The fall of 2021 brought big change to Eden McCoy’s life. While she was used to the grind of getting an education while also working on “General Hospital” bringing Josslyn Jacks to life, she has now entered the college world and is still juggling life on a soap and life in a classroom. However, she is grateful that she had as normal a childhood as she could while also growing up on TV.
“I think the fact that I went to a normal high school just like others on the show throughout … I mean, I’ve been on the show since before I was in high school,” McCoy explained on the January 25, 2022 installment of “The Chat” podcast. “I’ve been on the show since elementary school so I had some training in this area [school and work], which is very helpful when it comes to in terms of now.”
But are her studies going to interfere with her Port Charles life? Not according to McCoy, who once said she would stay with the show for “as long as they’ll have me” (via Cheat Sheet) and told The Chat, “I just signed a new three-year-contract, [so fans have] nothing to worry about … I just love them [school and ‘GH’] too much not to do them both.”
