Great news this morning out of Soap Opera Digest!  One of the most talented young actresses out there, Lexi Ainsworth is returning to her role as Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) daughter, Kristina Davis on General Hospital!

The Daytime Emmy nominated Ainsworth (she received a nod in 2011), played the role from 2009-2011, and then the series decided to age the character and brought in actress Lindsey Morgan who was last on the Port Charles canvas in 2013!

Viewers should anticipate seeing Lexi make her re-emergence on GH sometimes in late August/early September!’

Excited on-screen mom, Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted about the news: “#davisgirls in the house. #gh @_lexiainsworth @kellymonaco1 @haley_pullos. Mama’s happy!!!”  Meanwhile, Haley Pullos tweeted her excitement on the news:  “GUYS im being reunited with my sister!!!!!!! @_lexiainsworth ive missed you so much ”

Lexi has been busy performing in other film and TV projects including her recent 2015 feature with Y&R’s Hunter King (Summer), “A Girl Like Her”.  Ainsworth has also been studying at Wesleyan University.

What do you think of the news of Lexi returning to GH? Comment below!

The right role is coming back to the show, but the wrong actress is portraying her. Lindsey Morgan fit so much better in the role of Kristina, if only the writing had supported the abilities she has as an actress.

This is exciting, Lexi was always great in the role of Christina, and for me, Lindsey Morgan wasn’t a strong actress in my opinion. I love Lexi Ainsworth and am grateful she’s coming back, she always had nice chemistry with Nancy, Maurice, and the young actress who plays Molly.

I take it you haven’t seen the 100? Lindsey Morgan is amazing on it. I think she is a great actress. But her Kristina wasn’t my favorite. Lexi got better writing. I can barely recall the stories with Lindsey’s Kristina. I’m sooo happy they brought Lexi back. Its about time!

Lindsey Morgan was not up the challenge of working with MB or NLG. They are powerhouses, and she simply was not. I was glad to see her go, and I was also glad the role wasn’t recast right away. I’ve always thought that Lexi should come back, so it’s great to see that happen.

Kristina has always been insecure where Sonny is concerned, and now, with a new baby sister, it should be interesting. I do see her pairing well with NuDillon.

Lindsey Morgan never had the material to act against Nancy, who is an excellent actress. Lindsey is a powerhouse, and was not given the right material or storyline to showcase how excellent her acting talents. Lexi is a sub-par actress, who whined non-stop in her portrayal of Kristina.

From the two looks of it, Kristina takes after Alexis…lol…maybe she will be a new love interest for Dillion…after they send Valerie chopping…i mean packing…lol

Dillon is the only one for Kristina. Because the rest of the male cast is related to her.

Spot on, jimh! That was my very first thought, too, but you beat me to the punch! (Congratulations!)…LOL…Having said that, I’m not thrilled with this announcement….I want LESS exposure for Alexis, et al, and I’m not just referring to her cleavage! Bringing back another of her three daughters by three different men will add nothing to the show. Quite frankly, the only one who makes a whit of difference is Sam….the rest of the Davis-Corinthos-Lansing clan could go away forever and not be missed!

Me too…i wouldnt miss them—rarely pay attention when they are on…more entertaining removing lint from my belly button…lol…i liked NG so much better on Santa Barbara with Lane Davies who played Mason…i miss that soap!!!

Perhaps she’s the girl Dillon had a relationship with in LA? He clearly didn’t recognize Morgan, so it’s likely he wouldn’t have recognized Kristina, either. She just would have had to have been going under a different name, or last name, anyway, which wouldn’t be much of a stretch given how she left town.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Could be…prefer her with Dillon over Val!!!

Ha, you might be right. At least I can accept some bit of history there to tie things into her returning. I like Dylan. Lulu is wasting her time with that dull drip Dante – he can have Big Cheese Valerie.

@jimh….I hear you on the SB sentiment! NLG and Lane Davies were absolute poetry in motion….it almost beggars belief that the sublime Julia Wainwright has morphed into the mediocre Alexis Davis!

This is the first right thing Passante & Altman are doing. Hopefully, she doesn’t come back with a music box full of precious gems, a murder mystery, and an evil secret twin.

Passanante and Altman don’t have control of who comes and goes, that’s up to Frank and ABC. All they do is write the entrances/exits for the characters.

@Jimmy… However they can SUGGEST certain actors for the roles…
Like Ron did with Maura for Ava….

I could’ve done without her returning there are already so many kids we don’t see on the show that are young & being raised Cameron, Adian, Josslyn unless your Spencer or Jake the rest must be locked in a closet.

i think this is great news,love lexi, although i was also a fan of linsey morgan, both actress great, but lexi didn’t deserve to loose her role just cause RG and JFP thought she was to young for the role.. can’t wait to see her with molly.

that’s fine – i really like the actress & her character is an offspring of two well established people on the canvas – but my question is are we going to see an interesting story for this character…………
gh cast is huge right now – are interesting storylines going to be coming for them……..
i say get rid of some of the unnecessary dead weight before tptb start bringing on more characters………….

I didn’t care for LA in the role of Kristina at all. I guess I’ll add this character to the list of fast forwards that is becoming increasingly large.

Yes!
Lexi/Ainsworth is a great return!
It is obvious RC was in process of building up the Corinthos and Davis family before he was let go..
To bring her in takes wheeling and dealing and approval, it was RC..
Ron also brought back Morgan and Dillion Q, and a Spenser, keeping the families alive !

I hope she will be written well .. Seems RC had looked ahead to some good family stuff..
Keeping the families going is a good thing..

Dear GH – please allow Kristina to be a LOT more mature than she was before, she has the potential to be way more than a whiney brat.

That Lindsey Morgan interpretation of the character was horrid!! She always looked like she was frowning even when she was smiling. Was so happy when she left.

To me, this is good news! She’s a talented actress with a fan base on the show. I think it’s time for the character to be back on the canvas. Maybe we’ll see more of Molly now. I wasn’t crazy about the writing and recast last time, but I was not as against it as some. Anyone else think it’s a good time to think about recasting Ethan?? Don’t get me wrong– LOVE Nathan Parsons & know it would be really hard to find a replacement that works. But Nathan isn’t coming back for anything long term, and w/ Luke… Read more »

If anything, I would want them to recast Lucky. I know it would be a monumental task, since Jonathan Jackson is so amazing and well-liked in the role, but there have been other actors to play Lucky in the past, and no shortage of great actors out there. It doesn’t make sense why Lucky is staying away either, aside from JJ not being able to rejoin the show permanently. Plus, if Lucky returns to the PCPD, that means that hopefully Nathan can leave town and never return. I can’t stand Ryan Paevey, and I don’t understand why Nathan is almost… Read more »

This is great news, she is a wonderful actress. I am so happy Lexi is coming back. Now they need to bring back Emily and Alan Quartermaine. They are not dead at all, Rumor is Helena has them hostage.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Not sure about Alan, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Helena has Emily stowed away somewhere. My theory was that Nikolas’ true motive for taking over ELQ is so that he could give it to Helena in exchange for Emily being revived, so he could have his true love back.

All I see when I read this is another Corinthos kid which means more screen time for Sonny…

Yay! Yay! Yay! I love her in that role. I just wish she had been there with Nathan Parsons… they had some really great scenes together.

yes, Lexi and Nathan Parsons (Ethan) really did have fabulous chemistry. And, I thought how great it would be if Christina and Ethan were reunited and, it’s said Ethan is already gone…but, definitely not forgotten. Maybe, Nathan Parsons can return to GH again. He was fabulous in the return earlier in the month.

Great news! I always loved Lexi as Kristina, and didn’t understand why they chose to recast the role. Lindsey Morgan never fit right with the role, and didn’t have the acting chops to pull it off. She’s busy with The 100 now anyway. Very happy to see Lexi back, and Kristina too. It’s been far too long, and the younger set needs to be beefed up.

Hopefully the next moves GH makes are to either recast or get rid of Kiki, and bring back Serena Baldwin.

Ces
Guest

I’m in favor of just eliminating Kiki altogether. The name alone grates on my every last nerve!

Jimmy
Guest

Agreed, for the life of me I don’t understand why they didn’t just call her by her real name – Lauren. Or, her middle name could even be shortened to Katie. But why Kiki? It sounds like a name you’d give a dog.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.

GH’s Holly Set Ablaze; Show Reveals Stunt Double For Emma Samms From Major Cliffhanger

If you caught the end of Tuesday’s fiery episode of General Hospital, you know that Holly (Emma Samms) who was cornered by the PCPD, ended up on fire when the cabin she was in went up in flames!

In the cliffhanger, Holly was seen on fire coming out of the cabin.  Of course, viewers knew that a stunt double would have to be called in to tape such a moment, and that is exactly what the ABC daytime drama series did.

On Wednesday, GH’s official Instagram released a photo of Samms and stunt performer Colby Lemmo stating: “We’re seeing double! 🔥 Let’s give stunt performer @colby_lemmo a hand for helping bring yesterday’s explosive finale to life. 👏👏👏 ”

Lemmo has performed stunts for major motion pictures and TV shows  including: The Mandalorian, Westworld, Criminal Minds, 9-1-1. and many others.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to Holly? We know that Emma Samms only returned to GH for a limited-run to reprise her signature GH role.

Does this mean that Holly might be recast with a new face, if she is badly burned and disfigured … or is this just an exit strategy where the character gets sent away to heal from her burns … or was that not really Holly who came out of the cabin?  Three possible theories that fans are pondering.

So, what did you think of the fiery conclusion of yesterday’s GH? What do you think will happen to Holly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.
