Ivy Gatling is a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She has been portrayed by Kelly Frye from December 30, 2014 to February 9, 2015.


Ivy first appears on New Year's Eve as the date of Nikolas Cassadine at the Metro Court Hotel's annual New Year's Eve party. She was supposed to go with Agent Kyle Sloane, but Ivy meets Nikolas in the lobby and ends up going with him instead. She later dances with Nikolas and kisses him just after midnight.

Ivy later attends the party celebrating the opening of the A.J. Quartermaine Memorial Clinic, on the Haunted Star. Nikolas becomes caught up with Helena Cassadine outside, leaving her all alone at the party. Unbeknownst to the party-goers, Luke Spencer has set a bomb to explode on the boat. Everyone is saved at the last moment by Sonny Corinthos who arrives on the boat, grabs the bomb from Michael and jumps overboard.


Ivy and her father, Governor Richard Gatling

The next day Ivy goes to Wyndemere and confronts Nikolas about abandoning her at the party. She then later goes to the hospital to personally thank Sonny for saving everyone. Ivy catches up to Sonny as he is being transported back to Pentonville. She thanks him for his heroics and introduces him to her father - the honorable Richard Gatling (played by Holmes Osborne), Governor of the State of New York. Due to Sonny's heroics and for saving his daughter's life, Governor Gatling decides to pardon Sonny of his crimes, thus stopping the transfer back to Pentonville. Ivy then left town with her father.

She is last seen with her father going into an elevator at General Hospital.
