  • It's getting busier again! Gigi found out that Jonathan will appear in a new Lifetime movie alongside Emmy Award® winner Judy Davis as grifters and convicted murderers Kenneth and Sante Kimes, coming in early 2006! It is currently filming in Canada.

    ETA: For anyone interested in the real story behind this movie, click here (beware, it's a gruesome story)
24 october 2005
it's me again...
  • I keep forgetting that enation also maintains a blog on MySpace - you all go run check it out: it has a new song called This Darkness and also a few concert photos - and the best part? You can download the songs!!!
23 october 2005
  • only semi OT, but I just have to report it: On Jonathan's former show General Hospital, his character Lucky and long-time love Liz are finally tying the knot (starting Oct. 28) and it's one spectacularly beautiful dream wedding!!! Check out more pictures here

    [credit goes to SOAPeSCAPE]

  • Another GH-related mention - this time by soap columnist Michael Logan - can be found here, read the Jonathan-related part below (btw, the "reader" who asked that question was our very own Gigi!!!)

Reader Question: Michael, what do you think of Greg Vaughan over at "GH"? Personally, I think he's better than Jacob Young, but I still really, really miss Jonathan Jackson. Jackson should be a superstar with his level of talent. — Gigi

Logan: There's only one Jonathan Jackson, and his rare intelligence, sensitivity and old-soul incandescence put an indelible stamp on that role. I think Greg Vaughan is perfectly fine, I just don't think of him as Lucky. But I do that a lot with "GH" replacements. I always have to remind myself that Natalia Livingston is playing the same character Amber Tamblyn did — to my mind Livingston is playing someone who also happens to be named Emily. I never adjusted to Lesli Kay as Lois, or John Ingle as Edward, and certainly not Sandra Ferguson as Felicia. I'm hopeless that way where "GH" is concerned, and I'm not sure why. I have no such issues on other shows — like when Heather Tom took over the role on "OLTL" created by Gina Tognoni, or when Tognoni took over the role on "GL" made famous by Wendy Moniz. There's just something about "GH"...

A slightly better review of The Reaper @ Ain't it Cool News

S T I L L  O F F  T O P I C

To all West Coast Canadians or people who have been in West Canada in the summer: I need your help!!!!!
I'll be touring West Canada [Vancouver to Banff and Jasper Natl. Park and back, incl. Vancouver Island] with my parents from mid-August to early September and I would like to know stuff like how's the weather usually during that time, do we have to consider any run-ins with mosquitoes or other animals? Do we need to consider anything else? Are there any special locations I DEFINITELY need to check out? That may be off the touristy road but way more worth seeing? Anything that you think worth mentioning would be extremely helpful!!!! Just send me an email [anya@starseek.de]! I thank you all in advance for helping me :-)

Again, this to let you know that this website is NOT closing or anything...I'm just in the middle of graduation...and hard at studying...which translates into not having enough time to update the site more often and probably being extremely late in replying to any emails...thankfully, Jonathan's public life has been pretty quiet as well right now ;-)

Nevertheless, some small but important news regarding Jonathan's movie Backwater:

Following the report last week of a schedule set for the new Weinstein Co.’s upcoming releases, Variety revealed that a whole bunch of Miramax and Dimension titles have been rescheduled to open before the Weinstein brothers’ departure from Disney September 30. Most significantly, the Jim Gillespie/Kevin Williamson film previously titled BACKWATER is now slated to open September 16 under the new title THE REAPER.

DON'T FORGET: Jonathan's 23rd birthday is next Tuesday, May 11!!!! Head over to his forum to send wishes :-)

Now here's the real concert report by Zandra - click here

A little OT, but Greg Vaughan, the current "Lucky Spencer" on General Hospital (a role made famous by Jonathan), recently mentioned Jonathan in the Dallas Morning News (free registration needed):

In a recent phone interview from Los Angeles, Mr. Vaughan, 31, talked about his days as a big-time model, his life away from the cameras and his present role as the oft-unlucky Lucky Spencer.


And now you're Lucky on GH. Is there a drawback to playing a role that had been portrayed by another actor for a long time?

People fell in love with Jonathan Jackson [the original Lucky] as a teenager. It was hard to accept him leaving. But it comes with the territory – it takes the first year of just being hated.

The first concert reports are in!

  • J. went to Thursday's concert in Seattle - read her report and see some pictures here - THANK YOU!!!
  • Nonni went to the concert in Vancouver, read about it here (scroll down)
  • Kristine posted her photos from the Vancouver concert here

Unfortunately, Jonathan did not win the Saturn Award (Emmy Rossum did for Phantom of the Opera) - but I updated/cleaned up the awards section anyway since some info was missing

Miramax has released the website for Jonathan's upcoming movie Backwater, however, there's nothing much on there yet...but keep checking :-)

In other news/rumors....I usually don't do this unless it's been confirmed...but this site has been right before:
According to TVTome, Jonathan and Lisa are expecting their second child...if true, CONGRATULATIONS!

Please check out all my new affiliates! Welcome on board!

There's also a new country added in the tribute section as well.

  • According to Entertainment Weekly, the Backwater release date is August 26 (thanks Nancy!)
  • A little tidbit of information about Backwater from an interview with Meagan Good (see picture), Jonathan's co-star:

    Meagan, what is Backwater about?

    MEAGAN: Backwater is a horror movie from the makers of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer and my character's grandmother is a Voo Doo priestess and I kind of grew up in the whole Voo Doo thing, kind of an outcast. It's also with Jonathan Jackson, Agnes Bruckner, Melanie Griffin. It's a really good cast. What ends up happening, these snakes that are used in ceremonies to milk people when they are possessed by demons, are kept in this cage that is buried in this burial ground. And, hundreds of thousands of different people have been 'de-milked' I guess you could say by these snakes. My grandmother finds out that they are going to turn the burial ground into a mill so she goes to dig up the snakes and take them to a safer place. In the process, she gets into a car accident and a guy jumps over the bridge to try and save her and he dives into the car, realizes that she's dead. He tries to get out and he gets locked in the car with the snakes. They attack him and now he's possessed by the evil of countless souls.

    Did you have to work with the snakes yourself?

    MEAGAN: No, I didn't but I'm not afraid of snakes. I'm petrified of spiders. I would never do Arachnophobia. It would never happen.

    Was being in a horror movie a different kind of challenge for you?

    MEAGAN: Spiritually, the whole Voo Doo thing was a little difficult for me because in my particular spirituality, I just don't believe in different Gods and all this Voo Doo stuff. But, I came to know that Voo Doo isn't actually evil like a lot of people think it is. It's not as negative as people think it is. I did ask to have some things removed that had to do with Gods and make them more like souls or spirits just for my personal beliefs. But, overall, it was really fun. The characters are really weird and kind of out there.

There seems to be some sort of specific plans forming in regards to enation on tour! according to this musician's web journal:

The line-up for this tour is going to be good, John Stephens (Columbia-Neve), Jonathan Jackson's band Enation (you might recognize Jonathan from the movies 'Tuck Everlasting' and 'Insomniac' [sic]) and Kristy Thirsk (Delirium-Nettwork). I'd love to hear from anyone in ID, UT, NV, CA, OR, CO, AZ & WA that wants me to make sure the tour comes through your town.
Cary Judd

A note from me: First of all, THANK YOU to all who already contributed!!!! I really appreciate your help! :-)
And second, I'll be out of town for a week, so if you send an email and don't get a reply, that's probably the reason ;-)

31 january 2005
A word from me to you, the fans of the Jonathan Jackson Fanpage:

As you can see on the right side, there's a little button that asks you to make a donation. There is a reason for this (for me doing this now): I'm about to finish school and won't be able to work the next few months, that means no income to finance this site (which actually has become pretty expensive the last couple of years). Because as you may have noticed, this website does not have any ads polluting the surfing experience, that's because I HATE ads LOL. So I am asking you very humbly that if you like this website and would like to help me continue it for as long as Jonathan's career is blossoming, please make a donation. It really does not need to be much, little can make a HUGE difference!!!

Thank you VERY MUCH!!!!
