Photo: IMDB

Since Vinessa Antoine is exiting General Hospital to star in new Canadian drama series Diggstown, the powers-that-be at the series have decided to recast the role of Jordan Ashford, as previously noted.

Now comes word today from Soap Opera Digest that GH has found their new commissioner as actress Briana Nicole Henry steps in to the role at the PCPD.

Henry will begin shooting new episodes this month, which means look for nuJordan to appear sometime in September on the ABC drama series. Antoine has played the role since 2014.

This is not Briana’s first foray into soaps; while attending USC she was tapped for a recurring role on The Young and the Restless. 

In primetime she has appeared on” NBC’s Undateable, CW’s Jane the Virgin, ABC’s Stitchers, and more recently the HBO movie, Insecure. 

So, ready to give Briana a chance as the recast Jordan?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Absolutely, she’ll be given a chance by me. Unfortunately I don’t watch the show anymore these days, but if the show can lure me back, I’d be interested in checking out the new actress.

I will sincerely miss Vinessa Antoine, but she is going to shine on Diggstown, and I am hoping that an American network or streaming platform picks the series up! As for her replacement, welcome Briana Nicole Henry! I wish her nothing but the best; I vaguely remember her from The Young and the Restless, and feel as if she’s going to be great in the role!

I am absolutely ready to give her a chance. All actors coming onto the show, whether they are recasts or not, deserve the opportunity to show what they can do and what they can bring to the show. Sometimes the recasts are better than the actors they are replacing (and sometimes they are not). So, welcome Ms. Henry to GH and the role of Jordan!

I’m gonna go with you on that, Mister Media. Some recasts (Billy Miller and Gina Tognoni on Y&R; Laura Wright on GH) have been spectacular successes, so why not give the gal a chance?

The Jordan character has No Purpose.
That character is void of a personalty= blah.
Jordan should have been gone a long time ago.

Curtis should be the commissioner.

So, as for the recasting of Jordan well, it was not necessary, and I am not feeling anything over it.

SuOOO, maybe she will bring more to the role of Jordan, than V.A. Maybe it wasn’t the character we didn’t care for, so hopefully our newbie will bring in a breath of fresh air. I remember liking her on Y&R. Hey, I am trying to convince myself here too!

Hi Violet ..
It has nothing to do with the actor its the character.
Jordan is beyond empty. She does nothing of interest
Jordan is just there like wallpaper.
I highly doubt these writers will do anything differently with the character.

0ooh lordy! the/her upcoming ‘therapy’ session – I will FF through that stale junk, I have zero interest in watching their therapy 0ooh for the boring misery. LOL

Jordan needs to be recreated and given a gripping personality other than a doorknob.

@su…You have so nailed the very essence of the character of Jordan…save for her initial appearance as TJ’s long-absent mother, she’s never had any real point for existing in Port Charles….most especially as a really ineffectual PCPD commish when GH already had plenty of others who could have far more plausibly filled that role: Mac, Anna or even a returning Scorpio or Frisco. It never made any sense to put this character in that position just as a means of keeping her in town. I also didn’t care for her pairing with Curtis…he could do much better, so I guess I agree with Aunt Stella on that matter! Lol….Still, having said that, I already find this recast more appealing and likable…

Hi, Shabelle,
Agreed! I like Mac and Felicia….and, Jordan is not relevant: well put ny you and su.
Curtis is HOT!! Thus, if we must have a Jordan, I’d rather see Briana strut her pumps…..

She def looks more like a commissioner than Vinessa. I liked her a lot but just did not like her as the commissioner.. Good luck to both!!

She wasn’t going to go from front burner storyline to back burner…

Me as well, Susan. But I am hoping that MM will play Curtis’s ex girl friend whom Stella contacted. She would be amazing with Curtis. I can already see the fireworks….or the train going through the tunnel–choose your favorite metaphor.

From the first time “Jordan” was introduced, everything about the character seemed pretty bogus. She’s a DEA agent who just happens to be assigned to bust the Jerome organization in the same little town where she sent her son TJ to live years earlier. Then when she can’t bust Julian, she’s fired from the DEA and somehow winds up as some “special agent” who is supposed to bust Sonny, but all she does is arrest Sonny’s underling (Shawn) for a crime (shooting Hayden) he didn’t even commit. And for all that she’s rewarded with the job of Police Commissioner! Most of the time she just stands around wondering what’s going on while other people are out doing the legwork. It’s such a stupid character, I can’t believe they’re even recasting it.

Fanny

She is lovely!

Susan

She looks like she will fit in perfectly. Very pretty and same hair like the previous Jordan 🙂

Except, Susan, Briana’s hair is her own.

I agree with a few others; why is Jordan police commissioner to begin with? They got rid of Mac, replaced him with Anna and replaced her with Jordan. So they took two vets, one who they discarded from the show completely to make a completely new character the the head of the police. It’s beyond obvious that this is attempted “diversity.” There should be a way of incorporating people from all backgrounds on to shows (and not just African Americans) without getting rid of established beloved characters like Mac who should have stayed the commish.

With that said I like Vinessa; liked her since another show I’d seen her on “Being Erica” and I wish her well in her new endeavor. I’m not familiar with this actress but she’s stunning.

Rebecca, as I said before, Jordan would have made a much better floor manager at Forever 21. I really never saw her as a police commissioner. Civilians are constantly solving crimes for her as well as apprehending criminals, and yet, she accepts the credit for a job well done. I am afraid this character has been written as being dumber than a box of rocks.
But I bet she’d be fantastic at merchandising the Forever 21 stock!

Hey, Harry! Long time; I just mentioned you were MIA. Glad to see you’re back.

Maybe with a new actress they’ll also think of a more creative story for the character, starting with dumping her ummmmmm…behind…as the commissioner and reinstating Mac. Ugh. That’s not going to happen….

I do not like the recasting Vinessa was so amazing I am going to have difficulty accepting this new acter who is nothing like Vinessa in any shape or form.
This is so sad and difficult!!+

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.
