According to an item this morning from Soap Opera Digest, their setside sources are reporting that Kristen Alderson (Kiki) will be wrapping up her story on ABC’s General Hospital and exiting the show.
Kristen’s real-life boyfriend, Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) of General Hospital clarified by tweeting that it, “was her (Alderson’s) decision btw”
The long time One Life to Live fan favorite where she played Starr Manning, joined General Hospital in the role of Starr back in 2012 when the character crossed-over to General Hospital after OLTL went off the air.
After a legal dispute over the use of the characters of Starr, Todd (Roger Howarth) and John McBain (Michael Easton) on General Hospital by Prospect Park, the writing team had to come up with a new character for the actress to play which would inevitably be Kiki Jerome, the daughter of Ava Jerome (Maura West) and Silas Clay (Michael Easton). Many have felt that Alderson’s Kiki just didn’t have the stories that Starr Manning had throughout her time on GH!
So, what do you think of the report that Kristen is leaving General Hospital? Comment below!
