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).

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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!

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
