Quick Take with Eden Mccoy (Joss­lyn, GH)

Soap Opera Digest - - LATE-BREAKING NEWS -

■ So, Joss­lyn fi­nally knows about Os­car’s ill­ness. How is she han­dling it? “Ob­vi­ously, there’s some heart­break there. At first, it’s like a bomb has gone off in her life and she just feels so lost. But she doesn’t suc­cumb to her weak­ness. Her mother is Carly, af­ter all! So, any kind of ex­per­i­men­tal treat­ment, any­thing that could po­ten­tially be a cure, is what she wants to fo­cus on and what she wants to hap­pen. She won’t give up on Os­car un­less she ab­so­lutely has to and she wants to fight for him, and her ef­fect on him is that she is able to con­vince him to fight. Where Os­car is sen­si­tive and re­signed to his fate, Joss­lyn is fierce and de­ter­mined to beat the can­cer.”

Joss has also got­ten closer to Cameron re­cently. “She is able to go to Cam as a source of strength for her­self be­cause he’s a tie to her past and they grew up to­gether. Cameron makes her feel safe be­cause he knows ev­ery­thing about her and loves her any­way. He ac­cepts and even likes her flaws. That’s what we all want! In Joss­lyn’s crazy life, Cam is the steady an­chor that is able to make her safe and grounded.” She re­cently fig­ured out that he has ro­man­tic feel­ings for her. “Yeah, I think when Joss­lyn was able to take a deep breath, she rec­og­nized his true feel­ings, and I think that deep down, she rec­og­nizes hers, too. She knows, ‘Wow, this per­son re­ally is that per­son for me,’ as much as she might not want to ad­mit it at first.”

So, you are of­fi­cially in your first soap opera love tri­an­gle. Are you lov­ing it?

“Yeah! I love it a lot. This is the dream! This is the good stuff. I re­ally like the heavy stuff, the dra­mat­ics, and I am super-grate­ful that they trusted me with it.”

Joss and Cam have been get­ting a pretty big re­sponse from fans on­line.

“I’m see­ing it live in ac­tion right now, the Cameron vs. Os­car sit­u­a­tion, and it’s re­ally ex­cit­ing and re­ally fun to see how peo­ple are re­act­ing. I love read­ing ev­ery­thing and see­ing peo­ple’s opin­ions, and right now, they’re ob­sessed with Cameron and Joss! That makes me re­ally, re­ally happy. They’re ex­cited about the Carly and Liz [an­gle] be­cause they’re our par­ents and they’re fight­ing and that just makes the whole sit­u­a­tion cra­zier. It’s been re­ally fun to see peo­ple re­act to it.”

If you were a fan, who would you be root­ing for, Joss and Cam or Joss and Os­car? “I think I’d be a lit­tle bit torn. Os­car shows her a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive be­cause he comes from a dif­fer­ent back­ground. He’s a sen­si­tive soul and Joss is very pro­tec­tive of him. But with Cam and Joss, he is her equal in stength and tem­per­a­ment and there’s a lot of mu­tual re­spect and an ease be­tween them. He isn’t afraid to call Joss out and vice versa, and they have a re­ally strong at­trac­tion.”
