ABC won’t confirm or deny a report that says Jonathan Jackson — the actor who plays Lucky Spencer on General Hospital — is leaving the daytime drama. Apparently, the actor will shoot his final scenes on Nov. 17; they will air in December.

Jackson is reportedly worn out from the grind of a daytime soap, not to mention the heavy-duty storylines involving the death of his character’s child.

The actor already shot his final scenes with Anthony Geary, who plays Lucky’s dad Luke.

Jackson joined the show in 1993. He’s won four Emmys for his work on the ABC sudser.
