Congratulations to GENERAL HOSPITAL actor Wes Ramsey (Peter), whose new film, Perception, is being released on iTunes and all VOD platforms on Tuesday, August 6! "It's the performance I've waited my whole life to give," he confided to Soaps In Depth. "A character I always believed was in me. And once it was out… I'm really proud of it." Shot in Ramsey's hometown of Louisville, KY, the thriller was filmed shortly before the actor joined the cast of GH.
Directed by Ilana Rein and co-written by Rein and Brian Smith, Perception centers around Ramsey’s character of Daniel, a struggling real estate developer who must evict Nina (Meera Rohit Kumbhani), a small-time psychic struggling to provide for her young son. But when she offers him a free reading and senses the spirit of his dead wife, Daniel becomes obsessed with reconnecting with his lost love. Both he and Nina must decide how far they’ll go to get what they want, and the spirit might also have plans of her own in this supernatural thriller!
In addition to playing Peter August on GH, Ramsey has also been moonlighting in some independent feature films like Two Pictures and Last Seen in Idaho. While Perception premiered back at the DTLA Film Festival back in October of 2018, the actor is excited everyone will finally get to see the movie. "I'm happy it found distribution and that it's going to be able to be seen," he enthused. "When you make a movie, you don't know if it's going to take one year to come out or six months or two years. You just hope that it doesn't get blown off or put on a shelf and that it finds a home.
"The fact that right after I completed the movie was when I began the process of auditioning and screen-testing and ending up on contract at GH," Ramsey added, "it's nice to now, two years later, be able to use my Port Charles family and community to help me support the release of this film that I'm really proud of. And everyone's excited about it." Check out this steamy trailer!
