Catch up With Soap Star Kristen Alderson!

Don’t miss your chance to catch up with daytime alum Kristen Alderson during a special live chat in The Locher Room on Wednesday, July 20 at 3 p.m. ET!. Soap fans watched her grow up on ONE LIFE TO LIVE playing Starr Manning, and she brought that character over to GENERAL HOSPITAL after OLTL’s cancelation. She then began playing an all-new character, Kiki Jerome, after legal complications forced GH to stop using OLTL characters at the time. The actress earned three Daytime Emmy Nominations for her work on GH, taking home the trophy in 2013.
