Ryan Paevey

Birth Name: Ryan Jacob Paevey
Birth Place: Torrance, California, United States
Profession: Actor


Born Ryan Jacob Paevey in Santa Monica, California, and raised in Los Angeles, Ryan had a normal childhood. His hobbies included video games, cooking, surfing (which he did with his dad) and hiking. He took up modeling in high school, which led to commercials, but Paevey had no intention of becoming an actor.

The modeling snowballed into bigger and bigger projects for Ryan. He worked with Cher, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke. Completed national commercials for Izod and Corona, which started Paevey thinking that he really could make a living as an actor.

In 2012, Ryan landed a role in the feature film 4 Dead Girls: The Soul Taker. He booked a guest appearance on The Client List, before scoring the role of Nathan West on General Hospital in 2013, his first series regular role.

He began building a solid resume with two TV movies, Unleashing Mr. Darcy and Harvest Love, and two feature films, Locked in and Bogie and Bacall. Looks like his days of working construction and bartending are over.

He left GH in 2018 and the show killed off his character.

Ryan, a self-proclaimed “nature boy,” spends his spare time hiking, traveling, surfing and riding his motorcycle. He launched a brand in 2016, selling his personal photos he took while traveling, handmade jewelry and outdoor gear.
