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)

Celia
Celia

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.

Timmm

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!

Elizabeth

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.

Celia
Celia

@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.

Celia
Celia

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

Shay
Shay

@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
Celia

@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 natural, albeit it would be idiotic to base a relationship on looks where they become secondary after building a rapport. An out-of-this-world personality and sense of humor are high on my list. Lol.
Ingo is very well liked, as Jax…. I can see that. I hope he sticks around a little longer this time so that I can get to know him a little better.

Shay
Shay

@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 of interesting GH storylines, which is more than I can say for the current Port Charles scene. Plus, if his upcoming return leads to another appearance by that most redoubtable brother, Jerry, then I’m on board….I do so adore Sebastian Roche’ and his devilishly demonic doings!

Sonny and Carly out the wazoo!

I absolutely love jax and the actor who plays him. He has always been one of my faves and I am glad to have him back.

I’ve always been a fan of Jax and I’m glad he’s coming back. I have a feeling that Jerry Jax is the one killing patients in the hospital.

I really like Jax and glad to see him back. Hope he stays around for a while. I’d like to see him get back with Carly.

Franco the donor?…Ava the donor?….Jasper the donor?…Finn the donor?…Roxie the Lizard…the donor?…lol…not interesting enough to care-sorry!!!

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!

I just hope Jax isn’t the one that stole the kidney.

Soaphound
Soaphound

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
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.

I always loved Jax, especially his friendship with Alexis, who sure needs a friend right now. I’m happy to have Ingo/Jax back and look forward to his story.

Rose
Rose

I would love to see him teamed up with Alexis again.

Shay
Shay

@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
Rose

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
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 as inclined as you for her to get an umpteenth chance with a knight in shining armor. Better a more deserving lady like Anna, or as you mentioned, Laura, who may have finally struck gold with Kevin.

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.

Patrick
Patrick

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 it… I loved it when Jax was last on the show… and he had scenes with Skye Quartermaine… she gave him $10,000 to run

GH ! bring back Skye / Lila Rae / and Lorenzo… if not Lorenzo… Jax is thee man

Great comment Patrick. 🙂

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
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.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Oh, just another “drop in,” eh? Sigh!

rebecca1
rebecca1

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 some time with his best friend Alexis. But as u know, he never cowered to Sonny…

Laura
Laura

Always happy to see Jax!

Give him a contract. At least balance the mob glorification with a few characters who are decent. Glad he is back. Hope it’s for a long stay!

su0000
su0000

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
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 to win in order to maintain his status. Normal people do not behave this way. It is a lifetime commitment, no matter how many times Julian promises his wife to quit. Duke dis the same thing. Isn’t that the reason Anna broke it off with him?
And, albeit Anna wanted him back before he died, it was obvious to me that was a ploy by the writers. This is complete idiocy on all their parts. The never-ending Sonny-get-your-gun-story.
Just because we have, as you stated earlier, two guys does not mean there is no mob in PC. They are part of a whole=the mob.
I cannot explain myself as well as I’d like…..but, Harry responded perfectly earlier, to your comment.

su0000
su0000

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.
Sonny use to have a hit man, Jason, now he has zero lol he has no mob.
Julian has no mob
Sonny has no mob
they are two men trying to get even with each other over grudges and it is more personal between them than mob business., no mobsters involved just the older trying to get even with each other, no mobsters involved..

Guza had actual mobsters, actual on screen active mobsters, at least 12 in the cast, now there are none.

the men on DOOL do more murdering and nasty business than Sonny or Julian who are supposedly mobsters with a mob.. ahaaaaa!

I have loved Jax since the first day he appeared on screen! As Lois burst through his office door and he was standing there playing the shoot the ducks arcade game!! 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. I will NOT be happy if JAX had some illegal doings behind the scenes to get Joss a kidney. He’s the shows “white knight” deep down in his core. I don’t want them changing that! New writers tend to mold characters into something that they truly aren’t. #JaxisBack #so happy

Thrilled to hear that Ingo is back on the GH canvas !!! Love, love the new Nicholas, especially with Ava. Hate Franco and Elizabeth !!!!!!!!!!! Liz should be with Finn . 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.

Looking forward to Kristina’s love story. Wherever, it may lead. She is a wonderful actress and deserves a major story line , finally !!!!!!!!!!!!

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 blown up in a mob hit and Michael was shot in a hit. We KNOW the same about Julian. You can repeatedly scoff and correct each time, but they’re in the mob.

Jax no thanks. He never wins. Sonny will be on that high horse again, only way he can look down on anyone , trying to make Jax the fool. Right now Scummy wins no matter what. I win because I have stopped watching.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.
