Ingo Rademacher Returns To General Hospital This Summer!

Fan favorite Ingo Rademacher is bringing his debonaire Jasper Jacks, known to all as “Jax” to ABC’s General Hospital this summer.

According to a rep for the ABC daytime drama series, the actor will return on July 29th for a major story.  And as fans know it looks to be tied to the mystery surrounding whose kidney did his daughter (with Carly), Josslyn Jacks, actually receive! As it turned out that believed donor was little Jake upon his death.  But since the child was revealed to be alive, clearly something else happened, and someone else was the donor that saved Jax and Carly’s (Laura Wright) daughter’s life.

Ingo is back on a recurring basis this time out.

Are you excited to see Ingo back on GH?  What do you think wil happen when he returns? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Never really like him. He will be another body Sonny can bully. [“Candy Boy”] He and Carly will be shoulder to shoulder with this kidney story so that will set Sonny off and it will be the same thing as usual!

Wasnt much of a fan myself but ok with his return-i think!!!

Its good to see a legacy character. So, that is the good news. The bad, like you said, we’ll see.

Harry
Guest

Oh I like him and he makes Sonny look like the small and ridiculous man that he is–which is possibly why MB does not want him to be around.
Moreover, Carly was always at her all time best when coupled with Jax.
I remember when Morgan looked up to Jax as a role model. He is five hundred times the better father, husband and man that Sonny is.

Well he has gorgeous blue eyes and you can understand him when he speaks he needs to come back and take his daughter off the screen since they aged her to be older then all the other brats ! I think this show is struggling and I see them maybe tying up loose ends before they have us cooking with Caitlyn Jenner! Lol

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Beautiful eyes but f’d up hair! My problem is he never stands up to Sonny. Then he takes Sonny’s Brenda and then Carly and now who knows what he is doing or who! I wish he would come back and be strong and knock the grease out of Sonny’s hair! But, he wont.

PS: Prayers for your sister, it has to be tough. Stay strong k.

Harry
Guest

Wait, Timm–Jax stood up to Sonny time and time again. But it was against all odds because the writing afforded to these two nemesis was always slanted in Sonny’s favor. Sonny is the Victor Newman of GH–he always has to win.
Any man who flies into Sunny’s orbit (word play intended) is doomed to either fail or become his faithful sidekick.
Jax is in the AJ club and should be wearing a T shirt which reads,”I Fought Sonny and all I Got was this Stupid T Shirt.”

Soaphound

Soaphound

Agreed, Timm, not a big fan either. Jax always seems to be judging everyone as if he, and his precious Brenda, were SOOOO perfect. Yet another cue ball, Marines-ready haircut besides. Why do they keep chopping off all the male actors’ hair on this show? Nikolas just looks pudgy with his “too short for his face ” hair, and I read another post with the same complaint about Griffin. And of course it should be a crime to keep cutting Billy Miller’s hair so often. Maybe it’s just me..I like old Hollywood glamor on the women AND the men.

Rebecca1
Guest

Oh I agree, Soaphound! I LOVE long hair on guys. I was very disappointed when Matt Cohen cut his hair; beautiful face but I preferred him with his longer, silky locks. Ingo I believe still lives in Hawaii and does a lot of surfing so he might just like to keep it short when he’s skimming the waves. Nicolas? Also very nice-looking but I don’t think his haircut makes him look pudgy…he’s just put on weight.

I wouldnt be surprised if ABC ordered ALL male actors to get crew cuts for budgetary reasons!

Kim, I like Ingo, my problem is he is always Sonny’s doormat. I wish Jax would show up and break down Sonny’s door and announce, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! He won’t, though. Then Jax always gets raked in with his idiotic brother Jerry! Ugg!

Ingo is a GH vet! He deserves the airtime more then a lot of these newbies do. He is connected all around. Alexis and Ned are his BFF, Joss is his daughter, he practically raised Morgan, Liz carried his surrogate for him until she lost the baby. And the love triangle back in the day of Sonny, Brenda Jax was the best triangle ever…

I am thrilled with this news! I always liked Jax. Hearing Brenda is alive … there are also rumors Liz will get a new love interest that will not be Franco and a Jax pairing would totally shock me in a good way. (Please do not be Franco). While I always loved Jax and Brenda together, I kind of like the idea of a romance with Liz as Jax has always treated his women with respect – something Liz needs but I digress. I’d also like to see Brenda and Liz be friends so … there goes that thought. Finally,… Read more »

Patrick…I know you have a crush on Liz for reasons I will never fathom. But recently after the Jason/Jake lie, and currently the snitch-bit*h, holier-than-thou attitude re:Hayden to add to her other bad behaviours over the years…NO to Jax. If anything I’d rather he sweep in and be there for his one time ex, Alexis. And no Brenda either.

Rose, Lizzy is ethereally beautiful and I love her feisty spirit. I get why Patrick has a crush on her.

You said it best Patrick!!

Please bring Robin Christopher’s Skye back..Such a layered and great character played by the amazing Robin, in GH, AMC AND OLTL.

Ingo is a great and underrated actor..So happy Jax is back!! And I agree with you also, that Laura Wright’s Carly was at her best with Jax..Sonny/Carly are a good fit in paper but they have become too 1 dimensional since they have been back together..Not like in the old days.

It makes sense if it’s for the story involving his daughter’s kidney. Glad it’s only recurring; not because of the actor, but because the cast is too big.

This is the best piece of casting news GH has made in a long time. If the show were smart, they would sign Ingo to contract and also bring back Brenda. She and Jax are two characters that were once very important to the show and should definitely still be part of the cast.

“The actor will return July 29th for a major story.”

Translation: Ingo Rademacher will sit on the sidelines with Genie Francis and the rest of the cast as Sonny, Carly, Jason, and Sam suck up all the screen time with their latest major storyline.

I am thrilled to have him back. I just wish GH would get back to basics. Write stories for the characters that we love & get rid of the over bloated cast that we don’t. So tired of the stories where most of the beats are shown off screen. I could care less about half of the characters. I only watch for JASAM now. If they wrote for the vets I would tune in daily. I don’t care about Nathan, Dr. O, Finn, Nina, Kiki, Nurse Amy, Oliva and the list goes on. I won’t stories for the Quartermines all… Read more »

I only watch for Sonny and Carly. Not looking forward to Jax’s return. Another useless character to add to an already over inflated cast. I don’t care what he does as long as SONNY ANDROID CARLY STAY TOGETHER. It’s a deal breaker for me.

Awesome. I can think of about ten characters I wouldn’t mind leaving Port Charles to have more familiar faces back on GH. Give him a contract. Give BA a contract. The show could use Lynn Herring full time too. And now that Laura’s back how about some scenes with Denise Alexander. They could just sit there and talk and I would enjoy it more than the constant glorification of Sonny!

Just because Sonny slept in Morgan’s toddler trundle bed and borrowed his clothes all those years ago doesn’t make Sonny a little guy.
PS. Don’t you remember when Laura Wright’s Carly was married to Jax? They did look good together and Carly actually started to grow up…..finally.
I still remember their yellow decor and the bowl of lemons they had on their coffee table.

I always hated Jax. Still do. I’ll only be watching if Sonny and Carly stay together. Sonny and Carly belong together. She even admitted there was no point in either of them being involved with anyone else, (specifically citing Jaxass) and that Sonny and Carly would always get back together no matter what. Please, please let marriage #5 be their happily ever after. You can put them through all the drama you want, as long as, at the end of the day, Sonny and Carly stay together and happy. If you break CarSon up, all you’re doing is paving the… Read more »

I like Jax, he’s a strong guy with character. I think some see him like a Ryan Lavery type, the role Cameron Mathison played on AMC. Ryan’s character always seemed to lack depth, never got below the surface much. Not so with Jax and his past storylines. Look forward to his return!

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
