Kirsten Storms Gives a Shout Out to Thank GH Fans & Kudos to Wes Ramsey

Photo: ABC

General Hospital’s beloved Kirsten Storms (Maxie) who consistently delivers in all of her scenes, took to her Instagram story within the last 24 hours to share her thoughts on the recently aired scenes where the truth about Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) machinations have been revealed.

Storms also wanted to thank the GH fans for enjoying and sticking with the telling of the story, relating: “First, I want to say thank you to the fans who are really digging this storyline with the truth about Peter coming out.  We’ve all been working really hard, cast and crew, to bring you guys the show during this time when we have all these restrictions in place. But it’s well worth it. So thank you to the fans who are being supportive and have kind things to say.”

Kirsten also took a moment to give kudos to her co-star, Wes Ramsey, for his performances of playing bad guy Peter August which is so different than his real-life persona.  Storms expressed: “I would also like to give props to Wes Ramsey.  I’ve said this from the beginning, working with Wes, that he is the most professional, considerate, kindest actor that I have ever been paired with on GH.  And I truly mean that. Working with him is a joy.  And I want to give Wes props for his performances, especially lately. The juxtaposition of Wes’ personality and Peter’s personality is just crazy. They could not be any more different. Which is, to me, someone who really enjoys watching other actors’ performances and kind of taking my own notes on them for my performances, I really think that’s the sign of a great actor. So Wes, great job. To the fans who have been enjoying the storyline, thank you so much.”

 

So, what have you thought of Kirsten’s performances of late? It’s always heart-breaking to see Maxie betrayed.  Will Maxie keep Peter away from their unborn baby? What did you think of the sentiments shared on Storms’ IG story? Comment below.

What a professional and sweet things for her to do. What a kind and genuine thing for her to say.

No matter how nice a guy Wes is IRL, the character has long overstayed his welcome and has dragged down many of the characters he interacts with.

As for the baby, please no more baby switches for the foreseeable future. We are just getting over the Wiley/Jonah drawn out saga; we don’t need another with Maxie and Brook Lynn.

Kirsten’s work has been exceptionally great lately. Though I’ve hated the Peter Puke pairing since day one, she’s weathered the story like a real pro, entirely believable. I don’t agree about the other performance…I find it to be Snidely Whiplash, cartoon level work. And I HATE the consistent mention of Drew’s death…just makes me miss Billy Miller.

Oh, my Billy!! I don’t believe Drew is dead, Soaphound—-nonetheless, I pray that Billy Miller will resume the role if Drew were to come back. No one else will do.
I can’t stand to even look at Ramsey—-I break out in hives.
Personal feelings aside, it was nice of Kirsten to speak so highly of him—albeit I can’t wait for him to go away!!

brownie points, for the prop. jeez! couldn’t you just have left well enough alone

^^^^”…someone who really enjoys watching other actors’ performances and kind of taking my own notes on them for my performances, I really think that’s the sign of a great actor ”

Wes Ramsey has been propped, spoon fed , given A list status…. nothing came of it

DONE

Thank You, Patrick. I couldn’t agree more. And his new mantra, “Now I’m gonna be Bad Petey” is as threatening as a marshmallow. Enough of this guy!

I fast fast forward through these two. They have zero chemistry. I always feel like the GH’s PR team is trying too hard sell this couple to fans. They almost seem to shrieking, “LOVE THIS COUPLE!”

Harry Right again. It was very nice of K.S to make a special effort to boost up Wes Ramsey. I also hate the character of Peter but it’s like a lot of fans hate both Peter and Wes. He played a great guy on G.L, and the only thing I have to offer is that especially in this case, he is so good, that we love to hate him. I don’t think in all my many years of watching soaps, have I ever seen such an instant dislike and name calling of an character. Again, Maxie and Peter was a… Read more »

Violet…I still think why Wes/Peter has inspired such dislike with some is because of his association with another character many dislike…Carly which extends to the real life influence they think Laura had in getting him on GH.

Agree. Zero Chemistry. Maxie has chemistry with Spinnelli, JJ Lucky and RP Nathan. Can we please get Jonathan Jackson back recurring. GH fix his schedule however he needs but bring him back.

Two other couples fit zero chemistry for me…Finn and Anna, and Franco and Elizabeth. Will say I think Franco worked well with her “bozys” though. I do like the potential of Jason and “Brita.”

I agree with you, Rose, about all those couples. I don’t dislike Wes Ramsey. I just don’t like Peter, however, I really like him better as a villain. Jason is kind of cute with Britt. He and Sam just seem like the thrill is gone. They just don’t seem that into each other anymore.

He fought through hell for her and I really liked them together.

Can’t we simply rid ourselves of this character…..Peter is a nauseating, weak repulsive coward…. Maxi chose this faux savior after being with sweet, kind, beautiful Nathan ❓❓❓Whatever was she thinking….With all the TRULY TALENTED actors on this show who have come and gone, Wes Ramshackle isn’t one of them cut him loose!

That is great and WR is a great actor and I wish him the very best but it is way past time for Peter to be written off.

I actually feel bad for Peter!! I really liked him. Was wishing it could work for him and Maxie. He’s a great actor. He was trying to have a good life. But he has to much in his past to overcome and when things go bad he becomes that other guy again. I really don’t want another baby switch storyline either. I know it’s only a soap but can’t anyone have a little happiness. Every character is miserable!! It depressing to watch!

And as a shout out to Kirsten/Maxie…while she can be smart, the writers usually have her playing a ditzy, always in a hurry character. Glad to see they are giving her some good script to work and she’s able to show off her good stuff.

rose, she better show off some really good stuff when Peter kidnaps her, and we know he will, but I hope we don’t have to see him deliver a second baby, if it causes her to go into labor.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.
