Jack Wagner Talks On His GH Return! Will He Sing At The Nurses' Ball?

On today’s Access Hollywood Live, General Hospital returnee and fan favorite Jack Wagner (Frisco) discussed with hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover his return to the iconic soap to honor the series upcoming 50th Anniversary!  During the chitchat, Wagner revealed why he decided to come back, how it was to work with his former wife, Kristina Wagner  (Felicia) again, and if he would sing at the upcoming Nurses’ Ball!

Jack related if he had a major hand in crafting story for Frisco’s return, “Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) is just so collaborative which is just so huge for an actor. And that was a huge green light for me.  It was no brainer.  I think so many of the core characters have come back for this 50th anniversary and myself included just to honor this show- for starting our careers.  It did start my career for sure, and then the music career, and all of it, and so it’s really important for me to come back to General Hospital and make this special.”

When discussing the shows upcoming 50th anniversary, Wagner also said he may be part of the Nurses’ Ball, “It’s all going to culminate for the Nurses’ Ball, and so we will see if I stick around to sing, and it looks like that could happen. I hope it does!”

Of course, Kit and Billy wanted to know if it was strange for Jack working with his ex-wife Kristina after all these years, to which Jack answered, “It was a little uncomfortable at the beginning, but really has come together nicely, and we had some pretty emotional scenes.”

Now watch Jack on the Access Hollywood Live segment after the jump! Then let us know if you hope Jack sings at the Nurses’ Ball, and if Felicia and Frisco should end up back together? Or, should the duo say their goodbyes once and for all?

Seems like such a genuine nice guy! Always liked Jack and I admire how much he aprpeciates his daytime start. Would love for him to stick around longer. It’s kind of a tease to bring him on short-term.

I read Jacks visit to GH is short term but i dont know if Kristinas is too. So if Kristina stays, then Felicia and Frisco should part as friends, and she stays with Mac. But if Kristina will also leave eventually, then i can see Felicia reuniting with her first true love Frisco. This would really depend which actors remain with the show. In any case, id be fine with either way.

p.s. Jack should sing Some day my Prince will come at the nurses ball when Patrick sees Sabrina for the first time after her Cinderella makeover. (Lucy and Felix will come to the rescue after Maxi destroys Sabrinas original gown under Brittanys blackmail orders). This is how id like it all turn out.

One more thing. Brittany will be the green eyed monster when she sees Patrick and Sabrina waltz along the dance floor. At the stroke of midnight Patrick and Sabrina kiss for the first time. its how i wish the writers would do it.

It is so wonderful to see Jack and Kristina sharing scenes together again, I’m so glad they are on good terms, this is such a gift to the fans! Frisco&Felicia really had something special. Frisco’s serenading Felicia played a big part in that. So yes, of course I want to hear Frisco sing! And, although I love Mac, I would love to watch Frisco&Felicia fall in love all over again. It’s the way it should be. Mac & Alexis would be a cute couple.

I always liked Mac and Alexis. I don’t like Alexis with Shawn for some reason. He seems too young for her and too weak an actor to play up against a dynamo like Nancy Lee.

It’s great to have Jack Wagner back as Frisco, even for a short time, but if Felicia breaks Mac’s heart a third time (once for Frisco and once for Luke), she can disappear forever for all I care. If she leaves with Frisco and abandons Maxie once again, too, that’s it!! I used to love Felicia until she did these horrible things, but she has made up for them with Mac and Maxie. I hope Frank and Ron don’t write Felicia to repeat her mistakes. Felicia should realize that Frisco is her past and move on. Her place now is… Read more »

Felicia was never that type of character, i think her character was assasinated under Phelps and Guza, they basically wrote her as this cheating wife and a mother who abandon her kids, and this was never how Felicia was, but every regime either stays true to the character or they destroy it like phelps and guza did.

Joel
Guest
Joel

You are exactly right! Felicia was never this type of woman, and I was really pissed at Guza and Phelps for writing her like a cheating wife and deadbeat mother. It made absolutely no sense because she used to fawn over Maxie and Georgie when they were little. She never would’ve left them alone or jumped from man to man. Since Ron and Frank have decided to redeem her, they need to keep it that way!

Thank You Joel! Mac is undervalued… underappreciated…. for all the soap history… whether they abide by it or not…. MAC… in my mind… all that he’s done for Robin and Maxie…. ie: the good guy, this is the one that needs to finish first…. !!!! Plus for a guy who’s, middle aged… or what have you… he looks good… what man or woman wouldn’t appreciate all that MAC…. LOL. ————— it’s a treat to see currently… Mac and Felicia… commisserating over Maxie…. it’s like they’re behind the scenes in love and hidden for no reason…. they’re both endearing enough to… Read more »

I completely agree with you about Mac. I was disappointed that Ron and Frank simply stripped him of his police commissioner badge and gave it to Anna because it lessened Mac’s importance as a character. I love Anna too, and I understand if Finola Hughes was being given a contract that they had to give Anna a crime-fighting job, but why not keep Mac on the police force as her co-commissioner or whatever you call it. Mac has needed a front-burner storyline for a while now, and even though this one is about holding onto Felicia, I hope it’s done… Read more »

Hey people JFP hates women look what she did to Laura also I doubt if Felicia & Frisco ride off in the sunset but let’s at least ride it out but if you are going to keep Felicia let’s show her and Mac more then once every two weeks.

It’s wonderful to see Jack Wagner back as Frisco. The magic is still there between these two characters. Frisco and Felicia belong together. Mac was never the one for her. I really think the writers and actors know that. The fans deserve for Frisco and Felicia to have their happy ending. TPTB know the history and can now fix what the previous writers had made the characters to be. I for one am so excited to watch the dynamic that is about to unfold.

She sure did. I loved it when Frisco called out Felecia’s name at the HS, she was so startled, she spilled her drink. Just Frisco’s prescence has Felecia rattled…Felecia needs to stop trying so hard with Mac, and be with the man she truly loves..Frisco.

haha, Loved when Felicia spilled her drink. Yeah… amazing true love is hard to beat, unfortunately Mac takes a bit of a backseat. Also loving the Frisco/Maxie dynamic 🙂 I hope Jack Wagner gets to stick around!

I started watching GH because of Frisco & Felicia…they were the IT couple for me. This is a big deal. I remember when Jack came back briefly during the BJ/Maxie storyline and that to me, was the epitome of the greatness of GH. I agree that the character of Felicia was horribly written and then Kristina got less & less air time. I still get angry that Phelps okayed the murder of Georgie! When I think to how Felicia was acting and then they actually have a texting murderer kill Georgie, my love and loyalty to GH was strained beyond… Read more »

your so right, i just can’t imagine any of this taking place under Phelps, she probably would of done nothing to celebrate Gh’s 50th anniversary, and theres no way in hell we would of seen this many comebacks under her regime.

So happy to have him back on GH!!! Loved Frisco and Felicia in the day!!! Really hoping that now they can work on their relationship… but one of parents first and deal with Maxie… then work on a friendship that is realistic… if he is not staying around and let Felicia and Mac evolve more. Work out the relationship between Frisco and Mac. Let him fight for her… but let her decide to stay with Mac! Let there be some real work with both of them and Maxie so she grows and gets past some of her baggage due to… Read more »

Glad he is back,I am glad they are all back but you can’t have a Nurses’ Ball without Robin,come back Robin, then the show will be complete.

I have a feeling that the Nurse’s Ball is when Robin will return. But that is just my guess.

Robin and Robert both are supposed to come back for the Nurses Ball

I am super excited that Frisco is back. I want Frisco and Felecia to reunite, but first he needs to amend fences with Maxie.. Maxie needs to know that he loves her and that he regrets being absent from her life when she was growing up, that he wants to be there for her Now. I do love Mac, but I just never saw the same chemistry with him as Felecia shared with Frisco.. She loves Mac, but she loves him like a best friend..

What kind of a question is that? OF COURSE Frisco and Felica should get back together ON THE SHOW! Please, please, please tell me that Frisco is staying on the show…………….. and Robert to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope Felicia picks Mac. Then Jack wagner can go do something else. He seems like he likes attention and I think he will end up with a reality show of some sort. I mean he has already been on two already. DWTS and The Apprentice. There was a rumor he wanted a reality show with Heather Locklear too. Go Team Mac.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
