GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Maura West isn’t big on giv­ing ad­vice, per se, but on-screen daugh­ter, Hay­ley Erin (Kiki), can at­test that the Emmy win­ner is a much bet­ter role model then Ava! “It’s not about Maura specif­i­cally telling me how to do things, but just get­ting to work with a phe­nom­e­nal ac­tress, you’re go­ing to pick things up,” she ex­plains. “I see what she does! I get my scenes and I read them through, but part of the fun of work­ing with Maura is I can read the words on the page… but I never know what I’m ac­tu­ally go­ing to get when we get to set! There’s some­thing about her hon­esty and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the ma­te­rial that’s so in­ter­est­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing. So I’ve def­i­nitely learned just from watch­ing her, be­ing around her and work­ing with her. It’s in­valu­able. I wouldn’t trade that for the world. I feel re­ally lucky to be play­ing her daugh­ter. It’s an honor, for sure.”

Erin holds West in high re­gard.
