Fans are still reacting to the news that Lexi Ainsworth is out as General Hospital's Kristina. Now, Ainsworth's on-screen mom is also opening up about the actress' exit.

Emmy winner Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) has broken her silence about the unexpected firing of her on-screen daughter, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina Davis).

"It is no secret how much I love Lexi, and how talented I think she is," Grahn shared on her Twitter page. "It will also come as no surprise that I am sad about her leaving... and yes, tears were shed. Very often things out of our control turn out to be the most perfect orchestration of circumstances that lead to even better experiences, that shape our lives in profound ways."

"At 19, there are endless acting opportunities, and now she is free to pursue them," Grahn added. "My TV baby is a beautiful, classy young woman with a fantastically, supportive family, and a bright, bright future. I'm so excited for her."

Last week, Ainsworth informed her followers on Twitter that the rumor that had been circulating was true: she had been let go from GH.

"[S]ince it appears to be officially out there I will confirm I shot my last episode at GH yesterday," Ainsworth posted to her Twitter page.

The "perfect orchestration" that Grahn spoke of may have something to do with the news that Ainsworth has already landed a post-General Hospital gig.

A General Hospital spokesperson was not available for comment. A final airdate for Ainsworth was not immediately available, though it is expected near the middle of November.
