GH's Jonathan Jackson on Filming Jake's Death: "Probably The Hardest Day I Ever Had"
Entertainment Weekly chatted with General Hospital star Jonathan Jackson about taping the scene where his alter ego learns of his adopted son's death. The actor opens up about the emotions on the set.
Was that a hard scene to film?
There was absolutely insane amounts of intensity that day. Everyone was feeling it. It was a very heavy feeling on the set. It was filmed in one day, from morning til late afternoon. The filming of it went on and on. We had to go there, to that [emotional] place, and keep coming back to it after breaks. In terms of sustaining the emotion, it was probably the hardest day I ever had. I was pretty wiped out by the end of it. We all were.
