Sydney Mikayla (Trina Robinson, GH) shares emotional goodbye on Instagram! Click here to learn more--->>
Sydney Mikayla’s (Trina Robinson, General Hospital) last episode aired today. Mikayla has been on GH since 2019 and she’s leaving the soap opera to focus on her academic career and to have the opportunity to truly enjoy the college experience. Tabyana Ali will be stepping into the role later this month.
Mikayla posted an emotional and touching goodbye to her fellow castmates, crew, and fans on Instagram. She shared a series of pictures such as: behind the scenes photos on set, promotional photos that were taken for the show, out on the town pictures with some of her co-stars, and a small video of the crew thanking her when she wrapped her final taping (which were the scenes where Trina confronted Esme after Esme accused Trina of recording and leaking Joss & Cam’s sex tape).
Along with the photos and video, she shared the following in her caption, “I wanted to wait until my last episode premiered to give a proper goodbye, but I want to thank everyone who made my journey as magical as it was. I have some castmates to thank first:
@williamlipton (Cameron) I will always miss goofing off on set with you. You have incredible energy and your amazing songwriting will always put a smile on my face.
@edenmccoy (Josslyn) You never fail to inspire me. You are such a talent to work beside and I couldn’t have asked for a better on screen bestie.
@nicholasalexanderchavez (Spencer) You were an amazing first onscreen love interest. For this to be for first acting job, I think you’ve got a major career ahead (you have to say you knew me when 😉)
@averypohl (Esme) The sweetest and kindest person ever! Although I haven’t known you for very long, you’ve told me your goals, and your brilliance is going to change the world. I mean that ❤️
@brookkerr (Portia) Your words of wisdom have been heeded, and I’ve learned to take advantage of and be grateful for everything you’ve taught me along away.

It was an honor to be your Trina. I hope I’ve made you proud. Go kill it @tabyanaali!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Farewell 🤧🥺“
Some of Mikayla’s co-stars commented on her post:
Eden McCoy (Josslyn Jacks, GH): “ ❤️❤️❤️love you and miss u already 😫 “
Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer Cassadine, GH): “You’re such a rockstar. It’s been such a pleasure to know and work with you. I wish you nothing but continued success and happiness. ❤️ “
Johnny Wactor (Brando Corbin, GH): “Best of luck on your journey @officialsydneymikayla you’ve got a bright future. You’ll be missed”
Jophielle Love (Violet Finn, GH): “So great! 😍“
Brook Kerr (Portia Robinson, GH): “Such a classy queen 👑 My heart aches that I don’t get to see your beautiful face every day, but you have other adventures & success’s ahead. Keep shining bright, babygirl ⭐️⭐️⭐️ “
Avery Pohl (Esme Prince, GH): "SYDNEY ❤️YOU are an absolute gem, and one of the kindest, smartest, and most hardworking individuals I've ever met. So proud of you and excited to see where life takes you 💕💕 you can take on the world love 😘"
Mikayla’s portrayal of Trina Robinson resonated with fans. She most definitely kept Trina grounded and real which made fans instantly fall in love with her (both actress and character). Mikayla had Trina go from being just Josslyn’s BFF to so much more: a teen (then young woman) with a family, a meaningful job, hopes & dreams, and a part of two love triangles (Joss/Cam/Trina and Trina/Spencer/Esme). Mikayla’s undeniable chemistry with Chavez made Spencer and Trina (affectionately known as Sprina) an instant success. Mikayla had amazing chemistry with all of her cast mates that it was no wonder fans so badly wanted to see more stories for her and Trina. Mikayla will be deeply missed on General Hospital and we wish her all of the best in her future endeavors!
