Who Is Ryan Paevey Of General Hospital?
If you are one of those wondering how old this fella is, Ryan Jacob Paevey-Vlieger was born on September 24, 1984. His place of birth was in Torrance, California, USA and he was born to Les Vlieger and Linda Paevey, his parents. About his nationality, he is American and of mixed ethnicity. Growing up, he was raised by his parents in Los Angeles alongside his younger sister Kaitlyn.
While there is not much information as regards his educational background and qualifications, he was known to be highly skilled in track and cross country during his time in high school. As a matter of fact, he didn’t show much interest in entertainment and often spent his leisure time playing video games or surfing with his dad. He once revealed that he frequently offered his dad a helping hand in his mechanic workshop while he was a teenager.
His foray into modelling began while he was still in high school; as the story goes, he was pestered by friends to venture into modelling due to his height and physique but he turned them down. Eventually, he gave in to reason and decided to scout for a modelling agency and as luck would have it, he was picked. His career as a model was surprisingly more fun than he expected as it gave him the opportunity to mingle and come in close contact with very important personalities in the world of entertainment such as Katy Perry. In no time, he began appearing in music videos of high profile artists; the most notable being his appearance on Robin Thicke’s Sex Therapy video and Christina Aguilera’s Your Body music video.
It can be said that his appearance in popular music videos is what lured him to make that transition into full-blown acting, with him going on to score minor roles on television shows such as The Girl with the Gloves, 4 Dead Girls: The Soul Taker, The Client list and Hollywood Heights.
His big break eventually came in December 2013 after he was cast to play the role of detective Nathan West in the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. For several years, he served as a regular character on the show until January 2018 when he announced his decision to leave for reasons best known by him.
