GH Recasts Jordan

Recommended Posts

I liked Briana Henry in the tv movie It Had To Be You however she is not right for the role of Jordan. She was also on Y&R though I really don't remember her performance on there.

Briana Nicole Henry has landed the role of Jordan Ashford on GH, taking over for Vinessa Antoine, who joined the show in 2014 and is exiting to star in a new Canadian drama, DIGGSTOWN. Henry will start shooting this month.

December 12, 2013–May 29, 2014 Esmeralda Briana Nicole Henry[57] Esmeralda, a longtime model, interacts with Summer Newman (Hunter King) at a Jabot Cosmetics photo shoot, and afterward offers her the phone number of her drug dealer for energy pills. Esmeralda quickly comes forward when Summer ends up in the hospital from the pills and admits that she gave the energy pills to Summer. In 2014, Esmeralda hooks up with billionaire, Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) at the Valentine's Day gala. They later embark on a relationship, evidently for Devon to suppress his feelings for Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan). Devon keeps Esmeralda interested by buying her expensive things with his fortune. After being convinced that the relationship was going nowhere, Devon breaks up with her over the phone and she is not seen again afterward.

My immediate first thought? Wow, they went several shades lighter.

She's too young for the role. She had to be like mid 20s on Y&R

 

I mean Vinessa was too young too but I can't imagine Briana playing the mother of a 20 something and a police commissioner.

Vanessa is 35/36 correct

 

Y&R was looking to cast 19-21 when they cast Esmerelda on YR in 2013 but Briana could be older

Look at YR.  How many non mixed black people are on that show?

And she can pass for the mother of the man playing her son!

Not to me.  Jordan could easily pass for early 40s.

Not one. All of them are biracial. It's one of the saddest things I've ever seen. At least the 90s had Olivia. And a decade ago we had Davetta for a short while. Sigh.

 

I did some insta-stalking and I'm gathering this actress is not yet 30. She was a toddler in the 90s.

Way too young for Jordan. I can't see her playing the role. I remember her well on Y&R. Her character coined the term "gazillionaire" for Devon. I don't want to judge prematurely but I just don't see it. The lighter complexion was expected. I'm not surprised. They went from a back woman to an obvious biracial one. Daytime's MO.

Well, you know TPTB think we all look alike, so it doesn't surprise me that Jordan has suddenly received some skin bleaching treatments.

Shouldn't have recast. She seems more suited for a Valerie recast.

 

And watch, she'll suddenly have plenty of story and be on a lot.
