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.”

“Harvest Love”

by Yasmin/July 26, 2017/No Comments

Ryan left for Vancouver Tuesday to film a new Hallmark movie titled “Harvest Love”. His co-star is Jen Lilley, who previously played Maxie on General Hospital for a year, though it was before Ryan came on the show.

The movie is a romantic comedy about Luna Gilson (Jen Lilley), a widowed mother and busy surgeon, who visit’s her grandfather’s farm in hopes of reconnecting with her son, Andy. Upon relocating herself and her son to the town, she meets the farm manager, Will Nash (Ryan Paevey), who is growing a new hybrid of pear. She begins to connect with people in town when she unexpectedly treats them for minor medical problems. She also finds a connection with Will, who teaches her the importance of her heritage.

“Harvest Love” will premiere during Hallmark Channel’s annual “Fall Harvest” programming event. It’s directed by Christie Will Wolf with screenplay by Judith Berg and Sandra Berg.

Synopsis of “The Storm”

by Yasmin/January 27, 2017/No Comments

Ryan is currently in Louisville, Kentucky filming a movie for about three weeks. All we know so far is it’s an indie film with intention for a sale to theatres. We also have the plot summary per IMDb:

“In the midst of Texas storm season, a cold-blooded criminal comes after the small town sheriff who sent him to prison a decade earlier. The criminal mortally wounds the sheriff leaving only an inexperienced deputy to protect the locals who are caught in the crossfire after a tornado rips through the town, cutting it from the outside world.”

Ryan has said he plays “a villain” in this movie.

The movie also stars Josie Davis and Kaleigh Rivera.

On California’s ABC7 today, Ryan revealed that he will be taking about a month off from General Hospital to film a new movie. He wouldn’t reveal much more than that he starts filming in a few days in Kentucky, and will be playing a villain this time. We’ll post as soon as we learn anything more about it.

“Unleashing Mr. Darcy”

by Yasmin/November 20, 2015/4 Comments

Ryan is currently filming a Hallmark movie called ‘Unleashing Mr. Darcy’, where he plays Donovan Darcy. It is based on a book by Teri Wilson.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.

Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she’s crossing the pond with the only companion she needs—her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn’t count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon’s a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy…and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?

Filming is currently taking place in Canada and will wrap on November 25th. No news yet on when the movie will air. Ryan shared a picture earlier from filming.
