Dev Cerci (Ashton Arbab) is set to become the newest addition to the Corinthos as Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) seeks to make him a permanent part of their family.
Arbab described his 16-year-old character as one who’s “seen a lot that most people in Port Charles haven’t.” Viewers may recall that he had to raise himself after his mother passed when he was still very young.
It remains unclear what he had to go through to survive, but he’s sure one tough kid. However, this may all just be a cover to mask his true self.
“He puts on this suave, bad-boy persona because that’s how he’s grown up,” explained Arbab. “He’s very slick with what he says and does… but on the inside, he has a lot of heart,” he added.
Sonny may believe that Dev is a good kid. However, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and Jax Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) don’t share the same sentiment. The pair are concerned about Dev’s influence on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), who’s been struggling to move on after the death of Oscar Nero Quartermaine (Garren Stitt).

However, Joss’ portrayer, McCoy, doesn’t think Dev’s the problem.
She said, “Dev adds a good contrast to the mix because he’s seen bad things that Joss, Cam, and Trina haven’t. They go through really hard things… but they’re all pretty privileged and sheltered because they come from wealth and such nice families.”
