Biography

Dashing blond singer-actor Jack Wagner enjoyed a career in a variety of mediums that included starring on numerous soap operas and in made-for-TV movies and musical theater productions around the country, as well as recording several easy-on-the ears pop albums. He was also considered one of the best non-professional golfers on the competition circuit, having won the prestigious American Century Club Celebrity Golf Championship in 2006. The blue-eyed charmer first hit overnight stardom in 1983 when he joined the most popular daytime soap, "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ) as singer-secret agent Frisco Jones and at the same time, scored a No. 2 pop hit with "All I Need," a song borrowed from the show. Over the next 25 years, the entertainer rarely fell out of sight or out of favor with female fans no matter how evil or melodramatic his characters, including his four-year run as the scheming Dr. Peter Burns on "Melrose Place" (Fox 1992-99). Close to age 50, Wagner still boasted no shortage of fan websites devoted to him and his evergreen brand of "soap opera handsome."
