Casting

On February 26, 2020, sources confirmed that actress Brook Kerr, who was known for her role of Whitney Russell Harris-Crane on Passions, will join the cast of GH in the role of Dr. Portia Robinson.[2][3][4] She first appeared on March 5, 2020.

Background

Trina Robinson occasionally mentions her mother who is rarely at home.

Portia seems to be an old acquaintance of Curtis Ashford.

Storylines

When Trina’s father Marcus Taggert is killed, she stays at her friend Cameron Webber’s house after his mom Liz couldn’t get a hold of Trina’s mom Portia, who is referred to as Dr. Robinson. Trina’s boss, Ava and her husband Nikolas Cassadine come by the house to pay their respects. Portia later arrives and says she was out of town when Taggert passed away. She thanks Liz for letting Trina stay at her house while she was gone. Ava wants Portia to know that if Trina needs anything she is there for her. Portia sends Trina upstairs to pack and lets Ava know that she is aware of Ava’s mob past and Ava is not Trina’s mother. She accuses Ava of trying to replace Ava’s deceased daughter Kiki with Trina and Ava walks away from her.

On March 6, Portia’s first name is revealed. She thanked Liz for her help while Portia was in Vancouver at a medical conference. Portia regretted that Taggert didn't let her know that Trina was in trouble. She told Liz about how Taggert’s dangerous job with the DEA put a strain on their marriage and they ended up divorcing. Jordan Ashford showed up and talked to Portia. Jordan assumed Cyrus killed Taggert. Portia said that she knew about Cyrus since Taggert mentioned him during his time in the DEA.

On March 10, during Taggert’s wake at The Floating Rib, Jordan notices the annoyed looks between Ava and Portia. After Jordan follows Portia, she confesses to Jordan that she loved Marcus but his job always came first. Curtis walks in and Portia recognizes him. Trina is upset to see Curtis who she blames for her father’s death. Portia apologizes to Curtis for Trina, but Curtis agrees with everything Trina said to him. Portia tells Curtis it has been years since they’ve seen each other. Ava intentionally acts motherly to Trina and lets Trina know that she can take her time before returning to her internship at the Jerome Gallery.

Portia was working at Mercy Hospital until March 25 when she started at General Hospital.

Crimes Committed

  • Adultery; had an affair with Curtis Ashford and didn’t tell him she was married to Marcus Taggert at the time [pre-2003; revealed Mar 18, 2020]
