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

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 character needs a little cooling off period. Let Krissy go back to Yale and get her degree. Then she can return as a med student.

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.

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.... Innocent

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).

swan Queen AMEN!!

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.

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 preferred Lexie. I certainly am not happy someone has lost a job. I hope she finds success elsewhere and soon.

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... Innocent
