Actor Johnny Wactor chatted about “General Hospital” and being a part of the new “Barbee Rehab” series, which will premiere on Tubi on May 6.
He is known for playing Brando Corbin on the hit ABC daytime drama “General Hospital.”
Wactor opened up about working with actor David Lautman, who plays Invader reporter Grant Smoltz. “It was awesome working with David. That was the first day that we met,” he said. “I knew it would be fun and we were on the same page. We just went for it and we had fun.”
“In Friday’s episode, my character got to go back to the original light that Brando came onto the show as this tough guy, so it was cool to revisit that, especially since lately he is all lovey-dovey on Sasha and Liam,” he said.
“Fans have been responding really favorably to it on Twitter,” he added.
Maurice Benard and MB ‘State of Mind’
Wactor enjoyed doing scenes with Maurice Benard in the boxing ring, as well as being a part of his MB “State of Mind” episode. “That scene with Maurice turned out really well,” he said. “It morphed into something different and I loved the way that it came out. It was really natural since it featured two dudes that were connecting.”
Wactor had great words about working with Helena Mattsson, who temporarily filled in as Sasha for her sister Sofia Mattsson on “General Hospital.” “Helena is a sweetheart. It was cool to work with Helena (who happens to be Sofia’s real-life sister), Helena was fantastic,” he said.
“Doing ‘State of Mind’ with Maurice was great, he is so good at what he does. It got deep really quickly,” he said.

On September 10, Wactor is looking forward to being a part of the General Hospital fan event at Rockwells in Pelham, New York, along with co-star Marcus Coloma. “I am looking forward to it,” he said. “Marcus and I are excited to get back out on the road and go up there.”
