■ When it be­came clear that it wouldn’t be pos­si­ble for Hay­ley Erin to con­tinue play­ing Kiki while shoot­ing her new se­ries, THE PERFECTIONISTS, GH’S writ­ers were faced with a de­ci­sion about her char­ac­ter’s fate. “We didn’t con­sider a re­cast,” CoHead Writer Shelly Alt­man says. “That didn’t mean we weren’t think­ing, ‘Well, we cer­tainly could keep the char­ac­ter alive.’ There were many op­tions, but the tim­ing and the story we were telling with Ryan [Kiki’s killer] just re­ally worked and it was im­por­tant to us that one of Ryan’s vic­tims be some­one who mat­tered quite a bit to a lot of dif­fer­ent peo­ple on the can­vas — and Kiki cer­tainly fit that.” While they were sad to wrap up Kiki’s arc, “We are very happy for Hay­ley,” Alt­man adds. “Ob­vi­ously, we will miss her, but [her new gig] is just great and we wish her the ab­so­lute best.”
