GH Spoilers – Kristen Alderson Visits BFF Brittany Underwood
The actress also revealed that she visited her best friend, former “One To Live” co-star, Brittany Underwood. Viewers may recall that Alderson took on the role of Star Manning on the now-defunct sudser from 1998 up until the show’s cancellation back in 2012.
“I’m so grateful to have Brittany in my life,” Alderson said. “We managed to squeeze in four days of laughter and good times. Love you!” she continued.
Frank Valentini was the former executive producer of “One Life To Live.” When he moved to “General Hospital,” he brought Alderson with him and had her reprise her role of Star on the sudser. However, there were some legal issues involving the rights of the OLTL character. As a result, Alderson dropped the role of Starr and debuted the character, Kiki Jerome, in 2013. When she decided to leave the show in 2015, Hayley Erin took over her role until the character’s death in 2019.
