Matthew Ashford (Jack, Days of Our Lives) celebrates a special anniversary milestone. Learn more here--->>
Matthew Ashford is celebrating his 35th anniversary as Jack Deveraux on Days of Our Lives.
Ashford became the third actor to play the role making his debut on October 30, 1987. At the character's inception in 1987, the role was recast two times, originated first by Joseph Adams from April 10, 1987, to July 17, 1987. James Acheson played the role briefly from July 21, 1987, to October 26, 1987. Ashford has since played the role on and off.
Jack is described as charming, manipulative, heroic, clever, selfish, arrogant and self-loathing all at the same time. He is one half of Jack and Jennifer, one of Days of our Lives' most popular supercouples. Although he entered the story as an outright villain wedging himself violently in between another popular supercouple, Steve Johnson and Kayla Brady, Jack eventually grew to establish himself as a core main character in the Days mythos through his passion, outrageous sense of humor, redemption, and undying love for heroine Jennifer Horton.
For the role of Jack, Ashford was nominated as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2012. Please help us wish him a happy anniversary!
