Trina on GENERAL HOSPITAL has settled nicely into Port Charles’ younger set, but some fans were a bit confused when the character began appearing more often as she looked quite a bit different than she did before! Sydney Mikayla has been playing the role since February of 2019, but when Trina originally appeared in a few episodes back in 2017 and 2018, she was played by actress Tiana Le! Mikayla might look familiar to some viewers as she starred as Olive on the Nickelodeon series SCHOOL OF ROCK, based on the hit film. She also appeared as the young Gabby in the Lifetime movie, The Gabby Douglas Story as well as making guest appearances in shows like CRIMINAL MINDS, HOT IN CLEVELAND, and FULLER HOUSE.
Trina Robinson was introduced back in June of 2017 when she took over the party that Josslyn Jacks threw while her mom was out of town. Josslyn was concerned when Trina made sure alcohol was provided and invited a bunch of boys over, but was happy to learn one of those boys was the one she liked, Oscar Nero. (Who also looked a bit different back then!) The character made a return appearance in March of 2018 at Oscar and Josslyn’s special “alternative prom” party that took a dangerous turn when the earthquake struck Port Charles!
Trina resurfaced in 2019 episode looking like a new girl as she planned a trip to Niagara Falls with Josslyn, Oscar, and Cameron Webber. When they gave Joss and Oscar a room to themselves, Cameron was nervous sharing with Trina, mentioning her reputation as a party girl. Trina assured Cam that was all talk and promised she wasn’t into him. She remained tight with her friends as they helped Oscar check off his bucket list and was there for them when he sadly passed away. She also attended Liz and Franco’s wedding reception as Cam’s guest when Josslyn initially turned down his invitation.
As she established a life in Port Charles, Trina got herself a job working for Ava Jerome at her art gallery, though Joss worried about her friend getting mixed up in her boss’ craziness. Trina was also suspicious of newcomer Dev Corbin, not sure he was actually who he claimed to be, but when he revealed his deception to stay in America, she joined the other teens in keeping the secret. Then she called the recently-returned Marcus Taggert dad!
On the way to a school dance with Cam, the teens were kidnapped, and Taggert was shot trying to rescue his daughter. Later, at the hospital, Trina was devastated when her father died after suffering a blood clot. Which is when her oft-absent mother, Portia Robinson, finally showed up in her life.
