At A Glance
Emmy Award-winning actress Finola Hughes made her return to daytime in July of 1999, portraying Alexandra Devane on All My Children. In March, 2001, Hughes assumed the role that made her famous to fans of General Hospital -- Anna Devane, the presumed dead twin sister of Alex.

Born and educated in London, England -- where she still maintains a home -- Hughes studied ballet beginning at the age of 10. In 1980, Hughes originated the role of Victoria in the premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webner's Cats. From there, Hughes went on to find fame opposite John Travolta in Stayin' Alive.

Hughes' primetime television credits include Jack's Place, Blossom, and Pacific Palisades.
