Haley Pullos as Molly Lansing on ‘General Hospital’

Pullos has portrayed Molly since 2009. As the daughter of Alexis Davis and Ric Lansing, she is a member of both the Corinthos and Cassadine families. The character has two half-sisters, Kristina Davis and Sam McCall, who are both her older siblings through her Alexis.

During the time when Molly was first rapidly aged on the show and Pullos assumed the role, most of her storylines were intertwined with those of her Kristina, as well as her cousins Michael and Morgan Corinthos (who also happened to be are brothers of Kristina). However, this takes a turn in her later years, she begins dating her close friend, T.J. Ashford. Pullos was once a contract cast member but has been appearing on a recurring basis during the last several years.
