Jonathan Jackson eased his way into show business with commercial work and local modeling. He landed the plum role of Lucky Spencer on GENERAL HOSPITAL in 1993 during a trip to California. "I auditioned Tuesday and Wednesday, then I tested for it Friday and I worked on Monday," Jackson recalls. He soon became a fan favorite and part of the dynamic duo of Lucky and Liz. After six years on the soap, two Soap Opera Digest awards, six Daytime Emmy nominations and three Daytime Emmys for Younger Actor, Jackson decided it was time to move on.
