According to the rep Amanda Baker, currently Jolene on GH: Night Shift, will take over the role in October.
As for Alexa Havins, who has played Babe since 2003, her final air date is set for October 10th.
Earlier this year, rumors began to float that she was ready to leave Pine Valley in favor of the greener pastures - and bigger roles - of Los Angeles. When real-life hubby Justin Bruening, ex-Jamie, AMC, left the show in August most fans were certain that Alexa would follow in his footsteps.
When she first joined the show, she was immediately given a high profile storyline - the Baby Switch story. Some fans immediately liked the newcomer but many did not. However, Alexa soon grew on fans and is considered one of the most loved of Pine Valley's ladies. In 2005, she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress.
Love them or hate them, recast roles are a staple in daytime television. We want to know what the fans have to say: do you like the idea of an immediate recast? Or should the writers have taken a little time before giving us a new Babe?
