General Hospital‘s Kristina Wagner posed in a bikini for First For Women magazine at age 54. The soap opera star looked slim and toned as she stood by a pool in a red swimsuit.
A first time for everything.
Kristina Wagner was the star on General Hospital for decades, but this is the first time the star posed for a magazine cover in a bikini. The 54-year-old covered First For Women in a red two piece.
“Never in my life have I posed in a bikini or underwear before, but I didn’t mind because it’s not about ‘how do you get fit so you can wear a bikini’—it’s about a lifestyle and having good body image.”
The former General Hospital star’s magazine cover hits newsstands May 4, according to Daily Mail.

The actress looks amazing for her age and says it’s easy to stay in shape if you just consistently work at it.
“I look my best if I focus on taking care of my whole self—mind, body and spirit.”
Not caring what people think.
Wagner described how she used to care a lot about what other people thought about her saying, “for years I would easily attach to other people and what they thought.”
“But as I’ve become older, I’ve learned to honor myself, honor my feelings, own them and feel good about who I am. I don’t need to judge myself anymore.”
A long history on GH.
Kristina got her big break on General Hospital in 1984 when she was cast as Felicia Cummings. She appeared regularly on the soap opera until 2003.
The actress grew up in the spotlight and was used to the criticism from te public at this point.
