In a heartfelt tweet early AM Monday, Jack Wagner (Ex-Frisco, GH, Ex-Nick, B&B) who has been very public about his struggles with addiction and alcohol over the years, sent out an important tweet to his followers sharing his fear and his concerns for his 21-year-old younget son, Harrison.

In a update two hours ago, Wagner tweeted that his son has indeed been in contact! That is good news.  Jack shared to all: “Harrisons been in touch, he’s 21 & in charge of his life, ty for the lv & prayers, please continue to share your struggles, it helps us all.”

The talented actor/singer, who has been most recenly starring in the Hallmark Channel series, When Calls The Heart and former wife, Kristina Wagner (Felicia, GH) are Harrison’s parents. In his initial post, Wagner began:  “I’m going to ask those who want to share their fears, addictions & struggles to do so w me via Twitter. We can face them 2gether, I’ll start.  I fear for my youngest sons safety. Harrison has struggled w drugs & alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He’s relapsed & is MIA 5days.”

Following that personal family news, several followers of Wagner took him up on his statement and reached out to them with their current fears and struggles with addiction, and in a very heart-warming way, Jack has been responding to each with a personal tweet back.

Out thoughts are with Jack. Kristina and Harrison at this time, and we hope for all concerned this comes to a safe conclusion shortly during this family crisis.

I had a brother who was drug addict, my parents did nothing when he stole from them One day he came to my house and stole while we were out with our kids. Well I decided to do something because I did not want to get a call at 3 am saying they found my brother. So I told him he returns everything and he had till Monday to get in a rehab or I was pressing charges, a lot was exchanged between us but in the end I told him I would do it because I love him and… Read more »

Jack & Kristina, my prayers are with you & your family. My daughter relapsed about a month ago. She is getting back on track, thank God. She has a one year old son, and I actually took him to a motel for three days so that she and the horrible, violent man she was hanging out with couldn’t find us. I thank God my daughter is safe, and will pray that your son will be, too.

My dear college friend lost her oldest son to addiction, drugs and depression. My former son-in-law has been battling his demons of addiction, anxiety and depression for the past almost 5 years. Sadly it cost him his wife and son and the family they could’ve built together. He tries desperately to get better but has not yet met with success. Thankfully he is currently in a long term care facility and as always we pray for the best outcome possible for him and for my grandson. My heart hurts to see such struggle and pain. I will be holding you,… Read more »

His son probably got in touch with him and told him to stop putting his personal biz on blast.

I guess I am the only person who thinks that Jack posting his son’s troubles on Twitter for the whole world to know is a huge invasion of privacy. I understand that celebrities like to live their lives online but his son may not feel that way. Regardless of his issues, he has a right to privacy. I would be appalled if my family member broadcast my problems for the world to know.

Totally Agree!
JW says “he’s 21 & in charge of his life” but spreads his business everywhere. Sad for Harrison.

I certainly can understand what you are saying, tatiana. Our privacy should be respected. But, it could be that Jack acted out of desperation. As a mother, I do feel that he probably felt the NEED to find his son no matter what. Better safe than sorry; pardon the cliche’. Perhaps, the public, being made aware of his sons ‘issues’ with drugs was the incentive to draw him out. We do not know. For a parent who is in that helpless position, he probably thought, “Privacy be damned”. One’s child never stops being one’s child, regardless his/her age. Just my… Read more »

Jack probably did this out of desperation/public intervention. Whatever saves the kids life.

Hi, tatiana. I can certainly appreciate your sentiment. Our privacy should be respected. At the same time, as a mother, I can also understand that Jack may have acted out of desperation. We, as parents, lose sight of what’s right or wrong…..or, what’s proper, when our children’s safety is at stake. Jack, I am sure, felt the need to find his son; better safe than sorry…..pardon the cliche’. Perhaps, making it public was the incentive to draw his son out to prevent a tragedy. All that matters is that he has been found. We do not know the details. One… Read more »

Another opinion that someone suggested was that his son’s disappearance and/or addiction issues were going to be reported by the paparazzi so the Wagners were trying to get ahead of it. Either way, I could never live with this complete lack of privacy.

I am so sorry, but my first post was not going through and when it disappeared, I had to improvise with another.
Forgive me for boring you guys with my double unintentional post.

You are so right, tatiana. I couldn’t either. But, lack of privacy for these celebrities goes with the territory. It’s a damned if you do and damned if you don’t kind of life.

His intentions was to help others and reach out to his son.He was worried about his son.He probably texted and called first and got no response so he used social media since his son is on twitter.

Better Days Ahead!! Stop slamming Jack and Kristina for sharing since this was important to them. Support and encouragement when in crisis helps to get through it easier. They love their son and it is great to be willing to share and not be ashamed. We all struggle with different issues in this life and it is a sign of strength to come forward and speak public about it! We are all one family in God’s eyes so Love and Peace please prevail…May Harrison and all struggling addicts find comfort and solace…Amen

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
