General Hospital’s Jack Wagner is “Forever Grateful” to Co-Star Rick Springfield


 
Why is Jack Wagner beholden to co-star Rick Springfield?  The General Hospital rock stars were playing a show together in Boca Raton, Florida, when Wagner met his long-lost daughter, Kerry.  A celebrity golf tournament has Jack going back to the sunshine state and the memories of that night have the avid golfer happy to do it.

The Palm Beach Post writes,


Wagner, one of the celebrities scheduled to appear at the ISC-Audubon EcoGolf Celebrity Charitable Tournament at Hollywood Beach’s Westin Diplomat on Saturday, has a notable Palm Beach County tie-in: In November 2011, backstage at a concert he played at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheater with fellow “General Hospital” heartthrob rocker Rick Springfield, he met his long-lost daughter Kerry, who lives in Broward County.

“I’m forever grateful to Rick Springfield,” he says earnestly.

Jack Wagner Dishes General Hospital Return With Access Hollywood

The last time General Hospital viewers saw Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) in Port Charles, the lovable WBS agent/singer was helping Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as their daughter Maxie (then played by Robyn Richards) battled Kawasaki syndrome. Eighteen years later, Wagner has returned home to the show that made him a household name. Access Hollywood was on the GH set to get the details on Frisco's return. Wagner revealed:

When I talked to Frank [Valentini], the [executive] producer, and we decided that Frisco would come back it’s like, ‘Is he coming back [with the] ‘out of the Turkish prison look,’ with a little gruffy beard and Harrison Ford in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ or, is going to be more Michael Douglas ‘Wall Street’? So he said, ‘Let’s make it Turkish prison.’ So, I’ve cleaned up since I’ve been back.
