Ryan Paevey Releases Video "Thank You" To GH Fans And Reveals His Next Project!

Courtesy/RyanPaevey.net

This week, General Hospital fans who have missed Ryan Paevey, since Nathan West’s heartbreaking death on the ABC daytime drama series, received a video message from Ryan himself.

Posted on his website, RyanPaevey.net, the actor said, “I wanted to say thank you for your kind words, for your support, for everything. From my first day on the show to my last day on the show.  I really needed some support, and it meant a lot to me at a time where I was really just trying to figure out what I was doing in front of my feet.”

Pevey goes to relay that he will send a more “tangible” ‘thank you’ soon, and that GH was his start and a great place to call home for four years.

Paevey then announced he is now in Canada shooting the Hallmark movie, Marrying Mr. Darcy.

Watch Ryan’s video message after the jump.  Then let us know if you will be following the progression of Ryan’s career from his start on the soaps via the comment section below.

^^^ what a NICE post. wholeheartedly agree. outside of his physicality. in 4 years WORTH. we go to see him become even more. I oft feel he should trust in himself more. he’s got it. He is more fun to watch @GH than a good majority. I like your post about “thank you for your smile…” it’s almost like he genuinely smiles and you see a breakthrough ” do not hesitate just go for it. @GH will regret killing him off. ugh! if you think Peter August , his brother, is going to make it any different … think again… Read more »

This time the killoff of Nathan was the real deal..
A body, a funeral, and it would be very hard to bring back Nathan, unlike the no body kill-offs..

No rerun with Nathan ..

I say as much ^^^ because from day 1 I pulled for him to succeed. no matter how oft it was said his start out of the gate was wooden.

the progression… happened. no matter how much we wanted to see the rest of the cast. when the writers did feature , outside of Sonny and Carly

it kinda makes you pull for and enjoy the cast that much more.

I will probably be following Ryan because I also enjoyed “Meeting Mr Darcy.” And others on the Hallmark Channel when I want a lighter/feelgood story. I especially like “Good Witch” on Hallmark. But start from the beginning.

No longer a fan. Saw the way he behaved on Twitter to one user and it turned me off. I don’t post on Twitter but I sporadically click on an actor’s page…Billy Flynn from DOOL has quite the “active” profile. Very politically charged but makes for interesting reading! Anyway, I think it was the day of “Nathan’s” funeral (which really got to me; so well done and so sad) and I checked out his page to “commune” LOL, with fellow “grief-stricken” fans but Ryan was selling his jewelry line. Some “tweeter” suggested very nicely that he/she/fans really admired his work,… Read more »

Well, rebecca1, I never really liked or disliked him. I tend to wish (most) daytime actors well mainly because they’re so underrated. And…this Chase guy is more my type. He has a kind of sweetness in between those astonishing good looks, and he’s already learning some acting tricks that I like. So, I’m more than thankful in that way that Ryan left. We owe him one!

Hey, Soaphound… I’m lovin” “Chase!” First, I think he’s spectacular looking; he’s a combination of cute/good-looking/sexy. All three. And he can ACT! Just very natural and I think he’s the most realistic cop GH has ever had. Don’t get me wrong; I loved/love Mac, Anna, Dante. But there’s something about this actor playing a cop that’s very real. His expression, demeanor…something. Anyway, major crush. (LOL; thankfully crushes don’t dwindle with age. Nutthin’ like a good crush to defy the passage of time! 😉 As for Ryan, showed his true colors. I’m not a fan of any actor peddling his/her wares… Read more »

Oh rebecca1, I should have known you’d be my fan ally over Josh Swickard (Chase). What is it about this guy…the smile, the soulful eyes, that spectacular wave in his hair… He’s the whole package for me. I hope he gets good scene partners (God please, not Lulu) and a decent first story. I never warmed to Nathan or Dante (or Sonny, Patrick, Peter/Heinrich, Michael, Jason) but I really like this guy. I don’t see why they’re already hiding that beautiful face with a beard (just like Drew). They’re ACTORS for goodness sake…Let’s See their faces! Thanks, rebecca1. Hey, are… Read more »

Hey Soaphound… I hope Monsieur Chase is on for the long run. First, we have to get to the story behind him and Finn. They must have made them brothers for a reason; wonder what the deal with that is. Have to admit Sonny was gorgeous back in the day (have you seen him from decades ago? I loved Patrick, I DO think Jason is quite the looker and I really like Peter! I probably mentioned this and you probably know it but he’s Laura Wright’s guy in real life. His pics..with longer, sort of wavy harir and casual clothes…I… Read more »

Hi Ryan I’ve been a Nathan and Naxie fan since you showed up at Maxie’s door, four years ago. Loved watching you grow as an actor – and your storylines with that incredibly talented cast. Your funeral was beautifully done and had me crying for days – lol. But am looking forward to seeing you more on the small screen – and maybe the big screen someday as well. I bought a necklace and picture from your website – and they are both wonderfully beautiful and unique. Can’t wait to see you in the next Mr. Darcy movie – and… Read more »

Ryan, wishing you only the best! Glad we get to see you as Mr Darcy again, but we miss you so much on GH that we could just cry. You will not be forgotten, and success is our dream for you, but we love Nathan and if we could have our way, he’d be back on GH everyday. With much Love, Trish

General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn Chats On Her Daytime Emmy-Nominated Performance and Its Significance

When the nominations were revealed for the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, General Hospital mainstay, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), was recognized for her stunning work in the Alexis-centric standalone episode which honored her 25th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series.

Grahn, is already a two-time Daytime Emmy winner.  She won back in 1989 in a tie for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work as Julia Wainwright on Santa Barbara along with All My Children’s Debbi Morgan, and again received the honors in that category in 2012 for her work on General Hospital.

Now. she is vying for the gold in 2022 in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category against other formidable actresses including: B&B’s Kimberlin Brown, DAYS Stacy Haiduk, Y&R’s Melissa Ordway, and her GH castmate, Kelly Thiebaud.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Nancy to talk about her decision to enter the Emmy race this year, her powerful and moving scenes, why this nomination is significant and important to her, and her take on some very important social issues of our time.

Always candid, insightful, combined with great humor and wit, here’s what Nancy had to share below, and make sure to check out GH this week when sparks fly between Alexis and Gregory (Gregory Harrison). Will he turn out to be the new beau in Alexis’ life? Stay tuned.

Congratulations on the Emmy nomination.  How do you feel about being in the running again, especially with the material from your 25th anniversary episode?

NANCY:  You know, I don’t submit myself if I don’t think I have something, and I didn’t last year.  This year, I had the one show, and the first reason I submitted myself was I had the episode that was worthy of the competition. These judges have to sit, and watch this stuff, and very often, it’s hard to watch soap opera scenes.  It really is, unless you’re in it.  It’s a different kind of material that most primetime people aren’t used to watching.  So, it’s tricky business.  I don’t want to put them through anything too awful. I don’t want to torture them and I’ve judged before. It can be a bit tedious. So, for me to submit myself, I thought, it has to be something that isn’t going to torture another human being. The second thing is, older women get marginalized the older they get, and they get diminished very often, and every time we get nominated, it means something different to me.  This time, to me, I want it to somehow be symbolic, or a shoutout to women who are still producing, who have been doing their job for a long time and are still doing it good enough, and that it’s still worthy of respect and recognition.

When we were at the GH Convention back in March, I played the scene on-stage for the fans in attendance of when Alexis goes over to the corner of Kevin’s office and heals her younger self.  You saw the reaction just from the fans.  It’s such a beautiful moment within the story.  What did you think about how the standalone episode was crafted?

NANCY:  It was a different experience for me because GH co-head writers Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, and script writer, Scott Sickles gave it the attention, but even more to that, they allowed me to participate in the creation of it.  They allowed the director, Phideaux Xavier, to participate.  We all sat in a room.  They said, “You know what?  Make it how you’re comfortable with it.”  There were so many people who gave it time and effort, and Phideaux gets a lot of credit because he came up with a lot of ideas.  So, the little girl in the therapy room wasn’t initially a part of it.  That was Phideaux’s idea, and they let us alter things, and they allowed me to write some words that meant something to me with the character.  Our producers, Michelle Henry and M.K Weir, who I both adore, were also a part of this.

Courtesy/ABC

That is great to hear that you were involved in the collaborative process of the creation of the episode.

NANCY:  We read through the whole script, and we worked it like you would on primetime. We went through it like, “Does this moment work?  Does that moment work?  Does this make sense?  Does that make sense?”  We never do that in soaps.  We don’t get to that.  So, it was a gift to me.  It really was. Chris and Dan, and Scott and Phideaux, and the two producers, generosity in gifting me that experience and making sure that it was to everybody’s liking, was really very special to me, and it meant a lot.

Did you come up with the key lines which summarized Alexis as a person and her journey: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a fighter, and an idealist and an advocate?”

NANCY:  No. They designed it, but we were allowed to enhance and contribute creatively to it, and, we don’t normally have the time to do that.  They don’t have the time to – and you can’t allow people to do that with every episode, to be creatively participating, because it would turn into madness with everybody.

Then, when it came down to choosing the scenes from your anniversary episode to include for your Emmy submission, was that a challenging process of which moments to go with?

NANCY:  I just told a little story with it with the time that I had, and so, I edited it with a friend of mine.  I did a sort of pre-edit on it, I’m good at that, and handed the timeline to our editor, who nicely put it together. It took very little effort.

In my humble opinion, I think that episode featured one of your all-time best performances.

NANCY: Thank you. There was a nice effort from everybody, from the lighting to everybody else, and all the effort Phideaux put into it.  He worked so hard on that!  It was fun for us.  It was like the old days where you really got to work something out.

Photo: ABC

It truly harkened back to everything we knew up to that point about Alexis and her past as well, and included a montage of scenes over the years.

NANCY:  I think it was M.K. who put that together, but when you’re working at the pace we’re working now, to have to sit and put together a montage of twenty-five years, that’s not an easy feat.  Nobody has time for that anymore, but they did it, and like I said, it was really, really appreciated.  My only thought with it is that I wanted it to be relatable to other people.  I didn’t want it to just be some, you know, self-indulgent Alexis episode. I knew that by bringing in the little girl and talking about people being hurt in their childhood and how that makes somebody feel that it was probably relatable to many people, and so it became meaningful to other people and not just me.

Do you think you’ll attend the Daytime Emmys? I know the last time you won you were not present.

NANCY:  Yeah, I’m planning on it.  I mean, barring anything happening! (Laughs)

Does it feel nice to be recognized by your peers?

NANCY:  Of course, it does.  It always does, and way too often, women who are still producing well in their jobs, don’t get the respect and the acknowledgment for it.  So, that’s why I’m saying, this is no small thing, and that I want other women to know that I know that, and that I wish for them the same thing.

What was the reaction of your daughter, Kate and your fiancé, Richard, when you told them you were Emmy-nominated?

NANCY:  Richie goes, “What is this?  Your 18th nomination?” (Laughs). You know what I mean?  It was just kind of like, “Yeah, sure, why wouldn’t you be?” It wasn’t like, “Oh, my God!”  It was like they kind of expected that.  That was nice!  I’m glad they feel that way.  I’m glad they weren’t surprised.  They were like, “Sure!  Of course, you would be.  Why wouldn’t you be?”  I said, “You know, it doesn’t always work like that!”

Photo: JPI

Now comes the part of having to find a dress and all that goes with it for the red carpet.  Do you enjoy that part?

NANCY:  No, I hate that part.  That is my… oh ‘boohoo’, you know?  I mean, I have to find something to wear.  Also, the older you get, that becomes so much less important, and the more makeup, and the more hair, and the more foofy, the more ridiculous I look. I start looking like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.  You’ve just got to keep it simple.

You were talking about women and ageism.  Do you not feel that also exists for men?

NANCY:  It exists for men, but it’s not at all on the same par as women.  I mean, men still get paid more than women, and men still are valued more than women.  I mean, there are exceptions, but if you look in any place of employment, even the soaps, you will typically find the men making more money than the women, and the older the women get, the less they get.  Life’s not fair right now.  It’s fairer than it was, but still the equality game is not won yet.

Photo: JPI

I know how much all of this means to you in terms of equality for women, and people being run out of their jobs because of their age.

NANCY:  It’s just a reality.  It’s not something that I’m hopeless about, but I have a story to tell.  I’ll tell it when the time is right.  It’s life!  It happens in every field everywhere.  When my mom was 70, she was still producing the exact same way she was producing when she was 30, and she got run out, and was replaced by a man who was 40 or something, and there was no particular reason for it.  It was just, “You’re done.  We decided you’re done,” but like I said, it happens everywhere, in every line of work, and that’s why I just wanted to give a shout-out, when you still, after 36 years, can be recognized or shown respect or acknowledgment for what your do.  It’s a very big deal that I am appreciative of and grateful for.

So, rooting for Nancy to win the Outstanding Supporting Actress prize? Happy she was nominated for her work in the the milestone episode devoted to Alexis? Share your thoughts in the comment section below, and to tune-in to the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.
