There’s a new doctor in Port Charles with a familiar face. Dr. Portia Robinson on GENERAL HOSPITAL is being played by Brook Kerr, who made her debut in the March 6 episode. Soap fans will remember the actress from her role of Whitney on the NBC sudser PASSIONS.
Portia is the mother of Trina Robinson, who has previously mentioned that her mom wasn’t always around. But she showed up when Trina’s father, Marcus Taggert, was killed after rescuing her from kidnappers. Trina was thrilled to see her mother and rushed into her arms, but Portia bristled to see Ava Jerome offering to help during this difficult time and reminded her that she was Trina’s boss, not her mother.
During Taggert’s memorial service, Portia continued to be irritated at Trina’s closeness with Ava and confided to Jordan Ashford that she loved Taggert but the job always came first with him. Then it was Jordan’s turn to worry as it turned out that Portia also had a past with Curtis Ashford.
When Curtis expressed his concerns, Portia assured him that despite the math, Taggert was Trina’s father because they’d slept together when he returned from undercover. She also apologized for lying to him that she was single when they had the affair. The doctor later admitted that she was thinking about transferring to work at General Hospital.
