The three-time Emmy-winner is a true scene stealer and captivates her audience every time she steps into Ava Jerome's impeccable shoes on "General Hospital." This isn't her first rodeo, as she's appeared in two other soap operas - CBS' "As the World Turns" and "The Young and the Restless." West is a veritable scene stealer and captivates her audience every time she steps into Ava Jerome's impeccable shoes.
From the moment she was introduced to the soap in 2013, Ava has been the mastermind behind a large number of schemes. According to Soaps in Depth, it is a testament to West's extensive range that her character remains a fan favorite and has come back from the impossible, such as murder, prison escapes, and a revenge plot against her daughter, which were all caused by her extensive range.
During the heartbreaking reveal that her husband, Nikolas Cassadine (played by Marcus Coloma), had slept with the resident bad guy and her current arch-nemesis, Esme Prince (played by Avery Pohl), West's performance and overall delivery were trending on Twitter for two days straight, per the website. Furthermore, Esme is dating Nikolas' son, Spencer, who is played by Nicholas Chavez, which further complicates things.
With her role as Esme, Pohl (whose first on-screen kiss was with Chavez) always gives as good as she gets and then some more. There is no doubt that the verbal sparring that takes place between Ava and Esme will go down in soap opera history. Since the characters of Pohl and West share a similar mindset and temperament, it makes perfect sense that "GH" would pair them together.
