Two days before the airing of One Life to Live's series finale on ABC, the network announced that Alderson, and several other co-stars including her onscreen parents Kassie De Paiva and Roger Howarth would be reprising their roles on the last remaining ABC soap opera, General Hospital.
In January 2013, news broke that Alderson and other One Life to Live co-stars who had been airing on General Hospital were to depart or "at least temporarily exit".
Alderson defended One Life stating that the show had always had a rich musical history, and that what set them apart from the things they were being compared to was the unique characters and storylines.
In summer, 2011, One Life to Live, which would soon be cancelled, kept with the musical theme for the character of Starr by having her develop a friendship with college DJ Baz Moreau (Barret Helms) and the two begin writing and recording music together, much to the dismay of her then boyfriend, James (Nic Robuck).
Alderson described Starr as being very stubborn when she does not get things her way or when someone goes against what she honestly believes is right; very much like her parents.
Alderson said, "Lately, we haven't seen that side of her because it hasn't had to come out.
