GH's Returning Ingo Rademacher Reveals: "Stoked To Be Back On Set Working With Laura Wright & Maurice Benard!"

Fan favorite Ingo Rademacher (Jax), who is back on set working this summer at General Hospital, and returns on-air in late July, posted an image on his Instagram account revealing his excitement being back in Port Charles reviving his role.

The actor teased with a photo outside the GH soundstage entrance: “Stoked to be back on set working with @thereallauraw @mauricebenard @generalhospitalabc special thanks to @acura for the stunningly luxurious #2016acuramdx #mdx #mahiku @mahikuactivewear #GH #generalhospital #abc #Abc #abcgeneralhospital”

Jax is returning to be a part of the discovery of just who is the donor of his daughter Josslyn’s kidney, but as we have also gleaned from GH head writers, Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante, there is more to this story and it may take off in a different direction.

So, getting ready for “Jax is back” time on GH? Let us know in the comment section below!

I never saw any of the Jax years on GH. Does this mean more Sonny and company? (gross)

I am in the same boat as you, Charday. I know nothing about this character; mainly because I am not interested. So, gross is right. Sonny, Carly and Morgan steal the show….not in a good way.
Not looking forward to adding more to the daily dose of Sonny and gang.

Cee, you will hate Sonny even MORE because he constantly pulls Jax’s strings and calls him “Candy Boy!” Its tough to watch. Jax rarely has the upper hand with the Grease Man!

Jax is a great character with a lot of history. He is BFF’s with Alexis and Ned. He’s Josselyns dad, so hes back for the kidney storyline. It makes sense. And, Sonny and Jax hate each other and its not because of Carly. It stems back to when Brenda and Jax were together in the 90’s. Plus, it could always be his brother Jerry murdering the patients at the hospital. Or, he is the one that got the kidney. Plus he has history with Nikolas, which isn’t so great but could be another good storyline if TC is involved.

@Elizabeth.
Thank you, Elizabeth. I never took the time to check Jax out mainly because the character appeared once since I’ve been watching. I knew he was Joss’s dad, but that’s it.
I don’t know much about Brenda either; only that she’s tied to Sonny….which is not surprising. What is surprising is that Sonny’s potent prowess did not produce any children.
So, as you indicate, there must be s very pertinent reason for Jax return. I have seen him in a couple of shows (Hawaii 5-0) sans the Australian accent. Lol.

LOL, Timmmy. Any enemy of Sonny’s is a friend of mine.

@CeeCee…..Back in the day, Jax was seriously hot…..very much the kind of suit-clad, quintessential fair-haired type with international flair that I so enjoy…..but somewhere along the way, he lost his appeal for me….now his appearances are more storyline than personality bound, at least from my perspective. But he did make Carly bearable during their relationship, so I must give credit where credit is due….LOL.

Celia
Guest

@Shay. I looked Ingo up just to see what he looked like in his youth. Some people do not change much physically, but this guy is almost unrecognizable. Yet, He does not wow me either in youth or now. Again, it’s a matter of taste. Not only am I not attracted to fair haired/complected guys, his features don’t make my heart go pitter-patter. Lol. I know, I know, Shaybelle; you love the Nordic types, such as my brothers….tall and blonde; right? I sound shallow, I know. Looks should not matter; but, the first thing we see is physical appearance. It’s… Read more »

Guest

@CeeCee…..Unrecognizable is a very kind way of putting it! Honestly, I never rated Jax on the top of my favorite daytime hunks list…there were quite a few beautiful blond boys of soaps past that grabbed my fancy to a far greater degree, but at the time of Mr. Jacks’ heyday, there was an ever-increasing dearth of the WASPY European types of leading men on display—and today is quite markedly worse—so one had to be grateful for what little was offered…..LOL. Still, Ingo did have a certain charisma at the time, and his Jax brought an Aussie-style charm to a number… Read more »

This could be a big plus for the show if it is written well. The current writers need to understand that it is not a character’s behavior that is interesting but the motivation behind the behavior. Motivation rooted in past history can be fascinating. Long live GH!

Not a big fan of Jax, but am mildly curious about the origin of Josslyn’s transplant. It will probably source back to Helena, which is a good excuse to resurrect the fabulous Constance Towers’ diva I love to hate. At least we’ll see some great fashions!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, Soaphound. I certainly agree.
If this storyline is cultivated in a realistic and orderly fashion, and not ‘manufactured’ ploys to best suit the writers, it could be very compelling.
I hope ‘they’ do their research and give us an acceptable, reasonable and sensible story.
Oh, and yes; I, also, hope the development of the story is dealt with sensitivity.

@Rose….Whether Alexis really is (God forbid!) pregnant, or (please, please, please….) not, she needs to give those lady parts of hers a rest! This woman has been rode hard by Julian, both figuratively and literally speaking, and it’s about time she learns to enjoy her own company…..or that of a cat, or two, three, or better yet, a houseful!!!!

Rose
Guest

Shay…Agree nothing hot and heavy. But Jax isn’t that kind of guy, plus they were good friends and even married for convenience I think way back when. Let’s just start with dinners, and catch up. A little like Laura and Kevin when the writers let them come out to play.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Rose….Yes, there was that brief “marriage” in name only……and generally speaking, Jax is a stand-up dude….just like Ned, and even Mac! Yet none really did it for Alexis when it came down to the nitty-gritty, right????….I’m just so tired of her sick attraction to evil men….whether in real life or fiction, women like her who make repeatedly poor choices in their selection of such flawed male specimens neither evoke my sympathy nor pity, just utter scorn. As far as I’m concerned, Ms. Davis has had ample opportunity to fall for a nice guy, and that never works…..so I’m not nearly… Read more »

I’ve always liked Jax and I was so excited to hear he was coming back to GH. But there is always that reality that he will most likely be thrown under the bus for Sonny and Carly and used as a plot point to make them look better. How about just letting him fall for someone else this time? Then Sonny and Carly fans can be happy and Jax fans can see him find some happiness with someone who really cares about him and him alone. That would be truly great.

it would not in the least surprise me … if they go this route would GH – dare – to go this route and waste Ingo Rademacher and the audience time… just for – plot – point and to prop Carly and Sonny THIS would the end all or be all…. 1. Sonny and Carly do not look or act like they are in love… Maurice relys “heavily” on Laura Wright to carry this beleaguered and TIRED “couple” I will be PISSED if GH – USES – the much loved and missed Jax Jacks he’s too fine a character… dang… Read more »

Love Ingo/Jax but he’s not staying long term so I don’t think the focus will be on him having a relationship.

KMB
Guest
KMB

Unfortunately you are right Rebecca. There won’t be any time for him to have a decent relationship, but plenty of time for the writers to throw him under the bus for S&C no doubt. Don’t mean to be such a downer, but just going by the show’s history with Jax, it’s hard not to come to any other conclusion.

Hi KMB, thanks for your reply. But I’m not really sure what u mean when u say he’ll be thrown under the bus for C&S. While it’s true Carly left him for Sonny, as she left Franco, etc, Jax has always been his own man, albeit always losing the girl to Sonny. Lol, how anyone xan leave a drop dead, extremely rich, actual great guy with an Aussie accent to boot is beyond me…but I digress. I think his stay will involve Jocelyn and the mysyterious kidney which may tie back to Helena and Jake on Cadsadine Island and hopefully… Read more »

Ingo has many project he is involved in, and really likes.
He doesn’t want a contract/back with GH, but he likes the short stories appearances .
And there is no mob to ”glorification” lol..
I would be very excited if there were a mob..
Sonny and Julian stuff is personal and not mob related.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, su, my friend…..It is absolutely mob related. Every inch of Sonny’s and Julian’s lives is mob related. Alexis would not, herself, be in this predicament it it were not. Yes, Sonny has a vested interest because of Kristina (sp), but, he cannot pretend he does not have a vendetta against Julian directly related to mob-business. His ‘revenge’ (Duke) is peripheral, in my opinion. Sonny has had it in for Julian since forever….and, vice versa. Furthermore, even if we consider it personal, it still points to his and Duke’s involvement with the mob. It’s all about retaliation….the top guy needs… Read more »

LOL Celia 🙂 there is no mob(s).. A mob is more than one man.. Both Julian and Sonny are head of mobs that don’t exist..ahaa! Julian killing Carlos had nothing to with mob business, it was personal to save his own arse. What Julian is doing to Alexis has no mob involvement, again it is personal to save his arse. IF Sonny had an active mob/mobsters that he could boss around he surely would call a hit on Julian and have it over with.. Neither Sonny or Julian have a side, as once was..they both stand alone.

I’ve been watching GH since I was 8, that’s 39 yeas and no other character has EVER stolen my heart like Jax. I just adore the character and Ingo. Glad the kidney story is going to be addressed.

Franco and Nina together are amazing !!! Please end Dillion , Kiki, and Morgan packing. They are all boring !!!! Enough of the Bi-polar story line. Love Hayden and Curtis !! Hoping that Griff is Anna and Duke’s son. Love to see Alexis really pregnant and Julian in prison. Happy to see Sabrina back.

Su, everyone who watches GH knows both Sonny and Julian are mob connected. Since this isn’t The Sopranos or Goodfellas and the soap deals with numerous other storylines, they’re not going to invest in character actors to fill out the mob. We KNOW Sonny is connected, we KNOW he handles mob business and his coffee warehouse exists to make him appear legit, ae KNOW when there’s a meeting he goes or s ends (sent) Jason, Duke, whomever, we KNOW his name is known and he is feared and respected by others offscreen, we know one oh his wives, Lilly, was… Read more »

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
