‘General Hospital’ News: Soap Favorite Lands Contract As Regular

General Hospital fans know and love this character but they probably don’t see as much as they’d like. Now that is about to change. Eden McCoy, who plays Josslyn Jacks, has just landed herself a contract as a regular character on the soap.

It was back in 2015 when McCoy joined the General Hospital cast and her role has been one of a recurring character since that time. The ABC soap has upped the ante for McCoy’s soap career as she is now one of the regular cast members, reports Soap Opera News.

Can You Believe McCoy is Number 6 Josslyn Jacks?

Now that she is part of the GH family on a perpetual basis, you might want to know a little more about the teen. Eden McCoy is the 15-year-old actress who will be sizzling up the teen scene a bit for General Hospital this summer, or so the spoilers say.  When it comes to the soap, McCoy is the sixth actress to play the character of Josslyn Jacks.

Who is the Real McCoy on GH?

McCoy’s first credit in her professional acting career comes from the movie Perfect Man. This was a 2011 drama. She also has done some acting on Nickelodeon series, such as Thundermans and Game Shakers. 

On Gameshakers, McCoy appeared with Kel Mitchell when she guest starred on the show. Back in 2015, she was cast in the film The Kids from 62-F in the role as Cassie, according to Famous Birthdays.com.

General Hospital Has A Real California Girl Under Contract

She is an original California Girl, born and raised in Los Angeles. Growing up as an L.A. kid, she played in volleyball competitions. McCoy also studied in her hometown at the Marlboro School.

Timing is Just Right

There couldn’t be a better time for McCoy to come on board General Hospital as a regular. As the adults on the soap are finding intrigue these days, it’s time for the GH teen set to follow suit. That’s where McCoy will come in.

As GH fans will witness, Nell Benson’s (Chloe Lanier) world is about to fall apart but she doesn’t know it. Her quickie wedding plans are whipped quickly.  She wants to put a ring on her finger before Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) changed his mind.

General Hospital spoilers have Nelle’s world already imploding behind her back. Although she doesn’t appear a bit worried about recent setbacks, the spoilers suggest she needs to be.

General Hospital Through Generations

Kid characters have grown up before the cameras in some of the roles on GH. A few characters, like Laura Spencer (Genie Francis), started out as a teen and now she’s one of the soap’s elders. (Well elder for the soap world).

You may be watching GH years from now and see Josslyn Jacks as a grandmother on this soap. Once signing that contract, there’s no telling what’s in store for McCoy.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
