Kristen took the role of Starr Manning to “General Hospital” (GH). She then originated another role on GH, that of Kiki Jerome, now played by the luminous Hayley Erin. She recently said she’d love to come back to GH as Starr.
Kristen has been nominated for four Young Artist Awards and one Soap Opera Digest Award. She has been nominated for three Daytime Emmy Awards and won one.
