Port Charles has found its new police commissioner! Briana Nicole Henry will be the new Jordan Ashford on GENERAL HOSPITAL. “Thanks, GH! So excited to join your family!” she shared on Instagram. With Vinessa Antoine having filmed her final scenes with the soap so that she can star in a new primetime series, GH has recast the role with Henry as there is still so much more storyline to tell with this character!
This is actually not Henry’s first foray into daytime. Back in December of 2013, she was hired for one episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS that turned into a short-term recurring role that lasted until May of 2014. She played Esmerelda, a model who offered Summer drugs and then hooked up with Devon on Valentine’s Day. (It didn’t work out, obviously!) Henry can also be seen in the film Bright as well as primetime series like UNDATEABLE, JANE THE VIRGIN, SHAMELESS, and INSECURE.
If Antoine filmed her last episode in mid August and Henry took over immediately, you can expect to see her taking over the role of Jordan somewhere in September. And with Jordan and Curtis’ wedding being planned — and Stella’s continuing meddling to split them up — there will be plenty of drama for the GH newcomer to sink her teeth into. (Not to mention trying to keep the rampant crime in Port Charles under control at the same time!)
