Wes Ramsey has been cast in the newly created role of Peter August.

Ramsey, who is known to soap audiences for his role as Sam on Guiding Light, as well as Days of our Lives and on the digital drama series, Venice, will begin appearing on the ABC soap in a key November sweeps storyline.

Look for Ramsey to show up on the November 14th episode.

As fans have witnessed over the last several months on social media, Wes is currently dating GH’s Laura Wright (Carly).  Will Carly and Peter cross paths in story?

The talented actor took to his Twitter feed after TV Line exclusively revealed the casting news today stating: “An exciting new chapter!!!”, and “So thrilled to finally be able to share this!!! Port Charles is a dream come true!!! #grateful

Jimh…I have come to the conclusion it is GH in name only.

Well said, Jimh. GH should have a revolving door out front. Sadly for the good ones they unwisely let go and for the new ones that dock for a while. It’s ridiculous.

I won’t pretend to claim I watched every epi of GL but I couldn’t remember him. There’s a reason. Both wiki and IMDB have him at less than ten episodes. Blink much?

I wish every actor well. So I’ll do the same hear. But it’s not the return of Tom Pelphrey, is it?

I wish Tom Pelphrey was on a soap again. He’s too talented and handsome not to be.

Sam was Olivia Spencer’s brother. I think he was on GL for more than ten episodes.

No. He played Olivia’s brother for almost 2 years and returned for guest spots too. This is going back 17 years, mind you. I like him as an actor. I had NO idea whatsoever that he was dating Wright!! Viewers have spoken…..they do not like short term stunt casting that goes nowhere. Why not look at the canvas, and see some holes that need filled, and THEN bring in some of these bigger name actors? For instance, Lucky is gone. This actor is in that age range. Lucky is a character viewers WANT to see, and is a character that… Read more »

IMDB is wrong (as it often is, unfortunately, in regard to soaps–and it wasn’t that way in the early days, so I don’t know what happened). WR played Sam, Olivia’s younger brother, for about two years, on contract, circa 2000. It was when Claire Labine was the head writer. Sam was part of the teen set at the time and involved in a triangle with Marah and Tony. After GL, he did some independent movies but then sort of disappeared (or maybe I wasn’t paying attention to the right sources of information), other than Crystal Chappell’s web soap Venice. He’s… Read more »

Laura was married for many many years. I believe she divorced in 15 or 16. Regarding your comment of them being “sold on the concept”….I totally agree, and isn’t it sad? I am loving the show actually right now, even though it has actually come full circle back to the Guza/Phelps vision of the Sonny/Carly/Brain Damaged Murderer Jason. I don’t get it. Fans have LOUDLY proclaimed their dislike and disdain for that version of GH. Message boards are there for people to read, and you can’t tell me that the powers that be don’t read them, so WHY is the… Read more »

Wes Ramsey was a contract player for several years on GL and on way, way more than 10 episodes. Wiki and IMDB are flat-out wrong. He played good guy Sam, an aspiring journalist who worked at the local newspaper with Holly. He was the younger brother of Olivia (Crystal Chappell) and tried unsuccessfully to keep her on the straight and narrow. He was in a love triangle with Marah (Reva’s daughter) and bad-boy Tony (Jordi Vilasuso). Marah, of course, went for the bad boy and broke his heart. He’s a fine actor, very likable and watchable.

Hey, su,
Never heard of him either…I looked him up. What a hunk!! He looks sooo young!!
There’s a picture of him with LW. I thought he was her son. HaHa……not that much age difference; but, he does not look his age. Very youthful appearance; comparatively speaking, that is.

I had no idea Wes Ramsey was dating Laura Wright. Interesting since they were on Guiding Light together like 15 years ago (geez!) when his character Sam was interested in her character Cassie’s niece Marah.

Another new character? Don’t care. Where are the lovely Laura and Kevin? Where are Bobbie, Mac, Scotty, Felicia, Lucy, Monica, Brad, lucas, Molly, TJ????
Characters disappear for weeks or months at a time.

I read a rumor elsewhere that they might be bringing this guy on as a Nikolas recast, in an attempt to redeem Val the Bastard from being a murderer. Considering Claudette – the other person Val was said to have murdered – is also rumored to be returning, this would be consistent. Perhaps both of them were stashed in the Russian clinic, since we know Val has some influence there…… and even if this guy is not a Nikolas recast (I don’t think they should bother with the character until Tyler is available) he might be involved with the clinic… Read more »

He’s gorgeous, sexy and talented but GH already has too many men. We have two Jasons and only one Sam. Lizzy is with Franco and so one of those three men will be the odd one out.
Amy’s brother is coming to the canvas, Tamara Braun is coming back as Oscar’s mum and Brie Williamson is coming back as Claudette.

I loved him on GL and everything else I have seen him in! I hope he isn’t going to be a wedge for Sonny and Carly. I wouldn’t mind him being a Nicolas recast, since I think that character is sorely needed in PC, but I also liked Nick Suble (sp?) when he finished out Nic’s story line. Hope Wes’ character is on for more than a month and isn’t involved with the Russian clinic. That being said, I have the feeling that GH is the show where out-of-work actors apply for bit-parts just so they qualify for their cards… Read more »

I’m thinking he may be Oscar’s father…Tamara Braun probably his mom…both will come in contact with Sonny and Carly.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
