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.

I really liked Meeting Mr Darcy last month and can’t wait for the wedding. Hope we get to see those cute little puppies all grown up. You really are missed in Port Charles. Wishing you much success.

Hi Ryan, I wish you much success you are a rare bread these day, your are talented, hamdsome and most of all a true gentlemen. Thank you for your smile and real personality.

^^^ 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

Salute

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.

Just an FYI that’s not Ryan’s personal website.. it’s run by a fan…@yasmin86. Ryan was just awesome enough to send it to her because all she has done promoting all his projects. Just shows how much he cares about his fans

And let’s not forget he makes jewelry in his spare time!! THIS MAN ROCKS!!

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, so much so, that many fans might find it difficult to go from losing the character to seeing him talking about his jewelry line (It IS nice; must admit) to them the same day and maybe they’d rather talk about that since “it” just happened.

Bam! No response; he just blocked the person. (I learned after reading other tweets that he’d discussed his character’s death a few days before but still, I thought is reaction extreme and rude.) Turned me off so…great looking guy but not impressed with his inability to express himself when he’s obviously pissed. Billy Flynn on the other hand…too funny! He does nothing BUT express himself and let’s people go at it..even if it’s at him.

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!

rebecca1

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 or asking for money to fund one of their projects. I think it’s the ultimate in taking advantage of fan loyalty. I’m quite sure many of these actors make a heck of a lot more money than their “devotees.” But this guy just shut down someone who wasn’t even rude! He/she actually complimented him by saying fans were devastated and “grieving” Nathan’s death (something like that) so maybe the timing to sell his stuff was “off”…again…not verbatim but that he/she’s hoped he’d be addressing the death (day of “funeral” I believe.) I agreed with the tweeter but didn’t step into the fray. Just got turned off/tuned out. Really, he could have just thanked the fan for being so affected by his character’s death; by his portrayal. Anyway, he just shut the person down. And of course his devoted fans defended him. So silly. And egotistical.

That’s why many times I’d rather not know a character’s portrayer. Same thing with Hollywood; doncha think? We LOVE an actor and then don’t like his/her political views or they come off as ridiculous in other ways and it just breaks that fourth wall when we go back and watch them on screen. I guess that’s where the power of imagination and the ability to suspend disbelief kicks in and we block out the “real” person behind the character we love.

Ahhhh…the psychologoy of it all! 😉 Now let’s get back to Chase! 😉

Soaphound
Soaphound

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 you watching Connie Britton on “9-1-1”? It’s on leave right now, but she’s really good in it. Still miss Rayna, though.

rebecca1

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 think he’s great looking. Michael? Objectively I think Chad Duell is a great looking guy, too. I look at it this way…if I passed him on the street would I do a double take? LOL…answer is yes. I just think he was saddled with such a non-sexual role that he doesn’t come across as a hot dude. It’s like he’s always “good” Michael; Sonny and Carly’s little boy. They seem to be giving him more backbone these days but they’ve really have to cut him loose from Carly; she detracts from my seeing him as a man. (In reality, he’s dating the very cool, beautiful Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra from B&B) and when I visualize them together just out and about I see “Chad”; not Michael. Whew! Some explanation, huh?

YES!!!! I LOVE 9-1-1! I hate to break this to you but…Connie’s leaving THAT show, too!!!! Apparently she doesn’t want to be a regular (which is why I guess they had her go off to Ireland) so in an attempt to keep her own I think she’ll either come back eventually or make “visits.” So, expect a new 9-1-1 operator. Also, I wasn’t surprised by the date at the end; were you? As soon as Bobby (Peter Krause) said he had a date I knew it’d be Angela Bassett. I guess “Stella’s” getting her groove back again! 😉

that pic ^^^ the resemblance with him and Britta. STRIKING.

shucks gosh darned it all. when you have that familial intrigue w/

Dr. Leisl / Nina / Ryan / Brita THIS IS WHAT WE YEARN FOR. plus Maxie and his child on the way.

THIS WAS IT

at least a real family on which to draw from. so much potential. it was all their

just had to let you know , how much , you added to

Hello Ryan! This is blanche from Toronto Ontario Canada. I really enjoyed seeing you on GH and do miss you very much as one of your many fans. Where is Canada are you shooting. Good luck on all your future projects in this new journey you have embarked on. Will it be part of the hallmark channel

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 as a proud Canadian – very excited that you will be here – and very curious where you are shooting.

Hugs and Love from Canada

Jeannie

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

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Should Drew Get The Flash Drive Back, But Lose The Last Five Years Of His Life In Doing So?

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) is faced with a dilemma that could change the course of his life forever.  It all comes down to DA Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), and her vendetta against Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and how she is leveraging her possession of the flash drive that holds all of Drew’s memories and the key to his past.

In a confrontation at the Metro Court, Drew comes over to talk to Margaux, where he says he is not sure why he hasn’t taken it upon himself to turn her into the cops.  She adamantly points out that she is an attorney, and that he has no evidence that could be used against her in a court of law.  While she goes on about making Sonny pay for what he did to her father, she tries to get Drew to come along with her in her vendetta.  Drew refuses, not because of Sonny or Jason (Steve Burton), but he does not want to do this to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and have Danny be without his father.

Drew then stands up to her and tells he he knows she has been manipulating him for months. Even knowing she has the key to his life with the flashdrive that hold all of his missing years, Drew tells Margaux that she can hold this over his head, but even if he had the flashdrive there is a chance that the procedure to restore his memories could go wrong, and the sad fact that in doing the procedure, he will definitely lose the last five years of his life and all of those memories with Sam and more.  He says to Margaux that those memories mean everything to him.

A confident and irritated Marqaux tells him she is sure he will want the flash drive one day and that he knows her terms if she was to give it to him – helping her bring down Sonny and Jason for the murder of her father.   Drew is left with a difficult decision, while Margaux gets into an elevator and begins to cry over wanting to avenge her father’s death.  But little does she know, that evidence could prove that he was not the man she thinks he was.

So this begs the question to GH fans: Would you like to see Drew retrieve all of his memories as Andrew Cain, at the cost of losing the last five year of his life since being in Port Charles …  or should Drew leave his mind and memories alone and just go forward keeping the last five years in tact, and foregoing what other important history in his life that he may need to know now, or in the future?

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
