Trina is a strong young woman who first came on the show as a teen who liked to party. She became good friends with Josslyn Jacks. Her mother, Portia, is a doctor. She was told that her father, Marcus Taggert, had died, but he faked his death in order to protect his family. Then she found out that Curtis, her mother’s fiancé, might be her real father.
Trina is smart and a great student, but she’s had trouble in her young life. She had an attraction to young Spencer Cassadine, but Spencer’s evil girlfriend, Esme, saw her as a threat. She drugged Trina and made it look as if she streamed Cam and Josslyn’s first sexual encounter to the world. Trina almost went to jail because of Esme framing her. Spencer loves Trina, so he worked hard to prove what Esme did.
Trina worked in Ava’s art gallery for a time as an intern. She always tells the truth and is frequently hurt by friends and family who lie to her.
