Is Jack Wagner Headed Back To General Hospital? Or, Isn't He?

Over the past week, speculation has been all abuzz on the internet that Jack Wagner was coming back to work at General Hospital to reprise his role as Frisco Jones, although it was never confirmed.

Today at TVGuide.com, in a item touting Wagner’s upcoming appearance on the hit ABC series, Castle starring former OLTL star, Nathan Fillion on January 7th,  it appears that Wagner has revealed he has not been asked to return to the lone ABC daytime soap in quite some time!

The popular Wagner revealed, “There was a call in February when I’d committed to Dancing With the Stars and wasn’t able to go back, and since then there’s been nothing. General Hospital is always dear to my heart and I’m really happy Kristina’s  (Felicia) back. She still looks so beautiful. Kristina and I haven’t talked about it, but I have a feeling if I went back that would probably garner just a little bit of attention.”

Jack Wagner also apparently declined The Bold and the Beautiful’s recent invite to return as Nick Marone for Stephanie’s teary farewell party episodes!

So soapers, would you like to see Jack back as Frisco in Port Charles? If so, how would you write him into the story, so it makes sense as to what is happening right now?  Weigh-in!

Yes please! Bring him back and also Genie Francis and Kin Shriner too. They don’t have to come home for good (Genie should) but at least to create some conflict for the other characters and help boost the ratings even more.

I wish Jack Wagner would head back to B & B. I sure do miss seeing Nick. Also his son on the show Jack.

Good for you JW for turning down B&B I hope you told them where they could put their invite. I am not sure how he would fit in the canvas on GH but I adore him and would love to see him back.

Yes yes yes Jack needs to come back. There are so many ways Frisco can come back. He can help Robert to get Faison, help save Robin and finally reconcile with Maxie. But of couse most of all he can reunite with his true love Felicia! Its been 18 years too long!

I couldn’t agree with you more. There’s a significant amount of story to tell with many characters whose lives and development Frisco was crucial to. He’s sorely needed.

No offense as much as I loved Frisco and Felicia I would rather see the money spent on bringing Genie Francis back !

Anything with Kristina. Those two wrote soaphistory.
‘Frisco and Felicia 2012 ‘ would be major . Hard to believe they haven’t asked Jack back again, High ratings for sure.

Salimah
Guest

exactly, let’s be honest here. I’d argue that there’s a mandate in place for a Frisco return at this point. And obviously, it’s got to be Frisco & Felicia all the way.

cant blame him for declining B&B after he and the whole Jackie M team were just sent off to soap oblivion without a proper sendoff.

Yes! It would be incredible to have Frisco back on GH working with Anna, Robert and Luke. Give them an adventure to go on! Jack Wagner was an icon from the 80s and GH would be rewarding their loyal fan base with this popular favorites return.

Prefer him on BB. Not so much for GH.

Remember him on the nighttime soap Melrose Place as Dr. Peter Burns. He had great chemistry on that show with both Heather Locklear and Lisa Rinna.

Absolutely. It would finally give Felicia something to do.

Brad

While he was great on BB, GH is where he belongs. BB was extremely disrespectful in their treatment of him and there is no reason why he cannot return to Port Charles – plenty of story to be told for Frisco Jones!

This is making me nervous. I don’t understand why all these people are coming back. It does not seem to end. Personally I do not believe that with the ratings and high audience, ABC will cancel another one. Please let that be true.

heidi
Guest

YES… but if he comes back… let Felicia stay with Mac so she doesn’t hurt him again. It would also have a bad affect on Maxie.

Susan M.

I agree..

emmy

He’s a fictional soapcharacterSo who cares…
All that is important is that we see that Frisco and felicia fireworks again, and exitement and chemistry. People would tune in for that.
the mac and felicia chemistry is non existent in my opinion. Nothing would be lost there.

Chaz

Why? They haven’t utilized Kristina Wagner at all. A ratings burst at his return isn’t worth it if they don’t continue to write for the character after a month.

Well with Jack dating Ashley Jones it might be hard to have Jack and Kristina as a couple on GH!

em
Guest

well if you read the article, and Jack’s thoughts on it ,he would not find it hard at all. Actualy, he sounds exited to work next to Kristina again and I don’t see how AJ would have say in what acting choices he takes. I’m sure she isn’t be that insecure.

Salimah
Guest

Absolutely, bring Jack Wagner back! A Frisco Jones return is long overdue and much desired by Frisco & Felicia fans.

sidebar: I find it curious that people are here commenting on the chemistry he had with actresses from Melrose place. Irrelevant to this discussion. and as for who he’s dating now, well, also irrelevant.
and finally, to the person who thinks Felicia should stay with Mac: I think you know better.

Would like to see Jack Wagner on GH again as Frisco..Haven’t seen him on GH for quite a long time… If he comes back he can sing one of his old tunes or even sing a new one!!!! But Felicia is with Mac now..

A big yes to bringing back Jack! They need to write for him, though. I was a huge Frisco and Felicia fan back in the day and I didn’t like Mac much, but I think I would rather not see F&F as a couple again, tbh. Too much has gone down over the years and they’re a divorced couple IRL now. It would feel like a regression and awkward unless it was handled with great care. Maybe a gradual reunion over time and written to perfection could work. But I would definitely love to see Jack back with Robert &… Read more »

Yes. Absolutely, Definitely bring Frisco back. Gh needs a hero. Robert could put in a call needing Frisco’s back to take down Faison. They were always a good team before. Robert and him could also rescue Robin and bring her home to her husband and daughter, and also to Anna. Frisco could also try to make amends with Maxie, his daughter, and be reunited with his true love, Felecia. I know she is with Mac now, and she says she is happy, but if Frisco returned. I don’t think she could keep her distance from Frisco. Mac saw their undeniable… Read more »

No. Don’t bring him back. Felicia is barely used as it is. And I’d rather him explore a return to The Bold and the Beautiful as Nick Marone!

Christy

well, of course I’d love to have the old Frisco and Felicia, but Felicia and mac are rarely seen now… think if he came back, it would be a short stay. He could be brought back by being on a mission to oh, say, hmm, Switzerland?! :=)

maybe he’s on the tail of Faison, finds Luke in Turkey on his way…. yeah there’s always a way to bring him back.

Mr. Wagner should come back…add a bit of spice to Max and Felicia…right now..they are dullsville..let’s have some real live rivalry..like luke..robert…lavry and Anna…that rocks…even with the old lady cassadine coming back..she is one we love to hate…she holds mystery…love the plot with Tomas/Lorenzo really exciting…bring victor back too…glad AJ and Ned are back…Brooklyn rocks and so does Dillan…looking forward of Jason coming back…give it all you got…more…more…more

Frisco can get back with Felicia, and Mac can get back with Felicia. They’ll have to bring someone else in for Shawn…or how about Sky? I really don’t thnk Shawn/Alexis have the right chemistry (altho they tried with that “quickie” scene. Mac and Felicia are just ok; they would be better with Frisco and Alexis.. Of course, they’ll have to get Frisco involved in some “dirty” business to make it interesting

Would love to see Jack back on GH. He was such a main actor back in the day and GH hasn’t been the same since. Also, a Frisco/Felicia reunion would bring a lot of viewers back. Their chemistry cannot be matched!!

I would love to have Jack back on GH. The concern on this end is, will Frisco want Felicia back or will he have moved on into a new relationship? I love Felicia and Mac, so I really don’t want the writers bothering that at all. If Frisco returns, I would like to see a maturer man involved in a serious relationship with a new woman. A man who is ready to take on the issue of abandoning his children. Maxie is still on the show, so I would like to see Frisco working out the abandonment issues that have… Read more »

It was never revealed who Robert called for help my money says it was Frisco.

Robert called Nikolas Cassadine for help. Robert wanted him to call Helena and lure her to PC, so that Robert could question her.

I still however feel that a Frisco return is inevitable. According to Nelson Branco, the editor of SoapUncensored, sources close to Jack Wagner are saying that he will reprise his role as Frisco pretty soon in the future.

That would be quite easy actually! Especially now a/ Robert almost dead, Duke returning & his daughter Maxie pregnant! Now would be a perfect time! He could present an interesting storyline coming between Felicia & Mac! I would love to see this!

I want to see Jack Wagner SOMEWHERE in prime time television. Back with Bridgit on B and B would be great too, They made such a beautiful couple. I think B and B needs one mainstay couple. Obviously I think it should be Nick and Bridget. B and B seems to be losing its luster. Too many off-beat characters, too many stupid episodes with Liam, Steffy and Hope. Enough! Need a few happy endings here. Looks like Taylor will be leaving, too? Wht’s happening here? Will Eric be leaving, too? And Donna? Tired of seeing her long, unhappy face all… Read more »

Kelly Thiebaud Departing General Hospital and Heading Back to ‘Station 19’

Kelly Thiebaud is now set to reprise her role of Eva Vasquez, on ABC’s primetime drama, Station 19 and thus the Daytime Emmy winner will exit her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne on General Hospital.

According to Deadline, Thiebaud will be part of the cast for the series 6th season, which premieres on October 6th.

Previously, Kelly appeared on the show’s 3rd season when in story, as the widow of firefighter Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez), she had an affair with her husband’s colleague Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) that resulted in total chaos.

In a tease for Thiebaud’s return, ABC shared, “Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past.”

Kelly has played GH’s Britt on and off since 2012. She won her first Daytime Emmy this past June for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

Look for Kelly to exit her GH role in November, while a rep for the soap shared that the actress will be leaving by year’s end.

What do you think of Kelly going to Station 19 and departing General Hospital? How do you think GH will deal with her exit? Will tragedy befall Britt with her living with Huntington’s Disease? Will she be written-off the canvas, leaving the door open for her return? 

Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out our conversation with Kelly from a year ago and then backstage at the Daytime Emmys following her victory,

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.
