Biography

A handsome, German-Australian actor, Ingo Rademacher went from playing a surfer on "Paradise Beach" (Nine Network, 1993-94) to becoming one of the world's most popular soap studs, the aggressive Aussie Jasper "Jax" Jacks on "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ). Winning two Soap Opera Digest Awards and daytime stardom for his supercouple romance with Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil), Rademacher jumped ship in 2000 for a plum role on Aaron Spelling's short-lived "Titans" (NBC, 2000), but soon returned to "GH" where he remained until 2011. Phasing himself out slowly, Rademacher left the show as a series regular but returned frequently for guest spots while also branching out with TV roles on such shows as "Hawaii Five-0" (CBS, 2010- ) and in feature films, including a supporting turn in the thriller "Alex Cross" (2012). A highly decorated and devoted amateur athlete, Rademacher moved to Hawaii in 2012 to focus on his training and competitions, but made millions of hearts flutter when he signed on for "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ) as the partner to his fellow Australian, Kym Johnson. Athletic and effortlessly charming, Ingo Rademacher remained a sexy favorite with many daytime fans, decades after his soap debut.
