Ryan Paevey (Nathan) is doing a little moonlighting from GENERAL HOSPITAL in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy! Naturally the actor will be playing another dashing romantic lead, but this time instead of a cop, Paevey will be portraying a billionaire dog breeder!
Based on the book by Teri Wilson, Unleashing Mr. Darcy is the story of a young woman who thinks the only companion she needs is her dog, but then she meets the charming dog breeder Donovan Darcy. Will he be the man to change her mind?
Actress Frances Fisher (Suzette, GUIDING LIGHT) posted a photo of herself and on-screen “nephew” Paevey on Twitter, and the author herself has taken to social media herself to sing the actor’s praises. “Wait until you see Mr. Darcy in his tuxedo!” Wilson tweeted. “Oh my gosh, melt.”
The film was shooting in Canada last week, and seems likely to air around Valentine’s Day, which would be appropriate. And if you need any more incentive to check it out, author Wilson also tweeted: “I’m watching them shoot the wet Mr. Darcy scene, in which he climbs out of the pool. (Just about every woman on set has thanked me for writing it.) So things are going pretty great here…”
