Things will be heating up in the coming weeks as Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) amps up her game plan against Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to win the affections again of Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)!  And even as recent as the fourth of July, Britt found a way to get some reminiscing time with the Prince! But just who will end up the victor?

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with one of our favorite gents, Tyler Christopher on the red carpet at the recent 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards for a video interview where we had the chance to ask him a few select questions.

We asked Tyler: who he thinks Nikolas should end up with romantically, what does he think of his scenes with on-screen son, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), and if he would like more Cassadines to be resurrected and return to Port Charles and more! Here’s what Tyler had to say, then watch the video of our conversation following it!

So, who do you want Nikolas to end up with?  Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) … or someone else perhaps we don’t even know about?

TYLER:  Oh, you’re not going to get me to play favorites!  They have both worked on-screen and that’s what we hope for.  You basically have a 50/50 split with the fans.   Half of them want Elizabeth … and half of them want Britt.  So, we have done our job in that regard.

What has it been like working with Nicholas Bechtel as your on-screen son, Spencer Cassadine?  The two of you are hilarious together … you must have fun with him?

TYLER:  Oh, my God.  We totally have fun.  Our take with each other is: he does not treat me like a grumpy old dad, and I don’t treat him like a nine-year-old kid.  We talk to each other on the same level.  I don’t know if that means he’s really mature, or I’m like a child… I don’t know what that means.  (Laughs)

Do you want to have more Cassadines come back to GH?

Courtesy/Twitter

TYLER:  I do!  I have always lobbied for more Cassadines to come back on the show.  Unfortunately, we did our diligence in killing them off quite hastily… and making sure they were dead, after they were already dead!  But if the team wants to bring them back, I am all for it.

Are you enjoying your time back at GH?  When you were on the soap previously, you were carrying a lot of story.  Is it different for you this time, because the way they do the show now, and tell story, where it’s more spread out among the characters on the canvas?

TYLER:  It is!  It’s a lot of work in a short amount of time, but it was always like that, but more so now then ever.  But you do get a welcome break every once in a while were they do focus on different areas of the show.  It all works out, and everyone is happy, and we are doing better than ever.

Watch our red carpet video interview from the Daytime Emmys with Tyler below! Then weigh-in!  Are you rooting for Nik and Liz … or, Nik and Britt?   Do you enjoy the Spencer/Nikolas scenes?  And, would you like to see more Cassadines return … or new ones come out of the woodwork to stir things up in Port Charles?

I would rather have the Cassadine’s back in full force than the Q’s..

Too bad the previous writers decided to kill off the some of the awesome Cassadine’s..

I hope FV can get as many of the Cassadine’s back as possible..

(the Q’s never really excited me, so I’d push for the Cassadine’s)

You’d like the Qs just as much as the Cassidines had not past and present writers had detroyed them over the years by killing off several and putting the others in lame storylines like Pickle Relish, dumbdowning Tracy and using Monica as if she was a background prop…the Qs were fun and exciting to watch…somehow i feel you would have loved the plotline when Alan Q plotted to kill Monica and her lover Rick Webber…lol

I’m with you, JIm, all for more Qs. It was great seeing Monica back on the show this week.

SU00, it’s clear you are not a GH fan despite your protestations. I think you’ve been watching GH for about two minutes and know nothing about its history or what it’s really about. Your comments are inane and irrelevant and while I used to find your willful obtuseness and condescension amusing, I no longer do considering the GH that I know and love bears no semblance to its former self.

how many cassadines do we need? i know nicholas and little spencer and now victor are the only ones carrying the last name, but alexis, molly and sam are also cassadines. and we all know nathan will be revealed to be victor son so lets not get greedy here Tyler, you have plenty of family around. i don’t mind Helena coming back, but keep starvos frozen pleaaase, he’s a total waste of villian time.

Actually, I really like Stavros. Well, I mean, I love to hate him because he’s a villain. I think Robert Kelker Kelley is a great actor and he is so amazingly creepy in the role, his return last year and scenes with Luke and Laura were fantastic!

The thing is, Cassadines are typically though of to be villains, but there isn’t a single villain Cassadine on the show right now, aside from sporadic appearances by Victor. Alexis, Sam and Molly are really only Cassadines in name – they’re very distanced from the core of the family.

Helena, Stavros and Stefan are the real villain Cassadines, and while I don’t think having them all on screen at one time would be a good idea, I’d definitely love for one of them to come back!

I agree with u then ! But I don’t think Stephan was a villian he was more of an anti hero, a list soul ! I would really like to see valantine cassadine though .

I agree with you plus Alexis’s other daughter Kristina is also a Cassidine…cast is bloated anyway!!!

Too bad it’s become bloated with some pretty useless characters.

Oh god could you imagine Helena and Spencer sharing scenes together? A match made in hell. I love it! It’s about time Helena came back. But I understand Constance Towers is 81 and probably doesn’t want to be back on for an extended stay.. Maybe a recast?

Someone mentioned Louise Sorrel might be nuHelene and it would be a hoot to see Helene in scenes with Spenser and i can see Helene grooming him to become an evil Cassidine but GH seriously needs to trim its oversized cast first!!!

Love Nikolas & Elizabeth & hope they finally get a real shot at romance. I would love to see the Cassadines come back and by that I mean established characters not new made up ones. I wouldn’t mind seeing Helena rise from the dead to make an appearance but I would love Stefan even more. I think the little guy who plays Spencer is adorable but I hate the way all the kids have been turned into brats and honestly would like to see less of them not more definitely. I hate that they have ruined Spencer & Cams friendship for a silly love triangle. I would rather see the kids friends now, save rivalries for when they reach their teenage years.

Spenser and Cam shouldve started out as friends and written like Kids and then in the next few years become bitter rivals for the affections of a now teen Emma with Josslyn thrown into the mix…lol

I totally agree… with his response

that it’s fan split… 50/50

either or with Nicholas… Britt or Liz

be that as it may: I really like Liz with Ric

Nicholas has smoldered with Britt
and Britt with

why not have 2 couples in the know…. to work with easy

I love these two pair

GH production simply have to write mystery and mayhem for the two pair.. that sizzle

Liz and Ric
Britt and Nicholas

have them form a friendship… and something down the road tears them apart… ensnares… rips up

fan pull… want those magic couples

I applaud the chemistry with Britt and Nicholas

gosh darned it. if Britt and Nicholas can’t have Ben
then they can share Spence

it’s just complete to me

i want to clarify :

this is Liz’ own story… with the further development with Ric Lansing

not for her to intrude on Nicholas… as the past… with his 1/2 brother Lucky… is just that… Nicholas stepped aside…

and it’s where it belongs

now… if something drastic where to happen to Britt… and I doubt that very much
he belongs with Britt

let Liz heart soar

the chemistry with Ric… her equal… for cast sizzle… is where these two belong…

I mean that about Liz and Ric

The only real split is within Liz’s fanbase that want someone other than Nik, and haters that hate Liz and root for Britt because of that agenda. She has no real fanbase of her own, it’s a game. Niz has waaay more fans. Just check out twitter or fan sites. It’s obvious.

This triangular situation with Nik has been going on for Liz fans for nearly five years with 7 triangles can she get moved around the canvas in other stories? I’d like to see her interact with Silas and some of the other characters in other storylines besides cajones it was refreshing to see her with Ric and AJ but again cajones storyline

NiZ fans have waited patiently for her and Nik to get together. How much longer, do we have to wait… Please resolve this so we can get off the ropes.

Exactly. If Niz don’t get a shot, and I have to see that cartoon Brit with Nik again? I’m tuning OUT of GH. Their ratings have already dipped the last few weeks since Liz disappeared again and Brit is making a fool of Nik. And Nina is eating the show…if it keeps up the show will continue declining.

I’d love to see Stephan back. He and Nicolas were great together…and he had that old world charm…that villainous yet debonair thing. He could bring back some of the Cassadine mystique/glamour…but not sure how they’d make it as intriguing without Luke, Laura and that whole intertwined dynamic.

I love Tyler…and I love Nicolas Cassadine. But he’s just a very rich guy living in a creepy mansion…the legendary terror of the C’s are gone…

“…you do get a welcome break every once in a while were they do focus on different areas of the show. It all works out, and everyone is happy, and we are doing better than ever.”

kudos! Cheers! I agree! GH for all it’s intent and purpose… has prevailed.. and echelon it’s worth

Fans couldn’t be happier

thank you Tyler Christopher… for your being a part

LOL

he’s so handsome… even in those glasses… as he’s being interviewed by MF

I will not traverse any further in to :

Nicholas
Patrick
Dante

husband material

’nuff said

I believe Nikolas and Elizabeth where meant for each other along time ago. They make each other complete in every way.I so want to see their Love Story played .It would be beautiful. As for more Cassadines. Bring them.Stafan,Stavros and Helena. But then you need to find away to bring Robert Scorpio back. He and Luke where the awesomeness that brought the family to their knee’s. Now that was EPIC. Ron and Frank show me you can work this!!!!!

I like Niz now but I don’t believe they were always meant for each other. His soulmate will always be Emily, IMO.

I don’t agree about Emily.But it’s jmo. I believe she was his first true love Like Lucky was for Liz. But at some point we have to put them in their place and move on.I was never much an Emily ff. I liked Amber but not the older replacement.

You should have asked him about having his mother back. That is what GH needs more than anything

Agree 100%!!

To start I would love to see the Cassadines and would love to see the Cassadine come out in Nikolas… It does with Liz…

Second, it is not that I don’t like KT… I didn’t really find her a strong actress but she has grown. I am not a Britt fan but I was at first… However, when they put her with Nikolas it destory what I liked about her. The I’m a B and I own it… Even with the return of Britch she is still whining to Mommy and blaming others…

I do think the story with Britt manipulating Spencer could be very strong and real but only if it is written very raw. No white wash or glazing… but I highly doubt we will see that. To bad that is not onky a story needing to be written but written well and would have been strong for all involved.

No I don’t think Nikolas belong with Britt. I think both are good actors but together they date each other. He makes her come off as a teenager and she makes him seem old… It is not their looks it is their characters.

Liz and Nik I had very high hopes for them. They have amazing chemistry and potential for real conflict. They have history and potential for maybe one of the strongest built love stories in soaps. However, RC keeps pulling them into stupid triangles… That make no since anymore…

I would love to see Nik and Liz really have a chance but if not move them both on. Give thembboth stories and pairings. Liz with Rick and Nik with someone knew he really only fit’s with Liz right now… He could work with Robin… They could test him with Olivia.

I do think her manipulation of Spencer has a strong possibilty as a story but only if RC and FV are willing to really hit it hard… No white washing, no glazing overvthe hard stuff… I do notb trust they will so they should not have did that scene. I will say it would have been a strong story for Britt and Spencer and Nikolas.

Me thinks you give Britt too much credit for being able to charm Spencer into doing her bidding with Nic….yes, she is the adult this equation, but Little Mister Cassadine, despite his pint-sized stature, is already a master manipulator all by his lonesome. He doesn’t want “Niz” to happen either…as it would mean his major nemesis, Cameron, could possibly become his step-brother! Plus, he actually loves Britt and has a bond with her….can’t blame the kid for wanting her back in his father’s life!

I should add the story of the manipulation might not be a pretty one but showing a real out come of an adult using their love and influence over a child creating a conflict between them and their parents is a strong story… But not s love story and should be hanbled with kit gloves. Yet still should have a real bb and serious out come.

It is sad such a serious subject is being used as a pp to put Nikolas and Britt back together. Or even whyvhe might belong with Liz. This is a subjectvyhat shoild be it’s own story with as many children being manipulated and the exploit ed in todays world… But it starts with manioulation… So even though the story would not be leading to an intentional harm by the adult in this story. It needs to show any manipulation of the love of a child is not only harmful but can be dangerous.

want Laura back

Anyone besides Liz works for me with Nikolas

I agree about the rivalries – Michael & Morgan now have a giant fracture in their relationship along with real love. This can make for years of story because we will ultimately root for both; same with Lucky & Nicholas. Cam & Spencer are being made to be enemies, a story that will eventually grow old and predictable.

I too would love scenes with Helene and Spenser and less of that silly kiddie love triangle…let kids be kids…on Coronation Street characters killed off stay dead and children act like real children…im so spoiled by that soap i want ours written more that way but im dreamin…anyway there are enough Cassidines in Port Chuck…bring back Victor full time after Nathan is revealed to be his son…

Elizabeth and Nikolas have so much history together and way more chemistry then Nick and Britt have. They have danced around each other for years and with each other for years. I remember way back in 1999 when Nikolas took Elizabeth to the nurses ball. I wanted them as a couple then and I still want them as a couple. More Cassadines we need more of our long time family is restored. as for young Spencer I think the actor that plays him is wonderful but I don’t like the way the writing the character and I think having Britt manipulate a child is just wrong that’s what abusers do.

Niz sucks! Nick and Britt part II. Recast Helena and brink back Starvos.

I’d like to see Helena and Stefan come back. I like Victor, particularly if he turns out to be Nathan’s father and Liesl’s lover.

I want to see Nicholas with Britt. With their families, it could be played for humor and so interesting. Liz is pretty, and she is nice, but she is sort of boring.

I am all for Nicholas and Liz!!!

I would very much like to see Stefan return! He’s the best choice, IMO, to give Nikolas a viable storyline outside of his relationship woes.

I’m rooting for Britt to get back with Nicholas.

I like Britt, too. The actress does a great job-you love to hate her; but, she also has a sensitive side and does try to do some good. Love her scenes with Dr. O. Happy to see The Britch back. Elizabeth is sort of like nails on a chalkboard for me. She’s never been my favorite character; though, I appreciate the years that the actress has given the show and that the character is from a core, legacy family.

I adore this interview. Tyler seems like he’s really enjoying his time at GH and I love how he supports the ensemble part of the show, with how stories rotate.

I love him talking about Nicolas, as well. That kid is adorable and so talented for his age. Whenever Nik and Spencer are on screen, I know I’ll be laughing. You wouldn’t think a child, not even 10-years-old could command a screen so well, but with influences like Tyler, it shouldn’t be surprising.

I personally would love Nikolas and Britt to get back together. I have never liked Elizabeth at all. I love Becky Herbst and think she is supremely talented, but I have never been able to root for her character. I love Britt and the journey her character has taken. Kelly Thiebaud really has been a find.

Liz and Nik!!!! Britt is a cartoon newbie with no real fanbase. And the actress is terrible with no chemistry with TC, and I don’t believe for a second it’s a fifty/fifty split with fans! He’s just being nice.

How I wish more then anything that Stefan would come back played by the great Stephen Nichols ONLY. What an incredible character he was, and Stephen’s interpretation of Stefan kept me glued to the screen. He wasn’t an out right villain like Helena and Stavros, but a layered, complicated, and torn man. He was so sexy and dynamic. The relationship he had with Nikolas was so loving and loyal, though Stefan didn’t always do things by the book which sometimes caused complications. Still, Stefan would have died for Nikolas. More then anything I would love to see Stefan/Stephen come back. One thing is for sure, if they do ever bring him back, don’t make the mistake of writing him like the previous regime did towards the end. Stefan was not some campy bad guy villain. Just watch the YouTube videos of the Cassadines from 96 to the late nineties. I loved that time…they just don’t write like that anymore. Those are the Cassadines I miss.

The show seems pretty pack filled already with nasty villains — and anti heros— even if Helena came back who is she going to torment— Luke again? Maybe Lulu? Unfortunately sometimes characters just run their course and no matter how much we loved them bringing them back will not necessary recapture past glory. If they can come up with a different angle, then I wouldn’t mind seeing the Cassadines return, but if it will more of the same, I’m not sure if I’m up for another round of super villains in Port Charles when there are plenty of bad guys cluttering up the screen already.

Great interview. TC is a class act and seems a bit mischievous(in a good way). So glad he’s returned to GH.

Count me in for another Cassadine appearing. My choice would be the amazing S.Nichols. Stefan is sorely missed and Nik could use his “dad” figure. Though I wouldn’t mind his mom returning as well. Could be interesting to see Laura & Stefan reunite again.

I am 100% on board for Prince Nik and Elizabeth love story. So much story potential. BH and TC have smoldering chemistry. NIZ are organic, flirty, passionate and fun. A foundation of decade + friendship and complicated history. I want to see them fully explored. They light up the screen. Hopefully RC/NV will do them justice.

It’s refreshing to have the original actors playing the roles of Liz and Nik all these years later with so many new characters most fans have no investment in. Overall i agree with TC that the show is more ensemble than even 4 years ago and that’s a good thing, but I miss the development of characters. I miss the friendships, family scenes and romance and angst with couples.

Thanks MF.

I AGREE! I miss the friendships and core family characters. I loved the Brenda, Lois, and Ned friendship. I miss Luke’s Blue’s Club. Mac’s Outback, etc. etc.

I like Liz with both Nik and Rick. I don’t like Britt with Nik though. I did like Britt with Patrick. I do like Liz and Britt in scenes together. I wish they could be friends.

I’ve been asking for more Cassadines since I don’t know when. It’s time to bring some back, and do another huge story. How do you phase them out with good reason?

Love Nicolas and Tyler as Spencer/Nikolas. They have the sweetest, funniest father/son relationship I’ve see on soaps in a long time. GH casting did a great job in finding the perfect child to play the lil prince.

I’m a huge Britta fan, so I want her back with her man asap. I truly adored their scenes during the Independence Day celebration. 😉

I miss the Quartermaines. I miss the Cassadines. I wish that the writers would honor and respect the history of General Hospital more. Instead, precious air-time is wasted on Levi, the ridiculous “love” triangle of Michael, Kiki, and Morgan-which has no heat or spark. Talk about boring and a waste of the viewer’s time. Kristen Alderson can hardly carry a believable scene, never mind a front burner story or love triangle. I cringed when she found out Rafe was brain dead. Please just do away with the character, as well as, the on-slaught of recurring characters. With so many characters and storylines, I forget where each story left off, only to be picked up again a week plus or more.

Why does GH thinks it’s cute to involve little children in a love triangle that deals with lies, deception and obsession? It’s annoying and a waste of air time. I guess by next year those kids will become victims of SORAS.

Lizzy, they might as well invite Barney, the purple dinosaur in for yet another idiotic stunt casting device. No wonder dumb dumbs like SU00 like GH now.
Really–lets bring back long time viewers who have stopped watching all together. There are a lot of us and ratings will start to reflect that.

Nikolas and Britt is the more interesting pairing. I really enjoy them together and the dynamic Britt brings to Nik. I’m sorry but Liz is a bore and she in turn makes Nikolas a bore. I love that Britt is complicated and damaged and not a goody two shoes. Nik and Liz are just friend zone, that’s the only vibe that really comes through with them now.

Ive always thought Joan Collins would make a killer Helena! She’d bring sexy back

So true, Allen Saint James! I love Joan Collins….she is an absolute legend and femme fatale supreme. But I think she may have soured on daytime after her last brush with the soaps stateside didn’t work so well. She is more in her prime when in primetime! Would love to see her do a stint on “Downton Abbey!”

As a relatively new viewer, I have to say that Elizabeth is the woman for Nikolas.

I’ve been watching old clips of their affair and they blew me away. So much history there and built in angst, the story should write itself.
I have to say that Tyler does such a great job with his facial expressions without being OTT. Great actor and he has a new fan in me.

Bring back the Cassadines? Who started this idiotic demand? It smacks of propaganda. Listen, the Cassadines have always existed in the shadows, coming in and out when the story line dictated it. Yes, I would love Stefan to come back to but the collective query singing from the rafters should be, BRING BACK THE QUARTERMAINES!
Good Lord, they were the mainstay characters of GH forever–the upper class sector which comingled with the working class sector as seen with the Kellys. or the white collar class as seen with the Baldwins and the Hardys. The Cassadines exist on the fringes of Port Charles society and were originally brought in to provide conflict for Luke and Laura.
I think the people who started this irrelevant and really silly demand that the Cassadines be brought back are merely deflecting from the main issue at hand–bring back the Quartmermaines and cut out the rift raft–that means all the little tots, Sabrina, Ava, Nina, the person taking care of Nina, Franco, Silas, the Donna Mills character, Shawn and so many more people. Do that and people like me will come back. I think the first answer is to fire Ron and Frank as they have ruined this show.

I just want better writing.

I want better writing too. I was a huge Nikolas and Britt fan, but the writing they have been getting has made me lose interest. I have always found Elizabeth and Nikolas boring together, so although the writing for them is not great either don’t really care. It would be nice when this triangle finally ends.

Don’t care about more Cassadines coming on the show. I think the show has enough villains already.

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

Photo: ABC

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

What do you think about Anita’s account of Johnny dying in her arms after shielding her from the thieves who were trying to steal his catalytic converter in his car? Her remembrances of the man she became friends and co-workers with? Comment below.

LAPD Continue to Seek Johnny Wactor’s Killers Who Remain At Large; Asks Public for Tips and Leads

The Los Angeles police department is ramping up its search for to the whereabouts of the three thieves, who got away after one fatally shot former General Hospital cast member, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) in the early morning hours of Saturday, May 26th in downtown Los Angeles.

Law enforcement sources told the LA Times that police are trying to pull fingerprints from Wactor’s vehicle and are looking for video from the area. They also are checking to see whether there are any connections to other nearby catalytic converter thefts.

The thieves were attempting to steal the catalytic converter from Wactor’s car at the time of his death. Sadly, the LAPD investigators shared they have seen an uptick in violence when these types of thieves are confronted.

Catalytic converters contain precious metals in which thieves can make hundreds of dollars selling them to auto parts suppliers or scrap yards, where they can be melted down and the valuable metals extracted.
