Kristen Alderson as GH’s Serena Baldwin

The latest rumor that has hit the GH grapevine involves Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr Manning OLTL and GH). Recently the actress was forced to leave General Hospital due to legal issues with Prospect Park and the rights to her character’s name, Starr Manning. Since the production and upcoming re-launch of One Life to Live, Prospect Park is not allowing General Hospital to use the Starr Manning character name.

ABC and General Hospital have decided they want Kristen Alderson to remain part of GH but are not allowed to keep her in the same role. Thus resulting in having to give the actress a new identity in the fictional town of Port Charles. Rumors suggest that Alderson will now be playing the role of Serena Baldwin, Scotty’s daughter. Serena was born to Scotty and his late wife Dominique in 1993. Lucy Coe was the surrogate during this time, as Dominique was dying from a brain tumor. This news is still in the rumor phase and has not been confirmed.
