Esme Prince: General Hospital
November 21st

Avery Pohl joined the “General Hospital” cast, originating the role of Esme Prince, in August 2021, bringing life to the mysterious girlfriend of Spencer Cassadine. The two met at a French boarding school, and Esme, who has been described as dangerous and even unhinged, marked her arrival in Port Charles with such crimes as arson and theft.

Starting as a child model before shifting into acting, Avery has spent most of her life in the entertainment industry. She booked her first SAG National Commercial at 5 years old, and her first feature film at age 8, opposite Brit Marling in Zal Batmanglij’s “The Sound of My Voice,” which debuted at Sundance Film Festival. After spending her early career in New York City and Miami, Avery made the move to Los Angeles in 2013. She has tested for network pilots and had guest roles on several TV shows including “Dirty John”, “Criminal Minds”, “The Glades” and more, before joining the cast of GH.

Avery likes to believe she is kinder and more level-headed than her character, but she has always enjoyed sinking her teeth into multi-layered, unpredictable roles like that of Esme Prince. When not pursuing her acting career, Avery enjoys dancing ballet, cycling, playing basketball, and practicing stage combat. Avery also thoroughly enjoys spending time at the gym and working to push herself out of her comfort zone.
