Greg Vaughan (Lucky, General Hospital)Greg Vaughan, the venerable Lucky Spencer on General Hospital for the last six years, has announced on his Twitter page that he will be leaving the show. From his tweets, it appears that the parting of the ways was not initiated by him.

In three tweets he wrote,

"As of today, with sad regrets, I will no longer be apart of

what has been a big part of me and my families life. GH and TPTB have...

...choosen to take a new direction. I THANK ALL of YOU, for the many memories we've shared and new ones to come!!! ALL MY LOVE, & BIG HUGS...

...to YOU the FANS!!! I LOVE YOU ALL MORE!!!! GV"

At the same time....

SOD Online is reporting that Jonathan Jackson, the actor who starred in the role of Lucky Spencer from 1993 to 1999 -- and won three Daytime Emmy Awards for the role -- is on his way back to Port Charles. In fact, according to SOD, he is starting taping this Thursday.

Between Vaughan and Jackson, Jacob Young (JR, All My Children) played Lucky from 2002-2003. He too won a Daytime Emmy Award for his role as Lucky in 2002.

Staying on top of this breaking story, Soapdom has gotten official word from General Hospital, confirming that Jonathan Jackson is indeed heading back to GH.

Soapdom wishes Vaughan all the best as he sets out on this, the next stage of his career, and congratulates Jackson for returning to the roll he made fan famous.
