As Ingo Rademacher (Jax) tweeted yesterday, GENERAL HOSPITAL has a story arc that will bring his presumed-dead character back to the canvas for about 3 weeks early in the new year, and the actor exclusively tells Soaps In Depth that his return has actually been in the works for some time!
“We’ve been talking about it for a while,” Rademacher reveals. “When I came back the first time — which was almost an extension of the contract in a way — you couldn’t really call that a “comeback” because there was no real time in between.
The actor remains hopeful that the storyline will leave the door open for Jax to pop back into Port Charles in the future. “[Executive producer] Jill [Farren Phelps] has always been very much upfront with me with this whole thing,” he says. “She’s always had the thought that Jax was going to keep returning.”
