BEST IN SHOW
ON THE OCCASION OF HER 15TH GH ANNIVERSARY, KIRSTEN STORMS LOOKS BACK ON THE HIGHLIGHTS OF HER RUN AS MAXIE.
Mara Levinsky

Best Thing About Playing Maxie: “The little moments that they give me, like, the subtleties of her responses. The fans don’t see it but they’ll write something in the [script] for a reaction or whatever. Sometimes when I read it, I’ll be like, ‘Huh. This seems odd to have this here.’ But then I get upstairs and run my lines with that actor and the note that the writers put in makes so much sense, or that note gives me an idea of how to expand that idea. It’s a constant challenge and I like challenging myself.”

Best Thing About Working With Lindze Letherman (ex-Georgie): “When they bring her back as a ghost, she and I run to each other and hug each other like we haven’t seen each other in 10 years. She’s just the sweetest. Mark Teschner, our casting director, who’s won countless Emmys, not only hires extremely talented people, but I feel like he can see into their souls when he’s casting them. He picks people who are grateful to work there, appreciative of the other actors and what they’re bringing to the table, and Lindze is no exception. She’s just a beautiful person inside and out. I wish they had never killed her off. That damn Text Message Killer!”

Favorite Maxie Outfit: “The ‘Spixie’ wedding dress. Oh, my God, I loved it. And when Mary Iannelli was the designer, the outfits she chose for all the ’40s flashbacks I had with Bradford [Anderson, Spinelli]. I felt like a movie star in those outfits.”

Best Thing About Working With Kristina Wagner (Felicia) And John J. York (Mac): “They’re both such nice people. I feel close to them. Kristina is like a ray of light. She’s just always so happy and considerate and asks how I’m doing and gives me a hug if she feels like I need one. And John is great, too; he’s fun and jokes around. He’s just like a dad. It’s really just a pleasure to work with both of them.”
