A relative newcomer to the entertainment business, Ryan Paevey launched his career in December 2013 playing Detective Nathan West on ABC's longest running soap opera “General Hospital.” His character instantly became a fan favorite, spawning counterfeit social media accounts across Twitter and Facebook as well as attracting thousands of followers. Paevey spent four years on the show and his departure became one of the most mourned deaths in the history of the soap.
During his time on “General Hospital,” he also starred in two Hallmark Channel Original Movies: “Unleashing Mr. Darcy” (2016) and “Harvest Love” (2017). In 2018, he appeared in the sequel “Marrying Mr. Darcy” and “Hope At Christmas.” His latest movie, “Friend to Fiancé” aired recently on the Hallmark Channel and he can currently be seen in a guest arc on BET’s new drama “Games People Play.”
Born and raised in Southern California, Paevey spent most of his childhood exploring the great outdoors. Acting was never on his radar growing up and he was happiest when outside, whether that be camping, hiking or rock climbing. Although a true outdoorsman at heart, Paevey’s striking features caught the attention of a modeling agency and he started to do a little modeling on the side for extra cash while he worked construction. Aside from print work, he was featured in Christina Aguilera’s music video “Your Body.”
On his days off, Paevey can be found (or actually, not found) scouting out uncharted territories for the occasional cliff jumping session, satisfying his craving for thrill seeking -- sitting still is not an option. He is also a self-proclaimed nerd, loving all things tech and video games.
