As previously reported, the annual “General Hospital” Fan Club weekend will take place from Thursday, July 31 through Monday, August 4 at the Sportmen’s Lodge Hotel and Events Center in Studio City, CA. Tickets for the Kick Off Cocktail Party, Main Cast and Blast from the Past – Part II events went on sale last week Monday.
Recently, the fan club announced additional events for several “GH” stars including mainstays Rebecca Herbst, Lisa LoCicero, Tyler Christopher, Laura Wright, Kelly Moncao, Kirsten Storms, Jason Thompson and Dominic Zamprogna. Joining the actors this year with their own events will be Michael Easton, Ryan Paevey, Kathleen Gati, and even the return of Karaoke night, now hosted by Sean Blakemore, Marc Anthony Samuel and Parry Shen.
After someone pulled a social media fast one on fans of ABC’s “General Hospital” last week by claiming to be the soap’s newest star, Ryan Paevey (Nathan West), the actor’s management team confirmed today that the actor is now officially on Twitter.
The company, Justice & Ponder (@JusticePonder), tweeted earlier today, “Todd & Ryan Paevey in our office and as of today his REAL Twitter user name is @RyanPaevey.” The tweet was accompanied by a picture of Paevey and his co-manager, Todd Justice.
Fans had inquired with us whether the Twitter handle @Ryan_Paevey was in fact “General Hospital’s” newest stars’ social media address. Sadly, as we always suspected, the account is in fact not real. A rep for the soap confirms that the account is not the actor’s and subsequently, the handle has been deleted. Additionally, Justice & Ponder, a management firm based in Los Angeles, which represents Paevey, confirmed the fake account when it said, “SOOOO, it turns out @Ryan_Paevey is not our client RYAN PAEVEY and we are alerting Twitter now that this is an impostor using his name.” The company notes that the actor will begin using the social media platform for the first time sometime next week when he begins tweeting via his (real) account.
As a result of the Friday, December 20 preemption, ABC’s “General Hospital’s” is currently behind in its airing schedule. What that means is that the previously scheduled “Home for the Holidays” themed episode set to air today, will instead air on Friday, December 27. Also shifted is the debut of “GH” newcomer Ryan Paevey in the contract role of Nathan West. The character, who was originally set to debut on tomorrow’s episode, will instead debut on the Monday, December 30 episode in scenes alongside Kirsten Storms‘ Maxie Jones, who seeks to get out of town just as Port Charles gets ready to celebrate the New Year as a result of the recent baby drama and the need to clear her head. In real-life, Storms is headed for maternity leave as she’s due to give birth in January to a little girl by husband and former “GH” co-star, Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara).
With the impending debut of Ryan Paevey on Monday, December 30 in the contract role of Detective Nathan West on ABC’s “General Hospital,” many have noted that they’ve seen “that guy” before and if you’re one of the millions of users that watched Christina Aguilera‘s “Your Body” music video on YouTube last year, you’re definitely on the right track. In the video, which shows Aguilera taking control against a male dominated society, Paevey is spotted flirting with the singer while they play a game of pool before heading to the bathroom for a little fun, but instead turns into something blue!
“General Hospital” head writer Ron Carlivati tweeted about a newcomer hitting Port Charles and now Soap Opera Network has the details! Per a rep for the show, actor/model Ryan Paevey is joining the cast of the soap in the contract role of Nathan West, a detective working for the Port Charles Police Department.
Originally scheduled to debut on the Friday, December 27 episode in scenes alongside Kirsten Storms‘ Maxie Jones, Paevey will instead make his debut on Monday, December 30 as a result of the Friday, December 20 national preemption by President Obama.
In his tweet, Carlivati said, “Look who’s coming to Port Charles…,” which was accompanied by a posed professional photo of Paevey. The writer subsequently tweeted, “To those who were asking me about this guy, google Ryan Paevey. #Enjoy.”
Enjoy they shall!
