Augustus "Gus" Jackson first appears in Season 5 as Constable "Slugger" Jackson working for Station House Five who participates in the Toronto Constabulary baseball competition, played by Kristian Bruun.

Character Arc Edit

First considered to be a drunkard and a lout but a great baseball player, he is used as a pawn by the Station House Inspectors in an elaborate web of deceit, whereupon it is revealed that he is a lovable chap. Inspector Brackenreid offers him a spot at Station House Four.

By Season 6, Jackson becomes a reoccurring character.

In Season 8, it is revealed that Constable Jackson plays the trumpet (ep.803), but discovers he can't "sing a stitch" in Once Upon a Murdoch Christmas.

In Season 9 and 10, it is revealed that he loves Christmas and comes from a large family who celebrates Christmas in a big way: "We open our presents one by one. Given that there are eleven of us in the family, it does take some time, so we draw lots to see who gets to pick the first one. That takes up the first part of the morning...After we open all the presents, the entire family goes for a winter walk. Of course, it won't be the same without snow. And upon our return, we all break into my sister's fantastic plum pudding."

Jackson does not like Inspector Slorach's cabbage rolls (ep.801) nor Detective Watt's (large soft) pretzel in Season 10, Jackson explains, "I'm not interested in anything unusual." (ep.1012)

It is revealed that he was married: After closing the office door, he confides in Det. Watts, "Two years ago, I lost my wife. She passed away in my arms." (ep.1012)

Jackson reveals to medical student Anne Baxter that his wife died of dropsy. (ep.1013) Soon, he tells her to call him Gus and a romance begins.

At the end of the season finale Hell to Pay, along with Constables Higgins and George, Jackson is caught in an ambush; all are shot and possibly murdered.

Appearances and Mentions Edit

In Winston's Lost Night, Jackson was on patrol when he spotted Winston Churchill and his friend running from an Irish mob. He promptly arrested them for singing "Rule Britannia" and thus provoking the mob. He later released them after the bars closed and warned them against singing again.

Trivia Edit

  • Called "Kris" by his friends and colleagues, Kristian Bruun's full name is Charles Kristian Bonnycastle Bruun.
  • While Kristian Bruun relishes being the one to provide comedic interludes with Constables Crabtree and Higgins, he would love to do a spin-off in the style of the Keystone Cops with the other constables, “We would do everything but catch a murderer – there’d be a whole lot of slapstick comedy!”
  • Bruun claims he can really sing, unlike Constable Jackson.
