Ingo Rademacher Biography(Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Ingo Rademacher (born 22 April 1971) is a German-born US-based Australian television actor. He has played the role of Jasper "Jax" Jacks on the American daytime soap opera General Hospital almost continuously since the role's inception in 1996. In 2012, he played Officer Sacks in the film Alex Cross.

Early life

Ingo was born in Iserlohn, West Germany to Arndt and Roswitha Rademacher. He has a sister named Anne. Arndt and Roswitha decided to move the family to Australia when Ingo turned fourteen years of age. Ingo dropped out of the University of Queensland (Brisbane) after six months and began to model. After the modelling stint, he entered the acting profession. His first role was the character of surfer Sean Hayden in the Australian soap opera Paradise Beach. After that show was canceled, he moved to Los Angeles in 1994. His former Paradise Beach co-star, Jaason Simmons, who had appeared on Baywatch, arranged a place for him to stay in Los Angeles.


General Hospital producer Wendy Riche saw his (unsuccessful) audition tape for the soap opera The City and immediately cast him as Jasper "Jax" Jacks. The character, a suave tycoon, has been involved with a succession of General Hospital characters, most notably Brenda Barrett (played by Vanessa Marcil) and Sonny (played by Maurice Benard). However, Jax may have met his match " or his soulmate " when he romances and then marries Carly Corinthos (played by Laura Wright), Sonny's ex and the mother of two of his children. Jax and Carly's relationship has been a passionate and tempestuous one, marked by separations and reunions. Carly's relationship with her ex-husband and his henchman, Jason Morgan, has been the cause of many of the couples' problems; Jax despises Sonny and feels that he and Sonny have put Carly and the children in danger. Jax came close to legally adopting Carly's younger son, Morgan. Together, Jax and Carly have a baby daughter, Josslyn.

During a one-year break from General Hospital, Ingo appeared on the short-lived primetime soap opera Titans. Jax reappeared on General Hospital on August 23, 2012.

Ingo is a contestant on Season 16 of Dancing With the Stars and is partnered with two-time champion Kym Johnson . .
