Ingo Rademacher’s Mes­sage For A New Jax!

GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL fan fa­vorite Ingo Rademacher tells Soaps In Depth that he wasn’t nec­es­sar­ily looking to swap shows, but now that he’s been tapped to play THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’s new Thorne, he’d have no hard feel­ings about Jax be­ing re­cast!

The In Depth Story: When the GH vet moved his fam­ily back to the main­land from Hawaii ear­lier this year, there was hope we’d see even more of Jax in Port Charles. And we did, for a spell. “We came back in Jan­uary so my wife could be closer to the fac­tory for her cloth­ing line, Mahiku,” he sets up. “We weren’t shop­ping me around the day­time shows. I was just go­ing out for au­di­tions, and I was work­ing pretty much non-stop. It was GH, then it was HAWAII FIVE-O [where he re­curs as pros­e­cu­tor Robert Cough­lin], then back on GH. There wasn’t much of a break in be­tween.”

Dur­ing his last visit to Port Charles in April, how­ever, Sonny had Jax de­ported… and that was that. “I hadn’t heard any­thing from them,” Rademacher ad­mits. So he kept hus­tling. Flash-for­ward to this sum­mer, and an of­fer came from B&B that he couldn’t refuse. “It’s not like I was

out looking for a con­tract role on a day­time show. I was wide open to ev­ery­thing. This came along, and we worked it out.”

Now that he’s head­ing to the CBS soap to take over a char­ac­ter played off and on for two decades by Win­sor Har­mon (Del, ALL MY CHIL­DREN), Rademacher is ready to pass the torch to the next guy to walk in Jax’s shoes, should GH re­cast the role. “They can do what­ever they want over there,” he says with a shrug. “It’s out of my hands. I would wish him luck! What else can you do?”

Rademacher makes his B&B de­but on Mon­day, Novem­ber 27.

Rademacher wasn’t looking to leave GH, it just hap­pened.
