As Jonathan Jackson returns, we take a look back on daytime's favorite son.
From his earliest days (like here, Jonathan Jackson back in his "adorable mop-head" mode), Lucky Spencer was one of GH's most celebrated characters. He's come a long way -- click ahead and see how!

I THINK THIS IS LIKE HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF BECAUSE SOMEONE'S GOING TO ALWAYS BREAK UP LUCKY AND LIZ AND THEN SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE THEY EVENTUALLY BOND OVER SOMETHING AND FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO EACH OTHER AND THEN MARRY AND DIVORCE ALL OVER...THE BOND THIS TIME IS OF COURSE GOING TO BE THE FACT THAT LIZ'S NEW BORN BABY IS ACTUALLY LUCKY'S..AND COULD WE PLEASE FIND SOMEONE FOR MAXIE TO BE WITH BECAUSE SHE REAlly IS A DISTRACTION THAT DOESNT NEED TO BE ENTERTAINED..YOU GET IT..GOT IT!
Amen stacie112521105! JJ is the original Lucky and really no one can compare! Greg was ok and sort of cute but let's get real, Jason is the real Ladies Man on this show! Dante looks pretty good himself!
yum yum...n i still love me some sonny!!! lol
I cannot understand this at all. I have been watching GH since 2007. I thought Greg Vaughn was so good looking so I kept on watching. If I would miss daytime viewing I could watch it on Soap Net. When I first heard Jonathan Jaskson was reprising his role as Lucky,I wasn't quite sure exactly who this person was. The first episode when he rang the door bell and Liz opened the door, I was floored. I couldn't believe my eyes. Greg was being replaced by this guy! Oh what a wrong move. He is nothing but a dweeb, this guy can't even act and so not good looking. Just hearing him speak erks my nerves. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BRING GREG BACK NOW!!!!!!!! Why did you get rid of GREG anyway. Was he offered a better deal on another soap? If so, tell me which one. You big shots should have offered him more money to stay. He is sadly missed already. Greg is such a hunk and a ladies man whereas Jonathan is so so so NOT. LOL to GREG.
Why the harshness towards Jonathan Jackson returning to the role he helped create? I've been watching since 1995 when I was a little girl & got hooked on it during the summertime and I thought Jonathan Jackson was a great actor. I've watched it for all this time and am glad to see him back. I would have been even if he wasn't playing Lucky.
The one thing that seems to be the constant in complaints is the looks department. How shallow. Honestly. If more people would come out and say "Greg acted this scene so well, he made me think and cry and I hate the show for letting him go..." No, most of what you hear is "He was so hot, he was a hunk, he had crazy muscles..." That's WONDERFUL. Greg Vaughn IS HOT. That is a given. And he can act, too. Jonathan Jackson is just as good-looking to me, it's just in a completely different way. He carries himself in a different way and while he doesn't look like he's going to sack some quarterback anytime soon... To say he can't act? There are quite a few familiar with his work and the whole back story of Elizabeth and Lucky and how they came together. How can you watch this show and not be a little bit interested in the history of it, besides the telling of the history? Recent viewers are great, they are in high demand and they are familiar with what they've been shown but when you see a scene between Emily and Elizabeth in 2007 and Em says to Liz "Maybe you're not the kids who stayed underneath the docks anymore..." Didn't that make you want to KNOW what that was all about? This is the history of YOUR show, the one you watch. And JJ helped make up a part of that history; if nothing else, respect him for that. I respect Greg V. for the history he created for Lucky while he was on the show.
while Greg did a decent job potraying Lucky, this was the original Lucky Spencer. I mean no disreapect by this, but you have been watching since 2007. I have been watching since i was like 4 with my mom back in 1988!!! Greg was introduced to the cast in 2003. There's nothing better than having Jonathan Jackson back!! He's still a heartthrob. just give it some time, and you'll see what he can bring to the table. Believe me, he is awsome!!! I'm sure other JJ fans wills agree with me on that. But again, you just started watching and don't know...I'm sorry
I am so excited that this wonderful actor has returned to play Lucky again. To me he was the one & only Lucky ever. The character always changes when new actors play a role that was so soulful. I just hope they can get him & Elizabeth back together, they had such great chemistry. But I'm sure this will bring more animosity toward him & Nikolas. I hope she gets away from that cad...
Forgot all about summer. lol So EXCITED, and so very ready for Ll2 to be reunited with the original portrayers back! Can't wait for today! The veterans, the spencer/cassadine story, elizabeth, so many possibilities, that it's brought me back to GH. Haven't watched in almost two years b/c of the writing, and constant mob. So ready for some familial stories, and the evnetual ROMANCE BTWN LL2!!!!!! YES!
