Tanisha Harper Cast as General Hospital’s New Jordan Ashford

The character of Jordan Ashford is going to live to see another day with casting news on Wednesday that General Hospital has recast the role previously played by Brianna Nicole Henry.

Now comes word via Deadline, that actress/model Tanisha Harper will take over the role of the former police commissioner of Port Charles.

In story, and as GH fans know, Jordan was sent to a medical clinic in upstate, New York since she now only had one kidney, and had a brush with death when she was close to renal failure.  That story facilitated the exit of the Emmy-nominated Henry.

Before Henry’s exit in 2021, actress Vinessa Antoine was the first actress to play Jordan before she left the soap back in 2018.

Look for Harper to make her debut on the ABC daytime drama series in March.

Some of Tanisha’s recent credits include: Hulu’s Dollface, HBO Max’s, Hacks, Netflix’s Dear White People, and the comedy feature Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

So, excited to hear that Jordan is on her way back to the Port Charles canvas? You know, what they say, third time’s a charm! Comment below.

If that’s a current picture, she looks a little young for the part. Are we supposed to believe she’s TJ’s mom??

Tanisha Harper is 40.
Briana Nicole Henry is 30.
Vinessa Antoine is 38.
So the new gal is the oldest of the 3 who have/will portray(ed) TJ’s mom.

Damn… I’m immortal and I don’t look that young. That must be an old picture, right??

Yes, but still not old enough to have a son that’s nearly a doctor. TJ is no Doogie Howser. Jordan should be at least 48 (coincidentally Brook Kerry’s age).

Tanisha Harper is actually 36.

She’s 36, according to Wikipedia.

Tanish Harper is 36.

You are so right, she looks to young

Sorry, I didn’t miss the character — typical clueless soap cop. But with Peter gone and the Jeromes dead or reformed, that means, what? More mob crap to keep the Port Charles PD busy? Just what we needed.

well.. there are rumors on some less than reliable sites that Ryan might soon be getting over his “locked in” health issues… and if not, then his daughter Esme is certainly up to something. Not to mention whatever Victor Cassadine is up to (other than unseasonably warm temperatures)…. so it seems like a perfect time for the PCPD to have at least two cops on duty & one commissioner who’s not on medical leave. So now that Mac is in the hospital, I guess it’s good timing for Jordan to come back? Or they could both run the department…. I’m reasonably certain that Mac would handle that situation far better than Bert Ramsey did, when he had to share power with Anna back in the day.

Congratulations to Tanisha Harper for becoming the fourth person to portray the role of Jordan Ashford, succeeding Vinessa Antoine, Briana Nicole Henry & Tiffany Daniels. I have no doubts she will make the role her own and bring something wonderful to the character.

I hope Jordan get her husband back

Oh great, another “actress/model”. Just like Ramsey. I guess there are no actual actors available who could’ve played the part. Will wait and see obviously but since the story doesn’t interest me anyway I guess I don’t really care.

Many actors, even Oscar winning actors started out as models at some point. Why would that take away from their talent? Educate yourself.

Ramsey? Like Wes Ramsey? He’s a graduate of The Juilliard School, got his start in theater and has worked steadily on television for 20 years. You may not have liked his portrayal of Peter August, but that doesn’t mean he’s not an “actual actor,” as you put it. What an odd comment.

Whynot
Check your facts,you don’t know what the hell you are talking about. We may not have liked Peter but he sure as hell is a skilled actor and a darned good one to make us hate him so much. As far as Tisha Harper, she could be anyone

I guess now that old snoopy Stella realizes what happened to the divorce papers, she’ll get back into the mix. How does Curtis and Jordan not know that nothing has happened with the divorce? I’m liking Portia now and not the new Jordan so much.

I love it, Violet — snoopy Stella. Amen! I don’t think she understands when someone says GET A LIFE, it means get your OWN LIFE, not everyone else’s in town!

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
