Maxie’s back! Kirsten Storms  finally returned to her home away from home at General Hospital’s studio today after being away from the series for an extended period of time due to medical reasons.  During her time away from the Port Charles canvas, she was replaced by Jen Lilley.

It has been nearly since Storms has been gone and she tweeted her excitement with a photo of her name on a GH script for today!  She added,  “Happy Back to Work Day!!!! YAY!!  Bag packed. Off to work.”

Storms will first be back on the air on the September 5th episode of GH!  So soapers are you thrilled to hear Kirsten returned to GH today?  Let us know!

I’m happy she’s doing well, but I’d rather have Jen Lilley still be in the role as Maxie Jones.

Jen Lilley did a good job after being put in a very tough position, but Kirsten Storms is Maxie to me, and I’m glad she’s back. Looking forward to seeing her back on the air!

I think she did too. I am happy to see KS back, I am sure that JL knew it would happen. I don’t like to see any of the actors out of work and I hope JL finds new work soon. She did a great job.

So Maxie is back on the canvas by September 5th, I am thrilled that KS is back in the role. Currently it seems that Jason is on to something. I believe Maxie’s husband Matt will be out of jail soon too. I really think this new investigation will show that Ewen is the real Lisa murderer. I am looking forward to this so I hope it happens. Maybe Lisa knew who Ewen was and that he was not a Dr. at all. If you watched recently Ewen did get upset and did tell Kate to stop calling him Dr. We… Read more »

SO happy to have Kirsten back! Don’t mean to badmouth Jen, but she only kept the character on screen….she never was Maxie to me. I know she tried but I just couldn’t see her as Maxie. (Never saw Jennfer Bradford as Carly either.) I can start caring about Maxie again and can’t wait to see what she gets up too! Love me some Kirsten!

Wow.. Karen.. that is not nice at all.. as a new watcher to General Hospital, I loved Jen and thought she did a great job and will miss her much. I remember Kirsten for many years as Belle on Days of our lives.. She was good.. but was not too impressed with her on her reality show.. Try not to be a bully and insult Jen and call her “Dead Weight” .. She was not dead weight. She is a young talented actress that was in a tough situation and did well stepping in for an actress that left the… Read more »

Not sure if you read or watch any of Laura Wrights interviews. She is such a great person and she really supports her fellow castmates. Whether they are veteran GH actors, newcomers and even the OLTL veterans that have come to GH, she is a cheerleader for all. She happens to mention the many bad comments that she sees on comments from FB to MF and others. I know she does not like to see negative comments made about her colleagues. I will never know if she would see you comment or if Jen Lilly would see your comment but… Read more »

Boo Hoo Hoo Cry me a River!! Then I guess I’m not a true fan, especially with all the stupid writing going on over there. Maybe you should let laura & the other girl speak for themselves.

It’s true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I never cared for the character of Maxie but Jen Lilley made her unbearable! Maxie was never as whiny as she was when played by Lilley. Storms brings that bit of bitch and vulnerability, that while annoying, is so much better than Lilley’s version. Welcome back, Kirsten!!

So glad to see that Kirsten is back. Now that we have grown to love Jen Lilley, they need to give her a new role. Thanks Jen Lilley for playing the part.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
