I went to the set of GH on Monday to sit down and conduct this brand new interview with Jonathan Jackson. While there, I got to say hello to his wife Lisa Vultaggio, (remember her as Hannah?) and Jonathan’s kids who were with him on the set that day. Jonathan is just one of those guys who will never age! He still reminds me of the young Lucky we all fell in love with back in the mid 1990′s, and the incredible actor who won three, count em, three Daytime Emmys for his memorable performances as legandary soap super couple Luke and Laura’s number one son. So now coming back ten years and two other Lucky Spencer’s later, Jonathan tell me that he is ready to reclaim Lucky and play him as the adult version, and for all that he is worth.
With a secret about to explode that Lucky’s beloved Elizabeth is sleeping with his beloved brother, Nikolas, it will be intriguing to see how Jackson plays the emotional beats of the story. I did ask Jonathan directly, about the controversial and mixed messages and confusion over the departure of fan favorite, Greg Vaughan to make way for Jonathan’s return. His answer may shed some light on the subject.
Of course, getting the opportunity to be reunited with Tony Geary was an enticing proposition for Jonathan, who also would love it if he could have the chance to work with both on-screen parents again….meaning….bring back Genie Francis!
It’s a new day for Lucky as he is now become a dectective, will be involved at times with Jason Morgan, as opposite sides of the law… or perhaps not.
Make sure to listen to the audio of this interview to hear Jonathan in his own words and read the full transcript.
And don’t forget to watch Jonathan’s return to Port Charles all week long on GH on ABC!
Till next time,
