GH's Kristina Wagner Opens Up About Working With Her Ex-Husband, Jack Wagner!

Courtesy/OWN

Kristina Wagner has been a longtime fan favorite as Felicia on General Hospital.  In addition to life in Port Charles, Wagner appeared in the Hallmark Channel drama When Calls The Heart in 2015, which stars Kristina’s former real-life husband and former GH star, Jack Wagner (Ex-Frisco Jones).

In a new installment of Oprah: Where Are They Now? airing this Saturday, March 5th at 10PMESTon OWN, Kristina recalls when Jack asked her if she would like to take on a role in When Calls The Heart.

Kristina expressed what it was like, or if she had any apprehension working with her ex: “I got a phone call from Jack that said, ‘What do you think? Would you like to come work with us up in Vancouver, and be a part of the show?'”

She said it was not a problem working with Jack again:  “It’s so much easier, because I can go on set and establish my boundaries and my needs and my wants and get through these scenes, and work with him as a professional actress rather than a girlfriend or wife.  It’s really important.  It’s fun. We’re having fun.”

Watch a clip from Kristina’s interview on Oprah: Where Are They Now? after the jump!  Then let us know, do you wish Jack Wagner would return to GH again and share scenes with Kristina, or has that ship sailed since Felicia chose Mac (John J. York) after the Nurses’ Ball in 2014? Comment below!

I will always hope jack Wagner returns to GH one day. Frisco and Felicia are soulmates and if we got him back Mac wouldn’t stand a chance. Frisco and Felicia have that amazing love story from the past. There the Jasam from there day.pleas return jack you are so missed. They are what got me hooked on gh

Frisco can return anytime if the writing is good and if it means more Felicia…i remember when GH felt like an ensemble show…now its either Jason/Sam/Liz, Nick/Hayden, Sonny/Carly or Nina/Franco while the rest of the cast are used as stage props or not shown at all….the shows opening should feature Laura, Monica and Tracy…Monica should not be recurring…bring back Jeff Webber…i doubt RDA would return so i would settle for a recast…would be nice if Liz’s father made a visit and even nicer if Monica and Jeff rekindled their old relationship.

Agree with you. GH is all about Sam/Jason & the Liz nonsense & Sonny/Carly again. How many times do we have to see Sonny/Carly together for the like thousand time. Monica should definelty be contract as well as Ric. Rick Hearst is an amazing talented actor that should be into the stories going on now & he deserves a great s/l & Love Interest of his own. Would love to see much more of Mac & Felicia. Like the story with Tracy hope it continues. Done with the Hayden/Nick thing. She would have been better off with Ric. And if… Read more »

Well, they have kids together so its good to see they get along. Now, my theory on Felicia. Seems she has Lauraitis! Not taking anything away from Genie or Kristina but GH could never find a way to write for these ladies unless they were attached to Luke and Frisco. Laura has tons of family on the show and they do NOTHING with her! Felicia doesnt have a lot of family but her and Maxie are great together. They had a scene the other day where Felicia bought Nathan a poodle. It was great! Do more things like this! Use… Read more »

Felicia looks like she could be Maxie’s big sister–she is eternally youthful and beautiful. She is also quite charming and it is mind boggling that they don’t have her in front burner storylines along with Mac.
No, instead we get slimy Nina or the overwrought Ava and all the scenery is chewed up.

We need Felicia & Mac back on contract with a great story. They are great together. Wouldn’t mind if Frisco came back, if a good story could be written even if it’s a short arc. Great Ned is coming back. We need our vets like Ned Ric Monica Tracy Anna Laura Robert in great story for them. A little less of Alexis & Julian. Ever since he supposedly left the mob they are so boring. All they do is have sex. They had more interest when they fought over the mob. Still believe he’s in it up to his neck.… Read more »

On the surface I can concur with your theory, Timmm, but only in the most superficial of ways. Yes, there is a like situation in the that there is a dearth of good storylines for both ladies, but that’s where the similarity ends. With the effervescent Genie we have a true GH star in every sense of the word….she was at the forefront of the show when Luke came on to ride her already impressive coattails to supercoupledom. The opposite is true of Felicia….her greatest contribution to Port Charles has always been as the other half of Frisco in their… Read more »

“All I need is just a little more time To be sure of what I feel is it all in my mind ‘Cause it seems so hard to believe That you’re all I need” Frisco’s feelings for Felicia and my feelings for your posts! I know, I’m weird but creative people tend to be! I think you flushed out the truth, its not about Felicia at all, its my desire to have Frisco back! I love him and I love your idea that he and Anna could have sparks? I hope to hell that Maddox and Anna are not heading… Read more »

Well, upon that we can heartily agree, Timmm! I also want Frisco back in Port Charles! (Just not for a reunion with Felicia……) He can run the town, the PCPD, whatever his heart desires….it would be great for Maxie to have her father close by and there are enough old friends around with whom Mr. Jones can reconnect…..particularly the oh so lovely Anna! (I actually envisioned him with this sultry spitfire of a spy back in the day….I always thought they’d be perfect together, both in physical appearance and temperament.) Having said that, don’t forget that “All I Need,” although… Read more »

Jack Wagner was screwed over last time so I dont know if he will return until there is a new boss. We all remember that stupid scene where Felicia picked Mac over Felicia and I agree with you, Mac is a better choice but how about them having Frisco bully the BRITCH! I like that he was there for Maxie but it was a little too much! You are so right Casey Kasem about “All I Need” BUT it was THE big hit off the show. “Lady of my Heart” was Felicia’s song from Frisco. And watch it there sweetie,… Read more »

Hey Timmmbo, I actually thought that it was hilarious when Frisco called Britt “Toots” and put her in her place, and that’s from someone who absolutely loved her character….but she was totally out of line with Maxie! At least Mr. Jones didn’t look ineffectual when he was on the warpath with Dr. Westbourne, quite unlike when he beat that hasty retreat after the humiliating outcome to his musical proposal to Felicia, after she chose Mac, the “safe” choice of man, just like the yawn-inducing Tania did with Tony. (Having said that, I do see a certain physical likeness between Hayden… Read more »

Me too! But I believe their sons are their greatest accomplishment. Their love story was a gift to the fans.

Jack & Kristina are magic together, on and off-screen. It’s so great that they have worked out their differences enough that they can work together on When Calls the Heart. I started watching that show because they were on it. They are paired with others on that show. If Jack came back to GH, there would have to be hope for a Frisco/Felicia reunion. But we can be satisfied with just that .. hope. We waited 7 years for Robert&Anna to finally get beyond the “best ex-es” stage, that slow burn was what made it all the more fun when… Read more »

I would love JW back in any format. There is a lot of story for Frisco with Maxie, Anna and lucas (as his brother’s ‘son”) not to mention laura. And he knew Ned and theQ’s for years. If JWand KW wanted to “reunite” that would be perfect but if they did not–Frisco could go with Laura, Olivia, or Diane or any number of already women on GH. It would be funny if he wound up with NINA…and frankly how fellicia, and Mac handled him being in their lives might make them both have more story and be more interesting. O… Read more »

I watched clips of Frisco ‘ s return story in 1989 last night and boy those days were great! The Wsb cluster of characters always saved the day as trusty best friends. The only way to make room for Frisco would be by reestablishing the spy element of the show. Being back a writer from the 80s to the present writing team. Bring Frisco back

If only GH would get Sri Rao as head writer! He loves and respects the ’80s era (not only had a great story for Robert&Anna on Night Shift 2, he brought in Sean & Tiffany for a dream sequence!) I know he would do a bang-up job of writing for Frisco and Felicia.

I just want to see Frisco and Robert onscreen together again for the first time in 25 years. The timing has never been right for my wish to be granted in these last four years as Robert left just as Frisco returned and then Robert returned after Frisco left. The witty sarcastic banter between those two mixed in with real brotherly feelings was so enjoyable. I challenge anyone to watch old clips of Robert and Frisco in scenes together and you will see why I need to see them together again on GH.

agree with you and maybe they can bring Allan and Emily back. Maybe Halina had them captive on a second hidden island.

I wish that they would bring back Kristina and Mac. It would also be nice to have Jack Wagner stop by.

Frisco and Felicia were the first super couple that I absolutely fell head over heels for and rooted for to be together. I was only a little girl at the time, but I loved, loved, loved Frisco and Felicia. I remember Frisco singing “Lady of my Heart” and “All I Need” to Felicia. Those were the days, when daytime was full of adventure and romance. I was devastated when Jack Wagner first left the show! I also thought, and still do, that Kristina was absolutely beautiful, stunning, and I would love to see her on-screen more often.

Frisco HAS to come back at some point! Ron C ruined the character when he came back for the 50th Anniversary and they need to redeem him. JW was really ticked how they wrote Frisco’s short arc back and they owe it to him, the character and the fans to fix it. I was forced into watching GH as a kid by my family and Frisco is the reason I got addicted. My favorite character of all time. There are so many ways they could bring him back and redeem him. Starting with how he isnt a dead beat Dad,… Read more »

It would be the best news ever if Frisco returned to Port Charles. Of course, they would have to do a much better job than his last return (which ended horribly). His return would mean more Felicia and the chance to have scenes with Maxie, Robert and Anna. As Ryan states above, Frisco Jones is my favorite character of all time, so bring him back and bring justice back to the character!!!
