Kristen Alderson On Her Final GH Scenes With Roger Howarth: "Roger And I Were VERY Happy We Had Those Scenes Together."

Courtesy/ABC

Monday marked the final episode of Kristen Alderson in the role of Kiki Jerome on General Hospital.   As viewers know, Alderson decided to exit the series and the role will next be played by Hayley Erin.

In her final scenes, Alderson acted with her long-time scene partner, Roger Howarth (Franco). But while Kiki and Franco are not biologically related on GH, when on One Life to Live, and early on during their time on GH, Alderson played Starr Manning, and Howarth was Todd Manning.  This was prior to the Prospect Park lawsuit entanglement.

As a nod to their time when they were on-screen father and daughter, the GH writing team wrote-in that while Franco was still suffering the effects of LSD, he spoke to Kiki as if he was his bio-daughter, and even talked about the difficulties he has had in his relationship with her mother.  But he wasn’t referencing Ava Jerome!   One Life fans know it was Blair he was referencing.

After the scenes aired today Kristen tweeted: “Roger and I were VERY happy we had those scenes together. Thanks @carlivatiron & @valentinifrank #shorty”   She also tweeted:  “Now I think today is really my last air date on @GeneralHospital … Thank you again for all of the overwhelming support & love.”

Ron Carlivati clarified on Twitter that when GH knew Kristen was exiting the show, they wrote-in the scenes between her and Howarth!  The head scribe tweeted: “We rewrote them after we found out Kristen was leaving. Her scenes in this episode were originally with Morgan. #GH

And in a beautiful and emotional moment at the end of the episode which felt like Howarth saying his farewell to Alderson, he said in a speech: “You’ll find something that you love to do and do it. And don’t ever marry a man unless you trust him.  Most importantly, believe in yourself.  I want you to have an OK life.  I think you deserve that.”  Alderson’s Kiki then says, “You don’t have to do this.  I’m not saying goodbye forever.”   To which Roger replies: “Maybe you are.   So just in case  …  goodbye.  You’ve been a gift to me.  I won’t forget you.”   It was Howarth at his best!

What did you think of the scenes between Kristen and Roger?  Were you sad to know this was the final airshow of Kristen’s?   Share your thoughts on the final moments below!

I actually did cry, Judy. The dialogue between Roger and Kristen was from the heart. They have shared such closeness as Todd and Starr….such life-lasting friendship, and perhaps as close as a father-daughter relationship two actors working together could possibly share. It was so sad to see their loving exchange; to hear the affectionate praise for each other. Their mutual respect was palpable…I was moved beyond words. The scene was real and honest ….I was present in the makeshift hospital room. I feel as if I’m losing a friend…watching Kristen/Kiki standing in that doorway as she bid her ‘last’ farewell… Read more »

Hey, Mr. Fairman? Could you consider installing a “like” button in here similar to the one on Facebook? I don’t want to litter your comment section with a bunch of “I agree Jim!” or “Well said, Shay!” or “You are right on, Rebecca!” comments.
That said, I really like Cee Cee’s post. It’s eloquent and poignant and worthy of the aforementioned scene.

kevin
Guest

Yep! I appreciated the multiple levels that the dialogue was reflecting: Franco & Kiki; Todd & Starr; Roger & Kristen. The emotion was genuinely heartfelt, certainly – nice work again, Mr. Howarth. Best wishes following your dreams, Kristen: “Go get ’em, kid!”

It was awesome and sooo beautifully delivered from a “father” to his “daughter”, recalling their relationship they had since she was a very, very young girl. It was obvious that RH meant the words even though they were written for him and the tears were genuine. I cried too for it ended a long, long loving relationship between two actors that have spanned the time. And yes, I agree with Magic, I, too, loved that scene/moment and it was an fantastic nod to OLTL.

Because I have watched One Life to Live and General Hospital from inception, I knew those farewell scenes were written for Todd And Starr, and that poignant moment reflected everything I knew about them from the moment she was born to Todd and Blair on One Life to her exit as Kiki Jerome. Howarth is a brilliant actor, in my opinion in line with the likes of Deniro and Brando to name a few. Give him the break he needs and let him shine! Kristen, you will be missed!

I teared up watching this scene! I realized that Franco was channeling Todd in these scenes, and I was watching the last scene thru blurry eyes. I watched Kristen grow up from a little girl, have a tv daughter and lose her. She was wonderful as Starr and it’s only the mess with prospect park that turned her into Kiki, which unfortunately never connected with the fans. I will miss this beautiful actress but know she has a wonderful future, and I can’t wait to see her in other things!!

Kristen has been around a long time and is a pro. Maybe it was the name KiKi that just never quite “fit in.”

I wanted him to say “Go get em’, Shorty” at the end instead! They may have been portraying Franco & Kiki, but we were watching Todd & Starr….& then at some point Todd & Starr became Howarth & Alderson exchanging their goodbyes/best wishes. I loved it. I wish they would have had more screen time together. I cried.

My gut told me that was her final scene. I’m glad the writers did that for Kristen & Roger. It was just really sweet. When she blew him that kiss, I was like, “Even if it’s not her last day, that’s her last moment with him.” It really was so good! Good job Ron & Frank!!

I loved Franko’s (Todd) & Kiki’s (Starr) scenes together today. I kept thinking about thier many years of history together. Since she was a very little girl. I couldn’t help but have tears in my eyes. Father and daughter for ever.

You could tell that it was their final scene. It was such a touching tribute to the both of them, their chemistry as father & daughter is evident (One life to live). The small tear out the corner of Roger’s eye was genuine and heart felt, I was sad that I will not see them together in this special way. I’m a long time OLTL fan from when Kristen first came on the scene. I will miss her & wish her the best in her next project. xo

I loved it and I got it. I knew exactly what Ron was doing. It’s his love and genius of soaps that’s gives us the joy of what’s left after the genre’s decimation. It’s time for Vicki and/or Dorian to check in at GH. Maybe as patients or donors to the hospital…something. Everyone else had their moment. Or one stint of Erica Kane…selling something, lol.

Never fortunate enough to have children, but I felt the way others are saying they felt about all this. Watching her grow up from a terrific child actor to an even more wonderful young adult actor. It feels like my tv daughter is going off to experience the World. As it should be. I grew to like her as Kiki but yes, she will be Shorty in my heart. The scenes were wonderfully written and acted.

As a GH viewer, I loved this episode with scenes with Kristen and Roger, back in the day, my Grandma would watch OLTL and in the other room, I’d watch AW. Anyways, I really enjoyed the crossover of Blair, Todd and Starr on GH briefly a few years ago, and I was really hoping Kristen’s last scene would be with Roger and, somehow would incorporate the OLTL characters, intertwined into story with Kiki and Franco. Thank you GH for giving Kristen her final scenes with Roger, they were so deep and full of history between this two actors and their… Read more »

It was fabulous! You could feel the love, warmth and respect between Roger and Kristen. It was obvious, even with Roger’s eyes welling up that he was speaking to Kristen. A wonderful, unforgettable moment! Sad to have Kristen leave after watching her grow up on OLTL, but it usually happens sooner or later. I wish her all the best and I hope to see her back in something soon. It would be wonderful to hear her sing again! She’s beautiful and talented!

I will miss Kristin Alderson so much. I watched her on OLTL since she was a tiny little girl and then on GH. I hope Kristin will join GH again one day after she explores other things. She is a wonderful actress!! 🙂 Roger and Kristins last scene today made me feel sad because I knew it was the last time I would see her unless she returns eventually. I dont blame her though, she has been on soaps for many years and she is a young woman. Go get ’em, Kristin!! 😉

Thank you Roger and Kristen for the walk down memory lane today. I am still saddened by your departure Kristen. I will miss seeing the two of you sharing scenes. Kristen you look so much like my daughter Emma who passed away over 6 years ago. She had the same spunky fire for life that you brought to the roll of Starr and Kiki. Hopefully today was just saying see you later someday. Maybe Roger and Kirsten can have their own prime time show some day as a father daughter investigation team that would be great. The father daughter chemistry… Read more »

Kiki and Franco, bah….let’s face it folks, it was Starr and Todd and we love them and miss them. Kudos to the writers and to Alderson and Howarth. All gave the fans, at long last, what we really wanted from them … to have Starr and Todd, if only in parting.

Rose
Guest

It’s too bad there wasn’t a parting like this for OLTL. It’s still unfinished business. Or maybe…we can only hope something will rise out of the ashes. Hope springs eternal, especially if you’ve seen as many come back to life on GH.

I loved the scene at the end of the show today with Franco and Kiki. It brought back the sadness I felt whe One Life to Live went off the air. I knew Kristen Alderson was leaving I just didn’t know when. I could read between the lines though that this either was her last scene with Roger Howarth or her last scene altogether. I wish her good luck I’m whatever she does.

As soon as the scene started, all I could think about was Todd and Starr. What a great tribute to both the actors and the characters they portrayed for so many years. One year when I was at Disney’s Super Soap weekend, I had the opportunity to meet Kristen Alderson when she was very young. She was a joy to meet.. A very humble actress. I have watched, recorded , read abut GH, since the first episode April 1, 1963 and I’m still a fan. When OLTL started , I became a fan and was very sorry to watch it… Read more »

Thank you to all for a proper finish for these awesome actors!!

I’m getting teary again just reading this. It felt real, not like acting. Too bad there wasn’t a picture of Blair on the table next to the bed. See, Ron!

Bring ’em on! PP was such a disappointment, not only for dropping the ball on AMC & OLTL but for what they did to the plot lines and characters while they had them. I didn’t watch AMC but, as far as I’m concerned, OLTL ended with its next-to-last episode on ABC. That gave me all the closure I need and, apparently, all we’re going to get.

The RH and KA scene was gifted! Gifted actors and writing! Not only was it “Todd talking to Starr” it appeared it also was Roger talking to Kristen. It is a difficult departure for those of us who have watched KA grow up. Kristen I know your STAR will continue to shine.
It’s to bad that they (the writers) never took the time to develope “Kiki” maybe KA would have stayed a while longer.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
