“My hat’s off to Kirsten, because she’s an incredible actress. The work she pulls off day in and day out, week in and week out, I’m really in awe of her,” he said.
“I feel fortunate to work with her. She and I both are able to rely on each other and on the writing — because for us, it starts and ends with the writing. We have to take what they give us and use ourselves to make it into what we believe it could be,” he continued.
Unlike his character who initially had doubts with his budding romance with Maxie, Ramsey knew he and Storms can pull it off. “Immediately, when we realized we were going to work together and that the stakes were going to be so high, we knew it was going to give us a chance to really go for it,” he explained. “And we did. It’s been a blast!”
