Kirsten Storms
Port Charles Presence
At A Glance
Born in Orlando, Florida in 1984, Kirsten lived the normal life of a child until she was five years old. While performing in a showcase at an area acting school for kids, Kirsten was discovered by a talent scout who convinced her parents to enroll their young daughter in an intensive children's acting program in the Catskills in New York. The opportunity was too good to pass up. However, Kirsten would need to make this trip on her own. The sacrifice paid off when the training culminated in an off-Broadway show where the five year old caught the eye of many agents and talent scouts.

Kirsten's first professional acting job was a commercial for Galoob Baby Doll, a gig she landed before she even returned to Florida. The rising star spent the next several years commuting back and forth between New York and Florida with her mother, Karen.

Kirsten's first television series was a recurring role in the series Second Noah, portraying the best friend of Hannah Beckett. Shortly after the series ended its run, the Storms family decided to head west and give Hollywood a try. Kirsten soon landed the role of Laura Cummings, Simon Camden's girlfriend, on the hit series, 7th Heaven. Sadly, Laura broke Simon's heart when Kirsten was chosen to star as spicy, free-spirited Zenon, in the Disney Channel's original movie Zenon, girl of the 21st Century. Kirsten portrayed the younger Melissa in the acclaimed made for television movie Love Letters, directed by legendary Stanley Donen.

Kirsten celebrates her birthday on April 8.
