After having spent time in Australia with her father, Jasper Jacks, Josslyn Jacks returned to the fictional town of Port Charles just in time to see her mother, Carly Corinthos, marry Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) in 2015, according to Soaps in Depth. Josslyn was already old enough to understand what Sonny did for a living and how dangerous it was, and that’s why she was so concerned about her mother’s safety. Off-screen, Eden McCoy admitted that working with the formidable Maurice Benard was just as intimidating. She told Soap Opera Digest, “Maurice was super-scary and intimidating to me at first. And like I’ve said a million times, now, in our relationship, he’s just a sweetheart.”
While she wasn’t filming scenes for “General Hospital,” McCoy’s personal life definitely kept her busy and on her toes. In 2018, she revealed that she was deciding to attend the University of Southern California and play beach volleyball, according to Soap Opera News. That same year, she broke up with her long-term boyfriend and decided to focus on school and work to keep her mind off of it. In 2019, she also scored a Daytime Emmy nomination. She told Soap Central that she was floored by the news. “I just gasped and sat in silence for like five minutes, not even believing what I had just seen,” she said at the time.
