Carolyn Hinsey's Latest General Hospital Casting Scoopage: "They're Clearing The Deck For Kristina Wagner"






It looks like we can finally start planning Felicia Jones Scorpio's (Kristina Wagner) welcome home party! After weeks of rumors (and one fake Facebook post), veteran soap journo Carolyn Hinsey is now confirming General Hospital is set to bring half of one of the soap's most popular 80's supercouple's back to Port Charles. Tweeted Hinsey:

Hey GH fans! They're clearing the decks for Kristina Wagner. Sssshhh... you heard it here first. #soapsstillmatter


 

How awesome is this news? I sure hope GH's new showrunner Frank Valentini can book Wagner's real and reel life ex-hubby (and upcoming Dancing With The Stars foxtrotter Jack Wagner) next. Soaps Still Matter, indeed!

In all fairness, Carolyn Hinsey did NOT spill this 1st. RavenBeauty Soap Diva mentioned it first on 02/06/12:

Hey Guys,

Frisco and Felicia done........On their way.

@SoapCrazy: I don't think that Ron at the moment is thinking about bringing old fan favorites back to GH's farewell. He's trying to win fans back and is taking this show in a different direction. And that's why these people come back - so this show survives.
I guess it happen to be so many of them because the two previous regimes weren't really interested in characters like Felicia, Robert or Heather. They had a different version of GH. So I guess Ron just had to call them up and that was about it.

Anything else might be happening if ABC decides to wreck their daytime completely and cancel GH.

This is VERY good news, indeed!! And I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that misses Robyn Richards. To me, she is Maxie. GH made a big mistake letting her go. Ron should bring her back as well. Bring Back Emily, Alan, Dillon and Georgie as well. THAT would be the icing on the cake!! Smile

Why are they "clearing the decks"? I am sure all it takes is a willingness to write for the character!
The Luza and GagIn obviously never had that!

I am all for Kristina Wagner returning! Felicia was one of my fav characters when I started watching back in 1996. Frisco would be icing on the cake, so hopefully Jack can work out a schedule with DWTS if this ever comes to fruition. Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, & Kelly Monaco did it. Frisco & at least Felicia HAVE to return to reconcile with Maxie. If we have to be stuck with Jen Lilley, at least this will help ground her version of Maxie.

Very excited and have been waiting for this news! Hoping they bring Jack back too and that they can work out working together. It will be great to see Felicia interact with Maxie, Anna, Holly, Robert, Mac, and others! She was always one of my favorites and I grew up watching her. I believe Jen Lilley will do a good job, she is a good actress, I know we would prefer Kirsten S. but if she's sick, nothing can be done until she recovers! Looking forward to FELICIA!!!!

great news that she's coming back. ...

meanwhile, can someone help me out on one of the plots she was in just before i quit watching years ago?

she and luke were trying to figure out why there were two bodies in one crypt of the q's family mausoleum. the two of them and edward and lila were in the living room when --

the morons at the KABC news department decided to break in with yet another L.A. freeway chase just that couldnt wait until the 5 o'clock news.

the next day the show went on and this plot was NEVER mentioned again, thanks to dopey writers. i kept waiting for SOMEONE to bring it up.

... so who were the two bodies? and did lila or edward kill someone?

thanks.

YAY! Agree with all who've said they need JW, RR, and LL and Dillon (hopefully, SC, but I'm open to a well chosen recast) back as well. I don't care how it's done, just get it done.

IF they could get Amber Tamblyn, Emily's return would be wonderful. Otherwise, ugh, no thanks. I'd rather see Alan and Scotty Baldwin and AJ and most of all: Genie Francis. I'm sure they're saving the best for last though, as far as GF goes.

I hope kristina wagner has taking some acting lessons .She and holly (from GH) are two of the worst actors I've ever seen in my life. and her speaking voice is terrible. it has that 'whiny little girl thing' that is so ugly in a mature female over the age of twenty-five. It's bad enough we have to put up with the dregs of the cancelled One life... yikes. the stunt casting is starting to grate. Soon we'll be begging to have them put GH out of its misery.
