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

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.

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.

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

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 »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
