General Hospital actresses Emme Rylan and Kirsten Storms that play Lulu Spencer and Maxie Jones have different takes on how to handle being home with their kids for a month. In light of the Coronavirus, GH is on a 4-week hiatus from shooting and most schools closed as well. Check out what the two actresses from the ABC sudser will be up to during their time off work.
General Hospital: Maxie Jones and Lulu Spencer – Besties On-Screen and Off
GH actresses Kirsten Storms and Emme Rylan portray Maxie Jones and best friend Lulu Spencer on the sudser. However, many fans know they’re best friends off-screen as well. No doubt, they have years of history and a lot in common. Plus, they both love to knit and share the blog Kickin it with Emme and Kirsten. Also, Emme owns an Etsy shop called Handmade by Emme Rylan.
The General Hospital fan-faves spend a lot of time together aside from the time they spend at the studio. But, with COVID-19 now a concern, ABC shut down GH production for the next month. Plus, schools shut down as well. So, Kirsten and Emme now find themselves home with their children, and need to find a way to cope. However, the General Hospital stars’ methods differ just a bit.
GH’s Emme Rylan’s Schedule to the Rescue
General Hospital’s Emme Rylan who plays feisty Lulu Spencer, has three children. Now, with the Coronavirus threat closing school, all three of Emme’s kids are home with her. She showed a pic of her boys watching Netflix but worries about boredom and them eating all the food in three days. Recently, the GH actress said she’s got a plan to keep the kids busy. Already, Emme’s expecting them to beg to play video games constantly.
So, the Lulu Spencer portrayer made a schedule with times for video games, meals, and exercise. Emme of General Hospital finds her kids do better with structure so they don’t wonder when they can hop on the game system. Surely, all they need to do check the schedule on the fridge and it’s all laid out for them. That way, the kids aren’t anxious and they won’t nag her. Would Lulu Spencer come up with a plan that clever?
However, Kirsten Storms, General Hospital’s Maxie Jones, takes a different approach.
Nintendo Saves the Day for Kirsten Storms on General Hospital Break
GH’s Kirsten Storms, who brings the character Maxie Jones to life, took a different angle while at home with her kiddo. Now that her daughter Harper Barash is out of school and home with her, she needs to keep her busy. So, she went out and got a Nintendo Switch from her favorite store, Target. Also, her ex-husband and Harper’s father, Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara on General Hospital), had the same idea. Turns out, he bought one for his house as well.
So, no matter where Harper is, she will have her Switch to occupy her. Certainly, a slightly different angle than Emme. Of course, her kids can play their games but just with a little more structure. Surely, both women are happy to spend time with their children but know how stressful it can be. So, Kirsten Storms and bestie Emme Rylan are fully prepared until the kids are back in school, and they’re back to shooting new GH scenes for the ABC daytime drama.
