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

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!!!

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.
