Johnny Wactor is being remembered by his co-stars in heartfelt tributes as his untimely death has shocked them after he was fatally shot while protecting a colleague.

AceShowbiz - Johnny Wactor, 37, was leaving his job at a rooftop bar with a female co-worker in downtown Los Angeles when he encountered three masked men attempting to steal his car's catalytic converter. True to his upbringing as a "Southern gentleman," Wactor shielded the woman from the thieves but he eventually ended up being fatally shot around 3 A.M.

Wactor, who portrayed Brando Corbin on "General Hospital" from 2020 to 2022, is being remembered by his peers for his remarkable character and kindness. Kirsten Storms, who played Maxie Jones, shared on Instagram, "I'm in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don't typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there."

Sofia Mattsson, who played Sasha Gilmore, expressed her grief, "My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard-working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy."

Parry Shen (Brad Cooper) reminisced about their newfound friendship, "Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. No ego. And as you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck."

Wactor's dedication extended off-screen as well. His mother, Scarlett Wactor, revealed that Johnny often picked up side gigs as a bartender and was deeply committed to helping those around him. His younger brother Grant also emphasized Johnny's protective nature, a trait that ultimately led to his tragic demise.

As the community mourns, #justiceforjohnnywactor has trended on social media, urging authorities to find those responsible for this senseless act.
