Tabyana Ali Shares a Backstage Look at GH’s Bar Fight


The storyline surrounding Trina’s trial on GENERAL HOSPITAL was full of powerful drama for daytime newcomer Tabyana Ali (Trina), although it wasn’t always entirely serious. Especially not in the episodes where Trina and Josslyn went to a sleazy dive bar to get proof that Esme had bought the burner phone used to frame Trina for the sex tape. 

Because after the comedy of errors where the bouncer bounced their fake IDs and the young women found themselves in over their heads as they tried to question the various shady characters, a bar fight broke out around them!

“That was probably the most fun day that I’ve had on set,” Ali admitted in a recent issue of Soap Opera Digest. “It was so much fun to see everybody literally just get punched around. And they did such a great job, the stunt doubles and the stunt team. Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and I were like, ’This is mathematics! How do they do this?!’ The science of putting it together was so fun to watch and it looked so good.”

Of course, while shooting the scenes, the actors were all very much in the moment, so it was a lot of fun for Ali to watch the actual episode when it aired. Particularly to enjoy her co-star’s performance! “Eden’s face was so funny!” she laughed of McCoy’s reactions to the brawl. “I didn’t even know that she was making that face until I watched it and I was like, ‘Wow, this is hilarious!’”

Hopefully, there will be more lighthearted scenes coming up for Ali and McCoy on GH so they can continue to display their fantastic comedic skills. Although with Trina finding herself caught between Rory and Spencer, and Josslyn being drawn to Dex despite being in a relationship with Cameron, there may be more drama than comedy in their immediate future!
