Wagner says that if “Twitter is a way to measure fan reaction, it’s been pretty crazy. The 50th anniversary has been a pretty big deal, to have a show that runs 50 years, first of all. And to have everyone back on the show has had such a massive impact.”
The reunion has been leading up to this week’s Nurses Ball, which was an annual event on the show in its heyday. Wagner’s Frisco Jones will play the event, but he says he’s also had fun exploring “the tracks of the character, who really did abandon his family, which we got into. He wasn’t trying to justify what he did, but he reconnected with his daughter, which was very emotional and deep, which was important. That humanizes the character, as someone who’s not without sensitivity or awareness.”
