The returns keep on coming! Fan favorite Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) has joined the roster of actors who are headed back to GENERAL HOSPITAL in the upcoming weeks! The actress, who made her debut as the daughter of Sonny and Alexis in 2009, recently announced the good news herself in an Instagram Story!
Dressed in a bodycon black dress with her hair in big, loose, waves, the actress posted a selfie from her dressing room that showed a snippet of a GH script. Ainsworth tagged the soap’s official Instagram handle in her Story and pinned her location as The Prospect Studios, where GH tapes. “She’s back,” Ainsworth announced in the text written on her picture.
Ainsworth’s last appearance was in September when Sonny returned home — very much alive — the day of Carly and Jason’s wedding. Kristina’s emotional reaction to her father’s homecoming left the actress’ fans remembering just how much of a soft spot the character has for her father and wondering why Ainsworth wasn’t used more frequently.
After making her Port Charles debut in 2009, Lexi played Kristina on and off until 2011, when the soap recast the part with Lindsey Morgan. Ainsworth reclaimed her role in 2015 and went on to play her two biggest GH storylines: Kristina’s affair with her married college professor and her involvement in the Dawn of Day cult.
While there was no indication from Ainsworth if her return to work was just for another handful of scenes or something lengthier, the character certainly has lots of family drama to weigh in on. Is she working for Phyllis at Charlie’s Pub? What will Kristina think of Alexis and Sam’s potential partnership as private investigators? And what will she have to say about Nina’s part in keeping Sonny away from his family for all those months? Stay tuned to find out!
