Devane by Terry
Played by Finola Hughes
In 1985, a mystery woman arrived in Port
Charles. Anna Devane was the ex-wife of World Security Bureau (WSB) spy
Robert Scorpio. Anna was born in the UK and raised in Canada. The deaths of
her parents and younger sister left her alone, so she became a spy for the WSB.
During the mid-seventies, Anna married her partner, Robert, who
divorced her when he discovered she was a double agent for the DVX (Russian
spy agency). She
found out she was carrying his child after the divorce and kept the
pregnancy secret. She gave birth to a daughter and named her
was raised by family friend Filomena Soltini until she was eight years old
and later became a doctor at General Hospital.
Anna was involved in several escapades while in Port Charles; as a result of
her heroics, she was appointed co-police chief of the Port Charles Police
Department (PCPD). Anna was romantically involved with the owner of Duke’s
Club, mobster Duke Lavery. She refused to believe that Lavery was a member
of the mob until reporters stopped their wedding with proof. Questioning her
judgment, she resigned from the PCPD. Eventually, Anna and Duke reconnected
and were married. Anna became pregnant but lost the child when Olivia St.
John of the Jerome crime family tried to kill her. Lavery was assassinated by the organization for
turning state’s evidence.
While working together, Anna and Robert's relationship grew, and they
remarried. The couple was presumed dead when the ship they were on was
destroyed in a fiery explosion. A few years later, Anna turned up alive in
Pine Valley, PA with amnesia, but she eventually got her memory back and
reunited with daughter Robin. (Robert also turned up alive later.) She was
married while in Pine Valley to Doctor Hayward. They had a baby, Leora, but
she died. Eventually David and Anna were divorced. She still
works as a spy for the WSB. She and
her former husband Robert are estranged. She briefly had a fling with
rock star Eli Love.
Anna returned to Port Charles in 2012 when Robin was presumed dead.
Currently, she is helping former FBI agent John McBain, who wants to put
Sonny in jail. She is sharing a hotel suite with Luke Spencer.
Anna is about as close to a superheroine as you can find on TV without
wearing a cape. She is a sexy spy who fights to save the world and
have adventure. She can be very tough, especially when defending a family
member, but she is also very nice, friendly, and sweet. She laughs a lot and
tends to have more male friends than female ones.
