comments: Jonathan started out his career in commercials, after moving to Los Angeles with his mother in 1993. He did a commercial for Kellogg's Corn Pops before auditioning, along with a few hundred other young hopefuls, for the coveted role of Lucky Spencer in "General Hospital". He won the role, and his first appearance was on October 29, 1993. Although acting is his favorite activity, Jonathan also participates in most sports, including basketball, baseball and rollerblading. He also enjoys playing the guitar. Jonathan lives in Los Angeles with his mother brother and sister, but also commutes to spend time with his father, who still lives in Washington state. Jonathan starred in his first feature film, Camp Nowhere . For his portrayal of Lucky, Jonathan won a Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in 1995, and was nominated again in 1996 -- he won again in 1998 and 1999! Jonathan is currently attending college (he graduated high school when he was 16.)  Jonathan got rave reviews for his role in The Deep End of the Ocean, starring Michelle Pfeiffer. Jonathan's band, Scarlet Road, released a CD last year.  And he's left GH for that movie career. Look for him next in "Lost in a Purple Haze", a made-for-TV film, where he plays an 18 year old with lots of hidden family problems who soon sinks into heroine use. Up next: alongside brother Richard in the indie film, True Rights, a tale of Hollywood's ruthless pursuit of true-life stories.
