TVLine is reporting that "General Hospital" has recast the role of Kristina Adela Corinthos Davis, previously played by Lexi Ainsworth, who left in October.
Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis' (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter will now
be played by Lindsey Morgan, who has previously had roles on "Happy
Endings" and "How I Met Your Mother." She will make her debut in Port
Charles on May 22.
Morgan confirmed the announcement on her Twitter page today. "I finally
get to talk about it! Officially playing Kristina on General Hospital!
Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina) took to Twitter in
regards to the recast and stated, "Thank you guys for all your support
but I won't be reprising the role of Kristina. I loved her but I've also
loved being free to do film. I enjoyed meeting Frank & I know you
will love the new Kristina that he has found. I learned so much from my
'GH' home & want to grow further."
Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) also sounded off and tweeted, "Lexi's already got offers for many Primetime projects. She didn't want to sign contract & Kristina contract role. IMO she made the right decision."
