GH's Kirsten Storms & Jason Thompson Video Interview! What Are Their Hopes For Outcome Of Maxie & Patrick's Baby Dramas?



On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with two of General Hospital’s most popular stars, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) for this video interview at the ABC Summer Press Tour event (premiering the fall season) for the Television Critics Association (TCA) just a few days ago.

During the conversation, Kirsten and Patrick discussed the topic that is one of the most forefront on GH fans minds … what is going to happen when Maxie has her baby and all the deceit surrounding it? And, what is going to happen when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has her baby, that is supposedly Patrick’s?  Here now are some excerpts from what the stars had to say about all the drama, followed by the video!

KIRSTEN:  “I think in my storyline, I don’t think there is one resolution that everybody is going to be happy with. The fans are pretty divided on what they want the outcome to be.  I think no matter what … things are not going to go well for Maxie.  She has lied to just about everybody in her life, and in the situation. Obviously, things are going to have to start coming out because a few people know the truth, and I don’t think they are going to be able to keep that in for very long.  But that is kind of what we do this for … the big explosion of the storyline, and just to see the fallout of everything. I am ready for it to happen though.”

JASON:  “I am ready for the next part of this story, for sure. I honestly don’t know how this all plays out. We are back to work not this week, but the week after, and so I think it will start to shift going into the next couple of weeks.  So, I am kind of excited to read how this all plays out. There are a lot of questions that Patrick has right now about the situation that he is in. There was a scare on the health of the baby, and so I think he is really trying to zero in on that, and to make sure that this child is born healthy. I am sure once we find out that is the case, or maybe even before, there will be some fallout. Whether everybody’s happy about it, I don’t know, but I am probably sure most people in my situation would probably be happy that the baby is not his. I personally, hope it’s mine… I just want another kid!  It would be fun, why not? (Laughs)”

Now watch the video interview below, and also find out what Kirsten and Jason had to say, when Michael asked what if the GH powers-that-be where to ever think of pairing Maxie and Patrick together romantically?  Then, let us know how you hope the baby dramas unfolds!

o,k ,, micheal you are one hot man,,now with that out of the way,,,britts baby will be lulu and dantes ,,we all see that coming,,,of course maxie will keep her lil bundle,,,loving general hospital,,im totally in thrilled with it,,now if they would just use genie francis and robin matson a lil more,,id be in hospital heaven

Maxie and Patrick would have been fun! It would have added to the drama if/when Robin comes back.

They shouldve been paired together…

No way! Maxie and Patrick would be a shipwreck and an awful couple..

I keep thinking Maxi(with Spinnelis baby) and Britt(with Dante and Lulus baby) will go into labor the same day and someone, maybe Brad will switch them. That way when Maxi decides to keep the baby and insists its hers…but dna test will now show its Dantes and Lulus because of the switch and Britt will pass off Maxis/Spinnelis baby as Patricks.

Sounds logical, but I’m thinking there has to be another twist we don’t see coming here…exactly from where and whom Britt’s spawn originated is still anybody’s guess!!! Particularly with Dr. Strange O.’s fine hand in this mix!!!!!

Theres gotta be some kinda twist…i hope…it would make the story more interesting and exciting.

I have thought about the switch too and thought that would happen. However Dr O is involved and it’s very possible that Maxie’s baby is really not Spinelli’s and Brit’s baby is not who we think it is. There wil probably be a switch or a stealing of a baby to murk things up even more. I would love to see Maxie’s baby be Spinelli’s and wish that they could be a couple too! As for Patrick and Maxie… hmmm… no!

Patrick and Maxi wouldve made the story more interesting had they been paired instead of bringing on Sabrina. In wouldve been more suspenseful if Robin returned to find Patrick about to marry her good friend Maxi instead of Sabrina who she does not know. It wouldve made better drama.

that’s pretty good… JimH.

even with Maxie and Britt knowing she “lost” the baby… miscarried…

if she admits it’s hers…. the baby switch… and the dna results… will prove her wrong..

Maxie will come off as batty…. even if she does want the baby as her own.

this will give Britt more time… to?

Hey jimh… I wouldn’t say good friend… Maxie and Robin are family. They are a very unusual family situation but I believe we can say they are cousins and they were raised like sisters by Mac for many years. Family and holiday get togethers are with Robin and Maxie. I just got a chance to see the interview and I agree with Kirsten… they are related and it would be incestuous. Your ideas are great though and give us things to think about!

Thanks for the reply Heidi…are Maxi and Patrick related you say(is that why you said incestuous)…cause i didnt think they were related.

You are right… Jim! Patrick and Maxie are only related by marriage. Incestuous was the wrong word to use. It just would seem inappropriate to me and I Iike that they are family and are there for love and support… and they both are going to need a lot of that when these baby story lines break!

I want Spinelli to have his baby girl, with Maxie..
Spinelli would be a great father and he and Maxie and baby would be awesome..

I agree with you! I like Spinelli & Maxie together not so much with Ellie…

Thanks Michael for a great interview!!! Did you ask Kirsten if she is the actress on GH rumored to be engaged and pregnant? She is looking like she might be?

I won’t have liked Maxie & Patrick paired together…. I like Maxie with Spinelli…

I hope the baby Maxie is carrying is Spinelli’s and they get together. They are so good together because they work off each other. It is just a treat to watch them. Spinelli will be hurt because Maxie has withheld the fact that he is the father which causes them problems but they work it out. I hate to disappoint Patrick but I hope the baby Brit is carrying is LuLu and Dante’s. Maybe Brit will finally decide she doesn’t want to mess her relationship with Nicholas up so she comes up with a story that she knew about Maxie and her baby and decided to use Dante and Lulu’s eggs for herself and now feels they should have the baby.

I don’t know about Maxie and Patrick. But Kristen and Jason seem like two people you would be happy to be friends with..Maxie use to be a ditz,so pairing her with a brain surgeon I don’t know. She loved Robin and she does love Emma so I guess it could work.
They have had a lot worse couples on this show Sonny and anyone comes to mind. .We know the baby isn’t Patrick’s s its moot. Maxie’s is her own so I guess we have to wait and see what tiic of the show do. With them .It could be anything.

Speaking of paternity themes, does anyone else question whether Silas is Kiki’s real father??? There just seems to be something oddly suspicious about that whole scenario…Ava was so hell-bent and determined to hide the “truth” about her daughter and yet Julian was completely blase’ about revealing it. If DNA proves a match, there could still be the possibility that “Stephen Clay” is the daddy, and if not, dare I proffer the notion that it could also be Julian???? That whole relationship between Ava and her “brother” is strange…they simply don’t appear familial in the sibling sort-of-way, and also she has recently been displaying some off-putting vibes that scream “mental issues.” ( Like that chick just ain’t right….) Are these two both real “Jeromes,” or actually even related???? Just asking…..

I can not wait for maxie to give birth. I want to see maxie be a mother to her daughter

General Hospital Pays Tribute to Tyler Christopher at End of Episode, ABC Exec Nathan Varni Shares: “You’ll Always Be In Our Hearts”

If you caught the end of the Monday, November 27th Thanksgiving episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama ended the show with a special dedication to Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine), who passed away on October 31st at the age of 50.

With a very touching title card, and a photo of Tyler from his younger days as the dark prince of the Cassadine clan, it read, “In Loving Memory of Tyler Christopher.”

On Tuesday, November 28th, ABC Current Series executive, Nathan Varni, who oversees Grey’s Anatomy, The Conners, Station 19 and General Hospital for the network, shared on X some additional thoughts on Tyler’s contributions to the GH family.

Varni expressed: “This lovely tribute card was shown at the end of yesterday’s episode of GH In loving memory of Tyler Christopher. Thanks for bringing Nikolas Cassadine to life on our screens, you’ll always be in our hearts. RIP.”

Tyler played the role of GH’s Nikolas from 1996–1999, 2003–2011, and lastly from 2013–2016. He also took on the role of Connor Bishop from 2004–2005. The late actor took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 for his work as Nikolas.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

Photo: ABC

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
