It’s hard to believe but it has been 18 years since soap superstar Jack Wagner has played super spy Frisco Jones on ABC’s General Hospital!  Well, all of that is about to change on Monday, when Jack brings Frisco home to Port Charles!

And in an exclusive teaser and preview of what is to come, Access Hollywood was on set with Wagner when he taped some of his key scenes with former real life wife and on-screen partner Kristina Wagner (Felicia)!

Wagner told Access Hollywood on coming home to GH:  “It is a bit weird, I’ll tell ya.  I think in life we can never anticipate where it’s going to take us.  So to be back here and working with Kristina (Felicia)my ex-wife who is just so beautiful and wonderful, and to have so many of the core characters back on the 80’s when it was General Hospital was huge, its been awesome!  I’m really happy and I am glad I came back. ”

Access Hollywood promises more on Monday with Jack; including the taping of some emotional scenes with Felicia and Frisco!  Now, watch the segment after the jump, and check out the retro clips of Frisco in the 80’s and some of your other all-time favorites!  Then let us know, are you excited about a Frisco and Felicia reunion?

The man ia a great golfer therefore out in the sun a lot and he also has had a history with alcohol. That unkind people have talked about on twitter. Some men are not any different then women in the industry they get caught up with plastic surgery. Just one of those guys that plays hard but I still love him and will take him anytime over the no talent newbies.

Wow….who says guys can’t be catty…meow! Here we are in what we thought were the death days of soaps when we wouldn’t have these shows to faithfully watch every day, some of you mystify me with your comments. GH is doing great…in fact probably helping Katie in some markets and Frank/Ron are bringing back favorite characters that the audience hasn’t seen in decades and all you can whine about is a Wagners face? I’m just astounded. News flash to Matthew and Joe, we ALL age. I’m sure it’s soooooooooooo much fun to comment behind a computer and one doesn’t see… Read more »

hey ROBBYROB! Seems like your face work didnt go well either like Jack Wagner’s didn’t guess I struck a nerve… Pitty Maybe, JUST MAYBE if people DID just age garcefully instead of going for the scalpel or the botox then it wouldn’t BE such an ageist society. THEY are the ones that are feeding into it…NOT ME. And don’t you dare sit back and criticize my observations. They have nothing to do with who Frank and Ron are bringing back. Apples and oranges. Just because they gave JW a boat load of money to pop in for a small stint… Read more »

So Sorry Joey…didn’t realize your little snippy comment about Wagner’s face was about him only staying for a short term gig. Hmmm….I should have thought that was your intention all along. Silly me indeed. So GHs bad ratings are solely from short term gigs?? Not the previous regime killing off beloved characters that HAVE stayed decades? Not the previous regime for making GH so dark & violent that viewers turned away. Nope, according to your inspired braintrust, its because certain actors dont stay on their soaps for decades. Wagner has a lame career as you say. Why be pissed at… Read more »

LOLZ @Robbyrob. First of all I’m 30 so I highly doubt I look like I have aging issues at this point. On the contrary I’ve been told I have a baby face and people can’t believe I’m even 21 at the liquor store half of the time. And I resent your implication that I’m not an enormous fan of Jack Wagner/Frisco. If you had read my own personal comment further down and not just my reply to Joe’s matter-of-fact observation maybe you would have realized that I’m thrilled he’s back. This doesn’t mean I don’t resent Jackie Zeman who I… Read more »

I am so excited about Jack Wagner (Frisco) returning, and yes, I would love for Frisco&Felicia to reunite, as much as I love Mac. There is no couple on GH that has ever been as magical as those two were for me. I hope Jack will get a chance to sing ..

I was young but I remember when he was abducted then came back from the ‘dead’ after being held captive and Felicia had moved on with Colton Shore. One of my earliest GH memories. When I think of my childhood, Frisco and Felicia always come to mind.

its exciting to see all these great stars of the past, and the fact that all these characters have such rich history, its awesome, GH is so good now, hope as they celebrate their 50th anniversary they keep bringing back old faves. and mixing new storylines with the newbies and vets and making new history for us to enjoy.

Die Hard General fan since the days of Scottie, Luke and Laura and I’m usually good at guessing what’s next but this threw me for a loop even with all the previous cast returning…I am very glad about Genie Francis’ return but I have mixed emotions about Jack Wagner. Mac deserves some happiness and not Frisco’s second’s. The story lines on General keep coming and that keeps me watching…welcome back Frisco.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
