Courtesy/ABC

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?

    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) replied

    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.

  3. jim says:

    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.

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

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

    matthew replied

    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) replied

    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.

    matthew replied

    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 sell that she was scared.

    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?

    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.

    Reply

    Amy replied

    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.

    Best of luck to her, but no they don’t need to recast. GH has way too many non-essential cast members now.

    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.

    Reply

    Caroline replied

    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.

    Reply

    JustSaying replied

    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 replied

    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

  19. Nikki says:

    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.

    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.

  21. Lexi is Kristina says:

    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.

    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.

  26. shaylyn says:

    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 a great character, but she needs good storylines. None of that Trey, reality show crap. In the long run I think Kristina not Michael should take over Sonny’s mob buisness. I can see her as a true mob princess if the right actress takes over the role.
