Vinessa Antoine is checking out of General Hospital. Forty eight hours after the actress was interviewed by The Toronto Sun about landing an upcoming role in the new Canadian series Diggstown, Antoine announced via Twitter she will be exiting her role as Jordan Ashford. According to Antoine, the brass over at GH felt she'd be gone too long to continue playing the police commissioner of Port Charles. Antoine tweeted,
No word on Antoine's last airdate. Will the role be recast? Antoine's departure comes on the heels of a casting call GH placed for an African American woman in her 30s who was described as, "Strong, smart & savvy and plays both sides of the law". The call is for a contract role.
