It’s unclear why Kirsten Storms needs to take some time off, whether it is personal or work related is unknown.  But, TPTB at the ABC soap opera is reportedly searching frantically for a temporary replacement to fill Storms’ shoes and play the part of Maxie Jones.  This isn’t the first time Kirsten took some time off, she went on medical leave in 2011 and ‘Days Of Our Lives’ star Jen Lilley filled her shoes.  Of course, Jen is busy playing the part of Teresa Donovan now.  However, Daytime Confidential is reporting that another former ‘DOOL’ character, Molly Burnett, is being considered to take over the part of Maxie on a temporary basis.
