Josslyn had quite a traumatic childhood, but when McCoy took over the role in October of 2015, the writers were able to pen some teenage drama for the young woman including meeting the woman whose kidney donation saved her life as a kid and her first love story with Oscar!
Although Joss hated Sonny for getting her father, Jax, deported, that seems to be changing as time goes on and she softens towards her stepfather. Of course, in reality, McCoy admits she and Maurice Benard (Sonny) have a much different relationship! “Maurice makes me laugh as soon as I stop yelling at him in the scene!” she revealed. “He makes it so hard for me to stay mad! I adore him.”
And true to form, Benard replied to her tweet with one of his crazy Snapchat videos! “Hi Eden!” the squeaky voice declares as the giant eyes blink. “I’ve been cast as the new Sonny. Can’t wait to work with ya! I hope you like me as much as you liked him.”
Page through the gallery below to see what McCoy had to say about some of her other co-stars like Chad Duell (Michael) and Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), what it was like singing at the Nurses Ball, and who she thinks Carly should really be with — Sonny or Jax!
