Lauren Katherine "Kiki" Jerome was a fictional character from the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She was the daughter of the late, Dr. Silas Clay and his ex-mistress, mobster turned gallery owner Ava Jerome.

She was conceived during an affair her parents had while her father was married. She was formerly believed to be the daughter of Franco, due to Ava's lies.

The character was originated by actress Kristen Alderson, who held the role from May 2013 to February 2015. It was announced, on January 23, 2015, that actress Hayley Erin would be Alderson's replacement and she debuted on February 26, 2015. She made her last appearance on November 28, 2018, although returned in Ava's dream on August 23, 2019.

Casting

Alderson was originally on One Life to Live as Starr Manning from 1996 until the shows cancellation in 2012.

Alderson had previously appeared on the series as her One Life to Live (OLTL) character Starr Manning from 2012-13, when Alderson and several co-stars carried their roles over to General Hospital upon One Life's cancellation.[7]

When OLTL was relaunched as a web series, the production company Prospect Park reacquired the rights to the character. Instead of waiting to re-introduce the character, the producers of General Hospital created a new role for Alderson.[8]

Alderson first appeared, in her new role as Kiki Jerome, on May 13, 2013, as a series regular.[9]

Like Alderson's former character, Starr Manning, Kiki was eventually paired with her then-boyfriend, Chad's character, Michael Quartermaine.

On January 10, 2015, Soap Opera Digest reported that Alderson would be leaving the series and her role as Kiki to pursue other interests.[10][11] On that same day, Alderson's then-boyfriend, Chad Duell took to Twitter stating it was her decision to leave.[12] On January 13, 2015, Alderson confirms her departure in a video, stating it was a spur of the moment decision.[13]

Alderson's last scene, on February 16, 2015, was with her former OLTL co-star, Roger Howarth, who currently plays Franco on GH, but who also played Alderson's on-screen father, Todd Manning.

Alderson won her first Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2013 and was nominated for two more Daytime Emmy's for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2014 and 2015.

Characterization
According to Alderson, Lauren is very different from Starr, but said the two still had some similarities.

Alderson had been posting several pictures via social media but intentionally hiding her hair leading to speculation that her appearance would be very different.[9] A SOAPnet promo confirmed Alderson's change in appearance in early May.[14] Alderson revealed to Soap Opera Digest that Kiki is reminiscent of a younger Starr who is quite the trouble maker.[15]

Alderson said she "channeled the sassy, spunky bad girl that Starr used to be before she matured." She continued, "Kiki's also a little more seductive."[16] Alderson described Kiki as being "darker and edgier" then her former alter ego. Kiki is "risqué" when compared to Starr who is a "one man kind of girl."[17]

On January 23, 2015, actress Hayley Erin, formerly known for her role on The Young and the Restless as Abby Newman (2008-10), was announced as Alderson's replacement.[18][19][20][21]

The network released a statement to wish Alderson well on her career and to confirm Hayley Erin's casting. Alderson herself also congratulated Erin on her casting on Twitter.[22]

Erin received a callback after her initial audition to read opposite head writer Ron Carlivati. "It was between me and one other girl" though she was unaware that it was for a recast. After the audition, Erin left the studio and was quickly contacted by her agent and manager instructing her to return to the studio for a wardrobe fitting. "I started crying a little bit" she revealed. Up until a few days before her audition, Erin revealed that a return to daytime after five years was the last thing on her mind. Erin had just expressed her interest in appearing on another soap and she booked the role of Kiki later that week.[23]

Erin made her first appearance on February 26, 2015.

In the summer of 2015, rumors circulated that Erin would be replaced by a returning Kristen Alderson. Network executive Nathan Varni denied the rumors and said "I have a lot of faith in the role of Kiki moving forward. Varni also praised the actress and said "I think Hayley [Erin] is doing a fantastic, admirable job as Kiki."[24]

I walked in here having to work with things that had already been established. Now I have things that are mine, that I've created... It just keeps getting better and I am so happy to be here.

On October 2, 2018, after weeks of speculation comes confirmation from Daytime Confidential, that the actress is taking a bow from the role she began playing in 2015. A final airdate for the actress is forthcoming but fans are encouraged to watch 'GH' weekdays on ABC to see how to she exits. Erin is already set as a series regular for Pretty Little Liars spin-off, The Perfectionists.[26][27][28]

She made her last appearance on November 28, 2018.

On August 20, 2019, Entertainment Weekly announced that Erin will return to GH for a brief appearance.[29] She returned on August 23, 2019 in Ava's dream.

Characterization
When Erin started the audition process, the producers told her, "Yeah she's a bad girl. We're gonna make her edgier." While those were the intentions for the character, during Alderson's tenure, the writing strayed from that path.[25]

Hayley Erin found it easy to get a handle on the character describing Kiki as being "so relatable." She continued and compared Kiki to her former role as Abby Newman on The Young and the Restless: "Abby was very one-dimensional... . Kiki's got layers" Erin said. The actress described the character as "kind of tough" yet "sensitive."[23] Of the writings bringing back the character's edge, Erin said "Now, it's fun" and "they made a character that a little foggy seem clearer."[25]

Background

In November 2009, actor James Franco began appearing on General Hospital as a guest star as the crazed artist turned serial killer, Robert Frank, aka Franco.[30]

The character of Lauren was first written into the series on December 21, 2009, when Franco mentions to Carly Jacks. Lauren was apparently taken away by her "bitch" of a mother.

Dillon and Kiki make love

In 2017, Kiki and Dillon become a couple. In May, they performed together at the 2017 Nurses' Ball. Kiki was Dillon's date to his brother and Olivia's wedding.

Dillon and Kiki broke up when he left town.

On May 21, following the Nurses' Ball, Kiki and her mother's on/off boyfriend Griffin go up to a room at the Metro Court Hotel, where they drink, dance, and end up having sex. They vow afterword to never tell Ava.

On June 13, Kiki reveals to Port Charles that she has been experiencing sexual harassment. Lulu writes an article on her story and titles it #GHTOO. Alexis is representing Kiki as her legal counsel. Meanwhile, people around Port Charles are reacting to the story. Ava is upset and furious that Kiki didn't tell her this beforehand and thinks that she's a horrible mother. When Kiki shows up she asks her to explain why she didn't tell her this was happening. Kiki says she is dealing with it in her own way and doesn't want her mother involved. Ava doesn't want to accept this and assures her that if she gives her a name that her and her Uncle Julian will take care of it. Kiki refuses and asks her mother to leave her alone. Franco also finds out, and since he treats Kiki like a daughter, he is outraged. He is looking at the article when Dr. Bensch walks into the room and Franco immediately has his suspicions and pins him to the door, threatening him all the while. Elizabeth walks in and tells him to reconsider what he's doing. He reluctantly lets him go and relays his suspicions about the doctor being Kiki's superior and the one who is sexually harassing her.

In August, Kiki sues Bensch for harassment. They go to trial, and Bensch wants his lawyer, Scott Baldwin, to use an incriminating photo of Griffin and Kiki in his defence. Scott, acting against his client Bensch's interests, tells his son Franco that he overheard Griffin and Kiki talking about their one night stand. Franco attempts to tell Alexis, accidentally tells Ava instead, and is run out of court for being disruptive. A furious Ava confronts Scott, who reluctantly gets Griffin to admit under oath that he and Kiki had sex.

This admission doesn't derail the case, and Kiki wins her suit against Bensch, who is then fired from GH.

In September, Griffin has to move into the studio at Kiki's apartment after Ava got him fired from GH. When the heat breaks, he and Kiki find themselves hot, sweaty, and scantily clad in her apartment. They grow closer, share stories about films and their annoyance over Ava, and their attraction grows deeper.

On September 28, Maxie invites Kiki to be in the next issue of Crimson in a fashion spread, to continue sharing her story, empowering women to own their beauty and strength, and show other girls they don't have to put up with harassment.

Griffin encourages her to do the article, and they go to lunch at the Rib, a way of Kiki saying thank you.

On October 4, Kiki runs into Griffin at the gym. She admits that she wanted to sleep with him the night of the Ball, and that she still wants to be with him. He wants the same, and the kiss, beginning a new relationship. They agree they want something more than revenge against Ava or uncontrollable lust - but rather something they could make last. They agree to a first real date at the upcoming Port Charles Film Festival at the Metro Court.

On October 16, after attending the festival, they go back to Kiki's apartment where they watch a musical, then make love.

On October 26, Kiki meets Sasha Gilmore, who at the time was believed to be Silas Clay's long-lost daughter with Nina, and thus, Kiki's paternal half-sister. They get along immediately, though Sasha's attraction to Griffin does not go unnoticed. When Sasha decides to stay in PC, Kiki immediately invites her to move in, which she does on November 2. The "sisters" enjoy bonding with each other.

On November 9, after studying and making love, Kiki witnesses Sasha hit on a dumbfounded Griffin; leaving the couple disturbed.

A few days later Kiki goes to Crimson while Sasha is working and tells her that her relationship with Griffin more than casual and that t is best that she moves out. She tells her that they moved to fast with the whole sisters thing and that it was best for both of them.

Franco tells Kiki and she goes to the Metro Court Hotel where she sees them together. She gets mad and leaves. Griffin is able to see that Sasha was drugged and he goes and tells Kiki. She and Griffin quickly realize Ava set it up in revenge. Kiki goes after her mother, finding her at Kelly's with "Kevin", confronting her over the situation. Kiki tells her mom that she never knew how to be a mom, and that she hurts everyone she claims to care about.

On November 26, while getting ready for Curtis and Jordan's wedding, they discuss Ava's extreme revenge strategy, then make love on Kiki's couch. Griffin has to go to GH and sign documents from the board - before he leaves, they make plans to get away somewhere warm for the holidays. They kiss, he leaves, and Ryan Chamberlain shows up shortly after, and murders Kiki.

On November 27, 2018, Kiki was found dead by newly weds Curtis and Jordan Ashford, after being murdered by Ryan Chamberlain. Griffin, then Franco, are both initially accused, before Ryan is found out.

After Ava's despair and devstation over losing her daughter and discovering her new lover was actually the serial killer who murdered her, she seeks out a psychic connection to Kiki. She asks psychic Sibley Gamble to make contact with the other side. During Franco and Elizabeth's wedding reception on The Haunted Star, Sibley is able to make contact with her, but Kiki does not want to see Ava, being bitter about her being in love with her killer. Sibley says she leaves, but the last thing she says to Sibley is that she loves Avery. Sibley channels Kiki, who is still furious with her. Ava later hires a different psychic named Chelsea. They go to a park that Kiki liked, and Chelsea getts messages from Helena, Connie and Kiki. Ava wants to know if she liked the magazine cover, and Kiki did not. Chelsea also tells her that she cant forgive Ava because her killer still has her heart. This causes Ava to go to Pentonville to talk to Ryan. She tells him that he needs to let her go so that Kiki can finally rest.

Ghost Kiki confronts her mother Ava

On August 23, 2019, while Ava reads the negative comments on the Crimson article, Kiki appears and asks her mother if she really thought a magazine cover was her shot at redemption, and wonders what Ava truly regrets. Ava regrets that they were mad at one another when she died and that she believed Ryan’s lies. Kiki accuses Ava of choosing Ryan, the only man to understand her, over her own daughter. Ava denies this, and asks for her help, or she'll never find peace. Kiki tells her, “Because of you, neither will I.” They argue about their relationship, Kiki accuses her mother of using her death and making it all about her, but now the world sees her for who she really is. Ava asks Kiki what she has to do to gain her forgiveness. Kiki can’t help her because she’s dead and vanishes before Ava’s eyes. Ava wakes up from her dream and cries that Kiki got her wish and she’s alone.
