Bonus Trivia

.

Jackson, his brother Richard, their father and uncle have formed a band called Scarlet Road

.

"When people say things like 'You must've missed out on stuff like the prom', I tell them, 'Hey, I got to go to the Emmys!' You win some you lose some, "-- Jackson

.

"It took me months to find Jesse. I realized after I'd met a number of wonderful young actors that a lot of them have a very modern feel. I was looking for a young actor who had a timeless quality. Handsome, yes, but not just for its own sake. I needed an actor who could be the handsome young romantic hero, but again bringing a depth and a gravity of a much older man. When Jonathan Jackson walked in the room, I got the sense that 50 years from now an audience will still be interested in watching his performance. He won't become dated next year or in 10 years."-"Tuck Everlasting" director Jay Russell
