Kristen Alderson may have left GENERAL HOSPITAL, but her work as Kiki earned her another Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress. She learned the news when boyfriend Chad Duell (Michael) checked Twitter and reported that they’d both earned Emmy nods! It’s pretty crazy that we can share in that, too,” Alderson marvels. “I think we’ll look back at this time and be, ‘Wow ,how cool is this?”
And while Alderson is still eligible for Younger Actress, Duell graduated out of the Younger category this year. “I’m so proud of Chad,” she beams. “This is the big league, now. Supporting Actor is a whole other ballgame. It’s really tough to get into. It’s a really big deal.”
To earn the nomination, Alderson submitted the dramatic dissolution of Michael and Kiki’s relationship. “When Kiki walked in on Michael sleeping with Rosalie and then he, basically, breaks up with her,” she explains. “I just found a dress today, too, which I’m really excited about.
“I found it, but I still want to call and see if they’ll lend it to me,” Alderson continues. “It’s $1100, and that’s a lot of money to spend for one night Usually designers are willing to lend it out to you. So I have to call and make sure. It’s floral and looks very spring.”
