Jackson was born in Canberra, and raised on Sydey's Northern Beaches, near the Home and Away set.
He returned home after spending three years in Los Angeles.
Much like his character Brody, Jackson also comes from a large family. He's the third child of six.
After high school, Jackson took courses with acting coaches and mentors.
He starred in Australian and American production such as Dance Academy, East West 101 and MTV's Teen Wolf.
When he's not acting, Jackon's also a photographer. He grew up spear fishing, surfing and watching sci-fi movies.
