Jonathan won over fans in the role of Lucky from 1993-1999 where he first embarked on a sweet love story with Elizabeth. Since leaving the role, the actor starred in the movies, “The Deep End of the Ocean,” “Tuck Everlasting,” “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” and others, as well as appeared in several episodes of the TV series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
