GH Casting News: Ingo Rademacher Fired! Annie Ilonzeh Out?

Ingo Rademacher (Jax) is leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL. "It is with mixed emotions and regret that I write this note to you, my fans and colleagues," Rademacher says in a statement. "After 15 years on GH portraying Jax I must say goodbye. I'm fired.

"Yes, I know that's sounds bad but sometimes little birds need a shove out of the nest to find their wings... better late then never? I'm trying to find some humor in all this. Even though this was not my call, I think my GH days were almost up anyway."

Annie Ilonzeh (Maya) will be resurfacing on GENERAL HOSPITAL on Monday, June 6, it looks like it will be her swan song at least for the time according to Soaps in Depth. Her CHARLIE'S ANGELS pilot has been picked up by ABC. "The character of Maya Ward is still on our GH canvas," says a show spokesperson. "Although she is being written off for the time being, the door is open for her -- and Annie -- to return."


  1. With the last urbane white knight being fired, there are no heroes to root for by Lucky - and he's not enough. The show's been a disaster for a while now w/ the truly awful stories and destruction of characters - There's just no joy in Mudville - AND Frons promoted a scab. So I'm gone as soon as Jax is.

  2. General Hospital is the last ABC Soap standing, but it's legs are being cut out from underneath it by both the network and it's own show runners. Sadly, GH will be cancelled in the next 18 months. What a waste of talent!
