General Hospital rumors hint that Nathan West and Maxie Jones may have more of a story to be told after Paevey discloses his feelings on a potential return to General Hospital.

General Hospital news reports reveal details of a recent interview with Soaps In Depth. Paevey left the canvas in 2018 and explained why he made the decision to part ways.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Paevey disclosed his feelings about ending his run in the role of Nathan West. He said, “I was ready to go, and I think GH knew that,” Paevey explained. “It was a completely amicable situation. I mean, I owe this show so much. When GH gave me this job, I didn’t even call myself an actor — I didn’t even know if I wanted to be an actor. And as those of you who were watching back then know, it’s been a journey. I’ve learned a lot!”

When reflecting on his final scene as Detective Nathan West, Ryan revealed,“My death was the best thing I’ve ever gotten to play. The stuff in the hospital was so well-written. I was really amazed and, to be honest, honored they wrote it for me. Plus, they managed to get me out of my shirt one last time. Couldn’t leave without that!”

General Hospital spoilers reveal that when asked about a potential General Hospital return, Ryan Paevey explained it is not out of the question.

“I mean, that’s something that we would have to discuss,” he told Soaps.com. “You know, my life has changed quite a bit since I left, and it would be tricky to balance everything out.”

Paevey continued, “We don’t have any plans at present, but I’m always open to work. I don’t know if anybody’s picked up on this yet, but I a little bit of a workhorse. I don’t sit still very well.”

When remembering Nathan West, Ryan describes his character as, “a nice guy.” He points out that West really never had that typical soap character type checkered past. The role was kind of one dimensional. That being said, his openness to returning to General Hospital doesn’t come without a stipulation. Paevey admitted that he would return as Nathan West if the character returned with ambiguity.
