His acting coach, Stuart Rogers, said he was also grappling with shock and anger. 

“I’m pissed that he was killed over a f--king catalytic converter,” Rogers said. 

After Wactor starred on “General Hospital '' for two years, he appeared in numerous TV shows and films. Although Wactor became a recognized daytime TV star, he remained humble and accessible, according to Mike Silver, who directed Wactor’s first film “The Interrogation.”

“This guy was just a true team player, Silver said. “He had no sense of his celebrity or what he had accomplished. He was always just wide, curious and interested.”

During the Hollywood strikes last year, Wactor frequently hit the picket lines with fellow actors, pushing for a better contract for SAG-AFTRA members.

Police were dispatched to the location at 3:15 a.m. Paramedics rushed the shooting victim to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
