News: The Demise of Jonathan Jackson

A few months ago Raven Beaty told us that 2 major GH cast members would get the can by new years, and it seems like we havefound out who one of them might be.

Although not confirmed by the network, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that four-time Emmy winner, Jonathan Jackson will be leaving "General Hospital,"and will shoot his final scenes November 17. Jonathan returned to the ABC soap in 2009 after 12 years away from the role. 

A rep for the ABC soap says "we can neither confirm nor deny" that Jackson is out. Word from the set is that the beloved and acclaimed actor is exhausted from a heavy work schedule and months of a harrowing storylines that have included the death of Lucky's child and the character's addiction to drugs.
Sources say Jackson had attempted to get GH execs to lighten his schedule with no luck. He also wanted to be romantically reteamed with Rebecca Herbst (Liz) but struck out there, too. The actor has already completed his final scenes with TV dad Tony Geary (Luke). 

What are your thoughts on Jonathan Jackson's status as Lucky? What he your favorite portrayer of Lucky?
