Ava has been trying to reach her daughter and it looks like she's finally getting her wish — Hayley Erin is returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Kiki Jerome! Entertainment Weekly broke the news that the actress would be reprising her role the week of Aug. 20 for a ghostly visit with her mother. "Surprise surprise!" Erin tweeted after the news broke with a selfie from the studio.
Erin took over the role of Kiki from Kristen Alderson back in February of 2015, and in November of 2018, the character was brutally murdered by serial killer Ryan Chamberlain. Erin moved on to primetime playing Taylor Hotchkiss on PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: THE PERFECTIONISTS, but told us at the time she was flattered that the soap chose to kill the character instead of recasting again.
Ava has gone to two separate psychics in the hopes of contacting her daughter's spirit, but both of them claimed Kiki was still angry with her mother for falling in love with the man who turned out to be her murderer. Hopefully, this visit from her daughter's spirit can finally bring Ava some peace.
