General Hospital

Love Crimes- Lucky finds out and Jonathan Jackson delivers!

We all knew with the return of General Hospital’s Jonathan Jackson after the sad dismissal of Greg Vaughan in the role of Lucky Spencer, that for this Daytime Emmy winner to come  back to the daytime fold, that he would have to have major story fireworks.  Since October of last year, with Jackson’s return, we have witnessed the set-up of the dreamer Lucky pursuing his fair Elizabeth to once again marry him and make a family for the boys.   We have witnessed Luke finding out about the clandestine affair between Elizabeth and Lucky’s half-brother, Nikolas, and we have watched Liz and Nikolas unable to control themselves, even thought they say their affair has to stop.   Well finally on yesterday’s air show, a blind-sided Lucky walks in on his gal Liz and bro’ Nik, half-naked and in the throes of passion.   So what does he do?  He leaves the scene…site unseen! Then, goes back to the Spencer house and demolishes the place!  Liz walks in and Lucky feigns that Luke must have gone on a tirade.   And so it begins…

GH has wisely tantalized viewers with the shift in Lucky (a vengeful one), and Jonathan Jackson is and will play this for all it’s worth.  Jackson’s performance resonated with hurt, portrayal, and that  everything and everyone he believed in shattered in just that one sickening moment.   The fact that Lucky is not letting on to Liz and Nikolas that he knows they have been mutually carrying on an illicit affair and lying to him for months, is a great twist.

High Five to Jackson for today’s airport scene where he asks his brother, Nikolas to stay in Port Charles, all the while hating his guts!   Remember,  Lucky packed his pistol, and then went to Luke’s club, and alone recalled the moment that rocked his world…Nikolas and Elizabeth “doing it”….and what comes next for a recovering addict? Drowning your pain in booze. Kudos to Jackson for showing us the complexities of a man whose entire foundation has come tumbling down around him.   Soap fans and pundits, I am sure will agree, that you can’t wait to see Jackson’s upcoming performances as Lucky hits rock bottom and then has to crawl all the way back to the top.   And, of course, and more delicious then all of that is that we can’t wait to see how Lucky is going to make his brother and his lady love pay for their love crimes.

I had no doubts that Jonathan would be anything but fabulous! He has rejuvenated Lucky Spencer and I’m so glad he has come “home”. He truly has a gift and I can’t wait to see what he does next!!

Lucky Spencer is back folks! JJ is absolutely great and his ability to layer the complexities of who Lucky Spencer is, is just fascinating to watch. We are very “lucky” (pun intended) to have him back. Watch out Elizabeth and Nikolas, Lucky isa comin’! JJ will rock those scenes as well!

Bravo Jonathan! You are showing once again how talented an actor you are. The emotional range shown this week by you had me in tears. I was feeling everything you were feeling as Lucky. Welcome back to the role that is exclusively yours. Can’t wait to see how you get your revenge on Liz and Nicolas……

This is Monday’s take on Jonathan Jackson. He absolutely kicked it out of the park with a performance unlike anything I have ever seen over the years. He ran the gamut of emotions and revealed everything I would have said and more to Elisabeth. I hope he can get custody of his boys. That depends how low he goes into despair. As an actor there is no one who can touch him right now. Great writing and even greater performance Bravo! Bravo!

Welcome back, Jonathan! There can be absolutely no question that he has rejuvenated the ailing Lucky Spencer. The character had all but disappeared from our screens except in name only and then on October 27, 2009, he returned in full glory. Jonathan hasn’t missed a beat. He slipped back into this role easily because it was, quite simply, made for him. He has re-affirmed with each new performance that he IS Lucky Spencer. No one gets this character like he does. No one can bring this character to life like he does!

Thank God, he’s home. May he NEVER leave again!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
