Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Alexis Davis' (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter Kristina (Lindsey Morgan) recently returned home to Port Charles with a chip on her shoulder and a camera crew filming her every snarky move on General Hospital. After finding out her gangster father strong-armed Yale into accepting her, Krissy quit the Ivy League and has decided to star in a reality show pilot called Mob Princess. Talk about harsh realities for the Corinthos-Davis clan! 

Perhaps Sexis can hop on a flight to Genoa City, Wisconsin to ask mega zillionaire Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his ex-wife, cosmetics mogulette Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), how they coped when their daughter Abby (Marcy Rylan) pitched a similar docudrama entitled The Naked Heiress?

General Hospital's Lindsey Morgan Recounts Screen Testing With Maurice Benard and Nancy Lee Grahn

We Love Soaps caught up with General Hospital newcomer Lindsey Morgan and chatted about her taking over the role of mob princess Kristina Davis.

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: In landing the role of Kristina, you're set up to have lots of scenes with icons like Maurice Benard, Nancy Lee Grahn and Kelly Monaco. What has the chemistry been like? How are you hitting it off with Maurice, that big teddy bear?

Lindsey Morgan: He actually did a screen test, which apparently hadn't been done in like, 20 years, so that was interesting. They actually brought in Maurice and Nancy Lee Grahn to do the test with us, to be in the scene. They filmed on the set, everyone was in the control room, it was up on all the monitors--so it was very interesting.

That was the first time I met Maurice. I had a wardrobe malfunction, so I didn't have a chance to meet him prior. And of course, I went last, and I didn't know what to expect. I had seen his work before and I was kind of shaking in my boots! [Laughter]

But then, I was also exhilarated. And when we were doing the scene, he improvised--he went off of the script and yelled at me. Like, I felt I almost peed my pants or something. [Laughter] It was so intense.

But then, the moment it was done, and they said, "Cut!" he came over and gave me a giant hug, and told me I had cojones!

General Hospital's CarSon vs. DAYS' Lumi: Which Exes Are You Most Ready to See Smooch Next Week?




Days of Our Lives' Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas Horton (Bryan Datillo) have more than their fair share in common with General Hospital's Carly Corinthos-Jacks (Laura Wright) and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Okay, so no, Carly never dressed up as a man to aide terrorists and Sami doesn't own half a hotel, but both women are slightly-recovered schemers, who always go back to their brooding, dark exes when times get tough.

Next week in Salem, Lumi will share a lip lock once Sami learns Autumn has dumped Lucas. Meanwhile, Port Charles' four-time spouses, CarSon will also share a smooch. This particular tongue-wrestling event will follow Connie (Kelly Sullivan) having pulled another scandal involving Carly's current beau Johnny (Brandon Barash), in an attempt to break up Kate (also Sullivan) and Sonny.
