with Emma or tween love affairs for me.

    TJ and Molly are in college now, hardly teenagers anymore

    First & second year college students are still teenagers.

    Mary SF replied

    College students are young adults, high school are teenagers in terms of soap stories; so Joss who is preteen or early teen will not be hanging out with college students which was suoo comments. IYes, technically eighteen and nineteen has the world teen in it, but soaps treat college age characters as adults.

    Benigno replied

    I’ve been watching soaps as a teen and I’m only 25 now. It would depend if teen-centric stories are compellingly relevant the way other soaps have done everywhere else: Boys Over Flowers, Hollyoaks, Neighbours, and so on and so forth.

    Have they sorased Spencer??? surely this older actress won’t be a ten year olds love interest..how creepy

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    did they age her…in the picture she still looks ten to me..lol

    davlestev1 replied

    She is now a teen ager as is the actress. .how in earth can they justify this. .Spencer and the portrayer are 10 years old add is emma..

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    she does look a little older when i watched today…i dont know why they would do that but ive seen some weird casting with no regard to age…on Edge Of Night 40something Nicole was suddenly 20something when they recast…on Days Will was born before his stepdad EJ who suddenly was older…they dont do this on my favorite British soap Coranation Street..their children age normally like in real life, and their stories are more like real life too…wish our soaps were like that.

    Timmm replied

    No aging Spencer! The kid is too talented.

    CeeCee replied

    Lol….how exciting, jimh! With their blond tresses and oh-so-light complexion, they do look the part.

    I’m hoping this means her father will be coming back as well!! We need Jasper Jacks back(Ingo)!!!

    I don’t know Jax, Robin. But, I’ve heard so much about him, I feel as if I do. I think it would be very appetizing if he did come back to PC and create some sort of devilish stir between Carly and Sonny. I would enjoy eating up that mess. Perhaps Jax will declare his undying love for Carly, sending Sonny into a fit of sputtering, stuttering and lisping galore.

    What about the kid romance with Josslyn and Cameron? Is he being aged as well? But then again, Spencer would definitely go for an older girl ;-)

    They should’ve saved her for the Spencer/Emma age group. Total mistake in casting/aging this character.

    They didn’t age her enough,she looks to be around 13,still to young to hang out with Molly and TJ.

    It’s ridiculous considering that little Jake’s supposed death helped to save a younger Josslyn. This was even talked about a couple months back when little Jake came back. So now they have to go and f*** that up.

    Here’s an idea…bring back Monica and have her file a civil lawsuit against Sonny for him being responsible for A.J.’s death. I’d like to see her go after him financially in every way possible and allow the courts to go through all of his business dealings. That would at least be a start to dismantling his little empire. After all, Monica has lost the most (Alan, Emily, AJ, Jason) due to Sonny’s association with the mob. It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out what could make a good story and it doesn’t have to resort to soras’ing a bunch of kids.

    Good point about Jake’s supposed death helping to save Josslyn. If not him, who and why?

    Love the idea of Monica filing a suit against Sonny. Who would be her lawyer…Alexis or Diane? She’d probably have to find another lawyer with no conflict of interests…maybe..since this is a soap. I guess her Judge boyfriend wouldn’t be able to sit on the bench to hear this case, but he could provide great legal advice during pillow talk.

    That works for me, Liam.
    Why do the fans have to do all the work? The writers could come up with these ideas on their own. LOL.

    Andrea replied

    Monica suing Sonny is actually a wonderful idea and would bring back the heart of this show. The Sonny propping for this little weasel is so awful and not interesting. Time to make a man out of Sonny once and for all! I love your idea!

    Reply

    Lia replied

    That’s a great idea Liam. Monica needs justice in some way, so hitting him in the pocket will suffice, until someone kills him.

    Reply

    su0000 replied

    IF, Monica filing a suit against Sonny all the skeletons would come out of the closet.
    AJ, was bad person. He shot his father in the back lol
    And– AJ was choking Ava with intent to kill her!
    Sonny had a bipolar moment, and AJ choking/strangling Ava was not cool lol ..

    remember; we knew AJ did not kill Connie, Sonny did not know, he was told AJ killed Connie/Kelly.. yah Sonny lost it taking care of business on man who how killed his love his wife to be..

    Ava, AJ and Sonny are even up, all are killers.. killers killing killers- even up!

    Good idea, Liam. This might get me watching GH again. This is week six without watching GH.

    So far we’ve seen more than a little rebellion and independence from Josslyn, and not much parenting on Carly’s part. So if Jax didn’t work wonders with her during the summer (and he wasn’t successful with Carly in the past), she just might give Morgan a run for his money in acting out. Wish they would bring Jax back. He could help the Q’s take back ELQ from Nik.

    I’m glad they recast the role. No offense to Hannah, but I couldn’t stand the 2014-2015 Josslyn. She used to be so nice to Franco and he was trying his best to be the best role model to her and all she wanted to do was to get rid of him just because he had a brian tumor that made him do horrible acts, acts he now regrets. I reallly hope they decide to redemm the character with this new Josslyn.

    Well, seeing that HN’s Joss was my favorite kiddo on this show, I’m none too thrilled….she just had that perfect “Bad Seed” attitude down pat…I guess with spooky “Little Jake” back, her prickly, persnickety personality was no longer as essential. Still, the fact that Joss is Carly’s offspring will mean that she’ll never be a proper miss, rather a real handful no matter the actress portraying her.

    With the age progression, what group is she supposed to fit in with? She’s too young for TJ/Molly and too old for Spencer/Cam/Emma. I don’t see much of a s/l for this character.

    Brian replied

    They are going to need to make Cam the same age IMO. Isn’t Joss the same age as Little Jake though? Oh they kinda messed up by bringing him back on the show.

    I dont know if she can act or not BUT she could sure pass for Carly and Jax’s daughter! Good luck honey.

    I just hope this girl isn’t taller than the other kids. The former Joss was so tall she looked like a pre-teen standing next to Emma and Spencer. This girl is cuter, and you need that for a serious rival for Emma.

    So now Joss is older than Cam,Emma,Jake and Spencer,but still younger than Molly and TJ?

    People need to stop bashing the teen scene.

    Teen cast in the background set up the show for 15 years for the future. If we didn’t have a teen scene in the past there would be NO show right now. Think about it all the current front burners are from the teen scen 15 to 20 years ago Nik, , Liz and Jason. Dillion Maxie and luLu. And going way back it was a teen love triangles that saved the show Scotty, like and Laura. Now I get that u don’t want them front and center all the time but we do need to build then up some what so you can care for them in the future imagine if they never show Robin as a kid and all the sudden they had a character show up playing her would you care as much about her without seeing her grow up on the show?
