Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

Photo: JPI

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.

Ingo coming back will only happen if he fully vaccinated, there is a story line for him and if GH wants him back at all.

Politics and vaccination withstanding, Jax should’ve departed a while ago. Other than being there for Joss, he serves little purpose.

If the vaccination wasn’t an issue, They could’ve easily bumped Ingo to recurring.

So, Jasper Jacks, welcome to the Port Charles never-to-be seen father club. Jeff Webber, Frisco Jones and Lucky Spencer have a space for you at their table.

Steve, I agree with your comments. No surprise there… Many times over the years, I have wished for the return of Jeff Webber. Maybe on the series finale, someone will mention him…

Hey Jamesj… 😉 They have mentioned him. Remember recently Liz got a call from him…then tore up a pic of him. Seems to me he may be heading back.

I wish the circumstances were different because Jax is a great character and Ingo does a good job portraying him, but alas that is not the case. It seemed like a pretty final exit for the character, given that he said he wouldn’t be returning anytime soon. I’m just glad they didn’t kill Jax off. Let’s hope Jason doesn’t meet that grim end either if the rumors are true about Steve Burton’s impending exit (which I hope they’re not)!

Anti vaccine, transphobic. Who would want to be around him and work with him? No one that I would want to know.

Ingo has come and gone a lot over the last 20 years on General Hospital I have a feeling that he will be back one of these days because I hear the mandate has been lifted on ABC they’re not making people get the shot anymore as I feel getting the shot is a personal thing

The mandate is suspended for Disney World in Florida because of state law.

Ingo’s ignorance knows no bounds. So glad to see him removed from the GH canvas. Hey pal… go become a full-time lifeguard and do something worthwhile instead of spreading your noxious bile.

The reason I like Jax is that he tells Carly off! He’s almost the only one who tells her she’s wrong which she is 100$ of the time. She is so incredibly self-righteous and awful. She puts her children in danger every single day and somehow doesn’t see this as a problem. She is selfish, a terrible mother and a horrible friend. She puts Jason ahead of everyone, including her precious Sonny. Jax points all of this out, which makes him for me a valuable character, since almost everyone else enables Carly (and Sonny) on a regular basis. As far… Read more »

I hate he got taken off for standing up for his constitutional right to choose. That doesn’t make people anti Vaxers it’s just saying what we have been hearing for a while “My body my choice”

It’s really a tragic ending to a character that began with a thunderbolt of energy. They didn’t even care enough to write a dramatic ending. Oh well…

I personally like him on this series but he should understand one thing imagine if his newborn daughter contracted coronavirus from someone thru him,I wonder how he would feel if anything happened to his daughter how would he feel? Would he believe in shots????

The problems I have with this is: since fully vaccinated people can still get sick how does this policy make any sense? Also: why do the other three shows not have a vaccine mandate? I can see both sides of this. I am fully vaccinated, by my own choice, but I know people who honestly don’t believe in vaccinations – it’s a slippery slope and I can see both sides of it.

Steve

Those vaccinated individuals who get breakthrough cases are far more likely to have minor symptoms than those not vaccinated. The opportunity to pass along the virus in an environment of fully vaccinated people is exceptionally smaller than a mixed crowd.

GH is fully owned by one corporation (Disney). The other soaps have a combination of entities (Sony, Corday, Viacom/CBS, Comcast/NBC) involved in production/distribution. Not as easy to dictate policy in that environment.

I always have liked the character, but after the Nina story arc he’s been lost. I don’t pay attention to anyone’s political affiliations, I’m here for the characters not the actors. Hopefully he’ll return when there is a good story for the character, maybe involving Brenda.

Shame on California, shame on GH and Shame on Nancy Grahn for pushing this Vax mandate… especially since it doesn’t work!!!
Ingo is better off as he was not being used well anyway.

GH will be off the air soon. They are making very poor decisions firing Ingo and Steve. They can go to another soap on networks that don’t require vaccine mandates. Many GH fans will follow.

No we won’t. I’m not going to stop watching a show for two guys who are doing nothing to help stop the spread of this virus.

I liked his character, but he made the choice to leave his cush job over a little vaccine where in the US … 440 million jabs have been done.
My grandfather worked in coal mines to support his 3 children?? What a wimp! How old is he??

I thought it was a normal exit for him as he always traveled between Australia and Port Charles for business as Jax. Maybe he’ll be back one day, who knows. I’ll miss him, curious to see if they’ll replace him eventually.

Ingo = Anti Vax

Resulting in…
GH & many viewers = Anti Jax

Breaking News

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
