Plenty of GENERAL HOSPITAL fans are missing seeing Vinessa Antoine as Jordan (the role has been recast with Briana Nicole Henry) on the soap, but the actress has already reported to work on her new role starring in the upcoming CBC primetime series DIGGSTOWN. “I have to pinch myself every day!” she exclaimed on Instagram of her amazing new gig.
Because this is a Canadian TV series, Antoine's GH fans from America are eager to know if they’ll be able to see it, but she admitted there’s no details available yet. “For those of you outside of Canada who have been asking how you can watch the show, I’ll keep you updated as we go,” she declared. “For now it will be airing in 2019 here in Canada. Please contact CBC to inquire when it will air in the USA and beyond.”
The Canadian native has been filming up in Nova Scotia starting in late August, and has been sharing a bunch of behind the scenes peeks at her new job, including a fun water bottle chugging contest with a couple of crew members! (See how well she does in the video below!)

Set shenanigans and water bottle chug challenges. My girls Lindsay and Sarah (Key make up and costume) have a “fake YouTube channel” and I decided to join in on the fun. At least I’m drinking more water? @diggstowncbc 💧 #diggstowncbc #setlife #waterchugchallenge #fail #kindredspirits #halifax #crew #behindthescenes🎬 @natashahenstridge I see you and you’re next! 👀
Hopefully Antoine’s American fans will be able to watch her career continue as she stars in this exciting new TV series. She’s definitely been feeling the love on social media from her avid supporters. “Love you and appreciate all of your well-wishes and love!” she expressed. “Thank you.”
DIGGSTOWN's premiere may be a ways off, but you can get a sneak peek via Antoine’s personal behind the scenes pics in the special gallery below!
