Actor Wes Ramsey ("General Hospital") chatted with Digital Journal about starring in the psychological thriller "Perception," and being a part of the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation benefit. He also spoke about being an actor in the digital age.
"Perception came about in the summer of 2017. I was actually in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. It was very serendipitous," he said. "They were filming locally there and they were looking for their lead male. I read the script and I immediately wanted to meet with the writer, director, and the producer. It has been an incredible experience to be a part of something that I am so proud of."
Ramsey collaborated with writer and director Ilana Rein, as well as co-writer Brian Smith in the thriller Perception, where he stars as Daniel opposite Meera Rohit Kumbhani who plays Nina the psychic. "It was incredible to work with Ilana. She is very cool and a smart woman," he said.
"I was excited to work with a female writer and director. Ilana did an excellent job directing this movie. It is not easy to make a film. This project required a lot of very intense high-level emotional work and we pulled it all off. Meera was incredible as well," Ramsey added.

Ramsey stars on the hit ABC daytime drama General Hospital as Peter August. On September 14, Ramsey was a part of the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation benefit in Pennsylvania, along with his fellow General Hospital co-stars William deVry, Donnell Turner, Tamara Braun, and Eden McCoy. "That was a very special experience," he admitted. "It is always awesome when you get to travel and meet fans. This was extra special since we are raising money and awareness for such a worthy cause. We did that successfully and we had a great time."
"I was glad to be a part of the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation benefit and I hope to be able to do more work with them in the future," he said.
Regarding the title of the current chapter of his life, he said, "I've Arrived."
On being an actor in the digital age, Ramsey said, "It feels great. I have been fortunate to work with Crystal Chappell, who I met on Guiding Light. She allowed me to be a part of her web series Venice over the years. It is exciting to see so much content being spread out: Facebook and Apple are getting in the game, and so is Disney+. Everybody is stepping up and competing. That means more work for a lot of creative people out there."
"I actually just did a web series called Sidetracked with my friend Tracie Thoms from Juilliard. We finished another season of it and we are hoping to promote that in the months to come. It is fun to get with your friends and do something outside of the box," he said.
On October 20, Ramsey will be a part of the "General Hospital Fantasy" event in Tarrytown, New York, where he will be joined by William deVry, Donnell Turner, James Patrick Stuart, and Kathleen Gati. To learn more about this upcoming fan event, check out the Fantasy Events Inc. website. "That is a new part of the country that we haven't traveled to before. I am excited to be in a new area that I haven't been to and meet new fans," he said.
