Maxie is going to look a little different on General Hospitalfor a while.
Daytime Confidentialreports that Kirsten Storms is taking some time off from the soap. Storms will be replaced by Days of Our Lives veteran actress Molly Burnett starting in July, according to the site.
Storms has played Maxie Jones on General Hospital since 2005 and hasn't taken a major break since 2011, when medical issues sidelined her for roughly 10 months. The shakeup comes just as Maxie's storyline is expected to heat up. One Life to Live alum Bree Williamson is heading to Port Charles to play the ex-wife of Maxie's current fiancé Nathan West (Ryan Paevey).
Don't be too sad about Storms taking some time off though. You can get your fix this weekend by watching Storms in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and Zenon: The Zequelduring the Memorial Day weekend Disney Channel Original Movie marathon.
