For four seasons, “General Hospital” alum Vinessa Antoine starred as Marcie Diggs in the Canadian drama series “Diggstown,” and now the actress is following up that role by joining the cast of the Netflix original series “Ginny & Georgia.”
Appearing in episodes six, seven, eight and ten of the show’s current second season, Antoine portrays Simone, an attorney who is dating Ginny’s (Antonia Gentry) father, Zion (Nathan Mitchell). The complete opposite of Georgia (Brianne Howey), Simone’s time on the show has already led to her making a big impression on Zion’s loved ones, including sharing meals with Ginny and joining Zion as his date at Georgia’s wedding to Paul (Scott Porter).
“The wait is over!” stated Antoine earlier this month when all-new episodes of the series dropped on the streaming service. “Special thank you to our director @thesharonlewis for letting me also tag along to shadow her this season as a director. I’m forever grateful to you, @sllampy and @debrajfisher and our writer @angelanissel and the entire cast and crew for this opportunity!!”
Since premiering its second season on January 5, “Ginny & Georgia” has ranked number one on the Netflix Global Top 10 list (TV) every day, topping the charts in 84 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Switzerland, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Italy, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, among a multitude of other countries. With over 180 million hours watched thus far, the show’s second season is already on pace to outdo its first season on the Netflix charts.
Sharing in their excitement for their former castmate at “General Hospital,” Tamara Braun said, “Omg!!! Been waiting for the next season and am so excited to see you on it!! Woohoo!!” Meanwhile, Finola Hughes stated, “Doing IT!”
In celebration of the show’s continued success, Antoine shared several behind-the-scenes photos from the set, captioning the post by saying, “It was always a frame within a frame within a frame that got us here. Thank you.”
