Unfortunately for GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers hoping to see Ingo Rademacher back in Port Charles as Jax, the talented actor has been snatched up by CBS sudser THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL to take over the role of Thorne Forrester. However, fans of the actor will also be able to see him in the brand new movie, A Royal Christmas Ball, airing on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 9 p.m. ET on ION Television!
“Happy to announce I’m doing a cute holiday TV movie,” Rademacher posted to Instagram with an awesome photo of himself overlaid with a Christmas tree and a crown on his head. “Playing a good king from a small European country who attended university in the USA some 20 years ago, fell in love, but never returned… until now. Such a great script!”
In the movie, King Charles of Baltania (Rademacher) tracks down his American college sweetheart only to discover that she has a 17-year-old daughter, who could very well be his biological daughter! The sweetheart is played by Tara Reid, and the potential princess is none other than Rademcher’s former GH castmate, Haley Pullos (Molly)! “Grab your tiaras and your Santa hats my little angels!” the actress told her fans on Twitter to promote her role in the holiday film. Oh, and you’ll also spot another familiar Port Charles face when you watch, because Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix) also appears in the movie! Check out this special holiday trailer:
Rademacher was very clearly enjoying playing a king, and shared another photo of himself in front of a luxury car looking incredibly suave in a snazzy suit. “Fun times on the set of this holiday movie!” he wrote. Guess being the fictional ruler of a fictional country has its perks!
So be sure to tune in on Sunday, Dec. 10, to ION Television and check out this heartwarming holiday movie to see if Molly ends up being Jax's daughter! Well, you know what we mean!
