Lindsey Morgan Leaving General Hospital!


Kristina Davis-Corinthos is leaving General Hospital again. Lindsey Morgan announced today on her Facebook page that she will be departing her role as Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis' (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter. 

It is with a heavy heart I have to announce that my time at Port Charles has come to an end. I’m not sure where Kristina is headed next but it was a beyond amazing opportunity to portray her…be part of the Davis Girls…have the Corinthos’ passion and temper run though my veins and to witness history being made on this momentous show! I learned so much and am so grateful for the friendships I’ve made and experiences I’ve had. GH will always have a special place in my heart and I cannot thank y’all enough for tuning in loyally to watch me live my dream. But more importantly, THANK Y’ALL for your endless love, letters, support, encouragement, kind words, even the little hello’s or a sweet smiley face…that love kept me going when I had difficulty navigating through Kristina’s and my own journey this past year. Whenever I felt lost, I never truly felt alone and for that, I am eternally gratefully. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your love. Thank you. Now keep watching GH!! The Nurses’ Ball is mere days away!!
All my love and see you on the next adventure,
xoxo
Lindsey

    I still question why she was hired in the first place! Clearly, the casting director didn’t look hard enough….

    Hopefully, they will do a better job the next time around!!! Or just keep Krissy offscreen!!!

    Well it’s about TIME!!!

    I really see no reason for the character to be on screen. What’s she gonna do there? And besides, the Davis girls have slowly gone to the side of irritating. Molly with her whiny screechy fickleness, Alexis as the mother hen who is really clueless about what is going on in that household, and even Sam, who is supposed to be this strong, kick-ass, yet she gets constantly put to the “Damsel in distress” category. Yep, I’ve had enough helpings of the Davis girls for a while.

    Look I know you all had a problem with her, but as far as I’m concerned Kristen Alderson is 10 times worse, and the only reason she still has a job is because of her tenure at OLTL. I swear, if they don’t cut back on her shrieking & wax those eyebrows like a big girl I will never accept her as a grown up.

    She seems like a nice girl but thank goodness, she was sooo painful to watch! Definitly the weakest link and im suprised they didnt recast sooner. Good luck to her though. She needs to hit Tasha Smiths acting class.

    [quote=Nk3play2][quote=The_Moustache]someone call Lexi Ainsworth![/quote] Fuck that…. Someone call Francia Raisa!!!![/quote]

    Considering that Secret Life is over and done with…that might not be a bad idea.

    Then again, she IS in her mid 20s…

    Oh… I completely disagree, Kristen Alderson did great with what they wrote for Starr; however, Sonny and Alexis’s daughter can’t be blond haired and blue eyed, it just wouldn’t make sense. Even if she was Ned’s daughter, it wouldn’t make sense!!!

    I also hope they don’t cast Kristen as Kristen. First of all she’s a blond so it wouldn’t work. Second, heck I just don’t want her back!

    But it’s about time she left. This new regime loved her. They kept throwing her in our face as soon as she arrived in PC but nothing she ever did clicked. That’s why Trey (a promising character) was killed. Apparently after Brandon left, they couldn’t do that Kristina/Johnny love story they wanted (which would not have made sense anyway. Why would Kristina be at Penville?)

    Thank goodness they listened to the viewers. Hopefully us viewers will get louder when it comes to Sabrina. Hopefully that actress will leave to do the Jodi Arias Lifetime movie they are planning and be off GH!

    Then she would be playing the sister of her former love interest… that’s all kinds of wrong.

    I’m sure Lindsay is a very nice girl, but she was in way over her head. Utterly laughable in those emotional scenes during Trey’s death.

    I have really liked Kristen Alderson on GH, way more than i ever did on OLTL actually. I think Kristen was showing growth on GH and her performance level seemed to be rising. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she is around a whole new company of actors.

    Lindsey Morgan tried. I’ll give her that. But the clock has run out. I wish her luck and it would really be best if Lexi Ainsworth returns in the role. I’d be fine with Kristina just leaving town for the foreseeable future too.

    The cast is so large right now that I honestly will not miss having Kristina around. I think her whole plotline with Trey was a victim of trying to tell too many stories at once, and after they killed Trey off, it was apparent they didn’t have any other ideas for Kristina. I hope LM will do well for herself; having GH on her resume will certainly help her future career aspirations.

    Just please please please don’t recast the role with Alderson. I can just see them dying her hair dark, and passing her off as Sonny’s kid. As for her blue eyes, Alexis’ sister (Kristina’s namesake) had blue eyes, as does Sonny’s father, Mike.

    Now if we can get rid of Michael… I know (think) there is a story there, as to why Chad Duell left initially, but Sean Kanan came back…

    I really hope Kristen Alderson does not come back at all. I loved her on OLTL, but not at all on GH. Didn’t she move to LA initially to try some new things. Go ahead, sweetie, try them. Please.

    Okay for all you people hoping that they bring back Lexi, your obviously people who are not rational. the girl is underdeveloped!!!! She still looks like a little girl it does not look right on the show. Lexi needs to remain on ABC family.

    She is a dwarf…. They would not be able to match her up with anyone. If she was around the same age range as Molly perhaps we could of had another Brenda, Karen, Jagger, Jason type story. But the little girl does not emanate sex. She is not sexy at all.That is why they let her go in the first place.

    Lastly this whole hating Kirsten Alderson stitch is getting pretty tiring. I will try to be kind and say this. I do not want her playing another character. I grew up with little Starr Manning and the demise of the character will be devastating to OLTL fans. Kristen has done an amazing job on GH. I have seen much growth in her acting and I love the fact that she is a happy young lady. I do not want her to be placed in the role of Kristina Davis. But let me get back to you haters. You MOFO’s need to just STFU. Some of you like people who are abhorrent on screen and your picking on Kristen? Please none of you were fans of OLTL and obviously are not go judges of acting. So do us a favor, go drink some 40% liquor and seat down watch GH and enjoy it. And please remember to keep your hates to yourself. Unless its about Connie/Cate.

    You are the type of douchebag fan that probably got her ousted. You can not be on a soap if you are short. She is in her 20s! If freaking old Destiny on OLTL can be on a soap and get knocked up by a Buchanan then Lexi Ainsworth can be in a relationship.

    And you are the MOFO that needs to STFU crying from behind your screen.

    Yes couples have to look like models and look exactly alike.

    What about Katrina Darbo on DOOL? She was short and fat! That dude that dated or married her on the show was so unrealistic.

    Now don’t I sound like an ass just like you?

    Wow

    Doesn’t matter she can only return in a recurring role (according to Lexi) and if Frank and Ron want the role to be a contract role she won’t be back
    so you can get your wish.

    Lexi, Haley, Kelly chemistry was awesome.

    It wont do any good to recast the part, there is nothing for kristina to do on canvas. She has no love interest or careeer aspirations. And no to KA in the role of kristina. She is to white and she and lexie are to youthful looking to play a romanctic lead.

    Now that Lexi has been cast in a primetime series she won’t be coming back to GH. She is only 21 and this is a huge break for her.

    Have Kristen Alderson stop bleaching her hair and go to her real dark hair or just put some miss clairol in it and call it a day and have her be Kristina. Her acting is as bad as LM’s so we won’t even know it is a recast.

    @katehhoward….with those mean words I would think Connie was typing and not the classy Kate.

    Lexi was a good actress and very cute. Kimberly McCullough was never the typical leading lady but the audience loved her. I think the same can be said for Lexi. Not all of us age as badly/quickly as others and why should Lexi be punished for that? Simply write it into the story that she looks young for her age.

    As for Alderson, the girl can’t act. She has had over 15 years to learn and hasn’t. She got away with being a cute kid, but by the time her teen years hit OLTL should have cut her loose. The cuteness was gone and she never bothered to learn to act.

    The writing was on the wall for this one. Whatever acting choices were being followed did little to shepherd the character, as well as the actress into a place where she could grow the role. The sad part is the girl has talent but it was mismanaged and LA, I believe, left a definite lasting impression on how, if sensitively written, Kristina could have been developed. The way LM’s Kristina was “hurled” at us in broad, unsubtle strokes put two strikes against her from the get-go and the “Mob Princess” reality show angle was a sledge hammer of a story with virtually no redeeming value. Hard to come back from that type of debacle unless you’ve got the chops of someone of FH or JE’s caliber…and I think even they would have had a difficult time making us have sympathy for something that was so ham fistedly written.

    If they’ve sent any casting calls out for this role, they’ve been very quiet about it. Personally, I’d prefer they send the character off canvas for a long while rather than clutter up an already swollen to the gills roster.

    As for KA in the role? Oy! Please. Just. No…. 0:)

    Kimberly Mc was allowed to grow up and mature as an actress and a young woman on GH. TPTB did not have time to wait and see if Lexi A. was going to mature as a woman to bring the role of Kristina to the next level (romantic lead).

    As for some of the other posts, im sad to see all the vitriol, Remember this is a young lady in one of her first – if not her first – major role. While I preferred Lexi in the role, Lindsey seemed like a sweet young lady. I don’t see why some of you have to dance on the grave here.

    ICAM! I always thought that Lexi. A.’s appearance worked with her character and not against it. I’m still a little bitter that I never got my Ethina “Summer On The Run” story.

    When Bobbie Spencer mentioned Lucas not settling down, and we cut to Felix… did anyone else think of Blake Hood as Lucas? I thought of him as Dillon Quartermaine, but damn! I could picture him as Lucas!

    I don’t think anyone is surprised by this news. She just was not right for the part, too old and harsh looking and her acting was not the best. I guess with Brandon B leaving, (if they were thinking of having Krissy and Johnny get involved with her working at the prison), they must have decided to just let her go, since most fans did not like her.

    Guess what I come from Brooklyn so we sometimes have to go hard on some of you haters.

    Kimberly was always set up with guys who matched her age range. When they tried with Jason when she was 16 it did not work and they paired her up with Stone. That became a whole new life for the character. Problem with Lexi is that times have changed. Unless they do a rape story like they did with Elizabeth, it wont work. The DID story could have better worked for Kristina rather than Cate/Connie. Lexi has no sex appeal and they only guy I think she would look really cute with on the show would of been Rafe.

    I must say that lately coming on here is like a tale of two roads – and as much as Lindsay was not my cup of tea – I will take the high road here because I don’t like anyone not having a job

    My only thing is WHY couldn’t a blonde be used as Kristina, her paternal grandfather was fair, her maternal aunt was a redhead….shoot I lived with Leslie-Lu being a raven haired beauty her entire young life only to be smacked with a Blonde named Julie Berman.

    I’m echoing soapbaby — post #33 was off the charts nysam! If any more help is needed to put katehoward in her/his place, i’m more than happy to do so. Lexi Ainsworth had that *something special* that can’t be put into words. Frankly i am shocked she is 21 — she def. looked younger than that — but she was getting RAVE REVIEWS across the board during that whole abuse story. So please THINK before you type Katehoward, b/c i — being a soap viewer since ’78-’79 — can think of a million other examples over the years of soap talent that never had typical looks and definitely won over fans.

    Additionally — you aren’t the ultimate judge of what good acting is and what isn’t. We all just have our opinions, and nothing else. Acting wise, Kelly Sullivan pretty much blows away the prior actress playing Kate (don’t know her name off hand), but ppl have issues more with the draggy, overexposed story. Even if Kelly is too young for Maurice by some accounts, you can obviously tell –if paying close attention — that they feed off each other as actors and genuinely like/love working together. Watching Kate 1.0 — even if she had the steely fashion maven part down pat — was sorta like watching paint dry.

    I also think shoving KA into the middle of queen Genie’s return scenes with JMB, well that was like the nail in the coffin! Not to mention giving half of the club to this nitwit. I don’t dislike KA as a person, i know almost nothing about her, but unfortunately she gets the blame for being CarTini’s pet — fairly, or unfairly.

    Lindsey Morgan is a beautiful girl, no doubt she will be able to find work soon. I also don’t think she was a terrible actress. The character of Kristina really had no focus, and with the garbage Ron C had written for the character, I’m nor sure if any actress could have ‘found’ that character.

    With the right material, the character could have been relevant IMO. And for the love of God, I do NOT want to see Kristen Alderson as Serena Baldwin. They can dye her hair dark brown, and make her another one of Spinelli’s nerd girls…a friend of Ellie or something. Or she can be the lost Q heir, who is said to be a royal (B-word)!

    Ding-ding-ding!!! We have a winnah!!! And yes, like LM, KA is a polite and charming young woman in person. But, instead of GRADUALLY weaving her into the canvas, TPTB patched her in too obviously. Like a tear in a prominent place on a nice piece of clothing, the patch serves a purpose in the mending process, but sticks out drawing too much attention to the original tear in the fabric. I won’t say anything about the acting angle, nor what I saw as an “intrusion” into Julie and Genie’s “reunion” scene. I’ve had my say on that aspect… 0:)
