General Hospital News: Vinessa Antoine Speaks Out On Her Sudden Exit

General Hospital‘s ex-Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) left the show just as a major story line was brewing for her character. Jordan Ashford was about to marry Curtis Ashford, her ex-husband’s brother, when Antoine left GH.

General Hospital spoilers reveal comments from Vinessa Antoine regarding her sudden and shocking exit from General Hospital. According to TV Water Cooler, Antoine divulged that she did not want to leave her role as Jordan Ashford at all. It turns out, Antoine took on another role in Canada, on a show called, Diggstown. She would have been gone for the Summer and hoped that the Executives over at General Hospital would have been able to accommodate her hiatus with a story line revamp. The writers had already had a story in motion, and declined Antoine’s request to have her character go off on some undercover mission or possible be in a coma.

Vinessa told Canadian soap spoilers page, TV Water Cooler, “I thought that I would get to stay. It was quite a shocker for me. I never planned to leave the show. I was hoping to get to do what the other actors get to do…go on a little sabbatical.”

Antoine was quickly replaced with Briana Nicole Henry who currently plays the role of Jordan Ashford. Were the Execs right to have replace Vinessa while she wanted time away?
