GH’s William Lipton Starts a Band With Theo and Erik Olson — See the Adorable Video!
Anyone who’s watched the Nurses Ball episodes of GENERAL HOSPITAL knows that the actors on this soap are also very talented musicians. And thanks to the help of William Lipton (who has his own band, by the way), there are about two be two more stars — Erik and Theo Olson, who play Wiley! “Me and the boyzz are working on some stuff in the GH studio,” Lipton shared. “Love those guys!”
In the video, Lipton is hanging out with the twins backstage and joining them in making a little music. The teen is on the triangle and drum while one of the tots adds percussion with a maraca before the other comes along to join in the “jam session” by picking up the other maraca and using it to bang on the drum. Everyone looks like they’re having the best time!

On their Instagram, the twins are big fans of Lipton, declaring: “It’s always a great day when we get to work with William Lipton! Can’t sing his praises enough! What a gem!” The account, obviously run by the boys’ parents, has also shared some behind the scenes secrets like from the episodes when Wiley was abducted. “When Erik was in Coby Ryan McLaughlin’s (ex-Shiloh) arms, he said ‘Wow!’ because he liked the water reflection maker (since they were on a boat). Coby is always great with the boys and will be greatly missed — although they’ll be happy to not have to share their fruit snacks with him anymore!”
Check out some more absolutely adorable photos of the boys and their GH castmates in the gallery below where the twins have even more wonderful things to say about them. (They love birthdays!)
