“I think she had put it [the fact that Amanda and Hilary could be related] in the back of her mind,” explained the actress. “She’s been focusing on her work – her relationship [with Devon] and the clinic. Once it’s confirmed that there’s a connection, her security level related to her relationship with Devon may plummet.”
She also hinted at the fact that it seems like Elena has a good understanding of what the eventual result will be — Amanda and Hilary are sisters. “Elena had an idea of what the answer is going to be given how identical they look and that Amanda comes from a foster background,” she said. “Elena’s just now getting over healing from the [emotional] earthquake she experienced with Devon when he thought he was seeing her ghost.”
