Ingo Rademacher comments on status with General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

So is the talented Aussie, Ingo Rademacher (Jax) still with GH on contract, recurring, or what else could be going on?  Soaps In Depth spoke with Ingo to get the low down since Jax has seen much less airtime.

Rademacher offered up these statements, “I’m not on recurring. I’m a contract player. If I was recurring, I would certainly say so if that was the case. There’s nothing to hide there. I cannot talk intelligently about where they’re going with my character because, if I’m there to stay or not, I really don’t know. I’m not holding my breath about this next storyline that I, apparently, have coming up in a little bit. I haven’t worked a frontburner storyline since last August, I think it was. To be honest, I’m just doing my thing up there right now. If I don’t work more, then the writing is on the wall.”

Fans were a little perplexed, as was Ingo, with his lack of scenes and airtime during the recent crisis with his on-screen daughter, Josslyn, whose life was spared via a kidney transplant from a brain-dead little Jake!  Only time will what the future holds for Jasper Jax!

The entire Jake storyline has left me with a bitter taste. It was rushed, they didn’t show a memorial, Jason didn’t even go to the memorial, and the aftermath has focused on the wrong people. Jax should have been a major part of all of it, and to read this about Rademacher is upsetting. The show needs to focus on veteran characters like Jax, not put them on the sidelines. He’s a great character and should have been given a major POV in the story involving his daughter and Jake. He and Elizabeth are friends. I don’t get this show.… Read more »

I agree 100%. I couldn’t believe they didn’t show the memorial for Jake. I thought I missed an episode or something. They were all talking about it the one day, and then the next day, everyone was talking about it like it was over, and I was like “Wait, did I miss something?” They spent weeks and months with the silly Balkan storyline, and the Jake storyline was over in a couple of days. Granted, Jonathan Jackson, Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton, Tony Geary, and everyone involved in it did fantastic work. But they could have gotten so much more out… Read more »

I agree, they should definetely keep Jax/Ingo and I can’t believe we didn’t see much of him during the whole Jake/Josellyn storyline made no sense. Anyhow, I use to love his character when he first came to town and still really enjoy watching him though the writers have really changed his character over the past years. Nevertheless, I really like Ingo and wish the writers would give him a good storyline. Though I’m not holding my breath about the Brenda and Jax storyline that we’ve been told about but I’m really hoping that it does happen because these two have… Read more »

I think the reason why there was no memorial was the stuff with RH being fired and then rehired. I think they really did a rush cut and paste job with the storyline. I truly believe it wasn’t the original story on how Elizabeth was exiting and so they had to rework some things and so that’s why it was fast because they would have had to get the whole cast together for a memorial where if they did it the way they did, it only involved getting a couple actors at a time so they could slip in scenes… Read more »

Jax is one of GH’s great veteran characters just like Nikolas and Elizabeth …it appears that GH (Fron/Guza/Jill Farren Phelps) do not respect these talented and long loved characters. They do not treat the actors with the respect they deserve. Look at how they treated Rebecca Herbst …thanx for 13 yrs of great performances and two super couples …fired! Then the fans wouldn’t have it and they had to take her back. Apparently this decision was from Frons, Guza denies wanting RH fired …fans had to take a stand. Take a stand for Ingo fans …fans have loved Ingo for… Read more »

I agree. They need to get rid of the newbies and keep the VETS. I am sooooooo happy for Becky Herbst because she is one awesome lady. They are getting rid of the vets to accomodate the newbies and its not fair. I love Ingo and I would love for him to have more airtime. I love the chemistry with Jax and Sonny (Maurice Bernard).

I don’t care too much for Jax character right now, so I hope he gets a change of a woman soon. My alltime favorites are JASON AND SONNY– so they better never leave- they make that entire soap, and my fan husband agees 100% !!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
