Last year Kirsten Storms shocked the soap world when she left General Hospital soon after announcing her divorce.
She eventually revealed that she left due to stress-induced skin issues that were making it hard to work, even with heavy makeup. According to Soaps In Depth, Storms has chosen to leave the show again, although there’s no official change in her contract status.
A rep for the soap said that Storms has chosen to take more time off. This break seems to be coinciding with Ryan Paevey’s time off to shoot a movie, so we might not see Nathan and Maxie for a while as they enjoy marital bliss.
Last year, former Days of Our Lives actress Molly Burnett took over the role while Storms was away, and in 2011, another ex-DAYS actress, Jen Lilley, played Maxie when Storms left for health reasons.
There are no details yet on why Storms left this time, but Soap Hub will update you as we know more.
