Ingo Rademacher Officially OUT at General Hospital

Photo: JPI

There is confirmation on Monday afternoon that Ingo Rademacher is out at ABC’s General Hospital in the role of Jasper Jacks.

According to Deadline, Rademacher’s final airdate will be coming up on the November 22nd edition of the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

Soap Opera Digest is reporting that their sources say that the Ingo wrapped his run already last month in October.

 

Ingo has played the role of “Jax” on and off since 1996.  With GH reportedly having a vaccine mandate for everyone that works at the show in place since November 1st, and Rademacher publicly opposed to vaccine mandates, it had been assumed he would no longer be able to remain a cast member on the soap opera.

On Sunday and Monday, the actor came under fire for a re-posting on his Instagram Story from a conservative commentator, who used the word “dude” in conjunction with a photo of Rachel Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health and the first transgender four-star officer.  This drew blowback from his transgender castmate, Cassandra James, and several of his now former colleagues.

In addition, Rademacher has doubled-down on his anti-vax stance, posting on his IG on Sunday, “I will stand with you to fight for medical freedom.”

So, what are your thoughts on Ingo’s departure from GH? Comment below.

Good riddance. He hasn’t had much to do on the show but be annoying anyways.

The reason I like Jax is that he is the voice of sanity when it comes to the obnoxious disgusting vile Carly!!!!! He gives her hell for her insane thinking – she’s always wrong and he’s always right. I hope they find some other character who will stand up to Carly and her bullying and her insanity. She’s so infuriating! So far from annoying, I love Jax, but it is true that he serves no other function on the show.

Steve

The only other character who doesn’t bow down to Carly is Gladys. While she doesn’t have the history with Carly that Jax does, she certainly gets under her skin.

Why would he have to work from home? He has every right as an American do have a job. Maybe, you and your cronies, need to read more instead of just following. There is so much research on the virus, which by the way, is not the only virus we have had. Yet, it is the ONLY one we have targeted. SARS and H1N1 were big viruses, yet nothing was done and people weren’t scared the way the government is making us feel. We all have a God given right, to do as we please, unless it breaks a law.… Read more »

This is a highly contagious virus, this latest variant way more contagious than the original, that has killed over 750,000 Americans! Are you one of the “patriots” who weep for the 3,000 we lost on 9/11, yet seem to dismiss the loss of over 750,000 lives, many of whom could have been saved if many of those same “patriots” had even worn a mask!

Michele mimi…And I have a right to feel safe where I work. That means truth of having had vacs. Add to this face masks and social distancing where they apply. Just because the US is a democracy don’t mean we have the right to always do as we please. What if we all did or said what we pleased any time we wanted. CHAOS! We have put limits on other things…like seatbelts. So his choice to no-vac comes with consequences in favor of safety and health considerations for the many.

So my post was edited to exclude my first statement on what I thought about Rademacher, which was not vulgar yet was frankly blunt and appropriate under the circumstances — and it conveyed my opinion. So, let me rephrase and expand; and maybe this will be published in its entirety: Rademacher’s stance is idiotic, misinformed, selfish, and dangerous. Like Aaron Rodgers, Rademacher is not a team player. So Bon Voyage! I am angry that people (including the misinformed Adele on this page) continue to spread lies about the vaccine. Our world is still being affected by this virus. Our own… Read more »

Jamesj75…Plus Arron Rogers lied about taking the vaccine when he hadn’t. One of his major sponsors has dropped him. I wish his team’s owners would socially distance him on the bench for the rest of the season, and then get rid of him. So far the NFL hasn’t taken much of a stand. Says a lot about them.

Jamesj75
Guest
Jamesj75

Rose, thank you for expanding on the Aaron Rodgers situation. You’re absolutely correct. I would be surprised if the NFL does the right thing, as you outline. As most Republicans in Congress/Senate are too afraid of their voting base to do or say the right thing, the NFL is too afraid of its fan base to do the right thing. To think that the producers of a daytime soap (GH) actually have the moral clarity to lead the way, whereas others do not, is astounding.

rose
Guest

Astounding, yes, but for me more heartening for those of us who have invested so much of our time into soaps, their stories and actors. We as fans are always trying to work out best, high-road solutions to what the writers, and in Ingo’s case, dish out. And mostly in a civilized manner.

You are so right but I’m not so sure that those others are actually lying. I see it more as just being uneducated and ignorant. I don’t know that they have the brains to lie, especially about something they don’t understand or know anything about. OMG, now I sound like an idiot( favorite word of the day), does any of this make any sense?

Jamesj75
Guest

So glad to read your reply, Violet. You definitely make sense and great points. Ignorance could be part of the problem. I think that a certain ex-president, other certain politicians, and a certain cable “news” channel are eagerly dispelling the disinformation, much the way FaceBook does, and these people are buying what they’re selling. Best to you, Friend!

What a complete disappointment Ingo has turned into. His idea of “medical freedom” puts everyone he comes into contact with at “medical risk.” No-vac and probably no masks may be okay for him, but only if he takes an isolation vacation from everybody else and stays home with his family. And then selfishly lets everyone else who followed the safety rules do the hard work to help get some kind of control over covid.

Here goes: I have problems with actors losing their jobs for having different political views. The other 3 broadcast soaps do not have vaccine mandates – I honestly don’t know if they should or not but I do think that Ingo has a very strong case for a lawsuit against GH on this matter. I disagree with lots of actors as far as their political views are concerned but I do not believe they ought to be fired for their views or for their tweets (I know that isn’t the reason Ingo was let go but it’s a point I… Read more »

Richard…You make some interesting points. One of the reasons I don’t want to know too much about favorite actors in case I’m disappointed by some of their views and/or politics. But when some of their views and politics endanger other people they work with. Or the healthcare professionals/systems at all levels left to work their buns off to clean up some of the messes no-vac/face-masks/social distancing persons engage in because of their selfish reasons, this is where their freedom crosses the line with me regarding everyone else’s safety and health. Pooh on them!

Great points here. I agree with disagreeing on political views, which is why I try to dissociate the actor from the character. I love watching Sheila on B&B but listening to Kimberlin Brown’s RNC speech a few years ago was really hard to stomach. I try to just appreciate the art and the rest is noise. As for Ingo, it also seemed like he was causing some tension on-set with his being outspoken about the vaccine mandate.

Y&R got rid of they guy that played Chance. Abby (Melissa O) looked at him like he had major cooties and was always 6 feet away from him. I suspect that the actors at Y&R are all vaccinated, so there is no need for discussions. It is NOT a political issue. 194 million folks in the US have been fully vaccinated, so it is not partisan. Ingo & Steve Burton were both gone for years, and no one really cared. Funny, they each have 3 kids and need to support their families, yet are not getting a life saving vaccine.… Read more »

Hey Timmm, your former president would be very proud of that unhinged, totally off topic, nonsensical rant.

The story is about Ingo and what he said and did, and you go on a diatribe about NLG and bring up Alec Baldwin, which has absolutely nothing to do with this topic. And your attempt at, I don’t even know, what appears to be a warning or threat to Nancy by using what happened to Baldwin, and somehow tying that into the fact that he criticized the former president is honestly really disgusting.

When Viola won and accepted her award she spoke about the lack of roles for black female actors and Nancy tweeted, “None of us get respect or opportunity we deserve. Emmys aren’t the venue 4 racial opportunity. ALL women are belittled.” Nancy’s was thinking about lack of roles for all women (perhaps of a certain age; dunno)…which was taken wrong.

Hi Timmm 🙂
The bottom line is;
It is ABC policy/rule to get vaccinated or leave..
It’s simply that simple.
They are given 2 choices; vaccination or leave.
He chose to leave. It was his choice.
That is all there is to it.
How he felt about a vaccination did not matter.

Alec Baldwin didn’t go on a “hate campaign”, he played a character on SNL. It’s comedy. Hell, I wasn’t always happy with Larry David’s portrayal of Bernie Sanders on that show, but it’s satire, it’s comedy. It’s not anything resembling hatred. Now referring to a trans woman as a “dude”? That’s hateful

As for Alec’s current troubles…. not his fault. Most likely a horrible job of handling guns that SHOULD have been empty, committed by scab crew members.

Everyone should have the right to dictate what goes into their bodies; we don’t need a mandate for that. This is a choice that every adult should be able to make. If we allow ourselves to governed by mandates; where is the democracy in that? All of us here have voiced our opinions but is it right for us to condemn others for what they believe or not believe?

right to have an opinion…as long as you are spreading your opinion and choices with medical/scientific facts when you use the wildfire of social media, okay. But that is not always the case and puts others at risk. So “no,” pardon me if I don’t respect those who give up something when they spread untrue or nasty things on their tweets, etc. To play on a favorite phrase of mine from Peter Parker’s advise to son SpiderMan….”With great power (ie: the reach of social media from names people recognize) comes great responsibility.” Be very careful what our democracy allows.

In this day and age the prejudice still against transgender people, gay, black, etc. it mystifies me because people are people regardless. I have friends in every color and yes I have known quite a few transgender not only male to female but also female to male. He needs to get life go back to Australia and take his horse dewormed medicine and shut the hell up. He’s a disgusting person and right wing radio are everywhere and this causes more problems then solutions.

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.”

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”

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.

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.
