Felicia Scorpio-Jones Back in Port Charles

Kristina Wagner will return to the role of Felicia Scorpio-Jones on General Hospital, it was announced today by Brian Frons, president, ABC Daytime.  Her first air date will be March 1st.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kristina Wagner back and have Felicia return home to her family,” said Mr. Frons in making the announcement.

“There are so many faces I’m anxious to see again,” commented Kristina Wagner.  “I am so excited to see the cast and crew and work with these talented individuals.”

General Hospital Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps said, “The upcoming main storyline of the series afforded an opportunity to bring back the core character of Felicia – the mother of Georgie and Maxie Jones – to our show.  As a result, we were able to cast the role with an industry veteran who portrayed the character so deliciously in the past.”

Wagner portrayed the character of Felicia Scorpio-Jones from August 1984 to February 2002.  A native of Indianapolis, she had a penchant for performing since her earliest recollections.  She was active in high school drama, dance and local theater before enrolling in Indiana Central University as a dance major.  She then transferred to Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, where she majored in theater.

After spending time with acting and dance lessons, Wagner sent her picture and resume – on the advice of her brother – to a modeling agency, which led to auditions for roles on All My Children, Ryan’s Hope, and eventually the part of Felicia on General Hospital.  Wagner begins airing again in the role of Felicia on March 1, 2004.
