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.
