Actor Jonathan Jackson, who plays Lucky Spencer on the soap opera “General Hospital,” won the trophy for Best Supporting Actor at the Daytime Emmys on Saturday night.
He took the opportunity to thank God in his acceptance speech.
“First of all, I have to give glory and honor to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,” he said at the beginning of the speech, making the sign of the cross. Having thanked his family and colleagues, he added: “Thanks to all the monks on Mt. Athos who are consistently praying for the life of the world.”
