Finn and Hayden’s daughter on GENERAL HOSPITAL was finally introduced when Violet Finn made her debut in the Oct. 23 episode, with young actress Jophielle Love playing the role. Love is only just starting her show business career, with an appearance as patient Clervie Martin in the Oct. 17 episode of GREY’S ANATOMY being her very first role on television. Her only other previous credit on her IMDb page is the as-yet-unreleased short film Rose, with Love playing the title role of a kidnapped little girl. Although from her Instagram, it appears that the young hopeful had an audition at the NBC sudser DAYS OF OUR LIVES that didn’t work out, but DAYS’ loss is GH‘s gain! (Also, while Hayden and Finn’s daughter should actually be around two years old, it looks like SORAS struck little Violet early as Love is really five!)
Hayden Barnes was pregnant when she left Port Charles in 2017, but told Hamilton Finn in a letter that she had lost the baby. However, when she returned to town in 2019, it was revealed that she had given birth to a little girl and was keeping her secret from her daddy. Unfortunately, Hayden had no choice but to come clean when Violet got sick and was admitted to the hospital. Finn was stunned to learn he had a daughter, and also that she was seriously ill. After meeting his little girl, Finn called in another doctor to consult so he wouldn’t be treating his own child, and then confronted Hayden about lying to him.
Once Violet was on the mend and out of the hospital, she and her father got to know each other a little better. Naturally, Finn was smitten with the little cutie, but their lives took another unexpected turn when Hayden was led to believe her life was in danger and skipped town again, leaving Violet in her father’s care! Thankfully, Anna Devane had come home so she was able to offer Finn some help, although Finn wasn’t crazy about his daughter spending time with Peter August given his history. Violet was initially resistant to the idea of Anna marrying her daddy because she didn’t want her mommy to be replaced, but they eventually got her to understand and come around.
As Finn and Anna prepared to tie the knot, they established a loving family unit for Violet and even threw her a lavish birthday party. Unfortunately, Charlotte Cassadine brought an uninvited guest with her, slipping a snake into Ava’s purse to ruin the big day! Stay tuned to watch Violet continue to grow up in Port Charles.
