417 January 30th, 2018 Ryan Paevey On Departing General Hospital: “The Decision To Leave Was Mine”

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

It’s a five-hankie day and more on General Hospital, as viewers had suspected Detective Nathan West has been written-off the show, thus signaling the departure of Ryan Paevey.

Paevey had played the part for the last four years.  During a live #AskGH tweet session with fans this afternoon, Ryan let them know that the decision to exit the long running ABC daytime drama series was his, not a decision by the powers-that-be.

In his tweets, Ryan revealed, “Okay guys, so to get this one out of the way early… for now, yes, Nathan West will be gone.  The decision to leave was mine. @valentinifrank and I sat down to talk as gentleman, and while he was disappointed, he gave me a better send-off than I ever could have asked for, and I will always be grateful. Cut the guy some slack, his job is hard, and thankless.”

Later he added about his final scenes on-camera with his co-stars, especially his on-screen lady love, Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “My death. We all cried….it really felt like a goodbye. After four plus years, your relationship with people goes beyond just dialogue on a set.”

So, what do you think about Ryan’s exit from GH as Nathan West? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    Just watching when Nathan flatlined…my heart is broken. I wish they just would have put him in a coma, but reading all the spoilers, I guess this is it for his character. So sad. I wish Ryan the best and look forward to seeing more of his work. I love his Hallmark movies. Good luck!

    I was sad when I watch GH and see Nathan’s dad shot him but he wasn’t dead at the time but when he died it was sad and especially with Maxi . Tonight at his funeral it was sad like it’s real and after everyone started to cry it makes me cry too like I’m at a real funeral I’m so sorry for Maxi and her unborn child I hope they could find someone to be with her as Nathan when her child is going to born

    I watch GH after I get home from work each day. My sobbing has gotten progressively worse as the week as gone on. The last scene with Maxie & Nathan was so raw and beautiful. You felt as if you were with them. Great acting. I’ll truly miss Ryan. Great acting, seems to be a really great guy to men & women and just to mention the obvious; SO Hot. I know he has to look after his career and needs challenges, so I wish him well, but gads . . . His will truly be a tough act to follow. Bye Ryan. XO

    The whole show is getting out of hand. Loosing too many main characters. I am afraid this will be a rating loss. Sure hope they rethink some of the decisions they have made in the last year.

    He was such a kindred spirit and likeable guy. There was definite chemistry
    With he and Maxi. It won’t be the same without him. I’m really kinda sad
    And angry that they let him leave. Seriously, thinking it’s not worth watching when such a vital character like Nathan West leaves. You should do SLK
    you can to bring him back. Maybe write the storyline
    that in order to find out who the other son is of that crazy Cesar
    that Nathan had to fake bring dead. Seriously bring him back soon or I will have to not watch it anymore!

    Sorry but the show is going down hill. 41 yrs gone. Finally had a great story line, just because the other Jason is back does not make the soap batter. Shame on you writers for killing him off, something else could have been done to leave room for possible new story line or replacement. I’m finished. Thank you for 40 years, but maybe time to put this soap to rest.

    Sad to see Nathan die. Hate to see them dragging out the Anna-Henrik-Drew-Jason-Valentin debacle. Glad to see Maxie’s sister comfort her. Touching scenes. With all of the real life police deaths it was truly emotional but nice tribute too see Final Watch Call. God bless our first responders serving and protecting with honor.

    I am completely saddened to read and watch this! I love Ryan’s work and his character Nathan West! For me it is about legacy, and having married Frisco and Felicia’s daughter Maxie makes it extremely hard because I like to have family members of P.C.’s most important families in town. Nathan and Maxie were my daytime couple since Robin and Patrick left! I know that GH was Ryan’s first job, he is very talented, and like many actors want to try other things. I just wasn’t expecting it so soon! I have watched in two Hallmark movies and look forward to others. I am disappointed in some fans who have been rude to Ryan on his departure. I personally, do not want a recast and hope that by Ryan’s comment that Nathan is gone for now means he is open to returning!! Good Ryan, you will definitely be missed!

    Nicely put. His Hallmark movies are awesome. I expect no less from a talent such as his. Ryan, goodbye, FOR NOW…….best of luck in all future endeavors, but PLEASE, reconsider and come back. Take it from a fan of GH since the beginning (thank you Grandma!!), if anyone can bring characters back to life believably, for the most part (look at Robin and Jason to name two), its Frank Valentini. God bless you whatever you decide.

    Ryan Paevey is a good guy. He has grown as an actor most definitely. I know it was his decision to leave but Frank Valentini is not really focused on saving actors such as Ryan. He is too busy trying to build up on his investment with the JM character. I wish Ryan much luck in whatever he does after GH. Watching him leave the show was hard. No he wasn’t a central legacy character but he fit a special place in the canvas of GH. I don’t care for the direction GH has gone in as of late but I still support them. Good luck Ryan.

    Nathan’s exit today was rather meh. You could see it coming from a mile away with everyone going in to see him and tell him how much they loved him. And jeez — the show couldn’t afford to have Mac and Felicia there for their daughter?

    On a side note, no matter how grave Faison’s injuries why weren’t there guards outside his room? Oh yeah, because then Jason couldn’t just walk in. Hey — I think I’m starting to get the hang of this “don’t ask logical questions when you watch GH” thing…

    It was a five-hankie day, certainly. An exceptional, emotionally charged episode of General Hospital. Ryan Paevey, to me, comes across as exceptionally kind, genuine, sweet, funny-and such a fine specimen of a man. I read his tweets and watched and cried and wished he were staying and Maxie was leaving. No idea he made jewelry, and he made some really kind statements regarding Frank-perhaps allowing people to see things from another perspective. I was not impressed with Maxie’s performance throughout this tragedy. Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford were exceptional. I get really angry with things they do on this show-then an episode like today comes along and knocks it out of the park.

    Much as I love Ryan, as Nathan, they should not have killed Nathan. Love the character and Ryan has done a wonderful job. But they should have had Nathan go on assignment, go get FBI training, WSB training, witness protection, whatever something instead of his. Then they should have replaced him (as used to be done all the time.( Then when Ryan was ready to come back, he could come back and it would not be a stupid back from the dead storyline.s Actors often decide after having a good role on a soap, that it was the best job they ever had, regardless the character ws wonderful and should not have been killed off. It used to be they routinely replaced actors when they left. I’m sure this was a wonderful send off for Ryan, and I’m glad he’s happy. He seems like a great guy, and boy is he the most handsome guy I’ve seen in years. I can think of only him, the actor who played Robin’s husband, Patrick, and the actor who played McDreamy who are that handsome. But by doing this so he couldn’t come back, or it was lazy writing. or a stupid idea. Between this and what they did to Genie, I’m about done.

    Exactly, Ryan may have originated role and was good but not on that long or that big of a role that another actor could not take his place. If they could replace the actress that played Babe on All My Children and the actress who originated Lulu and many others on soaps then they could have gotten a different actor to play Nathan West.

    Brenda Carlisle replied

    I agree just say so and so is now playing the role of Nathan West. We know it’s not real life. Nathan needs to be there for his kids birth the character deserves that.

    Natalie replied

    I commented on another page Lin that you had wonderful ideas for ways Nathan could’ve been written of for awhile! Why must it be a death? I would have even accepted Nathan trading places with Maxie and him going with Faison to only escape or be rescued later. Ryan loves action things and is always looking for more, so why not give it to him in storylines? I think Ryan wants to explore new avenues, but I just hope that he will return to GH sometime!

    I – am – REALLY – hoping

    his death was staged… for the protection of his wife and unborn child.

    after all… they had tht intimate – beautiful -talk.. Nathan got to feel the baby move.

    he said I love you … and seemed to drift off

    heart pull and tug… maxie looks on .. “Nathan”

    fade out

    BEAUTIFULLY DONE

    doesn’t matter how many times we’ve watched scenes like this. “Nathan”

    I want that preventive measures are being taken… surprise even the audience and … he returns … for his wife and unborn. this would erupt the whole audience

    Sue replied

    I think with Nathan dying off GH will never bring him back. And then again it was his decision to leave. Now with Jason back I don’t think it would be a good idea. However, they never showed Jason dead. I wonder since Nicholas and Morgan’s body were never found if either one of them will return. Nathan will be missed. Please don’t let Maxi lose the baby!

    Sad to see him go, but why kill him off? The odds are good the actor will eventually return and we have to sit through the same old storyline explaining how, why, and if the actor is playing the same character…which by the way usually lasts for months. Can’t the writers be creative and write the character out while he’s still breathing? Cheers!

    Ryan aka Nathan I have watched you from your first day on GH. I loved you immediately your presence, personality, so handsome and with each passing day your acting was so real and believable! I said …this guy is amazing! Then, when you and Maxie fell in love that sealed the deal. Watching you both together, it really felt that you weren’t acting and you were a couple! That’s because your acting is phenomenal!! My heart breaks for Maxie and your baby that will never know their loving, loyal and dedicated Dad. I will be so upset tomorrow along with all your fans and your family on GH! Ryan, I wish you much luck in your future endeavors and I know you will land a part in a movie or movies with your talent. I’m sorry to see you go, but you will never be forgotten by your loyal fans !! It won’t be the same without you by Dante’s side! I think of your Mom and Nina so sad! Well good luck Ryan!! GH won’t be the same without you!!

    I’m not really torn up about this. Nathan was never one of my favourite characters, and while Ryan’s acting has improved slightly since he first joined GH, he was still very stiff and awkward, and failed to bring the character to life for me.

    This entire last year did absolutely no service to the character, with the ridiculous and very annoying Ask Man Landers story. Hopefully this means we won’t see Amy ever again, since she only seems to be on screen whenever Nathan is involved.

    And maybe Ryan’s exit will also signal Michelle Stafford’s exit, and they can use the additional money to bring back Genie Francis. Total mistake letting her go, especially when Laura is a legacy character, a daytime icon, and was in the middle of a major story. I hated the about-face they did with Alexis suddenly taking her place.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    Great points, Jimmy! You have managed to cover my three least favorite characters on the current GH canvas…all of whom are quite unnecessary and easily dispensible with no genuine attachment to the true roots of Port Charles…Amy has been a complete annoyance whose storyline was beyond ludicrous, Nina has never fit-in anywhere no matter how many efforts to shoehorn her into other people’s business and Alexis is, well, Alexis! To sacrifice Genie’s beloved, top-notch Laura in order to hand this—-at best—— third-rate character an even higher profile than she has ever deserved is an absurdly ridiculous and massively insulting decision.

    The Man Landers storyline was bad, but only existed because of Kirsten’s leave of absence. It wrapped up rather quickly once she returned to a full time schedule (and Jean P retired).

    This is a very bad idea on General Hospital writers. They need to regroup and rewrite the scripts. At times these writers and producers can come up with some dumb plots.

    he was neither near the top echelon… nor – NOR – did he spiral.

    He stood among the cast relevant.

    WHEN – this stupid show – focus’ on the Corinthos Clan.. Yeah, he chose to leave… he was SUCH a welcome respite.. when the show DID DOLE out the rest of the cast. the rest of the cast is a dream.

    I will focus on Frank Valentini agenda to continually feature :

    Sonny / Carly / Jason / Sam / Drew / Michael / Nelle /Finn / Franco. JUST 9 actors out of… the cast as a whole… are missed…. we are given the Corinthos clan who are not good actors.. with any depth or meaning…

    so yes… Nathan and Ryan meant a great deal. A great deal of zeal zest and meant something.

    Nathan – AND – Laura impact the show that much more.. because we see so little of them in comparison

    this show is leaking and is severed to a great degree… that , TPTB MUST be DEALT

    Natalie replied

    I too, am tired of the mob and Corinthos family taking up a lot of time in PC. The Corinthos family is not a legacy family. The Quartermaines, Spencers, and Scorpios are. For me personally, Maxie and the Jones family are extension of the Scorpios. I loved Frisco and Felicia in the 80s and was upset they killed Georgie off. GH was Ryan’s first acting job and I think in his mind he was going to pursue other endeavors once his contract was up, but the Ask Man Landers could have pushed him further. It was a ridiculous storyline and I am sure they needed to use Nathan somewhere with Maxie in Seattle. Ryan wants to try some action roles, and I just imagine he would have loved being on GH when adventure was really high!
    Best wishes Ryan, but please be open to a return!

    Guess I’ve been so caught up with school, did not notice things like Maxie’s parents not being there. Just a mention from Bobbie. Yeah, shame on show for not having them there. But the cast looked genuinely sad, I thought they were all vieing for Emmy’s, I can believe their tears may have been for real. It’s hard to say goodbye to a coworker you admire, even when it means better things for the person.

    First…I have a total crush on Ryan Paevey. LOL; me and almost anyone who’s ever laid eyes on him. I “fell” for him the same time Maxi did…when he first walked into her apartment a few years ago. As for his acting? I enjoyed him right from the beginning. Though it was somewhat “clipped”yet there was just something genuine (a word I’ve used repeatedly regarding him) that came across the screen to me. There have been other good-looking actors…of course…who isn’t in this industry, but Ryan just really hit a chord with me.

    Through the years that clipped delivery smoothed out and his manner, demeanor, warm look, sweet smile just emanated goodness. I know the Man Landers story wasn’t appreciated by many on this site (not sure about the general consensus) but one of the reasons it worked for me was BECAUSE of Ryan. His portrayal of the handsome, humble guy with a heart of gold just made that story incredibly endearing.

    I was so disappointed when I heard people say he was leaving; seriously thought they’d put Nathan in an endless coma until/if Ryan wanted to come back. Perhaps they still will? Perhaps he didn’t die and is in a coma? Is it a ruse to keep Nathan out of harm’s way until Faison is truly dead? Still hoping until the definitive word comes in. Even then, if he is really dead, I’d welcome a “soap resurrection” should Ryan ever want to resume the role.

    Definitely effected me. I thought they’d end today’s episode as they did…that emotional wallop when an unresponsive patient revives long enough to say I love you and then…

    Broke my heart. Loved Nathan. And, to you, Ryan, thank you for bringing Nathan to life and making me care what happened to him.

    I agree with you Rebecca! Crush at first sight!! I agree with you saying the Ask Man Landers story showed the kindness and genuineness of the character, but I think overall it was just a story to give him because Maxie was gone. No real meat to it. And from all my years watching soaps, the “meat” is what the actors are after. Ryan is looking to challenge himself.

    I was hoping the rumors weren’t true. Ryan was quoted as saying, “Nathan West is, yes, gone for now.” The tweet is now unavailable. So I hope and pray that means he is open to a return! Could also mean a possible recast.

    I am truly heartbroken, but think this storyline has given Kirsten an opportunity with her acting. Some may not like it, while others think she knocking it out of the park and heading to a possible Emmy nomination.

    Nathan is definitely one of the good guys. I was actually hoping he would be in a coma for an indefinite amount of time. Another thought I had was he would trade places with Maxie to save her and the baby and go with Faison. Nathan then could escape or be rescued. The latter would bring some action in.

    Ryan, thank you for making so many of us fans care so strongly about our soap!

    she stunned me.

    Hello KIrsten
    emmy nomination absolute

    rebecca1 replied

    Hi Natalie…

    Yes; I read that tweet as well. Not sure if he inadvertently gave away what’s to come…that yes he WILL be back at some point or there will be a recast…or if the character is dead and he was told not to give misleading info.

    I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Ugh. Really moved me. So well done and yet it made me incredibly sad. I still marvel that our emotions can be so effected by fiction. But I guess that’s the whole point! ;)

    I thought about this – again, last night.

    outside of the fab 4 plus Drew. and a few more. who are featured so often.

    the rest of us, the audience . LOST 3 beloved couples.

    Maxie and – Nathan -
    Kevin and – Laura -
    Kiki and – Dillon -

    for comparative measure – Frank continues to feature : for wasteland

    Sonny and Carly
    Drew and Sam
    Michael and Nelle
    Finn
    Jason

    they ^^^ have no depth or meaning. sure pull out Drew… otherwise… these characters will always REEL empty

    I am going to miss seeing Nathan
    I am going to miss watching less of Kevin
    I am MISSING dearly Kiki and Dillon

    I don’t know… when people ask to trim the cast… it’s not going my way

    I have been watching soaps for most of my life. Most of the time I can predict what is going to happen. Example, I guessed who Hendric was about 2 weeks before it was revealed. The departure of Nathan I did not guess however. I am so disappointed. Well here is my pitch that can bring him back from the dead in the future if the powers that be and the actor have a change of heart. The death is faked to fool Phason and keep Nathan safe from him and his jealous brother!! Either Maxi knows or doesn’t for her own safety. I think it’s doable. Soaps have brought characters back from the dead with worse explanations than that. I always joke with my mom whom I watch soaps with that after all these years I can practically write them myself, LOL!!
    Well I will cry even though it is only a show. I wish Ryan Paevey well in all his future endeavors. Never say never—-he can be brought back!!!

    Additionally, I hope they do not make Maxi lose the baby. And once Phason is gone, either by death, jail or escape then Frank Valentini can bring back Genie Frances. The exits will free up the money needed to pay her salary. I believe she is gone to free up the money to pay the actor who plays Phason. When he is gone and the departure of Nathan West that will free up the MONEY!!!

    That is what I said today Crystal ! As I was crying my eyes out and yelling at the TV … NOOOO Don’t let him die ! Bring him back alive !!! I can’t believe they let him die ! Poor Maxie ! I was also so upset that they brought Jason back only to have Sam stay with Drew ! Jason & Sam loved each other so much, now she’s moved on and doesn’t seem to care how much he is hurting !!! They keep getting ride of the good characters and keep the bad ones like Scotty, Franco ( I am so tired of he and Elizabeth’s story line ( you know it’s not going to last ) They should have gotten ride of the character Amy instead of Laura again !!! ( Amy’s always whining when she talks ! ) There story lines are tiring ! I loved Nathan and Maxie’s she finally gets pregnant and they have him die ! Really ? Can’t they ever let anyone be happy ? !!! I have watching GH since the day it started ( shows my age ! LOL But l’m done ! I wish Ryan the best and look forward to seeing him in more Hallmark movies, but wish he wouldn’t have chosen to leave GH. Poor Maxie ( Kristen )

    Wishing him well as he moves on to explore other venues, however, would have been nice to keep the character role open – perhaps just having him disappear for long term rehabilitation in another country would be more acceptable than death by Faison. Hopefully, we will not bring him back to show as another character BUT would be nice if they had to fake his death until Faison and Hendrik is dealt with to keep Maxie safe – BUT I don’t write the scripts— if I did – would have left the opportunity open— just in case – there would have been no harm or foul in doing that.

    A classy, and fine actor. I enjoyed Detective Nathan West. His character actually had character. I didn’t care for the pairing of Nathan and Maxie; however, I always liked Nathan, he was a standpoint guy and I think TPTB did a great job with his send-off. Unfortunately, many fans have boycotted the show due to the Genie Francis debacle, “parking lot Pete” (Wes Ramsey) being given a front burner storyline over many vets, and a host of other issues. It’s too bad that the mob continues to run amok in Port Charles, nepotism ranks higher than longevity and legacy, and the viewers are dealt a bloated cast (who can’t act) with boring storylines.

    This is very disturbing to me. Why, Why, Why??? I understand that Ryan wants off the show but don’t kill the character of Nathan West. Maxi has been through to much. Let Nathan be in a coma for a year or be in rehab until they can recast. How many recasts have they done on this show anyway… one more won’t hurt. I know recasting isn’t the same but give Ryan a chance to go do his own thing, recast the character and when Ryan’s ready to come back, he can. They seem to always do this especially when the wife or girlfriend is expecting a baby. Then they have to go through the pregnancy alone and not have the father to enjoy it with. I was looking forward to Nathan and Maxie going through the pregnancy together and experiencing all the fears and joys of welcoming the baby into their lives. Maxie and Nathan would have been funny to watch during those moments. It just stinks… Good luck to Ryan on his new adventure, I did see him in a few Hallmark movies and they were good. I’d like to see him in Hawaii five o… surfing on the beach…that would be nice to watch… he could join the cast of Five O and still play a COP… oh well… it won’t make me stop watching GH but it will be one less character to look forward to seeing.

Maybe Nathan will be put into hiding courtesy of the WSB and when it is safe for him, he will return in time to see his new born baby? Good luck Ryan, you are a stand up guy who has improved.

    Everyone returns from the dead on GH. They’ve done it a hundred times. If Ryan doesn’t come back, Nathan could come back with a new face no one acknowledges, like when Franco left as James Franco and came back as Roger Howarth, (after Howarth left after playing Todd.) It’s the GH writer’s universe, where no one ever has to stay dead. Enjoy it. It means Nathan may eventually be back. It could be Ryan (ala Steve Burton returning as Jason) or a new face (ala Billy Miller beginning as Jason), but either way Maxi’s baby may get his or her daddy back.

    I went home for lunch to watch a little General Hospital and was completely caught off guard with the death of Detective West. Tears rolled down my cheeks as if his death was something that happened in real life. I returned to my office to search the website to see how I missed that tid-bit of information. I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING and because he is such a fine ASS actor, it will be the fans loss. You cleverly bring back other actors, I think it is time that you get on the stick and come up with a plot to bring Det. West back. You know, use this scene as a make believe death to catch Faison and his people (hint, hint). 4 years is just not nearly enough time to grace the TV screen with his gorgeousness.

    I am mourning :(

    I hoping they find a way to bring in another actor to take the place of Nathan ( Which will be hard to do.) Dante also loss a friend that was like a brother. (Maybe they can say they were hiding Nathan so they could bring out his brother.

    Aweful, just aweful. I never expected an ending like that. Very disappointed in the writing, they should have put in a replacement to play his role just in case he decides to come back to the show.. granted, it takes a while to get use to a new face playing that character, but it would’ve been nice to see Maxi happy on the show. I really hope he returns to the show just like they did with Jason Morgan which I am so thrilled he is back.

    GH needs more ‘good guy’ characters, not more mob/criminal characters. They let Ryan and Genie go in the space of a very short amount of time and bumped a terribly non-talented actor (sorry, guy) to a front and center role. I see where this is going. I’ve been watching soaps for decades and this kind of left turn plotting is never good.

    Shocking and very upsetting. Maxie and Nathan were the dynamic duo of a show who’s majority of characters have never ending plot lines of “are you kidding me” drama. Yes, that is what the basis of a soap opera is and I enjoy every bit of its ability to allow me to escape into never, neverland; however, the often comedic chemistry between them… gave the show (and other shows of this nature), a lite heartiness that I enjoyed and is needed… Can you just make this a nightmare that Maxi had instead? You know, like “Who shot JR?”

    Anyway, best of luck and many blessings to Ryan on his next adventure…

    While I don’t begrudge Ryan P wanting to leave and not renewing his contract, I do begrudge the decision to kill the character of Nathan. A coma, a recast?

    Please bring Nathan list back. I was devastated when you took him off ,he was one of the best parts of the show . I was hoping maybe he really didn’t die and you took him away to be able to capture his brother . Which would make sense seeing they were also devastated that he died which made it convincing to everyone that he was dead and at this point they be able to capture the other brother and solve the rest of the cases. Ryan Pavey is a great actor please don’t let us go without him bring them back sooner or later.

    Have to agree with my other MF namesake, all-be-it a capital R. Or as someone else suggested the WSB could have faked Nathan’s death, even from maxie, etcs., and put him in some sort of protective custody until Anna solved the other brother case. Really don’t like it when they kill of a character in case they/he want to come back. Even Faison.

    Thank you, rebecca1. In Soap years, too much for me. It was hard to move from Rebecca to Finola, though I love her as an actress. Robert, yes, the new Dr. in town, definitely, not Finn.

    rebecca1 replied

    Hi, Sue…

    You’re welcome. I don’t look at couples in terms of age (unless someone is a minor!). I just think love is love…and in a life that’s fleeting who really cares? Why should we?

    As for soapland…I never liked Finn and Hayden (regardless of age). Just thought they were a boring couple. Wasn’t familiar with Rebecca Budwig so had no feeling for the actress one way or other. She IS good…but her character wasn’t compelling for me.

    Finn and Anna? I think they’re charming together. I like their banter and I like how two unlikely people found each other. Anna hasn’t dated anyone that hasn’t been criminal (Duke), (Luke) or a spy (Scorpio) for…ever? Not that I can remember. It might be a nice change IF they go there. Not married to the idea (no pun intended) but I like them together enough to want to see where it goes.

    And, I’m not sure if I understood you correctly when you said in “soap years”. I don’t think Finn is portrayed as younger, or Robin’s age. They never mentioned it but in my opinion he looks his age…never took him for much younger than Anna. (Rebecca Budwig is, I think, 45).

    Anyway, thanks for your reply! ;)

    Hi Debra…So sorry for your loss.

    I know when we lose people in real life these fictional deaths are that much more painful as we can remember/relate/feel the reality of it it hits home…. And when you watch a soap and look for familiarity there and then someone there, too, dies..the loss can hit you because having those fictional characters ever present is comforting…

    Hopefully you’lll be so engrossed in the stories to come and remaining familiar faces that the loss of a beloved character will eventually be a fond memory of a beloved character in the archives of your GH history.

Watching today was truly heartbreaking. Of course the actors did a great job making us really feel their pain. Watching Maxie, Nina, and Dante deal with their grief was very hard.

You never want one if your favorites leave the show. It’s awful enough that Maxie loses the most wonder man and her true soulmate, but carrying Nathan’child. They were such a real couple, so in love, funny and in each other’s eyes they were perfect! Everyone is asking why did Maxie have to be pregnant? According, to Ryan he spoke with Valentini and told him he wanted to leave GH and peruse different roads. Ryan said Valentini could not have more nicer or accommodating, unfortunately Nathan and Maxie were the happiest they ever could be and expecting their first child, Ryan, I wish you so much luck….not that you need it!

My hope is that Anna secretly had the WSB fake his death take him somewhere to protect him from Faison and possibly Heinrich (we don’t know how evil this guy is yet.) Lulu is being blamed, yes, she wrote the article, but also tried to stop it and “Heinrich” told her it was too late. I doubt it was too late, I think it fit his plans to revenge Faison.

    Very disappointed. Maxie never ever gets her happy ending. He was perfect for her. Plus since the love story between Jason and Sam has been killed and can never be viewed ever again that bond by this viewer. Really thought they were giving a new love story between Nathan and Maxie. Could of kept him in a coma or something. Oh well all these disappointments happening on GH hope they can keep vewiers interested and not give up watching.

    I’ve watched G H since 1975. In recent years, I’ve been thankful for dvr, so I can skip past story lines I’mn or interested in. There have been plenty in the past couple of years, but I’ve really enjoyed Maxxie/Nathen, especially how Ms. Storm’s absent was handled and her return. Also, really enjoy Lulu/ Dante….however, I am very saddened and disappointed that Nathen is gone. Not just temporarily, but actually gone. Don’t know how, even in the soap opera world, he could come back. Too bad!! The new roles for others, like Dr. Finn…..Too ‘out there’, but we get used to it. Just hate that Maxxie would lose Nathen……can I suggest that he had to ‘die’ for his protection and will return….sooner than later?
    At 62yrs old now, this is the only soap opera I’ve continued over the years. Very disappointed!

    I think if he is offered enough salary he would come back. It could be that he wasn’t really dead WSB made them think he was dead and wisked him off until Ryan chooses to come back.
    Advise to Ryan never quit your day job until you find a better and leave in good standing (which you did) Incase other projects don’t workout. Take a page from Steve Burton! Best of luck!

    I said the first time I saw Ryan he would not stay forever. Yes, he is gorgeous and talented and had also been spreading his wings to other things. G.H. had finally given him a more involved story line and embedded in the community. Yes, a recast would have been sensible, (but we all know G.H. is not great at that) or put him in a coma for a while. I understand his decision but poor “Maxie” can’t catch a break!

    Why can’t the writers infuse storylines taken from what’s happening now. Nothing political of course. How about how women are harrased in the work place, like nurses, Secretary, police, government workers. Also how about real drama like ” the fall ” with Gillian Anderson. Cases that come from real life.

    I prefer the original character
    To me changing their character that’s like recasting Laura and Luke Spencer
    It won’t work
    They could have came up with a better story line like he could have gotten special assignment for the WSB
    Under cover
    And went away for awhile like Frisco did which the doors was left open for him to come back as the original
    Nathan not no recast
    Whenever he was ready he could pursue his other acting opportunities and still have a home at General Hospital but until they bring him back
    I’m not watching it they need to bring back Alan Quartermaine they need to bring that Frisco and Robert Scorpio and Nicholas and
    AJ Quartermaine I am sick of these stupid storylines they killing people off that we love and we’ve been watching for years they should have killed somebody else off there’s other people whose character who’s not worth keeping on the show so I’m boycotting
    to think they got rid of One Life to Live and All My Children
    What you think somebody need to pick them up and bring them back hell if they could bring back Roseanne Barr show they should be able to bring back all my children and One Life to Live and

At least, in soap opera land, they can get away with this if Ryan decides to return in a few years. If they can bring Olivia St. John (Jerome) back to life, then bringing Detective West back will be easy breezy. I wish him luck in his future endeavors, and now I hope the other real good looking guy, Curtis, doesn’t leave, too, except he’s so smooth, he could be the next 007!

    Why did you have to kill his character off!!! Why didn’t the producers just replace him with another Sexy, handsome man? Why did you put Maxi through so much PAIN???? She didn’t deserve this.

    I always hate to see someone go when we watch them all time. He is so handsome and Maxie was luck to co- star with him. I was hoping you would bring him back like you did with Jason.

    I understand that Ryan did not want to renew his contract and that the writers chose to kill off his character. However, does anyone else find it ludicrous that Faison did not know what his ton looked like or that he was a cop?
    After all, the article anoucing who his father was probably had a picture and if not – Faispn, being the master spy he is could certainly have googled him!

    I am very upset that Nathan is gone, GH keeps giving me a reason not to watch anymore. I know it was Ryan’s decision to leave but like soooo many other characters why couldn’t they bring in another actor or pretend Nathan is dead and bring him back. PLEASE bring Nathan back, we accepted another actor for Jason we can do the same with Nathan. My heart is broken for Maxie and baby. I even felt sorry for Liesel, please don’t let this be the last we see of Nathan, because I have a feeling that Maxie will be next to go due to storyline.

    One of the best actors on the show since I’ve been watching since the 70s. Same as Maurice-when I Saul Ryan with his parts on lifetime movies I knew he wouldn’t be around long. I want to see him on the big screen more often! He is a star-too good for the rolls he was getting. Sorry riders you really dropped the ball on this one

    I was so sad that you left gh most of all that you left Maxie and your unborn baby, but I do believe that you will come back as your twin, and fall in love with Maxie again and remarry her.because you to look good together.or maybe your in hiding making sure you’re half brother by vaison, is not dangerous.

    I was most disappointed that Ryan Peavey has left the show. He’s a great actor and so good looking. He will be missed so much. I would always enjoy the scenes that Nathan was in. I wish him the best and hope to see him in other things. Good luck !
