“General Hospital” actress Sofia Mattsson (Sasha Gilmore) announced on Instagram yesterday that she is now officially a citizen of the United States of America.
In a post, Mattsson said, “So honored and proud to have become a US Citizen today!!! I’m so grateful to this country for all the opportunities I’ve been given and for helping me make my dreams come true!”
Several of Mattsson’s “General Hospital” co-stars chimed in with messages of congratulations, including Cassandra James (Terry), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), and on-screen husband Johnny Wactor (Brando). “The Young and the Restless” star Courtney Hope (Sally) and even former soaper Kayla Ewell (ex-Caitlin, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) also congratulated Mattsson.
Born in Stockholm, Sweden along with sisters, Mia and Helena, Sofia Mattsson gave birth to her first child with actor/writer/producer husband Thomas Payton last year. “He joined us on 7/26/21 and stole my heart completely!!” she shared on Instagram following the news of their son’s birth.
