Scarlett Brielle Is the New Donna on GENERAL HOSPITAL

No, your eyes weren’t deceiving you — there is a new Donna on GENERAL HOSPITAL! The role of Sonny and Carly’s daughter is now being played by child star Scarlett Brielle. “This has literally been the hardest secret I have ever had to keep!” her manager shared on Instagram. “We are so ecstatic to join the wonderful cast of GH and honored to have Maurice Benard as her on-set Dad, Laura Wright as her mom, and the Scarola twins as her sister.”

Brielle is a successful child model but as she is only just starting out on her acting career, she does not yet have an IMDb page full of other credits. But she’s already charming viewers as the new Donna Corinthos on GH beginning with her debut in the Nov. 1 episode, so it’s a smashing start to her career!

Donna was born to Carly and Sonny Corinthos in Sept. 2019 and was played by twins Ella and Emma Hulen until April 2020. When the character was seen again in August 2021, she had aged a bit and was being portrayed by Ava Rose. The character was named after Donna Messina, GH’s beloved head of hair and makeup who passed away in December 2018.

Before Donna was born, her parents worried when genetic testing revealed the child had Spina Bifida and would require surgery immediately after birth. Thankfully, the surgery was a success, and Donna has lived a healthy life so far. Of course, she’s had some confusion with her father being declared dead and starting to call Jason “daddy,” only to have him die and her real father come back very much alive. That’s a lot for one little girl to process!

Stay tuned to GH to watch Brielle continue to bring Donna to life as the Corinthos family drama continues!
