Alexis and Sonny are once against losing their on-screen daughter Kristina, because the actress playing the role, Lindsey Morgan announced on her facebook page today, that she is leaving the ABC soap and the role of Kristina Davis Corinthos!

Morgan posted to her fans: “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”

So what do you think of the news? Was Morgan’s departure a long time coming? Who do you think would be a good replacement for the role of Kristina, when ABC decides to recast it?

Kristen alderson to be the new Kristina?

I feel that would be a miscast. I think Kristen might return as Serena Baldwin, Scottys daughter?

I think KA will be the new Serena Baldwin, actually. Great scenes with Lucy and Scott! This news comes as no surprise really. Good luck to Lindsey. I’m sorry to say that she was doomed. Lexi was so popular and Lindsey just didn’t work as Kristina. I wonder if they will recast or hold off … I would vote to hold off. The character just doesn’t add anything to the canvas right now.

I don’t see the point of recasting either. The character isn’t that pivotal.

I’m sorry to hear Lindsey is departing GH, but I saw the writing on the wall. Her talent’s were mis-used in the role. The writers did not write enough story for her. She could’ve connected more with Michael, but she didn’t. Sad to see talent gone.

ITA they didn’t write to her strengths and wasted her entire time on GH pimping some new character creation of RC’s. It was obvious by her 2nd month that they had no interest in Kristina as a standalone character but rather a prop for Trey, Starr, Konnie,etc.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Kristina should have had more scenes as a sister and college student, or being someone strong. But instead, they made her dumb. The writing team wasted her talent. I could think of millions of storylines for Krissy under Lindsey’s portrayal. Pure and utter shame.

I already read about her departure. She was just starting to grow on me…but im certain she’ll grow as an actress and find work elsewhere. I was hoping Kristina and Johnny( b4 Brandon left) would have a prison romance that ended with Kristina pregnant just to see Sonnys reaction, and how it would play out. For me…that wouldve been something. i wish Lindsey the best.

I am not shocked ..
GH is always bring new in and others leave, never a dull moment..

I do like the vets back and the new characters brought in to keep things fresh, new stories with all..
GH is a rolling stone that gathers no moss..

(I wonder if she left or was let go, either way looking forward to the new coming in)

No big loss. I don’t think she ever fit into the role of Christina. Now that the Christina-Trey storyline is done bring back Lexi Ainsworth.

Lexi is on a primetime series, plus Lexi sucked as Kristina. I never bought her as an actress, period.

matthew

Lexi was a much better actress but yeah they both pretty much sucked. One had the chops but no sex appeal and the second had sex appeal and zero chops. Next time make sure the actress has both. Geez GH.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I disagree; Lexi was not a better actress. I don’t believe Lexi was nor is that great of an actress. And her in the role of Kristina is too hyped for something that is sub-par. Lindsey has fantastic acting potential.

I thought Lexi was fantastic with the battered girlfriend storyline and when she cried she actually haf tears somthing nu Kristina could never seem to accomplish. She looked ridiculous trying to do emotional scenes and even more ridiculous weilding that baseball bat at Connie. I think she’s a horrific actress, Which is why they let her go. I remember a really pivitol scene with Lexi and Nancy Grahn when they were sitting at the dining room table crying, mascara running all over the place and compare that to nu kristina tied to a chair being held hostage and couldn’t even… Read more »

Saw the writing on the wall here but I wonder why they didn’t just have Kristina & Trey go off together. No big whoop though really… I never liked that storyline until Trey died.

If Lexi Ainsworth can’t return how about just sending Kristina back to college for a few years? the GH canvas is pretty full right now so her abscence would not leave a big void.

Lexi got cast in a tv show.

She got cast in a pilot there’s a difference. Pilot may or may not be picked up.

I thought she looked too old at first (to play Christina) but she really grew on me. I hated when Trey died, I would rather her have gone to L.A. with him & been happy. She is so gorgeous & could totally belong to Alexis & Sonny. I don’t want her to go but they don’t need to recast either. There are PLENTY of characters right now. The second Christina was the most adorable one-anyone remember her?

katie

I agree w you. She definitely looks like a davis/corinthos child. I wish they had written her a more interesting storyline. It would have been fun 2 watch her follow in sonny’s footsteps….a real mob princess

Not that I really enjoyed her that much as Kristina but they get rid of her but keep Kristen Alderson! I think they should just let them both go. If KA is not playing Starr then I don’t care if she is on the show. I only liked her as Starr.

Amy
Guest

She has a contract. They had to give her a new role, and it could not be Starr, obviously. It’s a soap, you have to go with the flow.

If the timing had been better, Johnny would have escaped from prison and Kristina went with him.

She was never really a good Kristina, came off to hard. I do hope they recast. Kristina could be such a great character. I would love to see the right Kristina in a relationship with Milo.I don’t want KA to play her, I basically want her to play Star, but with a different name & be with Michael.

LOL…in a relationship with MiILO???!! Kristina is written as a brilliant girl…Alexis Davis brilliant. Milo? Not so much…

Very sorry to see her go . . She was a good kristina just never given the scenes to make her shine.Kristina is a pivitol character to the show and needs to be recast

sad to see her go, but what bothers me most is everyone saying that GH canvas is overflowing with to many people… Look at Luke and Lauras wedding in the 80’s the cast was huge and so manay charactors had screen time….GH’s cast is nothing like it used to be………..visit past shows and read the credits amazing how many people the show employed.

I blame it all on Jason. As soon as SB left the show, the whole mob storyline was dropped and there was nothing left for Joe, Trey and Kristina. If anything, Jason was being propped more than Sabrina.

I wish Lindsey the best of luck. She earned it.

Caroline
Guest

That Story with Joe was boring, pointless and should’ve never happened. Jason had nothing to do with it, the writers lack of vision did.

JustSaying
Guest
JustSaying

Not so much. That story was starting to get interesting. Tracy finally had a love interest (of sorts). Trey wasn’t a dirtbag like his father. And Joe had connections to Jerry Jacks.

But it all ended when SB left. And I still don’t know why Bernie was murdered and why Sonny’s assets are in Kristina’s name.

Caroline
Guest
Caroline

The Joe actor was awful. He sounded like he was whistling through his dentures. He was bad on Passions too. It was such an odd hire

Nikki

I never warmed up to her in the role. For me, Lexi Ainsworth made such a mark on Kristina that I don’t think Lindsey’s reincarnation was enough or me to forget that and accept her in the role. However, she was pretty talented so I think this is just the beginning for her.

I hope they’ll recast because I do think there is so much more they can do with the Kristina character.

CTwildheart

While this actress looked like she was a Corinthos/Cassadine child…she never really worked in the role for me.
I wish they would’ve let her and Trey go off to California or have her go back to college…
I think she definitely grew as an actress while at GH and I wish her well.

Lexi is Kristina

Lexi is Kristina

Lindsey Morgan should have been cast as Sabrina. The character of Kristina should have been left off-canvas. Lexi Ainsworth is the only Kristina I’d want to see back on GH. That probably won’t happen (which is good for L.A. since she is now moving on to primetime and movies).

If the rumor about Nathan Parsons’ Ethan being in bed with Helena is true, I sure hope Connie Towers is old enough for him.

Epic fail ALL around.

Keep the role open for a while; maybe they can get Lexie Ainsworth back as Christina. I didn’t dislike Lindsay as Christina, especially after Trey’s death. I’m just not sure what they can do with her character right now with so many vets on the canvas (YAY!!). Now please dump the whole Connie/Kate mess and move on.

Caroline
Guest

I never found Lexi Ainsworth anything special in the role. She didn’t have the soap opera look and yes Kristina was always supposed to be a vixen even back when Lexi first started.

With the heavy makeup Lindsay did look like Alexis and Sonny’s daughter but yeah her acting was horrendous. I totally agree with the person that mentioned her emotional scenes. She looked terrible in any scene that required crying I hated those faces she made like she was trying too hard to make up for the lack of tears. Beautiful girl but she really needs some acting classes. I lijed Lexi but Kristina was annoying when she played the character, that was due to bad writing. If they could find the right actress (for the love of…not KA) Kristina could be… Read more »

General Hospital

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
