Mini Bio (1)

Ingo Rademacher - Australian Actor is best known for his long-running leading role of Jax on ABC's "General Hospital", Ingo Rademacher. He was a model in Brisbane and Sydney before landing his first acting role playing Sean Hayden on the Australian Series "Paradise Beach" (1993). He made the move to Los angeles in 1994 and almost immediately was offered the role of Jax on GH which he played for 15 consecutive years. He still comes to visit the show now and then much to the delight of his loyal fans.

He has also shown off his comedic abilities appearing on "Veronica's Closet", "According To Jim" and "Clueless" and in Aaron Spelling's "Titans". In the spring of 2013, Ingo danced his way into the the semi-finals of "Dancing With The Stars" partnered with Kym Johnson. He recurs on CBS's "Hawaii Five O" as federal prosecutor Robert Coughlin and can be seen next year in the new STARZ series "Counterpart".

Ingo was seen on the big screen in "Alex Cross".

Born in Germany and moving to Australia as a child, Ingo grew up on a 400 acre cattle and Angora goat station , which best explains his lifelong love affaire with water sports. Starting with racing Hobie cats, he progressed to competing in the Lifeguard's King's Race in Honolulu for 4 consecutive years and then the Molokai to Oahu race - a grueling 32 miles in shark infested waters aboard both a surf ski (2000) and a stand-up paddle board (solo) (2012, 2013, 2014). He was ranked 80th SUP racer in the world in 2014 and continues to race every chance he gets. He was also patrolling beach as a lifeguard in Australia at age 16.

After competing in races in Hawaii almost every year, Ingo bought a home there in 2006 and later met and married his native born wife, Ehiku in 2009. He moved his young family there in 2011 after finishing his GH contract. Ingo has two home-birthed sons, Peanut Kai and Pohaku Zen who are also home-schooled.

The couple started an Activewear company in 2012 (Mahiku activewear Hawaii) inspired by their passion for Stand Up Paddle board racing. The line is made in California so they decided to move back to LA in 2017 so they could be closer to the manufacturing process and to Ingo's first line of work - acting.

Now the family does their best to juggle home schooling the kids, running the Mahiku business going to auditions and traveling. "We have a super tight family unit and are rarely apart" says Ingo. "Los Angeles is the perfect location to pursue all of our interests".
