Up-Close & Personal
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.
