Ingo Rademacher Returns As GH’s Jax Beginning In May

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Things will get more interesting in the lives of Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and many others on the GH canvas with the arrival back in Port Charles of Jasper Jacks.  That’s because as previously announced, Ingo Rademacher is headed back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise his signature role.

Circle May 7th for when you will see Jax back in action.  According to EW.com. “He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn and ex-wife Carly”   Jax will also share scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) and of course Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Looks like Jax may be back to help out Josslyn in her time of need as her boyfriend Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) final days seem to be drawing near, or does something else also bring his attention back to Port Charles?

It’s been a bit since Ingo played Jax on GH having last appeared on the soap in April of 2017.  Ingo eventually landed the role as the recast Thorne Forrester on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, a part he played till December of 2018.

Back in March, the actor originally from down under shared on his Instagram account: “Won’t be long now.  Just had my fitting. All new look for Jax. Start shooting next week. No air date yet. Stay tuned. Can’t wait!”

I always liked Jax I thought he was a breath of fresh air but still will not bring me back still the Sonny shiw

Goody !
I luv change-up, it keeps things rolling fresh.

I’m used to high octane dilemmas and challenges so anything that will bring something new my way is appreciated.
I can only hope Jax will be bringing some dark excitement with him..

If Jax is in town, can Jerry be too far behind? Seems like they usually show up around the same time, in recent years.

Sebastian Roche was busy for a while being a vampire, poisoning Hitler, and other fun things like that, but I don’t think he’s got any prime time gigs at the moment, so hopefully both of the Jacks brothers will stick around for the summer storylines?

Ingo should be on full time contract instead of Howarth and Easton (Frank’s OLTL pets) but Jax will only be back for one month like all core GH vets. Jax is needed. Franco and Finn are worthless. Liz and Anna are being wasted on Franco and Finn. Both are being misused to create a place for these two dud characters.

Patrick

^^^^^ “… Franco and Finn are worthless ”

two pieces of good for nothing

each of them have been given the yellow brick road to .. daresay I… STARdumb

I have never seen a show give opportunity to so few who would have been canned / fired / let go LONG AGO

Michael Easton :

Role from: March 13, 2012 to March 20, 2013 his claim to fame as McBain.
Role from: May 13, 2013 to August 5, 2015 Dr. Silas Clay
Role from March 21, 2016 to present Dr. Finn

THAT IS 6 FULL Years to have solidified anything !!!! zip zilch nada… he’s especially obvious with Finola Hughes. they look more like much younger brother AND sister. COME On Shelly AND Chris… how staid unimportant and boring this pairing

Roger Howarth :

May 2013 : Franco… Yawn… Frank / Shelly / Chris are idolizing Roger Howarth, to no end. he’s a stifling bore… his histrionics with facial tick AND childlike demeanor… WITH Abstract intent… OKAY Roger. to this day… he still has no connect with any one in the canvas… just like Finn. no one on the cast seeks either of them out. unless its for a miracle cure AND or a substantial donation from Franco to either the city of or general hospital. otherwise these two are ho hum bores.

just not worth mentioning every reason under the sun how much Finola Hughes and Rebecca Herbst are continually CARRYING both Michael and Roger.

very much like Sonny AND Carly… just do not deserve all the airtime . Frank Valentini is killing this show

Hi Patrick, how yah doing?
OK-
We’ll have fisticuffs round LOL
I luv Franco and Finn.. Manly Franco.

Anna is Kook.. she has been suntable for a while now..
If she were in my platoon I’d send her to the infirmary for a mental work up for discharge.

And there is no other more Bland and boring than Elizebeth total wallpaper.

Hey!
if I were writing I’d bring the original Franco back/grow his tumor back, for sure.
And- I’d bring back Silas, a mystery as to/which he really is. ..

SuOOO
I agree with just about all of your comments. I love Franco, and I loved Silas. He was hot and spicy, whereas Finn is just nice, somewhat boring and Anna makes him even worse. I have to disagree with what you said about Liz. There is someone else that fits your description of her. Laura! She is nice but that’s all. Maybe Kevin will really fall for Ava, and Laura and Finn can get together, two peas in a boring pod, right?

su000

hi Violet..
Imagine how exciting and intriguing it would be if all the goody-goody boring guys became gray and a delightful nasty!
I love a bad boy LOL
Franco/Roger plays a bad boy with zest and he loves playing the intriguing bad boy.. GH turned the once vibrant Franco into a powder puff.

And Finn needs to do a 180 and go back to being Silas!

GH has horrible couples, they are all stale, blahhh and dull..
not one, not one couple has an ounce of worth.

Don’t break up Carly and Sonny. They are last good couple from the last good era of GH. Jax should be brought back for good and paired romantically with Ava.

Jax’s appearance is necessary for Josslyn’s sake, Carly’s character was so much more tolerable in relation to Jax.
He kept her real… Their relationship was good when she wasn’t pinning over U know who!! Never understood her
blind devotion to Sonny..
Jax owes Sonny for keeping him out of the country for so long, & not in a good way..

Violet Lemm

Fanny
I agree with you. I like Jax, but with Ava? I never thought about them as a pair. He always had the hots for Brenda too, and yes, Carly has this blind devotion to St.Benard, whose bite scares everyone in PC.

Fanny
Fanny

Violet
Ava is too much for any man long term…bright, beautiful, independent, majorly insecure, manipulative, cunning, devious and ALL ABOUT AVA, ALL THE TIME… Wouldn’t it be a cruel twist of fate… if Kevin & Ava fell for one another during their sting Op to catch Ryan. Where’s that going to leave Laura??? Shouldn’t she be getting a mayor’s office soon???So we can see her working from behind a desk, instead of meandering around town aimlessly.
As for Sonny & Carly’s future we’re probably in for more of the same… boring, repetitive dialogue.
If Jax is here to stay.. and that’s a BIG
if, I hope they do his character justice.

There is one bright spot in the Corinthos house. Their new kitchen! So sick of Sonny’s dark, dreary LR or whatever that room is supposed to be . So masculine. Would think once Carly moved in, they would have redecorated. I know this has nothing to do with SLs, just making an observation.

Fanny
Fanny

Violet,
I hear you and raise you one…regarding the “new kitchen”
Where they will no doubt converge
regularly, until it seems like the only
room in the house. The remaining rooms are dark and equally need to be updated, like you mentioned it would definitely benefit from a woman’s touch.

aria

is this a short visit? or is he back on contract? I hope its the ladder, we need Jax back on full time, Ingo deserves it as much as Steve Burton, so I hope he stays, and has someone w/ him, and he’s not panning for boring Carly.

Jimh

He will play Ryan Chamberlain wearing a Jax mask-ok kiddidng -lol

If ReRon were still writing this show, that is exactly what would happen!

I mean come on !!!! as all of the Corinthos’ are full steam ahead… looking for any thing to bring Shiloh down. you’ve got Sonny henchs; you’ve got the polish commish team on this; you’ve got Dr. hottie Neil ready to perform an excorcism; hell even Alexis is remaining staid .. no matter how pent up her needs . Yawn , all the while Sam who is so besotted over that she is in the running for GODDESS of day of dawn. even General Hospital is running drug laced tests on their communion.

Maxie AND Peter : dag! this couple along with Anna AND Finn… are seriously thee MOST BORING pairings EVER. let’s ADD Michael and Sasha ! LOL. Sasha seriously likes him ? here’s hoping her “honesty” will not spiral Michael.

HELLO – all points bulletin… calling Diane to the set; calling Dr. Neil to the set

Dr Neil and Diane
Laura and Kevin
Brad and Lucas
Ned and Olivia
Mac and Felicia
Scotty and Ava and/or Lucy

^^^ this is coupledom

I can’t blame Ingo for taking a job that’s offered to him, but it can’t be very satisfying to have Jax be shuffled in and out of town and relegated to being Sonny’s punching bag–because as we all know, Sonny Must Never Lose or Be Allowed to Suffer Any Lasting Consequences; that’s on the law books in Port Charles. I always liked Jax, and if his relationships (particularly with Sonny) were allowed to evolve at all, it might be good to have him around again. But I know that won’t be allowed to happen, and he’s just going to be Sonny’s whipping boy once more; Jax will attempt to bring rationality to some situation or make some perfectly reasonable request, and it will be written as Jax attempting to destroy Sonny’s world because Sonny isn’t getting exactly what he wants, exactly when and how he wants it–Sonny Good, Jax Bad. It’s boring as heck.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
