If you are watching today’s episode of General Hospital’s 50th anniversary celebration, you know that it’s time for the festivities to begin for the highly-anticipated long-awaited Nurses’ Ball to get underway for the citizens of Port Charles and the millions of fans who will be watching who are part of the celebration for GH’s huge milestone!

On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman received a very special invitation from General Hospital and executive producer, Frank Valentini to be part of the on-camera red carpet festivities, but just how would he end up participating? And where would he be? And what would he actually have to do?  Those were the questions Michael wanted to know, when he showed up on this very special tape day!

And in this exclusive behind-the-scenes look of the red carpet event at the Nurses’ Ball, Fairman filed this video report, which includes his thoughts on trying to figure out what to do with a camera!  Oh yes …  he played a paparazzi, or thought he did!  And, On-Air On-Soaps had a prime position to all the red carpet walks, the dresses, and the drama of the gala event!

Check it out after the jump, in our very special GH 50 anniversary nod to fans of On-Air On-Soaps and the iconic soap!

This is hilarious,Michael. We couldn’t tell if your camera was working or not. You are a good sport to inflick this on yourself. Thought the red carpet was a great idea. You might want to go to a camera store so you’ll know where the flash is next time. Funny!..

P.S. would love it Micheal if you make another cameo…as Dr.Os evil husband and papa of Dr. Britch! That would be hilarious! LMAO!!!

Got to watch it again Micheal…my sister taped it…you did a great job as a reporter and you looked right at home. You should do more cameos on all the soaps(maybe as a photographer at a soap couples wedding? Y&R shouldve had you be a photorapher or a reporter doing a cover story on Victors and Nikkis wedding) Not that silly cameo suggestion i was joking about as Dr.Os hubby and Britts father! but im serious about the other suggestions i just made.

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.”
