Fans 'so glad' Kristina Wagner back on General Hospital after son's tragic death


General Hospital character Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner) is one of the most popular Port Charles residents. For decades, Wagner has swerved in and out of the drama and after a brief break, the actress is back on the canvas following her son’s tragic death.

Kristina shares sons Peter and Harrison with ex-husband and former GH co-star Jack Wagner. Harrison was tragically found dead in a Los Angeles car park on June 6.

The LA County Medical Examiner told how Harrison was sadly pronounced dead at the scene at 5.14am local time, and the family has been inundated with love and support from fans.

Harrison endured a long-running struggle with addiction, before his death, Jack publicly opened up about his worries for his son on Twitter: “I fear for my youngest son’s safety. Harrison has struggled with drugs and alcohol just as I did when I was younger.”

Kristina is back on the General Hospital canvas after taking a personal break from the show and fans are ‘so glad’ about it.

Kristina Wagner is back on General Hospital

Devoted fans will know that Felicia has been pretty absent from her daughters’ adult lives and only seems to show up when a dramatic event happens, such as when Georgie (Lindze Letherman) died.

Maxie (Kristen Storms/Jen Lilley) always seems to have a problem with her mother but she has recently been giving some good advice.

Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Felicia met up for some fitness as they got the yoga mats and weights out, but as always, the workout was put on pause for some gossiping.

They began to discuss Valentin Casadine (James Patrick Stuart) and his recent deceit, Anna reveals that she wants him to be a part of her life, but she knows he is hiding something and she is desperate to know the truth.

Felicia also teamed up with Lucy to tell Mac Scorpio and Anna the truth about Cody’s birth parents…queue a Port Charles meltdown

General Hospital cast shares support after son’s tragic death

Wagner played Felicia on and off from her debut in 1984 to 2005 when Another World alum Sandra Ferguson stepped in for 12 episodes. She then returned in late 2007 until early 2008.

The soap star came back to General Hospital again on a full-time contract in January 2021. However, the actress then took a break from the show earlier this year, following the death of her son.

Fans were shocked to see Wagner back on the canvas so recently after the tragedy, but the cast welcomed her back with open arms and shared their support for the family throughout the heartbreaking situation.

Kelly Thiebaud told Entertainment Tonight that many members of the General Hospital cast and crew attended Harrison’s funeral.

Co-star Nancy Lee Grahn also told ET she had been in contact with Kristin since the tragedy and called her “remarkably strong” and “an exemplary mother”. Grahn has been a friend of the Wagners for some time and explained: “Having a sоn with an addictiоn was very difficult.”
