Kristen Alderson (Donna Svennevik/ABC)
Kristen Alderson came on the scene of OLTL as Starr Manning in March 1998. At the age of 4, Kristen's dance class was chosen to be a part of a local talent show, Al Albert, officially putting her into the world of acting when she was individually picked to be on the show each week. After seeing one of her performances, an agent suggested she audition for the Broadway production of "Annie," which landed her the role of Molly. After coming home from being on tour for a year, at the age of 6, she auditioned for the role of Starr on One Life to Live. Recognizing her Broadway stint on "Annie," the producers offered her the role of Starr Manning.
Although thoroughly enjoying her character as Starr, in the future, Kristen looks forward to trying her hand at television movies and the big screen. In her spare time, between work and school, she likes being with her friends and family, just being a teenager.
