Johnny Wactor’s TV Wife and Ex-Fiancee on His Senseless Death

Johnny Wactor did not have a wife in real life, but he did have two women who loved him. They loved him so much that the news of his death broke both of their hearts in unimaginable ways.

Johnny, 37, was shot dead in cold blood while protecting a co-worker from three armed robbers. The trio were attempting to steal the catalytic converter from his car and when he approached them, assuming they were towing his car, one of the thieves opened fire.

Police continue to search for the gunman, which is little consolation to those who loved the General Hospital star.

Johnny Wactor’s TV wife remembers her ‘humble’ husband

Johnny appeared on the ABC daytime soap opera between 2020 and 2022, playing the role of Brando Corbin. His character was married to Sasha, played by Sofia Mattsson, who was one of the first cast members to post after the news of her death.

In an Instagram post, Sofía paid tribute to the late actor and her friend with a carousel of photos from their time together on the soap opera.

“My heart is completely broken…Johnny was the absolute best,” she said in the caption. “So genuine. Very affectionate. Incredibly hard-working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard, and loved. I greatly admire the man he was and I am a better person for having known him.”

He added: “We shared many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will always treasure them deeply in my heart. We will miss you so much, Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone there.”

Johnny’s ex-fiancée demands ‘justice’

While she never became Johnny Wactor’s wife, Tessa Farrell was engaged to him. General Hospital star for some time.

While their relationship didn’t last, Tessa clearly still had a lot of love for her ex. In an emotional video posted on TikTok, Tessa made a desperate appeal to the criminals, asking them to surrender.

“If you’re looking at the person who did this, I’m sorry, but you shot the wrong guy,” Farrell said through tears. “You can get a real job. I know the job market is difficult, but we are all in it together. It is not necessary to steal, especially take your life for it.”

At the end of the video, he posted the hashtag #JusticeForJohnny.

The suspects remain at large since the shooting early Saturday morning in downtown Los Angeles.

We hope that Tessa gets her wish and that they are caught soon to answer for the senseless death on their hands.
