# General Hospital Fans Rejoice: Jonathan Jackson Returns as Lucky Spencer

The announcement that General Hospital fans have been eagerly awaiting has finally arrived: Jonathan Jackson, the Emmy-winning actor who brought Lucky Spencer to life, is set to return to Port Charles. Soap opera enthusiasts have been abuzz with speculation and excitement since General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini hinted at a major star’s comeback earlier this month at the Daytime Emmys. Valentini teased, “A former cast member is coming back, and I think that the audience will go crazy for him.” The anticipation has culminated in the revelation that Jonathan Jackson, who last appeared on the show in 2015, will be making his much-anticipated return later this summer for an extended run.

Jonathan Jackson first captivated audiences in 1993 when he originated the role of Lucky Spencer, the beloved son of the iconic super-couple Luke and Laura Spencer, played by Anthony Geary and Genie Francis. Jackson’s portrayal of Lucky quickly made him a fan favorite, and he remained a central figure on the show until 2011. During his tenure, Jackson earned widespread acclaim, securing five Daytime Emmy Awards out of nine nominations for his exceptional performances in 1995, 1998, 1999, 2011, and 2012. His departure from General Hospital in 2011 was to take on a starring role in ABC’s Nashville, where he portrayed Avery Barkley for six successful seasons.

Jackson’s career extends far beyond the confines of daytime television. He has showcased his versatility as an actor in various film and television projects, including The Deep End of the Ocean, On the Edge, Insomnia, Tuck Everlasting, and Venom. Despite his ventures into primetime and film, Jackson’s portrayal of Lucky Spencer remains one of his most cherished roles. Throughout his absences from General Hospital, the character was portrayed by actors Jacob Young and Greg Vaughan, but Jackson’s return is sure to reignite the magic that fans remember.

In addition to his acting prowess, Jonathan Jackson is a talented musician and writer. He has written and recorded hundreds of songs, and has toured internationally with the cast of Nashville and his band, Jonathan Jackson + Enation. His passion for music is paralleled by his literary pursuits. Jackson authored The Mystery of Art, a theological prose that has been translated into Greek, Romanian, and Russian, and The Harrowing of Hell, an epic poem. His contributions to literature and the arts were recognized in 2022 when he was awarded the Distinction of Excellence by Royal Literary Magazine for his “contribution to the understanding of authentic art, for literary works written with inspiration and talent, for highlighting the values of Eastern culture.”

This year, Jackson starred in the film Unsung Hero, opposite Terry O’Quinn and Candace Cameron Bure, further demonstrating his versatility and talent. In addition to his artistic endeavors, Jackson is also committed to education. He serves as the Associate Dean and Primary Lecturer at Theoria School of Filmmaking in Nashville, where he imparts his knowledge and experience to aspiring filmmakers. Despite his numerous professional commitments, Jackson remains grounded, living in Tennessee with his family.

General Hospital’s upcoming episodes promise to be a treat for long-time fans, not only with Jackson’s return but also with appearances from other beloved characters. Bryan Craig is set to reprise his role as Morgan Corinthos for a special one-day appearance in August, adding to the nostalgia and excitement surrounding the show’s future.

As the return of Lucky Spencer approaches, fans of General Hospital can look forward to the emotional depth and compelling storytelling that Jonathan Jackson brings to the screen. His return marks a significant moment in the show’s history, reaffirming its enduring legacy and the unwavering loyalty of its audience. So, mark your calendars and prepare for a summer of heartfelt drama and memorable moments as Jonathan Jackson returns to General Hospital, bringing Lucky Spencer back to Port Charles.
