Hayden’s past is catching up to her on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and it led her to visit her father in prison. But it also led some fans to wonder exactly who Raymond Berlin is, and who is the actor playing him. Well, fear not — we’ve got your answers!
Although technically, Hayden’s biological father is Jeff Webber (making her Elizabeth’s sister), she was raised as Rachel Berlin, the daughter of Naomi and Raymond Berlin. But he was a banker who swindled his clients out of millions of dollars, landing him behind bars. During their reunion on the Aug. 7 episode of GH, Raymond confessed he distanced himself from her when he learned she wasn’t really his daughter, but then admitted he’d always be her dad. But when she confided that her ex-husband, Jared, is blackmailing her, Raymond sadly informed her there was no money left from the hedge fund she could use to pay him off.
