After the rumor mill ran rampant all day long that Amelia Heinle is out at The Young and the Restless, On-Air On-Soaps can now confirm that is was just a rumor … and not true!

A Y&R spokesperson told On-Air On-Soaps, “Amelia isn’t going anywhere, she never was … and the character of Victoria has a lot of story coming up!”

This is good news for fans of the Daytime Emmy Award winning actress who has been a fan favorite the role of Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor’s  (Eric Braeden) daughter, Victoria Newman.

As for Amelia’s Twitter account, it is our understanding that at present time the actress has decided to take it down.

So, let’s all take a deep breath!  Excited to hear Amelia is staying put as of now at Y&R? Comment below!

Yeah! Glad that Amelia is staying. I really like her and she is very important to the core family.

Totally agree!!

I heard that she’s taking time away because her sister passed away. I am totally relieved that she’s staying!!!!!

I am very happy she is staying it wouldn’t be the same without her. She is great actress.

Glad to hear she is not leaving the show~

The character should be recast with Tamara Braun. I hate Amelia Heinle’s interpretation of the role. She has made a once vibrant and spunky character totally sedate and lacking in charisma. Heather Tom is still Victoria to me and Tamara Braun would be a worthy return to form.

they are not going to fire Amelia . although everyone is replaceable at their job, even you lol

Couldn’t agree more. I’ve never cared for Amelia’s Victoria. The only time she was interesting was when she played with Billy Miller.

Another site is saying her sister died. She was off set for a time, and that’s what sparked the rumors. Not sure if THAT’S true either…

Sorry…sister-in-law died.

I love Tamara Braun. She brought such a sensitive side to GH’s Carly.
I agree on Amelia’s Victoria-never clicked with me.

aww dammit!
the depressing sad-sac mopy big snore should leave, really ..

But su, she had to stay…glad Sharon is around too…had these two left you might have had something positive to say about Y&R…lol

hey jimh!
yes, oh yes! how wonderful that would be 🙂
and– I do say nice things about Y&R, I even watch it lol
But- truth is- this year has been as horrible a Sharon to watch LOL ..

Soon as Pratt’s writing get on screen I believe I will enjoy Y&R, again..
He will kill off some and blow up others!!
Its going to be a good 2015! 🙂

Ha! Sue and Jim, you are both cracking me up big time.

Always spreading sunshine, Su!

Marky!!
Ohhh I do do that, don’t I ,, lol

Ain’t no sunshine when (Su) she’s gone
It’s not warm when she’s away ,,,,,,, and on it goes

naww just telling it as it is 😉 Victoria is a snore.. lol

Aww, Mark. You need to get to the core of what makes our su0000 tick….LOL. If you can do that, you’ll find that she truly does spread sunshine. Don’t you su? I love it!….. My day starts with a smile after reading her oh, so lively messages…LOL….I guess you haven’t read my posts on Sam or Sonny(GH)…..nor Shay’s on Sabrina. Compared to my comments, Su’s are tame.LOL. . All in good fun, Mark….later.

I think Victoria has been perkier and smiley-faced
since her life has settled down happily with little Katie
and her apparent happiness with Ben (although I think
she really still loves Billy).
And with other female characters being a bit too loud
or in your face, Victoria’s basic mellowness can be
refreshing, in my opinion.

If ur going to critisize, at least try to spell correctly! Makes it easier to understand u.

criticize

Well, Eileen…it is YOU’RE not UR…..and YOU, not U…..just saying. Later and LOL.
Oh, I am wondering….to whom are you referring? Most of us do not re-read our posts before sending. Ergo, the typos. Shall we take you to task next time you make one?

Now Cee Cee, you are making me roar with ribald laughter. Sometimes the comic section here provided much needed comic therapy.

THANK. YOU.

I do believe Ashley shares your sentiments, Su. Now, tell me. Is Ashley being such a mean girl to Victoria out of jealousy?….or, is she really concerned over the fact that Victoria’s intentions to steal the formula are indeed fraudulent?

Victoria has been a thorn in Ashley’s side ever since she was a little girl. And when she came back from boarding school, the little bitch did everything in her powerful to destroy Ashley’s marriage to Victor. And she succeeded.

well, CeeCee,,
Ashley is being mean to Victoria because I asked her to take Victoria down, in tweeter,,
It most likely is because of me .. lol!

Victoria will not steal the formula.. all she does is mope around her house carrying her baby from the couch to the basket thingy.. so, no problem..
Victoria does nothing, absolutely nothing of interest, so dont expect too much from her… 😉

Sue, have you noticed that Johnny, the baby Chelsey gave to Billy (who fathered him) and Victoria has become MIA? No one even mentions poor Johnny,
All they do is talk about little Kate. Poor Johnny!

This is GREAT news! I am delighted that it was just a rumor and Amelia isn’t leaving YR!

I will miss her. She’s wonderful as Victoria Newman and brings a great deal to that character and the show.

Sometimes if you don’t have something good to say, it’s best not to say anything…

I like her and am glad she is staying. I like her so much better than Heather Tom.

good ,I don’t always like viki ,but I like ameila ,I was looking forward in seeing how viki was with gabe ,when she didn’t know he was adam ,and wasn’t afraid of sharing him with daddy,

OH

these headlines… just give me a start

jump!

Ms. Heinle : I’m so glad you are where you’re at :

I love Victoria… you emmied for a reason…. “this is YOUR Time”

it’s not her fault… the actress

is saddled with SO much DULL : Victor, Nikki, and Nikolas

I said wait to see if true or not before we comment…

Well, Jim, I tried but I suffer from impulse control issues. I am the one who often says,”Did I say that aloud?”

So happy to hear this! I love AH and her rendition of Victoria Newman. She is a top notch actress and my favorite Victoria. I didn’t care for Heather Tom as Vikki… I do like her as Katie, though, on Bold and Beautiful.

i love Amelia Heinle as Victoria please come back soon

I know her sister has cancer. I hope she hasn’t taken a turn for the worse. I love Amelia. Hope she plays Victoria for many years to come.

Yay!!!! Though I never had any doubt, with how much story she’s had lately and the fact she just won an Emmy, and let’s face it a contender for this year’s Emmys with her scenes when she have birth to Katie, who would think she would really be out? Sure she has a few vocal haters but she stays on the top of the polls regularly and is a part of two very popular couples: Villy and Sticky! Can’t wait to see what’s up next for one of my favorite characters and so glad the rumor about Amelia leaving is being put to rest right away.

Oh, gosh

“thank the heavens, she has her own fan vocal appreciation”

pelt me with pain

should clarify…. pelt me with pain

was a gesture aimed at naysayers of… Amelia Heinle

I adore her

I don’t watch Y&R. However, this “news” was… Much Ado About Nothing.

Well obviously it was “Much Ado About Nothing” to you, Jeremy. You don’t watch Y&R!

That’s right, as I stated…I don’t watch Y&R. Yet, I was hoping she’d jump ship and come to GH!

Sarcasm at its best. Harry.

So CBS reassures fans Amelia is not going anywhere but for months have made no comment about all the rumors surrounding Christian LeBlanc being fired.

They won’t comment on Christian because his storyline has his character in jeopardy. If they say he’s leaving, it conceivably “spoils” his storyline. They will respond to rumors about Amelia because they came out of left field and aren’t storyline-related.

I will take a deep breath and exhale forth my disappointment.
I haven’t been this disappointed since I opened up my Secret Santa gift which was beautifully wrapped up in a Tiffany Box only to discover a Homer Simpson Chia Pet Head inside.
Marge?

OH, MY GOD!!!! What am I going to do with you, Harry? I have a stitch on my side from laughter!!

Not surprising another YR actor has quit Twitter. A lot of verbal abusive comments were so upsetting for Joshua Morrow in 2014 he simply quit interacting with fans of the show and now mainly comments to other actors or about sports. Good decision as no one, especially not these hard working actors, need verbal abuse for their characters actions or plots. Perhaps the same is true for Amelia. I will always respect her for her being able to follow in Heather Tom’s shoes and making the character her own. I do not compare actors when they replace another. It is their own unique skills that can then re-create the role. I’m always amazed when attending the charity events they do, how very grateful they are to supportive fans. After all, their efforts are done in a very isolated studio at CBS. No fans there usually. So, personally am very glad Amelia is not leaving.

You’re so right! These are living breathing people with feelings, not characters from a show. I made the mistake once of saying something derogatory about an actress. She saw it and I was mortified at what I had done.

I just want to clarify–I think Amelia is beautiful and talented–I just never saw her as Victoria Newman.
She seems more like an artist than a business woman.

Hey, Jonboy. I do appreciate your concern and your diplomacy. However, it is , in fact, the characters we discuss on these sites, not the actors/actresses.
Yes, they are people, but said people are in the public eye, thus they become vulnerable to gossip, snide remarks and such. This position comes with a lot of baggage. They chose this so-called profession…rude comments are part of the territory. So, I, personally, have no qualms discussing the roles these thespians play….negatively or positively. ‘Tis my duty….LOL. Just saying. Later.

Has nothing to do with diplomacy and everything to do with basic courtesy and respect. Trash a character and their antics all you want but when you begin debasing another person for their appearance or any other reason you are a fairly lousy excuse for a human being.

Totally agree…100 percent…with you jon boy. Had a very, way more heated debate about this very topic on a GH post.

Amelia does a fine job playing Victoria.

Agreed!! Amelia is the best Victoria I’ve seen!!

Bring back HEATHER TOM! She will always be the REAL Victoria Newman. Nothing against AH, but ironically, she would be better suited to a character like Katie Logan.

i agree..ms tom will always be Victoria

Thank God! I was seriously worried because it wouldn’t be completely out of fashion for Y&R to get rid of yet another amazing actor on their show. Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, Michael Muhney, Elizabeth Hendrickson… to name a few that have departed in recent years… The last thing Y&R needs is to use another talented veteran cast member. What Pratt should focus on doing is rebuilding Y&R by bringing back legacy characters with ties to the canvas, not getting rid of ones they have and their talented portrayers.

Now, I just hope Christian LeBlanc doesn’t get the axe, and Michael will be able to fight off the cancer. Michael is a legacy character that has been part of the show for more than 2 decades. Christian LeBlanc is a very talented actor who doesn’t deserve to be axed for a story. If they really wanted to do a story about a character dying from cancer, I’d be just fine with it being Lily. She has very little purpose on the show now, no real story for months, and IMO she’s not nearly as important as Michael.

I have to agree with everything you said with the exception of two things. 1st. If they have to kill someone off PLEASE let it be Summer. 2nd. Elizabeth Hendrickson really? I always thought she thought of herself better than anyone else on the show, but I would rather watch an hour long show with her & her maid mother Ester that 5 minutes of Summer with all her issues.

amen, Nikki.

everybody rallies around tired overblown summer

Summer has no purpose since her mother came out of the coma and her DNA has finally become a closed issue.
First, it was,’ I can’t believe Kyle is my brother when I was crushing on him’ which was replaced by ‘I can’t believe Kyle isn’t my brother. Then it was,’I can’t believe Nicholas isn’t my dad replaced by ‘I can’t believe Jack is my dad’ which was replaced by’ I can’t believe Nicholas was my dad all along and Jack is not.” All the while she would interject her DNA musings by saying,”I miss my mom–she’s in a coma.” Now all of the aforementioned has been resolved so poor Summer doesn’t know what to with herself.
No wonder she’s going back to college as an undeclared major. Now her thought process will be ‘I can’t believe I am an undeclared major.’

Maid mother! Hilarious. Love it

Summer makes me think of a opportunist. Where there’s a camera you’ll find her mug.

LOL! Amen to that!

I love Michael/Christian. When I see his familiar face, I feel warm and fuzzy. Y&R will not be the same without him….as you have listed, it hasn’t been, since all the other actors/actresses have left….now, another big chunk of Y&R’s fabric will possibly be eradicated.

I, too, hope Michael conquers this thing and remain part of the Y&R family.
I am always left somewhat nonplussed when the first thing that pop’s into a guy’s head is his sexuality. Michael only seems to fixate on his manly prowess…his performance in bed more than his health.
I guess women are definitely different. Personally, it would not be the uppermost thought in my head…..and I’m in my twenties…..Ahhhh, you guys !!!!!…..LOL. later.

I love Michael as well as the cancer story behind Lauren & Michael but I read that the one leaving is Jill. That would make sense because G.C. is always looking for a lawyer but Jill has not had much of a story line since that horrid music box. I also think either Phyllis or Kelly will have to go. I can’t see them getting rid of Phyllis so I think either Kelly leaves on her own or Phyllis kills her. Remember Phyllis tried run down Christine & Paul? J.M.O.

OH SNAP!!! MF, you dashed my hopes of a Victoria Newman recast. Darn it !!!!

I’m sorry, just not a fan of hers. She’s boring, has no excitement about her.

I agreed until she and Billy (Billy Miller) got together. Then I liked her. Now that BM is gone, her character isn’t as fun. Still like Amelia, but don’t like her with Ben. Not that being with the current incarnation of Billy would do her many favors either. Casting person at Y&R needs help.

Great news!

Great news. I’m so happy she’s going to stay. Love her acting and love her with Stitch. I wish they would bring back J.T. (her real life husband) as well.

Good news. I’m not crazy nuts about the actress either (Heather Thom will forever be Victoria) but i don’t want any more recasts.

I wouldnt miss her. Doesnt mean I dont like her. When Billy Miller left, Victoria as I knew her died. I would recast someone better equipped to act next to Burgess. Tamara Braun is a great actress but would look too young next to Burgess.

Hi, Timmm,
Anyone would look too young next to Burgess. Ugh!! He just has an old-looking, nondescript, white-washed face. However, he is about the same age as Tamara. On the other hand, Melissa Claire Egan is ten years younger than either of them….he looks old enough to be her father; just as Peter/Jack, who is, indeed, old enough to be Gina’s/Phyllis’s father. Later.

CeeCee, I’m with you on Burgess BUT it doesnt seem like he is going anywhere so you have to figure out who he looks and fits with. I discount the ages because we would all go bonkers with that. For instance, Summer, she is still a little kid who is portrayed as an adult, meanwhile I bet she cannot even put a straw in her juice box! Once Nick and Sharon are done fighting over Faith, next thing you know she is working at the Underground! Its crazy. But anyway, back to “Billy”, I see him best with Chelsea but you know she will eventually be with Adam so if I were Y&R and would bring back Maureen, face the music and then have her and Billy fall in love! Ewww, I know but think about it, side by side they kind of look like a couple. See ya!

Good for you, Mo. I missed the misspelled word, ‘criticize’….what sweet irony!

You know what, Timmm? Billy and Maureen do fit….they even look alike. Why didn’t I see that before? LOL. later.

I believe their is a death in the family why don’t we let the woman have her privacy!

Still don’t trust JFP and soap killer Pratt!

I’m happy that Amelia and Victoria are not going anywhere. I didn’t see it plausible to get rid of either of them.

Sorry for your loss .I hope you can get this worked out.Family is the most important thing.

Her sister-in-law or sister died. She’s going to help with the two children left motherless and to grieve…

So glad Amelia is staying ! I love her as Victoria Newman!

She should be RECAST as the Victoria character needs to age.

She is no longer a spring chicken in her 30’s. She should be in her 50’s.

She was a cougar to Billy who should be at least 10 years older than him.

I don’t think Victoria is a boring character at all. And by the way, Amelia is my only Victoria. I did not watch during the HT’s tenure. Victoria is a necessary kind of character on a soap because she’s normal. There are over-the-top, melodramatic characters – Victor, Nikki, Phyllis, Jill, Kelly to name a few. Then there are normal characters like Victoria, Paul, Michael. They can’t all be mumbling, billionaire egomaniacs and ex-stripper, alcoholic socialites. And I’m very happy with Burgess. The character of Billy was morphing from the hard-drinking playboy with the Cheshire cat smile. Billy was beginning to grow up, especially with Delia’s death. Billy is now a kinder, gentler Billy but he’s not boring. Love reading Leave it to Beaver Jim, Su, Cee Cee and many others of you!

Well, Mark. I appreciate your post. I love your writing….you have a very calm, descriptive way of explaining your view.
But, Victoria is not so ‘normal’. There have been moments where I did question her normalcy…..to name one….her mother, Nikki, slept with her own son-in-law, Cole; Victoria’s husband.
It is NOT normal to carry on and befriend her mother again. Perhaps this character is more forgiving than most daughters, but I could have never looked my mother in the eye again. THAT is not normal.
Now, Nikki is made out to look like a martyr; I am tired of her damsel-in-distress syndrome (into her sixties), but I’d rather have a complex character than not….that’s the stuff of which soaps are made. Later.

And you gotta’ love ’email, right Cee Cee?

Cee Cee, I could not agree with you more when it comes to Niki.
I just want to tell her, “Speak up woman!” You’re not the Horse Whisperer for Heaven’s sake! Do answering machines hang up on her? Here is what I imagine— Paul–“Hi, you’ve reached Paul. Please leave a message and I will get right back to you. Thank you, and have a nice day!” Nikki (whispering) “Hello, Paul. It’s me. You said to call me when I needed a friend and I need a fr—-BEEP!”
And if I have to look at her stare with longing one more time at that crystal pitcher full of vodka, I am going to need a drink myself. Why would an alcoholic have a cocktail table always set up in the living area when she is not having a party? In fact, have you ever been to anyone’s home were there is always a table set in the living room up with a line up of liquor, soda water, cut limes/lemons, olives, ice and an array of cocktail glasses? Nope, you see only see the aforementioned on soaps or old movies from the thirties starring William Powell and Carole Lombard who are constantly dressed in black tie and evening gowns.

Hey, Harry.
You are the one who keeps us in stitches. You have a naturally sardonic and wry humor. I actually devour your posts.
Thus, while on the subject; does it bother you when these protagonists bungle their grammar? The most common grammatical error (it’s a fallacy since all of them make this mistake) is …’between’ she and I. The correct grammar is…’between her and me’. Why? You know, Harry….object of the preposition. It bothers me to no end.

Cee Cee, you must be an English teacher. You have a very good eye. Yes, it bothers me but I do not say anything because as soon as I do, I make an even worser, er, worse, error myself. You never make a careless mistake/typo.
What bothers me the most is when someone is trying to be all proper and think using “I” or “whom” is always proper no matter what. All they have to do is figure out who or what the subject is and the rest follows accordingly. The other day someone knocked on Nikki’s door and she whispered,”Whom is it?” Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, Nikki, it tolls for thee.
But as Winston Churchill once said, “A preposition is something with which I will not put.”

Harry,

I think that Summer should add something else to her, um, thought process…

Summer: “I can’t believe that I’m a whiny, spoiled, annoying brat…but I am!!!!!”

Have a good one, Harry. Peace.

okay, Amelia’s not leaving ;however, what’s happened to the characters of Tyler and his sister ? See, it’s been so long that I can’t remember her name!

People would you please in everything you hold dear to you stop this attack on this actress I just got word a friend of mine is dying of brain cancer can you not for just one minute stop the attacks on this actress and leave her alone for gods sake to grieve for her family or are you such vipers that you can’t back off? You really make me feel ashamed for you do you not have any class or respect! Or is your heartstrings filled with such venom that you do not care. She is an actress playing a role please back off it is beyond reason and this is comin from someone who had not been a big fan of her portrayal of Victoria Newman. But please back off you disgust me with your vile comments,

Sorry about your friend but what does that have to do with Amelia and why would she be grieving ? I’m confused.

She lost her sister i law to cancer on Dec 31st I just wanted everyone to back off for a while and give the woman some peace! I guess it was too much to ask for the bleeding vultures

Please just get Billy Miller back.The chemistry with Amelia is like no others on the show. I can even adjust to the new Adam but Billy needs to be Billy Miller.

K/K, oh I had no idea, that’s terrible, so sorry for her, but the way you worded your post it sounded like it was a friend of yours that died, and I couldn’t make the connection. Thank you for clearing that up.

General Hospital

Nicholas Chavez Speaks Out on the Death of Friend and Former GH Castmate Johnny Wactor: “I’m Beside Myself with Sadness”

It has been another rough go for the General Hospital family following the news surrounding the shooting that killed beloved former cast member, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) over the weekend.

Since that time, there has been an outpouring of grief, shock and sadness, and remembrances for the actor who died at 37-years-old.  Many of Johnny’s castmates have spoken out about the loss and shared heartbreaking tributes.

Now, Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer Cassadine) who is soon-to-be-seen in Ryan Murphy’s limited series on Netflix, Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story, has also shared his sentiments. With heartfelt words, along with a photo of himself and Johnny, and another former GH co-star, Marcus Coloma (ex-Nikolas), Chavez explained the difficulty he is having processing Johnny’s death and the unbreakable bond they shared.

Photo: Facebook

Nick began, “Johnny — I’m beside myself with sadness. The last time I saw you, we ran into each other by accident in Los Angeles. When we recognized each other your face lit up and you ran essentially across the room to give me a big and tight hug. You were a strong and kind person”

He went on to say, these heartfelt words to Johnny, “You were a phenomenal friend and you always made me feel welcomed and loved. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been a part of your life and I’m praying for you and your family. I will miss you very much.”

Johnny Wactor run on GH lasted from 2020-2022, while Nicholas Chavez appeared from 2021 till early in 2024.

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.

There has been an outpouring of grief, sadness and remembrances for former General Hospital actor, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin 2020-2022), who the world learned was shot and killed on Saturday in a senseless theft and act of gun violence.

As previously reported, Wactor was only 37-years-old. The incident, as told by Wactor’s mother to TMZ, which ultimately took his life, occurred when three individuals attempted to steal the catalytic converter from Johnny’s car. Once alerted to the situation. Wactor did not try to stop or interfere in the theft but the unidentified suspects shot him anyway and then got a way.

Wactor’s talent agent, David Shaul, made this statement on his passing to Variety, “Johnny Wactor was a spectacular human being. Not just a talented actor who was committed to his craft but a real moral example to everyone who knew him. Standing for hard work, tenacity and a never give up attitude. In the highs and lows of a challenging profession he always kept his chin up and kept striving for the best he could be. Our time with Johnny was a privilege we would wish on everyone. He would literally give you the shirt off his back. After over a decade together, he will leave a hole in our hearts forever.”

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Maurice Benard (Sonny): “What can I say about something so senseless? Johnny was the sweetest guy coolest dude and just a great soul. This is beyond words you will be missed my friend.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Photo: ABC

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Photo: ABC

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Ashton Arbab (ex-Dev): “Absolutely heartbroken while typing this. Johnny Wactor was not only my tv dad for more than 25 episodes on General Hospital but he was a great human, a kind soul, an inspiration and a one of a kind actor. May your soul rest in peace. Heaven gained an Angel.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

Lydia Look (Selina): “Johnny, I’m crying and will be for a bit. I knew you were talented when you simply just took your shirt off when the rest of us were trying to outdo each other with our skits. I also knew there & then that you were fine as wine 😻 I also saw how you’d let others take the spotlight whilst confident & loving in your own space. Most of all, I learnt what a magnificent human you were in our long car rides between fan events. I will cherish our chats. Thank you.”

The official General Hospital social media accounts on X and Instagram shared: “The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor’s untimely passing.
