His New Movie With The Old Maxie!
As Maxie finally returned to the canvas after Kirsten Storms’ personal leave, Paevey put down Nathan’s badge to shoot Hallmark Channel’s Harvest Love — alongside former Maxie stand-in and DAYS OF OUR LIVES fave Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa)! While the timing wasn’t ideal, the actor promises GH won’t leave Nathan and Maxie fans hanging. “My absence isn’t affecting what was in the pipeline for Naxie,” he reveals. “For the first two days after our July hiatus, [we] shot a bunch of stuff to ensure there would be content to distribute while I’m away.”
In fact, a show spokesperson confirms that Paevey’s side gig “won’t affect GH’s production, as we have shot ahead for his scenes. There won’t be a noticeable absence felt on-air.”
After shooting 76 pages at GH on July 25, Paevey hopped a flight to start production in Vancouver with his new leading lady — who tapped in as Maxie before Paevey joined the show. “In the
soap community, everybody knows everybody, but we don’t really know each other if we haven’t worked together. But after three hours on the plane, I felt like I knew Jen.”
Lilley’s Dash Of Love and Paevey’s Unleashing Mr. Darcy were massive Hallmark hits — and they’re hoping Harvest Love will blow both out of the water! In the romantic comedy slated as part of the cabler’s October line-up, Lilley plays Luna, a widowed mom who brings her young son to her grandfather’s farm in hopes of reconnecting with him. Of course, love blossoms between Luna and Paevey’s farm manager, Will. “Initially,” Paevey teases, “you’re going to think they’re a bad match… ”
Love blooms this fall between these two soapers on Hallmark Channel’s Harvest Love.
