Ingo Rademacher Announces His Departure From The Bold and the Beautiful

Photo: JPI Studios

Fan favorite, Ingo Rademacher took to his Instagram on Saturday to deliver the news in his own words that he is finishing up his run as Thorne Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, because he has decided not to renew his contract.

Rademacher, who became soap-famous as Jasper “Jax” Jacks on General Hospital had taken over the role of Thorne in 2017, when Winsor Harmon was replaced.

The actor, who has been in Hawaii with his family, says he will be back in the New Year to finish up his final episodes at B&B before he departs.

Ingo’s Instagram message read: “My Bold and Beautiful status. It is true what you are hearing and I think it’s time to set the record straight. I have decided to not continue with my contract on The Bold and The Beautiful and I’ll be finishing up my last episodes in January.  I want to thank Brad Bell (we’ve been communicating) the entire show and cast (truly awesome people) and also CBS for a fun year of playing Thorne.  We are parting on good terms and with the possibility of a return.  We shall see what the new year brings.  Yes I have been in Hawaii for the last 2 month with my family working on my property and will continue to stay here throughout January but then it’s back to LA.”

So, what do you think about Ingo’s exit from B&B?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Back to LA, huh Ingo?

Could that mean that a return to GH is on the way?

I know he wasn’t a big fan of the regime when he left the last time, but I believe that was more due to ReRon’s horrible writing, just as it was with Steve Burton (who has since returned), Tony Geary, and other long time GH vets who walked away before they finally canned that hack writer.

Not sure if he gets along with Frank Valentini – the other half of the trainwreck that hit Port Charles in 2012 – or not. But if he’s back in LA, it must be for work, and I don’t see him turning up on Days as long as ReRon is writing.

One thing I do NOT want to see is another Sonny/Carly/Jax triangle.

I doubt he will return to GH…as Jax is not a serial killer. The show is currently SO top heavy with serial killers. They have Ryan, Franco, Sonny, and Jason. Four serial killers on any canvas makes for a dark, depressing show. Ava has had sex with three of them…including another serial killer, Paul Hornsby. This show really needs to get OFF of redeeming multiple murderers. Its not interesting, it is in no way even close to realistic that any town would have THAT many killers running around loose. Its not entertainment…it is disturbing.

Sonny & Jason are NOT serial killers. They are mobsters. While murder occasionally happens in the mob world, they don’t kill simply for the sake of killing, don’t take pleasure in it (as Ryan obviously does) or think of it as some twisted form of “art” (as orignal Franco did – Frodd is a pathetic substitute for him, but that’s a whole other argument.)

Sure you could make an argument that “murder is murder”. But neither Jason or Sonny ever killed somebody that wasn’t a threat to themselves, their families, or their business. That doesn’t fit the definition of a serial killer.

Ava and Liesel or NO better than Sonny and Jason!

No matter who played Thorne, it seems like that he (Thorne) never is a permanent fixture of the show…so who will Katie pair up with next? There never is any long time story except for a select few and we all know who I am referring to…

Even though I long ago gave up on “B&B,” I must note that the only Thorne that ever really rang true for me was Jeff Trachta’s version. At least he was not one-dimensional and displayed an entire range of emotions….plus, how he could sing! (Then again, I admit I was already partial to the actor based upon his “Hunter Beldon” character on “Loving!”) Having said that, the original Thorne, aka Clayton Norcross, was oh, soooo easy on the eyes!!! But the poor guy couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag… such a pity!

Saw this from a mile away. He never did seem like a good fit. But I wish him the best of luck.

Just as long as he doesn’t return to GH. It’ll mean more Sonny and Carly stories, probably including Brenda. Now THAT could make me a full-time fast forwarder! Also, it must be nice to just decide to “not renew my contract” when so many people are clamoring for work. I’ve never been fortunate enough to make that decision.

Debra

He was always a better fit with Carly. They show to damn much of Sonny and Carla. I am sick of them. They need to bring Jax back.

Lisa

Hmm I wonder if he’ll come back to GH again ? It looks like Sonny is going to slip off the fidelity wagon – so maybe Jax will come back to pick up the pieces.

General Hospital EP Frank V. this is your Q to get JAX back on the show.
Carly & Jax were always better suited
for each other…than Sonny & Carly.. shake it up!

I agree. Love Jax.

Violet…I’m with you on this. Loved him on GH, especially his early days on the show…humor and romance…later standing up to Sonny (but I’m not interested in seeing Brenda back, or picking up again with Carly, but Josh could use her Dad there full time..before writers turned to the darkside making a diet of sad, serial killers, dreary stories. And even the more violent ones that included Jax’s brother and Helena/Cassadines didn’t seem as gruesome and so sick, but also had a sense of mystery. And maybe it’s because there is now so much of this in the news. But I don’t like so much in my soaps. Even JT on Y&R, while outliving it’s time, has a bit of “humor” because it is so outlandish, and there’s the unholy alliance of ladies who mostly don’t like each other.

Ingo really never captured my heart. Is there going to be a Katie/Brooke showdown for Stallion dollar bill?

Loopy

I’m with you. She’s another one who brings nothing to the show and her being pregnant is nauseating. You would think no woman ever had a kid before her

And i thought Ingo did a good job playing Thorne. I wonder if they’ll recast or rest the character for a little while.

Again!!!!! He comes and goes with the seasons

I am not surprised. He wasn’t properly utilized. That’s the problem with B&B, they hire established actors and do nothing with them. All the best to him!

Barbara

Boy do I agree. A waste of his talents. I thought this will be great and they gave him nothing. Sad to lose him. Wonder how they will write him off for poor Katie! B&B you gotta wise up throwing cast members down the tubes!

I wish him luck in his future..he will be.miss..good luck

When is he coming back to GH?!

Debra

I only started watching B&B because of Ingo. I never had an interest in the show. However l couldn’t connect with him as Thorne l loved him to much as Jax. Thorne with Katie l saw no chemistry. Not sure if l will continue to watch know that hes leaving. They won’t use Aaron D. Spears much, l give up there. I love Don,but one man can’t always run the show. Sick of Hope and Brook with Steffy talking about Kelly and Hopes child and Liam being spineless. One Ingo exit will remove it from my DVR unless l see something with Aaron Spears.

Mark Y

The role bored him to quitting.

I’m not surprised. Maybe he hated the way his character was written as much as I did. The God’s honest truth is that I DVR the show and then fast forward to the very last segment as that is where anything that will actually advance story happens. The remainder of the show consists of endlessly repeated dialogue, retreaded scenes, flashback montages, establishing shots and the same 6 characters. The only question is whether the show will bother to explain Thorne’s absence or if he will just disappear one day and wind up wherever Sheila, RJ, Coco, and others are now.

He added nothing to the soap, and it was horrible how they replaced Winsor Harmon. I will not be sad to see him go.

Patrick

NOT one thing was said about Thorne and/or Ingo during “his” one year tenure

so be it

NOT one thing.. be it in SOD or on this site

He’s gone

the only thing that was…. Windsor Harmon personal plight

who could possibly bring back the memory of ^^^ his last visit @GH .. watching Ingo flounder around in bed with laura wright as she smothered him… lastly burying any thing good between them. what magic Carly ever had… ended in 2012 when @GH fired Ingo.

Momo

I doubt Winsor will be asked to return. He seems to have some issues he needs to take care of. They didn’t give Thorne much of a storyline. So now what? Thorne and Katie are married. Will he be relegated to the basement now, never seen and just mentioned in passing?

Iakovos
Iakovos

Why is it B&B cannot find something wonderful to do with the Thorne character? He and Macy were a wonderful storyline. Then circumstances and choices decimated everything Thorne ever was able to build for himself. I do not find Ridge a hero in any way. Thorne had the more interesting story arcs.

Timmm
Timmm

Everyone is probably excited he may return to GH. Well, IF its full time YES! If its a stunt, FORGET it! I could see Sonny fall for Margo and Carly would be free to be with Jax if she can release herself from Jason! Joss would love to have her mom and dad back together!

Loopy
Loopy

So sorry to see him go. I liked him and I loved him with Katie. Why are all these people coming and going so fast. They need to get rid of the ones who do nothing in or for the show. Dump Zoe and her father. Neither of them is attractive in any way shape or form and bring nothing to the show….then again maybe her father will take Taylor far far away and we won’t have to see either one of them again.

I also think Liam should just live with both the women and they can be sister wives.

Nik

He did the same thing to General Hospital. I saw his movie over the Christmas season on ION TV with a few other soap stars from ABC and it was OK. Perhaps he wants to make TV movies since they won’t tie him down

Patrick
Patrick

did any one catch : Lifetime w/Laura Wright ? ratings for cable that night : “stalked by my patient ”

her show was rated #117 out of #150 shows that night.

??? I hope this is indicative of her “want” to STAR in graveyard Lifetime movies, forever more. Yawn

Torrey

Kind of hard for fans to really develop anything for his version of Thorne, when the whole show revolves around Hope/Liam/Steffy……and Brooke’s need to try and insert herself in every situation. I haven’t watched in a while cause I got sick of the never-ending love triangle. B&B needs to hit the reset button and start telling stories that involve the other characters on the show. This show is so one dimensional!

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
