Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Amazing news!

Maybe we’ll finally get Felicia’s reaction to losing her bar to Julian’s bomb.

Maxie gets her mother’s ear. And, what if Felicia possibly has a connection with Esme?

The show has a powerful group of actresses over 50 now on contract. Alexis, Anna, Carly, Felicia, Harmony and Laura. Throw in frequently used recurring Liesl and Olivia with Monica shining from time-to-time. What an awesome troupe of vibrant mature women.

I don’t know if Felicia herself would be “connected” to Esme. But she might very well be the first one to notice that Esme seems a little bit like Ryan Chamberlin…. because she’s probably his daughter. Obviously Felicia has history with Ryan, but that doesn’t mean she was keeping track of his whereabouts in the years he was gone from Port Charles. Like everybody else, she probably assumed he burned to death in the carnival fire back in the 1990s. Of course in her recent unexplained extended absence to Texas (or where ever she supposedly has been) she might have… Read more »

My big question is how does Esme know of Ryan and the fact that he may be her father. Does she know the mother who gave her birth,etc,etc??

Nearly every longtime female character on GH eventually has a never before mentioned child. Monica (Dawn), Bobbie (Carly), Alexis (Sam), Laura (Nikolas),Liesl (not as long term, but Nathan still). They tried with Anna, but fan backlash and a poorly conceived storyline forced them to undo that. Felicia may soon join that club.

Totally agreed! Also the great Jackie Zeman should be included on the list.

this is great news, Felicia is a character w/ such rich history, daughter Maxie has nothing on mom w/ the villains she’s fought and the adventures she’s been on. So happy for Kristina Wagner, and for us fans this is great news.

ya, I always like Frisco and Felicia I had read she was supposed to be back in 121/1/21?

Wonder if this means contracts for other vets? Because honestly if someone told me “Guess which vet is back on contract?” KW would’ve been low on my list because she’s been absent for so long.

Putting KW on contract seems to indicate there’s a major story coming up that they want to make sure she’s available.

Back in the early 2000’s when Kirsten Storms joined GH one of her first stories had them revisiting Maxie’s heart issues. JFP refused to give KW a contract resulting in the quick recast of Sandra Ferguson as Felicia. The storyline fell flat with 2 new recasts and the inability to use any flashbacks.

Makes sense. Just because she’s on contract doesn’t mean she’ll be on contract long term. Can be a 6 month contract for all we know.

Plus, contracts don’t mean the same number of appearances that they use to. The performers who play Shawn, Victor and Harmony are on contract but have been seen less on screen than recurring characters such as Valentin, Ned and Liesl.

This is great news… and makes me feel GH isn’t going to end any time soon as some predict with the departure of Jason…

Aka after the 60th anniversary.

So glad she’s coming back and am delighted she’s now on contract!
Does that mean John J. York’s “Mac” isn’t too far behind???? One can hope!

Nice news. BUT, for years, Genie would come and go and they didnt know what to do with her. They finally hit pay dirt with her being Mayor and having two long lost brothers. I hope they have a story for Kristina. One of her problems is Mac. He and her have no drama and not nearly the chemistry as she and Frisco. Jack probably doesnt want to ever return so why not breakup Mac and Felicia and let her find someone new that she can get involved in other stories on GH and let her have some excitement!

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
