If you followed Kirsten Storms ( Maxie) of General Hospital last night on her fun twitter page, you may have gotten some clues as to whether or not Storms is getting set for her big return to the soapland!  As many know, the beloved and talented Storm, took a medical leave from the ABC soap several months ago and had been temporarily replaced by actress, Jen Lilley.

Now Kirsten tweeted, “Handled some bizzznaaas today. being a grown up is tiring…AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS!”

Then Storms fans and followers began to question what she meant by her tweet where she next indicated to them,  “You will be happy with this news. (and good guess btw) ….I ‘m trying to give you as many hints that I can without getting in trouble….sssshhhhh.”

Are you excited if Storms is finally on her way back into the action of Port Charles, just as new EP and headwriter, Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati are taking over the PC ship? Let us know!

I’m decdicated to Kristen and (Maxi) because of my commentment to the show. But I will tell you something, her replacement has had to be the one of the HARDEST and MOST SIGNIFICANT in daytime history, because of HOW the role is played. Actress, Jen Lilley. has been remarkable bringing the kind of energy to the character that Kristen does. In fact yesterday, I was on line and I had to STOP and look up to the T.V., because Jen Lilley soundes so much like Kristen. Dorothy Lyman was the 1st Opal on AMC and then Jill Larson took ovver… Read more »

I agree with everything you said. Jen is doing good but there no one like our Maxie. Hurry back Kirsten. You always crack me up.

I cannot wait for Kirsten to come back to GH. The story lines lately have been pretty bad. Kirsten is a great actress and she brings something to the show. Jen Lilley had some big shoes to fill and unfortunately she is no where near the level of Kirsten. She is quite annoying trying to act like Kirsten. It would have been better direction for her to bring her own to the role. I cannot even watch her scenes. As soon as she comes on, I have to fast forward through it. Which is too bad, because I really enjoy… Read more »

If this is true, welcome back Kirstin. Your replacement did a good job, but you are the best.

I think that Jen Lilley has done an OUTSTANDING job in portraying Kirsten’s, Maxie, as true to form as humanly possible– but we are all looking forward to the day that Kirsten reappears on our screen as Maxie Scorpio Jones!

I may be in the minority, but I prefer Jen Lilley in the part. Her chemistry with the rest of the cast is off the charts and she brings a vulnerability to Maxie that is both heartbreaking and a joy to watch. What she’s done with the character is taken her from ditzy ingenue to neurotic adult and I’ll miss her when she leaves 🙁

This NuMaxie did a great job. But its time for KS to come back and be written as a women with ‘issues’ not as such a scatter brain.

Lilly has done a good job replacing Kirsten, but I can’t wait for Kirsten to return, she is perfect for the role of Maxie.

And so is Lilly. That girl is so good that U can almost forget she isn’t Kristen if you are JUST listening and not watching. It happened to me. I had to STOP what I was doing and look at the televison screen. That has only happened to me once before with a replacement.

I would love it if Kristen can come back soon. She is one of my favorite GH characters. However, I have a feeling that the change in mangament and writers has caused issues,. That might be the reason for the absense of Lucky , Luke and Robin’s characters leaving GH. I hope that the writers will see that this is indeed a bad move as all of these actors have made the roles and characters who they are and NO other actor as been able to replace them.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
