General Hospital star Kirsten Storms is celebrating a new milestone on the hit ABC show. As a matter of fact, the blonde beauty has just revealed that she has been playing her character Maxie for 13 years now!
While a lot of her fans might know her best from her role as Maxie, Kirsten actually didn’t start her daytime television career in Port Charles. Instead, she was on Days of Our Lives for about five years before making the jump over to General Hospital back in 2005. Kirsten played the role of Belle Black in Salem City.
Kirsten made her big debut on General Hospital in the role of Maximilliana Jones. She’s actually the third actress to play the role. She also earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2009 in the category for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
One of the reasons why fans love Kirsten so much is because she’s managed to play the role with ease, despite all of the drama and heartache that her character has had to endure. Just this year Maxie had to deal with her husband Nathan’s [Ryan Paevey] death while pregnant with his first child, too. It’s been an emotional year, nonetheless. And we have a feeling that there is so much more in store for Maxie and her newborn baby.
Happy 13th anniversary Kirsten Storms. It’s without a doubt that your fans can’t wait to see more of you in Port Charles! General Hospital airs every weekday on the ABC network.
