On Sunday, the stars of ABC participated in the All-Star Cocktail Reception immediately following the conclusion of a busy and long day as members of the TCA (Television Critics Association) attended panels on all the new shows for the fall season that the network is rolling out and has high hopes for!

But while many new shows were unveiled,  several of your favorites from daytime’s General Hospital including Finola Hughes, Brandon Barash, Kirsten Storms and Jason Thompson, and nighttime soap favorites from Revenge, including Emily Van Camp, Barry Sloane, Nick Wechsler, Josh Bowman, Madeleine Stowe, Gabriel Mann and Christa B. Allen were out in full force in support of their series!

In addition, Nashville’s Sam Palladio and Scandal’s Kerry Washington all posed on the red carpet arrivals line before entering the cocktail reception to meet the press and hang out with their peers and network executives.

Take a look at our photo gallery of the ABC stars after the jump with our captions, and let us know, who was your favorite from the photo gallery? And tell us what show are you looking forward to most in the fall season on ABC? Revenge, Nashville or Scandal?  And, we assume you will continue to support and watch General Hospital throughout the fall too!

Most of the ladies & gents looked lovely, but why can’t some of the younger actors from GH dress a little nicer when they go out for these press junkets? Kirsten S. is adorable, but why couldn’t she have worn a dress? Jason T. looked sloppy in his jeans. At least Brandon B. wore a jacket with his sloppy jeans.
I’m sure it’s just me, but I appreciate it when the stars take a little time to look their best when they make appearances.
Go Finola! She looked gorgeous!

Scandal is the best night soap opera right now. The storylines are fast and soapy. Scandal has some of the best directing bec it enhances how storylines unfold and the directing is polished. Scandal’s flaws though are casting for huck and atty general and fitz. They should recast huck and atty general bec they’re horrid actors who deliver their lines w/ such bad acting. While fitz is not attractive at all. Only good thing from that is it makes kerry even look more pretty when she’s w/ him. Giggles. Scandal’s should have cast fitz w/ a handsome actor bec it’s… Read more »

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
