Ingo Rademacher Back To General Hospital As Jax

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

What a fun reveal by General Hospital and Ingo Rademacher!  And with that, look who’s coming home to Port Charles?  Hot on the heels of his stop over at The Bold and the Beautiful where he took over the role of Thorne Forrester, the GH fan favorite is back at his old stomping grounds.

In the video teaser, Jax and Carly’s (Laura Wright) last goodbye scene plays, which aired the last time Ingo was on GH, and then the camera pans to the back of a man’s head watching the TV

“Oh, come on!  Well, that can’t be the end. Cause it’s not,” says the guy.  In true soap opera fashion, the camera reveals it’s Rademacher who states: “I’m coming back to General Hospital and Jax’s legacy is going to continue in a big way. See you soon.”

So, will Jax be back in Carly’s arms or someone else’s? What will happen when Josslyn (Eden McCoy) reunites with her father?  Will Jax be involved in a major mystery? Share your thoughts on Ingo’s return to GH via the comment section below.  But first, check out the teaser video that contained this exciting cast addition announcement.

Please, GH, don’t AJ him!

YES! I am so happy this is happening. Since it was announced he left the role as Thorne, I was hoping he’d come back as Jax. And, with this, I am hoping that the writers [finally] put him and Carly together in an official capacity, because Ingo and Laura Wright have insane chemistry together!

Please, no. I love Jax. Hate Carly. Would love for Jax (if he’s staying) to find true love with a good woman.

Ha…or, alternatively, would LOVE to see him with Ava which would just KILL Carly!

Ingo and Maura would have combustable chemistry, and would love the pairing of AJax!

That’s because we’ve been over “Carlyized” too much of her is just

Rebecca, I like Jax too, which I feel he does a better job as, than he did as Thorne on B&B.
As far as being with Ava, Ryan deserves her, but not Jax, although Carly would have a coronary, wouldn’t she, ha!

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Hi, Violet…long time. Hope all’s well! I love Ava! I think she’s a complex character with a lot of good and love just waiting for the right person to share it with. I’d take her over Carly ANY DAY!!! But..I was kinda joshin’ about her and Jax. Who knows, though. That would be a kick…and a kick in the arse to Carly which would be the icing on the cake. Scott’s always had a thing for Ava. Ryan? He’s a psychopath/sociopath. Ava does not deserve that. She’s normal…whatever the criminal element in Port Charles is. She’s in no way mentally… Read more »

I knew he would come back to gh, this is great news, hope they do him and the character of Jax justice and not let him be a punching bag for characters like Carly,sonny and Jason. GH should bring Hayden back too, let her come into his universe, it be great to see her back as well.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Oh, I agree, aria. Sonny and Carly’s reign as the judgment of all other beings is beyond sickening. I’d love to see Jax finally get over Carly and move on to a new relationship.

But, I couldn’t stand Hayden. I do like the D.A….she might be a great fit for Jax!

Patrick

Yeah, just what I want… to see Jax flounder around… w/ Carly. thankfully we do not see any sex scenes with Sonny AND Carly.

Whatever they do, PLEASE not Jax and Carly round three or is it four?

I really did like him as Thorne on B&B but am glad he will be back as Jax on GH. It sounds like he will be around for a while. always hated it when he would just pop up for visits.

I called this one a couple months ago, when he said he would only be going “home” to Hawaii for a short time, and then be “back to the mainland for work”.

Hopefully they can write a decent story for Jax and NOT involve the 666th re-enactment of a triangle with Carly & Sonny (or Brenda, for that matter)

Now…. on the other horn…. whenever Jax shows up, his brother Jerry is usually not far behind. Wonder if he’s going to show up next?

Lisa
Guest

That’d be cool, for Jerry to show up and create all kinds of havoc. I’d love to see Roche again.

They already got a triangle with Jason, Sonny and Carly-Jason always been Sonny’s true love!!!!

rebecca1

LOL; jimh. I think you got it right the first time with the triangle. Jason’s co-dependence on the despicable duo is nauseating.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

this is of little to no importance.. dependent on how in the clutches Jax is with Sonny. why would Shelley and Chris lessen the value of the aging kingpin. what’s going on with Margo ? could we really belly laugh Sonny getting jealous of Carly w/Jax.. again ? these old stalwarts, have lost all their luster

save for Jax who was steaming hot with Robin Christopher’ Skye. other wise.. PULEASE for the sake of embarrassment… do not go the romantic route with Carly.

rose
Guest

Patrick…Now that we have found Carly could be pregnant with Sonny’s child, hope this means Jax won’t be teamed up with Carly again. But who? And please not Ava after she finds out Ryan is Kiki’s killer. On the other hand, so far, Sonny isn’t very supportive of Carly having a child because of her age and past health history. ????

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

???? LOL I am just as stumped.. as this is NEWS… Carly having Morgan2 ? this was supposed to be what should have happened to Felicia and Big Mac !!!! in real life Laura Wright is 48 in real life Maurice Benard is 55 argh! does this mean that this boring twosome will lessen up on Avery ? once THEIR child is born ? a playmate for their grandchild , w/so staid Michael’s Wiley? the only WOMAN for Jax : Skye Quartermaine.. w/Lila in tow perhaps Carly being preggers will calm the expletive down. I’m just so over her… along… Read more »

I think Morgan may be on his way back…..but not in the form of Craig.
I may have mis-heard Sonny, but wasn’t he describing Morgan as having a great smile and big brown eyes? Craig has blue eyes.
Why go through the trouble of mentioning Morgan’s eye-coloring ( the wrong color, at that) in such big fanfare if not for an impending resurrection?
I can’t even check back—not on my DVR, any longer.
Just a hunch.

Patrick, I do agree. Skye Chandler was a throwback to Rita Hayworth and I loved, loved, loved her with Jax. They looked so good together. I also have no interest in the Shiloh story and there is way too much emphasis on Victoria Gotti (Christina) lately. She still comes off as a petulant, little brat. Speaking of Victoria Gotti, I did watch that Lifetime series and there is 90 minutes I will never get back. I have no idea why I hung in there. Maybe I thought it would get better but it just got worse. Watching Maurice playing Sonny… Read more »

I’d love for Jax to be completely and forever over Carly…and for them to kill Carly off. As for Jax? I like the D.A. She’s got a tough exterior but a warm, fuzzy side that’s peeked out several times. I think they’d be dynamic together.

rebecca1…what I would really like is if Rena Sofer quit Bold and Beautiful (she’s not getting much air time right now anyway), and moved back to General Hospital as Lois Cerullo/Ashton to pick up with Jax. They were very entertaining as friends/almost couple back when, especially when they arrived at about the same time in Port Charles.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

I don’t see that happening but interesting thought. As for B&B, months back all we saw was Quinn and Eric. I think, but I’m not sure, that John McCook had hip surgery or something and so was off for a bit; perhaps that’s why Rena wasn’t on, as well. But it’s true, they really went from all to nothing with her. Sonny and Ned would go ballistic if Jax wound up with Lois. But, I’d rather see Carly go ballistic so I’m sticking with my DA choice! 😉 Loved Poldark and Outlander this past year. But the wait between seasons… Read more »

rebecca1…It was just a pipe dream. I just miss the kind of humor and “drama” Lois, Jax and Ned brought to Port Charles. Sorry to hear about John McCook if he had this surgery. I’m a vet of it so I know. I tried to get into Outlander this year, but I just couldn’t. Maybe I”ll try again if it’s re-run. But a welcome surprise on Sunday night is that PBS has been running their original Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth, one hr per week. Something to look forward to. Am also liking a re-run of programs called The… Read more »

Outlander has never come close to its first two seasons for me; I haven’t read the books yet so I only go by the TV production…but it was just magical when Claire arrived…a whole new world, century, the original gang of “bandits”…the costumes, galas, intrigue, clans, just a mystical experience. And, of course, the “young” Claire and Jamie and their incredible love story. Escapism at its best. Still, I find myself drawn to the show and engrossed…though not as enchanted. I’ll miss it til it comes round again for the next season. I can’t even begin to list the shows… Read more »

rebecca1…Like you I loved the first few seasons of Outlander, but haven’t gotten into it since they came to America. Love Queen. Will see the movie. Hope Lucifer comes on regular tv since I don’t have netflix. Looking for next Handmaiden and Call Saul. by the way there is a group call Creation that is big on StarTrek conventions, the main one in Las Vegas. They will also be having a Lucifer one as well, and their first GH one coming up.
Oh for unlimited time and money! :))

Ingo Rademacher/Jax is back!!
Awesome- I needed that!
OK- I need to be a GH character and have 6 hot hot and hotter sex scenes with him; make it happen LOL..

How long will he actually stay?
Forever is not long enough!

Only downside- he will be with Carly, not good not good at all 🙁

Rebecca, you may get your wish, but in another way. I have read several items, that claim she is not pregnant but has ovarian cancer, which can mimic pregnancy. We’ll see.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

I heard those rumors, too, Violet, but it seems the pregnancy was confirmed by Kim on Friday. Can only hope Carly loses it…the thought of another mini Carly on the show is cringe-worthy. I honestly don’t know that the writers are thinking. They should be growing the Spencers and the Quartermaine’s…not more obnoxious Carly’s.

Oh how I wish they’d write her and that sneer plus giggle off the show.

Suoo is like escargot–you have to develop a taste for her. I like SUOO–she’s like me in that she loves and hates fictional characters passionately. There is no middle ground with her. We seldom agree on whom we love or hate but I appreciate that she so adeptly separates fiction from non-fiction. It took me awhile to learn to appreciate her as she used to really push my buttons, But I think I get her now and I am always happy to see her here as I am happy to see you, Miss Nancy.

So was this already in the works when he decided to leave B&B? Kinda feel duped. Not that he was doing anything much on B&B so can’t really fault him for leaving. Once he married Katie, Thorne’s storyline disappeared. It’s like Brad doesn’t know what to do with Thorne.

Lew S.

It seems Brad doesn’t know what to do with any of the characters, except Ridge, Brooke, Bill, Steffy, Wyatt and Hope. I have never seen a show with so many back-burned characters.

My prediction is that Carly will be all tingley for Jax when he first returns. Sonny and Margo will start talking more often and that will inflame Carly. But what will really be the focus of his return will be when Jax becomes involved with Margo; sending both Carly and Sonny into a tailspin. LOL!

I mentioned that several times above. I would love a Jax/Margaux thing. I actually like her…and if it drives Carly more insane than she already is that’d be the icing on the cake.

Harry

I cannot stand Margaux! I like Elizabeth Hendricks but I hate this pointless, stupid pipsqueak of a character. GH writers need to get a clue on what a DA actually does. I will tell you what DA’s don’t do. They do NOT prance around the police station in six inch heels acting like they’re police detectives. Margaux was inappropriately gleeful when Franco was arrested acting like an insensitive, unprofessional mean girl to Lizzy

Ingo’s statement, “I’m coming back to General Hospital and Jax’s legacy is going to continue in a big way. See you soon.” Could it be somehow that Carly is pregnant with his child?

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

Photo: YouTube

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Watch Arlene with Phillip Carey in scenes from OLTL below.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

 

Photo: JPI

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.
