Courtney Matthews (formerly Quartermaine, Morgan, and Jacks) was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She was the daughter of Mike Corbin and Janine Matthews, and the half sister of mobster, Sonny Corinthos. Courtney was portrayed by Alicia Leigh Willis from December 20, 2001 until February 21, 2006. Willis received two consecutive Emmy nominations for her portrayal of Courtney.
Soon after her arrival in Port Charles, she fell in love with and married A.J. Quartermaine, who used her to get to his biological son Michael Corinthos III, the illegally adopted child of Courtney's half-brother Sonny. However, when Courtney defended AJ to his family, he realized that he truly loved her. AJ ceased trying to trade Courtney for Michael and the Quartermaines froze AJ's bank account, leading him further into his alcoholism. After being blackmailed into stripping due to AJ's drunk driving accident, AJ became verbally abusive and had Courtney purposely stalked by Coleman Ratcliffe, the strip club owner.
