Eden McCoy Wiki (Age)
Eden McCoy was born on June 10, 2003, in Los Angeles and grew up in Manhattan Beach, California. Her family, however, recently relocated to a more urban neighbourhood and according to the actress, instead of looking outside and seeing the beach like she used to, she now looks outside and sees the city. She likes it though because now, her school, The Marlborough School, is close to her home and also just about six minutes away from the General Hospital soap opera studio.
Aside from acting, Eden is a volleyball player. She first started playing indoors when she was 11 years old and later started playing outdoors at the age of 13. As of September 2017, she ranked number 6 in her age group in the state of California. The young star also has a verbal commitment to play for the University of Southern California Women’s Beach Volleyball Team class of 2025.
The only daughter of her parents, Eden McCoy discovered with the approval of her parents, her acting ability somewhat by accident. She explained that she was very shy as a child and even though her school was keen on public speaking, she was never really interested in performing or doing anything of such nature. However, her parents signed her up for a theatre camp and while there, she began to develop an interest in acting and made up her mind to continue with it.
At the camp, they staged a play which various agencies came to watch in a bid to scout for kid actors. An agent reached out to her and with the approval of her parents, she signed with the agency and started attending auditions. She was just 8 at the time.
Eden started her acting career with commercials. Her first professional job was a Wells Fargo commercial but her first big commercial was for Valpak coupons. Eventually, she started guest-starring on Nickelodeon and Disney shows and auditioned for a role in the daytime television medical drama, General Hospital. She nailed her tryout scene and the following read for producers, landing the role of Josslyn Jacks, Carly and Jax’s headstrong daughter.
Speaking of her reaction when she got to know about her new role, the teenager said she remembers getting picked up from school and her mom telling her about it when she got into the car. She felt like screaming and crying at the same time. In case you don’t know what the big deal is about getting a role on the show, this is it…General Hospital is listed in the World Guinness Book of Records as the longest-running American soap opera in production and the second longest-running American TV drama in history.
Eden Maccoy debuted on the soap opera on the occasion of Sonny and Carly’s wedding in the hospital chapel.
