Soap Hub wishes Risa Dorken a very happy birthday.
Even though General Hospital’s beloved gossip, Nurse Amy Driscoll, hasn’t been seen in a while, Risa Dorken, who plays the character, has been busy living her life and preparing for a very big occasion.
Happy Birthday, Risa Dorken
This is because the brilliant actress is celebrating her 33rd birthday today! She was born on February 4, 1990, in Apple Valley, Minnesota. Dorken picked up a passion for acting thanks to her vocal training and dance sessions.
She began working in her neighbourhood community theatre and the Minneapolis Children’s Theatre when she was 8 years old. Dorken moved to New York after finishing high school to enrol in a two-year musical theatre conservatory programme.
After that, Dorken worked as an extra in feature films like The Wolf of Wall Street and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty as well as television shows like Boardwalk Empire, The Carrie Diaries, and Gossip Girl when she wasn’t trying out for the newest Broadway production.
Dorken was hired by ABC’s General Hospital, where she has played Nurse Amy Driscoll on a regular basis since May 4, 2016, thanks to a shift to the west coast and her classically trained voice.
Other appearances by Dorken include cameos in the CBS sitcom Life in Pieces, which starred Hunter King, a co-star from the serial opera Deadly Sins, Restaurant Stakeout, All Wifed Out, and Pillow Talk.
Bo Clark, a fellow actress who she met during her second year of her conservatory training, and Dorken have been married since June of 2017. While still dating and sharing an apartment in New York, the pair decided to go to Los Angeles.
