AceShowbiz - Kirsten Storms has confirmed that she's temporary leaving "General Hospital". The 32-year-old actress took to Twitter on Sunday, May 29 to share that she would be taking some time off from the series to focus on her health.
"Tweeters! First, thank you for the outpouring of love & support. I appreciate all the positive message I've received," Kirsten wrote, "Second, yes I am taking a little break from work due to some skin issues I've been having. My dr's say my breakouts are due to stress, but shouldn't take too long to get under control. (I can say that I'm on the better end of it now)."
"However, it was becoming too difficult for GH to cover up. And we all know in this biz appearance is important," she added, "In the meantime, I look forward to watching Molly on screen as I take the next few weeks to heal. Again-thanks for the love and you will see me again in no time!"

Daytime Confidential previously reported that Kirsten would be temporarily leaving "GH", the show she has been a part of since 2005. "Days of Our Lives" star Molly Burnett is stepping in for the time being.
This won't be the first time Kirsten has been replaced at "GH". Jen Lilley replaced her as Maxie from September 2011 to August 2012 while she was on medical leave from the show.
