Good news Maxie fans! The feisty blonde is staying put as her portrayer, Kirsten Storms, has signed a new contract with General Hospital.

Storms took over the role of Maxie Jones in 2005 and totally made the character her own. There was some skepticism when she took on the role, as fans were used to seeing her as the sweet as pie Belle Black on Days of Our Lives, but as we all know, different roles bring out different things in actors and Maxie certainly brought out the edge in Storms.

With Maxie desperately trying to win Spinelli back, but still attracted to Johnny and learning that her boss is the one sabotaging the company, it looks like she still has quite a bit to do in Port Charles! is happy to have Kirsten stick around and looks forward to seeing what’s next for Maximista!
