A few weeks back I reported on my personal Twitter page that two actors would be let go by summer's end and it wouldn't be by their own choosing despite how it would be presented by the show. The firing of Ingo Rademacher was not one of those people I alluded to. In an official statement released to ABC Soaps In Depth on their website, the actor said "After 15 years on 'GH' portraying Jax I must say goodbye. I'm fired."
