Magic Milo is about to add “disappearing act” to his repertoire. Drew Cheetwood, who plays Sonny’s bodyguard/Epiphany’s main squeeze, Milo Giambetti, is packing up his family and moving to Michigan.
“The game change was starting a family and having kids,” says Cheetwood, who joined his real-life and reel-life brother, Derk Cheetwood (Max) on GH in 2006. “I’m in full support of how I was brought up the values, the mentality. I thought somewhere in the Midwest would make sense one day. And all the things that I am, I can do there, too.”
But all hope is not lost for Milo fans. Cheetwood is very happy to say that there is a good possibility that after his November move, you’ll still see Milo around! “I gave [executive producer] Frank Valentini the rundown of where my heart was,” Cheetwood says. “He said that he understood 100 percent because he has a ton of family on the East Coast that he misses every day. I said, ‘I hope it doesn’t mean that Milo can never be a part of the show again. If you guys can group some shows together, maybe I can fly out.'” Valentini let Cheetwood know there was a very good chance that could happen.
Meanwhile, let’s all wish Cheetwood luck in his new home and his continued success in both the health/fitness world and with acting! “It’s interesting that you can act anywhere, really,” he points out. “They just shot Batman Vs. Superman in Detroit. You don’t necessarily have to be in L.A. or New York to make this thing work. Sometimes getting out of that element, getting out of the belly of the beast can be more beneficial.”
