New girl in town.
Updated on April 18:
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.”
