When it comes to the daytime television world, you can just never say never, especially when it comes to reprising an old role, right? Well, that must be on Jonathan Jackson’s mind these days as the actor says that he is opening his door on the possibility of him returning to General Hospital to reprise his role as Lucky Spencer. Here’s what you need to know.
As many fans can recall, Jonathan played Lucky from 1993 to 1999 and then again from 2009 to 2011. “When I left in 1999, I always had it in my mind to come back, you know, periodically,” the actor shared to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview. “So I’m always open to that. I’ve never really been of the mentality of closing that door.”

And while Jonathan might have recently moved to Ireland with his wife, Lisa Vultaggio, he says that he would still be open to return to Los Angeles, should to producers of General Hospital want him back. The only problem, of course, would be the ongoing pandemic that has been the coronavirus.
He noted, “Logistically, it certainly becomes more difficult to figure out [coming back to GH], not only living in Ireland but on top of that, with the travel restrictions and those complications, it makes it very difficult. But it is a strange thing that Lucky left to [go to] Ireland [upon his 2011 departure] and that I’ve ended up living here! I don’t know if maybe that means something, but maybe it’s this whole Method acting thing. I’m getting into character. I come back and say, ‘Yes, I’ve just come from Ireland!’ ”
Still, Jonathan says that all of the support he’s received from GH fans has been nothing short of “amazing.” Watch this space as we have a feeling there is so much more to come.
