Jonathan Jackson Speaks on Return to General Hospital

at . Comments

As previously reported, General Hospital has pulled a switcheroo:

Greg Vaughan has been let go from the role of Lucky Spencer; while Jonathan Jackson, the man that originated the character, will come back to the series on October 27.

In a new interview, Jackson speaks to TV Guide Magazine about his return to Port Charles:

On playing an older version of Lucky: I’m coming back to play the character as an adult, but because I don’t know what that really means yet, I’ll be like a child, coming into it with a sense of wonder and curiosity because it’ll all be so new. I have no idea what this is going to feel like.

On returning to the role he hasn't played in a decade: I guess I always felt like there was a possibility somewhere, just because of the connection the audience has with Lucky, and with me playing him. So, yeah, I always felt it was a possibility. I was determined to work with Tony Geary again no matter what. It’s shocking how everything has aligned.
