Is Wes Ramsey Leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL? — The Actor Speaks Out!


Last week was a pretty great week on the GENERAL HOSPITAL set for Wes Ramsey (Peter), and he took to Instagram to let his followers know it. “There’s no greater sense of creative fulfillment than reaching the end of a truly epic week on set doing what you love,” the actor wrote on Feb. 6. “A big shout out to all the GH cast and crew. I’m inspired by and grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing in the adventure of this Port Charles journey.”

On its own, Ramsey’s statement seems rather innocuous and one simply just full of gratitude. But taking into account his scheming alter ego’s ever-widening web of lies in Port Charles, many of the actor’s followers thought he had posted a goodbye message and was leaving the soap! After all, the only people in town who seem to want Maxie to marry Peter are Maxie and Peter themselves!

“This sounds like a goodbye. Are they killing your character?” asked one of Ramsey’s followers, while another wrote, “This better not be a goodbye. I’ve liked Peter from the beginning.”

But… plot twist! As more and more of Ramsey’s supporters commented on his post with well-wishes for his future endeavors, the actor updated his original message — clarifying that he is not, in fact, leaving the soap. “Based on a tidal wave of comments, I must now preface — this is not a farewell post,” Ramsey added at the top of his original statement. “Just had a great week at ‘the office,’ so thank you for all the kind and supportive words. GH has the best fans on the planet.”

Ramsey joined the cast of GH in November 2017 as the mysterious publisher who was soon revealed to be the son of Cesar Faison and Anna — or is it Alex? — Devane and the person responsible for Jason’s five-year disappearance and Drew’s presumed death. Peter has continued to spin one lie after another in the four years since he’s arrived in Port Charles, with his schemes to cover up his lies become bolder and bolder. Maxie seems to be the only person in town who believes that her fiancé is a changed man, but is she about to get her heart crushed yet again? Stay tuned!
