ABC Confirms GH's Kirsten Storms Temporarily Recast With DAYS Alum Molly Burnett!

Another General Hospital cast member has been confirmed by an show rep to On-Air On-Soaps as being temporarily recast.  It happens to be none other than fan favorite Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones).  This is on the heels of the news that Tyler Christopher is also taking a leave from the show as Nikolas Cassadine.

As daytime fans know, Storms left the show once before for medical reasons back in the fall of 2011 and was off the series for almost a year.

At that time, Storms was replaced by now DAYS star, Jen Lilley (Theresa).  No reason has been given as to why Storms is off the series as of now.  Daytime Confidential first brought to light the switch.

This time Storms has been recast with another member of the Salem family, Molly Burnett! The young actress who has played Melanie Jonas on and off for several years starting from 2008-2012, and reprising the role in 2014-2015, and once again in 2016.

Look for Burnett to first appear on-screen in episodes of GH in July.

That means with the casting news of Bree Williamson as Claudette, Burnett will be involved in front-burner story as Maxie when her romance with Nathan (Ryan Paevey) is headed for more stormy waters.

I was waiting for Maxie and Claudette to go at it. I am just sorry it won’t be Ms Storms in the role. I hope her health is okay. Every now and again, you should mentally and physically “recharge your batteries” so to speak and just take break. Ms Storms is a beautiful and talented young woman, and I hope her health is up to par. Although I never watched either Days or One Life, I have seen clips of the talented actors GH has found for the roles, and I think some excellent choices were made. Good luck to… Read more »

Hi, soapqueenforever, Sometimes we forget that those who give their all to entertain us are peopke, too. As yourself, I hope she is well, also. She has just gone through a divorce( or in the midst of it), therefore, problems/issues may have arisen….child custody, financial support etc. Or, on the other hand, perhaps she and Johnny are working things out and need precious time to do that. Whatever it is, we pray, this little family rides the storm (no pun intended), and all come through it with a healthy heart and mind. ….which begs the question; why do these women/characters… Read more »

Yes, thats what they should had done…i do not like the idea of a fill-in getting the front and center story-it was bad enough Nate suddenly has an ex but since they are going to introduce her i would have liked Maxie leave like you said and if KS returns then have her deal with Claudette!!!-ruins the whole story for me and i wasnt much interested in it to begin with!!!

Harry
Guest

No Celia, Joan Crawford filled in for her daughter when she fell ill for a soap called “Secret Storm.” (I had mistakingly called it “The Doctors.) The role young Christina Crawford was playing was for a character who was supposed to be about 26. At the time Crawford was in her 70’s. In the cult classic film “Mommie Dearest” there is a scene in which Christina is in the hospital bed watching her mother play her role. To say the scene was awkward is an understatement. This was near the tail end of Joan Crawford’s career and life as she… Read more »

Sadly, Ms. Storms is going thru a divorce with a young child involved. Her health has also been an issue in the past. Considering how long she’s been acting (since a child) and how stressful her personal situation might be, it’s completely understandable she’d need time off. Also, I don’t think a longtime professional like her would do this, when her storyline is coming to the fore, unless she felt it was absolutely necessary. Hope she takes care of herself so she can be there for her child. That little girl only has one mother. OTOH, we GH viewers have… Read more »

I just hope Kirsten is ok and this will be a very short temporary recast. Kirsten Storms is the only Maxie Jones. I also hope Claudette is only on for this storyline and when it’s over Claudette will leave town. The GH cast is too big as it is. The show needs to stop adding new characters and show the characters that they already have. I hope Nathan and Maxie are the couple that will be together in the end and that Naxie stays in love with each other through this whole mess.

Molly is intense, mark, but so was Lon Chaney JR as “The Wolfman.”

They are interchangeable: Molly knows how to scrunch up her nose and show all her teeth just like Lon did. Molly is a star, considering the star is a sign of a werewolf.

Please, everyone, don’t misunderstand me…I loved Lon Chaney JR in “The Wolfman.”

Hi, Moviegal,
Right? But, I must say, Lilley is killing it as Theresa on DAYS. Loooove her….always have!!

Celia

I love Molly, as well, Vicki. So, I hope she can pull ‘Maxie’ off.
Kirsten’s Maxie was the whole package…including her minute size. I didn’t watch when Jen Lilley held the role ( I wish I had because I absolutely looove Jen just as much as Kirsten); so, I have become accustomed seeing Kirsten’s personality shine and dance before me.
One little person who will be sooo disappointed is my six-year old son….he is completely fascinated by Kirsten.

Why not just send her to spend some time with Georgie in Portland instead of temp recast. Im already not looking forward to not having kirsten as maxie for whats hopefully a short time – i hope we dont not have her for a year like last time. Hope she returns very very soon. We need to see lots of naxie Kirsten&Ryan during June to make up for what we’re not going to be getting in the coming months with them.

What the hell is going on with GH? If they are not injecting too many new characters/actors to an already bloated cast, they are casting temporary actors to replace veteran actors.
Why not write Maxie and Nikolas out of the story line for a spell which affording more attention to core characters whom have been sadly neglected.
So I ask again: WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH GH?
Ahem, I apologize for screaming.

Tristan
Guest
Tristan

Harry, do not apologize for screaming. We should start sending telegrams to ABC, all worded: “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH GH?”

I am beyond frustrated and disgusted. For example, while Tyler is fighting for a contract, the former OLTL actress hired to play the TOTALLY UNNECESSARY character of Claudette, when asked what lured her to GH, was quoted as saying “an offer I couldn’t refuse.”

I am about done with this show on entertainment grounds, and on moral principles. If TPTB does not care what WE want to see, let us oblige them and top watching.

Celia

Yeah, I know, Tristan. But, just as I was finally getting into Alexis’s disturbing storyline….starting to appreciate who this character truly is…..starting to really get into her head; the story is put on ice. I guess THE NURSEs’ BALL took precedence. Some of these stories should take place on another planet. A Roman Catholic priest doing the can-can? Don’t get me wrong…I liked looking at all that prime-male flesh (lol)…..but the idea of a priest doing it? Well, I can’t stop placing Father Griffin at the altar saying Mass or administering Communion to the publicae. LOL. I soooo want to… Read more »

Hey Rodd, I was referring to the frequent “dust ups” between the actors and TPTB or ABC suits or whomever is in charge. There was Tony Geary’s beef with “THE WRITER,” Rebecca Herbst almost being fired and being absent from the screen for a while. Then these recent problems with Tyler, Kirsten, etc.Appears to be a colossal “lack of communication” here re contractual negotiations, don’t you think?

I wasn’t hot on Molly over on DOOL as I felt that her character was rather annoying. I’ll give her a chance on GH but if she continues with those weird facial expressions while acting, I’m out. I mean recast temporarily if you must but get someone who’s a bit more like the person already playing the part.

What a total miscast. I couldn’t stand Molly Burnett on DAYS; Melanie always felt like a goofy, pointless character. All of her mumbling and nose crinkling got old, fast. Now she’ll be playing such a feisty character like Maxie, and I can’t see it going well. GH is a mess right now.

Hi Jimmy,

Everything you say about Molly ex-Melanie on Days!!!….is exactly how I feel, too. I couldn’t stand Melanie either. And, as Patrick mentioned (above), too, those obnoxious “shoulder flashdance wear”.
I might be able to take a month of Molly filling in for Kristen, but no more, unless she shapes up…or ship out!

Celia

Yeah, that’s another thing, Jeremy/Patrick……I do like Molly, but her sense of style, or lack-thereof, is a wash compared to Kirsten’s. No flair, no oomph!! So, I hope Wardrobe will remedy that.
I may sound trivial, but these details….fashion, speech, behavior are all part of what made the character Maxie.

@Celia, and others. I wonder what the original Maxie is up to. I don’t recall her name, but she was on GH for several years as I recall, then, they aged Maxie, and wha-la, enter Kristen Storms.

Stop recasting people, we get used to one person plating the part and the next thing, things change. Just pay them what they’re worth and stop. Unless it’s for a different reason, but if it has to happen find someone with same color hair. Please stop already.

Maybe it’s a personal thing with a Kristen, but when you hear things like this it can make you wonder what’s up with ABC…there was Rebecca, Finn/Silas before, now Tyler, recently Castle. Popular characters are killed off…Duke, Carlos…and new ones brought in like revolving doors with little or no story line that have any traction. Others are underused. This may seem out of context, but it reminds me of how some retailers are scheduling staff for “efficiencies,” fewer full-time/more part-time, and to find a way to cut expenses like health benefits.

Wow. Tough double loss for GH. I wish both actors well and hope things in their personal lives work out soon. It would be nice to kow exactly why they are both stepping big down but I recognize and respect that they have private lives. It’s a real shame, though, since both stories are totally heating up. Must be a hard transition for their scene partners too. Best wishes to everyone.

I had read about a month ago that Kirsten was having allergic problems effecting her face and the makeup department couldn’t do anymore to cover up the rash.

I watch both “Days” and GH so I am very familiar with both Molly and Kirsten. When someone has played a part for so long like Kirsten it is so hard for another actress to come in and take their place. I remember when Jen Lilly replaced Kirsten for a time and people were so mean in their comments. She spoke about how hard that was because she wasn’t trying to be Kirsten but play the part to the best of her ability. It can’t be easy people. Let’s give Molly a chance. She has only been there for two… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
