In a post on her Instagram account on Friday night, General Hospital fan favorite Kirsten Storms (Maxies Jones) posted a photo of herself about to get her cut-off.  But what is even more important is that Storms confirmed she is already back taping brand new episodes for the summer on the set of the ABC daytime drama series.

Storms post stated: “Maxie’s short hair returns to #GH … and so do I.”

The return of Kirsten is very key to the summer storyline involving; Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Claudette (Bree Williamson), and Griffin (Matt Cohen).  In Storms absense former Days of our Lives cast member, Molly Burnett (Ex-Melanie Jonas) had temporarily replaced her.

Look for Burnett to debut next week on GH, with Storms returning to her role on-air in August.

So, excited to hear from Kirsten and that she is back taping at GH?  What do you think about Kirsten going back to Maxie with shorter-do? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    Maxie is my favorite character on GH, and a big part of the reason is the layers Storms brings to her. I’ll miss her during her absence, but I am very happy she is feeling better and taping again.

    Ditto, Lucky. I love her bubbly-self. She is the type of character whose personality charms and engages the viewer. I would think this is how Kirstin is in reality.

    Hope Burnett’s stay is a short one! There is only one Maxie Jones and it’s Kirsten!! Hope she’s feeling better

    What about Robin Richards? I heard fans say she the one and only Maxie Jones.

    Never heard from those fans. Not that memorable to me.

    I loved Robin Richards but Kirsten has done an amazing job filling her shoes

    Celia replied

    Hey, Ces.
    I like Molly, but yes, I do want Kirsten back.
    I think Molly slid into the Maxie role somewhat awkwardly. Too bad Molly won’t be here long enough to make the role her own.
    I must admit, it felt kind of weird seeing Molly as Kirsten. I was one of “Melanie’s” avid fans. But, the facial expressions, the gesture, the dress even, just were not Kirsten. Two completely different personalities, and it showed.
    I liked her purse, though. LOL. I have the same RLL bag ( larger version), with the cork motif at the top.

    The less of Molly Burnett the better. I can’t wait til Kirsten fills my screen again. I love her so much. The other one? I pass. (See I can be kind when prompted. LoL)

    How do we know that Molly will do a crappy job as Maxie. Tuesday’s show is Molly’s first day as Maxie right.

    Ces replied

    Well, she was crappy on Days and likes to chew scenery so probably will be an annoyance on GH too.

    Molly Burnett is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    I like the shorter hair on her and it is probably easier to do with her busy schedule.

    I’m very interested in seeing Molly Burnette take on the role. While I’m not a fan of her character on days she doesn’t seem I’ll fit for the part. I loved Jen Liley as Maxie. I almost wanted her to stay. Glad Kristen is doing better and back at home in her role.

    Always thought Jen got a bum rap in the role. But I’m glad this absence will be brief

    I know, right? I do like the actress (despite her annoying habit of utilizing vocal fry when she speaks) but I am puzzled by the constant assurance that she will be back when she has yet to leave the screen. We get it, we get it. KS will be back even though she has not quite left yet.
    I am not sure why her extremely short absence has to be covered so much or even why they are bothering with a recast during this short period of time. Maxie easily could have gone off to Seattle to be with baby Georgie for some kind of medical emergency.

    Benefit of doubt — maybe they didn’t know how long she would need to be gone? But overall agree, much ado about nothing.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Agree with you, Harry! Lazy planning by TPTB–ditto for Nikolas “story line” which is so very dull–and nonsensical.

    Celia replied

    Confucius say: she who cuts hair shows signs of rebellion. LOL.

    I am hoping with KS taping again already with no sighting of Molly Burnett yet means Molly will only be on for two weeks at the most. A month will be too long. I look forward to seeing KS new shorter do. I liked her hair long, but short and sassy works so well for her.

    Maxie is always cute … even when she’s frustrating.

    It’s really sad that people are putting down Molly &she didn’t evergreen have her first airdate. She’s only on for the month of July & filing in for Kirsten who needed the medical leave.
    It just shows how petty those who insult her really are.

    Harry replied

    It’s mean, Tammy. I agree. Folks act like these temporary actors are strike breakers or something.

    Reply

    Tammy replied

    Exactly.
    We’re just lucky to have an established actress play Maxie for what was only a month since she’ll be back soon.
    Someone on FB wanted Burnett to dye her hair or wear a wig.
    Why can’t people stop being so nitpicking.
    We can get over reanimation but not a temp actor change.
    Yikes!

    nancy dillingham replied

    I agree, again, Harry!

    Celia replied

    I loved Molly on Days. But, she is so different from Kirsten….I think this is why fans are somewhat taken aback. Will she live up to the task?
    I believe that as an actress, Molly should be able to prove her mettle regardless of the role.

    Wasn’t too impressed with Molly today, but it’s hard to replace another actor. I just hope all this drama with Claudette does not happen till Kirsten is back on! She is the only one that can play this part that will be coming up! Drag this out a little bit, all of us won’t mind

    Hi, Ces.
    Thanks for replying. I don’t see your comment on this board, but I did get it in my inbox.
    Lol. Glad you liked my bag comment.
    You mention Nick Stabile….oh, yeah, Ces!! My very first comment regarding him was that I had hoped he would take over the role of Nik Cassadine permanently. I was never under the influence of Tyler’s ‘charms’. Never took seed with me.
    I say this at the risk of getting backlash, as Tyler is a fan fave. It’s a matter of taste. In his case, not palatable for me.
    So, it’s nice to hear you feel the same way about Stabile. The more, the merrier. LOL.
