Energetic, eccentric and unabashedly romantic, the character of Chloe Morgan
burst onto General Hospital in the spring of 1999.
After graduating from the University of Missouri with a degree in communications,
Tava made the move to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming an actress.
A firm believer in the power of positive thinking, Tava's dedication and hard
work finally paid off with guest-starring roles on such shows as Beverly
Hills, 90210, Nash Bridges, The Pretender, Baywatch and Pensacola: Wings
of Gold. In addition, Tava hosted the music program, Inside Tracks, for
a start-up cable network, and Wild Chicago, a local variety magazine show in
Chicago. Tava also appeared in the Mike Figgis film, One Night Stand, before
landing her role on General Hospital.
Tava recently finished shooting a supporting role in the independent feature
film, Solid Ones.
In her spare time, Smiley enjoys "anything that is a new experience." Her
favorite pastimes include writing poetry, playing poker and sampling any and
all kinds of chocolate. For exercise, she enjoys yoga, hiking and playing
tennis. Tava and her cat Marina Bean reside in Los Angeles.
