Who is Gladys in General Hospital?

Gladys Corbin first appeared in GH in July 2019.

In her first appearance, Gladys met with Sonny Corinthos, who asked her to pretend to be Dev’s grandmother by claiming that Dev was the child of her “late” son, Brando Corbin.

Gladys continued to hang around and began to insinuate herself into Sonny, Carly, and Dev’s lives, asking questions about the family coffee business.

During a tour of the coffee warehouse, shots rang out and Carly was saved by a guy Gladys was shocked to recognize as her son.

Gladys admitted that when Brando came home from the war, he was in a bad place and did terrible things, so when he disappeared again, it was easier to say he’d been killed in action.

In October 2020, Gladys resurfaced to attend her cousin Mike Corbin’s memorial service, where she began pressuring Sonny to make Brando a part of his organization.

However, when Sonny was resistant to the idea, Cyrus Renault stepped in and offered Gladys support for her and her son.

She then reappeared in March 2021 to visit Brando in the hospital after he’d been shot.

Unfortunately, Cyrus used Gladys to test Brando’s loyalty, and when he refused to shoot his own mother, everything went to hell and Gladys got hit in the crossfire.

After recovering from her wounds, Gladys began sticking her nose into Brando’s relationship with Sasha Gilmore and was stunned to discover the young woman was pregnant.

Although upset when Brando insisted she’d move out of his apartment so they could have the room for a nursery, Gladys happily accepted Sasha’s offer of a job at Crimson because of the perks.
