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.

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.

OMG! Bernadette please stop with the Qanon nonsense. Pay VERY CLOSE ATTENTION- people ARE DYING from Covid. The powers that be at ABC Daytime are allowed by law to set the conditions for employment.

Did it NOT occur to YOU that other actors on the show told the producers of GH that they would not appear in any scenes with unvaccinated Ingo and Steve? As for losing a ton of views-my grandmother and aunts don’t care if you stop watching the show.

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.

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.

Brenadine’s last sentence would get her suspended from other platforms or at least marked with a falsehood disclaimer.

I agree; I don’t know why Michael allows disinformation here. I pointed that out before. It’s one thing to have a different opinion; it’s another to give false info about the vax and the virus.

Resulting in…

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.
