General Hospital New – Kristina Wagner’s History on “General Hospital”
Wagner first appeared on General Hospital in 1984. She continued to play the role of Felicia until 2003. She left the show for a bit but returned the following year on a recurring contract back in 2004. In 2005, she exited the soap once again after the show failed to move her to a contract role for a major storyline. Sandy Ferguson took over the role but left on the same year.
The character was not seen until 2007 when Wagner returned for a brief stint, which lasted until 2008. Four years later, the show announced that Wagner will reprise her role as Felicia, and she’s been playing the character ever since.
When she debuted the character, Felicia pretended to be a boy who was on a mission to secretly take a family heirloom from Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner). She eventually had to reveal her true identity. Since then, she’s been involved in several major storylines. She married Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) several times, had a romantic relationship with Mac Scorpio (John York), and gave birth to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Georgie (Lindze Letherman). She’s gone through several health scares including paralysis and amnesia.
