Luke Kerr January 9, 2012 Comings & Goings, General Hospital 23 Comments It appears the prayers of General Hospital fans have been answered. After much speculation, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Kirsten Storms is returning to Port Charles as Maxie. Reportedly, she will begin taping at the end of January and will appear onscreen in late February. Photo by PR Photos 23 Responses NAN January 9, 2012 This makes me very happy! Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 January 9, 2012 Welcome back KS! As much as I’ve appreciated JL covering for you and (I admit it, I did enjoy some of her work), I am ready for you to assume your place as the Maxie I love… 0:) Log in to Reply goyankees January 9, 2012 ….But she will leave once more when ABC Daytime kills GH by years end.

Log in to Reply The_Moustache January 9, 2012 i was hoping she would have gone back to DAYS, now that Jason Cook is getting fired from GH. Log in to Reply JasamForever January 9, 2012 So glad to have Kirsten back. She has been missed. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 January 9, 2012 Unlike most of you, I actually liked Maxie’s replacement! She’s a good actress! However, of course, Kirsten IS Maxie, so I am thrilled that she’s coming back to where she belongs! Now if only we could get Megan Ward back where SHE belongs so that I will no longer have to deal with NuKate!!!!! :p :p Log in to Reply The_Moustache January 9, 2012 Robyn Richards needs to come back to the show too. Log in to Reply LizzieVee January 9, 2012 Was hoping she would go back to Days as Belle and Jason Cook going with her. Pesonally,I liked her best as Belle. As Maxie she got on my nerves. Spinelli would have been better off with Georgie. Oh, well. Log in to Reply giogio January 9, 2012 I really enjoyed Maxie’s replacement. She fit right in. I love Kirsten and very happy she is well and coming back. But the girl who filled in for her should get a role in GH as someone else cause she shines. Log in to Reply soapbaby January 9, 2012 ^^ I agree with alstonboy and giogio – The actress who has subbed for Kirsten Storms is a good actress and did a fine job. I was surprised GH frontburnered Maxie while KS was on leave, but the replacement did very well. I was hoping KS would return when the show’s writing improved (hopefully, when RC and FV take over.)

Log in to Reply jphelps January 10, 2012 I havent missed KS one bit which is either a testament to Jen Lilley or that Kirsten Storms is not that indellible an actress. I think both. I am glad KS is on the mend regardless. Log in to Reply GHFan777 January 10, 2012 I thought Jen L did a good job filling in for Kirsten. Jen IS a very good actress….but Kirsten IS Maxie for me. So I am happy to welcome her back…I DO wish Jen all the best…not only is she a good actress…she also appears to be a really nice person. She was very gracious and friendly to the fans during her stint on GH. Soap fans are loyal, and I am sure she picked some up the past four months…she will be supported where ever she goes in the future. …In the meantime I am very happy that Kirsten is finally better… and coming back to her role.

Log in to Reply keanna January 10, 2012 Though I thought JL held down the fort pretty well, I am glad Kirsten’s back!!! Log in to Reply soapfan616 January 10, 2012 Maxie is a much needed character on the canvas as she is one that ties so many people together from the show’s history. However, Maxie has been used as a whining and complaining airhead nag for so long that I hardly enjoy her on screen. How many times is she going to call Liz a slut before the writer’s realize the viewer is numb to her critique? When will Maxie be something other than an insecure girl trying to hold onto her man? LIke so many female characters on GH, Maxie has suffered from the sexist pen of inept writers and the “leadership” of a soap killer. Here’s hoping Maxie comes back with a change for the better. She could really be a zany and funny and multi-facteded Lucy Coe for a new generation of GH fans. Well, if GH makes it past this year… Log in to Reply Dariclone January 10, 2012 I love that she’s back! Log in to Reply Jon January 10, 2012 I think I actually prefer Jen Lilley as Maxie Jones now, but welcome back to the sinking ship, Kirsten! Log in to Reply giogio January 10, 2012 Come on Jon – Lets rally for GH – I think it will make it. Dont be sad. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan January 12, 2012 Jen Lilley was very good, i will miss her.
