First Impressions: Kristen Alderson as General Hospital’s “KiKi” (PHOTOS)



One Life to Live star-turned-General Hospital transplant Kristen Alderson made her debut on GH as a new character this week. Her friends call her "Kiki", but we suspect [SPOILER ALERT] she's the much sought after Lauren Frank. What were your First Impressions of Alderson's new character?

Surprised no one has mentioned trying to integrate THREE TOTALLY NEW CHARACTERS to the canvas EVEN IF they are established actors!

Not only do we have to watch the create dynamic energy for them with the likes of Carly, michael, and Sam, we gave to watch as we learn abt who there are! All the while other actor/characters linger in the background.

For this JOHNNY was let go?

Silas (a named ripped from THE VAMPIRE DIARIES from a vampire) hasn't spoken to his brother in 10 yrs? Sure, we'll buy that but the fact that PCPD caught a serial killer and a slew of cold cases should have been solved should have been national media attention ESPECIALLY since 2 jars of competing relish made it onto THE VIEW! Even if not national, Silas should have read abt his brother on the front page of the NY POST!! They live for that type if story. Lame reason not to know abt brother. (It's him, the vampire).

DIFFERENT Todd came to town. Tainted some relish. People throw up for an hour. His tie in to the Q's better be good for seeing Mario batalil scream into camera with puck on his face!

Starr is a STRIPPER name, as well, all! Just think how Starr would have answered the door if the character was named that: IT'S STARR WITH TWO "are"'s! Get it right, ok"

Kiki is just as bad especially since she added "my fiends call me".

And I agree, Kristin alderson is not a great/good actress. She's middle of the road ok. I just lose interest with her. CARTOONY, should have just cut her lose from her contract.

pjc, Johnny (Brandon Barash) left on his own.

However, I totally agree with everything you are saying. These characters are three new characters. And the amount of investment the TPTB expects from the audience is lunacy. Especially considering all the other new characters that are possibly on their way to PC.

She looks like Natilie on OLTL now.

I have always liked Roger H and Micheal E. so I am just happy to have them back on GH. I think both actors will pull off their new characters. I am willing to give KA a chance. She seems more feisty and bratty in her new role, which she was always good at playing, more then a herione, which Starr became as she got older. All three of them are so lucky, that Frank V. has such faith in them that he did whatever he could to keep them on GH. You don't see a lot of that loyalty in the show business world!

I am at a loss to the need for the new John or the new Starr. These two characters are not at all interesting to me. Now Todd on the other hand is just perfect. No matter who he plays I will be following his character.

The older Morgan has had a personality change. His actions scream brat and punk. Poor Carly has got a real heart break coming with this new Morgan. Michael and Sonny will be kept busy just dealing with his new attitude and lack of concern for anyone except himself.

My GH friend made a great comment yesterday re: KA -- she's merely able to come across as a day player, one who helps to establish the vibe for a scene. THAT is how she comes across, as merely competent. Not someone who -- as stated here many times -- has the dramatic chops to be in a romantic triangle! I will say that the more Morgan Ford yammers on, the more he does sound Italian. Let's start a drinking game every time he mutters "bro" -- UGH!

I haven't finished yesterday's ep, more internet delays on commute last nite. I can't say i'm all that curious to even finish it!

@Appleridge ...I SOOO agree...lol...when Michael answered the door I reacted at seeing KiKi....was waiting for him to be surprised!!...to freak out...to do or say something in response to seeing who he should have thought was his (ex) Girlfriend!...and nothing. ..as you said, not even a sense of recognition and an explanation of some kind. I thought I'd missed something for a moment.

..then I became a bit insulted as a General Hospital fan that the director would do that to us.

I'm interested to see if the blondish guy who just paid LuLu for her boat is coming back as Todd Manning or someone totally new!....really, there are other very good actors out there if so!...the same with KiKi....what's up with that?

They CAN'T have a reaction to these characters, because that would be acknowledging the existence of the OLTL characters. And that is something GH is not allowed to do. It was NOT a director's choice, lol.
