General Hospital's Hayley Erin Talks On: A Betrayed Kiki, Saying Goodbye To Michael Easton, Her Co-Stars: Maura West & Bryan Craig!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

It’s not been a good several weeks, and that is putting it mildly, for the character of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) on General Hospital.  First, her father Silas (Michael Easton) is murdered.  Then it is revealed that her believe-to-be dead mother Ava (Maura West) is actually alive and well, and masquerading as her aunt Denise.  Then her mother is arrested for the murder of Connie Falconeri and sent to jail.  Meanwhile, she learns that her boyfriend Morgan (Bryan Craig) has been sleeping with her mother behind her back, and who does she learn this information from … Franco (Roger Howarth)!

With so much drama going down, On-Air On-Soaps had to catch up for a much-needed chitchat with actress Hayley Erin.  We had the opportunity do so while attending the Television Academy cocktail reception honoring the daytime community late last week. The actress came on to the ABC daytime drama series in not the most enviable position: taking over the role from Daytime Emmy-winner and long-time soap opera darling, Kristen Alderson.  She was next charged with then putting her own stamp on a character that has often proved problematic for the audience, at times, to invest in.

In a delightful and frank conversation, Hayley shared her thoughts on all things Kiki including: working with her co-stars; the incomparable Maura West, Bryan Craig, and having to say farewell to the beloved Michael Easton.  Plus, Erin weighs-in on the new writing regime and what it could mean for her character, and where does Kiki go from here, now that her boyfriend and her mother have deeply betrayed her.  Here’s what Hayley had to say about it all!

So, what was your reaction when you found out that your on-screen father, Michael Easton (Ex-Silas) was being killed off, and it would spur a murder mystery whodunit?

HAYLEY:  Ugh!  I was like “Ugh” literally that is what I said!  It was so emotional and I was upset.  I gave him a hard time for leaving me. (Laughs)  I took it personally.  He’s my on-screen dad!  But it made for a great storyline and there was a lot of great material for all of us.  So I guess, that is kind of the bright side … if there is one?  But Michael is dearly missed.  Michael is awesome!

Was it hard for you to play Kiki’s reaction to Denise being revealed to be her mother Ava Jerome (Maura West) alive and well in the courtroom scenes during the murder trial?

HAYLEY:  I was trying to think, “Did Kiki have any clue at all that this was Ava, or was it a complete shock?”  I just kind of went with, “It’s my mom. She’s alive.”  That was kind of all I had playing over and over in my head.  But then there is also the level of the absurdity of the situation, and so I tried to bring that into it too.  It was like “Denise? Ava?”  (Laughs)  Bless his heart, Bryan Craig’s character of Morgan is sleeping with this woman, and doesn’t apparently know who she truly is! (Laughs)

Your reaction as Kiki was emotional to the news that her mother is alive and deceived most people with her alter-ego, while Bryan Craig’s as Morgan was kind of a blank stare and very contained. 

Courtesy/ABC

HAYLEY:  I loved it!  I thought it was awesome … the two of us sitting next to each other playing the reactions to the situation totally the opposite of each other.  I thought it was perfect.  We were having a blast doing these scenes.  That was one of the most fun days on set I have had at GH.  We were all buddy-buddy in the courtroom.  Honestly, we were all joking around, because they brought up the character of Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).  I never noticed it before, but Roger Howarth (Franco) realized that’s the motion picture actor, Bradley Cooper’s name.  So we were goofing around with that before the cameras were rolling.  Then I had hard time when we were taping every time they said the name, “Brad Cooper” and trying so hard not to laugh.  It was hilarious.

Now Kiki has found out that Morgan has been sleeping with her mother.  His cover is blown!

Courtesy/ABC

HAYLEY:  It’s interesting, because Kiki does not know about Morgan being bipolar and that doesn’t come into play at all during the reveal on my end.  She just thinks he is cheating on her, and has no idea there is mental illness, or anything else going on.  There was an episode where Morgan gets all manic and is professing his love for her, and that he is going to get them a place, and they are going to live happily-ever-after.  But that scene started off with an argument and so throughout the argument she is very understanding.  Kiki was really trying to get through to him about Ava.  And then it’s like, “Where is this coming from?,” when Morgan switches into happy lovey-dovey mode.  There is a little bit of a clue there for her, but not enough for her to warrant her to stay with him.  It was horrible what he did to her, just awful!

Then, what does Kiki think of what Ava did to her by canoodling with her boyfriend behind her back?

Courtesy/ABC

HAYLEY:  What a horrible mother!  What is so funny, and I was having this thought today: having Ava as a mother is like the worst thing that could have happened to anyone, but having Maura West as your on-screen mother is the greatest thing that could ever happen to anyone.

Did you know Maura’s work before coming to General Hospital … from her days on As the World Turns up till know?

HAYLEY:  I actually didn’t, because I had gone from the The Young and the Restless where then I was 15 years old, and then I was out of the whole soap world, so I wasn’t familiar with it anymore.  But as it turned-out, I didn’t even realize Maura had been on Y&R.  It’s all so funny and karmic the way the universe throws us all into each others orbit.  I love it, though.  It’s like we are all one big family.  Maura is a phenomenal actress, and even if she is given material that might be so absurd, she is able to take it to the next level to where it becomes so real.  It then becomes the reality of the General Hospital universe, because you believe every word out of her mouth.  I love it, because she makes me step up my game.

Courtesy/ABC

Kiki has never really felt to the audience as the most fully-fleshed out character, and that is even from the time Kristen Alderson was playing the role and quickly had to shift from playing Starr Manning to the newly-created character of Kiki.  This was due to the lawsuit between ABC and Prospect Park over former OLTL characters.  Are you at all concerned where the show will take your character now?

HAYLEY:  It’s true … I can understand where it seems not fleshed-out.  I don’t know what the new writers are going to do with the character.  I just got my last couple of scripts from the previous regime and it looks like its going into a different direction.  It seems to be more about Kiki finding herself.  It’s hard sometimes to make your own character, when there is not that much to go on, and you can’t just completely fabricate a character, because you’re not the writer.

What are your thoughts then on head writer Ron Carlivati being let-go and the new head writers of Shelly Altman and Jean Passananate writing for the characters of Port Charles?

Courtesy/ABC

HAYLEY:  I’m fairly new to the show.  I had met Ron a couple of times and he was lovely, and he had done a lot of great work.  I’m looking forward to the future, and I think great things are going to come, and it will be a breath of fresh air.  I think the cast is all pretty excited to see what is going to happen.

So, what do you think Kiki should do now that the truth is out about Morgan and Ava’s affair?  Do you think she would even consider taking Morgan back, if she knew, and the diagnosis was confirmed, that he was suffering from Bipolar disorder?

What did you think about Hayley’s comments about her co-stars and Michael Easton’s departure?  Would you like to see the new writing regime infuse more definitive character traits into the character of Kiki Jerome? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I did not care for Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) at all. She was just there, nothing much. Lately she has come out of her cocoon and is so much better, time and this story has done wonders for the character. she did say; ” I just got my last couple of scripts from the previous regime and it looks like its going into a different direction. It seems to be more about Kiki finding herself. ” It is obvious from these past weeks after Lukes exit that Ron was turning more towards characters and family .. RC was fixing things.… Read more »

I agree. She just thrilled me with her forceful acting today. More power to her…she does have it in her to wow us.
I certainly hope, su, that by ‘finding herself’ means she will finally find her real mother, Nina…..nope, I haven’t given up on that notion. LOL.

I would like to say that I tuned into GH after weeks of sporadic viewing, and I was stunned!!! I was flabbergasted!!! I dont know for sure, but i’d say Altman and Passanante’s material has begun, and I am over the moon! People talked like actuaL people!!! Not like programmed robots or cartoons. The directing was relaxed ad nd elegant. There was minimal plot development, but the episode was about families! I dont even like any of the characters who were featured in the episode except Michael, but overnight, Morgans bipolar disorder made him human, relatable, and apologetic for all… Read more »

hi Dylan..
What you have seen since Luke’s exit has been RC..
He was in the process of writing more couples, and family etc.. Ron was doing his thing and changing it up.
Altman and Passanante’s material will air mid Oct.
It was Ron who ” stunned!!! I was flabbergasted;; you 🙂

Ron is a very good writer, he just need a break after the Luke exit stuff which not wholly by his hands.

Su, first of all, writing styles do not change that drastically overnight. Ron was let go well over a month ago. GH is not on an accelerated schedule like DAYS. So while Ron may have had long term story laid oit, the day to day writing of the show is firmly out of his hands. It is clear to ANY long term viewer familiar with his writing style. It was a paradigm shift!! He doesnt write character driven, emotionally based stories. You only seem to like murder and mayhem stories….so why are you now falsely praising him for suddenly writing… Read more »

I think they jumped the gun by firing Ron. He DID have his hands tied while writing Tony’s exit story…and for quite a while before that because of Tony’s illness and being off the show for so long.
Ron is a very capable writer and storyteller, but when you have all these constraints, it limits your abilities.
I was initially happy when Ron was let go, but now realize that this mess was not his fault.

No, Dylan is partially right. Jean’s writing started showing up beginning August 1. I think she is a breakdown writer but I am not sure about that.
Ron’s writing is still on screen and will be for another month or so?
I think what Dylan is noticing that perhaps Ron and Jean would have made a great writing team. Maybe her voice of temperate reality anchors his propensity to write disjointed, choppy, campy stories which are out there?
I dunno but glad to hear Dylan and others noticing some improvement.

No, GH is NOT on an accelerated schedule but it is more than 8 weeks’s out. Ron Carlivati was let go the end of July but the show was written through the end of September. Passanante/Altman will officially “take over” the show on the October 7th episode. This is all still Ron’s stuff. Passanante was added back as a breakdown writer the beginning of July. But this is still Ron’s story until next month. I think the Luke exit storyline was really what was holding things up and he was bringing it back to what it was before it got… Read more »

Count me as one person who is very leery about this change. Passanante/Altman do not have a great track record but people like them so they keep getting hired. Don’t assume fan favorites are going to return. A lot of those fan favorites liked Carlivati and saw that the show was being brought back to life under Carlivati and that’s why they came back. If people like Bobby and Scotty start disappearing, I’m going to be very sad. More power to P/A if they can turn it around but I just have seen them ruin too many soaps in the… Read more »

Ron changed direction after the Luke stuff that was not entirely in his hands.
He hear people and acted and wrote more true to his OLTL stories that were character driven, so no big deal Ron he is a very talented writer and since Tony left Ron has been turning GH on fire !!!..
Ron is the only one who can bring it back up. A mistake to let him go.
Past weeks has shown that..
Rons writing goes to mid October, so another month with Ron.

I really like him with Nina. Their jail scenes were great! He just has to be written less clownish because it’s hard to take the character seriously after everything he did to pretty much the entire cast. Nina brings out his human side, and I’m enjoying that.

I agree, Su. Franco has become so likeable. They’ve gotten rid of the infantile personality and he comes across as a man searching for love and willing to do anything for those he does love. He risked himself to save Carly…though she seems to have conveniently and ridiculously forgotten that. I mean, c’mon! He was relentless in his search to find and save her from Heather! Sonny didn’t so much as send his men out to look for her… Franco has been willing to sacrifice himself for Nina over and over, is quite protective over Kiki and has a charming… Read more »

I’m kind of sad, cause I always loved Ava and Kiki’s relationship… I hope Ava gets out of jail, she is so entertaining, my favorite thing about GH right now, I can’t wait to see where all this goes next.

She wanted in tbe room and I cheered her on, as I she was great . HALEY has made me care about the characterm I rhink changing her name back to Lauren will really make it her own.

Hayley gets a lot of flack but I prefer her much better than Kristen Alderson. I hope the character of Kiki gets to spread her wings out of the Morgan/Ava orbit that she’s stuck in. She is a Jerome so there’s got to be something they can do with that.

My thoughts are if Hayley’s hair was darker like Kristen’s was when Kristen had played Kiki that Hayley Would have fit in better as Kiki. Hayley is amazing actress and has skill but the hair color is all wrong! That would make a huge difference have Kiki’s hair the same color as she had before they recasted her!!

I haven’t been thrilled with HE until the Silas Murder storyline. I would welcome, as one poster noted, Kiki actually being found out to be Nina and Silas’ daughter. She would forge a new relationship with Nina and she already has one with Franco. The character may leave behind the Corrinthos and move on to new relationships.

The first thing I would do with Haley’s Kiki is turn her into a women. Adopt her real name. Lauren is much prettier and mature than that god awful name KIKI! Secondly, have her move in with Franco and Nina. Franco and Kiki, [Both Portrayers] had/have a special bond. Nina should be her mother.

Actually, Timmm, I feel for the actress! She came on board to GH in a totally thankless role and was handed garbage scripts from Day One of her debut as a recast for a very popular soap star. (It could not have been an easy task to take over from KA….) However, for HE to turn around her character, she needs to go back and begin where Kristen left off. Have her reunite with Mikey….he’s the one with whom she needs to go commiserate over Morgan’s (and her mother’s) betrayal. Since he’s so willing to forgive just about everyone else… Read more »

what seems very “soapy” is this movie within a ” ? … drama / serial”

as Dillan and Lulu get that much closer… because they’re shooting sex scenes, interchanging their mindset and losing all abandon…

Dillan doesn’t get his leading man… and will just have to step in….
Maxie is the only one left to “monitor” and/or jumps right in… menage a trois… she wants an oscar

ps: I think Dillan should dump Valerie and meet Kiki as well…

GH needs to simply let go of that menage a trois… and let Morgan and Ava BE

Patrick, I hate this movie story line. Its a way. like you said, for characters to bump and grind, legally, lets say. What I would do is put Dante and Valerie together and pair Dillon and Maxie. Send Lulu off to find her father off camera and bring back Julie Berman, next year. As for Nathan, I’ll keep him on the show for CeeCee BUT he and Rosalie hookup. I figure the two of them acting together could become a drinking game!

Sorry, but if Kiki left PC to “find herself”, I wouldn’t be upset. I was having trouble caring about this character even when KA was playing her and HE hasn’t exactly wowed me except when she’s angry. With so many other characters I’d rather see on screen, I hope the in-coming regime send her back to Grandma Delia in NYC.

@Rodd…I’d much prefer “Grandma Delia” relocate to Port Charles to keep an eye on Kiki….that lady’s a real kick! Selecting Ilene Kristen’s classic Ryan’s Hope character as Ava’s bio-mom was the one truly creative twist to Ron C.’s reimagined Jerome family saga!!!

I’ve actually started to like Kiki now that Hayley is playing the role and don’t FF the scenes with Kiki in it. I hope she is able to stay on GH now with the new writers.
