Soap News: GH casts new Kristina, Is Eric Brady headed back to DAYS? Plus Soap Memes and more


General Hospital has cast its new Kristina! Lindsey Morgan will play the role of Sonny and Alexis’ daughter beginning the week of May 21. Like other fans, I’m also wondering why Lexi Ainsworth, who exited the role in October, wasn’t invited back. Update: Looks like Lexi Ainsworth was invited back, but she didn’t want to sign on to commit to a long term contract.

As per TV Line, look for Kristina to have a new attitude based on how she was admitted into Yale.

Here’s the actress showing off her assets on Instagram:

Anthony Geary and Maurice Bernard spoke to TV Guide about GH’s reprieve and Geary had the following to say about the new Frank Valentini/Ron Carlivati regime, “I has made me and most of us want to work harder. Some people don’t like it because they got complacent, and I’m not just talking about actors but people throughout the production. Those who don’t want to work harder will not stay.”

— After firing four popular stars Days of our Lives is looking to cast a new role. Soap Opera Digest reports that the soap is looking to cast a “30-to-35-year-old well-built, Caucasian male,” named Drew. Hmm could they finally be bringing Sami’s twin Eric Brady back to town (last played by Jensen Ackles)? Soap vet Greg Vaughan (ex-Lucky, GH; ex-Diego, Y&R) fits the mold for this character. Vaughan was asked to screen-test a couple of years ago, hopefully they’ll call him again.

— Look for Summer and Fen to be aged to teenagers on The Young and the Restless. The soap is reportedly looking for 18-year-olds to play the 15/16 year-olds.

— Meanwhile, Eric Braden (Victor, Y&R) has spoken out on the soap replacements, “They’re replacing the soaps with crap.”

— Soap vet Crystal Chappell (ex-Carly, DAYS; ex-Olivia, Guiding Light) is joining The Bold and the Beautiful next month as Caroline Spencer’s (Lindsey Godfrey)’s other mother, Danielle. The first-ever B&B lesbian storyline sees Chappell’s character paired with Joanna Johnson‘s Karen.

— And now on to the spoilers/teasers:
