Who Plays Sasha On General Hospital

The soap opera is one of the defining genres of American television, and few soaps have developed the same degree of iconography as "General Hospital." As one of the longest-running soap operas of all time, the show has introduced fans to numerous beloved characters and seen numerous fan-favorite storylines play out over the years. Dozens of unique personalities have filtered in and out of the show ever since it premiered back in 1963, and one of the current favorites among the ensemble is Sasha Gilmore.

Sasha has become a mainstay of the current "General Hospital" ensemble ever since her introduction to the show back in 2018. Ostensibly positioned as the long-lost daughter of Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) upon her arrival on the show, Sasha has stood out as one of the main schemers in Port Charles for the last four years. But what about her real-life counterpart? To get to know Sasha Gilmore a bit better, it's worth taking a look at the rising actor behind the role.

Sasha Gilmore is played by Sofia Mattsson

Sasha Gilmore is portrayed by Swedish actor Sofia Mattsson on "General Hospital." Mattsson has been working as an actor since 2012. Following her debut on the show back in 2018, Mattsson has appeared in 244 episodes of the beloved soap opera to date. While Sasha is still a presence on the show, Mattsson herself briefly stepped away from the role. That is because, according to Distractify, she opted to take some time off from the show following the birth of her child. As such, her sister Helena Mattsson (who is also an actor) stepped in to briefly play Sasha while her sister was out.

While "General Hospital" is Mattsson's longest tenure on a TV series by a wide margin, she has some other notable credits on her IMDb page that are worth looking at as well. In addition to "General Hospital," Mattsson can also be seen in "Two and a Half Men," "NCIS," "Campus Security," "Gothic Harvest," and more. Moreover, as she is back from her brief "General Hospital" sabbatical, fans can expect to see her play Sasha Gilmore for the foreseeable future.
