Elena Dawson is a resident of Genoa City, currently played by General Hospital Alumni Brytini Sarpy since 2019.


Elena first appeared when she opened the door to Devon Hamilton when he followed his sister, Ana Hamilton, to a motel. After initially slamming the door in his face, the young woman was later revealed to be the nurse to Jett Slade, a former R&B musician who also happens to be Ana’s father. Devon invited her and Jett to move into the penthouse with him and Ana so she could be with her father. Elena was uncomfortable with the situation and insisted she wasn't looking for a handout, but agreed. Elena found herself drawn to Devon, but he overstepped again when he paid off her student loans.

Elena and Devon's relationship got off to a rocky start, in no small part because he was still haunted by the death of his wife, Hilary Curtis. But the couple grew closer and she was there for him when his father, Neil Winters, passed away. Elena also befriended Nate Hastings, and off his suggestion, interviewed and got a job as a new resident at the hospital.
