Jonathan Jackson Returns to General Hospital as Lucky Spencer


General Hospital has been the one and only real daytime soap opera I have watched since I was a kid. My mom watched it and then it was on after I got home from school, so I continued watching it and needless to say, I haven’t stopped.

One of my childhood crushes was on General Hospital – Lucky Spencer. The original Lucky was played by Jonathan Jackson and he was close to my age, so it was great. I even sent him fan mail and got a (probably reproduced) autographed picture even. Ahhh childhood crushes on celebrities that never go away.

When Jonathan Jackson stopped playing Lucky Spencer, I was crushed. Actors Jacob Young and Greg Vaughan resumed as Lucky but they were never really Lucky too me.

Today’s episode of General Hospital brought back Jonathan Jackson as Lucky Spencer and I was so excited! I usually TiVo GH, but today I watched it with commercials and all so I wouldn’t miss it (in case the power went out or TiVo screwed up ya know?)!

I really hope that they keep him as Lucky and that he will want to keep the role for awhile (forever). Nobody can play Lucky like Jonathan!

Love, love this post. I am still two weeks behind on my Internet GH watching, and I don't want to miss a thing in the lead up to JJ/JF coming to GH. I loved the original Lucky. GV was okay-ish, but JJ is amazing.
Cannot. Wait. To. See. It.
LOL!

I remember Lucky and Elizabeth SLOWLY falling in love. It was awesome and sweet. He slept on her floor in her bedroom after her rape to help her feel safe. They had a wonderful love affair and I can't wait to watch it happen again. I loved Jonathan Jackson as Lucky too. The other Actors tried but never quite nailed that character like Jackson.

You all are crazy!! Greg Vaughan brings the sexy to that show. Elizabeth needs a real man like Greg, not a boy like Jonathan.

I'm a fan of both Greg Vaughan and Jonathan Jackson, however I'm not sure that J.J. is right for this role anymore. The fact that he doesn't seem to have aged any bugs me a little. He almost seems too young to play Lucky now. I'm hoping I'll get used to that over time and he won't seem quite so much younger than Elizabeth and Nikolas because, like I said, I am a fan. By the way, be on the lookout for Greg Vaughan on 90210!
