Storms, who's played Maxie Jones since 2005, is suffering from skin issues brought about by stress and is taking a short break.
‘General Hospital’ star Kirsten Storms has explained that she’s taking a break from the long-running soap opera because of “skin issues” caused by stress.
The 32 year old actress has played Maxie Jones on the ABC medical drama series and its spin-off series ‘General Hospital: Night Shift’ for all but one year since 2005, forced to take a leave of absence for a year after being diagnosed with endometriosis in 2011.
Us Weekly previously reported last Friday (May 27th) that she would be taking another break. With her doctors telling her that some skin issues she’s been experiencing lately are down to stress, she took to Twitter over Memorial Weekend to thank her fans for their support.
