Sounds like Wes Ramsey's supersecret role isn't that big.

Did you really think after weeks of secrecy and the fact that SOD just mentioned we will see him around but he will not fully be revealed for a few weeks that they would tell you in a casting blurb who the character was and what he would be doing?

Seriously, they are just giving out general information. Sure, he could end up being a bad character but I think the level of secrecy and the fact they are probably going to have him lurking around until what looks like the episode where he interacts with Philip and Stephanie means that he will have a big impact on someone or something.

This is just like what JER used to do with having characters mysteriously lurk for weeks and then we see them and have to figure out what exactly they are up to and who exactly they are. It will be awhile before we know the whole story with him and that is a good thing. It adds intrigue.

I really can't believe people expected more info then this considering how the situation has been handled thus far LOL. It's classic JER mystery person 101 :laugh: . This guy has not even appeared in spoilers despite his debut on air tomorrow. It's clear they are going to build the mystery and intrigue surrounding the character and slowly unveil who he is and what not so there is no way we are going to be fed much info about him right now.

It's not even about getting my hopes up.

It's kind of common sense. His casting came out of nowhere. We've heard nothing about him. He's not mentioned in any spoilers or any of the mags other then SOD saying he debuts tomorrow and won't be fully revealed for a few weeks. Now we have him as a gardener. I severely doubt all this secrecy and casting someone like Wes Ramsey was for a role as a gardener LOL. There is more to it then that. This show never keeps things a secret like they have this. It may end up sucking but people calling this a flop already when we know nothing is kind of unfair.

I hope for your sake you're right, but this show is well known for it's great disappointments. Especially where new characters are concerned.

^Well, again, that is subjective and it's not even about me. If it fails, I could care less. It's not like his presence makes or breaks the show for me. I've been watching this show for over two decades and been through many changes, good periods, bad periods, etc. I'm not going to stop watching regardless LOL.

There are things that many call flops or disappointments that many call successes. We all are different in what we like and dislike, which is what keeps things interesting and allows for good discussion and debate. '

My point was that there is no way anyone can make a call on this as of yet. There is basically no info on this character yet so calling the character a big fat nothing or a flop already is just unfair when there is like nothing there to support that kind of assertion.

I think many were hoping it was a character coming back; like Eric Brady, Jeremy Horton, etc. I do think there is more to it then Wes just playing a gardener though.

See, I can see that. My issue was that it seemed some made up their minds just on the basis of the blurb posted here that said he was a gardener LOL. It just seems premature to condemn something when we have nothing to go on as of yet.

We'll see. My feeling is that he may be more then a gardener for Victor. I think he may be doing more for him. Perhaps he is the one who poisons Stefano. I have a feeling Wes is going to play a very dark character. I'm thinking he will be kind of like Steve was when he debuted in 1985 and worked for Victor.

I'm going to enjoy the mystery about Wes- on the boards. 'Cause I do believe it will suck ass on screen. So I appreciate the optimism!

More interesting to me is the Mia-related stuff. She knows people. That could be good, or it could become Ghoul Girl, Fat Girl, Nerd, Jock, Main Character, Sidekick- all that crap they did with Salem High a few years back.

I was thinking "Tad" and "Kinsey" would just be one-shot characters only around to pass on some plot-related Mia information. Given that their names are Tad and Kinsey I would assume Mia will end up being from an old money family--those are the kinds of names the writers would pick after watching Trading Places or something. Anyway, I'd be very surprised if they ended up having any place on canvas after they tell Will whatever it is they're going to tell him about Mia.

I´m with Phoenix here.

First, there is no reason to even cast "gardener". Henderson could easily do that as well. Or we could just hear Phillip doing some one-way call and voialá, the romantic dinner is ready. There has to be a reason why the character is needed and why he is played by a name and not some anonymous dayplayer.

I would guess he is a part of the summer storyline for Phillip/Steph/Melanie/Max/Arianna. SOD even said DB absence may mean more airtime for him, so I assume the original plan was to pair Max with Arianna, but because DB will be unavailable this Wes Ramsey character will replace him in whatever storyline Higley/Whittesel have prepared.

I'm a little disappointed that Ramsey is going to be a new character. I do think that Owen is going to serve more purpose than just that of a gardner. I bet he will be the one that comes between Philip and Stephanie and I'm okay with that.

I just really wanted him to be Jeremy though.
