Last weekend, it came as a shock to us all that actress Kristen Alderson would be leaving her role as Kiki Jerome on General Hospital. Alderson has been with the ABC network since she was 6 years old, working on the now canceled daytime drama, One Life to Live.
In a report last week, General Hospital Blog relayed Kristen’s message to fans that she would be making a goodbye video, explaining the reasons behind her departure. In the mean time, real life boyfriend Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) sent out a tweet to Soap Opera Digest, informing the magazine, and fans, that this was entirely Kristen’s decision. The actress had not been let go from GH, but rather she decided to take her life into a new direction.
In her goodbye message, Alderson explains to fans that she has been with ABC soaps since she was 6 years old, she is now 23, and is ready to challenge herself in her career.
Check out her thoughtful, heartfelt video to her fans.
