Soap Opera News interview

by Yasmin/October 15, 2018/No Comments

Ryan talks about wanting to appear on General Hospital again and reveals some more Hallmark sequels in a recent interview with Soap Opera News.

Before we talked Hallmark, Ryan made it crystal clear that he’s not coming back to General Hospital in any contractual capacity. However, he would love to come back as a guest. He is “100% behind ‘Ghost Nathan’ to see Maxie.  And to let her know Nathan still loves her, Nathan will always love her and to see our son.” Ryan also would love to come back “as homage to the fans and the show that gave me my start. Wherever, I go in this industry… I will forever be grateful to GH.”

Next we talked Hallmark. With Harvest Love’s, co-starring Jenn Lilley, recent traction, Ryan believes a sequel is on its way. He couldn’t say for certain but thinks it is a real possibility.  He could say for certain that the next installment of the Mr. Darcy series has been greenlit.  He’s not sure of when or what the subject matter will be but it’s coming.  Ryan also mentioned regarding the popular series, “It’s kind of its own franchise. But I think they want to make it into something bigger than that.

Nathan West’s funeral is set to air Friday, February 9th. It’s likely Ryan’s last episode on General Hospital and looks to be quite the tearjerker. Check out the promo below and tune in!

 

Ryan leaves ‘General Hospital’

by Yasmin/January 30, 2018/No Comments

Ryan has officially left ‘General Hospital’, the show he has called home for 4 years. He worked his last day January 18, and his last episode is expected to air one of these days.

Ryan talked to Soap Hub about his decision:

The actor says it was always his plan to stay for four years and then move on.

“My contract came up,” Paevey explains. “There are other avenues I want to explore. It’s an amicable parting. Our time together has run its course.”

He’s exiting Port Charles with nothing but gratitude. “I will forever be grateful for my time at GH, what it brought into my life, and what it taught me. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world.”

Paevey says he’s especially grateful to Frank Valentini, executive producer, and Mark Teschner, casting director, for “seeing something in me. Once I was on board, Kirsten [Storms, Maxie] was great in buoying me. Finola [Hughes, Anna] really took me under her wing and helped me learn the fundamentals.

“GH was my very first acting credit ever,” he continues. “It was my first time on a set. I had my own dressing room and I knew the security people. I had my own parking space! I got a taste of the life and worked with creative people daily.”

The actor’s decision to leave, he says, is part leap of faith given he doesn’t have much lined up outside of a sequel to his Hallmark movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy.

“I’m going out into the wild blue yonder,” he says, “I have to try.”

The actor’s been taking stage combat classes the last few years and says his dream role would be to play a Marvel superhero. He realizes anything is possible — including a return to GH.

“Michael Easton was Silas Clay when I first came on the show. Now, he’s Dr. Hamilton Finn. I’ve seen people come back!”

The actor wants to thank his fans for “supporting a newcomer like myself, who had a learning curve [ahead of him].”

A chuckling Paevey adds, “Not that I’m claiming any mastery now! I came into a world where I had no experience. There was such an outpouring of support from the fans. I don’t know that I’d be able to have done this without some semblance of support.”

Paevey takes with him many skills. “I’m comfortable on a set and with cameras. I know how to take direction. I know what ‘downstage’ is.”

Now that he’s wrapped, the actor has no intention of taking a vacation, but instead he wants to be ready for new opportunities. “I want to hit the ground running.”

Ryan’s GH character Nathan is featured in the new GH promo for this week.

Ryan did a Facebook live chat with his General Hospital co-star and on screen wife, Kirsten Storms.
