“General Hospital’s” very own Maxie Jones is celebrating an amazing milestone this month. Maxi’s portrayer, Kirsten Storms landed her first-ever role in the daytime on August 5, 1999.
During this time, she made her debut as Belle Black on “Days of Our Lives.” She took over the role until 2004, and she easily became a fan favorite. During her stint, she won a Soap Opera Digest Award in 2001 and a Young Artist Award in 2002.
When she left “Days of Our Lives,” it became easier for her to move to another show. She brought with her everything she learned as Belle back in DOOL when she moved to “General Hospital” where she plays Maxie Jones until today. Her impeccable performance in GH has earned her nomination for a Daytime Emmy Award for Younger Actress in 2009.
