General Hospital is getting ready to celebrate with its fans next week when the show turns an astounding 50 years old!  Access Hollywood caught up with one of the fan favorites in Port Charles, Kirsten Storms to talk all things Maxie in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

One things that is certainly difficult for Kirsten, is the departure of her GH closest pal Julie Marie Berman (Ex-Lulu), who filmed her final scenes with Storms.  Kirsten told  ‘Access’ on Julie’s exit: “I actually got to have Julie’s last scene with her, which was so emotional. We could barely look at each other. It was great. She started a few months after I started. So I really do feel like my entire General Hospital experience has been with her. I feel lost without her now, but I know we have a great actress coming in (Emme Rylan) to pick up for Lulu and we’re just going to keep going with the story lines.”

Kirsten also has gotten the opportunity to work with her on-screen bio-dad during GH 50,  soap icon, Jack Wagner as Frisco Jones.  Fans have loved Kirsten and Jack’s scenes together since his return to GH.  Kirsten related,  “I love working with Jack. I was definitely nervous when I first worked him!  My mom watched him on Melrose Place when I was growing up. But he’s amazing. Talking to him, he has had a lot of crazy life experiences, and we have been able to put some of that stuff in to our scenes with each other.  And, I love the dynamic between Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and Jack.  It’s been really cool to see them together.”

As far as keeping the secrets to the upcoming Nurses’ Ball, Storms revealed, “Our boss Frank Valentini (GH EP) strikes the fear of God in all of us! (Laughs) They have been going to a lot of lengths to change the cast names on the scripts, so it doesn’t get out with who is coming back, but we all respect the show.  So we are all doing our best to keep our lips shut about things!”

The big question though remained! Will Maxie tell Spinelli she is pregnant with his baby? Or, still give it to Dante and Lulu and pretend it’s their child she has been carrying?  Kirsten expressed, “I don’t know if we are going to get the resolution that everybody is hoping for.  I think maybe some fans may be satisfied,  and I know some people are going to be disappointed, because there are people on both sides of this situation that want Maxie to tell the truth, or don’t want her to.   I have no idea what is going on, and they have not told me.  I hope I get to keep it.”

Now below, watch Kirsten’s video interview with Access Hollywood, then let us know, if you hope Maxie tells Spinelli that the she is baby is his, and she gets to keep it? Or, do you want Dante and Lulu to raise the little bundle of joy?  And, have you enjoyed the emotional scenes between Frisco and Maxie?  Weigh-in!

Yes! Spixie should raise their own baby. Spin wants to be a father and deserves to know he is going to be one!

Jack and Kristen have had some of the best father/daughter scenes iv ever seen lately on a soap. Hope J.W. makes future visits to the show if not staying but it would be better if he could and would stay but ill settle for occasional visits which is better than nothing. I feel Maxie will at the last minute decide to keep the baby. Maybe Ellie, instead of possibly going Britch on us, will learn about the baby and tell Spinnelli which doesnt necessarily mean he’ll dump Ellie for Maxie…at least for awhile.

I hope spin never has to be with Maxie again..
She was terrible, gawdawful hurting him, she tore his heart out ; poor Spin..
Maxie does not deserve him.. Hope I never see them as couple, again..
Spin was her lap dog..

RUN SPIN RUN!!!!!

Maxie needs to tell Spinelli the truth, they belong together anyway. Lulu and Dante will get a child somehow.

nawww lol Spinelli and Maxie are a terrible couple!
Maxie runs shotgun on poor sweet Spin..
I treat the gophers in my yard better than Maxie ever treated Spin..

Spin and Ellie are a perfect match ,,

I agree that Maxie treated Spinelli terribly. BUT she was young, fickle and didnt know who she wanted. Now she does. She has learned along the way and now is carrying hid child, the child he WANTS to have. You and I both know she will keep the baby, and when he finds out its his, Ellie will be history. She loves him but they have a fundamental difference in wanting children. This choice along wirh religion and money matters jave ruined many couples. Better they find this out now than later. We will see who is right. Maxie is going to tell Dante the truth, I believe next week.

Kirsten –

I miss you as Belle.

This is: currently: my favorite story-line.

Jack Wagner, is impressive.

His stoic, delivery.. is sexy!

he’s leaving it to us… viewers… what to think about Frisco. and it’s sizzling… to imagine… well, maybe not… ie: a matter of choice… however… it’s catching to respond.

you can see… the chemistry… the understood LOVE… Felicia and Frisco.. have. the underlying schematic… he’s “restless”, for adventure… and not entirely about Love.. settling down. sounds obvious… but…it’s a mother’s trial… she’s not undone by knowing LOVE w/ another.

Mac.. is that good guy… like Spinelli… that I root for.

it’s with age… you have that picture…. and you let go…. ie; when Felicia and Anna… turned the page… (the picture over)… they released that pharamone.

————–

has Maxie dissed Spinelli too far gone? Yes… had their been no child?

it’d be amazing to watch Maxie… GROW. graduate from child to Woman. honest revelation with her being.

—————

Finally.. acting… for Kirsten to revel in….

Jenn Lilly… was Kirsten… and now… Kirsten can capture her back.

Thank you Maxie… for standing your ground… and to your “father” …. You Love Mac.

watching Maxie make those baby steps…to maturity…

Tina

Frisco needs to go and so Mac and Felicia can get on with their relationship.

Love her! Maxie and Kirsten Storms are just the best. Her scenes with Jack Wagner were some of the most memorable for GH 50th Bring him back full time!

I’m in the minority, but I really hope Dr. Britt was wrong and the baby is Dante and Lulu’s.

Hope Maxie & Spinelli get back together & keep the baby. Also love to see Frisco back. Hope he stays or at least comes back from time to time.

On a negative note: hate the Roger Howarth,Michael Easton, Kristen Alderson situation. I love Todd, Starr & McBain. I heard that PP was impossible to deal with. Doesn’t surprise me. I love both shows but this is a lose/lose way to resolve- or not resolve this issue. Now we have the GH actors being forced to play different characters while OLTL re-casts the roles.

I want Spinelli and Maxie back together also! Since he wants to have children in the near future and Ellie doesn’t want to have children at all!

I AGREE

Frisco if he wins her back, will go charging off to save the world and leave her again. Its what he does, and who he is. He loved his girls but he left them for Mac to raise and be a father to them. Its not biology that makes a parent, its the one
in the trenches, there day in and day out, being there. Frisco is the dasing, romantic, still sexy bad boy

Eileen Hargis

We all have one in our history but rarely do we marry them cause we know they dont last!

I think Felicia should stay with Mack! Frisco can’t stay in one place for very long! He never did. Mack alway’s has Felicia’s back! He is true blue ! He adores her & Maxi, who he raised not Frisco. Felicia told Mack & Frisco that she loves them both! Who will she pick to stay with??? I think she will pick Mack!

Maxie will give up Jackal Jr. & the truth will be revealed @ the most inappropriate time after Dante & Lulu have had some quality bonding time with the new baby. That’s how soaps work. Sidebar: hope one of the 3 departed/returning actors will be the missing Q heir.

I’m really tossed up in the air about the baby that Maxie is Carrying. So we will just have to see how it turns out..I’m actually on both sides. However when Maxie had her Sonogram and Spinelli accidentally walked in She was just about to tell him and Ellie walks in (So uncool)

Yes she needs to tell Damien it’s his baby. And she should keep it!

Samantha

I think Brit will grow a conscious and tell that she implanted herself with Dante and lulu’s embro. And maxie tells the truth about her baby. So donte and lulu get there baby and maxie gets to keep hers.

Nolegrad

I think Britt is having LuLu and Dabte’s baby from one of the embryos so LuLu will get a baby and Macie will keep hers.

Tess

I am so hoping that Maxie will tell Spinelli, and that they become a couple and get to raise the little girl.

Susan

I love Maxie,she should tell Spinelli,but not get back with him.She treated him like a dog,but when he met Ellie,she wanted him back. Britt should tell Dante and LULU that the baby she’s carring is their’s.I hate her,will Patrick’s wife ever return.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.
