At the tender age of five, Kirsten Storms already knew what she wanted to do with her life, she longed to perform in front of the camera. Kirsten would tag along with her father, Mike, to the CBS affiliate in Orlando where he was the sportscaster. She would saunter onto the news set pretending to be the weathercaster. The station recorded her forecasts so the rising star could critique her "work." She was hooked! Which leads us to her role as precocious Belle Black (Deidre Hall & Drake Hogestyn's on-screen teen daughter) in the long-running hit daytime drama, Days Of Our Lives.
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 daughter in an intensive children's acting program in New York. The paid off when she caught the eye of several major casting directors.
After numerous commercials, Kirsten's first television series was a recurring role on ABC's Second Noah. When the series ended its run, the family decided to head west and give Hollywood a try. Kirsten soon landed the role of Laura Cummings on the hit WB series, 7th Heaven. She was later chosen to star as spicy, free-spirited Zenon in the Disney Channel's original movie, Zenon; Girl of the 21st Century. The movie had the largest rating for any Disney Channel original movie.
The busy young teen also appeared on Lifetime's weekly series, Any Day Now with Annie Potts. Other credits include the Disney syndicated series, Sing Me A Story With Bell and The Trojan Horse, a Hallmark Entertainment production. She also completed principal photography in Disney Channel's Johnny Tsunami.
Kirsten is the middle child. Her older brother Austin is in the military and has been overseas for a while. He is currently in Afghanistan and although Kirsten misses him a lot, she understands how important his job is. Her younger sister Gretchen is also an actress.
Kirsten is a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan and definitely loves basketball more than other sports. The only sport she does not really like is baseball, which is ironic since she was on a show about baseball.
Her best friend is Farah Fath (Mimi, Days of our Lives) and Kirsten is currently dating Erik-Michael Estrada (O-Town).
Since May 23, 2005, Kirsten has been portraying Maria Maximiliana 'Maxie' Jones (#3) on the soap opera General Hospital.
