As fans come to terms with the fact that Kristen Alderson has decided to leave General Hospital, it was inevitable that the role of Kiki Jerome would have to be recast. Kiki is too involved in current story lines to just have the character killed off the show or move away. Also, Kristen Alderson has already taped her final episode, which would leave no time to develop a story for the character’s demise.
TPTB moved quite quickly in hiring the new actress to play Kiki Jerome. The Young and the Restless star (Abby, 2008-2010), Hayley Erin will take on the role and step into Kristen Alderson’s shoes.
General Hospital Blog sends well wishes to Kristen in her life’s new direction! Kristen as been part of the ABC Network since she was 6 years old. Her role as Starr Manning on ABC’s One Life to Live has left a lasting impression with soap fans everywhere. We also welcome Hayley with open arms to the GH family.
