Kristen what a fantastic job you have done. I am a long time fan of yours and of the cast of One Life to Live. I’m glad that One Life to Live is back on. Loved the transition to General Hospital as well. The best to you in your career, I’m sure additional Emmys will follow.

Ive watched Kristen grow up. I couldn’t be prouder than if she were one of my darling nieces. And speaking of proud of, how about the rest of the Alderson family? I think Mr. And Mrs. Alderson deserve an Emmy for raising not just one,but two show biz kids that aren’t screwed up.

This is why we as viewers hate the sudden aging characters you let her grow up on the soaps so you tend to love their character more. KM from GH Cassie from Y&R they are still living that down. Congrats!

I am soo happy for Kristen, she deserved it and this was WAY overdue for her. So bittersweet that she can no longer play Starr on GH as she and Michael really could have had something special. She has grown up to be an incredible young woman and it has been a pleasure watching her grow on OLTL and now make the transition into a new character on GH. Best of luck to you Kristen, you are a class act!! 🙂
