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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
