Kirsten Storms (Maxie, GENERAL HOSPITAL) had a lot to say on Twitter last night. The actress — who has been on medical leave for several months — has been dropping hints regarding her GH return for several weeks, but seemingly confirmed the news that she’d soon be back… without actually confirming it.
“Handled some bizzznaaas today. being a grown up is tiring…AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS!” the actress tweeted. When a follower asked if she had signed back on at GH, Storms replied, “well then you be happy with this news. (and good guess btw).” And when another fan pointedly asked Storms to confirm if she was indeed coming back, she posted, “I’m trying to give you as many hints that I can without getting in trouble….sssshhhhh.”
As revealed on DIRTY SOAP, Storms took a medical leave from GH as a result of her endometriosis; ABC temporarily cast Jen Lilley to play the role of Maxie, and there don’t seem to be any hard feelings on Storms’ part about the decision. (Lilley is due to report to the GH set next week when the soap resumes filming following its holiday hiatus.) “I think we should def[initely] go to lunch or something,” Storms wrote to her recast.
Stay tuned as this story develops!
UPDATE: A spokesperson for GH tells Soaps In Depth that “at this juncture, there’s nothing new to report regarding Kirsten Storms’ return.”
