Soap fans will be seeing a new face on General Hospital in 2023, since Eden's role is being temporarily recast. Why is her role being recast? Details are ahead.
So, what happened to Josslyn on 'General Hospital'?
Courtney Fulk is stepping into the role of Josslyn on the fan-favorite soap opera, per Soaps in Depth.
While we don't know how long Eden will be away from the show, the outlet speculates as to the reason for her part being recast temporarily.
As Eden shared in an Instagram post in November 2023, her mom sadly passed away from cancer.
"It feels bizarre and almost performative to make a post so personal on the most impersonal space, but many people who knew my mother and also knew me didn’t know what was going on, and this is the easiest way to let everyone know," she wrote in part at the time.
"My mother has fought an intense battle with cancer for the past two and a half years and has now left us physically," Eden went on to heartbreakingly share. "I’m not sure what to say other than she was, is, and will be the best thing I have ever known. She is responsible for every good part of me, and she took me with her when she left."
"If there is anything I can say to whoever is reading, it would be that absolutely nothing is promised. We really aren’t owed anything. Your life really can change in just a moment, so as my mom would say, do everything as if it your last time doing it," Eden went on to say. "Losing my mother has always been my greatest fear, as I’m sure many of you feel the same, and we have this habit as people of thinking that it will never happen to us. Unfortunately, it can, and sometimes it does."
In the weeks after her mother's death, Eden has posted a few poems about death and definitely seems to be taking the loss very hard. We wish her comfort and peace as she presumably takes time away from her award-winning role to focus on healing.
