Friday morning according to Soap Opera Digest, ABC has now officially confirmed the first airdate back for Kirsten Storms in her pivotal role as Maxie Jones!

Storms, who took a short leave from taping the series and was replaced temporarily by Molly Burnett, will be back in action on-screen on the upcoming Wednesday, August 3rd episode.

That is good news for GH fans, who have been excited to see how Kirsten mixes it up with new cast member Bree Williamson’s Claudette as their story with Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) begins to pick up steam.

So, excited about the news of Kirsten’s on-air return in just a few weeks? Comment below.

I like MB’s more mature and measured portrayal of Maxie better. I hope KS adopts some of that into the Maxie character when she returns.

Good. Molly filled in well but Kristen IS Maxie. Now a suggestion. Nick Stabile has been on fire as Nick. We all assume TC is coming back? Thats fine, Tyler is great as the Prince. Could ABC PLEASE use Nick Stabile as a recasted Nathan West? The character is in a big story and he CANNOT handle working with all the talent around him! He is ruining important scenes! Nick Stabile will knock it out of the park!

Ahhh, my Timmmbo. Firstly, I’d be heartbroken. I say; Do you want that on your conscience?
Secondly, he is too old to be Nathan!!!!! But, I do want him with Maura…..in whatever capacity.

Be sure to circle KS’s return date for your little man, Nico! He’ll be over the moon that “RealMaxie” is back!

@Shay.
LOL. Done and done.
Nico whined a bit here and there because he didn’t see Maxie. He recovers quite nicely as soon as his cousins come around. Playtime is apparently more important.
At least, she’s coming back before the school year starts and before he goes to day-camp.
He asked me if Maxie could come to his birthday party…LOL. Out of the mouth of babes.
Wow, Shay!! You remembered my son Nicholas’ moniker. Sweet.

Great idea, Timmm! The current Nathan is a snooze.

I suppose Maxie will sleep with Griffen after Claudette drugs Nathan and gets him to sleep with her…Maxie has also slept with Nathan and Claudette has slept with Griffen…here is the shocker…both women get pregnant…Maxie doesnt know if her child is Nathan’s or Griffen’s…Claudette doesnt know which one is the father of her child…one is Griffen’s and one is Nathan’s but which lady has which father’s child…oh, no…there was a baby switch at the hospital…Maxie thinks she has Griffen’s and Claudette’s is Nathan’s or is it the other way around?…they could easily figure out the baby switch-Maxie had a boy… Read more »

I like Molly Burnett dahmit!
She is not juvenile and has grownup smarts about her ..
Molly Burnett as Maxie is more sophisticated in the role

but- Kristine Maxie will do .. lol

Agree su0000!! Molly has brought this wonderful maturity to Maxie..Kirsten’s Maxie, has been getting on my nerves for a couple of years..Her acting has not evolve and nor has her character, still the ditzy and whinny inmature Maxie.

Oh well, welcome back Ms Storms!

I don’t understand, Michael. What do you mean? I do not think Kirsten had a controlled substance problem. She had an issue with her skin, at least, that’s what I believed.

She can’t come back soon enough for me.

I am kinda gonna miss Molly in the role ,but Kirsten IS Maxie. Hope I get to see Molly in another role soon on daytime ! She did very well subbing for Kirsten.

I can’t wait to have Kirsten back… she is Maxie and no one else has ever been able to do Maxie like she does. Jen came close, but Kirsten has something special that she brings to the role of Maxie!

Molly has not cut it at all in my opinion and I can’t wait to have the Maxie I love back!

I’m very happy Kirsten is soon back!
Molly did an OK job, but after seeing her in several different roles now, I still don’t care for her acting “style.” She does a couple weird things, with her mouth and body language, that bug me! LOL

Soaphound

Soaphound

Yes, Szima, I noticed that too. There are times she seems to be talking while trying to remove peanut butter from her teeth. Which, I believe, was how they got the horse in MR. ED to simulate talking. I actually didn’t mean that the way it sounded. I like Molly very much as Maxie and of the recent additions (the laughable Aaron –who probably couldn’t even SPELL chef– , Nurse Amy, Rachel’s mother, Andre, and especially Claudette) she is by far the best fit for GH. Maybe in a different role later on, or as a replacement for the hard-to-take… Read more »

Glad that Kirsten Storms is returning as Maxie. She’s just great. I did enjoy Molly Burnett’s temporary portrayal of Maxie, and I agree with Melissa that Molly Burnett played a more mature Maxie, and I’m hoping that Kirsten Storms will do the same, when she returns. Kudos to both Jen Lilley and Molly Burnett during their temporary time as Maxie. Claudette (Bree Williamson) is going to be a first-class b–ch-on-wheels! I just loved her as Jessica Buchanan on One Life to Live (ABC-TV, 1968-2012). You know, she’s reunited with Roger Howarth (Franco), who played her uncle, Todd Manning, on OLTL,… Read more »

One thing I forgot to mention about the two temporary Maxie’s, is that Jen Lilley, after her temporary time as Maxie on GH, went on to play Theresa on Days of Our Lives, and dyed her hair, from blonde to red, for that role. Molly Burnett came in the opposite direction. She first played Melanie on Days of Our Lives, and then came to GH, to play Maxie temporarily, and left her hair as it was on Days of Our Lives, a sort-of, reddish brown.

I also often wonder whatever happened to two other actresses who played Maxie on GH?! Robyn Richards, who played Maxie for quite a while, and Danica Stewart, who played Maxie for a little while?! They both seem to have disappeared, and we really don’t hear anything about the two of them at all. The only thing I know is that after Danica Stewart left GH, she went on to play the fourth, and final, Jessica Bennett on the long-defunct supernatural soap opera, Passions (NBC-TV, 1999-2007; DIRECTV, 2007-2008). Other than this, I have no idea where these two actresses are now,… Read more »
