Fans have less than two weeks to wait for the return on-air of fan favorite Jack Wagner in his iconic role as Frisco Jones on General Hospital!  After secretly taping a report handful of episodes (however this could turn out to be scenes spread out over several months leading up to GH’s big 5oth Anniversary in April) Wagner was back on the GH set around January 11th.

Now according to Access Hollywood, Wagner’s first appearance on his return to the ABC soap is slated for the Monday, February 4th episode! And as it turns out that is just one week before Genie Francis return to the show in her iconic role of Laura Spencer on Monday, February 11th.

Kristina Wagner, who plays Felicia Jones Scorpio, Frisco’s ex, and Wagner’s ex in real life returned to the soap last year and will obviously be key in scenes with Jack on his return to Port Charles!

Access Hollywood also noted, “Bringing Jack and Genie back will only help make General Hospital’s 50th anniversary, on April 1, that much bigger of an affair. (Genie’s return date is exactly 50 days before the 50th anniversary.)”

So soapers, are you excited that Frisco is coming home shortly to your television screens? Let us know!

wouldn’t that be INTERESTING?

i think so…. why not? two characters of old… that we’re comfortable with…

Mac… the good guy/former police commissioner… all that he’s done for Robin and Maxie…. raised two “daughters’ that aren’t even his… is he or isn’t he with Alexis and possibly Anna…

i watch Mac and Felicia commisserating over Maxie… and it’s heart pulsating… they garner more than enough interest to give them story…

geez! salute to old skool…. they may not have the shootz pa ???? whatever triggers the fans?

it’d melt my heart… to see something between these two unfold….

perhaps… Frisco will bring that….

wait till Mac and Felicia find out they’re going to be grandparents…

———————

they may not be high end or sought after… but… given the right story… i think it’d be cute and gut wrenching…

i’ve had a coupla glasses of wine…

can anyone imagine any of this happening under the previous regime? I can’t. it just shows how important it is for the right people to run a show. All this magic under JFP and BG would never have happened so thanks to the univeverse for FV and RC. As they say, timing is everything!

I’m very excited for Jack, Genie and all the folks who have come back or are coming back!! Even if it’s for a short period, the nod to the past as GH gets ready to celebrate their 50th Anniversary is fantastic! The revival of the Nurses Ball during this time is also such beautiful special part of the magic that #Cartini has crafted over the last year.

Fans need to focus on the good and get off of the “mean, rude, nit-pick, negative” train when it comes to soaps in general. They are soaps, they are drama. People come and go, leave of their own will, get fired, rolls are re-cast etc. No EP or Head Writer is going to please everyone. #GH is WAY better now than it was before #Cartini took over and I would like to thank Frank & Ron….. THANK YOU!!!

I remember been in school and writing my name Frisco Jones. Sounds nuts but i have always been a big fan of Jack Wagner. I am very happy that he is coming back home well he belongs.

I’d give my left hand to see Frisco, Felicia, Anna, Duke, Robert and Sean all back on my screen at the same time. And I’m left handed!

Frisco and felicia have to end up together again. And frisco never stole and can’t steal her away (from mac). You can’t steal someone that belongs with you. 🙂
That being said no one ever had more chemistry with Jack W. then Kristina had… and visa versa. F&F forever! I’m so exited he’s back !!

Seeking all the past characters coming back from my youth, and the ‘glory’ days of GH has made me tune back into GH. Like seeing the actors/characters come back. Feels familiar , nostalgic, and like old home. Also, the 2:00 timing of the show works better . While I am at the gym, I watch Days then switch to GH. Hope they will bring romance and intrigue for the return of these characters.

Oops, meant to say seeing all the past characters. Sorry for typos, I am typing this while I am in bed on my iPad! 🙂

I’m very excited. I just hope they don’t put them in good storylines, and then have them disappear before they’re over. Like the Duke/Anna fiasco.

Ces

I agree about the Duke/Anna thing. As much as I loved Faison on the show .. I think it really screwed up an awesome reunion between Duke & Anna. We saw a little hope of chemistry on the last episode but GH needs to somehow get that oomph between them again. Love Ian Buchanan!

Short Film ‘She & Her’ Starring GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Has Premiere Screening With Support Of Daytime Community

A very topical short film in the post-Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement made its debut recently.  The film, She & Her directed by General Hospital production associate Nate Hapke, and written and co-produced by Y&R script and story coordinator, Rosie Grace, explores the complicated friendship between three women as they attempt to find their voice and tell their own stories in Hollywood.

The short stars the one and only Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, GH) in the role of Poppy Sinclaire, a jaded ex-actress whose past comes back to haunt her when a young up and comer encourages her to publicly share her story of Hollywood abuse.

Hennesy’s co-stars include: Gwen Hillier who now is in front of the camera after working as a casting associate at GH.  Gwen has appeared on Transparent and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the other part of this trio is Mackenzie Breeden.

During its world premiere of She & Her (March 30th at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Hollywood) The Young and the Restless’ Brytni Sarpy (Elena) and Kate Linder (Esther) were on hand to lend their support; as was former GH star, Chloe Lanier (Ex-Nelle).  (Hapke is pictured below flanked by Lanier and Sarpy).

Following the film’s screening, the cast and crew took to the stage for a Q&A.  The cast was engaged through a lively discussion about the making of  the film, and the ways in which the filmmakers tackled topics such as  sexual assault, without exploiting the sensitive issue..

Following this LA premiere, She & Her will be embarking on its festival run, screening at venues all over the world.

Screenings will be announced on the official She & Her Facebook and  Twitter pages.

The film is the work of P 1 2 3 Productions and Soza Productions.
