SID Announced today that Jen Lilley will be leaving GH and Kirsten Storms will be taking back the role of Maxie Jones. I know a lot of people will be happy-- and as a fan of Kirstens's I am as well. I will also really miss Jen. She embraced the complex character of Maxie; she of rapid fire dialog and quirky personality traits. I think Jen did it with gusto.
KS left right in the middle of the JaSam wedding reception and 'poof' Jen stepped right in. It couldn't have been easy. Maxie was on almost every day and also had the break down after Robin "died". Talk about into the frying pan!
The other thing I admired was her embracing of twitter and the GH fans. She engaged in a dialog with GHers at a time when many of them didn't want to hear about anyone "taking over" Maxie.
With her bigger than life eyes and peppy personality, I really took to Jen and found Maxie with a bit of new life. When Kristina Wagner came back, Jen even looked like she could be her daughter. I think she grew into the role and I give her credit for everything.
Here's hoping that Jen finds great success in her career. She's already been in "The Artist" (THE movie of 2011) and upcoming Pepsi commercials that go through time. Jen also attended the FCW and had a fun bowling party with fans last night.
Good Luck girlie!! Now you're part of the GH family--meaning we are going to be following you everywhere. Sorry about that!! ;)
