General Hospital is getting ready to celebrate with its fans next week when the show turns an astounding 50 years old! Access Hollywood caught up with one of the fan favorites in Port Charles, Kirsten Storms to talk all things Maxie in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
One things that is certainly difficult for Kirsten, is the departure of her GH closest pal Julie Marie Berman (Ex-Lulu), who filmed her final scenes with Storms. Kirsten told ‘Access’ on Julie’s exit: “I actually got to have Julie’s last scene with her, which was so emotional. We could barely look at each other. It was great. She started a few months after I started. So I really do feel like my entire General Hospital experience has been with her. I feel lost without her now, but I know we have a great actress coming in (Emme Rylan) to pick up for Lulu and we’re just going to keep going with the story lines.”
Kirsten also has gotten the opportunity to work with her on-screen bio-dad during GH 50, soap icon, Jack Wagner as Frisco Jones. Fans have loved Kirsten and Jack’s scenes together since his return to GH. Kirsten related, “I love working with Jack. I was definitely nervous when I first worked him! My mom watched him on Melrose Place when I was growing up. But he’s amazing. Talking to him, he has had a lot of crazy life experiences, and we have been able to put some of that stuff in to our scenes with each other. And, I love the dynamic between Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and Jack. It’s been really cool to see them together.”
As far as keeping the secrets to the upcoming Nurses’ Ball, Storms revealed, “Our boss Frank Valentini (GH EP) strikes the fear of God in all of us! (Laughs) They have been going to a lot of lengths to change the cast names on the scripts, so it doesn’t get out with who is coming back, but we all respect the show. So we are all doing our best to keep our lips shut about things!”
The big question though remained! Will Maxie tell Spinelli she is pregnant with his baby? Or, still give it to Dante and Lulu and pretend it’s their child she has been carrying? Kirsten expressed, “I don’t know if we are going to get the resolution that everybody is hoping for. I think maybe some fans may be satisfied, and I know some people are going to be disappointed, because there are people on both sides of this situation that want Maxie to tell the truth, or don’t want her to. I have no idea what is going on, and they have not told me. I hope I get to keep it.”
Now below, watch Kirsten’s video interview with Access Hollywood, then let us know, if you hope Maxie tells Spinelli that the she is baby is his, and she gets to keep it? Or, do you want Dante and Lulu to raise the little bundle of joy? And, have you enjoyed the emotional scenes between Frisco and Maxie? Weigh-in!
