Finola went on her yearly vacation while Anna went to find her twin, Alexandra Marick, so the two sisters could sort out whose memories were whose, since they were the first two subjects in Dr. Arthur Cabot’s (Time Warner) original twins studies, which were memory transfer studies between sets of twins.
They were Patients One and Two of six patients, Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) being Patients Three and Four, and Drew Cain (Billy Miller) and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) being Patients Five and Six, but under an improved memory transfer process that Dr. Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) built upon Cabot’s original work.
Finola Hughes Is A General Hospital Veteran But Also Spent Time On All My Children And Night Shift
The character of Anna Devane, as portrayed by Finola Hughes, was introduced on General Hospital on April 10, 1985 as the ex-wife of Special Agent Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers). She, as well as Robert were on the General Hospital canvas off and on between the years of 1980 for Robert and 1985 for Anna.
They have one daughter together, Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake (Kimberly McCullough) and two grandchildren through Robin, Emma Scorpio-Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) and Noah Scorpio-Drake (uncast character), named after his paternal grandfather Dr. Noah Drake (Rick Springfield). Anna is also believed to have an adult son by Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) who is Peter August (Wes Ramsey).
Peter’s maternity is one thing that Anna and Alexandra are trying to figure out between the two of them. Anna was also married to Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) from 1987-1989, and she was thought to be dead for many years after a boat explosion that she, Robert, and Faison were involved in. On July 23, 1999 Finola began appearing on the canceled ABC soap opera, All My Children as her identical twin, Alexandra. In 2000, she went searching for her twin, having started having memories that she could not understand, in which she was a spy and married to a man named Robert.
She also did some research and found information about a spy named Anna Devane, who with her husband Robert, had died in a boat explosion and eventually tracked her down, alive but very ill, in Canada and brought her back to Pine Valley where Anna recovered and eventually married Dr. David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) and they had a baby girl named Leora Hayward (uncast character) who sadly died of a heart condition. Anna eventually moved back to Port Charles, and Alex has showed up there several times in the last few years. Finola also played Anna in the GH spinoff Night Shift, which only ran from 2007-2008.
