General Hospital News and Spoilers: Lexi Ainsworth Leaves Door Open For GH Return

Lexi Ainsworth is open to return

Nothing is forever… Lexi Ainsworth is open to return! GH star Lexi Ainsworth quickly became a fan favorite in her role as Kristina Corinthos. The beautiful and talented actress joined the 60 year old daytime drama back in 2009, making her name as the iconic mob boss’s daughter. Instantly, Lexi’s onscreen vibe, and her ability to connection naturally with her TV father carried her through the years.

Like father like daughter, and without a doubt, Lexi was a perfect fit. Consequently, it was like second nature for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his daughter Kristina Davis Corinthos to form and develop their father/daughter bond. At certain points, emotions ran high as Kristina fell victim of domestic violence, and even got caught up in a cult. Needless to mention, Lexi won the hearts of GH fans, especially when it comes to Kristina’s emotional scenes and her’s and Sonny’s dynamic.

Sadly, GH news reports previously confirmed that Ainsworth was leaving the show. Earlier this year, Lexi Ainsworth announced her General Hospital exit. Shortly following the news, the role was recast. Essentially, the role was recast, and Kate Mansi has stepped in as the new Kristina Davis Corinthos.

According to GH news, Lexi opened up about her days working in daytime tv. As it turns out, the 30 year old Daytime Emmy winner hasn’t closed the door on coming back to the genre. In fact, she disclosed that she’d recently auditioned for a soap opera outside of General Hospital.

Lexi Ainsworth Is Open To Return

Ainsworth explained, “I actually did audition for Y&R last year when they were recasting Summer, but that was for more of, like, a blonde bombshell, which I am not. But a lot of people who I loved to work with on GH are on other soaps, like on Y&R, there’s Brytni (Sarpy) and Jason (Thompson, Billy; ex-Patrick, GH) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe; ex-Margaux, GH), who I would love to work with again.”

Evidently, the cards aren’t off the table for Lexi’s GH return. Currently, the role has been recast and Days actress Kate Mansi is doing a wonderful job making Kristina her own. Don’t forget to check back for more GH spoilers, news, updates and more.
