SHOCKER: Lexi Ainsworth DONE at General Hospital?!






We'd hoped it was just a ridiculous rumor, but apparently it's true. One of the best young actresses in soaps is reportedly out of a day job. Daytime Emmy nominee Lexi Ainsworth tweeted tonight that she has filmed her last episode as General Hospital's Kristina Corinthos.

Sorry it seems that I wasn't responding I was asked by Jill and again by Mitch the publicist not to say anything but since it appears to be officially out there I will confirm I shot my last episode at GH yesterday. It's been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I wouldn't trade one second of it even the not so great parts for all that I've learned to prepare me for the next phase of my career. Want to THANK each one of you from the bottom of my heart! Soap fans are the best and I'm so glad to have been part of it's legacy.

Well this news really blows. Ainsworth is hands down the best actress in her age range in daytime and could have truly served GH well as it attempts to fight for survival. Ugh, ugh, ugh! On a positive note, Ainsworth went on to tweet she's booked a movie role opposite soap alums Eric Roberts and Vivica A. Fox. The flick is called So This Is Christmas and Roberts and Fox will portray her dad and stepmom respectively. Good luck to the uber talented Ainsworth in her future endeavors.Talent always rises.

AG: I wouldn't be surprised if NLG went just as nuclear as she did at the Daytime Emmys. She mentioned that Lexi took losing the Emmy in stride, but she(NLG)didn't.

Just another reason why this show continues to suck and deserves to be replaced by the annoying new "Katie" show. TPTB continue to bring on new talent that no one care about while replacing those who actually have talent.

With few new soap fans, GH would be smart to take a page from AMC and bring back the old faces that people love. If they have to continue this stupid mob story, bring back Ian Buchanan as Duke Lavery and then have Tristan Rogers and Finola Hughes back at the police force to close this chapter forever. An Anna love fourangle between Anna, Duke, Sonny, and Robert would be interesting.

Bring Sean and Tiffany back for some humor and mix them up with the Quartermaines somehow.

Bring back AJ and have him mix it up with Jason as Jason struggles with his identity since his surgery.

Leave Genie Francis off the show as she extremely boring and adds nothing of value.

@David46208, you are so right! Not only is he (or she) a troll -- they should stop perpetrating with that photo of JPM that was taken 50 pounds ago, that is an old photo. I am not knocking her current size, because I want to see full-figured women represented, too.

Sadly, JPM is on the crapfest that Y&R has become, so she has about a snowball's chance in hell of ever winning that coveted statuette. Seems as if she has some D-list publicist trolling this site for her.

This is just another example of GH forcing a pairing, instead of letting a story evolve organically.
I will readily admit to not being a fan of any of the Davis girls other than NLG's Alexis. I mostly fault the writers for that fact. While I have no use for the character of Kristina, I have always considered Lexi as a talented young woman who has a bright future ahead of her outside GH. As with the other Davis girls, I always thought the writers changed their minds far too frequently in regards to character direction. Lexi's first scenes were in her skivvies in front of a near 40yo Steve Burton. How embarrassing for everyone involved! But then- she's to be a bookish young innocent girl. Or a bratty teen. Or a victim or date violence. Or a mobster's daughter. Or a sexpot in training. Or,or,or..... Make up your damn minds, GH writers! As with most other younger females on this show, I never know if I'm supposed to like the character or hate them. It's like the writers have ADD and decide to change basic core characteristics simply to fit a new storyline. And that includes all the current pairings on this once great show. Changing basic character traits and in this case, changing the actor, simply to make a couple is wrong on so many levels. When fans of a show are screaming "he/she would never do that!" or "he/she would never want to be with that person now", you know the show is in trouble.
I wish Lexi much success in the future. She seems to be an intelligent young lady who is showing a lot of class during this transition to the next level of her life. I only hope GH can withstand yet another poor casting decision and I pray this is not to facilitate another Fronsie Favorite coming on to eat up more of the show.

OH COME on..anyone that thinks Kris Alderson looks ANY older than Lexi has serious eyeball issues. LOL.. Please.
I think it's pretty funny the recasted KATE with an actress 10 years YOUNGER to play Sonny's "Age"... how's that for ironic?? Hmmm, guess as ladies AGE on soaps, they really need to look younger, and younger girls need to look OLDER.
Guess for the old men sex appeal? Idiots.

Good thing Jill Faren Phelps wasn't around when GH paired a young looking Kimberly McCullough with Steve Burton. Kim would have been out of a job!

KMc still looks younger than she actually is, as does RH. Both women have been paired with Jason at one time or another, and BOTH women looked too young for him at the time. Matter of fact, with the exception of JJ, RH has looked much younger than any man they've ever paired her with. If the writers knew how to write a decent story they could spin it so that the romance between Kristina and Ethan was believable. But no, it's all mob, guns, and sometimes alluded to sex on GH, so of course, they have no idea how to write a blossoming young romance.

I never understood why GH didn't write "teen" stories for Michael and Krissy while leaving Morgan, Molly and Cam as small children for at least four more years until RH looked liked she could be the mother of a teenager instead of having Michael sleeping wth his mother's twin sister. Sick

The version that I am hearing more is that room had to be made for Kristen Alderson once OLTL is wrapped and that she will be the new Kristina and her brother will be a SORASed Morgan.

Puzzled

From Kristen Alderson's Twitter account:

It is 100% rumor that I'm going to General Hospital. No worries guys xo

So, there. Hope this puts that rumor to rest once and for all.

GHFansUnite & Edenpark if you will go to http://www.generalhospitalhappenings.com/rumorville.php and scroll down you will see that there is a video of a actress auditioning for the role of "Gina".Only on the tape she is talking to Johnny (who is off screen).It will become pretty by that scene that she is really auditioning for the part of Kristina and looks like she could play a 25 yr old Kristina.I could be wrong but i have a feeling that the actress in that video is the new Kristina.

I went and watched the audition and I wasnot impressed at all I didn't think the acting was good, the girl did not look that nuch older than kristina she looked more cheaply made up and imo she just wasn't very pretty or a very good actress and if she is not going to be Kristina and is going to be another mob we need her around like I need a whole in my head. Use who we have and quit bringing in new people

rebecca-Thanks for the link. I have to agree with emsnana.(#72) There's not a lot to go on and what I see with this actress I'm not impressed with. I was also "thrown" by the reference she made about being "run down by a rival family"
which sounds like she really may be "Gina." If that's the case, why bring on
someone who resembles LA? But, hey what do I know?... Innocent

I read at DD (take with a G.O.S ) that the "Gina" casting call was just a ruse and it was really a casting call to recast Kristina,like they did with Kate.They also said they could have used the Gina casting call to cast both Kristina and Gina.I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

I say bring her on to Days as a SORAS version of Bo and Hopes daughter Ciara. She could play a 16 yo and they could SORAS Theo too and have a teen romance. She is a great young actress and would be perfect for the part and GH's loss could be Days gain.

^^ I do not blame you one bit for changing your username. GH is beyond bad right now while DAYS has been a pleasure to watch.

I never liked the Kristina character, but this is complete bullshit. Nathan is only 23 and Lexi is 19. It is completely unbelievable for Lexi to be replaced for an older woman when 19 year old chicks date guys older than them everyday. What, are they gonna hire a replacement that's 30? Because if they hire anyone in the 20-25 age range that would be a slap in the face to Lexi. IF they hire a 30 something woman then rationally Nathan should be replaced as well and someone 30 should be hired to play Ethan....saying all that to let it be seen how ludicrous that move was. SMDH Something is damn fishy about this, something else is going on here!

I have read rumors at DD that they are planning to put Kristina with Johnny and that is why they recast her with a older actress.

I for one agree with their decision to recast. I don't think they should turn Kristina into a sexpot or age her, but they should get someone who looks more her age. While Lexi Ainsworth is actually the same age as her character, she looks more like she's 15. I think Lexi is a decent actress, but I hope they get a better one that better fits the part.
