Jack Wagner is back on "General Hospital" for the first time in 18 years, once again playing the character that made him a household name -- Frisco Jones -- and Access Hollywood was first on set with the returning daytime star.

"I think, in life, we never can anticipate where it's going to take us, so to be back here and to be working with Kristina [Wagner], my ex-wife, who's just so beautiful and wonderful, and to have so many of the core characters back from the '80s, when 'General Hospital' was so huge - [it's] been awesome," Jack told our Access producer (pictured above) during our exclusive visit to the "GH" set on Thursday in Los Angeles. "I'm really happy. I'm glad I came back."

Jack will make his return debut as sexy secret agent Frisco on February 4, one week before the return airdate of another famous face from Port Charles - Genie Francis - who, as previously announced, is reprising her role of Laura Spencer.

Their returns coincide with the show's 50th anniversary, which occurs this April.
