Hallmark is breathing new life into a classic with its latest romantic film, Unleashing Mr. Darcy, a modern day spin on Pride & Prejudice that stars none other than General Hospital's Ryan Paevey (Nathan West).
The hunky daytime actor joins actress Cindy Busby for the revived tale that tells the story of Elizabeth, a woman who's fishing for direction in her life and gets the opportunity to professionally show her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a fancy New York dog show. Paevey plays dog show judge Donovan Darcy, who comes across as aristocratic and rude -- which sets off a chain of misunderstandings during the competition that complicates his and Elizabeth's mutual attraction. In true Jane Austen fashion, Elizabeth and Donovan begin to see the error of their ways, and it turns out Mr. Darcy is far more kind and interesting than Elizabeth ever imagined.
Check out a special sneak preview of the film below then catch the premiere of Unleashing Mr. Darcy on Saturday, January 23, at 9PM EST/8PM CST on the Hallmark Channel.
Meanwhile, for those who have noticed that Paevey hasn't been seen much in Port Charles lately, you can rest assured that he'll be reappearing on the soap soon. The actor took to Instagram today with a photo his latest GH script and the caption, "Told you I was still around... #ghwildwinter #GH #backatit"
