Kristina Wagner returned to General Hospital following the birth of her son,
Petey, in 1991. And so it is that Ms. Wagner continues to charm television
viewers in the role of Felicia Jones-Scorpio.
A native of Indianapolis, Kristina has 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 drama major.
She then transferred to Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis,
where she majored in theater. Kristina continued to study dance and took
lessons to refine her speech. While in school, she performed extensively with
the University Theater Group, and in her spare time worked in local commercials.
On her brother's recommendation, she sent her picture and resumé to a modeling
consultancy, which led to auditions for roles on All My Children, Ryan's Hope,
and eventually, the part on General Hospital -- Kristina's television drama
debut. (Ms. Wagner first joined the show in August of 1984.)
A self-proclaimed adventurous type, Kristina loves camping, river rafting
and mountaineering, as well as ice skating, swimming and gymnastics.
"Africa was a very emotional experience for me," Ms. Wagner explains of
her trip to Africa several years ago. As a result of that visit, Ms. Wagner
has become an advocate for the protection of wildlife and is a board member
of the Africa Wildlife Foundation.
Kristina and former General Hospital cast member Jack Wagner were married in
December, 1993. They reside in Los Angeles with their sons, Petey and Harrison.
