Kristen Alderson may be leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL, but the soap isn't losing the character of Kiki Jerome. Daytime Confidential is reporting that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Hayley Erin (ex-Abby) will be taking over the role. Coincidentally, Erin was replaced as Y&R's Abby by Emme Rylan, who is now GH's Lulu!
"As many of you know, Kristen Alderson has decided to leave GENERAL HOSPITAL and start a new professional journey," a show spokesperson says. "As a member of our ABC family since she was six years old, we will miss Kristen and wish her only the best in her new ventures. As a result, the role of Kiki Jerome will be recast with Hayley Erin. Hayley will start appearing as Kiki in late February. Please join us in welcoming Hayley to our cast."
Seeing as how Kiki is currently embroiled in raising her baby sister while her mother is in prison and possibly rekindling feelings with her ex-husband, it's no wonder that GH has chosen to recast the role. Where the character will be taken next remains top secret! Stay tuned!
