General Hospital spoilers reveal an expanded younger scene in Port Charles with the return of Spencer Cassadine, now played by Nicholas Chavez. Does that mean Emma might return to the teen scene too? And will she also be recast and played by a new actress?
General Hospital Spoilers: Should Emma Be Recast?
When Spencer, Emma, Joss, and Cam were all children they played together and fought with one another, and Spencer and Cam even fought over which of these little girls they had a crush on. It never made sense to send both Spencer and Emma out of town and only have Joss (Eden McCoy) and Cam (Will Lipton) on the teen scene, with the eventual addition of Trina (Sydney Mikayla) after Oscar (Garren Stitt) died. Emma’s return would be welcome and is frankly necessary, but does that mean we have to lose Brooklyn Rae Silzer as Emma Scorpio Drake?
Young Ms. Silzer is now a lovely looking young lady attending high school and could take on any teen role she is given, so why not give her back Emma, the part she has played since she was a small child and made her own? It’s hard to picture anyone else as Emma and with Silzer looking the part, there should be no reason to recast like General Hospital just did with casting Chavez as a new Spencer Cassadine.
Why Emma Scorpio Drake Is Needed On General Hospital
While it would be ideal to have Emma back with both of her parents, Robin and Patrick, Kimberly McCullough and Jason Thompson are off doing other things. McCullough is directing primetime shows while Thompson plays Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless. However, Emma’s grandparents are still in town, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes). There’s no reason that Emma couldn’t move in with her grandmother as Anna is now alone in that big house since Finn and Violet moved out. Silzer and Finola Hughes have excellent chemistry together, something great to once again see.
And, of course, Emma can become a part of the teen scene. She can fit in very well with Joss, Cam, Spencer, and Trina and a triangle can be made with any of these characters. There’s no reason why Emma can’t also attend PCU. How do we know she didn’t graduate high school out in Berkeley? So, yes, while it is possible GH might decide to recast the character, there is no reason to. Stay tuned to General Hospital weekdays to see what the soap decides to do about Emma Scorpio Drake.

As Brooklyn presents older and more mature than her years, I think she would fit in good with the teen scene.
I think Brooklyn has outgrown her smart-alecky, supersweet usefulness. That’s no way for a future wsb spy/policewoman to act! Feds are RUTHLESS, super-tough, DEAD serious and aren’t afraid to take chances, let alone risk their lives to try and save innocent bystanders! AND, they are VERY smart at cracking international criminal cases! 🚔🔎
Emma needs to be recast. She was a great little actress but just like Nicholas playing Spencer all those years, they simply did not mature/age well enough to play either part convincingly as older teens. Smart decision to age Spencer and should they bring Emma back, the same needs done.
I agree. So, who do you think should play the older teen Emma Scorpio Drake?
[…] Charles because he has been upset with his father Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma). Spencer was upset with Nikolas because he did not let him know that he was alive after everyone thought that he was dead for three […]
Should play Emma
[…] The Scorpios catch up with Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and as Mac talks to his brother, Felicia talks to Anna. Mac can’t believe what Felicia has been talking about with babies on the brain and asks Robert what if you have to do the whole parenthood thing all over again?! Anna is even more shocked during her conversation with Felicia when she cannot believe that Felicia is pregnant, but the look on Felicia’s face seems to say it all! Felicia had assumed that she had entered menopause but a home pregnancy test came out positive, and she took another test and it said the same thing! Their baby is going to be nearly two years younger than Bailey once he or she is born! […]
