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.

Sam and Jason were totally worn out 10 years ago.
They outlived their time– They needed to rip —

They clicked a good couple.
Franco was her knight for sure.
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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

Watch Wactor’s heartfelt message below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
