Sofia Mattsson is best known for her role as Sasha Gilmore on ‘General Hospital’

Currently, Mattsson plays Sasha Gilmore on General Hospital. She started portraying Sasha in 2018 and took a brief hiatus in Dec. of that year, but returned Feb. 5, 2019, according to General Hospital Wiki.

Sasha hails from Chappaqua, NY, where she was raised by a single mother. After her mother died, the only family Sasha had left was her grandmother. When her grandmother fell ill, Sasha didn’t have the money to pay for her medical bills. So she posed as Nina’s long-lost daughter, per Valentin Cassadine’s offer, to pay for her grandmother’s surgery.
