“Oh, Earth, you’re too wonderful for anybody to realize you. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? – every, every minute?” _________ I’m working on a new project, and the writer was inspired by Thornton Wilders “Our Town”. This one quote has been keeping me grateful this whole week. What would happen if we actually felt every moment of our day? Our relationships? Our lives? Man, I think we’d explode. Either from all the love, sadness, or both. _________ Happy Thursday you beautiful humans. I hope you can find something or someone to feel grateful for today.
She signed on for one episode on the Y&R, but after that episode, they signed her on for more. Briana ended up on 16 episodes of that soap. This opened the door for other TV parts, which were usually one episode gigs.

Vinessa Antoine Moves to Primetime
Now taking over the role of Jordan Ashford is a big break for the Miami Florida native. Last month Vinessa Antoine announced she was moving up to a primetime gig and leaving her GH role behind. She will join a new show slated to start shooting this month in Nova Scotia called Diggstown.
Vinessa will play a high-powered attorney jumping ship to help the little guy. She leaves the corporate lawyer life behind and becomes a legal aid lawyer for those less fortunate. It looks like Vinessa is about to make TV history as well as moving up north.
General Hospital Alum To Make TV History
Reports indicate Vinessa will be the “first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.” With that said, Briana Nicole Henry is going to have some big shoes to fill as this General Hospital character gets a new face.
