Ryan Paevey Cast as Nathan West On General Hospital! A New Hottie Set To Arrive In Port Charles!

We had heard rumors that not one, but two, hotties were heading to General Hospital, and they are both coincidentally named Ryan! The first being the return of Ryan Carnes as Lucas Jones, and now comes word from none other than GH’s head scribe, Ron Carlivati as to who the other hottie is!

Actor/model Ryan Paevey has joined the cast of the ABC soap opera in the role we have mentioned previously was being cast that of a new detective, Nathan West, who will be working for the PCPD!  The role is contract!  Look for Ryan to first appear on the Monday, December 30th episode!

Carlivati tweeted around the time of the annual GH Holiday Party,  “Look who’s coming to Port Charles…”, and with that, a sexy shot of Paevey was part of the tweet!  Later, Ron sent out a second tweet after all the inquiries as to who the hottie was.  He then added, ”To those who were asking me about this guy, Google Ryan Paevey. #Enjoy.”  

Could Nathan eventually turn out to be a new love interest for Maxie (Kirsten Storms), since the show has teased a new man enters her life?  Or, is it someone else on the canvas who will romantically mix it up with Nathan?  Let us know what you think about Mr. Paevey?

Methinks he was cast more for his looks than any acting talent. He has hardly any acting credits but a lot of modeling credits. So is this going to be another example of a person learning to act on my time?

Probably, and some of these cookie cutter soap hunks never do learn the craft of acting.

On the other hand, a lot of them do. Actors-to-be have to start somewhere, and many models-turned-actors say they cut their teeth on a soap. Give the young man a chance…

I don’t care if he can act or not. This guy is too cute! Lucky, lucky Maxie.

Are you NUTS?!? Who CARES if he can act! LOL! Besides, if his abs are any indication as to his dedication when attaining his goals, then I’m sure he has the acting thing in the bag! But still, Hubba Hubba Shwing!

It’s OLTL Ford brothers all over again. He probably has two hunky brothers coming to town too. The cast is already bloated with many veterans being underused. GH does not need more fluff.

LOL. I AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTS. DULL AS DISHWATER. WE DONT NEED ANY MORE NEWBIES, YOU CANNOT ACT. BRING BACK GENIE FRANCIS, AND SIGN HER TO A CONTRACT.

I dont mind newbies but only if the vets we already have are used…but this show has enough characters…i thought these shows were costly to produce so why keep adding to it?(hopefully he will be involved with Liz!)

I would enjoy watching him and Ryan Carnes cozy up in port Chuck. That said I’d love to see a character carry on an affair with someone of the opposite & same sex. So watching Lucas find out that his boyfriend is hooking up with Maxie or vice versa would make for some 21st century soap fun

Another newbie from Ron. Same old thing. Tired of his cast, so he writes in someone new. And truthfully, Ryan has an OK face, but other than that, he is nothing in the looks department. Can we start using the cast we have now, or even cast people who don’t look like A&F off the poster. What happened to the normal, average Joes of the world?

Iakovos

You make a point, Scott. Give me the days of a Wanda and Vinnie on OLTL, real people! I think that was always the difference between NYC-based and LA-based soaps. Theater people and talent were not models or beauties. Attractive, yes, but in so many real and genuine ways.

I do wish GH would cut back on some of the “speed plotting” and “cast of thousands” to focus more on legacy characters. Still, the soap is firing well and keeps me following.

Excellent observations from all three of you.. For me, the acting is the main credential to be considered when auditioning and GH has always been a soap where yes, there have been stunners, but they’ve also had their share of “everyman” and “everywoman” types in terms of looks and body configuration. And that’s what has made GH a “believable” soap in terms of seeing people on screen who look like people you would see on the street in your home area. Look at the just exited Bradford Anderson. Yes, this new hire is attractive. Goody for him. We’ll soon see… Read more »

Well, then don’t watch it! I’m with you, Andrea and Lisa. And Scott, that’s YOUR opinion on Ryan. He has much more than an “okay face”! AND body! However, he hasn’t been on the show long enough for anyone to judge his acting abilities. And sometimes the soaps just want to put eye candy actors on to attract viewers, especially in the summer. I love the story line of his being so attracted to Maxie, who is with that loser and seems to be blind to how ridiculous he is for her compared to Ryan. But to each his own.… Read more »

BEST SOAPS: Days and GH tied, best actress: Maura West as GHs Ava but also mention were Eileen Davison, Allison Sweeny for Days, Finola Hughes for GH, Heather Tom for B&B, and Debbi Morgan for AMC. best actor: Billy Miller for Yawn&R…lol. supporting actress: Meredith s. Lynn(Anne) for Days…but what about Kathleen G. for GH?…i do like Mereidith as Anne but Dr.O should at least tie! best supporting actor: John Aniston for Days…finally…he’s long overdue for some recognition! TVguides Micheal Logan is where i got my info.

I hope John is emmy nominated…long before Days i had watched him do a great job as Edouard on Love Of Life and he wasnt nominated for a daytime emmy back then as well…i believe this is his time to shine!

OH! I love the snappy…. in your face… it’s my parade too

Anne.. LOL… Days of OUR Lives.. Rules!

they really have the best complete cast… that ALL mesh so well together….

I personally think Days could use some additions to its cast. They are missing some key components in certain age brackets and in character “type”. I thought they had the right mix circa 2010, but now there are holes that need to be filled.

I like RC/FV, but I don’t like that it appears they hire some actors for looks alone (like the vapid Ford trio on OLTL). I like using the existing cast and recurring characters. No need at this time for eye candy. There is plenty of that already.

He is not ”eye candy”
He is all that much..
he is good looking but not overly so..
And I see the handsome Ford brothers have a hold you to this day you can not let them go lol

boes
Guest

We remember the Ford brothers for the same reason that people remember other disasters – as a warning that it can happen again.
And Ron C.’s fatal flaw is his predeliction to hire and promote prettyboys with no talent. Anyone who saw that happen on OLTL with that horrid trio rightfully has concerns that it could happen again.

Mitchell1660

What was wrong with the Ford brothers?? Since when is it a crime to be good looking?!

Soap Executive Producers and writers who create a character are paid royalties, so for every character Ron & Frank bring back, that’s a royalty paid to whoever created that character (Lucas, Julian, all the vets). So when you give credit to the 2 of them for bringing people back, you need to understand that they also have an interest in creating their own legacy. At least they’re creating a legacy using veterans as well as newbies. I can’t say previous regimes have done the same.

Well the PCPD does need more detectives, right now it is just Anna ( who is the commissioner and should be doing desk work not tracking bad guys) and Dante, (who lets face facts hasn’t been working too much at his job lately). Not sure about hiring a model and untrained actor for the part when there are so many gifted, experienced, and handsome actors needing work– but I get you don’t have to pay these wet behind the ears types the cash a seasoned professional deserves. So yes, imo the department needs beefing up, but would prefer to see… Read more »

Wowsa! Pre-judgment much! First of all, he hasn’t aired yet. I remember all people had when Bryan Craig was cast as Morgan was a ‘goth’ looking headshot. His appearance was so not ‘goth’. No big acting credits for Craig either but he has more than surpassed expectations, especially sharing screen time with heavy-weights Maurice and Maura. Also, the casting director at GH is not the same casting director that OLTL had. Yes, most are cast on looks, this is a soap after all. Every soap is guilty, some more than others. GH, in my opinion has only had a few… Read more »

No-one else has seen him act because he HASN’T ACTED before, other than ONE short film. That’s it. He comes from the modeling world. Sure, he could be fine, but anyone who has been watching soaps for the past 15 years, no matter the show, has reason to be concerned that precious airtime will be taken up ONCE again by someone learning on the job, hired solely because of looks. It’s not like the guy has a body of work to his credit – so far, just the body. So everyone acting surprised and shocked that people are gunshy after… Read more »

General Hospital is about the city of Port Charles. New characters must be worked into the canvas for excitement. Love the veterans but, even they were newbies at one time. Let’s give Ron a chance to work his magic.

THANK YOU! How boring would the show be if there were never any new characters? ALL of the beloved characters of Port Charles were “newbies” at one time or another and were hated by some long-time fans who thought they were taking the place of other characters. My babysitter couldn’t stand Bobbie Spencer when she first showed up and Laura Webber was accused of “taking over the show.”

Lizzie???? I’m not a Liz Webber fan…but she need somebody(anybody besides AJ)
Britt?? I don’t care for her
Sabrina??? She got so much story line, I doubt it….
Lulu??? But she is married to Dante…but will she stray???hum….
Maxie??? Kristen suppose to be going on Maternity leave soon (he may be for her when she

Please give Nathan West to Sabrina she needs a love interest and a surrogate father for her baby, who would not place them in jeopardy with his line of work! And Carlos is such a loser and I am finding it hard to understand why he wasn’t dispose of, when the opportunity presented itself in the warehouse. I promise, no one would miss his character!!!

Ok first, he is good looking.but please he’s not the best looking guy. Just because a guy is hot, doesn’t mean he can’t act, he can. Wow, take a chill pill! Let the man do his job! Ladies stop drooling over him. Sexual harassment goes both ways. From the comments I read, you are all acting like he’s your possession. Watch the show, it’s for Entertainment purposes only, or are you going to be like the viewer who sent presents to Luke and Laura’s Wedding. Chill!

So far, while we haven’t seen much of him – I’m cautiously optimistic. I thought his scenes with Maxie were really good!!

But lord, wipe this one off the canvas ASAP. I knowww there’s a guy out there just as attractive with the acting chops to back it up and the ability to hang with such soap greats!

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
