From a casual day out to a harrowing death, it was like the worst nightmare turned into reality! Wactor was brutally murdered in broad daylight, leaving his close ones devastated. Although Farrell was no longer a part of his life, she couldn’t help but express her grief in a heartbreaking video. 

On May 27, two days after his death, Farrell posted a lengthy video on TikTok reacting to the untimely demise. “If the person who did this, if you’re watching, I’m sorry, but you shot the wrong guy,” she said in the video. 

She even felt compassion for the culprit and assumed his motivation behind the act could be a lack of jobs or resources. However, she emphasized that stealing or taking “a life over it” was not the solution. “Human life is disregarded too easy,” she said through tears. 


She urged her followers to make changes in the community and support each other. “Maybe that’s what Johnny’s gift is for us, maybe he’s gifting that to all of us,” she concluded.


Wactor’s heroic gesture left people inspired

On Saturday morning, three masked men approached the General Hospital star on his way out of a rooftop restaurant with a co-star. Although he successfully shielded the woman, he was gunned down by the goons. 

His agents shared a touching statement to Variety in which they called Wactor a “real moral example” and proved that until his last breath. The statement mentioned the late actor as a spectacular human being as well as a great actor. 

His General Hospital co-star Kirsten Storms shared a heartbreaking tribute for the actor over his tragic death and called him “one of those rare ‘real individuals’ that you almost never come across.” Sofia Mattson, who played his love interest on the show, said she was better for having known Wactor.
