General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Ryan Paevey chose to leave the role of Nathan to pursue other opportunities. Life as a soap actor can be pretty taxing, so some cast members tend to say goodbye after a while. That’s especially true if easier or more profitable offers come along. Why wouldn’t they take advantage of them?
Unfortunately, some angry social media users don’t see it that way. Paevey recently had to defend himself against vicious Twitter attacks. He spoke up after he was criticized for making the decision to exit. One viewer suggested Paevey was a “dumb nobody” when he first arrived at GH. She claimed it was wrong for Paevey to turn his back on Port Charles.
Paevey countered that “maybe he was a smart nobody” and added that “maybe he still is.” He also responded to another Twitter user who compared his acting ability to that of a tree. Paevey had quite a comeback for that one. “Hey I like trees,” Paevey said. “They’re strong, grounded, and throw excellent shade.” He threw in a smiley emoji with horns to make it a little more entertaining.
Of course, plenty of fans have enjoyed Paevey’s run and support his future endeavors. He shouldn’t feel obligated to stay at General Hospital forever if he doesn’t want to. Many former soap stars have come and gone over the years. It’s just part of the biz, so it’s best to accept it and move on.
If we’re lucky, sometimes departing actors make big comebacks. That’s what happened with Steve Burton (Jason), so maybe Paevey will return someday as well. Regardless, there’s no need to get nasty! Other Twitter users chimed in to offer their support after the attacks. They wished Paevey luck on his new journey and urged him to forget any negativity he’s been facing.
Paevey was quick to point out that he loved the supportive side of the GH fanbase. He just likes to turn up the heat on the haters! “Oh I’m just having a bit of fun,” Paevey said. “I’m a lucky guy to have received the support I have…don’t sweat a few bad apples.”
It sounds like Paevey’s got a great attitude! What do you think about Paevey’s departure and the backlash he’s been receiving?
